KR hosts HK in a match that definitely promises corners and goals. My main prediction of the day for this encounter will be the corners but I believe goals will flow as well.
KR Reykjavik tends to be a solid home team producing a lot of chances and creating a lot of corners. They usually play strong on the wings and if the weather is a little bit windy it might get won at halftime. In Iceland, players play open football mostly on the wings, and in Reykjavik is usually windy which is the best factor that helps us.
Sonderjyske did their part last time out on the road against Horsens when they had some difficulties but still won the match with a 1:2 result.

They are currently at the 7th spot in the Relegation Group, leaving their closest Aalborg with one point less.
Defensive midfielder Vinderslev (17/0) is positive and out for the home side. He should be their only worry.
Aalborg, also, made a decent appearance in the last match at home against Vejle when they too a 2:1 victory after a complete reversal.
They conceded just before halftime, but with a certain dose of luck, leveled up the score in the 62nd when the guests scored an own goal.
Mechelen faced some problems during their last on the road against Ostende, but they still managed to pull out a 2:2 draw after a complete reversal.

Ried couldn’t do much more last Saturday on the road against Altach when they come with a pretty convincing 3:0 loss, showing a great deal of passivity in their overall appearance.
They conceded early in the 12th minute, while their downfall continued in the 40th when they were left with a player less on the field.
It wasn’t much of a problem for the home side two score two more in the continuation, as the visitors were simply too uncreative in this one to be more challenging.
Ried is currently at 10th spot in the relegation group, safe and without any further competitive motive.
Defensive midfielder Lackner (22/0) is suspended for this one, while injured are midfielders Gragger (8/0) and Canadi (14/0).
Genk managed to reduce the deficit which they had compared to the leading Club Brugge, and now have revived their chances at least a bit.
In their last clash on the road against Anderlecht, they made a good appearance and took a 1:2 victory, despite being underestimated by the bookie’s side. The guests took the lead first in the 16th minute over Onuachu but failed to keep for a long time, as they conceded an equalizer in the 31st.
However, they remained calm in the continuation and crowned their better performance with another one scored over Dessers in the last five minutes of the encounter.
Central defender Wouters (8/0) should be only unavailable player for the home side.
Antwerp isn’t coping in the best way since the beginning of the Championship campaign, as they failed to record a positive result in four matches played, and are currently sitting at the bottom among four.
Copenhagen is coming to this clash with positive thoughts, as they did a good job in the last round at home against Brondby when they recorded a 2:1 victory.
They took the lead in the 27th after an own goal scored by the visitors, but let their guard for a bit and conceded an equalize only twelve minutes later.
However, their impression was far more aggressive, and they managed to be effective one more time from the penalty in the 55th while having a player more on the pitch since the 68th, made their job much easier in this encounter.
Copenhagen is at 3rd spot in the rankings, having five points less compared to the leaders from Midtjylland.
Left-back Oviedo (7/0) and central defender Bjelland (3/0) are both out injured for the hosts.
The Red Devils are coming to this clash after a very interesting one last time out at home against Liverpool, when, unfortunately for them, they suffered a 2:4 loss.
They opened the match in a better way, taking the lead over Fernandes in the 10th, but overly looking, had some difficulties in the back, as they conceded three times in the next forty minutes.
Even though they managed to respond over Rashford in the 68th, Liverpool appeared better in the offense, and with another one scored just before the fulltime, deservedly took all three in this encounter.
Manchester is at 2nd spot in the general rankings, having their Champions League ticket mathematically secured.
Bournemouth ended the regular part of the season in the 6th spot and is approaching this first leg of the playout phase shaken a bit, as they were in three matches losing streak prior to this one.
In their last match at home against underdogs from Stoke, they appeared quite passive and suffered a 0:2 loss, not using the huge ball possession advantage which they had during the whole encounter.
As mentioned, they conceded two in total, over Forrester in the 36th and Smith in the 52nd, but this match had no competitive signature, so their poor appearance was understandable to a certain level.
Monaco did just enough in their last Ligue 1 clash on the road against Reims when they took an important 0:1 victory.
Overly looking, they kept their guard up during the whole clash, not taking any unnecessary risks, but never the less appeared slightly sharper at the finishing and scored the only one in this clash over Matazo back in the 20th minute.
Monaco is currently at 3rd spot in the general standings, having only two points less than direct ticket Champions League-placed PSG.
The home team will miss suspended forward Geubbels (14/1), plus defender Matsima (9/0) and midfielder Matazo (9/1). Offensive Diop (32/7) is doubtful for the moment, with forward Jovetic (29/6) also being unlikely to play.
Currently being at 10th spot in the rankings and with no chance to for something more significant, Goztepe has the luxury to approach this clash completely worry-free.
They had a very interesting and dynamic match in the last round against relegated Genclerbirligi when they suffered a 5:3 loss, playing as a visiting side.
They were competitive enough after fifty minutes of play when both sides managed to score twice, but allowed the hosts to completely overrun them, conceding three more times before the match ended, clearly showing an absence of a competitive motive.
Left-back Emir (32/1) is out injured, as well as goalkeeper Megyeri (2/0), central-backs Mihojevic (21/2), Alici (5/0), and offensive Diabate (18/3).
