Iceland - Armenia
I saw Iceland against the Macedonian national team last month. They were two goals down until the finish of the match and played really poor. I don t think N.Macedonia are strong, on contrary. However, the Macedonians fully controlled the match, it was a game between cat and mouse. But too many missed chances wasn t a good sign. In a crazy finish Iceland somehow scored twice and remained unbeaten. Nevertheless, that didn t change my opinion at all.
Armenia will control the ball, I have no doubt about that. They will go for the victory, three points from this match could be crucial at the end of the campaign. N.Macedonia have an "easy" match with Liechtenstein and could take the second place in the group if Armenia don t win here. I think the Armenians will enter the match fully motivated and they won t lose at Laugardalsvollur. As I wrote, the quality is on their side. In addition, Armenia have a player able to make a difference in this match - Henrikh Mkhitaryan. His quality and his experience should be enough Armenia to get a positive result in this match.
