Full predictions, stats & game poll for the KA v KR match are shown here - as well as up-to-date odds.
KA will be looking for a repeat result of the 1-3 Úrvalsdeild success against Keflavík.
KA have been conceding pretty frequently recently, although they’ve also managed to hit the back of the net themselves. Looking at their last 6 games, KA have conceded in 5 of them while also scoring in 6 of those matches.
Previously, KR drew 3-3 in the Úrvalsdeild tie with Valur.
The only name on the scoresheet from KR was Elmar Bjarnason (3'). Patrick Pedersen (61') scored for Valur.
Illustrating their appetite for fruitful matches, goals have been seen as many as 21 times in the previous 6 matches in which KR have played, giving a mean average of 3.5 goals for each clash. Opposing teams have hit 15 of these goals. That pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward into this match, however.

Team News: KA
There is just the lone fitness concern for the KA gaffer Arnar Grétarsson to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed set of players. 3 (KA Akureyri) is out of contention.
Team News: KR
Thanks to a largely full-strength squad, there is just the one fitness worry for the KR manager Rúnar Kristinsson to be concerned about. 7 (KR Reykjavík) won’t be playing here.
It’s pretty clear that KR will surely find it tough to get a goal against a KA team who will more than likely win well here.
We’re tipping a convincing 3-0 win for KA when the referee blows the final whistle.
