France vs Iceland Betting Tip and Predictions. In the last match of the Quarter-finals on EURO 2016, France host Iceland at Stade de France, in Paris. Read below betting preview, useful info and betting predictions for the match between France vs Iceland.


France finished the group phase on EURO 2016 without defeat and eliminated Republic of Ireland 2-1 in the 1/8 finals. In the Quarter-finals they shouldn’t have many problems to eliminated Iceland, but it won’t be an easy job because Icelanders playing very organized and made amazing results, so far. France had many problems against Ireland, they were losing at the half-time, but they have improved their performance in the second half and managed to eliminate them. Iceland are much more organized team and if France underestimate them, they could be in trouble. Talking about their opponent, Didier Deschamps, France coach said: “Physically they are very strong and we’ll have to battle for the ball.

Iceland showed that they are not in France just to be a part of EURO. They finished the group phase at the second position and in the 1/8 finals Iceland eliminated England 2-1 and made the biggest surprise on this tournament, so far. If they manage to reach the Semi-finals and eliminate home national team, it would be an amazing result. But, Iceland have already showed that they know how to do that. They are still without defeat on European Championship and they will be fully motivated to make another good result. “Most important for us is that we go out tomorrow and believe we can beat them. If we have that attitude, I think we can cause them some problems.” – said their joint-coach Lars Lagerbäck.
