The host nation France will be in action for the second time in this tournament as they take on the Albanians. For Albania this will be a very tough game while the French will know that if they fail to win this match then the media storm will be a lot worse than South Africa 2010.
France won their first game but I don’t think they played very well. This team was slow with their build up play and other than Dmitri Payet, know body else was creating any chances. This needs to change as the tournament progresses but I think a performance like the opening one will be enough to win this game. This French team is a mile above Albania so I think they will coast home.
Albania will have gotten some confidence from their opening game since they played a very good game. This time around it will be a lot tougher and I can see them getting blown away. The French are super strong and will want to put on a show and I think Albania might lose by quite a few goals in this encounter. It is important to note that a loss here might still allow Albania to qualify since in the majority of groups, the top 3 teams will get through.
As far as betting is concerned, there is no value in betting on France since the odds are way too short. That being said, the over 2.5 goals bet is quite attractive considering that France might score 3 or 4 goals themselves. This is a great option to place a big bet since I think France win 3-0 or more in many occasions here so we can really make good use of this market.
