Iceland – France, Euro Qualifiers Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR ICELAND - FRANCE
This loss from Albania can make a difference for Iceland, to their detriment, of course. In this group, any one of the three teams, Turkey, Iceland and France, if they make the wrong move against the weaker 3, could prove to be fatal. However, the good thing about Icelanders is that they will have the opportunity to correct this mistake. The goal is not to take less points from France than Turkey will take in their match with them and, of course, they will then have to defeat the Turks themselves as a guest.
The French were hardly expecting such serious competition in this group and perhaps few people imagined that in the remaining 4 games until the end of the groups, France would not be 1st. The truth is that the roosters play very well and only losing to Turkey as a guest has eclipsed the fans’ mood, but we believe that the world champion will no longer fail and show what he is capable of.
Expert view : It is important here that Pogba will not play, as he is a major part of Deschamps squad. Surely the roosters will be much more professional in this meeting and will hardly make mistakes like those with Turkey. Even so, the victory for France is too low, so we will give prediction on goals – Under 3.0 – Asian goal line at 1.65. Iceland has stable defense. The same goes for France. We expect the very approach to the match from both teams to be cautious, because it is one of the games that can decide the 1st place, and Iceland has no right to fail.
Iceland has 3 clean sheets in its last 4 home games
France have 5 clean sheets in their last 8 games
