England U21 6/4 to beat France U21 in Tuesday’s European Championships opener
Competition: U21 European Championship
Market: England U21 win
Odds: 6/4 @ Bet 365
Two sides who are looking to get their Group C campaign off to a winning start, England will meet France in their opening fixtures on Tuesday night.
Starting with England, after marching through qualifying and also enjoy a successful build-up to their opening Group C fixture, the mood in the Three Lions’ camp will be on a high. Unbeaten in their 10 qualification matchups and winning eight of those contests, the Whites have also now lost just one of their last 20 appearances across all competitions. Despite failing to record a clean sheet in any of their previous four outings, England have continued to shine on the road. The Whites are enjoying a six-match winning run outside of London and have scored two or more goals in each of those victories.
As for France, while Les Bleus may have also marched through their qualifying campaign, they have endured a worrying run entering the tournament. Despite also marching through unbeaten on route to booking their spot in the finals, they have won just one of their last six appearances, losing two and drawing three. Even more worrying for France, they have recorded just one win in their last four matches on the road, conceding seven goals on that run. Given their recent struggles heading into their Group C opener, we’re backing England to come away with the victory.
