Euro 2016: England vs Russia

England vs Russia Betting Tip and Predictions. In the the most interesting match on Sunday in group B, on EURO 2016, England take on Russia at Stade Vélodrome, Marseille. Read below betting preview, useful info and betting predictions for the match between England vs Russia.


England qualified directly on EURO 2016 after they finished at the first position in the group phase of the qualifications for this competition. They are the main candidate to reach the 1/8 finals from this group and of the candidates to win this competition. English side finished the qualifications for EURO 2016 at the 1st position with all 10 wins. Amazing. In the preparing period for this competition England played three friendly matches and they won in it all. First, England beat Turkey 2-1, after that they took another win against Australia 2-1, while in the last test game they weren’t impressive, but at the end they scored against Portugal for the final 1-0. Everyone expect their good performance and to reach at least 1/2 finals. Roy Hodgson have very good attackers and he will be able to choose between few great players. Jamie Vardy, Harry Kane, Wayne Rooney, Sturridge, Sterling and Rashford are all candidates to lead the attack, but for sure they all won’t be able to be together on the pitch. England have very strong and quality squad and they are favorites to beat Russia the first game, but they will have to prove in on the pitch.

Russia reached the EURO 2016 after they finished at the second position in their qualification group. They played only two games in the preparation period and failed to win, so the atmosphere is not at the high level, but despite that fact they believe that can make good performance on this competition and qualify in the 1/8 finals. In the first test game they lost against Czech Republic 1-2, while in the second game the match between Russia vs Serbia was finished without winner 1-1. If they want to take at least one point against England they will have to improve their performance. They have quality players, but I’m a little bit suspicious about their performance in France and I won’t be surprised if they fail to reach the next phase of this competition.
