AB secured a decent opening day point, drawing 0-0 with Vikingur, but will need to be on top form for this difficult away fixture against B36 Torshavn.
The hosts, B36, are coming off the back of an impressive 2019/2020 campaign, having finished in second spot and securing qualification for the Europa League Preliminary Round.
The pre-match statistics also make for difficult reading for followers of AB, suggesting that this could be a long afternoon at the Gundadalur Stadium.
B36 finished 42 points ahead and had a +64 goal difference over AB across last season.
B36 further cemented their credentials on the opening day of this season, defeating the current Faroe Premier League Champions KI 2-0.
The best we might reasonably hope for is a battling away point for adopted boys in Claret & Blue, AB.
Recent head to head comparison….(gulp)
This weekends fixtures will be played out following the announcement that spectators will be permitted at matches, although the guidance and decision has been received in mixed terms.
The Prime Minister of the Faroe Islands has just announced that fans can attend #football games from now on. There are safety protocols that will be more detailed later. The key to keeping 🇫🇴 #coronavirus and #COVIDー19 free is that everyone who enters 🇫🇴 goes to quarantine ⚽️
