France News and Form

France got a good draw out in Germany under their belt in their opening Nations League fixture. They followed that up with an unexpected home win over the Netherlands. So there has been no come-down from them after the highs of the World Cup success in the summer. They are strong, reliable and stacked with depth. The last defeat which they suffered was back in March in a friendly against Colombia. France have plenty of scoring power, but this is a friendly and we are looking under 2.5 goals at 7/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on October 8th, 2018 at 3:34 p.m.).

That’s largely because we don’t see Iceland scoring. France too are going to save themselves for their upcoming rematch against Germany in the Nations League in midweek. So there is no great importance or urgency over this one, so they aren’t going to be in top gear. Because of that, a comfortable France 2-0 correct score option is at 5/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on October 8th, 2018 at 3:34 p.m.) in the correct score market. France have collected at least two goals in all but two of their last half a dozen games. So there is a small trend running. France have netted eleven goals in their last three home games against Iceland as well.

Iceland News and Form

It is not a good period that Iceland are going through at the moment. They seem to be on a bit of a decline after such a strong couple of years. They have been having problems with injuries, as well as a new manager in place. They have lost their last four in a row now and that includes some heavy losses in their Nations League openers, a 6-0 defeat against Switzerland and a 3-0 loss against Belgium. Defensively they are pretty weak and on top of that aren’t offering much creatively going forward.

With that in mind, a France to win to nil is at 8/11 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on October 8th, 2018 at 3:34 p.m.) and that is one of our leading options in France v Iceland predictions. Iceland are on a nine-match winless streak of form at the moment, losing seven of those. They have scored in just one of their last four too. There is very little there to back them getting anything out of this game against the World Champions.

France v Iceland Predictions

France to win: The gulf in class should be evident on the night between these two even though it is just a friendly. Iceland just aren’t there at the moment and France to win to nil appeals massively in our France v Iceland predictions.
