Víkingur Reykjavík – Malmo FF

Football – Champions League Qualifying Round. Let’s take a look in our free soccer bets for today.

Vikingur can be proud of their performance in the first leg, as they had many obstacles but still managed to score twice and only suffered a narrow 3:2 loss which leaves them some hopes for the upcoming fixture. They looked decent in the first halftime and competitive enough, however staying with a man less since the 39th minute had an impact on the rest of the clash. Even so, thanks to a second goal scored in the third minute of added time via Gudjonsson, their dream continues for the moment. They continued their positive run in the Besta-Deild Karla league, winning 3:2 at home against Akranes last Saturday evening. Defender McLagan (10/0) is out for the rest of the season, while talented forward Gudjohnsen remains absentee since the start of the season. Midfielder Mani Ingason (11/4) is suspended.

Malmo was a huge favorite and surely didn’t expect to get such a narrow victory, even less expecting to concede twice. They had wast number of chances and could have and should have scored a bit more goals, while the second one came a bit unexpected very late in the match, so they still keep a clear favorite role for the next leg. Convincing and authoritative performance was seen by them on Saturday afternoon when they easily won over Varberg 3:0 at home. It took them a while to score the first one, in the sixth minute of added time in the first halftime from a penalty kick taken by Berget, while Christiansen and Birmancevic were goalscorers in the second halftime. They are now close to the top of the table, having four points less than the leaders from Hacken. Midfielder Lewicki (5/0) and forward Kiese Thelin (7/4) should remain out.

Vikingur Reykjavik looked really combative and with fighting spirit in the first leg, and now in front of their own fans, this should be only even more obvious. Of course, Malmo remains a favorite and should progress overall, but it’s not really difficult to see the home team going down without a proper fight.
