Our in-depth algorithm, known as the World Cup predictor has given the World Cup 2018 predictions for the match Argentina vs Iceland. The predictions are based on several factors but first, let us take a look at the match preview.
This is a match of Group D. Both sides will be hoping to kick-off their campaign with a win, especially Argentina, who have massive expectations attached to them.
Argentina have not been in the best form ahead of the World Cup. They have won just 3 in their last 5 international matches, which shows their inconsistency. Added to that, some of the players have picked up injuries and therefore, things might have become a little complicated and tougher for them.
The opening match against Iceland means that they have a good chance to get all 3 points. A lot if expected of Leo Messi and Argentina would be hoping to have him at his best.
Iceland, on the other hand, would also look to make a good start to the World Cup 2018. They have been poor over the last 5 matches and have won just 1. Nevertheless, they have made a remarkable statement in their recent major tournaments and thus, they will be giving their all for this one too. They are competing in a World Cup for the first time having finished above fellow Group D rival Croatia, during the qualification period. They are the smallest ever nation to qualify for a World Cup finals.
