Valur visit Samsung völlurinn on Sunday for the Úrvalsdeild showdown with home side Stjarnan.
Scroll down to see all of the predictions, poll and statistics for Stjarnan v Valur - as well as up-to-date odds.
Stjarnan, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 1-2 Úrvalsdeild triumph against KR.
It’s been seldom in recent games that Stjarnan haven’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that Stjarnan have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 5 goals along the way.
Looking at the pre-match facts, Stjarnan:
- have not registered a win against Valur in their last 2 league games.
- are unbeaten in their previous 6 league matches at home.
- are without a win at home for the past 3 league games.
Valur head into the meeting following a 2-4 Úrvalsdeild win versus ÍA in their most recent match.
Demonstrating their predisposition for high-scoring encounters, goals have been celebrated 23 times in the previous 6 matches in which Valur have played, giving a mean average of 3.83 goals each fixture. Opposing teams have hit 7 of these goals. We will just have to find out if that trend will be continued on in this game.
Heading into this fixture, Valur are unbeaten in their previous 8 away league matches. They really have been good on their travels.
Team News: Stjarnan
Stjarnan manager Rúnar Sigmundsson will be grateful not to have any fitness worries to speak of before this match with a fully injury-free group available to choose from.
Team News: Valur
With a fully healthy group available for selection, Valur boss Ólafur Jóhannesson has zero fitness worries to report before this clash.
Our assessment is that Stjarnan have the ability to breach the defence of this Valur outfit, although just one goal may not quite be as many as they’ll concede.
We are therefore anticipating a tight encounter finishing with a 1-2 advantage for Valur by the conclusion of the game. Should be a good one.
