Tip Iceland - France
France have picked three straight wins in the qualifiers since their loss to Turkey, and have scored three or more in the process. Actually, save for the loss to Turkey, where they failed to score, France have netted at least twice in their Group H matches. They have three clean sheets in the six matches. France hit Iceland 4 – 0 in their first leg meeting and twice in the last three away matches in the qualifiers, they have scored four goals. France have just one loss in their last 12 away matches in the Euro qualifiers. In 14 matches against Iceland, France have never lost; they have won 10. While they have dominated this fixture, France have managed just one clean sheet in the last eight matches against Iceland.
Iceland head to this game on the back of a 2 – 4 loss to Albania. They have managed 12 points from their opening six matches and know just how crucial this home match can be, having to face Turkey and Moldova away later in the qualifiers. They picked three straight home wins in the qualifiers before falling to Albania and they will want this trend to continue when they host France and one factor that they will want to bank on is the fact that they have scored in seven of the last eight matches against France. In nine Euro qualifiers at home, Iceland have not lost, only drawing two, and should they extend this against France, they will be well boosted for a third straight appearance at a major tournament.
Key points Iceland - France
Iceland have scored in seven of the last eight matches against France.
Only four of the 14 meetings between the two nations have produced under 2.5 goals.
Iceland have not lost in the last nine Euro qualification matches.
Conclusion Iceland - France
Iceland have a good home run in the qualifiers; they have seven wins in the last nine and have won each of their three at home in the current qualifiers. They will be seeking to hit 15 points after this game but they will have to do much against a France side that has done so well in the qualifiers. France have never lost to Iceland in the 14 matches they have faced off and we will be backing them for another win here, probably 2 – 1, going by the scoring trends in this clash.
