Germany vs Iceland Prediction: World Cup Qualifier Match on 25.03.2021
The European World Cup qualifiers continue on Thursday, with Germany’s home match against Iceland the focus here. The home team is eager to get the ball rolling with three points at home and show why they are among the solid early favourites to win the next World Cup.
Wednesday is the first time these sides had met since the European Championships back in 2003 when Germany strolled to a 3-0 victory in front of their support. Something close to a repeat here wouldn’t be a shock result, but Iceland knows they must do better.
Germany have high standards
Germany should qualify for the World Cup proper without encountering too much resistance along the way. Supporters hold high hopes of seeing their side continue to dominate world football. Many pundits pick the Germans in the know to live up to those expectations and win the trophy.
The home team scored back-to-back wins over the Czech Republic and Ukraine late last year but were humiliated by Spain in the UEFA Nations League. The Red Fury recorded a stunning 6-0 victory over the Germans, and that’s a result fans will demand a response to in this game.
Iceland up against it
Iceland will arrive in Germany aware of the challenge that awaits, but they are a well organised and disciplined team. If their hosts take them lightly, Iceland is good enough to pay and pull off a shock win. They’ll hope Germany is still hurting from that loss to Spain.
The visitors lost 4-0 against England in November when on Nations League duty. That loss followed a 2-1 defeat in Denmark, 2-1 away to Hungary and another 2-1 loss against Belgium. The away team must show a drastic improvement if they are to avoid another poor result.
Germany vs Iceland prediction
The home team will be confident in their ability to grab a home win over a struggling opponent. Germany has been playing good football and enjoy some great form. We can’t say the same for Iceland, and they must be at their best to avoid a crushing defeat. Iceland must defend with strength and take any chances that come their way on the counter. It certainly won’t be easy to beat Germany on the road, but it’s by no means impossible.
