France vs Iceland predictions and betting tips for the International Friendly fixture on Thursday 11th October. Will the World Champions pile more misery on Iceland after they conceded nine goals in their previous two matches?
Kick-off time – 8pm
Date: Thursday 11th October
Stadium: Stade du Roudourou, Guingamp
Fresh from their World Cup victory in Russia in the summer, the French got straight back into competitive action with a draw and a win in their two Nations League matches over Germany and then the Netherlands. Iceland had a quite opposite set of results, losing 6-0 to Switzerland and 3-0 to Belgium. These results come on the back of a poor World Cup which seen Iceland pick up just one point from their three group matches. France’s quality is well known after Russia this summer and their young squad have the potential to be a dominant force, just like Spain were 10 years ago.
It’s now nine matches without a win for Iceland and their exploits from Euro 2016 are well and truly over, the last things they want here is probably an away match to France. It’s impossible to predict anything but a home win here but for our France vs Iceland predictions we’re going for a France win to nil.
Give that that is a friendly, we always need to be wary about picking goalscorer bets because there is a chance that managers might be looking to change his starting XI from the norm. Therefore you should always check the team news before having a bet but we can be confident that Mbappe will play in this fixture after his sensational four goals in 14 minutes for PSG at the weekend. The young superstar was pivotal to France winning the World Cup and he looks set to be a star for many years to come for Les Blues. Mbappe to open the scoring is going down in our football betting tips for this friendly as the French prepare for their UEFA Nations League fixture against Germany next week.
Even though Iceland held Argentina to a 1-1 draw at the World Cup in the summer, their reign as ‘over achievers’ looks to be coming to an end. The tiny nation worked miracles to qualify for the last two major tournaments but they’ve now not won in nine attempts, and have conceded nine in their last two fixtures. The 3-0 home defeat to Belgium last time out gives us hope that we can land another big odds betting tip in this match, and the selection to complete this week’s France vs Iceland betting tips is going to be a 4-0 France win.
