Israel vs Iceland Prediction & Match Preview

Israel vs Iceland UEFA Nations League Prediction by LeagueLane

Israel vs Iceland
UEFA Nations League
Date: Thursday, 2 June 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Sammy Ofer Stadium.

Iceland were part of the top-most league in the previous edition of the Nations League. However, they were relegated at the end of the campaign and now they will have to take part in the second division.

Their immediate objective would be to claim back the top-most tier, and considering the few number of games, they will have to kick into a higher gear right from the get-go.

However, they are going through a poor stretch of performances at the moment, and are letting in goals in huge numbers. This has put huge pressure on them, and especially so in their weakened back line. It’s a doubt if they would be able to keep a clean sheet this Thursday.

Meanwhile, Israel had finished second to last in League B in the previous edition. They will be targeting a higher finish this time around and will likely go after the three points against the struggling Iceland.

But one thing that needs to be taken into consideration is the form of the Israeli defense. They are letting in goals huge numbers, be it at home or on the road. And usually whenever they have gone after huge wins, their defense has let them down as well.

By the looks of things, chances are high for goals to come in plenty this Thursday between the 2 teams.

On the other hand, Iceland are on a 6-fixture winless run, and they had remained so in 11 of their previous 12 overall fixtures. Do also note that they had left in 5 or more goals in 2 of their preceding 3 matches.
