KF Vidir vs Vestri Football tips and predictions

Vestri have taken just one point from their last three Iceland. Preseason Cup matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Vestri are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions KF Vidir should prove no easy feat either – Vestri haven’t won against any Iceland. Preseason Cup leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

KF Vidir have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. KF Vidir dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the Iceland. Preseason Cup’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

KF Vidir are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about KF Vidir and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in KF Vidir’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Vestri are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Vestri took a point away from KF Vidir (1-1 draw).

Notably, KF Vidir’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. KF Vidir have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four Iceland. Preseason Cup away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Vestri, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Vestri getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Vestri are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), KF Vidir hold the best away record in the Iceland. Preseason Cup (W8 D2 L1). Vestri’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with KF Vidir’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the KF Vidirns could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 KF Vidir win at 15/2 with bet365.
