Holland vs Iceland Prediction and Preview – 03/09/15
Euro 2016 Qualifying preview – Holland vs Iceland prediction
Here we have two teams that will be difficult to separate Holland vs Iceland both have superb talents be it in totally different areas. The Dutch have individual brilliance that can overturn a team at a drop of a hat as we found out in the world cup. On the other side of the coin we have Iceland who don’t boast the best players in the world but they have team spirit and every player knows his job down to a tee.
Hollands form hasn’t been the best of late in their last 10 international games they have lost 5 looking very weak. They will be hoping the big guns will be at the ready to fire a win for the Dutch.
Iceland currently sit top of their group with a staggering five points separating them and third placed Holland. The well balanced Iceland team will be hoping to upset a rocky Dutch side and almost guarantee themselves automatic qualification.
Cillessen, Van der Wiel, Blind, De Vrij, Martins Indi, Anita, Sneijder, Klaassen, Robben, Memphis, Huntelaar
Halldorsson, Saevarsson, Skulason, Arnason, Sigurosson, Gunnarsson, Bjarnson, Gislason, Sigurdsson, Gudmundsson, Sigthorsson
- Holland have lost 50% of their last ten games
- Iceland have lost 20% of their last ten games
- In their last four matches against each other each team has won twice
With Holland being fairly poor and Iceland on a very good run the smart money would be to back an Iceland win but with the likes of Depay, Robben and Klaassen i really can’t see Iceland being able to withstand the constant pressure of these guys, Combined with this match being a must win for Holland i can’t see anything other than a Dutch onslaught to get the nation back on their side after a good world cup campaign.
