England vs. Iceland is the last game in the round of 16 at Euro 2016, and the prize is a place in the quarter-finals to face the host nation, France. What will we see next? Another English-French war, or the continuation of the Nordic surprise? Let’s see the analysis.
Online Betting Odds At European Betting Sites:
England 1.50 or 1/2 Draw 4.00 or 3/1 Iceland 9.50 or 17/2
On paper, England seem like clear favorites. This is especially due to their strong, athletic game featuring lots of strong players as well as quick ones. They managed to create lots of chances in all their games this year and will surely come up with a few more in the game against Iceland.
On top of that, they slowly seemed to find their best eleven and playing style, which can only mean good news. Harry Kane is still searching for his first goal in this championship – maybe he will find it today.
On the other hand, Iceland are continuing their dream. They surprised everyone with qualifying to the final championship, and they proceeded to draw Portugal and Hungary before beating Austria in a dramatic last encounter of the group.
That result guaranteed their participation in the knockout round. They have largely exceeded their expectation by quite some distance, meaning that they might lack motivation against England.
All these considered, the English seem clear favorite to qualify further and even to win the game. They should score relatively soon, so betting that England will score in the first half is a decent idea. Over 1,5 goals in the game is another good idea.
If you’re looking for live betting, try to follow the game closely – if Iceland manage to score first, they will most probably retreat. In that case, think to bet on England to score, Under 2,5 goals maybe, and bet that the Icelanders will have their fair share of yellow cards. If you’re looking for something simple, look no further: England to win.
1st Half Result: England Win – 2.15 or 23/20
Total Goals Over/Under – Over 2.5 2.25 or 5/4
