Betting tip EURO 2016: France - Ireland
Sunday, 26.06.2016 at 15:00
France is the clear favourite
The host of the EURO 2016 has fulfilled the expectations of their country and has won the group A. Ireland on the other side only made it just in time to eighth finals. So the roles at this match are clearly divided. Kick-off on the 26th of June is at 3 p.m..
Current performance of France
The french team is an expert for late goals in this EURO 2016 as well as against Romania, against Albania they scored all in all three goals at the end of the match. The match against the Switzerland ended as a goal less drawn even though they have shown their best performance in this match. Especially the offensive play seems to improve slowly. At the defence the missing of Raphael Varane was obvious. The rival of the eighth final probable will not make this match and therefore France can concentrate on the offensive play. We will see how the technical weakened French team can handle the always fighting Irish team. That they struggle against teams with a strong defence has already shown the matches against Romania and Albania. Another time a lot of pressure lies on Pogba & Co. Dropping out of the EURO because of Ireland would be a catastrophe for France.
Current performance of Ireland
On the last day of play Ireland fixed their promotion to the eighth finals. Responsible for this was Robbie Brady who scored a goal at the 85th minute against the Italian b-eleven and therefore the won match. Before they have scored only one point against Sweden (1:1) even though they have been the better team. Against Belgium they even had to suffer a defeat (3:0). At the match against France they are the clear underdog. The biggest advantage of the eleven of Martin O´Neill is that they can only surprise. Nobody expects an victory of the Irish team and therefore they can play without any pressure. One disadvantage could be the date of the play. While France had one week to pause, Ireland had their last play against Italy on Wednesday and does not have that much time to recovery. However the Irish team is famous for their physical strength. They will give everything against France as we are used to it from them. In addition they have the support of their incredible fans which may give them extra power.
Betting tip for this match
There is no question of who is the favourite in this match. However France also had some trouble to fulfil the demands. Ireland can play without any pressure because making it to the finals was already a big success due to their rivals in the group. We think that the host will win this match. Our tip: tip 1.
