France will travel to Laugardalsvöllur stadium for their crucial away game against Iceland in the UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers. It’s a must-win match for the French-side as they are currently just three points ahead of Iceland and will have to secure the win to qualify for Euro 2020. To keep their chances of getting into Euro 2020, they will want Turkey to drop points against Albania in their next fixture. France, however, have enjoyed two back-to-back wins against Andorra and Albania.
Iceland are also very much alive in the contest for the top two spots and if they manage to beat France or least hold them to a draw, it will open many doors for them till the final Euro 2020 qualifiers matchday. If the hosts manage to get a win then that will shape up their competition and put France in real risk of losing out on the second place. The clash is one of the most crucial matches of the week, as faiths of the two sides will be largely decided on the results.
