Euro 2016

Hungary v Portugal

Group F is very much still in the balance with all four teams capable of qualifying if results go their way in the final round of matches.

Portugal have not played well so far in the tournament and go in this match knowing that only a victory will ensure them a place in the knock out stages. Ronaldo has been uncharacteristically poor, including missing a penalty in their last match towards the end, and Portugal need him to really step up to the plate if they are to progress.

Hungary currently top the group and a point will be enough to see them through. They can actually even qualify with a loss so are in a nice position. They had an excellent opening win against Austria who came through qualifying extremely impressively and followed that up with a late equaliser against Iceland.

I think the big players for Portugal will turn up for this must win match and they will have too much for Hungary and take the three points which will see them through.

 

Iceland v Austria

Austria came into this tournament with a reputation as potential dark horses given their hugely impressive qualifying campaign. They haven't lived up to that reputation so far and need to win this last match to have a chance of making it to the knockout stages. I am hoping that they show how good they can be today and if they do, I think they will be comfortable winners against a limited Iceland team.
