Finland vs Iceland – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Finland are the bookmakers’ favourites to prevail in their friendly clash with Iceland at the Estadio Enrique Roca de Murcia. Read our top three predictions for this week’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Finland to Win

With just one win in their last ten matches, Iceland’s current crop is a pale imitation of the team that took the European Championship by storm back in 2016 and with several of their best players absent for Friday’s friendly with Finland, the islanders could be worth opposing in the markets. Finland have won two of their last three matches and they should have the edge in terms of confidence this week as a result.

Both Teams to Score

Finland have kept just four clean sheets in their last 15 assignments, while Iceland have shut out their opponents just three times in their last 15 tests. Neither defence could ever be considered reliable and bettors are advised to back both to concede in Friday’s friendly fixture in Murcia.

Teemu Pukki to Score Anytime

With 33 goals for his country, Norwich City striker Teemu Pukki is out on his own as the most potent marksman at international level in both squads. The Finnish talisman has scored three times in his last four appearances for his country and the 31-year-old has also notched twice in his last three runouts in the Premier League. Pukki should be the best player on show this week and he is worth backing to make an impact.

Finland vs Iceland Match Preview and Team News

Finland

Miro Tenho, Miska Ylitolva, Lucas Lingman and Mikael Soisalo will all be hoping to represent Iceland for the first time on Friday. In total, there are ten players in Markku Kanerva’s squad who have won ten or fewer caps, giving the Eagle-owls roster a fresh-feeling vibe.

Iceland

With Hannes Þór Halldórsson, Birkir Már Sævarsson, Ari Freyr Skúlason, Kári Árnason, Ragnar Sigurðsson all retired and Jóhann Berg Guðmundsson, Aron Gunnarsson and Kolbeinn Sigþórsson not available for differing reasons, Iceland’s squad suddenly looks short on experience, though several young players should get a chance to shine this week.
