Iceland vs Moldova Match Preview
Iceland have revived their Euro 2020 qualification hopes back on home soil, where they are usually so strong, and are expected to win comfortably when they face Moldova on Saturday.
The Euro 2016 quarter-finalists, who also contested last year’s World Cup, suffered a big drop-off in results as they went 14 matches without a win and lost four out of four in their UEFA Nations League group against Belgium and Switzerland.
But despite a 4-0 beating in France, the North Atlantic side have otherwise made a strong start to their European Championship campaign and won their other three games so far to be matching strides with the world champions and Turkey at the top of the Group H table.
That should remain the case on Saturday as all three of the joint leaders are at home to the group makeweights and it would be a huge shock if Iceland surrendered their record of being unbeaten in Reykjavik in major tournament qualifying fixtures since 2013.
Moldova are ranked way down at No 171 in the world by FIFA and although they have beaten Andorra narrowly in this campaign, they are not expected to collect points against any of their other rivals.
It will probably be the head-to-head results between the ‘big three’ that determine which two of them advance to next summer’s tournament from this pool and in the meantime, Iceland should enjoy a straightforward success to set them up for Tuesday’s trip to Albania.
