Reason For Fjolnir vs Grindavik Betting Tips
Grindavik slipped up last weekend, and that saw them toppled from top spot. They have to regroup for this trip to Fjolnir on Thursday night. Their home loss leaves them a point shy coming in to the latest round of fixtures. They should expect better in a visit to Fjolnir, who narrowly avoided the drop last season. They’re going in the same direction this time around. Will they end their poor form with a shock victory over Grindavik, or will the visitors get their season back on track?
Fjolnir are yet to win at home this season, so they’re going to struggle for a result. Meanwhile, only FH have more away points than Grindavik this season. Of course, their defeat to Breidablik will have set the visitors back quite a bit. That 2-0 loss could send them tumbling, unless they can quickly get back on track. With two wins and a draw from three games on the road, we think that Grindavik will be pushing for a victory here.
While Grindavik are favourites, they won’t have it all their own way on Thursday. They are going up against a side who have hit 1.25 goals per game at home this season. Fjolnir have also got 13 goals in their last six clashes with Grindavik, and we see the hosts getting on the scoresheet here. They come in on the back of a 6-1 hammering by Stjarnan, but that single goal did keep a Fjolnir run going.
The hosts have scored in 27 of their last 28 matches, while they have scored in 14 of their last 15 at home. That good run has got to put some fear in to Grindavik, who are without a clean sheet in their last five matches. They finished last season by conceding in their last seven away games, so Fjolnir’s scoring form looks set to continue. However, the hosts have big defensive issues, shipping 2.13 goals per game this season.
Fjolnir have seen both teams score in 88% of their home matches. It’s also landed in 12 of their last 14 at home, while Grindavik have scored in eight of their last nine games. With the hosts conceding regularly, the away side should have chances, and as a result we see a high scoring affair on Thursday. Both teams to score is our main tip in this game, while we’re going for a 1-1 draw, with the away side winning two away league games in the last 12 months.
