Portugal dominated large swathes of the first competitive meeting between the sides since 1995 but were almost caught out several times, in particular when Stefan Ilsanker forced a good save with a crisp low strike shortly after the restart.

The draw leaves Group F finely poised, with Hungary leading on four points, followed by Portugal and Iceland with two points each, with Austria one further behind.
