Thór will welcome Grótta to for a matchday 7 fixture in Iceland 1. Deild. The last meeting on 23rd July 2021 ended in a Thór 4-2 win. Both sides have met eight times in the most recent seasons. Thór has won 4 matches, and Grótta triumphed in 3. Recent outings average 3.50 goals, while both teams score 63% of the time.
Thór’s latest fixture against HK ended in an away 3-1 loss. I expected more from Thór. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points. Thór set the tone early and scored in the 14 minute.
Grótta’s previous game in the competition versus Afturelding ended in an away 2-2 draw. The whole team didn’t turn up, so in the end the draw was a good result. Grótta was pretty good in both halves and scored in the 76th and 90+5 minute.
Since the start of the season, Thór is more dominant at home. They have one wins out of 3 games on home soil. Although Thór is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 33% home clean sheets.
Grótta has picked up 10 points from the previous five league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Grótta wins 0.50 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Grótta kept a clean sheet in just 0% of their visits.
The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Thór has won just 33% of home games. On average they score 0.67 goals and concede 1.00 per game. It is disappointing to see that Grótta is yet to win an away game. They have drawn 50% of all games on the road.
The visitors have a better record and I have to back them.My prediction is Grótta to win.
Both sides have plenty of quality in the attack which often results in high-scoring games. I don’t think this one on Thursday will be any different. On average, both teams score in 67% of Thór’s home and Grótta’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
