Default Viking vs Roman Centurion

This is a simpler thread than some of my previous comparisons, you just tell me from your own knowledge who you think has the upper hand. Treat every scenario differently, please.

Spoiler:




Viking armor: Chain mail (entire body), leather (torso), steel helmet.
Viking shield: Large, round wooden shield.
Viking weapons: Viking longsword, Dane axe, Viking spear, dagger.

Centurion armor: Steel laminar armor (torso and shoulders), steel helmet.
Centurion shield: Large, rectangular iron shield.
Centurion weapons: Gladius, Dolabra, Pilum.



Scenario 1 - Single combat: In an amphitheatre-style arena, a Nordic Viking and a Roman Centurion face off in single combat. The warriors start at a 30 m distance and have maximum preparation for battle (including the Viking to enter a battle trance and the Centurion to work out strategy).

Scenario 2 - Group fighting: 5 Vikings and 5 Centurions face each other in the same fashion as above.
Scenario 3 - Army battle: A Viking army of 1,000 men march ashore in Italy, and face an army of 1,000 Roman Centurions in the fields outside an undefended settlement. The Romans get 5 Scorpions but no preparation, while the Vikings have maximum preparation but no artillery.

WHO WILL WIN?

My own conclusions:
Spoiler:

I go with Viking victory in all three scenarios. The third is really the only time when the Romans may have a chance, but they still face technology hundreds of years into the future. Viking chain mail will stop the Roman pilums and the Scorpions are too few to make a difference in long-range combat. And once it comes to melee fighting, I see no way for the disciplined legionaries to withstand a berserker charge of strong, ferocious Vikings of near-superhuman bloodlust.
Final conclusion: Viking victory, all scenarios.

Well Army would all depend on the man leading it.

The romans were strong but the wooden shuild will help absorb the vibration on contact. More then the steel will unless renforced with like lether or wood in it. As for the armour, it doesn't matter, chain mail is and steel is all weak.

This wil lsolve this all, are there any archers? Because if only romans did then they win, becaus ewith the long boy knights or any armour becoems weak. because arrows benetrait throw chainmail. They ar ment to stop a blade but it really depends

You're captain of the football team and are heavily involved in other sports. You actually get pretty decent grades, but most people don't know that. Most girls really really REALLY want to date you, but you don't notice or care for them. They're just fangirls. Like Sasuke.
You have a cool headed manner, and it almost appears as serious. When you're out in the games playing, you're just as serious but extremely aggressive. This is what leads the NDF football team to victory (lol in reality the team would suck ass but lets just imagine it otherwise)
You're popular and a lot of people look up to you and see you as most likely to win "Best All Around" in the yearbook. You walk into a party and everyone shouts "AYYY IT'S COLLIIIIIN" and you get attacked by high fives by your teammates and crew and hugs by desperate females. But most people don't know a lot about you personally because you don't let anyone in a lot.
