An away win last weekend put Valur back on course in the Urvalsdeild, and they’re pushing to retain their title. They were comfortable champions in 2017, finishing 12 points clear at the top. Will they put together a strong run of form and race clear at the top this time around? Their meeting with KA seems like the perfect chance for them to add another three points to the board, which would help them continue their push to regain top spot. Will Valur come away with another win on Saturday?
The visitors are having a mixed season, with eight points from seven games. They come in to this clash in eighth place in the table, after finishing seventh last season. Will they be kicking on this term as they look to move in to the top half, or are KA set for another season of mid-table obscurity? They’re certainly up against it in this trip to the 21-time champions of Iceland, as Valur look to be back to their best ahead of Saturday’s encounter.
Three straight wins have boosted the hosts’ hopes of silverware, and they’re pushing for another this weekend. Valur are unbeaten in 16 home league games, winning seven of their last nine here in the Urvalsdeild. It’s no surprise that the champions are being backed for another three points, and they’re heavy favourites to claim three points on Saturday.
KA make this trip with three defeats in four matches, and they’re heading to the toughest ground in the division. With no win in seven trips in the league, KA have been short of points on their travels for quite some time. We expect that run to continue, especially against a side who have won four of the last six encounters between the two sides. However, KA have managed to find the net in five of those meetings, so the champions might not have it all their own way.
The hosts’ recent home form has seen them slip up defensively a fair bit, with the last six Urvalsdeild matches at this ground seeing both teams score. KA’s strong record at this stadium could see that continue, while the visitors have scored four times in their four away trips this season. We can see more goals here, with Valur conceding in 71% of their league games this term. We’re backing a home win and both teams to score on Saturday, which seems like good value.
