Analysis of Republic of Ireland

The home team plays its first friendly match of the year, after having played 5 friendlies last year, with the following final scores: Republic of Ireland (4‑0) Oman, Republic of Ireland (1‑2) Belarus, Republic of Ireland (1‑1) Netherlands, Republic of Ireland (2‑2) Slovakia and Republic of Ireland (1‑0) Switzerland. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses in away matches, with 18 goals scored and 15 conceded; against 7 wins, 7 draws and 1 loss at their stadium, with 21 goals scored and 9 conceded. They come to this match after a home draw against Wales by (0‑0). Republic of Ireland has won 5, tied 4 and lost 1 of the last 10 home matches. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. Goals have been frequent in their home matches, as 6 of the last 14 have ended with Under 1,5 goals and 11 out of 14 have ended with Under 2,5 goals.

Republic of Ireland leaves for this match with a goalless draw against Wales, thus adding the sixth game followed without proving the taste of defeat. In this game against striking Iceland, Coach Martin O'Neill should keep his team 4-2-3-1 to benefit possession football and slow attacks: Hendrick will be largely responsible for creating and organizing the offensive process. It is important to note that the Irish have a good performance in their sectors, both the striker and the defender, having scored on average 1.4 goals and suffered on average 0.9 goals per game, this in the last 10 games. Murphy, Brady, Long and Hayes are the players who are in doubt for this game.

Confirmed Lineup: K. Westwood, C. Christie, A. Pearce, J. Egan, R. Brady, J. McClean, A. McGeady, C. Hourihane, J. Hayes, J. Hendrick, K. Doyle.

Analysis of Iceland

The away team plays its 2nd friendly match of the year, after having faced Mexico, in a friendly that ended with the final score: Mexico (1‑0) Iceland. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 2 draws and 8 losses in away matches, with 21 goals scored and 27 conceded; against 10 wins, 4 draws and 1 loss at their stadium, with 26 goals scored and 10 conceded. In their last match, for the WC Qualification Europe, they got an away win against Kosovo by (1‑2). In the last 10 away matches Iceland has won 4, tied 2 and lost 4. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 8 times but have turned the score around in 3.

Iceland is set for this match with a 2-0 victory over Kosovo, returning to the qualifying rounds of the 2018 FIFA World Cup: the triumphs were signed by Bjorn Sigurdarson and Gylfi Sigurdsson. In this away game, Coach Heimir Hallgrímsson plays in 4-4-2 favoring the low block and the long balls for the attack, especially for Sigurdarson. Looking back over the last 10 matches, it is possible to see that the Icelanders scored on average 1.6 goals and conceded an average of 1.4 goals per game, which means they have several gaps in the defensive sector. Without major absences to register, Iceland should enter the field at full strength.

Confirmed Lineup: Ö. Kristinsson, R. Sigurðsson, H. Magnússon, S. Ingason, B. Sævarsson, Ó. Skúlason, A. Gunnarsson, A. Sigurðarson, R. Gíslason, J. Böðvarsson, K. Finnbogason.

Betting suggestion:

This friendly has a strong tendency to be balanced, since the two sets present enormous competence in the offensive sector and arrive at this match with the moral in high. By playing at home it will be natural for Ireland to dominate and take advantage of the best opportunities to score goals, however, Iceland will take advantage of all the spaces offered by their opponents. Having said this, we believe in a very open game and with great show bids, making risking in favor of goals in this game is a good option. This betting suggestion has expired...
