Iceland have already wrapped up the qualification and they fly to Turkey knowing that they will be on the plane to Euro2016 no matter what happens. Turkey on the other hand know they must get at least a point to guarantee themselves a place in the Playoffs. Turkey have played really well recently winning against Holland and the Czech Republic in must win games and have shown the type of form they are capable of. If they manage to get themselves into the playoffs they will be one of the toughest teams to play. Led by Turan, Inan and Calhanoglu this is a side that will definitely feel like they can win here against Iceland and guarantee themselves a spot in the playoffs.
With Iceland already through it's hard to see the motivation for this team against a highly motivated Turkey team but this Icelandic team has been nothing if not consistant and they will not just go through the motions in Turkey. Swansea star Gylfi Sigurdsson will take the lead role for Iceland and along with Sigborsson they have been a tough team to play against. Sigurdsson in particular has been excellent the entire qualifying campaign and will again merit a look from the so called big teams in the Premier League, surely one of them can find a place for him in their midfield?
Tough one to call here but hard to take on Turkey given their greater need for the points. I think the value is not really there in takign Turkey straight up though and instead I am going to go for the corners market. Over 6.5 corners for Turkey is the bet for me as I see Turkey creating alot down the wings and forcing corners early and often.
