Two of the league’s bottom four meet on Saturday, with IBV hoping to pick up another victory. Reykjavik dropped in to the bottom two after a thumping 4-1 loss to KA last weekend, which left them on course to drop in to the second tier. Will this be another setback for the side from the capital, or can they return to form with a home victory? They are seeing their standards slip this term, and another weekend without a win would be a big setback for the hosts.
Vikingur have been made favourites for this clash, but the bookies seem to expect a close affair. There’s just two points between these sides, so Vikingur could leap out of danger with a victory on Saturday. However, with no win in four league games, getting a victory is going to be tough. On the other hand, IBV head in to this one having lost five of their last six matches, following their cup exit to Valur. Neither side have been that impressive, so just which way is this one going to go?
We can expect goals in their encounter in Reykjavic, with Vikingur coming in to this clash having seen both teams score in their last three matches. After their 4-1 thumping at KA last weekend, there’s clearly some big problems for the hosts this weekend. They’ve shipped an average of 1.43 goals per game this season, which doesn’t include the three goals they shipped to lower league opposition in the cup. They’ve got one clean sheet in their last six matches, and we can’t see that changing this weekend.
Recent encounters between the pair have seen plenty of goals, with three of the last four matches between these sides finishing with both teams scoring. They’ve also seen BTTS in three straight meetings in Reykjavik. IBV have hit nine goals in six visits here, failing to score on just one occasion. Given how Vikingur are defending at the minute, we expect them to add to that impressive streak.
IBV have scored 1.25 goals per game on the road, and we see them finding the net in this clash. They’ve seen both teams score in three of their four away trips this term, but they’ve conceded in all of those matches. We can see plenty of goals in this clash, and both teams to score seems like value in our eyes, given the defensive struggles of the pair and their recent encounters.
