Iceland national team face Austria in their last match of the Euro 2016 group stage. The match is taking place at Stade de France on Wednesday, June 22nd.
Iceland drew both of their matches at the tournament, having under 40% possession and focusing on counterattacking football. Such approach pays off so far as Iceland escaped in clash against Portugal after scoring late equalizer. Moreover, they had a lead in match against Romania until 88th minute but couldn’t hold to the advantage that could’ve guarantee them the place in round of last 16. The team is currently second in the group with two points and only victory over Austria would give them the place in knockout stage.

Austria failed their first match at the competition, losing to neighbors Hungary 0-2 and that defeat came as quite a surprise. Austria got lucky to record a draw in clash against strong Portugal after Ronaldo missed from the spot. Austria played well in qualifying group but is appears they forgot to play football after they arrived to France. None of the players showed their best football and even Alaba, one of the leaders of Bayern Munich, was substituted in match against Portugal. The team has gained only one point in tow matches but still has chances to qualify for the next round if they win today.
Iceland and Austria played three head-to-heads in their history. Two of these matches ended with draws and one was won by Austria. The upcoming match will be like a final for both teams as they still have chances for the knockout stage and the price of mistake is too high. This is why we shouldn't expect numerous goal in this match.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 goals.
