Didier Deschamps' men suffered a shock defeat to leaders Turkey back in June but have won all five of their other games in the group to sit level on points with Senol Gunes' side.
Iceland are just three points behind Turkey and France and know that a win would put them in a great position.
Iceland vs France Team News
The world champions are without Kylian Mbappe, who has been struggling with a thigh problem. His place in the squad has been taken by Borussia Monchengladbach forward Alassane Plea.
Paul Pogba is also out for Les Bleus.
Iceland vs France Preview
Iceland have failed to win any of the 14 matches they have contested against France, although meetings between these sides tend to be entertaining.
Each of the last five clashes has seen over 3.5 goals, while both France and Iceland have been scoring freely in their qualifying campaign.
Deschamps' side have netted 19 times with their six matches averaging 3.83 goals, while Iceland's games have averaged 3.17 goals.
Given the history of this fixture, plus the respective form of the two sides, backing another high-scoring encounter makes plenty of sense.
Tips and predictions
Over 2.5 goals in the game seems a safe bet and is offered at the extremely healthy looking price of 1.86. This bet has paid out in five of France's six qualifiers and in four of Iceland's six games in the group.
