Tobias Gourlay's expecting a volcanic eruption of goals in the north tonight

"Oli Floventsson's hosts have delivered Over 2.5 Goals in 11/16 at Grindavikurvollur"

Back Over 2.5 Goals @ [2.02] in Grindavik v KA Akureyri

Grindavik v KA Akureyri
Thursday 19:00

We saw some goals yesterday. First, Incheon Utd and Gangwon played out a 3-3 draw to land our first bet of the day. Then the Union stood firm against Chicago, beating them - and us - 4-3 with a 94th-minute winner.

We move on. To Iceland, in fact, where today's single game pitches sixth-placed Grindavik at home to eighth-placed KA Akureyri in the 12-team Urvalsdeild. Both teams returned to the top flight last season, with both of their clashes producing 2-1 home wins. We're backing Over 2.5 Goals this evening too.

Oli Floventsson's hosts have delivered Over 2.5 Goals in 11/16 at Grindavikurvollur since bouncing back up to this level. Across all of those matches, they've scored in 14/16, and managed just a single clean sheet.

Srdjan Tufegdzic's visitors are even more porous. They've conceded at least twice in all five away games so far this term. Since their promotion, it's 11/16 road trips with Over 2.5 Goals, including 4/5 this season. They've scored themselves in 4/5 and we're backing them to help get this one over the line.
