Iceland VS Austria Prediction 22.06.2016

In Group F Euro Cup by on June 13, 2016


Iceland meets Austria on the last day of the group stage of the Euro Cup 2016. The place of their encounter is the magnificent Stade de France in Saint Denis. This is one of the last 4 matches that will take place on the 22nd of June. By the start of this match Austria will already know if they’re going to advance to the next stage or not. Just because of this we don’t expect to see a lot of pressure on their end of the pitch. However, if Iceland still has the chances to advance to the knockout stage it will be a bloodbath. Iceland will want to leave an impression as this can possibly be their last game of the tournament.


This is Iceland’s first ever appearance in a major football tournament. Their competitors can evaluate their capabilities based only on what they showed us in the qualifying round of the Euro Cup 2016. Their performance is not crystal clear, but that’s why they showed us they can hold off the pressure when playing against strong squads and that they can even go the distance and score. Eidur Gudjohnsen is still the captain of the team at 37 years of age. His experience is much needed in this kind of matches. They can be the next surprise, all they need is a little bit of luck.

Probable line-up:


The Austrians have very high chances of advancing to the next stage of the tournament. Most likely they and the Portuguese will move on. However, Iceland and Hungary have to say a thing or two regarding this particular case. Austria has a disciplined team of skilled football players that are able to deliver whatever Marcel Koller comes up with. It’s his responsibility to devise a plan, a strategy, an approach that will allow his players to overcome Iceland and keep them at bay without much effort. After all, football is not only about strength, agility and speed. It takes teamwork, strategy and the ability to stay focused throughout the whole 90 minute period.

David Alaba is Austria’s leading star. As a midfielder, he can change the whole course of the game. Alaba has already proven he is a world class player. If Austria has the points to advance further, regardless of the outcome this match we’re definitely going to see a spectacular show, hopefully a lot of goals as well.

Probable line-up:
