MONDAYS aren't our favourite day of the week but there's one game that looks to have some decent value we can take advantage of today.
After Saturday's success with Videoton, today we're looking to Icelandic football to bring the bacon home and keep up the 100% record since we arrived here on MrFixitsTips.
HK Kopavogur face up to Vidir in what is billed as a League Cup match. The league season hasn't begun in Iceland yet and they play numerous pre-season tournaments which all seem to get called the League Cup. This doesn't make life easy when it comes to trying to study these matches and track down any previous action but this is both teams' first game in the group section of whatever this tourney is.
HK are a third-tier side who narrowly failed to gain promotion last season on goal difference. They've already taken part in one pre-season tourney where they took a few heavy beatings including a 7-1 defeat to Premier League champions FH Hafnarfjordur and a 3-2 defeat to top tier side IA Akranes. HK have managed to score in all six of the games they've played so far though and even managed a 6-3 victory over Tindastoll and a 2-1 win against Njardvik, both tier two sides.
Where this one gets interesting is when we look at the opposition. Vidir are a fourth tier side in Iceland. Last season the fourth tier teams were split into four groups with Vidir being placed in the third of these groups and ended the season by winning it, undoubtedly a proud moment for them, but when you look at the fact the bottom team conceded 175 goals in 15 games you see the level of where we are at. Vidir appear to have been moved into this level of League Cup action on the basis of winning their section and are the only fourth tier team in the group.
HK scored three, four and five in the group stages of this competition last season against opposition from their own league while Vidir conceded six to a team from their own tier. If the HK that put six past Tindastoll recently turn up here this could go big. Two fourth tier sides have already faced up to third tier opposition in this tournament with them both losing, 3-2 and 5-2.
Don't go mad stakes on this one, as the Vidir of this season are a bit of an unknown but this game should undoubtedly see goals, with HK the likely team to be getting them. This match is also being played at an indoor stadium so no worries about the state of the pitch here.
