Iceland vs Armenia – Iceland to win

Much more was expected from Iceland going into these qualifiers, as they seemed to be a nation that gets better with every year. However, they have been desperate so far in the qualifiers, securing just 4 points on the way.

They will face an inspired Armenia side who sits second in the table, just behind Germany, so this game is of the utmost importance to both nations. Iceland need to win to keep their hopes of a place in the World Cup alive, and Armenia does not have a lot of room for error as well. This game can go either way, but we back Iceland to secure a home win and make things even more interesting in the group.

Score Prediction: Iceland 1-0 Armenia (11/10 with bet365)

Betting Tip: Iceland to win (11/10 with bet365)


Lichtenstein vs North Macedonia

Another game in group J looks very promising due to its importance, primarily to the Macedonians. They secured their first-ever Euro campaign in the summer, and they will be hungry for even more.

North Macedonia sits just 2 points behind second-placed Armenia, so the outcome in this group will probably not be decided until the final matchday. Lichtenstein have just one point on their tally so far, so it is clear who are the favourites here. We expect a comfortable away win.

Score Prediction: Lichtenstein 0-3 North Macedonia (9/2 with bet365)

Betting Tip: North Macedonia to win -to nil (8/15 with bet365)


Germany vs Romania

After a shaky start in their World Cup qualifying journey, the Germans seem they are back on track and they look like their old self – relentless and unstoppable. They sit comfortably in the first place of Group J, and a win here will all but secure their ticket to Qatar.

Romania are not a naïve side, they have every chance of progressing from the group, and they will give Germany a game for sure. The home advantage will be key here, so we expect a routine win for Germany.

Score Prediction: Germany 3-0 Romania (11/2 with bet365)

Betting Tip: Germany to score over 2.5 goals (8/13 with bet365)


Russia vs Slovakia

Group H is among the most interesting ones as all nations in it seem to be of similar quality. Russia sit joint-top of the group with Croatia, and a win against Slovakia will give them a much-needed boost of their chances of securing a place in the World Cup.

However, Slovakia will not be an easy obstacle to overcome, as they proved in the first match between these two back in March when they secured a 2-1 win against the Russians. This will be a completely different game, and we expect the Russians to secure the three points.

Score Prediction: Russia 2-0 Slovakia (7/1 with bet365)

Betting Tip: Russia to win (4/5 with bet365)


Turkey vs Norway

The game that many football supporters are looking forward to, as Turkey seem to be rising to the top, even though they had a disappointing Euro campaign in the summer. They have a young squad, so they are one nation that needs keeping an eye on in the near future.

Norway are in a similar position, led by the superstar Erling Haaland, they will be full of confidence they can secure a place in Qatar. This game is very difficult to predict, and it can go either way, so we think that both teams will have to settle for a draw.

Score Prediction: Turkey 1-1 Norway (11/2 with bet365)

Betting Tip: Both teams to score (7/10 with bet365)
