Heavy Fave France Has Never Lost to Iceland

Antoine Griezmann France Euro 2016

Iceland has been one of – if not the – great stories of Euro 2016. Coming off a 2-1 win over England, Iceland is a heavy, heavy underdog in their next contest, which comes against the host nation at the Stade de France Sunday.

SHARK BITES
  • France is unbeaten in their last seven matches with six wins and one draw.
  • Iceland has scored 10 goals in its last 10 matches.
  • Adil Rami and N’Golo Kanté wil miss out for France due to suspension.

Iceland, which has been a massive underdog before, is currently +700 in moneyline markets at online shop Bovada while France comes in at -225 and the Draw at +335. As far as the spread is concerned, France is a 1-goal favorite at -140 while Iceland is +115 in the role of underdog. The total is tabbed at 2.5 with OVER at +115 and UNDER at -140.

France, who has played fine thus far at Euro 2016 but certainly hasn’t blown anyone away, has a spotless record against Iceland in career head-to-head meetings. In 11 all-time contests between the two nations, France has won eight times and drawn three. The last time the two played, France triumphed 3-2 in a friendly back in May of 2010.

Iceland shocked the world by qualifying for Euro 2016 and has proved that qualification was no fluke as they trumped England 2-1 in the Round of 16. Iceland is happy to absorb pressure and averages the least amount of chances on goal of any team left with just 7.25 attempted shots per game and averages just 35 percent ball possession which is the lowest of any of the 24 team at Euro 2016.

France is here because of a 2-1 win over Ireland in the Round of 16. Les Bleus were actually down 1-0 in that game before Antoine Griezmann bagged two goals to give his team the win.
