Víkingur - Form Analysis:

The "Vikings" claimed the championship title last season, their second in three years and seventh overall. Additionally, they secured the cup, achieving a "golden double." The team clearly aims to maintain their leading position this season.

Their start has been solid, though not flawless. They surprisingly lost to the unstable Kópavogur and narrowly managed a 1-1 draw with Breiðablik at the end of May. They also allowed Valur to equalize for a 2-2 draw.

KR Reykjavík - Form Analysis:

"KR-ingar" remains one of the most decorated clubs in the country, with 27 championship titles. However, they haven't secured the gold since 2019. Last season, they finished in a modest sixth place, right in the middle of the table.

This season has been quite inconsistent for them. They started with a couple of victories over Fylkir and Stjarnan, but have only added one more win, away at Hafnarfjörður, amid a series of draws and defeats. They lost 1-2 at home to Akranes in the last round.
