On 25.03.2019 in Group H in the European Championship Qualification is already on the second round. France and Iceland meet at the Paris Stade de France. In this case, we expect more than 2.5 goals are scored in the game, bookmakers offer odds of 1.65.
The national team of France and coach Didier Deschamps swim for years on the wave of success. At Euro 2016, the team failed only in the final to Portugal. Last summer, the team with the world stars Oliver Giroud, Blaise Matuidi, Ngolo Kante, Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe, Raphael Varane, Paul Pogba or Hugo Lloris became sovereign World Champion. Coach Deschamps has managed to make many talents a successful team. The French play fast attacking football, and are well-staffed in all parts of the team. Also in the Nation League, the team showed vivid performances. However, it was enough in League A Group 1 only for the second place behind the Netherlands and Germany. The final result was: two wins, one defeat and one draw, with a goal difference of 4:4. Also in the European Championship qualification, the team starts successfully with a 4:1 away from home win in Moldova. For the game against Iceland injured Kingsley Coman with back problems is not available.
The small Iceland football nation was able to qualify for the first time in 2016 for a European Championship and failed there only in the quarterfinals of France. In the round of 16 England was knocked out of the tournament. In the previous edition of World Cup, however, the team of coach Erik Hamren retired in the preliminary round. Iceland also performed poorly in the Nation League. In League A Group 2, the team took the last place behind Switzerland and Belgium. The team lost all matches with a goal difference of 1:13. That was not to be expected after the strong performances of the past years. After all, Iceland could successfully start in the European Championship qualification. Against Andorra, the team achieved a lacklustre 2:0 win away from home. For the match against France, the suspended centre-back Hördur Magnusson is not available.
The last five head-to-head games have won France three times, with two draws. Iceland managed to annoy big nations again and again in the past. Last fall, the team in a friendly game and the French a 2:2 demand. Due to the current form of the French, they are of course also in this game the clear favourite. Iceland should tackle the game very defensively and try to keep the clean sheet as long as possible. Our suggestion is Over 2.5 Goals, therefore, a bit risky.
