Iceland’s national team last year at the last moment missed a ticket to Euro 2020 in a dramatic match with the Hungarians. After that, the national team was led by local specialist Arnar Vidarsson, who started a partial generation change in the team.
In the current qualifying round, the Icelanders will hardly be able to compete for the exit from the group. In five games played, the northerners scored only four points. In September, they lost to the Romanians (0: 2), and then miraculously saved the home game with North Macedonia (2: 2). Note that the second goal was scored by the substitute 19-year-old striker Andri Gudjohnsen (son of Eidur Gudjohnsen, who plays for Real Madrid Castilla).
The German national team, in turn, is beginning to get used to the demands of Hans-Dieter Flick. In the September matches against Liechtenstein and Armenia, the former Bayern coach applied a massive roster rotation. His team won both times 2: 0 and 6: 0 respectively. In the game against the leaders of the Armenian group in Stuttgart, even the winger Leroy Sane looked bright, who so far cannot find his game in the Munich superclub. His teammate Serge Gnabry was also very good.

The Germans are now re-mastering the science of domination on the field and the almost continuous high pressure on this is the football of their new head coach. However, even under Joachim Loew in the spring, Germany beat Iceland 3: 0.
Honestly, I do not see the northerners have any practical chances of success in the upcoming game. The current Icelandic team plays very unstable, both in terms of physical fitness and tactical literacy. I’ll bet on guests with a handicap of -1.5 goals for 1.69.
