Belgium vs Iceland Prediction & Betting tips
If you list the big favorites for winning the Euro 2020, you can’t get past the red devils from Belgium. This great generation of Belgians does not have many attempts to win a major title. However, Roberto Martinez’s team seems to have reached the peak of their creativity.
For the Belgians, the Nations League is only a stopover, but they impressively prove that this team is one of the best teams in the world. Therefore, a prediction of a home win between Belgium and Iceland on Tuesday is only the logical consequence.
The Belgians lead the table of the Nations League after a victory in Denmark. However, the hottest competition from England is tied with a win in Iceland. The Danes and Icelanders have not yet scored any points on matchday one. With another success of the red devils, the showdown games against the English for group victory are getting closer.
The best bookmakers with their odds leave little doubt that Roberto Martinez’s team will win on Tuesday. However, the islanders are no longer the football dwarf they once were. Nevertheless, there is no way around placing a tip on a home win between Belgium and Iceland.
The Belgians currently seem to be able to fall back on an almost inexhaustible reservoir of outstanding players. Most of the players in the Belgian team are signed to the best clubs in the world. 25 to 30 actors can be given at least the rating “upper international class”. However, many Belgians are also absolutely world class.
The results reflect this assessment exactly, because the Belgians have all won the last eleven international matches. In the meantime, the Spanish coach has even told them to play results-oriented. That makes the red devils so dangerous at the moment and that’s why we tend to use the odds for a home win between Belgium and Iceland.
Last Saturday the Belgians showed a mature performance in Denmark and won a 2-0 victory that was never in danger of being in danger.
Jason Denayer scored the 1-0 lead after just nine minutes. After that, however, it took until the 76th minute before Dries Mertens made everything clear with the 2-0.
Kevin de Bruyne did not take part because he was there when his child was born. The top star from Manchester will now join the team again. Thibaut Courtois, Michy Batshuayi, Dedrick Boyata, Nacer Chadli or Divock Origi will be missing. Yannick Ferrera-Carrasaco has also already left.
The Icelandic players as such are, with few exceptions, as individuals, certainly not at the highest level of European football. But when you see how these players work as a team, then you have to take your hat off because the Northmen make life difficult for every opponent.
Like so many other teams, the Nations League is just good preparation for the Icelanders. The focus is still clearly on the playoffs for EURO 2021, where Iceland competes with Romania, Hungary and Bulgaria for a ticket for the EM. With only one defeat in the last six international matches, one can speak of a very good form.
In addition, the defeat against England on Saturday was extremely bitter. For a long time the Northmen were at eye level. From the 70th minute on it went quickly. Expulsion for England, 1-0 for England with a penalty and traffic light card for Iceland. In addition, the missed penalty by the Icelanders in the third minute of stoppage time.
A point against the Three Lions would have been deserved. The Icelanders lack numerous important actors. Sverrir Ingi Ingasson is blocked and not available in Belgium. In addition, Kari Arnason, Birkir Mae Marssonden, Ragnar Sigurdsson, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Aron Gunnarsson, Kolbeinn Sigthorsson or Alfred Finnbogason are not in the squad. It is not too difficult to forecast a defeat for the islanders between Belgium and Iceland.
