Iceland vs Belgium
UEFA Nations League
Date: Wednesday, 14 October 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Laugardals Vollur, Reykjavik.
Belgium have made big step backwards in their attempt to win UEFA Nations League Group 2 this season. They got defeated by England last weekend 1-2 FT, so current position requires three victories in the last three rounds.
The first stop is Reykjavik where The Red Devils will face Iceland. Hosts haven’t won a single point in this competition so far, but it’s never wise to simply write them off.
Belgium are huge favorites at 1.25 odds, which is hardly going to get us anywhere in terms of profit. Let’s take a look at some alternative options.
Iceland vs Belgium Head-to-head
Taking a look at stats and previous results for matches between these teams might not be interesting if you are Iceland fan. They faced Belgium 12 times so far and lost every single encounter, conceding 42 and scoring only seven goals.
The last three head to head meetings were all played as part of UEFA Nations League. Belgium have won them with total goal difference of 10-1.
Iceland vs Belgium Prediction
Belgium completely destroyed Iceland in the second round in Brussels despite being behind after ten minutes.
Holmbert Fridjonsson scored the opener for Iceland in that duel, but everything that happened later on was horrible for his team. Witsel, Batshuayi (x2), Mertens and Doku scored for The Red Devils which eventually won the game 5-1.
Belgium’s fans were unhappy with Roberto Martinez using reserve players mostly for a friendly match against Ivory Coast (1-1).
When the big stars returned against England, it looked like they could have used a bit more practice playing together, losing that very important duel 1-2 FT.
Iceland have lost every duel quite convincingly so far, having 1-9 goal difference at the moment.
We are not giving them any chance against Red Devils either, so going either for Away win HT/FT or win in handicap is very similar choice.
Iceland vs Belgium Bet Tips
Away win HT/FT @ 1.80
