KA form and stats

The visitors, who have the fewest conceded goals (3) in Pepsideild, are W3-D1-L0 on the road this term. That's in the Pepsideild. KA have won three away matches in a row now and will not be intimidated by being the visitors in this fixture.

KA play their second away game in a row, but can be confident going into this one after the 1-0 victory visiting Stjarnan (placed 11th). E. Aðal­steins­son came off the bench to score the winning goal in the match against Stjarnan last time out, making the manager A. Gretarsson feel like a tactical genius.

A loss against Vikingur Reykjavik was the result prior to that, in a home game.

The visitors are returning home after this fixture, hosting Valur in just four days.

KA have scored more than twice on average per away game (in the league), an impressive attacking display. They have 8 goals from 4 away matches. The KA defense is a tough nut to crack, having conceded less than half a goal per away game on average (2 goals in 4 games).

Head 2 Head

Head-2-head stats last ten meetings: four - five - one (ÍA wins - draws - KA wins). As for goals, six matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), four had two or less.
