Kick Off: 2100, 07/06/2018
Iceland have struggled a bit in World Cup warm-up matches and may be content to steady the ship by drawing with Ghana in Reykjavik.
The Nordic outfit have lost to Mexico, Peru and Norway in the build-up to Russia 2018, so avoiding another defeat will be the first target here.
We’re kicking off our Iceland vs Ghana betting tips by taking 11/5 for the scores to finish level in this international friendly.
A Look At Iceland’s Betting Odds
Iceland made a huge impression at Euro 2016, advancing from their pool after two draws and a win before beating England at the last-16 stage.
Our Boys again upset the odds when qualifying for Russia 2018, with seven wins from 10 games helping to eclipse Croatia for top spot in Group I.
Team spirit outweighs talent in Heimir Hallgrimsson’s side, but they do have some useful players to call on.
Everton midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson scored in Saturday’s 3-2 loss to Norway at this venue, along with Alfred Finnbogason, who had a solid season with Augsburg in Germany.
A Look At Ghana’s Betting Odds
Ghana missed out on a trip to the World Cup after finishing third behind Egypt and Uganda in their qualifying group.
Former player Akwasi Appiah is now back in charge, having led the Black Stars to Brazil 2014 during his first stint.
Christian Atsu and Asamoah Gyan are among the big names rested for this match, but there is still a decent blend of youth and experience.
Wakaso Mubarak of Alaves, Torino’s Afriyie Acquah and Albert Adomah of Aston Villa are all proven performers in midfield.
Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey and Levante forward Emmanuel Boateng stand out as rising stars after scoring in last week’s 2-0 win over Japan in Yokohama.
An inexperienced defence looks vulnerable, though, so we’re adding 16/1 for a 2-2 draw to our Iceland vs Ghana betting predictions.
ICELAND 2-3 Norway – Alfred Finnbogason, Gylfi Sigurdsson
Japan 0-2 GHANA – Thomas Partey, Emmanuel Boateng (pen)
