Iceland national team take on Hungary in the second round match of Euro-2016 group stage. The match will be played in Marseille at Velodrome on Saturday, June 18th.
Lars Lagerback's men proved their character in clash against Portugal, gaining their first point in final stages of European Championships after 1-1 draw. Iceland were focused on defense and sting Portuguese team with dangerous counterattacks. Moreover, just like Portugal, Iceland had chances for three points in the end of the match. Iceland are physically strong side who play well on long balls. We should expect the team to play more offence comparing to the clash against skilled Portugal and put more pressure on Hungary.

Hungary sensationally defeated Austria in their first match, 2-0. Stork’s men played quite poorly in friendlies before the start of Euro 2016 but showed much better performance against Austria in opening match, playing solid defensively and converting confidently counterattacks. And now Hungary, who wasn’t expected to qualify at all have impressive chance to clinch playoff’s place. To reach this objective, Hungary need to gain at least one points in two remaining matches.
The opponents played eight head-to-heads in their history and all of these matches were played in last 25 years. Iceland have recorded three wins and five wins were taken by Hungary. Iceland provided themselves as organized and balances side in match against Portugal. Hungary are also focused on defensing their goal rather than on build-ups. This is why we shouldn’t expect numerous goals scored in this match.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 goals.
