Albania hope to stop the rot

They came up empty-handed once again when Israel ran out 2-1 winners.
Iceland continue to collect points
Iceland look in good shape before their upcoming match as they seek to remain unbeaten. In their last three matches, they first beat San Marino by 0-1, before drawing 2-2 with Israel. They were back as winners last time out, when they took out Venezuela by a 1-0 scoreline.
