France vs Iceland Prediction & Tips
On the one hand a France with a thousand morale after the victory of the World Cup in Russia last July, on the other an Iceland that seems to have lost its enthusiasm and identity. For years the Icelanders have made all the nostalgic and romantic of football dream with their fairytale, now after a decidedly disappointing World Cup, things are going even worse. Iceland is called to react after a couple of extremely negative results, the problem is that being able to do it in front of the France World Champion will not be easy. Of course, however, no additional motivation will be needed to prepare for the challenge …
No psychological backlash or “full belly” syndrome for France after the World Cup victory: the first two races in the Nations League are excellent.
The transalpine, in fact, have blocked Germany at home in the debut in the new competition: 0-0 the final against the bitter German rivals.
Then, on French soil, the guys from Deschamps managed to get the better of a decidedly combative Holland: 2-1 the final result in favor of the Gallettis.
Not so well, however, went to Iceland, which as said suffered a severe psychological blow after the disappointing World Cup.
The Icelanders, in fact, have debuted in the Nations League as worst they could not: 6-0 very hard earned by Switzerland.
It went slightly better, if you can say so, in the second against Belgium: another defeat, this time at home, but “only” for 0-3.
It should be on paper a race without history, but the risk of these friendly is in the approach: France is likely to underestimate commitment and adversary. However, the odds of the hosts’ victory are very low: we choose the 1 at the end of the first half to raise the stakes a bit.
