Albania vs Iceland is a dead rubber from Group B2 of the UEFA Nations League, which has no relegation.

Israel have already won the section, earning themselves up to the top tier of the competition.

That leaves Iceland and Albania playing for nothing, other than the chance of at least ending the campaign with a victory.

Albania Preview – Albania Seek Home Success

The return for Albania in this Nations League campaign has been D1 L2 from three games.

In their one home match, they suffered a 2-1 loss against group winners Israel.

The positive for them is that they have scored in all three fixtures in the group.

That’s been a trend actually because every fixture in Group B2 has ended with both teams getting on the scoresheet.

So that could be a trend to consider for Albania vs Iceland betting tips on Tuesday.

In the match outright, the home win is at an odds-on quote of 19/20*

Our betting prediction:
1-1 Correct Score

Albania have hosted Iceland three times before and are ahead in the head-to-head from that.

It’s been two wins from those three for Albania.

The most recent one of those was a big 4-2 success during the Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Both teams have scored in all but one of the seven previous meetings between the two nations.

Albania are W2 D1 L3 overall in the head-to-head with Iceland.


Iceland Preview – Can Iceland Find Some Form?

A positive for Iceland in this Nations League group is that they have been a hard side to beat.

They have drawn all three of their fixtures played so far.

That included a 1-1 home draw at home against Tuesday’s opponents Albania.

Iceland have found some improved form as of late, with a W2 D3 record in their last five.

The two victories in that sequence were 1-0 wins during recent international friendly fixtures.

In the match outright, Iceland are big 3/1 underdogs to win this*

It’s hard to not argue that too as Iceland have taken one competitive match win since September last year.

Iceland really have struggled to find any kind of winning touch in competitive fixtures.

That’s despite them scoring five goals in their three matches in this particular group.

Their defence is just there for the tanking it would appear.

This is a fixture where it may just be worth a look at Both Teams To score for 13/10*

The trend is there from previous meetings and there’s no pressure on this game for either team.


Albania vs Iceland Betting Tips

The last time that Albania won a fixture was back in November of last year.

That success over Andorra is their only win in their last nine internationals now so it’s not inspiring form.

At the end of the day, it is tough to look past the draw at a quote of 23/10*


Key Facts – Albania vs Iceland Selected Stats

  • Neither team have managed to claim a win in the group
  • Iceland are W3 D1 L2 in the head-to-head with Albania
  • Albania have won two of their three previous home matches against Iceland (L1)


Neither team really brings winning form to the table from competitive fixtures so this may peter out into a stalemate.

With that in mind, the longer-priced football tips is the 1-1 correct score at 6/1*

Iceland do carry a little momentum from their recent friendly wins, but Albania can hold out.
