Stjarnan have been in really good form lately, and have done a good job in both competitions. They will now look to keep their undefeated streak going when they will play host to Fjolnir on Sunday. Fjolnir have won just one of their last four and are kind of struggling right now.

Stjarnan (2-1-4) are coming off a really physical match on the road against Breidablik. They eventually scored the only goal of that match at the 57th minute from the penalty spot. Prior to that they destroyed a much weaker team in the round of 16 of the Icelandic Cup and moved to the quarter-finals. Stjarnan are now sitting at the 6th spot of the Pepsideild with 10 points, four points behind the top spot. They have also been quite strong at home (1-1-3), but have conceded multiple goals in three of those matches. Fjolnir (2-2-3) did not have the same luck in the round of 16 of the Cup. They were stuck at a 1-1 draw in the regular time against Thor Akureyri, and eventually fell in the penalty shootout. After that they recorded a tough loss at home against the visiting Valur by 2-0. Fjolnir are now sitting at the 8th spot of the league table with 9 points, just one behind their upcoming opponents. However, they have been really good on the road so far in the league (2-0-1), but there have been goals from both sides in each of their last seven in all competitions.

The two teams met in the League Cup earlier in the season, where Fjolnir destroyed Stjarnan by 2-5 at home. However, Stjarnan had won each of the previous four matches against this opponent. Both teams are prone to high-scoring matches, so I will go with the Over 3 Goals here.
