On October 14, Iceland will try to take revenge on Belgium for the defeat in the last match, and we have prepared a forecast for this match. How will the meeting end? – read below.
The “Vikings” probably realized even before the start of the group stage that the fight for the first line would pass without them, because the class of rivals was really amazing, which, in principle, was confirmed in personal matches.
Iceland’s national team has not yet chalked up a single point, as it lost to England (0: 1), was defeated by Belgium (1: 5) and conceded three goals from Denmark (0: 3). Of course, the team would like to perform a little better, but we have what we have.
Eric Hamren’s guys will try to change the situation for the better, especially since the next match will be held at the home arena, although the Belgians come to visit, so you will have to wait for your chance again.
The Red Devils are one of the main contenders for the first place in the group, but they are still one point behind the leader. The team hopes that England will lose points in the match with the Danes, so they need to win in the next meeting.
Roberto Martinez, in his usual style, will bet on the attack, especially in the last personal meeting against Iceland, his guys simply destroyed the opponent (5: 1). In addition, the Belgians beat Denmark (2: 0), but failed to cope with the Three Lions (1: 2).
The Belgian national team will have to enter the field without their midfield leader, because Kevin De Bruyne felt uncomfortable and noted that he was not completely ready for a duel with the Icelanders.
The teams played 12 personal games between themselves, until the Vikings won.
Iceland has lost all three matches in the League of Nations.
In ten previous matches, the Belgian national team lost only once.

09/11/18 Iceland Belgium 0: 3
What can the owners hope for, perhaps for luck or for their own defense. Most likely, the Icelandic national team will choose the second option, since they need points, and in the match against the Belgians it will be extremely difficult to score them.
There is no doubt that the Belgian national team will play the first number, but how quickly the guests’ attack will reveal the opponent’s defense is another question. In our opinion, Eric Hamren’s charges will perform better at home than in the last face-to-face meeting, and consequently they will concede less.
