Wednesday, 15.06.2016 at 21:00 o’clock
The host is the favourite again
When France meets Romania at the opening match of the EURO 2016 the host is the clear favourite, the same as at their second match against the EURO beginner Albania. Everything less than a full success of Pogba & Co would be a real sensation. Kick-off on the 15th of June is at 9 p.m..
Current performance of France
France is in a festive mood right now. The reason for this are the latest results. At the last four matches the team from Didier Deschamps was able to celebrate a success and knew how to convince at the offensive. In these four matches they have scored 13 goals. The rehearsal match for the EURO has been won with a clear score of 3:0 against Scotland. Some people already talk about a “golden generation” of France. Especially players like Antoine Griezmann, Paul Pogba or Anthony Martial make it to the golden generation. Indeed there are a lot of young players in the squad of the world champion from 1998. Five players are 23 years old or even younger. Therefore there is not even a place in the squad for Franck Ribery. Before the match against Scotland they also have beaten the Cameroon (3:2) and Russia (4:2). One disadvantage is that central defender Raphael Varane is not able to play. Another question is if the team can handle the big pressure playing the EURO at home.
Current performance of Albania
In the group A Albania only can surprise. Especially at the match against France the team of the Italian coach Giovanni de Biasi is the clear outsider. For the EURO beginner the match against the Switzerland is more important or rather winning the match is more important. If they able to win they gain a lot of self-esteem and therefore have more power for the match against France. But if you take a look at the latest results it will be difficult to keep up with the French team. Even when they have been able to win two out of three international matches their rivals have not been Scotland and Russia, their rivals have been Qatar and Luxembourg. In addition they also have lost against another EURO starter, the Ukraine, with a score of 3:1 and have nearly been without a chance. An interesting fact is that even though they are the clear outsider in this match, they have won the last encounter. This happened almost exactly one year ago. On the 13th of June 2015 they have won with a score of 1:0. This is definitely a psychological support for the team.
Betting tip for this match

So we think that the favourite team in this match will fulfil his demands and win this match. That’s why our tip is: Tip 1.
