Austria take on Iceland in the Euro 2016 clash at the Stade de France in Paris, on Wednesday, 22 June.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is at 5pm BST. BBC Red Button will provide live coverage of the match in the United Kingdom.


Austria's campaign has been very disappointing thus far in the Euros with Bayern Munich's David Alaba and Stoke City's Marko Arnautovic struggling to have any impact in the competition. They lost 2-0 to Hungary in their opening game and followed that up with a stalemate against Portugal, leaving them in a very precarious position going into the game.

Anything less than a win will make their position untenable and confirm their departure from the group stages, especially with Portugal also competing against Hungary in the other game with all to play for.

Meanwhile, Iceland have managed to avoid defeat this tournament and know that only a point could be enough to see them into the next round while a win will see them make a case for topping the group. Iceland, with a population of about 330,000, are the smallest country ever to qualify for the European championship, but have managed to hold Hungary and Portugal to 1-1 draws in the tournament, a commendable feat for a team getting their first taste of a major tournament.

Goalkeeper Hannes Halldorsson has made more saves than any other keeper and is a key figure in Iceland's bid to progress further in the competition. The stats show that Iceland had to dig very deep to keep themselves in contention while having an average possession of only 33%, less than any other team in the Euros.
