By now we’ve had a taste of every group in the Euro 2016 Of Crime Drama, so today it’s back to Group A – the Group Of Death, some have named it – where another fancied, if unseeded, team makes its first appearance of the competition. It’s time to say hello to Iceland’s Trapped, who will take on Norway’s Mammon.
As ever, let’s quickly recap yesterday’s fixture, which saw the seeded The Killing, from Denmark, take on unheralded 10 from Switzerland. As predicted it was a one-sided affair, with the Danish series showing exactly why so many pundits have picked it to win the tournament.
The Killing 96%
That means Group D looks like this:
The Killing (P1 W1 L0 POINTS 3 WM +92%)
10 (P1 W0 L1 POINTS 0)
The Lens (P0 W0 L0 POINTS 0)
Falcón (P0 W0 L0 POINTS 0)
No onto today’s game. Let’s get the form guide:
REPRESENTING ICELAND: TRAPPED
Form guide: This newcomer has really burst onto the scene this year with some eye-catching and breathtaking performances in qualifying. A strong central partnership between the hulking Andri Olafsson (surely a physical match for anyone) and Hinrika Kristjánsdóttir (driven and skilful) make this show one to watch. If there’s a weak spot in the team it’s Ásgeir Þórarinsson, who occasionally suffers from lapses in concentration. Still, Trapped’s players have been schooled in fierce, harsh conditions and Olafsson’s physical presence alone, allied to the guile and determination of Kristjánsdóttir, might make them one to watch.
REPRESENTING NORWAY: MAMMON
Form guide: An interesting selection, Mammon’s star striker – journalist Peter Verås – should cause problems with his tenacity, but don’t expect Mammon to get past the group stages.
