The Turkish national team beats the reigning world champion France 2: 0! Throughout Turkey, the impressive victory of the Turkish selection was highly praised, and after the tense political situation, the media was now shaped by the sporting sensation of the football team.
Football Betting Prediction Iceland vs Turkey
With Senol Günes Turkey is back to its old strength and benefits from the strong youth. With three wins from the first three qualifiers, the “Ay Yildizlilar” have conquered the group leadership. An away win for the Icelanders would be a giant step in the direction of Euro 2020. Will an Iceland pay off against Turkey’s tip on the visitors?
Bookmakers’ odds are still fluctuating, but Iceland vs. Turkey slightly favored the guests according to odds. Turkey’s home win over France mean that they are well placed to qualify for the European Championship in 2020. The Icelanders have lost their qualifier against France, but are still in good shape with six points in their favor.
With a home win over Turkey, Iceland can draw on points. After the weak performance against Albania, it remains to be seen whether an Iceland against Turkey prediction on the home team is true.
After the historical entry into the European Championship 2016 in France, the Icelanders last year made the next sensation perfect and participated in the 2018 World Cup in Russia. In recent years, Iceland has improved significantly in terms of performance and wants to be present in the coming competition. With six points after the first three games, it does not look too bad for the Icelanders.
After the catastrophic Nations League performance, it was not clear what the Icelanders would be in the European Championship qualifier. In the new UEFA competition, Iceland finished in a group with Belgium and Switzerland with a score of 0-0-4 with a weak goal ratio of 1:13. Whether the Icelanders will make it to the European Championships in 2020 depends, among other things, on the home game against Turkey.
The Icelanders, unlike the Turks, have lost against France and want to equalize with a home win over Turkey on points. A defeat at home would put the Icelanders in an awkward position, especially since the Turks are in a very strong condition. In the recent home victory over Albania, the Icelanders did not show a solid performance and were happy after the numerous missed chances of the opponent over the three points.
In the current squad of Icelanders Gylfi Sigurdsson is the most valuable player in the squad. Burnley FC striker Gudmundsson scored the crucial winner against the Albanian side. In their own defensive, there were many problems recently, which has also influenced the offensive game Icelanders ultimately significantly. Even at the home game against Albania, the problems became noticeable.
Coach Erik Hamren will have to find a solution. Otherwise, it could be tight against the strong playing Turkish offensive. Since the World Cup 2018 and the departure of former coach Hallgrimsson it is not really around the Icelanders. Only two internationals have been won since the departure of Hallgrimsson. If the home game against Turkey is lost, there would be a big setback in the race for the qualification for the European Championship.
Expected formation of Iceland:
➤ Halldorsson – Skulason, Sigurdsson, Arnason, Hermansson – Sigurjonsson, Gunnarsson, Bjarnason, Gudmunsson – Sigurdsson, Kjartansson

Is Turkey a fluke or are the Turks under Senol Günes back to their old strength? Many ask about the strong performance of the Turkish selection against the reigning World Champion France. Since the involvement of Senol Günes it is back around in the Turkish national team. Günes, who has already won the historic third place at the 2002 World Cup with Turkey, wants to bring the national team back on track.
All internationals under coach Günes have been won so far. With three wins in the first three qualifiers, Turkey is leading Group H. With an away win in Iceland, the Turks would take a giant step towards Euro 2020. Before the important qualifying match against Iceland, Turkey experienced a real scandal on entry. According to media reports (Hürriyet), the unacceptable control conditions created unsightly scenes at the airport.
However, Senol Günes does not want to be influenced by the incidents and give his team the answer on the pitch. So far, the Turkish team have won all qualifying matches without conceding a single goal. Even the French have made heavy against the defensive of the Turks. Not a single shot on goal gave off the strong offensive of the reigning world champion.
If Turkey also presents itself so strongly against Iceland, nothing stands in the way of the fourth victory in the fourth qualifying match. In the young, dynamic offensive of Turkey, France was already having a tough time. Numerous offensive options are available to Günes at any time. In addition to players such as Ünder and Karaman on the wings, the Turkish coach can also at any time on players like Özyakup, Calhanoglu, Yazici or Ömür fall back.
After the show against France, it remains to be seen if Günes will really make any changes in the starting lineup. If the Turks use the wings again so effectively and play powerfully, against Iceland the first goal will remain only a matter of time. An Iceland vs. Turkey tip on the “Ay-Yildizlilar” is rewarded with odds of 2.50.
Expected formation of Turkey:
➤ Günok – Kaldirim, Ayhan, Demiral, Celik – Tekdemir – Karaman, Toköz, Kahveci, Ünder – Yilmaz
