Albania vs Iceland Match Preview
Iceland beat Moldova (3-0) in an overpowering home display to connect their third win in a row as they keep up with pace-setters France and 2nd placed Turkey in an exciting race for the top 2 spots, where the three sides all have 12 points to their name and Erik Hamren’s sit behind only for their goal difference.
Strakarnir Okkar have been confident and we’ve seen them earn narrow June wins over Albania (1-0) and Turkey (2-1) in front of the home crowd, but they still have a lot to prove late in the campaign. They will want to build on high-scoring performances in Elbasan, though, and we expect them very motivated to impress.
Albania have, on the other hand, bagged a comfortable win over Moldova (2-0) of their own back in June but they’ve seen a thrashing 4-1 loss in France over the weekend, where Sokol Cikalleshi’s last-minute penalty-kick goal came as nothing more than a consolation. They will now need to bounce quickly and Edoardo Reja has work to do.
Red and Blacks have been tougher to beat in front of the home fans and they will hope they can show off such a character now too. They’ve struggled to do so against Iceland in head-to-head clashes, though, and this could prove worrying for the crowd at Elbasan Arena ahead of the Tuesday’s contest as well.
We do feel Iceland will have what it takes to snatch the points once again but we expect a more exciting clash between the sides on the day, as we now back the visitors at 7/5 with Ladbrokes and hope to see them outgun the rivals in a thriller.
With that in mind, we hope to see goals on both ends as we’re backing Over 2.5 Goals FT at 29/20 with Unibet. We’ve seen both sides in such clashes over the weekend and we now hope we’ll see more of the same, as both have to go all-out for the points here.
