EURO 2016 Predictions, Quarter-Final: France v Iceland

France-Iceland is the last game of this year’s quarter-finals and is bound to be very exciting. The French produced some scintillating games this tournament, while Iceland are probably the most cheered team around the globe thanks to their determination and their awesome performances. Who will emerge victorious and win the chance to play Germany or Italy in the semi-finals?

Odds At European Betting Sites:

France 1.44 or 4/9   Draw 4.50 or 7/2   Iceland 9.00 or 8/1

The hosts, France, are undoubtedly the favorites for this clash. They managed to overturn an early Irish goal in the round of 16 and win 2-1, after a game which they dominated completely, just like they did with the 3 games they played in the group stage.

Their team looks strong, well-connected and with good working relationships, but also has immense individual quality: Griezmann, Pogba, and Payet seem at the top of their game. It will be hard for any team to stop them this year.

Meanwhile, Iceland is a team of surprises. Surprise qualification for Euro 2016, surprise qualification from the group, then a surprise win against England, to send them out of Europe for the second time in a week.

While they sometimes lack technique or creativity, the Icelanders compensate using determination, hard work, and exceptional physical power, managing to out-run and out-muscle almost any opposition so far. Will they manage to produce another surprise against France?

Our bet would be no, they won’t. They did rely on a little bit of luck in all their games so far – penalties, last minute goals, own goals by the opposition, lots of missed chances for the opposition, etc. The French will most likely punish their every mistake, and if Iceland will be forced to attack, they might concede many goals.

Our prediction is that France will win, and if you’re looking for larger odds, try betting France and over 2,5 goals or France -1 (Asian Handicap) to win. The most likely goalscorers, in our opinion, are Griezmann and Giroud.

Betting Tips:

France And Over 2.5 Goals: 2.37 or 11/8

Asian Handicap: France -1.0 – 3.40 or 12/5

Goalscorer: Olivier Giroud – 2.25 or 5/4
