Iceland vs Hungary 18 June 2016: Euro 2016 Preview and Predictions

Iceland and Hungary both impressed in their opening games and this time around they will play against each other in a game where the winning side will all but guarantee qualification into the round of 16. Both teams are attacking and free flowing so I think we should be expecting a great contest.

Iceland surprised me in the qualification stage as the dominated their group then and after their draw against Portugal, I think this is a side that can do really well. The team is filled with pace and their finishing has been top level. This game will be a real chance for them to win since Hungary are much weaker than Portugal and by winning it will surely create history in Icelandic football.

Hungary were once a great footballing nation but lately they sort of fell off the radar. That being said, they did win their opening game and I think they have a good chance of doing well in this match as well. This team is solid at the back and dangerous up front so we have a perfect combination. There problem is that they often get lazy but if the team doesn’t they will surely be a force.

I am going to predict a win for Iceland here. This side has amazed me for the past few years and there is no reason why they can’t win this game. As far as betting is concerned, we are getting the right price to bet on this result as well so I think that is the most profitable option for sure. In addition to this, the under 2.5 goals is also a good bet since both defenses are quite solid.
