France vs Iceland Euro 2020 Qualification match will be played on Monday, 25 March 2019. Kick-Off will be at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET Venue being Stade de France (Paris).
As expected, France rolled over Moldova 4-1 in the opening match of their EURO 2020 qualifying campaign and they are considered hot favorites to win Monday’s football game against Iceland. Les Tricolores impressed in their opener, with both Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe founding the net against Moldova and all eyes will be on the duo when France face Iceland at Stade de France.
Over the years Didier Deschamps’ troops have turned the national stadium into a real fortress and we predict that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration. The Icelanders did well to beat Andorra 2-0 on the road in their opener, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against France.
A man to watch in the away team will be Everton midfielder Sigurdsson, but, taking everything into account, we believe that home win should be considered as les Tricolores are a real force to be reckoned with at home.
France vs Iceland prediction summary
In a repeat of the 2016 Euro quarter-finals, France welcome Iceland to the Stade de France for their second Group H match. The Icelanders need to lift their spirits after winning just one of their last 16 fixtures (W1, D6, L9), however, in France they face a nation they have never beaten!
The hosts started their qualification campaign by defeating Moldova 4-1 away last Friday. With that result, Didier Deschamps’ men have lost just one of their last 16 competitive games (W12, D3, L1), and if they win again here, it will likely be with a clean sheet as France have kept one in all but two of their previous 18 Euro qualifier home victories.
In polar opposite form, the Icelanders were on a run of six consecutive competitive losses when they finally tasted victory by defeating Andorra 2-0 in the opening round. However, a worry for Erik Hamrén will be that his side has conceded at least twice in 13 of their last 16 fixtures, whilst also failing to find the net on six occasions. Moreover, Iceland has conceded at least two goals in seven of their last eight clashes against France.
Unsurprisingly then, France has a dominant record in the H2H standings (W9, D4), scoring over three times as many goals as they have conceded (GF 37, GA 12).
Players to watch: The top scorer in France’s current set-up, Olivier Giroud (34 goals), has found the net in his last two international appearances. Meanwhile, Alfreð Finnbogason (ICE) has scored ten Bundesliga goals for Augsburg this term.
Stat attack: France has been leading ‘to nil’ at half-time in all six competitive H2Hs held in France.
Iceland has conceded 35 goals across their last 16 games – an average of 2.19 per match.
Both teams have scored in just two of France’s last 15 European qualifying home fixtures.
French citizens will have the chance to watch World Cup winners in the home soil for the first time in the new qualifying campaign as Les Bleus host Iceland in the second round of Group H tie at Stade de France in Paris. The clash between top two seeds in the group could determine its winner as the hosts obviously come into it as heavy ffavoritesfollowing their stellar showings last summer in Russia.
Didier Deschamps called up a squad very similar to the one which took the gold medal at the World Cup. Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe should lead the attacking line, while we would not be surprised to see Chelsea’s reserve Olivier Giroud in the starting line-up either here.
France did not win their respective Nations League group, but they confirmed a fine form winning seven points from four outings against Netherlands and France. They won four and drew one of five home matches in WC Qualification campaign netting four goals on two separate occasions in the process. Interestingly, the lone draw came against the likes of Luxembourg (0-0).
France vs Iceland: Head-to-head
We should be in for a goal-fest on Monday evening at Stade de France judging by the history of head to head ties between these two likes.
Each of the past seven H2H outings produced goals at both ends.
Teams played a 2-2 draw when they took on each other recently in a friendly last November.
Les Bleus celebrated a demolishing 5-2 victory in EURO 2016 quarter-final.
France vs Iceland: Free Prediction
Iceland won’t come into this edition of EURO Qualifications in the highest of spirits. They failed to go beyond the group phase at the World Cup in Russia clinching just one point in three group phase games. They then had a devastating run in UEFA Nations League losing all four games against Switzerland and Belgium in league A (1-13 goal difference in the process) under new manager Erik Hamren.
Iceland always had troubles to keep things quiet at the back against stronger sides. They historically conceded loads in matches with France and we really can’t imagine anything other than a comprehensive win for Les Bleus in a high-scoring affair in Paris.
