Austria have had a poor campaign so far and this game will be do or die for them as the take on Iceland in the final round of the group stage in this Euro 2016 competition. For both sides there is plenty to play for so this could be a very good game.

Iceland have been in good form and this side will feel harsh done by if they fail to qualify after drawing against Portugal and getting robbed of a win against Hungary. This is the game that could make their tournament since a win could even put them in contention for top spot in the group. That being said, it will not be an easy game since Austria will not want to leave this tournament with 3 losses.

Austria have been poor and it comes down to the midfield. A lot of expectation was on David Alaba to play in the midfield but the Bayern Munich man such seems out of position and he has been really poor. He and his teammates will try to turn it around but when the momentum is against you it can get really tough to change form.

All in all, I am going to pick Iceland to win this game. This side has played with heart and it just seems like they will win with all the momentum behind them and the poor form of Austria. We are getting a good enough price to bet on this result and this is probably the most profitable play in this game. Betting on the goal line is also an option with the under 2.5 goals being the favorable option but the result bet is clearly still better. 

Pick:
Iceland
