Iceland had a great moment in their first game when they fought so hard to withstand Portugal’s pressure and hold out for a draw which was a massive boost for them in their first ever European Championship game, they will now look to gain Maximum points when they play Hungary in their second game of the tournament.
Hungary on their on part did well to grab an easy victory over Austria in their first game. They now have 3 points and sit top of their group table and hope to continue their good form to grab another win when they play Iceland. Hungary could qualify for the second round of the tournament if they take maximum points on Saturday.
Iceland who are among the débutants in this tournament put in a huge performance against Portugal. They did extremely well to contain Cristiano Ronaldo and his cohorts to earn them a point in the game. The question now is, can they repeat the performance again against Hungary and work harder to grab maximum points on Saturday to put them in a better position to quality of the round of 16.

Iceland vs Hungary: Predictions
The game would be a tough one to call as the two teams involved are full of confidence as they enter the football field. Iceland have taken point from the groups strongest opponents Portugal, while Hungary did well to bet ten men Austria comfortably and now have 3 points. Hungary already knew what’s in the bag, a win would send them to the the next round of the tournament.
Though Iceland did well to draw with Portugal, their last twelve game is not a good story as their form states W3 D3 L6.
The game could go either way but I’m confident both teams get at least a goal in the game, also the game could see goals up-to 3 or 4, a draw is out of the question.
1. Both teams to score
2. Over 2.5 goals
3. Double chance either side wins
