Reason For FH Hafnarfjordur vs Vikingur Reykjavik Betting Tips
Can FH extend a seven game unbeaten run when they host Vikingur Reykjavik on Thursday night? The visitors come here in trouble, as they are sat worryingly close to the danger zone. Meanwhile, the hosts are out to at least match their top three finish from last season, but first they need to start winning more games. They’ve had a lack of cutting edge of late, and that concern could worry them. Will that problem bite them yet again on Thursday night?
The hosts have been avoiding defeats, but they’ve drawn four of their last five games, including all of their last four in the league. That suggests another draw here, a point which Vikingur could really use. They’re only a point clear of the bottom two, and they are stuck in eighth place – the same position they finished in last term. Based on current form, it’s hard to see how they can do better this time around. Their fortunes are unlikely to improve in the short-term, with a difficult trip to face this week.
Vikingur lost 4-1 in their last away trip, which followed up a 4-3 victory in the cup. Can they make another big impression on the road this week? They head in to this clash aiming to exploit FH’s issues in defence, which has seen them concede 11 goals. They’ve still got a positive goal difference after some good results, so we should expect an exciting game on Thursday. The issue for the hosts is that they’ve shipped 64% of their goals at home so far, so could they face more problems at the back here?
Their defensive issues aren’t quite as bad as Vikingur, who have let in 2.33 goals per game on their travels so far. They’ve managed one clean sheet in 22 games on the road, so we can’t see them defending well in this game. These two shared 10 goals in their two meetings last season, while the last two matches between them here have finished 2-2. Will we get similar excitement from this encounter?
FH have seen quite a few high scoring games, so we expect goals on Thursday. The hosts have seen both teams score in six matches this season, while all four of their home games have seen each side find the net. We see a similar outcome in this game, with Vikingur seeing BTTS is four straight matches ahead of this trip. We’re backing more goals, alongside yet another draw for the hosts.

There have been three draws in the last five meetings between these two sides at this ground.
