David, Axel & Helgi: The Playoff Push is Starting!

As an experiment, we at Karfan.is are putting out english spoken podcasts regularly about the Domino’s men’s and women’s leagues. Ideas and improvements to this show are welcomed and we ask that you send them to <karfan@karfan.is>.

In our eighth podcast about the Men’s Premier League 2018-2019, sponsored by Domino’s Pizza, David, Axel and Helgi discuss the long break that’s ending and what’s in store, their previous predictions at the beginning of the podcast and the farewell game of Jón Arnór Stefánsson and Hlynur Bæringsson with the Icelandic national team.

The fight at the Geysir Cup Semifinals is a topic of discussion as well as Tindastóll’s recent woes. The playoff push is about to begin and the last few rounds before the playoffs will be very exciting. Which team has used the break most efficiently?

Finally, we predict the final four rounds (Rounds 19-22) and we also speculate about possible surprise results and surprising games. Enjoy.

Hosts: Helgi Hrafn Ólafsson, David Patchell and Axel Örn Sæmundsson
