ONLY one thing to do when you’re in Manchester and fancy an afternoon following some world-class football – luckily there’s a big game kicking off at 3pm).
It may not be The Etihad but there are certain similarities between The Laugardalsvöllur Stadium and it’s rather more affluent Mancunian counterpart. Fram’s Reykjavik ground is no stranger to goals and 6-4-4-3-4-1-1-3-4-10-6 in consecutive home games offers up a pretty tasty average.
Both home and away games have seen rich pickings for any goal backers following Fram and without their 2-0 loss to table-toppers IA their last 10 league matches have finished with scorelines of 3-3, 2-2, 2-2, 1-3, 2-1, 3-1, 1-0, 1-2, 3-1, 2-2 – that’s a record that sees btts & overs get the green light in 80% of their most recent matches!
While Njardvik can’t quite match that figure their games have hardly been devoid of action – last season’s successful promotion bid from 2 Deild saw them racking up the goals and despite their struggle to assimilate they have netted in 9 of their last 13 matches … a spell that has averaged just over 3.1 goals per game.
There have been 3 H2Hs between the two sides with the most historic finishing 2-1 to Fram but is meaningless whereas the much more meaningful 2018 match-ups in April and June finished with respective scorelines of 2-1
I really like the look of both sides scoring here and doubt it will stay under 3 goals – two selections to consider.
