Iceland vs Austria betting tips and predictions for the crunch final fixture in Group F in Euro 2016 tonight including the best odds for each betting tip.
Iceland have come as a shock to most football watchers of the Euros so far, their dogged defensive displays coupled with a real potency going forward has entertained the public in their previous two 1-1 draws in the groups stages. Austria on the other hand have probably disappointed many neutrals who seem them as dark horses for the competition, their lack of incisive forward play has left them goalless in their first two fixtures of the group.
Group F is one of the closer groups to call between, with Hungary out on top on four points, Portugal and Iceland on two points and Austria languishing at the bottom on just one point. The pressure in this game is on Austria, as anything less than a win will see them confirmed out of the tournament. Iceland could very well go through as one of the four best third place playoff sides if they were to pick up another draw. Hungary are all but through, which is lucky as I can see Portugal destroying them.
The most impressive part of Iceland so far has been their support. For such a small country they've brought a whopping 10% of their population to France to support their men in their first international tournament. They'll need each and every one of them to keep it going as they'll be under pressure from minute one by Austria as they'll seek to right the wrongs of the first two matches.
My first Iceland vs Austria betting tip for this game is going to be a draw. Austria will have the majority of the play as well as the best chances, but 11/10 for a team who haven't scored yet isn't enticing enough at all. I prefer to go with the plucky opposition who've proved they aren't to be taken for granted. A draw can be found at 5/2 with Ladbrokes.

My second Iceland vs Austria prediction is going to be an anytime goalscorer and its Marko Arnautovic. He's not particularly turned up at the tournament so far, but he's one of the most likely to bring the goals for Austria if they are to score, Martin Harnik was dangerous against Portugal but there's concerns on his starting place, so I'd rather go with someone almost guaranteed to play 90 mins. Marko Arnautovic is 3/1 to score anytime with Bet365.

My final Iceland vs Austria prediction is going to be a correct score tip. I've already predicted a draw, and with Iceland drawing both their games 1-1 id be silly not to go with this match finishing 1-1 as well. They'd take that before the game, and I do fancy both teams to score, and it's down to whether Austria have the bottle to score more. The 1-1 correct score is 6/1 with William Hill.
