NOT sure what was the biggest surprise – Iceland battling back to hold Portugal or Austria crashing to Hungary.
It was probably the latter to be honest because Portugal can’t be trusted and rely too much on Cristiano Ronaldo.
Today the smallest nation at the Euros and the one that had lowest possession in the first group of games (27.8%) tackle Hungary and Austria face Portugal.
Both look tough to call and I don’t think two draws would be a huge surprise. Bookies have made Iceland the favourites but Hungary deserve more respect and have won the last five meetings between the countries.
There’s not much between them and I can see a 1-1 draw so consider both teams to score at 6-5 at McBookie.
Goals have been a premium in many matches but I’m making the same call on the Portugal game. Both sides could do with a win so it should be an open affair and a score draw at 7-2 with BetBright is possible.
Portugal are 5-6 favourites at Ladbrokes with Austria as big as 21-5 with bet365. Not to lose the Austrians are 21-20 at bet365. Portugal will be looking for much more from Ronaldo and Austria likewise David Alaba and Marc Janko.
Ronaldo did a lot of talking after the Iceland match – now he needs to the walking too just like Real Madrid team-mate Gareth Bale.
