Live on ITV1: Mon 17.00: Given the contrasting states in which both teams enter the match, it seems odd that France are as big as 13/8 at Paddy Power to come out on top as they face England in the pair’s opening Euro 2012 fixture in Donetsk.
BetVictor quote Roy Hodgson’s charges at 21/10 to make a flying start in Group D but the best they can probably hope for against an in-form French outfit is a share of the spoils, a result Skybet rate at 11/5. Sadly though, when pushing patriotism aside, it’s easy to see the patched-up Three Lions losing this one and Ladbrokes make Les Bleus 7/2 to shade it by a one-goal margin.
Without Wayne Rooney spearheading their attack Hodgson’s men could actually struggle to score and punters could do worse than consider Skybet’s massive 3/1 for Laurent Blanc’s side to win ‘to nil’.
