FH Hafnarfjordur vs Vikingur
UEFA Champions League 2017/18 – Second qualifying round
Date: Wednesday, 12th July 2017
Kick off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
Vikingur accomplished their main objective of reaching the second qualifying round by two impressive attacking displays against Kosovan champions Trepca’89.
Anything they do in the second round will be a bonus, but going past Icelandic champions FH would be a true sensation.
Vikingur will be hoping to take advantage of the momentum since FH will come into the game after suffering an unexpected home loss to Vikingur Olafsvik on Friday.
Heimir Gudjonsson’s men currently hold the third position in Urvalsdeild table with four-point deficit to Valur who also have a game in hand at the top of the standings.
The visitors have a decent attacking lineup (which certainly exceed the conditions of Faroese football) featuring the likes of Adeshina Lawal (Nigerian international who notched nine goals so far in the season) and Solvi Vatnhamar who bagged two goals in thumping of Trepca’89 last Tuesday.
Samal Hentze’s men are the current joint-leaders after 14 rounds of the new Meistaradeildin season.
The team is enjoying their best days in history since this is their first ever appearance in the most elite football competition.

FH Hafnarfjordur vs Vikingur: Prediction
FH are certainly massive favourites both on the night and over two legs, but they have not been in their best attacking mood in the last couple of weeks.
The 1/6 odds offered by the bookmakers on the home win thus do not represent the value which can, though, be found in backing FH to score Under 2.5 goals in the match at the odds of 10/11.
FH Hafnarfjordur vs Vikingur: Bet Tips
