France v Romania tips – Les Bleus could win by a narrow margin
France might have to be patient to break down a Romania side who will be on the defensive
June 7th, 2016
France are the pre-tournament favourites to win Euro 2016 and they have been handed an opener against a dour and defensive side who would love to claim a draw from this clash.
Romania qualified by keeping things tight and the same approach will be adopted against a lively Bleus team who are dripping with attacking quality although they have little experience of trying to break down teams like this.
Paul Pogba and Blaise Matuidi will keep the engine ticking, with Dimitri Payet and Antoine Griezmann supplying ammunition from out wide and Olivier Giroud is coming into a bit of form.
It might be a game of patience for France although their defence shouldn’t be too busy, even if Laurent Koscielny is now paired with Adil Rami after injury beset Raphael Varane.
Take a punt on France to win the game but not until after half-time.
