Today match predictions for Albania vs Iceland
Albania face Iceland in the EC Qualification Round 6 match. The match will be played on Tuesday, September 10 from 7:45 pm UK at Elbasan Arena.
Albania had a minor chance of being in the group with the strong teams of France, Turkey and their upcoming rival Iceland, which would not allow them to fight for one of the first two places in the group. It all started with a 2-0 loss to Stadiumi Loro Boriçi from Turkey and then they won Andorra 3-0 away but lost to Iceland in the third round with Reykjavík 1-0 after Johann Guðmundsson’s goal. This loss was followed by a 2-0 win over Moldova, but a few days ago they completely lost again when they visited the Stade de France in Paris by host France 4:1 as the visitors’ honorable goal came in the 90th minute from a penalty shootout. scored Sokol Cikalleshi. So after 5 games they have an asset of 6 points and occupy the 4th position leaving behind 6 points from both France and Turkey and Iceland as each of these teams has 12 points each and the fight for the first two places in the group will be up to itself the end.
Iceland were able to defeat all but France by losing their visit to Paris 4-0. Otherwise their victories were against Andorra away from home with 2:0, as we already said with 1:0 at home against Albania, and in the fourth round also at their stadium Laugardalsvöllur handled Turkey with 2:1, as for this their victory great credit goes to Rostov’s Ragnar Sigurðsson, who scored both goals for his team. A few days ago, Moldova lost 3-0 to their visit to Reykjavík.
Although they have no chance to move on to EURO 2020 Albania, they can play a key role in the group as if they manage to score at home against Iceland, this would be a huge advantage for France and Turkey. The two teams were in the WC Qualification 2012-13 group as Iceland recorded 2 wins against their opponent, as I think the scenario will be repeated and the team led by Erik Hamrén will take the three points and continue his fight for one of the first two places by himself the end.
