Iceland vs Romania Betting Tips

Looking to repeat their heroics of 2016, Iceland welcomes Romania to Reykjavik for a crunch Euro 2020 semi-final play-off with the winners of this tie scheduled to take on either Bulgaria or Hungary in November with the winners of that tie, guaranteed a place at next summer´s delayed competition. 

On paper, a tough fixture to call, Iceland are boosted by the return of Johann Gudmundsson, Gylfi Sigurdsson and captain Aron Gunnarsson who were all absent in the hosts' recent Nations League losses against heavyweights Belgium and England. 

However, the Icelandics will need an upturn in their recent form if they are to earn a place in November´s play-off final with Romania fresh from an impressive away win in Austria last month. 

With so much at stake, a goal-fest seems unlikely, but I do expect both sides to score in what looks set to be a close encounter between two evenly matched sides. Both teams to score is priced generously at 2:1. 

Romania has seen over 2.5 goals scored in 9 of their last 10 away fixtures, with the visitors only failing to score in 1 of their last 11 away fixtures (against Spain). Conversely, Iceland has seen under 2.5 goals scored in 7 of their last 9 home fixtures, and that outcome seems more likely to continue here given the importance of the fixture.

Ultimately, this is a hard tie to call, and I expect a low-scoring draw with extra-time and penalties possibly required to separate these two well-balanced sides. 

Iceland vs Romania Correct Score Prediction

A 1:1 draw seems possible here with both sides capable of scoring but ultimately reluctant to take too many risks with so much on the line.
