Football – Iceland – Urvalsdeild Betting Tips

A quick trip to the Icelandic top flight next with fifth placed Grindavik taking on KA Akureyri at their Grindavíkurvöllur ground, and a chance for the hosts to lift themselves up into third place in the Urvalsdeild.

Grindavik will no doubt be relieved to be heading home for this clash having played their last three matches away from home which have resulted in one win but two defeats with three points gained at Fjolnir in a 1-0 win, but losses incurred at IBV 3-0 and FH 2-1 respectively.

However, a home record of  2-1-2  5/6 includes wins against second placed Valur in a 2-1 win along with a 2-1 victory over Fylkir, so the hosts know they’re capable of getting a result here tonight despite losing to Breidablik last time out on home turf.

Eighth placed KA Akureyri make their way to Grindavik still in search of their first away win of the Icelandic top flight season, having lost four of their five matches so far on their travels. Results have been mixed in recent weeks for the visitors as they’ve picked up wins against Vikingur Reykjavik and Fjolnir, but have also lost to Valur and Stjarnan.

The two recent wins were both registered at their Akureyrarvöllur where they hold a reasonably solid looking record of  3-2-1  9/3 but an away record of  0-1-4  5/12 shows the troubles they’ve had on the road so far this season.

This poor road record includes four straight defeats on the trot with losses at Fylkir, FH, KR and Valur, and indeed, have now gone eight matches without a win on the road. Their last visit to Grindavik ended up in a 2-1 win for the hosts, and a similar scoreline could develop here this evening.
