International Friendlies

Kick-Off at 21:00 UK / 22:00 CET
Venue: Laugardalsvollur, Reykjavik.

Iceland earned the right to feature the consecutive big stage event in a respectable fashion topping the challenging qualifying group head of the names of Croatia, Ukraine and Turkey. Nevertheless, the small Scandinavian nation is currently in the midst of a huge crisis coming into their final warm-up friendly before the World Cup opener against Argentina.

Heimir Hallgrimsson has huge issues with his side’s defensive displays since Iceland shipped three goals in each of last three defeats in friendlies against Mexico, Peru and Norway. The most recent loss came to neighbouring Norway on Saturday even though both Alfred Finnbogason and Gylfi Sigurdsson (team’s main stars) were on target. Everton’s Sigurdsson was not in the starting line-up against Norway, but he will certainly find his place there on Thursday when Iceland take on Ghana.

Iceland vs Ghana: Head-to-head

The two sides did not have the chance to take on each other in the past.

Iceland vs Ghana: Prediction

The Black Stars were frequent World Cup contestants in the last couple of editions but they will miss out on the tournament in Russia following the underwhelming qualifying campaign which saw them clinch only seven points in the group with Egypt, Uganda and Congo. Ghana hired Kwasi Appiah as the head coach in April last year and the team has really improved a lot ever since.

Ghana head into this undefeated in five straight outings in all competitions and off the back of an impressive 0-2 victory over World Cup contestant Japan last Wednesday. Thomas Partey and Emmanuel Boateng were on target for Appiah’s side who could easily take advantage of the obvious holes in Iceland’s defensive line on Thursday.

Backing goals at both ends is a must in these circumstances and we’ll take the 1.90 odds offered for such scenario all day long. The value is strong with Ghana to net two or more goals in the match at the 3.50 odds.

Iceland vs Ghana: Bet Tips

  • BTTS @ 1.90
  • Ghana Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 3.50.
