Grindavik came in to this round of fixtures in second place, sitting just a couple of goals shy of the leaders after a strong start to the campaign. They’re one of the few sides in the top flight who have yet to lift a league title, as are visitors Fylkir. However, the hosts have a great chance to move top of the league this week, if they can rack up a big win on Monday night. Can they continue their good form with another three points in this clash, or will the away side add to their points tally, and move level with Grindavik?
The visitors have picked up eight points from their first six since climbing back in to the top flight, adding to that with a point at FH last weekend. They are directly behind Grindavik in the table, but can the visitors take another point? The away side have played four of their opening matches on the road, and they’ve taken just two points. Their home form has been impressive, but they’re yet to find their groove on the road.
The hosts have seen a mixed back of home results so far, and they’re going to be out to boost their fortunes with three points on Monday night. The hosts are also looking to bounce back from a midweek setback, after they exited the cup. However, progress in the league will be much more important to them this season, as they look to build on last season’s fifth placed finish.
The hosts made it to fifth by winning five of their seven meetings with sides who finished below them, and they’ll be out to claim another victory this week as they look to push on in the Urvalsdeild. They beat champions Valur 2-1 in their last home game, while Grindavik were also unbeaten against the four sides who finished above them last term. They’re perfectly set for a strong result in this meeting with Fylvir.
Meanwhile, the away side have really struggled in recent times on the road. They’re winless in six trips, a run which includes a visit to this ground back in March, as Grindavik claimed a 3-0 win in the League Cup. There’s still a gap between the two, and the visitors haven’t been able to pick up their away form since. We’re backing a home win in Monday’s encounter, with Grindavik’s form making them the clear choice in our eyes. We’re also tipping a 2-0 home win as our correct score pick in this clash.

This is the first league meeting between these two sides since 2012, although Fylkir lost this trip in the League Cup earlier this year.
Grindavik could look to make changes following their midweek cup exit.
After a solid start to the season, there’s little need to Fylkir to make drastic changes this weekend.
