Out of form Iceland opposable in Yerevan
Iceland bid to get their Group J campaign up and running and end a six game losing streak when they take on Armenia this weekend, but we think that Arnar Vidarsson’s side could fall short in Yerevan.
The visitors’ poor recent form can largely be attributed to the standard of opposition which they have faced – and the majority of the eight defeats they’ve suffered in nine came in a hot UEFA Nations League section containing England, Belgium and Denmark, towards the end of last year.
Nonetheless, this current Iceland outfit is clearly not the force which we saw making such an impact at Euro 2016 and in the 2018 World Cup and they could struggle this Sunday after their comprehensive 3-0 beating at the hands of Germany in midweek.
While Armenia are ranking 53 places inferior to their opposition and have largely been taking the scalps of minnows in recent months, they are unbeaten in six and have won their last three.
Joaquin Caparros’ charges are also capable of shaking up the more established nations at home such as when beating Bosnia in Yerevan during the Euro 2020 Qualifiers and we’re backing them in the double chance market here along with a 1-1 correct score.
