Iceland vs Romania predictions for this World Cup Qualification on Thursday at Laugardalsvöllur. This is an important battle in cold northern Europe, as both teams need to win to move back to the top of the group, but who will be able to take all three points. Read on for our free predictions and betting tips.

Iceland

After losing to the Germans and the Armenians, the Icelanders won their third match 4-1 against Liechtenstein. The Icelanders have to win this match if they want to stay in contention.

After that incredible Euro 2016 in which the Icelanders amazed and captivated the whole world with their grit and fight, the Icelanders have struggled to build on that momentum, and in the last three years they have suffered a significant drop in terms of sporting results.

In the last meeting between the two countries, Iceland won 2-1 in October 2020.

Romania

Romania come into this match on the back of a win over North Macedonia and two defeats, to Germany and Armenia.

The Romanians’ objective before the start of the qualifiers would have been to finish second in the group, but their performances so far mean that this will be a tough challenge.

Key Stats:

  • Two wins, one draw, and two defeats for Iceland in their last five games
  • Iceland have conceded six goals in their last five games
  • Four consecutive defeats for Romania
  • Romania have conceded nine goals in their last five games

Iceland vs Romania Predictions

At first glance, the two teams seem to be of a similar overall level, but looking at the performances of the two in their respective previous matches and Romania seem to have the edge. Neither team are at their best, but Romania have been more competitive and their recent defeats have been by narrow margins. Therefore, we think that Romania could win this match.
