Switzerland vs France Betting Tips



Switzerland vs France – Group A  – 8pm (BBC) – 18.06.16 – Stade Pierre Mauroy, Lille

France have left it late to secure victory in each of their two games so far, but a win is a win is a win.

Antoine Griezmann and then man-of-the-moment Dimitri Payet both netted in injury time to beat Albania 2-0 and send the host country through to the round of 16.

That win means Saturday”s result is relatively unimportant to Les Blues as even a draw will see them through as group winners.

But Switzerland only sit two points behind France and, with Group B still undecided, they would naturally rather qualify as group leaders and avoid the winners of that group.

La Nati will be mindful that a loss could see Romania leapfrog them into second and, as a match between next door neighbours, both sides will be fired up for the win.

Recommendation: France to win and both teams to score at 5.00
