Austria vs Iceland Predictions


Iceland had their best appearance in the tournament two days ago against Croatia. They demolished Austria earlier this month in a friendly match, so I will back them to claim points today.

  • Austria are winless in 4 of their last 5 matches.
  • Iceland beat Austria in their last 4 matches.

Head to Head


Iceland have a 10-3 advantage against Austria with 1 draw in 14 matches.

The most recent head to head duel was won by Iceland 37-30 earlier this month in a friendly match.

Austria Form


The Austrians are one of the most pleasant packages so far, starting the 2nd phase with a narrow 30-29 victory against Hungary and then holding the hosts Germany to a 22-22 draw. 

The most recent clash saw them lose convincingly to France 33-28 and lower the chances to reach the semi-finals.

Austria were successful in the group stages, easily beating the underdog Romania in the opening round 31-24. They broke the opposition in the second half 16-10, while the result after first 30 minutes was 15-14.  

They also did well in the second round against Croatia. Despite being tagged an underdog, the Austrians snatched a point of Blazers in that clash 28-28.  

Another draw was seen in the final match where they held favored Spain 33-33 and advanced to the 2nd phase. 

Iceland Form


Iceland are one of the biggest disappointments of the European Championship 2024 so far, winning just one of their three matches in the first phase.  

It started with a questionable 27-27 draw against Serbia where they scored equalizer in the last second. Iceland earned a narrow 31-30 victory in the second round against underdog Montenegro.  

Iceland got crushed in the third match by Hungary 33-25 despite being tagged a favorite, so they carried over zero points to the second phase.  

Things didn’t get any better in the second phase, suffering a 26-24 loss against Germany and then to France 39-32. The only points so far were secured in the most recent match against Croatia 35-30.

Verdict

Iceland defeated Austria in their last four head to head matches. I really enjoyed the way Iceland played against Croatia, so I will back them to earn another victory.
