Saudi Arabia vs Iceland Predictions and Tips

This will be the first duel between Saudi Arabia and Iceland, a match that will be crucial for the Saudis who are keen to advance to the furthest possible in the 2022 World Cup kicking off in less than 3 weeks. Icelanders didn’t make it to the World Cup, but this will be important for them in match fitness. Read and bet on our best Saudi Arabia vs Iceland predictions below.

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals

Saudi Arabia has two games ahead of their World Cup participation later this month. This clash with Iceland will be the toughest before another encounter with Panama. Both the opponents didn’t make it to the event in Qatar. Iceland is a highly defensive team and if you consider how the Saudis have fared in recent matches, bagging three cleans in their last four and not leaking more than a goal in any of their last six games, bet on Saudi Arabia vs Iceland to end with fewer than 3 goals.

Team to score prediction: BTTS-No

Another result we expect from this game is goals on one end. There isn’t much interest vested in this friendly clash, so while it will be important for Saudi head coach, Herve Renard, to test the fitness of his squad, we expect goals on possibly one end of the pitch. So, our second prediction is a one-sided scoreline.

Correct score prediction: 0-0 Half-time

This is a clash of two defensive sides with little to play for, except for World Cup fitness. Saudis will want to prove their competitive worthiness ahead of the World Cup and choosing Iceland, a historically defensive team to play against at this stage is why we expect the first half to end 0-0.

Saudi Arabia vs Iceland Preview

Saudi Arabia

It is less than three weeks to the World Cup and Saudi Arabia hopes to do better in this year's tournament than they did in previous campaigns. The hosts are currently ranked 51st in global football by FIFA, so expect them to fight hard to win this pre-world cup fixture against Iceland. An undefeated 4-match run and three clean sheets during that period make the hosts defensively stronger than Iceland ahead of the clash,


Iceland is currently 62nd in the world football rankings, 11 places below Saudi Arabia. This will be their first clash with Saudi Arabia, so we expect a tense matchup between two teams that are known to play defensive football. The visitors are undefeated in six matches ahead of the clash. In that period, Iceland kept two clean sheets.
