Fylkir is a newly promoted team, whose main priority is to keep their place in Besta-deild karla. They lost some key players from last season like Mathias Laursen (20/15 top scorer), and Asgeir Asgeirsson (15/0), while they didn’t open the new season in the proper way, having 5 defeats in 7 rounds, and the worst defense in the league. Also, four days ago, they were eliminated by KR Reykjavik in the 1/8 finals of the Cup by 3-4 home defeat. Stjarnan is always one of the top 5 teams in the league. They opened the season really slowly, but managed to make two wins in a row with the same result 4:0. In their mutual matches at Stjornuvollur, they have 8 wins in a row, while on 7 of them they scored two or more goals.
