We expect Turkey to win 2-0 at 8.50 with bet365
It’s a huge match for both teams, as realistically only one of them – at most – can qualify for the World Cup. Turkey will have a partizan crowd behind them as always cheering them on to Russia 2018.
However, Iceland have been known to cause shocks before, as England know only so well. They also dominate the head-to-head record between the two sides with six wins from 10.
They lead the way in I alongside Croatia, two points ahead of the Turks. Should they win they will all but end the home side’s hopes of qualification.
All the pressure is on Turkey, and we think they will rise to the occasion and get the win they need. You can back them to win 2-0 at 8.50 with bet365.
Iceland are excellent at home but have struggled on the road, and the red-hot atmosphere in Eskisehir could get to them. The Turkish fans are amongst the most passionate in world football.
Burak Yilmaz looks a good bet to score first at 5.0 with Unibet. The 32 year-old has started the season brilliantly with Trabzonspor and will want to continue that form for his country.
Iceland host Turkey at the New Eskisehir Stadium in Eskisehir on Friday night. Didier Deschamps’ team were 4-1 winners in the reverse fixture in Paris last year.
Mircea Lucescu’s team are third in the group, and can overtake Iceland in second with a win. Direct qualification to the World Cup is still possible, although September’s loss to Ukraine could prove costly.
Turkey Form: WLWDWW
Iceland are joint top of the group alongside Croatia on 16 points. A win in Turkey would see them take a huge step towards the World Cup, although they have only won once there back in 1980.
Iceland Form: WLWWWL
Iceland have the significant edge from the two nations previous meetings, with 6 wins and only two losses. They were 2-0 winners in the reverse fixture in Reykjavik a year ago.
