HEADING to the Icelandic 1 Deild on the hunt for goals this evening.
NJARDVÍK VS. ÍA (8.15pm)
My money is on the away side to come away with the spoils here but as ever, I’d not risk anyone’s money on WDW at those prices and goals are the way to go.
The last two 2018 H2H’s saw a combined total of 9 goals with scorelines of 2-2 (at IA’s ground) and 3-2 to Njardvik at their place and given the recent form of both, we could be in for a few more.
IA could leap into top spot if they win this game in hand on Vikingur and HK don’t grab all 3 points but whichever way the cards fall today, I’d put IA right in the mix for promotion come the end of the campaign.
The visitors already have the best G/D in the division at +18 and won their last two games 1-3 and 5-0 against Haukar and Thor – Njardvik’s efforts against the very same sides finished 1-2 and 3-0 respectively which offers a pretty decent and very recent barometer of the potential quality difference.
Although I was tempted withs 23-20 for a 2nd half IA brace, I’ll keep the offer of the hosts chipping in to help and it’s always better to have both sides working for you.
- Over 3.5 goals
- (6-5, Coral)
