KTP V MARIEHAMN
KTP enter this fixture coming off the back of a 1-1 Veikkausliiga draw versus AC Oulu.
It has been all too rare in recent games where KTP have kept a clean sheet. In fact, KTP have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 games, letting in 11 goals during that time.
Going into this encounter, KTP have not won at home in their last 5 league matches. Their supporters are understandably frustrated.
In their previous game, IFK Mariehamn drew 0-0 in the Veikkausliiga match with Helsinki IFK.
In that game, IFK Mariehamn managed 49% possession and 9 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. At the other end, HIFK Fotboll got 5 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target.
The stats don’t lie, and IFK Mariehamn have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing their opponents hit 11 goals in all. In defence, Grönvitt just haven’t been too solid at all. It will be interesting to see whether or not that trend will be continued on in this game.
Prediction: Over 3.5 Goals
KR V KEFLAVIK
KR are hoping to win again following a 1-2 Úrvalsdeild triumph against KA.
KR-ingar have been finding it hard to keep clean sheets of late, but they’ve also managed to convert their own chances into goals. Over their last 6 matches, KR-ingar have been punished defensively in 5 of them while also getting on the scoresheet in 6 of those games.
Keflavík come into this clash after a 2-3 Úrvalsdeild win versus Stjarnan in their last match.
In their previous 6 clashes, Keflavík have helped themselves to a tally of 11 goals. Keflavík have also managed to score in every single one of those games. In that time, they have had 10 goals go into their own net. That sort of pattern isn’t assured to be continued here, though.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
LEIKNIR V IA
Leiknir will be hoping to return to winning ways here following the 4-0 Úrvalsdeild losing effort in their last game against Breiðablik.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent games where Leiknir haven’t conceded. The facts show that Leiknir have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 games, letting in 11 goals during that time. Nevertheless, we will just have to wait and see whether that pattern might continue on here in this game or not.
After a loss in their previous game against Víkingur Reykjavik in Úrvalsdeild competition, ÍA and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
Indicating their bias toward fruitful encounters, we’ve seen goals 20 times in the last 6 games in which ÍA have taken to the field, giving a mean average of 3.33 goals each fixture. Their opponents have hit 14 from this total.
Prediction: Over 3.5 Goals
