The Úrvalsdeild tie at Kópavogsvöllur on Monday will see home side Breiðablik do battle with opponents ÍA.
For all of our match predictions, pre-game poll and statistics for Breiðablik v ÍA, scroll down including the latest game odds.
Breiðablik will be hoping for a better result after the 2-1 Conference League Qualifiers losing effort in their last game against Budućnost.
The only scorer from Breiðablik was Ísak Þorvaldsson (51'). Branislav Janković (38') and Vladan Adžić (86') scored for Budućnost.
Óskar Hrafn Þorvaldsson's Breiðablik have found the net a sum total of 11 times over their prior 6 outings. At the other end, the tally of goals that have been scored against them in those fixtures is 5.
Since tasting defeat last time out to Fram in Úrvalsdeild action, ÍA will be hoping to turn things around here.
The stats don’t lie, and ÍA have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 15 goals overall. In defence, ÍA seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly. That kind of trend won’t necessarily be carried forward here, however.
Head to head
Looking over their most recent head to head meetings dating back to 19/05/2019 shows us that Breiðablik have won 5 of these and ÍA 1, with the tally of drawn results standing at 0.
There were also goals galore in those games, with 26 in total which averages out at 4.33 goals per meeting.
The last league contest between these clubs was Úrvalsdeild match day 4 on 07/05/2022 which finished with the scoreline of ÍA 1-5 Breiðablik.
Team News: Breiðablik
The Breiðablik boss Óskar Hrafn Þorvaldsson does not have any fitness concerns at all ahead of this game owing to a completely injury-free group to choose from.
Team News: ÍA
Out of a mainly available group, there’s just a single fitness problem for the ÍA manager Joey Guðjónsson to be concerned about. 12 (ÍA Akranes) misses out for this game.
Our thinking is that Breiðablik have it within them to stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
At the other end, ÍA might well find it a difficult task to break down their defence but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be hitting back at some stage, too.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a pretty comfortable 3-1 victory for Breiðablik at the end of the match.
