Group H of the 2020 EURO Cup Qualifiers is certainly a very intriguing one, with four teams actively chasing two spots. Iceland have been steadily improving over recent years and have established themselves as quite the opponents. They will now play host to France on Friday, who are actually not sitting at the top of the Group, second only to Turkey.

Spread: France -1
Total: 2.5 Goals
Iceland (4-2-0) met a really frustrating 2-4 loss against Albania in their last match. They saw their opponents take the lead twice in that match, but Iceland pulled even on both occasions. But they went on to concede two more goals till the end of the match, to eventually lose by 2-4 on the road. That was their first loss after three consecutive wins, all at home. Iceland are now sitting at the 3rd spot of the group with 12 points, three points behind France and Turkey. Iceland have scored 10 goals and have conceded nine in the process. Four of their six matches so far had Over 2.5 Goals and they have kept three clean sheets.
On the other hand, France (5-1-0) had a pretty easy job in their last match, where they overcame Andorra by a comfortable 0-3 at home. They pummeled their opponents and even missed a penalty kick in that match, and could have easily scored more goals. France are sitting at the 2nd spot of Group H with 15 points, just as many as Turkey above them. They have scored 19 goals so far, and have conceded just four in the process. Five of their six matches in this stage have featured Over 2.5 Goals and they have kept three clean sheets.
France won by 0-4 at home when the two teams met in the first round in France. They are still undefeated against Iceland over the years (10-0-4 in all competitions). But they kept just one clean sheet in their last eight matches against Iceland. More importantly, there have been at least four goals in six of the last seven matches between the two. Iceland will try to get the best of this home match, but I will definitely take the Over 2.5 Goals here.
