IT was hot stuff with the Chilean Cup pick yesterday but looking to cool things down with a trip to Iceland.
I’m taking a Valur side in fine fettle to give IBV a dose of IBS – the hosts face the table-toppers on the back of a mixed (but not disgraceful) start to the campaign in which they sit second bottom.
The two sides have faced off five times in an almost exact 12-month spell so H2H data is both recent and relevant – Valur have scored a brace in 100 per cent of those matches and hit a hat-rick in 60 per cent.
The wider picture reflects the visitors' preponderance of goals and although I usually back corners in Valur’s games the fact they have scored 2+ in 16 of their last 18 successive games is hard to ignore.
IBV v Valur (7pm)
- Valur to score 2+
- (8-11, bet365)
