Iceland and North Macedonia to Draw

The two tiny nations have had some respectable results in recent years and they have the similar quality, so we expect to see a very close game. The guests are in much better form at the moment but the home team is still the favourite according to bookies. We can see this game going either way, which is why a draw seems like the most logical outcome to us.

Iceland and North Macedonia to Draw at Half Time

Since we expect the game to end in a draw, we also expect the teams to be equal at half time. After all, that’s the most common half-time result for matches that end in a draw. Our prediction is also based on the fact that we don’t expect to see many goals in this game, so we can see the teams going scoreless in the first half.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

While we don’t expect to see too many goals in this match, we do expect to see both teams netting at least one goal each. After all, both teams have scored in three of the last five matches played by Iceland in all competitions, while the same is true for two of the last five Macedonia games.

Iceland vs North Macedonia preview: A very close matchup

These two teams have similar quality and we should see a very exciting duel. So, let’s take a look at the teams in more detail ahead of their upcoming game:

Iceland

The small Scandinavian island went through a bit of a football revolution at the start of the last decade and the results quickly followed after Iceland reached the main stage at both the World Cup and European Championship for the first time in their history. However, the team failed to qualify for Euro 2020 and they are not on good course for making it to Qatar either since they started the qualifiers with one win and three losses.

North Macedonia

After they played at the European Championship for the first time as an independent nation this summer, North Macedonia is going strong in these WC Qualifiers as well. After the first four rounds, the team has seven points and they are currently in the third place in their group, behind Armenia and Germany. In any case, the team has every right to hope for at least an appearance in the playoffs based on their most recent form and results.
