Football tips – Indonesia vs Iceland – Friendlies

Iceland have taken just one point from their last three Friendlies. matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Iceland are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions Indonesia should prove no easy feat either – Iceland haven’t won against any Friendlies. leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

Indonesia have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Indonesia dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the Friendlies.’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

Indonesia are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about Indonesia and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in Indonesia’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Iceland are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Iceland took a point away from Indonesia (1-1 draw).

Notably, Indonesia’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Indonesia have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four Friendlies. away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Iceland, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Iceland getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Iceland are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), Indonesia hold the best away record in the Friendlies. (W8 D2 L1). Iceland’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with Indonesia’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the Indonesians could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 Indonesia win at 15/2 with bet365.
