Iceland vs Latvia by Garc1

9th round of Group A of Euro 2016 qualifiers between Iceland and Latvia .


Iceland is the biggest surprise for me at this time, no one could even imagine that at the end of 8 rounds they could have win 6 games, drew 1 and lose only one in the group stage with teams like Netherlands ,Turkey and Czech Republic. Pretty amazing record,19 points so far and 15 goals scored, a very effective and offensive football.


At home Iceland has 8 goals scored and only 1!!! Conceded in the clash between Czech Republic so we can say that they concede very few and the defence is very effective.


Probable team: Hannes Thor Halldorsson, Ari Skulason, Ragnar Sigurdsson, Kari Arnason, Birkir Saevarsson, Johann Gudmundsson, E. Hallfreosson, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Birkir Bjarnason, Kolbeinn Sigthrsson, Jon Boedvarsson – Coach: Lars Lagerbäck


Latvia comes to this match with 4 points, 4 goals scored and 16 conceded, lost against this Iceland at home by 3-0, outside they have 1 loss and 3 draws, conceding 8 goals and scored 2 but of the 8 goals, 6 were from Netherlands in only one game.


Probable team: Andris Vanins, Vitalijs Maksimenko, Kaspars Dubra, Kaspars Gorkss, Gints Friemanis, Vladimirs Kamess, Aleksandrs Fertovs, Igors Tarasovs, Arturs Zjuzins, Arturs Karasausks, Deniss Rakels


Coach:Constantin Schumacher


Now, with these number you may think that Iceland will crush Latvia, but something caught my attention , this Latvia drew 3 times in 4 away matches, against turkey and Czech Republic.


I Think that Iceland have the quality to win, they definitely will be in the Euro finals, Czch republic plays against turkey so they need this win to secure 1st place of the group, but with an Latvian team that will only defend and try to don’t lose by many my choice goes for Iceland and under 2,5 goals because I see big value in a win by 1-0/2-0.
