Iceland vs France Prediction, Preview and Betting Tips

This will be a crucial clash for both teams as they aim to book a spot in next year’s continental showpiece. The World champions are aiming to follow up a run of 5 wins in 6 games, which has put them inside the top 2 in the chase for a spot at the next major tournament. Having made back to back finals at Euro 2016 and their victorious World Cup run, it would be a major upset if the French failed to secure automatic qualification in Group H.

Iceland are the team playing catch up, with 3 points between them and 2nd placed France who are behind Turkey on goal difference. The hosts are pushing for a top-two finish, having pulled off a 2-1 victory at home to Turkey earlier in the qualifying campaign. Their 4-2 defeat at Albania really hurt their chances and another defeat here would see them fall behind both Turkey and France by 6 points if Turkey manage to beat Albania in the other group game.
