Welcome to our Germany vs Iceland betting tips, prediction and odds analysis ahead of their 2022 World Cup Group J game at the MSV Arena on Thursday.
After their 2018 World Cup disaster which saw them eliminated in the group stage, Germany will be hungry to secure 2022 World Cup qualification in fine fashion.
They will be the firm favourites to win this game but could face stiff competition from Iceland who can be a good side on their good days.
Head To Head Stats
The teams last met in October 2003 in a Euro 2004 qualifier and Germany won 3-0.
Germany have won three out of their four games against Iceland, with the other ending in a draw.
Iceland have never beaten Germany.
Latest Germany results
Germany’s last outing was a UEFA Nations League game against Spain in November and they lost 6-0.
Germany have played out to three draws, two wins and one loss in their last six competitive games.
Germany have conceded 12 goals in their last four competitive games.
Latest Iceland results
Iceland were last in action against England last November in a UEFA Nations League game and they lost 4-0.
Iceland have lost their last five competitive games.
The last time that Iceland won was in a 2-1 European Championship qualifier against.
Both countries enter the game with their recent form being less than ideal. Germany do enter the game in slightly better form even though they were thrashed 6-0 by Spain in their last game. Overall, Germany will have home advantage and a better squad on paper. I expect them to win 2-0.
Anytime goal scorers
Germany- Serge Gnabry. Gnabry has proven to be prolific at international level, having scored 14 goals so far from 17 games for Germany. If he starts, he will cause plenty of problems for the Icelandic defence and will be looking to add more goals to his international tally.
Iceland- Gylfi Sigurðsson. Iceland have less quality than Germany on paper so they will have to strategize carefully if they want to beat their opponents. Sigurðsson has proven to be an adept player in the Premier League with good football intelligence. If Iceland are to frustrate Germany, he will have to be in good form.
Our Odds and Tips In Detail
In lieu of Iceland’s recent poor run of form and Germany’s home advantage, it’s hard to see Iceland leaving the match with anything. I expect a comfortable 2-0 win for Germany.
Best bet: Under 3.5 and Germany (Sunbet-odd-1.74)
