A struggling Iceland welcome Group J leaders Germany to Laugardalsvollur in Reykjavik for their final September World Cup qualification fixture.
Iceland have picked up four points so far in Group J, having beaten bottom team Liechtenstein 1-4 and drawn 2-2 with North Macedonia. As a result of a 0-2 loss to Romania, a 2-0 loss to Armenia and a 3-0 loss to Germany, Iceland are second from bottom in this World Cup qualification group.
It’s also an uphill battle for Iceland in their remaining fixtures, currently sitting 6 points behind second-placed Armenia. They won’t necessarily have to beat Germany, but they will need to pick up wins against the likes of Armenia and Romania to catch up.
Germany have won four of their five Group J World Cup qualifiers so far, including a recent 6-0 win over second-placed Armenia. Germany did however lose 1-2 to North Macedonia at the end of March after Napoli’s Elif Elmas scored an 85th-minute winner.
Germany are only three points above third-placed Romania and so they’ll need a few more wins from their last five fixtures to secure qualification, which as you’d expect is very likely.
Head to head, Iceland and Germany have faced each other three times in competitive circumstances, with Germany winning 3-0 during this campaign, 3-0 in October 2003, and the match a month before that finishing in a 0-0 draw at Laugardalsvollur.
Odds For Iceland v Germany
You probably don’t need us to tell you that Germany are the very strong favourites heading into this fixture between Iceland and Germany on Wednesday evening.
As things stand, you can get odds of around 1/5 for a Germany victory, odds of around 11/2 for the match to end in a draw, and odds of around 12/1 for an Iceland upset.
Iceland have scored in five of their six last matches, meaning increasing your odds with the ‘match result and both teams to score’ market could be a very good option. The current odds for this are 15/8 in Germany’s favour, 15/2 for a both score draw, or around 18/1 for Iceland to follow in the footsteps of North Macedonia.
With the qualifying teams in most groups still being uncertain, it’s a very good time to place your bets on who you think could win the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Here are the current live odds for that market:
