Women’s EURO 2022 Preview
Both Belgium and Iceland will be looking to start the European Championships quickly this summer, as they look to cause a shock and reach the knockout round. Belgium finished top of their qualification group in fine fashion, as they won seven of the eight games that they played. Their only defeat was suffered on the road against Switzerland.
They were strong at both ends of the pitch throughout qualification, as they scored 37 goals and allowed just five. However, they have only reached the finals of a women’s major tournament on one previous occasion. That appearance came in 2017, as they were eliminated in the group stage of EURO 2017. They have had a mixed warm up for the tournament, as they have lost twice and won twice in the four fixtures that they have played. Their final warm up game ended in a 6-1 win against Luxembourg.
Iceland needed to qualify for the EUROS the hard way after they finished second in their qualifying group. But, their superior record meant that they finished as one of the best runners-up. They more than held their own in that group, as they finished just three points behind Sweden. Iceland won six of the eight games that they played, and only lost on one occasion.
Iceland will be playing at the EUROs for the fourth time this year. Their previous best appearance came in 2013 as they reached the quarterfinals, but they were eliminated in the group stage back in 2017 after losing all their games.
Belgium vs Iceland Head to Head
This will be the fourth time that Belgium and Iceland have clashed. Both sides have picked up victories previously, while one match ended in a 0-0 draw. The most recent fixture between the sides came in 2016, with Iceland winning 2-1.
Belgium vs Iceland Prediction
It is extremely hard to separate these two sides as they are ranked close together. However, the slight preference is for Belgium to pick up a narrow victory as they have quality at both ends of the field.
