Reason For Iceland vs Romania Predictions

  • Under 2.5 goals hit the net in seven of Iceland’s last nine home matches.
  • Iceland won three of their last four home games to nil.
  • Iceland scored exactly one goal in 50% of their last six home victories.

Tense contest anticipated in Iceland

Iceland were butchered 5-1 by Belgium in their last international outing back in September, in a hammering that was out of sync with a run of robust defensive performances before it.

Erik Hamrén’ side conceded one or fewer goals in 10 of their last 11 fixtures before their mauling in Brussels last month, however, while their defending has been good, their lack of thrust at the other end continues to be a problem.

As a result of Iceland’s poor attacking output, under 2.5 goals hit the net in seven of their last nine assignments at home and in seven of their last 12 matches overall, and we expect their play-off test against Romania to be similarly low on action.

The Romanians scored more than twice in game just six times in their last 25 international fixtures, and half of those meaty hauls were plundered in meetings with minnows the Faroe Islands (twice) and Malta.

With the low-scoring factors aligned, the under 2.5 goals market looks your best bet again for Thursday’s game between two sides lacking final third quality, while our correct score prediction backs Iceland to eventually eke out a 1-0 triumph.

The Strákarnir okkar won three of their last four matches at home to nil, scoring exactly once in two of those contests, and another 1-0 triumph looks on here.
