Betting tips for Iceland VS Romania 08.10.2020
The 1-0 defeat in their last Euro Cup qualifying match at home also continued a recent trend, with five of their last six official home matches having only had one team touchdowns (G4, P2). In addition, in each of Iceland's last 12 official home games, the team that opens the scoring keeps the three points.
Romania's away side face this clash after beating Austria (# 24) 3-2 in their last match at UNL, marking their best performance since a 1-0 win against Greece six years ago in qualifying for Euro 2016. A good start could be in the odds, as each of Romania's last four official matches have witnessed at least one goal in the first 30 minutes.
Goals were a common theme in Romania's official away games lately, with all but one of their last nine away games producing more than 2.5 goals in total. This match could deliver a show in the final minutes as exactly 2.0 goals have been scored (on average) from minute 60 onwards in each of Romania's last five official matches.
Players to watch: Kolbeinn Sigþórsson has scored six goals in Iceland's last 11 home games in the Euro Qualifiers - three of them scored before half-time.
Meanwhile, Romanian forward George Pușcaș has scored the first goal of the game in each of the last four international matches in which he has seen an opponent's goal.
Highlight: Iceland, usually strong from the start of the home game, have only conceded one goal in the first half in their last 12 official matches on home soil.
