France national team take on Iceland in the quarterfinal match of Euro 2016. The match will be taking place in Saint Denis at Stade de France on Sunday, July 3rd.
In the previous round France national team experienced what it’s like to be behind in the match for the first time at the tournament after Ireland took an early lead in the match. However, Deschamp’s men showed their spirit and turned thing around with two goals by Antoine Greizmann in the second half. The team is on eight-match unbeaten run in all competitions but they haven’t faced a top team in any of these matches so it’s hard to speak of France true power. They had troubles in each of their four matches at the tournament and it’s hard to expect them to go further than semifinals where they might face either Germany or Italy.

Iceland’s performance and results are the sensation of Euro 2016. The team never had over 40% possession in any of their four matches but managed to take two wins and two draws which got them that far. Lars Lagerback’s men conceded an early goal in the round of 16 against England but found the strength to equalize and take the lead, beating England 2-1 and causing second Brexit in one week. Iceland defensive line didn’t let the Three Lions to create a single chance to equalize in the second half. The team knows they own strong sides and apply their limited resources properly to get results they need.
France and Iceland played 11 head-to-heads in their history. Eight time France celebrated a victory and three other matches ended with draws. Moreover, both of the today’s opponent found the back of the net in their last five meetings on the pitch. Iceland have scored at least once in their last 13 matches in all competitions, including each match of Euro 2016 while France defensive line lack their best players due to injuries and don’t appear to be rock-solid. Considering teams’ records and the value of the odd we can expect Iceland to score at least once in upcoming clash.
Prediction for the match: Iceland to score.
