Iceland is a strong team, it had a great playing form before the European Championship. Not to say it has performed poorly here, but the previous two games ended in a draw and now the squad has virtually no chance of going out. If anyone from the opposing pair, Italy and Belgium, wins and Iceland lose to France, they will not make the play-offs. The team is currently in second place. In the two matches played, it has earned two points, there have been two draws, both with scores of 1-1. It is worth noting that the squad pays a lot of attention to defense, it plays slow and viscous football. The last encounter he played on the fourteenth was a 1-1 draw against Italy.
France are one of the strongest teams in the world. At every tournament it makes the play-offs and often makes it to the finals, as they often did at the European Championships, but they always lose either to Germany or the Netherlands. At the moment the French team is in the first place in the group and it does not matter how the upcoming match against Iceland will be, or how Italy and Belgium will play, they will get 100% out of the first place. It is worth noting the statistics of France, in the two matches played they have scored seven goals and conceded 2, with 5 goals scored by the strong Italy. The team’s last encounter was on the fourteenth, in which they beat Belgium 2-1. The victory was not a convincing one, but there was a huge advantage over the opponent.
Statistics of head-to-head encounters
There have been plenty of face-to-face matches between France and Iceland, but they have only met twice recently, with the other encounters a decade or more ago. In 2017, France won 1-0 at the European Championships and in the last game, in a friendly in 2018, France won 4-0 at home.
Prediction and bet on the Iceland (women) vs France (women) match. Outcome with cf. 1,94
France has a great game form, the team has a series of seventeen wins in a row, this year has not yet lost. They have won most of their matches by huge margins over their opponents, even in this group they defeated strong Italy 5-1 in the first game. I don’t think that Iceland will be able to oppose anything today, so I suggest to bet on a confident win of France with -1.5 handicap, although the match is not important for it, there is too big difference in individual skills between the teams.
Prediction: Handicap 2 (-1.5).
