Belgium vs Republic of Ireland Preview

Belgium really need a confidence-boosting win after their 2-0 defeat to Italy and this looks like a good place to get it. The Republic of Ireland ground out a decent 1-1 draw against Sweden but that was a very mediocre match and the Belgians will be a completely different proposition.

Picks?

We have to go for Belgian players from attacking positions; the midfield will see plenty of the ball and we foresee more than one goal for them. They can concede though so think twice about defenders.

Iceland vs Hungary Preview

These two teams have been the surprise packages of Group F; Iceland earned an excellent 1-1 draw against Portugal and Hungary brushed aside a fancied Austria side 2-0 with a very competent display. The bookies think this will be a pretty even game and we’re inclined towards a low-scoring draw.

Iceland DWLWL 1 1
Hungary WLDDW 2 0

 

Picks?

Hungary will see plenty of the ball so Hungarian midfielders are a decent shout; attackers from both teams are cheap options so should be considered.

Portugal vs Austria Preview

These two teams disappointed in their opening matches – Portugal drawing and Austria losing – so it’s the Austrians who will desperate to get things back on track with a win. However this will be a tough match against a decent Portuguese side and Cristiano Ronaldo will surely be far more effective than he was against the Icelanders. Portugal are odds-on favourites for the win and we’re inclined to agree with that.

  Form All Games Last 5  Average Goals Scored  Average Goals Conceded
Portugal DWLWW 1 1
Austria LLWLW 0 2

 

Picks?

We picked the very expensive Ronaldo in the first match and it was a waste so we’re reticent about picking him again; however you will need Portuguese players so make your selection accordingly.
