Iceland v Croatia Predictions & Betting Odds – World Cup 2018

Iceland v Croatia- World Cup 2018
Iceland v Croatia Betting Preview - World Cup 2018 26th June - 7.00 p.m Group D has produced some of the most exciting matches at the 2018 World Cup so far and we are hoping that continues. Croatia have six points on the board and with such a good goal difference they are likely to end up as group winners. Iceland have to win this game and hope things in the Nigeria v Argentina goes their way as well.

Iceland News and Form

Iceland will be feeling the heat in this one because only a win sets them up with a chance of moving through to the next round. That would be some performance if they could pull it off. After their brilliant 1-1 draw with Argentina in their opening group stage fixture, things fell apart for them in a 2-0 defeat against Nigeria and that will have been a hammer blow of a result for Iceland. If they could have won that and it was looking like their easiest game of the group, then they would have one huge foot in the round of 16. As it stands now everything is out of their own control. They have to win this and hope that Nigeria fail to beat Argentina. If Nigeria and Argentina draws then it will boil down to goal difference. You get the feeling that all of their good work against Argentina may end up being for nothing and that is such a shame for them. Iceland are not a team in form because they have taken just one victory in their last nine games played. They have suffered four defeats in their last six so they are going to have two shake all of that off and go for broke in this one. The big problem for Iceland is that they have been struggling for clean sheets because they haven’t managed one in any of their last nine games played. They are taking on such a good Croatia side in this one and the defensive frailties are going to be a huge concern. For our Iceland v Croatia prediction we are going with both teams not to score option at 4/5 odds with bet365* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 22nd, 2018 at 11:38 p.m.). [bbutton bookmaker="bet365"]

Croatia News and Form

Croatia have arguably been the best side of the group stage campaign so far, as they have rattled off five unanswered goals. Their display in their big 3-0 win over Argentina was just so impressive. That came after their 2-0 win over Nigeria. Their midfield is so good and it has been dominating their games for them. They have such quality in the middle of the park and Luka Modric has come up with a goal in both games so far for them, so he is worth considering in the anytime goalscorer market. Mathematically they need a point out of this to secure top spot, but that’s not likely to even be a factor at the end of the day. Even if they lost this it would need Nigeria to bang a few goals past Argentina for Croatia not the hold on to the top spot, such is their big goal difference advantage. At the end of the day then Croatia can coast a little bit in this one and save themselves for the knockout phase. They are good enough to keep Iceland at bay and under 2.5 goals is at 8/13 odds with bet365* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 22nd, 2018 at 11:38 p.m.).

Iceland v Croatia Head to Head

Croatia and Iceland were together in World Cup 2018 qualification and they traded home wins with a clean sheet during the campaign. Iceland won that qualification group ahead of Croatia. In the last four meetings, both teams have not scored in a match and overall in the head-to-head between Iceland and Croatia it is Croatia who are 4-1 ahead with one drawn game. During those previous meetings, Croatia have conceded just two goals in total.

Iceland v Croatia Betting Odds*

Croatia 11/8 Draw 12/5 Iceland 9/4 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 23rd, 2018 at 00:03 a.m.)

Iceland v Croatia Predictions

We have highlighted the threat of Croatia before the tournament and we are going to stick with them completing the job of winning all three of the group stage matches. Iceland really missed the boat in their second fixture and against a confident Croatia side are likely to miss out. Croatia to win to nil is our top betting tip.

Nigeria v Iceland Predictions & Betting Odds – World Cup 2018

Nigeria v Iceland- World Cup 2018
Nigeria v Iceland Betting Preview - World Cup 2018 22nd June - 4.00 p.m All credit due to Iceland for producing a point against Argentina in their opening group match. That was some debut to the World Cup that the Icelanders made as they held their own well and deserved their point. Can they drive on and bag themselves three points against Nigeria which would keep them in the hunt for a qualification spot? The Africans need to pick themselves up after a lacklustre defeat against Croatia to open with. Read our Nigeria v Iceland predictions for more.

Nigeria News and Form

Nigeria opened their World Cup 2018 campaign with a loss against Croatia, going down 2-0 in the game. They just never really got themselves up and running at all and they didn’t show a tremendous amount of fighting spirit. That is a D1 L4 record that the Africans have posted in their last five games and that is going to leave them vulnerable for this fixture. They have scored in just two of their last five games as well. So this is likely going to be a low scoring game and under 2.5 goals at bet356 is at 8/15 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 19th, 2018 at 9:47 p.m.).

Nigeria v Iceland World Cup 2018 Infographic

So there has been no form from the Super Eagles and if they don't dig a little deeper here and push on for the win then they are going to be out of this tournament. This probably is going to be a fairly tight game and in the bet365 correct score market, there is decent value at 11/2 on the 1-1 draw* (Betting Odds were taken from June 19th, 2018 at 9:47 p.m.). Nigeria drew a lot of criticism in their defeat against Croatia because they simply dropped their heads and didn’t play with any confidence or commitment really. They will be outperformed by Iceland in those departments. [bbutton bookmaker="bet365"]

Iceland News and Form

What an introduction it was for Iceland to World Cup competition. In their first ever game at a World Cup, they held one of the pre-tournament favourites, Argentina to a 1-1 draw. They fully deserved the point that they worked so hard to get. Yes, they were on the back foot and camped in their own half for most of the game, but they remained organised and they played with tremendous spirit. Iceland did also look really good on the break because when the timing was right, they just poured forward and showed some cracks in the Argentinean defence. Throw on top of that their aerial height from set pieces and they will beat rehat in this game. The only concern about backing them outright to win the game is that they are not in winning touch, much like Nigeria. Iceland are only D2 L3 in their last five games played which isn't great and their defence has been vulnerable in that sequence. But they don’t look too likely to lose against Nigeria realistically and if they can get up a head of steam, there is a big three points on offer for them here. The bet365 first goalscorer market favourite is Alfred Finnbogason who is at 5/1* (Betting Odds were taken from June 19th, 2018 at 9:47 p.m.) and he had a great game up front holding the ball up against Argentina.

Nigeria v Iceland Head to Head

This will be the first-ever game between Nigeria and Iceland.

Nigeria 19/10 Iceland 17/10 Draw 11/5 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 19th, 2018 at 9:47 p.m.)

Nigeria v Iceland Predictions

Iceland are such a difficult team o break down but they cause so many threats from set pieces and direct counter-attacks. They will get their chances against Nigeria, built for our Nigeria v Iceland predictions were are expecting a low scoring, tight game and the draw in the match outright appeals.

The best match bets of the World Cup group stage

World Cup 2018 Betting
We look at the first round of World Cup group fixtures and seek out the best possible value. The 2018 World Cup kicks off on Thursday 14 June, with Russia clashing with Saudi Arabia and we’re casting our eye over the first round of group games to hunt out the best value. The Russians are a terrible price to win this curtain-raiser considering they have a low FIFA ranking, although there are some better odds over the coming days should you want to strike some bets. URUGUAY look a decent shout at 4/7 odds with bet365* (betting odds taken on June 5th, 2018 at 2:19 a.m.) for the other Group A opener if the South American side can tame Mohamed Salah and his Egyptian teammates. La Celeste have * (betting odds taken on June 5th, 2018 at 2:19 a.m.) in attack and will be out to make this a successful tournament in an easy section. The Uruguayans * (betting odds taken on June 5th, 2018 at 2:19 a.m.)in the CONMEBOL qualifying section and Oscar Tabarez has a wealth of experience within the ranks, while there are* (betting odds taken on June 5th, 2018 at 2:19 a.m.)coming through. * (betting odds taken on June 5th, 2018 at 2:19 a.m.) on 15 June when they face Portugal in their Group B opener. While the European champions will play defensively, the* (betting odds taken on June 5th, 2018 at 2:19 a.m.) to create chances and get an early three points on the board. An eye-catching * (betting odds taken on June 5th, 2018 at 2:19 a.m.) suggests that La Roja could be the team to beat this summer and there’s a bunch of midfield playmakers who can keep the ball and make life difficult. ICELAND are 8/1 odds at bet365* (betting odds taken on June 5th, 2018 at 2:19 a.m.) to beat Argentina in their Group D opener, with the European side looking to nullify Lionel Messi and the other dangerous forwards, with a potential shock on the cards for the European team. The Icelanders play with no fear and will consider the opener as the best time to be facing La Albiceleste who have well-documented defensive problems. CROATIA are a 17/20 poke with bet365* (betting odds taken on June 5th, 2018 at 2:19 a.m.) to beat Nigeria and there could be a gulf in class between the two teams, with the former likely to dominate the ball in midfield and it could see them come through comfortably. Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic are particularly adept at controlling the game and their experiences for Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively provide a big advantage. SERBIA also look a big shout to overcome Costa Rica in the Group E curtain-raiser, with the Serbs likely to have a big following in Russia and they have an experienced spine of players which can help them enjoy a winning start.

Argentina v Iceland Predictions & Betting Odds – World Cup 2018

Argentina v Iceland- World Cup 2018
Argentina v Iceland Betting Preview - World Cup 2018 16th June - 2.00 p.m (Full time: 1:1 - goals: (Full time: 1:1 - goals: AgĂĽero 19' - Finnbogason 23') What a fascinating game this should be from Group D. Here you have Iceland who are making their World Cup debut and who proved at Euro 2016 a team spirit and self-belief alone can get you a long way. Will Argentina, the 2014 runners-up, be able to find a way to break the spirited Europeans? Argentina will be looking for a positive start in what is a potentially tricky group which they are favourites to win.

Argentina News and Form

Punters have not been afraid to oppose Argentina by backing Croatia to win Group D. That has all come about because Argentina failed to produce a very convincing World Cup 2018 qualification campaign. They struggled for goals and they struggled for away form. So it was very impressive stuff from them, but then again they did not look particularly great at the 2014 World Cup but still managed to finish second. The South Americans will be looking for a confident start going to give themselves a good platform to build on in what should be a competitive group with Croatia and Nigeria to come. For our Argentina v Iceland predictions we are taking a look in the bet365 correct score market where an Argentina 1-0 result is at 4/1 odds* (betting odds taken on June 11, 2018, at 7:20 p.m.).

Argentina v Iceland World Cup 2018 Infographic

That will again be based on their lack of goal output during qualification. So while they are favourites for this game they may not be able to produce a victory by a large margin. Despite the wealth of attacking talent that they do have it’s not very often you see them playing at a high tempo or in full out attack mode. They are able unfortunate enough to be able to rely on the brilliance of Lionel Messi who is the 11/5 odds first goalscorer favourite* (betting odds taken on June 11, 2018, at 7:20 p.m.) at bet365. Argentina’s record since the start of September last year reads W4 D3 L2 those two losses have happened in their last four games. Interestingly one of the defeats at the Albiceleste suffered in that sequence of games was against Nigeria who they will be meeting at the World Cup in the group stage. Anyway, looking at the positive for Argentina the South Americans have scored at least two goals in three of their last four games and are currently on a six-match scoring streak. [bbutton bookmaker="bet365"]

Iceland News and Form

Iceland have a tremendous work rate and tremendous team spirit, but will that combine enough to rattle the cage of Argentina? After their huge tremendous success at Euro 2016 and then following that up by winning their World Cup 2018 qualification group over Croatia, it hasn’t installed much belief with punters that they are going to have a huge impact in their World Cup debut. They are rank outsiders in Group D and that is a pretty fair assessment given that the form of Iceland hasn’t been great in their buildup. So for Argentina v Iceland predictions, the Europeans are not going to have a tremendous amount of appeal to produce a shock victory. Iceland have produced only a W1 D2 L4 record in their last seven games and surprisingly they have been badly exposed in defence during a sequence. In each of their last four games Iceland have conceded at least two goals and in three of those four games, Iceland conceded exactly 3 goals. So their defence looks there for the taking at the moment and that is going to be problematic for them in trying to keep Argentina’s attack quiet. Iceland have scored in all but one of their last nine games and you are looking at 6/4 odds on the bet365 both teams to score option* (betting odds taken on June 11, 2018, at 7:20 p.m.). As another of our Argentina v Iceland predictions, it may be worth looking over 2.5 goals as a long shot alternative, and that is because three of Argentina’s last four games and each of Iceland’s last four, have all made it above the 2.5 goal line.

Argentina v Iceland Head to Head

The two nations will be breaking new ground in this fixture as they have never met before.

Argentina v Iceland Betting Odds*

Argentina 1/3 Draw 7/2 Iceland 10/1 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 12th, 2018 at 8:29 p.m.)

Argentina v Iceland Predictions

Argentina may well find Iceland a tricky and unusual opponent to have to deal with, and the Albiceleste weren’t all that great through qualification. But they do have the individual talent there to handle themselves and it is worth backing the South Americans to come through this test with a victory but consider the draw/Argentina half-time/ full-time option.

Iceland v Austria Predictions & Betting Odds – Women’s Euro 2017 26th July 2017

Football Betting
Iceland v Austria Betting Preview - Women's Euro 2017 26th July After back to back defeats Iceland are going home. They have produced some good resilience, but it hasn’t been good enough. As for Austria though, who are making their debut in the tournament, they have a chance of actually winning their group above France. A win gives them a shot at that, while they just need a draw to actually guarantee their place in the quarter finals. That alone will be a sign of great progress from them. Can they put pressure on France by winning this game? Take advantage of some fantastic football betting products available at online betting site Bet365.

Iceland v Austria Betting Tips

This should be an interesting game to get into. This will be the first clash between the two nations at the Women’s Euros. Iceland are already eliminated though, despite nearly pulling off a huge point against France in their opening game. They lost that and suffered a defeat against Switzerland to follow up with. So there’s nothing in this for them, but for Austria, this is a different matter. Euro''s debutantes Austria are in with a chance of getting through here and they only need a draw to do it as long as Switzerland don’t beat France. Of course, if Austria just wins they will be guaranteed a place in the next round. They go into this final fixture level on points with France and if they finish level on points they will be split on overall goal difference, then overall goals scored, then disciplinary. With Iceland not having put up much attack in the competition so far, Austria to win to nil at bet365 is a 15/8 punt. This will actually be just the second competitive game between these two and the previous one was a U17 game back in 2011 with Austria winning it 2-1. In the bet365 correct score market, Austria to win 1-0 is a 9/2 punt and that looks pretty good value. After opening with a good 1-0 win over Switzerland, Austria put in a great show to hold France to a 1-1 draw in their second match to set themselves up well for progress. They really should be alright if they just manage to avoid defeat in this one. It will probably be a low scoring game and under 2.5 goals at bet365 for this fixture is a price of 1/2.

Iceland v Austria Betting Odds

Austria 4/5, Draw 2/1, Iceland 17/4

Iceland v Austria Predictions

Austria to win: It makes sense to run with Austria collecting a victory in this one. They have a big golden carrot in front of them in winning the group and potentially avoiding England. With Iceland having nothing to play for, back Austria to get that win on the board. Austria winning to nil will have appeal as well.

Iceland v Switzerland Predictions & Betting Odds – Women’s Euro 2017 22nd July 2017

Football Betting
Iceland v Switzerland Betting Preview - Women's Euro 2017 22nd July A big game in the context of qualification hopes for both of these at the Women’s Euro. They both suffered 1-0 defeats in their respective opening games of the tournament and so there are a big three points up for grabs in this one. Switzerland are narrow favourites but they may have to content with a resilient Iceland who very nearly dug in to grind out a point against tournament favourites France in their opener. Online betting site Bet365 offer great 0-0 bore draw insurance on matches which you can take advantage of. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half-time/full-time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet.

Iceland v Switzerland Betting Tips

This is a big occasion for both of these now after they both lost their opening games in the competition. A defeat and someone will be going home. There is recent form between the two as they met at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifying, with the Swiss taking a 2-0 and a 3-0 win over the Icelanders. So the Swiss are well up in the head to head and they need to take a step forward after losing 1-0, a little surprisingly, in their opener to Austria. Switzerland and Iceland have only met the six times before, which includes friendly meetings and the Swiss are well up in the overall head to head, having won four, lost one and drawn one. Across those meetings, Switzerland have scored 13 goals to Iceland’s five. Goals may be at a premium in this one and under 2.5 goals at bet365 is a price of 4/7. Both teams not to score in the match is a good 8/11 punt. Iceland nearly pulled off one of the results of the opening round as only a late penalty from France denied them what would have been a great point. But Iceland, who had to endure a lot of pressure from France, almost did enough and that was such a good defensive effort against one of the best teams in the tournament, that suggests that they can give the Swiss a rough run. In the bet365 correct score market, a 0-0 may have some appeal at a price of 13/2 but that would probably suit Iceland more as their final game is against Austria, while the Swiss have to face France. Both have to go into the game with a winning mindset though. Switzerland have won two of their last three meetings against Iceland by a 2-0 scoreline though, and a Switzerland 2-0 is up at a price of 17/2. In the anytime goalscorer market, Switzerland's Fabienne Humm is 7/4 favourite while Lara Dicekenmann, who has scoring form against Iceland is a 3/1 punt.

Iceland v Switzerland Betting Odds

Iceland 5/2, Draw 23/10, Switzerland 17/13

Iceland v Switzerland Predictions

Draw: There may not be too much to split these two and Iceland impressed through their resilience in their opener against France. They won’t come under as quite as much pressure as they did against the French and the Icelanders can stick in there for a point.

Iceland v Croatia Predictions & Betting Odds – 11th June 2017

Iceland
Iceland v Croatia Betting Preview - World Cup 2018 Qualifiers 11th June This should be one of the more competitive World Cup qualifiers that are going off over the weekend. This is a battle for top spot in Group I of qualification and Croatia lead the way with a three point advantage over Iceland. So the home side get a great chance here to pull themselves level on points with the leaders, while Croatia have a huge opportunity to extend their lead at the top of the table and strengthen their position to win the group. Online betting site Bet365 offer great 0-0 bore draw insurance on matches which you can take advantage of. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half-time/full-time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet. This applies to all matches in their sportsbook. Register an account with the award winning Bet365 and earn a 100% matched deposit bonus from them and enjoy top features like live sports streams, extensive live in play betting and partial cash out options on live bets.

Iceland v Croatia Betting Tips

This should be a good game. Iceland have enough incentive in potentially closing the gap on Croatia to go out and attack in this one. They are three points back of the leaders and have posted a W3 D1 L1 record so far in the group. They did lose 2-0 out in Croatia earlier in the campaign, but at home they have won both of their matches so far, in taking down both Turkey and Finland. So they will be hopeful for this one even though Croatia look very strong. An Iceland 1-0 correct score at bet365 is a price of 9/1 and it’s hard to see a win for Iceland happening any bigger than that. This could be a pretty tight battle and under 2.5 goals is a price of 8/13 with bet365 for the game. The last time that these two met in Iceland, there was a 0-0 draw in World Cup 2014 qualification. Iceland have yet to beat Croatia, having gone just D1 L4 in their five previous matches against them. A Croatia 2-0 correct score at bet365 is a good quote of 15/2 and they have won their last two games against Iceland by that scoreline. So there's a trend. Croatia have been very strong in the group, posted an unbeaten W4 D1 record and scoring eleven goals and conceding just the one along the way. A Croatia to win to nil option at bet365 is a price of 21/10. Mario Mandzukic is the group’s top scorer with four goals so far and he can be backed at a price of 8/5 in the anytime goalscorer market. For Iceland, their top scorer is Alfred Finnbogason who is a 10/3 option. Croatia have won both of their away games in the group so far, beating Finland and Kosovo, and six of their eleven goals in qualification so far came in that one game against Kosovo. So this should be tight.

Iceland v Croatia Betting Odds

Croatia 21/20, Draw 11/5, Iceland 11/4

Iceland v Croatia Predictions

Draw: There is so much a stake in this one, it may be one of those occasions where either deliver. Croatia are unbeaten and will be happy enough with a point in this difficult away game, as that one point would keep them top of the pile.

Ireland v Iceland Predictions & Betting Odds – 28th March 2017

Stephen Ward (Ireland)
Ireland v Iceland Betting Preview - International Friendly 28th March Ireland earned themselves a good, if unspectacular point at home against Wales in World Cup qualifying over the weekend, which leaves the men in green in a decent position to push forward Russia next summer. The Welsh, well not so much. Ireland play host to the underdog heroes of Euro 2016, Iceland on Tuesday night to round out the international break with. The Irish are a tough side to knock down at home, but Iceland themselves are going well enough at the moment on their quest to make it to the World Cup that they will likely keep themselves in this for a long period. One of the top football betting products around is Bet365’s 0-0 Bore Draw Insurance which they offer on all matches listed in their sportsbook. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half time/full time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet. This applies to all matches in their sportsbook. Register an account with the award winning Bet365 and earn a 100% matched deposit bonus from them and enjoy other top features like each-way goalscorer odds, live streams and cash out options.

Ireland v Iceland Betting Tips

The Irish battled their way to a good home point against Wales in the World Cup 2018 qualifiers over the weekend. It wasn’t a game which had a great deal of quality in it, truth be told, but from Ireland’s perspective it was a good point. They are now sat in second place in their group, level with leaders Serbia and behind them, they have a four point cushion still over Wales, so things are looking positive for the men in green. Ireland have yet to taste defeat in the World Cup 2018 qualifiers and they have only been beaten once in their last eight international friendly matches. So they aren’t likely going to take a hit on home soil in this one and it’s most likely going to end up being a low-scoring affair. Under 2.5 goals at Bet365 returns a price of 1/2 for Ireland v Iceland betting. This season Ireland are W4 D2 in their six games and they have picked up a clean sheet in four of those six matches played. They haven’t conceded in any of their last three home games and Ireland to win to nil at Bet365 will return you a price of 9/4. There’s not a tremendous amount of appeal in the anytime goalscorer market, but Shane Long and Kevin Doyle are 2/1 joint favourites at Bet365. Ireland have great resilience about them and they have lost just two of their last ten matches overall and those were against France and Belgium at Euro 2016. In many ways, Iceland were the stars of Euro 2016 with their underdog heroics catching attention everywhere. They landed a win against Kosovo on the weekend in the World Cup 2018 qualifiers and they are sat second in their qualification group behind Croatia, so we could be seeing them next summer in Russia. Iceland have gone W5 D1 L2 in their last eight games played so they are in decent form. Each of Iceland’s last five games (this one on Tuesday being the sixth) have all been away from home, so they have been travelling a lot. The Icelandic team have conceded in just two of their last six games played, so again, an indicator that this will probably be a low scoring friendly. Vidar Orn Kjartansson is 5/2 and Jon Dadi Bodvarsson 11/2 Bet365 anytime goalscorer options for them. They are pretty much as solid as Ireland are and in the Bet365 correct score market a 1-1 draw is a price of 9/2 with the 0-0 draw just a little longer priced at 11/2.

Ireland v Iceland Betting Odds

Ireland 5/4, Draw 2/1, Iceland 13/5

Ireland v Iceland Predictions

Draw: This is a midweek friendly between two battling sides and as the stakes on this one are non-existent, this will probably rapidly fade away into a dull non-contest. Ireland are hard to beat on home soil and are going along well at the moment, but Iceland are no pushovers and they can arrive in Dublin and earn a draw.

France v Iceland Predictions & Betting Odds – Euro 2016

France v Iceland Euro 2016
France v Iceland Betting Preview - Euro 2016, 3rd July Iceland have put in a tremendous amount of work so far at Euro 2016 and they have enjoyed their rewards. After putting up a W1 D2 record in the group stage to finish second, they raised their game even further in their first ever knockout stage match in a major tournament, but finishing off England. So now host nation France are waiting for them in the quarter finals. Can the brave Iceland side take their journey even further, or will France, with all the attacking power that they have in their squad, be able to come up with the answers to move through to the semi finals? Thanks to a great promotion that online betting site Betfred have going for the European Championships, you can extend your anytime goalscorer wagers through extra time as well.

France v Iceland Betting Tips

Will the French be a little nervous about this one? Maybe so after seeing Iceland having already come through some big tests, notably against Portugal and England. France, one of the pre-tournament favourites haven’t come out of the starting blocks too quickly in any of their matches so far. It hasn’t quite been the dominant performances from them that they were supposed to have produced but on the other side of that, they have gotten through their tests through a bit of grit in the end along with some individual brilliance. They have a strong squad, full of great options and after their come from behind win over Ireland in the last round, that would have topped off their confidence a bit you would imagine. Antoine Griezmann was on the scoresheet twice against Ireland and he can be backed at 7/5 in the anytime goalscorer market for the game, with team mate Olivier Giroud at 11/10. With Iceland having taken just one clean sheet in their last eleven internationals, this is a great chance for France. France are capable of putting a strong ninety minutes together, but haven’t done so yet at Euro 2016. They will have learned lessons from Iceland’s triumph over England no doubt because they can expect their opponents to throw much the same things at them. Iceland pressed surprisingly high against England, but France have far more craft than the Three Lions in exploiting that. Four of the last five games between France and Iceland have gone over 2.5 goals and this one to go the same way will return you a price of 11/10. France have netted at least two goals in five of their last six games against Iceland, the last two clashes ending in 3-2 wins for Les Bleus. Both teams to score in this one is a price of 6/4 (both having scored in each of the last five meetings). It’s not too likely that the French are going to give up two goals in this one, as the two goals they have conceded in the tournament have both been from the penalty spot. Iceland have never recorded an international victory over France. But with them having beaten England in what was their first ever major tournament knockout stage fixture, they will be believing in themselves, particularly with them having been so comfortable against the Three Lions. Iceland have scored in each of their last twelve games played now and have conceded in all but one of their last eleven played. So the one thing to expect when Iceland turn up for a game is goals. Their four games at Euro 2016 have either produced a 1-1 draw or a 2-1 victory. The 1-1 draw in the correct score market is 8/1 while a 2-1 win for Iceland would return odds of 28/1. Iceland are fearless, they defend doggedly and play to simple strengths in getting forward. However, they will face a much more composed and talented side in France than they did against England.

France v Iceland Predictions

As much as the neutral would love to see it, it’s unrealistic to believe that Iceland are going to go all the way and win the tournament. They are likely to be stopped in their tracks here, because the French are versatile and crafty enough to produce a victory in this one. It may well be worth backing both to score, but France have more options at their disposal to call upon and they will find a way to edge out the minnows. France to win and over 2.5 goals.

England v Iceland Betting Tips

England are really going to have to step up to the plate sooner or later. They didn’t deliver at any point in the group stage really with a W1 D2 record. They failed to take a hatful of chances against a very poor Russian side in their opener, then needed a late, late goal to put a win on the board over Wales and then no matter what they tried, they couldn't break down a Slovakia side who were defending their way to a precious point from the off. It’s that lack of clinical finishing from England which is the biggest worry. Do they have the creativity and invention to break defensive sides? However, they are in the round of sixteen, so still in with a chance and they couldn’t have drawn a better fixture for the round of sixteen. On paper at least, as they take on minnows Iceland. Can England deliver the complete attacking performance they need? Harry Kane may come back into the starting eleven to reclaim his place and he is 7/4 outright favourite in the anytime goalscorer market. Daniel Sturridge, Jamie Vardy, Marcus Rashford and Wayne Rooney are all 2/1 quotes to net on the day. While England have struggled for wins, they really haven't looked like getting beaten and probably the only thing that will trip them up down the line is themselves not being able to break down a defensive side when they need to. England won the only previous meeting between these two, a 6-1 win back in 2004 and that was a game in which Wayne Rooney netted a brace in. Maybe that’s good omen for this one. Over 2.5 goals is worth a flutter at 6/4 and England to win to nil is a quote of even money. In the England v Iceland Correct Score market for the game you have have an England 1-0 option as the 3/1 shortest price option. Iceland have put in some hard, hard graft at Euro 2016 so far. They pretty much defended for the entire group stage matches they played. They opened with that dramatic draw against Portugal then they undid themselves through an own goal in a 1-1 draw with Hungary before netting a dramatic winner over Austria in their final group stage match. Iceland actually netted four goals in their group stage campaign. England netted three. Both teams to score in his game is a7/4 punt and Iceland have scored in each of their last eleven games (as well as conceding). Kolbeinn Sigthorsson is a 6/1 shot in the anytime goalscorer market for them. England should get chances considering Iceland shipped a goal in each of their group stage games so seeing them blank the Three Lions is hard to picture.

England v Iceland Betting Odds

England 8/15, Draw 29/10, Iceland 15/2

England v Iceland Predictions

Sooner or later surely England really have to deliver that attacking force that they have spoken so much about. That’s pretty much their one go-to game plan, throw the kitchen sink at attack. They still need some more work to make that a viable route it would seem,as they are just lacking that killer instinct. Maybe it will come good here, but either way they are value to win comfortably to nil.
