Iceland vs Germany team news
Neither side picked up any major injuries or suspensions at the weekend, with both managers being able to use their full squads.
Hansi Flick has rotated so far in the two games of his tenure and could make changes to the starting XI once more, while his Icelandic counterpart Arnar Vioarsson is likely to keep faith with the same team from Sunday night.
Iceland vs Germany preview
Defensively Iceland have been extremely poor over the last year with their only clean sheet in the last 16 matches coming in a 1-0 friendly win against the Faroe Islands earlier this summer.
In March, Germany comfortably beat them 3-0 while over the last 12 months Iceland have conceded five goals to Belgium, four goals to England, three goals to Denmark and even a goal to Liechtenstein.
Germany may be in a transitional period with a new coach for the first time in a decade, but the visitors still have enough firepower to record a comfortable victory on Wednesday as they showed by thrashing an in-form Armenia side at the weekend.
Iceland vs Germany tips & predictions
Germany to win and score over 2.5 goals is priced at 8/11 (1.73) and looks a good way of getting the visitors onside, while backing Flick’s men to score in both halves at 4/5 (1.80) also looks like an excellent option.
