Iceland vs Netherlands 2:0

Because of the upset caused by the victory of the apparent underdog Iceland, here the Goalimpact values of all players. Iceland has some decent players, but the Netherlands should have won this. Yet, given the home field advantage the odds based on the starting XI were

Iceland: 32.6% (Home), draw: 30.8%, The Netherlands: 36.6%

Accounting for the fact that the Dutch bench was also much better, substitutions should make the Netherlands an even clearer favorite.

Turkey vs Czech Republic: Goalimpact of Lineups

Turkey hosts Czech Republic in an European Championship qualifier. The great times of both teams seem a bit over lately, but the Czech silently improved a bit again. They now have a better team than Turkey, especially if we also account for the bench.

Just based on the starting XI the odds are
Turkey: 44.6%
Draw: 29.8%
Czech Republic: 25.6%

Turkey being a slight favorite due to the home field advantage. A draw shouldn't come at a surprise either.
