France have only lost one game in the group stage so far. But that loss to Turkey has given both them and Iceland hope of a place in final top two.

Our Betting Tips

France know they cannot afford to slip up against the other top teams in the group after the defeat to Turkey. But a draw away in Iceland would not be the worse result in the world – as long as they took all three points from their match day eight fixture.

THE DRAW

With such talent in the French squad – even when players such as Kylian Mbappe are injured – it would seem likely that the visitors would score here. But the passionate home crowd in a small stadium could spur Iceland on to find the net as well.

Statistics

Head to Head

In 14 meetings between the two nations Iceland have never been able to beat the French. The last game, earlier in this qualification campaign, ended in a 4-0 defeat in Paris.

Stats

  • Iceland qualified for their first ever major finals when they made it to France for Euro 2016. After a memorable tournament – that included knocking England out – the smallest nation competing were beaten by the hosts in the quarter finals.
  • France played Iceland on this exact date one year ago in Guingamp. The match ended in a 2-2 draw but France were trailing 2-0 with just four minutes to go – and own goal and a Kylian Mbappe strike saved the day.
  • Before the defeat to Albania on match day six, Iceland had won three straight games at home. They have another two now in Reykjavik before finishing off with trips to Turkey and Moldova.
  • This is the biggest week of France’s Euro 2020 qualification campaign. A home match against Turkey in Paris follows this game in Iceland. It is absolutely vital that the World Cup champions do not drop too many points.

Our Prediction for Iceland vs France

A tense draw

France can afford to drop some points and still make it to the finals next summer. Iceland are desperate to get a win at home that will put them level with their visitors and Turkey. Even though the weather may not be kind to France they should be able to leave with a point.
