England – Iceland betting tip, prediction & odds 07.06.2024

EM test match, Friday, 07.06.2024

There is not much time left. Coach Gareth Southgate’s team must get everything right once again in the last test before Euro 2024.

Exactly one week before the start of the tournament, they will face the so-called “Strákarnir” from Iceland. Will the Three Lions be successful in this test?

In any case, my England Iceland betting tip is that the hosts will have a much greater share of the game, even if there might be a few jolts here and there

The test against Bosnia-Herzegovina was already decent. The English team won with a clear 3:0 on Monday evening.

This victory was not a matter of course, especially in terms of its clarity. After all, the team’s previous performances had been rather mixed

The team only drew 1:1 against North Macedonia and lost 1:0 to Brazil in a test in mid-March. The 2-2 draw against Belgium shortly afterwards seemed like a sense of achievement thanks to the late equalizer.

That equalizer was scored by Jude Bellingham. Gareth Southgate still had to do without the newly crowned Champions League winner against Bosnia. However, he should be back at the weekend

In addition, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw are likely to return to action for the hosts. Both have been struggling recently.

But the defense stood firm against Bosnia. Once again, they had to be patient going forward. They scored two more goals in the final minutes through Kane and Alexander-Arnold.

Will there be late goals again this time? The bookmakers at Bwin are predicting odds of around 1.60 for your England vs Iceland bet if at least two goals are scored in the second half

Of course, the opponent from the far north is one that has proven in qualifying for this tournament that it can patiently pull back in its own penalty area.

Portugal struggled for a long time in the second leg on the final matchday of the European Championship qualifiers. In the end, the Iberians won 2:0, but without really shining

They repeatedly had the opportunity to create danger up front, particularly through Albert Gudmundsson. The Genoa striker scored 14 times in Serie A alone!

So if both teams score on Saturday, you will find odds of over 2.00 for your England Iceland betting tip with the bookmakers for Euro 2024

From a historical perspective, the two nations do have certain overlaps. Probably the most famous took place eight years ago.

The two teams met in the round of 16 at the 2016 European Championship. The Icelanders sensationally prevailed 2:1 at the time

Both Harry Kane and Kyle Walker were involved in the game back then. Both are now much more experienced and will be keen to save their team from another embarrassment.

However, many of the bookmakers are expecting a clear-cut result, as in the Nations League duel four years ago, where the Three Lions prevailed 4-0.

The starting position of the two teams is of course completely different. While nothing is at stake for the Icelanders in sporting terms, the home side will want to get up to temperature quickly.

Southgate is likely to field more or less his first eleven. Bellingham & Co. want to pick up where they left off against Bosnia.

Even if they have to be a little patient, my England Iceland tip is: The Three Lions win with handicap -2!
