After the good performance in EURO 2016, Iceland is looking for a chance to play in a third major tournament. The team performed well at the EURO 2020 qualifications, but its strong opponents (such as France and Turkey) left Iceland without a direct place on the European Championship. Still, Iceland won six games, lost three matches, and made one draw, leaving a good overall impression of its style of playing.
A strong core of motivated players replaces the lack of big stars. Moreover, the coach Erik Hameren has to justify the trust of fans, as since 2018 when he took over the team of Iceland, the squad won only 4 games out of 13 (30% success rate). The betting odds for Iceland to go through are around 1.70, which is another confirmation that the hosts have a little advantage over the opponent.
Romania will be rewarded to play its EURO 2020 games at home if it goes through the playoffs. The squad didn't succeed to qualify through the qualification, as it had an uncertain performance during the campaign. The last qualification's game against Spain was a real shame as Romania lost with 5-0. This result cost the coach Cosmin Contra's position, and on the playoffs, Romania will be led by a new manager - Mirel Radoi. The 38-years-old Radoi has the main aim to lift the team's spirit and give Romania's fans the opportunity to enjoy and watch at least three games of their national team at home.
