ICE vs ROM Dream11 Prediction: Iceland and Romania do battle here for the right to face either Bulgaria or Hungary in the Path A final in November. Iceland underperformed in their friendlies last month and notably suffered a heavy 5-1 defeat at the hands of Belgium but the welcome back some key players here in the form of Gylfi Sigurdsson and Johann Berg Gudmundsson with Sigurdsson in particular here having been in good form for Everton recently. He could be the key to unlocking this Romanian defence, who have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last five matches, but this could ultimately be decided by the odd goal with both teams looking to keep things tight so backing against both teams scoring could be the way to play this one.

Iceland Team News
Iceland made a slow start to their UEFA Nations League campaign, with the team suffering back-to-back losses to England (0-1) and Belgium (1-5). The hosts are low on confidence ahead of the visit of Romania, but they should never be written off just yet. They could be faced with another meeting with the World Cup holders should they overcome Romania and also win the playoff final, as Hamren’s men would enter Group F – the ‘Group of Death’, if they are victorious in playoff path A, which has France, Portugal and Germany.
Injury update, unavailability
Iceland manager Erik Hamren has zero fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match with a completely healthy group available to choose from.
