Fó predicts - 10th place: Breidablik

Icelandic footy website Fó which is one Icelands most popular wesbites has begun a rundown and preview of the upcoming Icelandic season. One of their football expert Ólafur Kristjánsson has done a preview and I've taken the liberty to translate it here on this site.

Fó predicts that Kópavogur club Breidablik will struggle and finish in tenth and last place in the league.

Breidablik is a side which earned promotion to the Premiership last season. They are a powerful side and have players
who are fast and can cause damage to the opposition by using their pace. They play a direct type of football and have an
advantage in their coach who has been at the club for few years.

The strengths: Breidablik did well last season in the Icelandic first division and have assembled a side that is very compact.
They have lost Faroe Islands international Hans Frodi Hansen back to the Faroe Islands who had an outstanding last season at
the club but the manager will solve that. Breidablik have two extremely promising central defenders in Gudmann Thorisson and
Kári Ársælsson. Those two could have a great season but their inexperience could prove costly also.

The weaknesses: Breidablik is fairly young side and they dont have many players with Premiership experience.

Players to watch:
Marel Baldvinsson who has returned to Breidablik from Belgian side Lokeren is a good player but he's quite injury prone and could not
last the whole season. However if he's stays clears of injuries he is without a doubt one of the best strikers in the league. Breidablik
could be in big trouble upfront if he gets injured. Stiig Haaland is a good left back who will strengthen the side. All in all it's a fairly even
side with hard working players.

Key player:
Breidablik's key player is the whole team according to Fó Its difficult to pick and chose amongst the Breidablik players but if Marel Baldvinsson remains injury free he'll be their key player for sure.

Propable starting eleven:
Haflidason; Haaland, Thorisson, Ársælsson,A Gunnarsson; Podzemsky, Sigurgeirsson, Sigurdsson, R Gunnarsson, Thorsteinsson;
