Albania vs Iceland: Our top betting tips

This match up is a bit of a nothing game with neither Iceland or Albania able to progress from their group with relegation not a concern either. Will we see a game where both sides let loose? Find out with our Albania vs Iceland match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Expecting a draw

We begin our tips by backing the match to end all square and there is plenty of stats to back up such a prediction. Albania haven't won in their last five but have notably drawn three of those five. Iceland haven't lost in five but, again, have seen three of those matches end level. With the last clash between these nations ending in a draw and just one of the last seven being settled by more than a single goal a close fought encounter is really likely. The fact we can then incorporate the recent form for draws means this bet carries serious value!

A low scoring match awaits

Our next wager for this game sees us backing the match to fall under 2.5 goals. Albania have gone under that 2.5 marker in three of their past five matches whilst averaging just 1.6 goals per game in that period. Iceland meanwhile have also gone under the 2.5 threshold in three of their last five matches but with a 2.4 game average. When you combine that form with the fact two of the last three head to heads have also gone under 2.5 goals the odds look like a reasonably well priced offer.

A nothing game

There is absolutely nothing riding on this game other than personal pride; the fact it will define who finishes second in a Nations League group counts for very little and, in truth, neither side would see a victory over the other as a particularly noteworthy event so it's not even got that edge to it. The only positive we can spin is that with nothing on the line, we could see the teams throw away the ‘old ball and chain' and let loose to have a good game of football.

Albania haven't won a game in this Nations League and a home tie here is arguably a good chance for them to chalk up a win for their fans. A strong-ish line up is expected.

Albania Predicted lineup – Strakosha, Ajeti, Ismajli, Balliu, Hysaj, Laci, Abrashi, Asllani, Gjasula, Broja, Cikalleshi

Like their hosts, Iceland haven't won a match in this group and that will mean they'll want to try and bag three points to avoid that negative tone dragging on.

Iceland Predicted lineup – Runarsson, Palsson, Bjarnason, Magnusson, Olafsson, Sigurdsson, Haraldsson, Thorsteinsson, Gunnarsson, Thordarson, Finnbogason
