Iceland vs Turkey
Euro 2020 Qualification
Date: Tuesday 11th June 2019
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Laugardalsvollur (Reykjavik).
This should be a very competitive and interesting game when Iceland who were so good at Euro 2016 will take on a much improved Turkey team who have just beaten France. The bookmakers have the nations at almost the same price, which just tells us how close this game could likely be.
Iceland have lost just 1 game in their past four although have only played one team of real quality in that time which was France in a game they lost 4-0. Their last game at home ended in a 1-0 win over Albania just at the weekend and the advantage Iceland have is that they will be at home again, so no travelling involved since their last win.
Iceland are in 3rd place in their group and on the same points as France, they could join Turkey on 9 points or fall six points behind them.
Turkey got a fantastic 2-0 win at home against France in their last game. They are a nation that are in brilliant form as they have won their last 5 games in a row. Although to be fair only France and perhaps Greece have been quality teams that they have faced. Turkey come into this game top of their group ahead of France.
Iceland vs Turkey: Head to Head
The last time the nations played was in 2017 when Iceland won 3-0 away to Turkey.
The last time this fixture was played when Iceland were at home was in 2016 when Iceland won 2-0.
In the 4 meetings that the nations have played Iceland have 3 wins and Turkey 1.
There is a 100% record for both teams NOT to score.
Iceland vs Turkey: Prediction
We are going to see a good game of football, but history is on Iceland’s side and could it be that Turkey are simply the pacesetters in the group? Iceland have a strong team and are at home and have good results against Turkey.
Also even though Turkey are in good form the majority of their wins have been against poor sides. Yes Turkey are strong at home but they haven’t really been tested against quality away and we are going to back Iceland to get the win here.
Iceland vs Turkey: Bet Tips:
Iceland to beat Turkey at 2.50 (6/4)
Correct Score: Iceland to win 1-0 or 2-0 at 7.00 (6/1) and 13.00 (12/1).
