Portugal vs Iceland Betting Tip and Predictions. In the second match in Group F, on EURO 2016, Portugal take on Iceland at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard, Saint-Étienne. Read below betting preview, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Portugal vs Iceland.
Portugal qualified on this EURO 2016 after they finished at the first position in their qualifying group. They are the main candidate to reach the next phase of this competition, because they don’t have some strong national teams in their group (Iceland, Austria and Hungary). The match against Iceland will be their first on EURO and they want to take all three points and make one step forward to the 1/8 finals. In the last test match before the EURO, Portugal smashed Estonia 7-0 and the atmosphere in squad is great. Cristiano Ronaldo and Quaresma hit the net 2 times each and these two players could be the most dangerous players for Iceland’s defence. Portugal have already played against Iceland in the qualifications for EURO 2012 and Portugal beat them twice (5-3, 1-3).
