France claimed top spot in Group A with seven points and they are strong favourites at 4/9 (BetVictor) to beat a Republic of Ireland side who really have little to lose.
The Irish earned a place in the last sixteen thanks to a victory against Italy, with Martin O’Neill now looking for his side to be robust again. Ladbrokes go 16/5 about the game ending all square.
The Republic are a 10/1 chance with Stan James to bring back memories of USA 1994, with another 1-0 victory chalked up at 14/1 (bet365). There could be nerves in the home camp should they fail to score an early goal.
Back France to win and both teams to score at 4/1 with bet365
