Football Bet of the Day: Vikings bring goals to Hafnarfjordur
Once Russia v Saudi Arabia is out of the way, cool yourselves down with a trip to Iceland, says Tobias Gourlay
"Last season, this fixture finished 2-2, with FH winning the reverse 4-2"
Hafnarfjordur v Vikingur Reykjavik
Colorado Rapids lived up to their name in last night's MLS. The hosts scored twice within 15 minutes of kick-off at Dick's Sporting Goods Park. Chicago Fire came right back at them and it was 2-2 after 24 minutes. With our bet safely paid out, that's how it finished.
We're in Iceland today for a post-World Cup opening game warm-down. Among the various Urvalsdeild matches taking place tonight, it's the mid-table clash between Hafnarfjordur and Vikingur Reykjavik that stands out.
Under new manager Olafur Kristjansson, hosts FH are just W1-D2-L1 at Kaplakriki this season, having seen both teams score in all four matches. Last season, this fixture finished 2-2, with FH winning the reverse 4-2. We thought the price on both teams to score again today would be shorter than it is.
Logi Olafsson's Vikingur only confirm our view. The Vikings have scored and conceded in 11/12 away games since the start of last season. We're hopeful they'll be free and easy with the goals again this evening.
