Euro 2016: France vs Romania

France vs Romania Betting Tip and Predictions. In the opening match of EURO 2016, France will host Romania at Stade de France. Read below betting preview, useful info and betting predictions for the match between France vs Romania.


France are the host of EURO 2016 and they are one of the main candidates to win this competition. In 2016 they have played four friendly matches and won all of them. Against Netherlands 2-3, after they beat Russia 4-2, after that Cameroon 3-2, while in the latest test match France beat Scotland 3-0. Interesting fact is that they scored on each game at least three goals, so we can expect that they will score many goals on the upcoming EURO 2016. Without any doubt, France are big favorites to win the opening match on this competition and beat Romania. This is the first game and they are little bit under pressure, but for them is the most important thing to take all three points. Giroud, who scored scored three goals in the last friendly matches, exploded and he could be the most dangerous player for Romanian’s defence.

Romania qualified on this competition after they finished at the second position in Group F in qualifications. Interesting fact is that they didn’t lose at all, won 5 games, while 5 matches were finished without winner (5-5-0). They know that France are favorites to win this tournament and this game as well, but Romania have nothing to lose and they will do their best in order to stay unbeaten. They have played three friendly games before the EURO 2016 start, but they weren’t impressive. The friendly game against D.R. Congo was finished without winner 1-1, after that Ukraine beat them 4-3, while in the last test Romania smashed Georgia 5-1. In the qualifications they conceded only two goals on 10 matches. Their defence is very good, but against strong teams they have a problem to secure their net, so if would be hard for them in the first match of group.
