our main tip:
Goal Under 2.5

Iceland vs. Romania 2021 Euro Qualifiers 08.10.2020

Despite losing the only two games they played against Romania back in 96/97, Iceland has come a long way as a footballing nation. This Nordic island nation with a population of less than 400,000 people has been overcome by a football craze. They qualified for their first World Cup in 2018 and gained fame when they knocked England out of the round of 16. They have since then been pretty decent, particularly when playing at home. Romania have a more illustrious resume as a team on the international stage, but their last appearance in a major international tournament was over at the 2008 Euros. We anticipate a tight encounter here as both teams will be desperate to avoid defeat. We are therefore backing Under 2.5 goals

Main tip: Goal Under 2.5 (go to tip details)
