TONIGHT sees a return to the Icelandic 4 Deild and I’m staying in Group A with a team that nailed it for me in their opening fixture.
Ymir ran out emphatic 6-0 victors against KB in week 1 and have looked strong in the pre-league cups with some cracking victories.
Their last 16 competitive games have seen 6-5-4-21-7-8-3-4-5-2-6-5-15-19-4 and 8 match goals … I’ll not bother working out an average as the 19, 15 and 21 games skew the figures but nevertheless not too shabby.
Conversely, Stal-Ulfur’s fortunes are less pretty and more shitty with their 3-0 opening-day loss to Berserkir making it 6 games without a win and 3 losses on the bounce while conceding 3-2-4-2-4 goals across the last 5 games.
These two last met just over 12 months ago – the result being 7-0 to Ymir – and I’m taking the visitors to wear down the hosts and inflict more damage in the latter parts of the game as happens so often in the Icelandic lower leagues.
Stal-Ulfur v Ymir (8pm)
- Ymir 2nd half most goals
- (10-11, b
Sudet v Savu & Kiisto v SIF (both 5pm)
Both host teams top their regional tables after 5 and 4 games respectively and have done so with ease having won 100% of their openers.
Each play a side at the other end of the table who have lost either all or the majority of games whilst scoring but conceding more.
Both goal lines look realistic so I’m doubling up for a low stake goals bet.
- Sudet v Savu gl 3.5
- Kiisto v SIF gl 4.0
- Double pays 2.24-1
