A FEW games taking the eye today in what is an interesting card of football including Icelandic Cup action, Moldovan Divizia A and Swedish U21s.

The Icelandic Cup is our first port of call with a game that has one of the most bizarre twists to it we've seen in a while.

ICELAND CUP
Trottur Vogum v Homer, 8pm, Bet365 in-play & possibly Sportingbet with full markets

Trottur Vogum are a 5th tier side in the new structure to Icelandic football having played their football in what was the bottom tier last season and finishing up mid-table. They faced up to the winners of their league, Vidir, in the last round of the cup and went on to win 3-2- something of a shock considering Vidir had run away with the league last season. Trottur had a decent tournament in the League Cup that is played pre-season over in Iceland by winning three of their matches and drawing two. They managed to score 16 goals in 5 matches and all this was achieved without them having played any of their matches on their home ground due to work being done.

Their opposition for tonight's match Homer are the interesting ones here. Homer play in the Gulfdeild in Iceland, which unbelievably is a 7-a-side league and they very rarely, usually only during this cup, play 11-a-side games! They managed to beat Stokkseyri 4-2 in the last round, having been 4-0 up at half-time, but Stokkseyri are a very poor side. Trottur beat them 2-0 in their final match of the league cup but we wouldn't read too much into this one as Trottur had already failed to qualify and made seven substitutions during the match as the manager gave game time to his young squad.

Tonight's match is Trottur's first back at their home ground and they are taking this as serious as it gets due to the fact the next round sees the big boys of Iceland entering the tournament. Trottur are currently 1/3 to win this game, with the goal line being set at Over 4.5 goals which we expect to stroll home in a fixture betwen two sides from the lower levels.

RECOMMENDED BETS
Over 1.5 & 2.5HT Goals
Trottur 3.5 & 4.5 Team Goals

SWEDISH U21 LEAGUE
Atvidabergs v AIK, 4pm, Bet365 in-play

AIK are rotten. They've been destroyed the last couple of weeks shipping six to Elfsborg in a 6-2 defeat last week and eight the week previous when going down 8-0 to Syrianska. They have conceded 28 goals in 7 matches so far in the league and appear to be getting worse instead of better.

Atvidabergs sit second top of the league having won four and lost three matches so far. Their defeats have come to the better sides in this division and have all been away from home. Their home victories included a 3-0 win over Syrianska and they won away from home last week when beating Gefle 3-2.

AIK always seem capable of bagging an away goal but struggle not to ship them. This game should see goals with Atvidabergs bagging the majority of them.

RECOMMENDED BETS
Over 2.5HT Goals
Over 4.5 & 5.5FT Goals
Atvidabergs 3.5 Team Goals

Another couple of in-play games worth a watching are the Moldovan Divisia A matches at 3pm. League leaders Veris take on Maiak Chirsova, which is a top v bottom clash. Veris won the reverse fixture 7-0 earlier in the season so should be destroying this lot again as the season nears a close, though the markets have been smashed to bits on this this morning. In the same league Sherif-Tiraspol II travel to take on 2nd bottom side RS Lilcora. This game had a 10-0 victory for Sherif in the reverse fixture so is worth keeping an eye on it once it gets going to see if it's is one way traffic and if any value is to be had.

    In play betting has been removed from Bet 365, swines, I was going for a 3rd 2 more 1st half goals at 8/11!

    Decent return fo just 30 mins of action :)

    • Mr Fixit 9 years ago

      Greg, that’s life. They’re not stupid unforunately. Right, I’m off to the happy house!

  6. Greg Browning 9 years ago

    Paul, I’m surprised they even offered an inplay market on this match! They must have pressed the panic button when the 6th goal went in , haha!

  7. Striker 9 years ago

    Cheers Paul, was speed reading the article and completely missed that!

  8. Striker 9 years ago

    Atvidabergs U21 over 2.5 HT goals looking good :)

  9. Greg Browning 9 years ago

    over 1.5 1st half goals 4/6 – win :)

  10. Striker 9 years ago

    …And it’s in, just as I typed my last comment, haha

  11. Greg Browning 9 years ago

    Nice one PB

    I played it safe in this game and opted for over 1.5 1st half goals 4/6 and over 3.5 match goals 1/2

    Been a good day

  12. Patrick 9 years ago

    Veris are winning 16-0 with 4 minutes left!

    • Patrick 9 years ago

      Make than 17-0!

  13. Greg Browning 9 years ago

    Cheers Patrick, was curious to find out the final score! ( could be more)

    PB had a look earlier at AIK’s away record, tell you what, they love a goal! They have scored in their last 14 away games ( 9 of which were 2 goals or more) could be worth boing for future away games!

  14. Horsing around 9 years ago

    Sherif-Tiraspol II = TWATS!

  15. Patrick 9 years ago

    It ended 17-0 Greg according to the skyin.cn website I use to find obscure league scores when Bet365 take them off.

  16. Patrick 9 years ago

    Sheriff Tiraspol suck but BP wins again, all bets for the Swedish match are in!

  17. Bounty Punter 9 years ago

    17-0 Veris.. unbelievable Jeff and what’s even more unbelievable is that Sheriff couldn’t even bag one!

    Atvidabergs did the business in Sweden and we’ll be looking a bit more at the Swedish U21s & U19s as the season unfolds.

    Another game that may be worth a look is due in-play on Bet365.

    FC Hürth take on SC Brühl in the German Mittlerheinga at 7pm. Brühl won the away fixture 5-0 and love a home goal against a side who ship them for fun away from home. Check out the stats on futbol24 and you’ll see what I mean. Will be having a go at half-time goals and SC Brühl team goals in this one to bide the time before the Iceland Cup action.

  18. Greg Browning 9 years ago

    Icelandic cup game 2-0 after 25 mins :)

    Over 1.5 1st half goals up

    German game 1-1 ad half time

    Over 1.5 1st half goals up

    Keep them coming :)

  19. Patrick 9 years ago

    Throttur 3-0 up after 30 minutes… ends 3-0! Not in the least bit surprised as things were going too well today. If they got 4, it would have been a super day, if they got 5, it would be the best day I’ve had in a long time. Got all excited but yeah, there you go. Still a stellar day.

  20. Bounty Punter 9 years ago

    Trottur 3 Homer 0 FT

    Half time bets in and looked comfortable with Trottur totally dominating. 24 shots and total dominance yet couldn’t bag anything second half, poor stuff this

  21. Paul 9 years ago

    BP, anything you like the look of today? (Wednesday).
    Cheers.

    • Mr Fixit 9 years ago

      Paul, probably his bed!
