Iceland Prediction – Can Iceland stake claim for top two finish?

It’s a three-way race for the top two positions in Group H with France, Turkey and tonight’s hosts, Iceland, all tied on 9 points apiece having all won 3 and lost 1 as we head into this weekend’s action, as Iceland look to grab all three points against second from bottom, Moldova.

Iceland started their campaign with a 2-0 win away at rock-bottom nation, Andorra, and although they suffered a heavy 4-0 loss away in France, Iceland bounced back in solid fashion by recording back-to-back home wins against Albania and Turkey, with 1-0 and 2-1 scorelines respectively.

Form and results at home have also been steady for the Icelandic team as they’re unbeaten from their last 8 matches on home soil in Euro qualifiers, and this sequence includes notable wins over Turkey, Netherlands, Czech Republic and Turkey again.

This impressive 8-match sequence also includes 5 clean sheets and no doubt the hosts will be keen to assert their authority early on in this clash against Moldova in order to control the game and pick up another vital 3 points.

Moldova Prediction – Can Moldova stay in the hunt?

Moldova occupy 5th place in this 6-nation Group H having gained 3 points from their first 4 matches of this Euro 2020 campaign which was thanks to a 1-0 home win over bottom outfit, Andorra, but the visitors have struggled against the stronger teams in the group.

Three defeats to France 4-1 at home, a 4-0 loss away at Turkey and a 2-0 loss away at 4th placed Albania have left Moldova desperate for another win to keep their slim and fading hopes of a top two finish alive, but it appears to be academic at this stage as they trail the top three nations by a 6-point margin.

The visitors have also failed to win any of their last 10 away matches in Euro qualifiers on the trot as well which further appears to hinder any outside chance they might have of getting a result in Iceland on Saturday evening, as well as failing to keep a clean sheet from these 10 matches too.

To complete Moldova’s recent misery on their travels, the visitors have failed to score in 6 of these 10 away matches, including drawing blanks in each of their last 4 away matches on the trot.


Key-Facts – Iceland v Moldova

  • Iceland are unbeaten in their last 8 Euro qualifiers at home
  • Iceland have kept 5 clean sheets within these 8 matches
  • Moldova have failed to win any of their last 10 away matches in Euro qualifiers


Betting Tips Verdict

This should be an easy win for Iceland and the hosts look set to take an early lead here.
