Vestmannaeyjar – Stjarnan


Vestmannaeyjar hosts Stjarnan in a match from the 13th round of the Iceland’s Urvalsdeild. The match is going to be played on Sunday evening.

Times are not good for Vestmannaeyjar. They didn’t start the new season in the best way possible. Right now Vestmannaeyjar are 11th in the league standings, with only Akranes being behind them in the table.

From 12 games played so far, Vestmannaeyjar won three, drew in two and lost seven. They have conceded 25 goals, scoring 15. Right now Vestmannaeyjar are the team with the worst defence in the Uvalsdeild.

Stjarnan on the other hand are doing much better. They are currently second in the standings with 21 points won. They are on six points behind the current leader Valur, so they are still in a good position to attack the first place. But if they want to achieve this goal, they must be as consistent as possible.

In 12 games played so far, Stjarnan won 6, drew in 3 and lost 3. They have scored 27 goals, conceding 15. Right now Stjarnan are the team with the best attack in the league. No other team have scored more goals than them in the first 12 rounds.

It’s clear that Stjarnan are the heavy favourite to win this game, even away from home. They are clearly the better team from the two and one of the biggest favourites to win the league. Meanwhile Vestmannaeyjar’s goals in the league are totally different – to survive and avoid relegation. At the moment they are not in a good place, but they still have enough time to improve and find a way to change their performance for good. But they have won just one point in their last five matches, which speaks enough of their current levels. Can they trouble Stjarnan?
