Iceland vs Albania (By: Saconex)
UEFA Euro Qualification
Iceland (4) vs Albania (3)
This is the first home match for Iceland in the qualification. They started the campaign by winning 0-2 away vs Andorra (5) before being crushed 4-0 vs France (1), so as it stands they are placed 4th. Fact is that they are without a win in front of their fans since October 2017, but its important to remember that its mostly have been friendlies and two difficult Nations League matches vs Belgium & Switzerland.
Albania are placed 3rd after losing 0-2 at home vs Turkey (2) followed by winning 0-3 away vs Andorra (5). This team doesn’t really scare anyone on their travels, taking in mind that both Scotland & Israel were too strong in the Nations League, with all my respect, not two very good teams. I think this will be a hard one for the guests for sure.
* 2 meetings in the WC qualification 2012/2013: Iceland won both matches by 2-1/1-2
Im normally sceptic when it comes to teams without victories in front of their fans lately, but I still find value on the hosts today. This is Iceland´s first home match in the qualification and they will for sure be fired up to grab 3 points. Albania isnt a walkover, but when facing the hosting team with their high morale and aggression from start I think this will be too hard for them. Iceland to win by 2+ goals looks like good value to me.
