Valur Reykjavík confirmed their third successive women's title in Iceland with an 8-0 win against Stjarnan on Saturday as they gear up for UEFA Women's Cup second qualifying round action in October.
With 51 points from 18 games, Valur can no longer be caught by second-placed KR Reykjavík – the only side to beat them in the league this season – and can make it a domestic double if they overcome KR in the cup final on 20 September. After that, the eight-time Icelandic champions will focus on UEFA Women's Cup second qualifying round Group B between 9 and 14 October, when they take on Umeå IK, ASD CF Bardolina Verona and Alma KTZH for a place in the quarter-finals.
Margrét Lára Vidarsdóttir has registered 32 goals in 17 league matches this season – and has been Iceland's top championship scorer in every campaign since 2004, peaking with 38 strikes in 2007. However, having previously played in Germany for FCR 2001 Duisburg, she is now planning another move abroad, saying: "I think my time in Iceland is set to end and I intend to play abroad this autumn. There are exciting times ahead. My agent tells me big teams have been in contact, although I will not think about this until the end of the season."
