EURO 2016 BETTING TIPS & PREVIEWS

14:00 RUSSIA - SLOVAKIA

England received a lot of criticism for their 1-1 draw against Russia. As expected, Roy Hodgson's men controlled possession and were the better side, but Russia have to also be given a bit of credit for their performance. People thought their defenders were too old and slow to handle better sides in the tournament, but against England they performed rather convincingly.

Slovakia edged attempts on goal in their opening match against Wales 13-11, but in terms of shots on target they trailed 8-2. A better result was there for the taking, but the 2-1 victory for the Welsh was certainly no travesty. This time out the Slovakians have a lot more work to do if they're to break down Russia's defence. Slovakia played with their hearts on their sleeves against Wales, earning five yellow cards in the process. Their physical tactics are hard to play against, but they also leave them exposed to bookings and red cards.  

Slovakia's superstar Marek Hamsik showcased his ability a couple of times against Wales, most impressively when he ran through the entire Welsh defence on his own. However, unfortunately he was denied by a goal-line clearance at the last second and Wales took all three points. Most of Slovakia's attacks come through Hamsik, so he'll have a big role if they're to succeed in breaking Russia down.

On Russia's side we could highlight the duo of Dzyuba-Kokorin, who were almost invisible against England - mostly due to Russia's defensive tactics. We expect that against Slovakia the duo will have a lot more freedom to play, so the two can link up much more often than they managed in the opening game. If Slovakia continue to concede a lot of free-kicks, the tall Dzyuba will have a lot of opportunities to get on the end of crosses.

Special Bets:

Goalscorer: Dzyuba 19/10 Unibet

Goalscorer: Hamsik 16/5 Unibet

* Will get an assist: Hamsik 9/2 Unibet

Slovakia total amount of cards: Over 2.5 32/25 Unibet

BETTING TIP

Russia were slightly lucky to get a point against England. The difference in quality between the sides is only small, and Slovakia have some surprisingly good odds available, and they should definitely be taken advantage of. However, the most interesting option is double chance x2, where even a draw means you win!

** 1x2: Slovakia 47/20 Unibet / Leo Vegas

 

17:00 ROMANIA - SWITZERLAND

Switzerland beat Albania "only" 1-0 in their opening game of Euro 2016, even though they played against 10 men for two thirds of the match. The Swiss managed to create a lot of scoring chances, but for some reason they didn't seem to have their shooting boots on. Albania also had a great chance to equalize at the death, which serves to underline the vulnerability of Switzerland's defence. Romania's counter-attacks will most likely be far more dangerous than Albania's.

As expected, Romania's back-line played fairly aggressively against France, with 35-year old veteran centre-back Razvan Rat particularly struggling to keep up with the pace. They will likely continue in the same manner against the Swiss, although Switzerland's forwards aren't quite on France's level. However, it must also be noted that the Romanians managed to create a couple of chances of their own, despite playing with their backs against the wall for most of the match. 

Romania will surely continue from where they left off against France. Although they did lose that time out, their performance was encouraging enough to offer hope for their tournament progression. Meanwhile, Switzerland were slightly disappointing against Albania, so if the Romanians manage to even slightly improve from their performance against the French, they have more than a slim chance of picking up points.

Switzerland are still the clear favourites on Wednesday despite their lacklustre performance against Albania. It's hard to highlight a single player from the Swiss camp, but Xherdan Shaqiri does have a big role in their attack. The Stoke-man is responsible for most of Switzerland's set-pieces, and he assisted their only goal in the tournament so far. More of the same can be expected in the rest of Switzerland's matches.

Special Bets:

Will be booked or sent off: Razvan Rat 7/5 Unibet

* Over 2.5 yellow cards for Romania 37/25 Unibet

Goalscorer: Shaqiri 33/10 Unibet

Will get an assist: 23/10 Unibet

BETTING TIPS:

Switzerland are slightly overrated by the bookies. Romania may well grab at least a draw from the match. It's unlikely that there'll be a lot of goals, which further enhances the likelihood of a draw. If you're feeling bold, you can go straight for a draw - we've put our faith in the slightly more likely double chance 1x.

20:00 FRANCE - ALBANIA

The star-studded French weren't at their best in their opening match against Romania, but they still managed to grab a crucial three points by winning 2-1. This will have been a huge relief to a team under massive expectations, and now France can carry on with their tournament without quite so much pressure. Romania are the best team in the group defensively, but France still managed to create a lot of scoring chances. On Wednesday their task will be slightly easier, as Albania don't have anywhere near the defensive resilience that Romania do.

Albania shot themselves in the foot in their opening game against Switzerland, as captain Lorik Cana was sent off on the 36th minute. Despite that early setback, they performed well and kept the score at 1-0 and almost managed to equalize at the death. However, this will be a different challenge altogether as France are on a different level to the other teams in their group, meaning that Albania will most likely have to resort to fouls yet again. Against the Swiss the Albanians picked up 5 bookings, and France will not be merciful if they fall to 10 men again.

France will try to overload the Albanian's defence and striker Olivier Giroud will get chances. Dimitri Payet was in incredible from against Romania, and he's shown no signs of slowing down all season. Payet deliveres nearly all of France's set-pieces, and he'll most likely get to try a lot of free-kicks against Albania.

Special Bets:

Goalscorer: Giroud 19/20 Unibet

Goalscorer: Payet 7/5 Unibet

* Albania over 2.5 cards: 43/50 Unibet

France's previous matches:

10.6.2016 France - Romania 2-1 (Euro 2016)

4.6.2016 France - Scotland 3-0 (friendly)

30.5.2016 France - Cameroon 3-2 (friendly)

Albania's previous matches:

11.6.2016 Albania - Switzerland 0-1 (Euro 2016)

3.6.2016 Albania - Ukraine 1-3 (friendly)

29.5.2016 Albania - Qatar 3-1 (friendly)

BETTING TIP

France are naturally huge favourites to win, but the odds have gotten slightly out of hand. The handicap-odds for the underdogs are especially good. France will more likely than not win, but we think that a mauling is unlikely. Albania +2.5 and Albania +1.5 are more than viable betting options for Wednesday's late fixture.

** Albania +2.5 12/25 Unibet

* Albania +1.5 123/100 Unibet / ComeOn!
