Iceland have lost all six of their previous Nations League encounters and the manner of their 5-1 mauling at Belgium in September suggests another tough test is in store at home to Denmark.
Prior to that, Iceland registered just two shots – none of which were on target – in a limp 1-0 loss at home to England, who were restricted to ten men with 20 minutes left to play.
England were nowhere near full-strength – their midfield was severely depleted – and they were considerably below their best, so it is of some concern that they failed to force a save from a vulnerable Jordan Pickford.
Denmark have won each of the last seven meetings between the pair and they look a good bet to maintain their dominance.
The Danes held England to a goalless draw after the Three Lions toppled Iceland and they had the better of the argument, winning the shots statistics 11-6.
Both teams have scored in only one of Denmark’s six previous Nations League fixtures and given Iceland’s lack of firepower – they have failed to score in three of their last six competitive matches – we are predicting an away clean sheet.
Denmark have conceded only once in the last six meetings with Iceland. We predict the Danes to prevail, with the 1-0 favoured scoreline. Two of Iceland’s last three defeats have been by that margin.
