Iceland vs Hungary Team News
Lars Lagerback has no fresh injury worries ahead of the Hungary game and he is likely to field the same starting XI that faced Portugal. Goalkeeper Hannes Halldorsson produced a terrific display against Cristiano Ronaldo and Co. and he is should start in goal. Premier League star Gylfi Sigurdsson will be the man to watch in the home team.
Attila Fiola has been struggling with an ankle and he is rated doubtful for the Iceland clash. Coach Bernd Storck has no other selection worries ahead of the second group game. Krisztian Nemeth has overcome his injury, but he picked up a yellow card in the 2-0 win over Austria, meaning that he is one yellow card away from suspension.
Doubtful: Attila Fiola (15/0)
- Hungary are after their fifth consecutive win over Iceland
- Hungarians scored 3+ goals in previous three encounters against Iceland
- Bernd Storck’s team are eyeing their fourth consecutive win at Euro finals
- Two or three goals were netted in Hungary’s last three games at Euro finals
- Over 3.5 goals were netted in previous three meetings between the two teams
Iceland vs Hungary Prediction
Hungary did well to beat the odds in their Euro 2016 opener, with the team defeating Austria at Stade Matmut-Atlantique and they are certainly brimming with confidence ahead of Saturday’s match against Iceland. The Icelanders held Portugal to a 1-1 draw and given that both teams will be more than happy with one point from the Stade Velodrome showdown, share of spoils appears on the cards.
