Iceland – Belgium betting tips for today, September 11, 2018.
Football: UEFA Nations League – League A
Tip: Away Win
Match Result: 0:3 WON!!!
|Iceland entertain Belgium in League A, Group 2 of the new UEFA Nations League (UNL), and will be searching for their first ever win against against the side that finished third at the summer’s World Cup (WC).|
|Unfortunately for Iceland, they are already in serious danger of relegation to League B after a dismal showing against Switzerland. They managed just one shot on target in a 6-0 loss, with that result equalling their heaviest reverse in a competitive match since October 2001.|
|The Iceland team is now a shadow of the one that famously knocked England out of Euro 2016. That loss to Switzerland extended Iceland’s current winless run to eight matches (D2, L6), with that sequence including a defeat to League C side Norway.|
|This is Belgium’s first UNL match but the ‘Red Devils’ prepared for their UNL campaign in style, with a clinical 4-0 win in Scotland. That win forms part of a great run for Belgium that has seen them lose just once (in the WC semi) in 27 games (W21, D5, L1).|
|The two nations have met nine times – last back in 2014 – with Belgium winning on every single occasion!|
|Players to watch: Jón Dadi Bödvarsson (Iceland) brings solid club form into the UNL, with three goals and a ‘Man of the Match’ award from four starts for Reading this season.|
|Including both international and club games, Eden Hazard (Belgium) has registered six goals and three assists in his last ten matches.|
|Stat attack: Belgium are unbeaten in their last nine away matches (D2, L7).|
|Iceland have scored two or more goals in ten of their last 12 home matches, including friendlies.|
|Belgium have won five of their last six opening matches at qualifying tournaments and finals.|
