June 25, Parc des Princes, Paris. Betting Preview, Odds And Tips
At the beginning of Euro 2016, people were astonished by the number of British teams which qualified. Although many people backed England to do well and Ireland to maybe provide some surprises, the same people put Wales and Northern Ireland among the teams which almost surely won’t produce any sparks and will leave the tournament early. Oh, how wrong they were.
Online Betting Odds At European Betting Sites:
Wales 2.05 or 21/20 Draw 3.00 or 2/1 N. Ireland 5.00 or 4/1
Wales won group B, with 6 points from 3 games. They won 2-1 against Slovakia and 3-0 against Russia and only lost thanks to a 90th-minute goal against England. Not only are their results impressive, their game is also top-quality.
They produced wonderful team goals as well as individual executions, and Gareth Bale seems on top on his form. If they continue playing as well as they do, it will be hard for any team to stop them.
And the first team which will attempt to stop them is Northern Ireland. Although they finished first in their qualification group, they showed clear weaknesses in their debut game against Poland.
They managed a crucial win in day 2 against Ukraine, and with those 3 points, they managed to secure 3rd place and book tickets for the knockout stages in their first participation in a major tournament.
This tie is, without a doubt, one of the most surprising of this year’s tournament, featuring two teams which “nobody” backed to exit their groups. Now, one of them will advance to the Quarter Finals, and the other will sadly end its adventure here. In this British derby, we fancy Wales as the winner.
They are the better team and should do well against their neighbors. They also have multiple ways of scoring goals – from free kicks, team efforts, set plays or even individual quality, while their opponents only rely on counter attacks and set plays.
Either way, we will see the most important Wales – N. Ireland game in history. What was usually a friendly or a game for 4th of 5th place in a qualification group is now in the round of 16 at Euro 2016.
Betting Tip: Bale to Score & Wales to Win in 90 mins – 4.00 or 3/1
