Iceland VS Turkey

Preview
Iceland and Turkey meet at Laugardalsvöllur, in a match for this stage of the EC Qualification (Qualifying Round). The head‑to‑head history of the last 3 years favours the home team, since in the last 3 matches they won 2 and lost 1. The last head‑to‑head between these two teams was played on 06‑10‑2017, and ended in a (0‑3) win by Iceland. Turkey registers significant differences between home and away results, so special attention is due to the home/away factor.

Analysis of Iceland

After 2 wins and 1 loss, the home team is currently in the 3rd position, with 6 points won. In the last match, they have won (1‑0) at home against Albania, after in the previous round they have lost (4‑0) in an away match against France. 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 22 goals scored and 21 conceded. Iceland has won 3, tied 1 and lost 6 of the last 10 home matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 9 of the last 10 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals and 7 out of 10 have ended with Over 2,5 goals. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 11 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

Iceland take part in this motivated game after a 1-0 win at the welcome to Albania, adding to their second triumph in this qualifying campaign for Euro 2020: the only goal of the team was signed by Gudmundsson. In this game against Turkey, coach Erik Hamren should line up the usual 4-4-2 favoring the defensive organization and successive counterattacks, exploiting the best space on the defensive line of the opponent. The offensive midfielder Sigurdsson is the highlight of this Icelandic team, which is very important in the offensive process and in the stands. There are no major absences for this game.

Confirmed Lineup: H. Halldórsson, H. Hermannsson, R. Sigurðsson, A. Skúlason, A. Gunnarsson, K. Árnason, B. Bjarnason, E. Hallfreðsson, G. Sigurðsson, J. Guðmunds­son, J. Böðvarsson.

Analysis of Turkey

The away team is currently in the 1st position, with 9 points won, after 3 wins. In the penultimate round, they have won a home match against Moldova by (4‑0). In the last round, they have won a home match against France by (2‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 19 goals scored and 22 conceded; against 9 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses at their stadium, with 22 goals scored and 12 conceded. Their last away match for this competition ended in a win by (0‑2) against Albania. In the last 9 away matches Turkey has won 2, tied 4 and lost 3. In their away matches there is a tendency for goals, since 9 of the last 9 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 5 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

The Turkey squad start for the match with a fantastic 2-0 win against France: the three-goal goals were signed by Ayhan and Under. Despite playing away from home, it will be natural for coach Senol Gunes to keep the team drawn at 4-3-3, benefiting maintenance of ball possession and attacks organized by runners. Forward Burak Yilmaz is one of the most important players in Turkey, being very powerful and strong in the air. For this game the Turkish picker can count on all his players.

Confirmed Lineup: M. Günok, M. Çelik, H. Kaldırım, M. Demiral, K. Ayhan, D. Toköz, O. Tufan, İ. Kahveci, H. Çalhanoğlu, K. Karaman, B. Yılmaz.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this game will be the existence of a few goals. We admit that this game will be very disputed, with some moments of the game opened, however, it is anticipated that the Turks have more initiative in the game since they have a superior team. Having said this and analyzing the defensive performance of the two formations, betting in the goals in this game is of great value.
