Team News: Valur
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just a single fitness concern for the Valur boss Heimir Guðjónsson to contend with thanks to an almost full-strength group of players. 4 (Valur) is out of contention.
Team News: KA
From a largely available group of players, there is just the one fitness problem for the KA gaffer Arnar Grétarsson to contend with. 3 (KA Akureyri) won’t be in action.
We’re of the opinion that Valur will most probably have the majority of the possession and should be able to turn a few of their chances into goals.
At the same time, KA might well find it a difficult task to get a goal of their own but we can see them converting at least once here.
We’re predicting a decent 3-1 margin for Valur at the end of the match.
