Iceland welcomes Moldova
Iceland welcomes Moldova in a match from the European qualifications from Group H. The Vikings are strong favourites to take the win in their capital Reykjavik. Let’s take a look in our free football betting tips for the weekend.
Iceland started the qualifying campaign strong, winning three times and losing just once against the world champion France. RIght now they are third in the group with 9 points, being on par with the first two teams in the group – France and Turkey. They also have the same amount of games as them, so for the Vikings the chances of qualifying for the next Euro are pretty solid.
In their last game in the group Iceland hosted Turkey and achieved a very important 2-1 win at home. The hosts scored twice between the 21th and the 31th minutes, when Rostov’s Ragnar Sigurdhsson put the ball twice in Mert Gunok’s net. Five minutes before the half time Dorukhan Tokoz scored for the Turkish side, but Iceland’s defense didn’t break again in the second half.
As for Moldova, they are currently fifth in the group with 3 points won and a record of one win and three losses. In their previous game Moldova travelled to Elbasan to face Albania and suffered a 0-2 defeat. Alexandru Spiridon’s boys tried as much as they can to create something on the pitch, but Albania secured the win with goals from Sokol Cikalleshi and Ylber Ramadani.
There’s no doubt that Iceland are a huge favourite to beat Moldova, especially at home. The Vikings are enjoying a spectacular progress in football in the last few years, participating at two big tournaments in a row. The fight for qualification with France and Turkey is going to be rough, so Iceland need to win games like this one at any cost. And in our free football betting tips for the weekend we expect to see them doing it.
