Víkingur Reykjavik's recent form has shown a notable decline, with the team failing to secure a victory in their last two matches. They first played to a 2-2 draw before suffering a 3-1 loss to Breidablik in their most recent league outing. Prior to these matches, Víkingur enjoyed an impressive 10-game winning streak across all competitions.
Despite the recent setbacks, Víkingur Reykjavik still maintains their position at the top of the table, holding 60 points from 24 games. They have been prolific in front of goal, scoring 68 times, while conceding 25 goals. Their lead at the summit of the league stands at 11 points.
One player to keep an eye on is Birnir Ingson, who scored the only goal in their last match. Ingson has been a key contributor this season, netting 12 goals and providing 8 assists, totaling 20 goal contributions, the highest in the league. He is among the top goal scorers in the league, with only Stjarnan's Emil Atlason having scored more goals (15) this season. Ingson's performances will be crucial as he aims to climb the goalscorer chart and maintain his impressive form.
FH are aiming to secure a fourth-place finish in the league, as they are currently level on points with fourth-place Stjarnan (37 points) in the standings. While they may not be in contention for the title, finishing in fourth place would provide them with an opportunity to earn a spot in European competitions for the next season.
Their recent form has been inconsistent, as they suffered a 3-1 defeat to Stjarnan in their last match. However, prior to that loss, FH showed signs of good form with back-to-back 2-0 victories over Breidablik.
As they look to secure fourth place, FH will need to find more consistency in their performances and aim to finish the season strongly in order to achieve their goal of European qualification.
