Vikingur Olafsvik Falls 1-0 in Stoppage Time

Somewhat unsurprisingly, it can be hard to get a lot of detail from which to write a match summary of an Icelandic second-division soccer match from 2600 miles away.

First world problems, I guess.

Vikingur Ol had to travel 100 miles to Akranes for their “home” match against Selfoss, due to the poor condition of the pitch in Olafsvik.   The match was scoreless through 90 minutes, but looking at the match statistics, Vikingur appeared to have dominated: 54%-46% advantage in possession, an 11-1 advantage in shots, a 6-1 edge in corners.  They were unable to find the back of the net, though – and in the first minute of stoppage time, Selfoss forward Elton Livramento broke through to send Vikingur down to defeat.

Vikingur Olafsvik travels back to Akranes on Friday for their match against IA, who is level with Vikingur at three points after two rounds.
