The ice did indeed melt, thanks to five goals in Akranes last night. Breidablik won 3-2 at IA, which got us off to a flying start.

We make the short trip from Iceland to Denmark tonight, because the Danes are taking on Germany in a post-season friendly. The world champions have a busy summer ahead, with a World Cup qualifier against San Marino, and then a Confederations Cup campaign in Russia. Bundestrainer Jogi Loew has brought in some fresh faces, with seven players hoping to make their debuts. They include Hertha Berlin left-back Marvin Plattenhardt, thrilling Ajax winger Amin Younes and bustling Hoffenheim striker Sandro Wagner.

The match has been arranged to mark the 25th anniversary of Denmark's most famous victory. They overcame Germany in the final of the 1992 European Championships, securing one of the most remarkable trophy wins in football history (they were only invited to compete after Yugoslavia had been expelled). The current Denmark team is struggling - there is already a six-point gap to leaders Poland in their World Cup qualifying group, and defeats to the Poles and Montenegro have left Age Hareide's men with plenty to do.

The market expects goals here, but I'm not so sure. It'll be an unfamiliar German side at the Brondby stadium, and as such, it might take a while for Loew's new-look team to gel. Die Mannschaft haven't conceded a single goal in the last four friendlies, which has contributed to all four of those games featuring fewer than three goals.

The Danes have seen four of their last six outings feature fewer than three goals, and even though Leicester City keeper Kasper Schmeichel is out injured (his father Peter was in goal for Denmark in that 1992 final), I think the hosts can still keep things fairly tight.

With Under 2.5 Goals trading at 2.22, I'm going for a low-key, low-scoring encounter.
