Albania vs Iceland Preview:

Last Saturday Albania has lost against France and after losing they find themselves six points behind the leading trio in Group H.

So, it is clear that they must take all three points when they host Iceland at Elbasan Arena on Tuesday. The visitors will be looking to go top of the group.

For Albania, it is not a productive qualifying campaign who’s currently someway off the top two.

Although they’ve beaten Moldova and Andorra but it doesn’t mean they have turned their ways.

Because they’ve already shown weakness against Turkey and France and when losing in the reverse of this fixture.

When the both sides met in Iceland, it became a close match, one that truly wasn’t full of attacking quality and scoring possibilities.

As they made only 60.0 expected goals for and registered not more than three shots on the destination, the Albanians conceded just 0.50 and restricted their hosts to only two shots on the destination.

After a respectable performance in defeat on the way, Tuesday’s hosts should fancy themselves to get victory on home soil.

Iceland comes to the table with a 3-0 home win over Moldova, that didn’t really indicate the fans anything.

Before that Iceland impressed when they’ve beaten Turkey by two goals. These two shots were on the correct line and we were really surprised.

According to their previous performance, it indicates that Iceland is in a better position than Albania.

It is not like that they have not struggled on the way.

They have struggled against France when they’ve lost by four goals.
