Iceland Albania betting prediction


Preview
Iceland and Albania meet at Laugardalsvöllur, in a match for this stage of the EC Qualification (Qualifying Round). There is no record of official head‑to‑heads between these two teams in the last 3 years. The last time they met, on 10‑09‑2013, the match ended with the final score: Iceland (2‑1) Albania. Albania registers significant differences between home and away results, so special attention is due to the home/away factor.

Analysis of Iceland

The home team comes to his 3rd round of Group H in the 4th position, with 3 points won, after 1 win and 1 loss. In their debut in this group stage they won in an away match against Andorra by (0‑2). In the second round, they lost in an away match against France by (4‑0). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses in away matches, with 18 goals scored and 26 conceded; against 7 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses at their stadium, with 25 goals scored and 21 conceded. In the last 10 home matches Iceland has won 3, tied 1 and lost 6. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 matches. There is a tendency for goals in their home matches, since 9 of the last 10 have ended with Over 1,5 goals and 7 out of 10 have ended with Over 2,5 goals. They haven't been able to score the first goal. In fact, they have only opened up the score in 3 of the last 15 matches, they have reached half‑time in advantage in all of those 3 matches and have held on to the lead in 1. They have conceded the first goal in 12 of their 15 matches, and have never been able to turn the score around.

The national team of Iceland face the Albanian national team. Both teams have 3 points in the competition and are aware that they need to win this duel. Iceland will have the home factor to be victorious, the support of their fans will be the differential. The coach should put in the field, maximum strength, who is 100%. They are aware that this match will be very important and decisive, as France and Turkey who are briefly in the spot also have a direct confrontation and also have the same number of points. The teams that are defeated will be gone, at least momentarily. In their last clash, Iceland suffered a 4-0 loss to France.

Confirmed Lineup: H. Halldórsson, A. Skúlason, H. Hermannsson, R. Sigurðsson, K. Árnason, B. Bjarnason, J. Guðmunds­son, A. Gunnarsson, G. Sigurðsson, R. Sigurjónsson, V. Kjartansson.
Coach: E. Hamrén.

Analysis of Albania

The away team comes to his 3rd round of Group H in the 3rd position, with 3 points won, after 1 win and 1 loss. In their debut in this group stage they lost at home against Turkey by (0‑2). In the second round, they won in an away match against Andorra by (0‑3). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 1 draw and 7 losses in away matches, with 20 goals scored and 18 conceded; against 4 wins, 2 draws and 9 losses at their stadium, with 8 goals scored and 23 conceded. In the last 7 away matches Albania has won 3, tied 1 and lost 3. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 9 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

The Albanian national team will face the national team of Iceland. It will not be an easy match for either team, it's a fact. But Albania see it more difficult for playing away from home, which is natural. Even so, they know it will be a decisive confrontation that can not be defeated and will go with all the best in the squad to win the match. Even because, they are aware that they need to win out also if they want to advance in the competition and even dream of something more. The coach knows the ability of his team and relies on his command, therefore, will put maximum force into the duel and should bet on his qualified offensive system to surprise the opponent. Their last confrontation was against Turkey, where they were defeated 2-0.

Confirmed Lineup: E. Berisha, K. Dermaku, E. Lenjani, F. Veseli, A. Ismajli, E. Hysaj, A. Abrashi, M. Basha, T. Xhaka, B. Balaj, S. Cikalleshi.
Coach: E. Reja.

Betting suggestion:

Iceland are looking for a place within the qualifying zone, so in this round it is essential that they win all three points. Playing next to their fans, the Icelanders should give it all. The visitors want to surprise and seek at least one point, which will be very positive if it happens. This should be a balanced game, but we see Iceland as the favorite for the duel, because they will play at home. We will bet on Iceland's victory until the end of the 90 minute game.
