Vikingur Preview – Can Vikingur bounce back at home?

After finishing last season’s Pepsideild in dismal fashion without a win from their final 11 matches of the campaign, Vikingur have made a much better fist of things this time around as the hosts sit in 3rd place in the Icelandic top flight having lost just once so far this season.

That solitary loss came last time out in a 2-1 defeat away from home at Leiknir Reykjavik but they return to home surroundings on Monday night having previously been unbeaten in their opening nine games of this new term.

Results at home have been fairly solid as Vikingur are unbeaten in their last six matches and includes wins against Keflavik, Breidablik and FH along with keeping three clean sheets as well.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Akranes Preview – Can Akranes stay in touch?

It’s still early days of course in the Icelandic top flight season but already it appears as though Akranes will have their work cut out if they’re to maintain their Pepsideild status as the visitors sit bottom of the division with just six points to their name to date.

Four defeats out of their last five matches overall underlines the problems that Akranes have had in terms of keeping up with their peers and following losses against Breidablik, KR, KA and Fylkir, Akranes already find themselves five points adrift of third from bottom outfit, Leiknir Reykjavik.

With just two wins from their last 11 away matches, Akranes look to be up against it here especially as they’ve lost eight of these 11 games, failed to keep a clean sheet and have conceded 35 goals into the bargain.
