MUCH better last night with both main bets landing in the first half – the 7-2 score draw never trapped but I can live with that!
I posted a game last week I was sweet as hell on but alas it disappeared into the Nordic Triangle never to be seen again … or so I thought – it’s back on the menu again tonight at a rescheduled time of 0pm.
There's always the chance of goals when it comes to the Scandinavian youth leagues. Icelandic youth action here and although it’s not going to be everyone’s cup of tea it has been one of the most consistent leagues for goals over recent years and some of the scorelines are simply eye-watering.
LEIKNIR/KB U19 VS. GRINDAVÍK/GG U19 (8pm)
These two played their most recent H2H just 10 weeks ago with the small matter of 11 match goals in an 8-3 home victory for Grindavik – not too shabby as recent goals-form goes and although it’s unlikely we’ll see an exact repeat there’s every chance of a healthy final score!
Both sides have had a fairly active start to their respective youth campaigns and these are reflected in the most recent match goal totals over the last 4 months:
Like I said these are some of the most consistently high-scoring games in Europe and the fact only three of the hosts' last 17 matches finished with fewer than 5 goals puts that into perspective.
The significant difference to other high-scoring leagues (and the reason I like it so much) is that it’s rarely a quality gulf resulting in vast thumpings of 10-0, etc as seen in the Finnish Kolkolmen and similar leagues.
Instead what you find in the Icelandic youth is scorelines of 5-4, 7-3, etc where BOTH teams are working for you to help amass that goals tally.

The Night Owl sees me in Brasil at 11.15pm where I’m tracking down a rogue fourfold.
