North Macedonia to bag historic win

North Macedonia are in good shape at the moment having lost just one of the last five games; the other four games are evenly split as two wins and two draws. Iceland hold a similar record over the last five – albeit they've drawn three and lost one. The big difference is that Iceland's away form isn't all that impressive; they've won two of five games on the road but they both came against the whipping boys of European football – Faroe Islands and Liechtenstein. Given home advantage, the fact they're off a massive midweek win and that a place in the playoffs is at stake we think North Macedonia get the job done.

Don't expect many goals

Our next tip for this game is in the both teams to score market and we don't see both sides scoring. North Macedonia have seen each of their last four games end with at least one side failing to score. Iceland have seen just two of their last five end with goals at both ends too. On top of that recent form, you have the head to head record to consider as well; three of the last four meetings between the teams have ended with a nil in the score line. We see that happening again here.

Bardhi to net again

Our final tip for this game is for North Macedonia man Enis Bardhi to score at some point. Bardhi, who plays his domestic football for La Liga side Levante, will be buzzing in the build up to this game after netting a hat-trick in his nations 5-0 away win over Armenia on Wednesday. That takes his qualifying tally to a team high four goals. On top of that, prior to the international break he had scored two in three games for his club. If he scores again he'll be forever held a hero in his homeland given what a win will mean for North Macedonia.

North Macedonia vs Iceland: Matchday preview

North Macedonia are on the brink of national history with a win guaranteed to book them a spot in the World Cup playoffs. Our scorer tip Enis Bardhi is one key player for the hosts but he's not the only one to watch; Eljif Elmas of Napoli is another. As for Iceland, they'll be really disappointed with how their qualification campaign has gone. They've lacked in both boxes and will want to put in a good display here in the final group game. As for their players, Andri Gudjohnsen is a player to keep an eye on. The 19-year-old is part of Real Madrid's youth setup.
