With tonight game of France vs Romania yet to kick off, I have begun to write up tomorrow’s tips a little early in order to fully enjoy the game tonight! 3 intriguing fixtures, England vs Russia, Wales vs Slovakia and Albania vs Switzerland. There isn’t much I fancy on the England game, so a duo of bets today in the other two:
Albania vs Switzerland: Switzerland Win to Nil @ 7/5 (Group A, 1400 KO)
Albania are a tough nut to crack – and although their qualifying was thrown about a bit with all of the issues between them and Serbia, they did well to beat Portugal and deny Denmark what was a probable place at this summer competition. Switzerland also had a tougher time than they were expecting – losing to Slovenia and ending up in a very uncomfortable position, but eventually secured 2nd spot and an automatic route to France.
Although they failed to inspire, they have a very good team and one I feel Albania will really struggle to get anything from. Weather it’s 1-0, 2-0 or more – I don’t think the debutants will score, while I believe the Swiss will just about manage a win. Win to Nil a good price @ 7/5
Wales vs Slovakia: BTTS @ 11/8 (Group B, 1700 KO)
This one (+ Over 2.5 Goals) is in my accumulator tip for the first set of games, but for today I’m just going for the BTTS @ 11/8. Both will know a win here will almost certainly see them into 3rd, and depending on how England/Russia plays out, potentially 2nd. Both for me will be going for the win, and Slovakia have the better overall team – the likes of Hamsik, Mak, Weiss and Stoch will cause all sorts of problems for Wales. Equally for the home nations side, Bale will be a huge threat from set plays.
On the goalscorer front – I quite like Hamsik A/T + Slovakia to win @ 5/1.
The double pays around 4.7/1!
Best of luck
