For this expert Nations League prediction, we’re heading north, as Iceland host England in Reykjavik on Saturday. Here at Betastic, we carefully analyse the facts and figures when coming up with our Nations League betting tips. Additionally, we’ve also kept a close eye on team news and both sides’ preparations.

The current constitution

IcelandIceland seek another shock result

Naturally, a major talking point going into this match will be Iceland’s shock win over England to eliminate them from Euro 2016 in the round of 16. However, that match was 4 years ago, and shouldn’t hasn’t influenced our Nations League prediction too much. Instead, the focus should be upon Iceland’s solid set up as a defensive unit. Iceland are undefeated in their last 5 games, having conceded only once in that time. Furthermore, they have only lost 2 of their last 9 games. This game will prove to be a tough test for Iceland, but they should have enough to make life difficult for England.

EnglandBuoyant young English squad eager to return

In their last 3 outings under Southgate, England scored 17 and conceded none, with all manner of strikers and midfielders getting their name on the scoresheet. The level of competition was, however, of a relatively low standard. More cautious England fans will be looking back to their 2-1 defeat to Czech Republic back in October of last year. Southgate has called up a number of new faces to the squad, most notably Jack Grealish and Conor Coady. Another factor that could affect the 3 Lions preparations is their early arrival in Reykjavik due to Iceland’s coronavirus restrictions.

Head to Head

We’ve already mentioned it above, but the one and only notable competitive meeting between these two international sides came back in Euro 2016, when Iceland shocked the world and dispatched England 2-1. This will still be on the minds of many members of the England squad, who will be out to exact some form of revenge against the minnows who humiliated them on the European stage. It is fair to say, however, that Southgate’s England are a far better team than they looked under Hodgson. However, Iceland’s defence could once again prove difficult even for England’s formidable attacking talent to unlock.

Our Betting Tip for Today

Having analysed all of the above information, our Nations League prediction for this week is for England to avoid another shock defeat and come out on top.

EnglandEngland to rid themselves of the ghost of 2016

You could say that the famous game in Euro 2016 acted as a catalyst for both sides. Iceland went on to prove it was no fluke by establishing themselves as a solid defensive unit that is capable of competing with anyone put in front of them. Meanwhile England have gone on to grow and flourish under a new manager, with Southgate leading them to a World Cup semi final two years later.

Essentially, this match will be a case of Iceland’s well organised unit trying to keep out England’s formidable attack for as long as possible, with the hopes they can hit them on the break. While it seems likely they’ll keep the score low, they won’t keep England out for the full 90 minutes. That’s why the best of our Nations League tips for this week is to back and England win + under 2.5 goals on odds of 2.68 with Paddy Power.
