LiveSoccerTV's match preview is the source for team stats, lineups, head-to-head analysis, and broadcast listings for France's friendly vs. Iceland, which kicks off at 15:00 EST/21:00 CET.

Current form: How France and Iceland compare

Since the start of 2018, France have lost just one game. That was a 3-2 reversal during a friendly clash with Colombia, and along the way, Didier Deschamps's men have drawn just three fixtures. One was a 1-1 stalemate with the USA in a friendly played in June, shortly before the 2018 World Cup. Another was a scoreless draw against Denmark during the group stages of this summer's World Cup, and the last was another scoreless draw versus Germany during their first Nations League tie in Munich last month.

Les Bleus will next face die Mannschaft yet again next week, and the reigning world champs will want to head into that game well-prepared. With four points from their first two Nations League games, they are in a great position to top their trio, and will surely be fancying their chances against Iceland, who have been in a rut as of late.

Iceland have been making waves since they burst onto the scene a couple years ago, but 2018 has not been kind to the tiny nation. Although they managed a very impressive draw against Argentina at the World Cup this past summer, it was the only point they managed as they were beaten by Nigeria and a well-trained Croatia side that shocked everyone by eventually making it to the finals. All in all, Iceland have won just one match since the start of 2018, and as the head to head stats will indicate, their chances of success in this upcoming friendly do not look good.

Head to head stats: France vs Iceland

If the two sides' current form did not clearly indicate that France have the upper hand in this contest, well, the head to head record certainly will. Iceland are the definite underdogs in this fixture, but then again, the minnows are used to that. Could they use that to their advantage to pull off a shock result? Or will France assert their superiority once again?

Here is how the two sides compare ahead of this friendly.

Players to watch

One player who all eyes will be on is none other than Paul Pogba. With 10 goals in 62 appearances so far for his national side, he ranks only behind strikers Olivier Giroud (32 goals in 83 appearances) and Antoine Griezmann (24 goals in 63 appearance) in terms of goal output, and has netted more goals than any other midfielder in Deschamps's squad.

France vs Iceland pre-match talk: Pogba's off-the pitch issues

Despite being a key part of France's success at this summer's World Cup, the former Juventus star has endured a miserable time so far at Manchester United, and that is namely due to his difficult relationship with Jose Mourinho. Having been reportedly stripped of the vice-captain's armband, Pogba does look set for an exit from Old Trafford at some point if Mourinho continues to remain on the bench, but for now, fans will certainly hope that the drama he is facing with his club will not interfere with him focusing on international responsibilities to help France preserve their unbeaten record against potentially tricky minnows Iceland.
