czech republic croatia betting tips As we forecasted the Romanians secured a point against Switzerland, in retrospect Romania likely should have lost. Despite jumping out to an early lead, Romania would concede an equalizer to Switzerland early in the second half by way of Swiss star Admir Mehmedi. Switzerland for all intent and purposes outplayed Romania but they had to play the role of the comeback kids to escape defeat. The Romanians were outshot by the Swiss 19 to 14 with 7 shots going on target for the Swiss and 6 for the Romanians. For Romania, they were bitten by some hard luck as one rocket went off the woodwork which may have been the deciding factor in this fixture. Despite Romania having Switzerland on the ropes, the writing was on the wall that the Swiss would find their way back in. Switzerland completed 81% of their passes while retaining possession 61% of the time. This was a far more convincing offensive attack by the Swiss after they seemed to be besieged by the Albanians in their opening fixture where Switzerland retained possession just 10% more than Albania despite having a one man advantage. It is hard to decipher how Albania will approach this contest. Albania is perhaps the most snake-bitten dog in this entire tournament. Albania was basically at level pegging with Switzerland for all but five minutes of their opening contest with the Swiss and they were defeated in stoppage time by the favorite of the tournament France in contest that was far closer than the score line indicates. With this being said, Albania may enter this fixture with a chip on their shoulder or they may be utterly demoralized from a slew of bitter losses that could have easily resulted in two points for Albania, while also shaking up the entire tournament field. For Romania, the Romanians need the points and they too in their own right may feel a bit slighted entering this contest. Romania was defeated in the 89th minute by France in their opening fixture and let up a lead to the Swiss resulting in one point. If Romania wins this contest outright they will have four points and France puts Switzerland on the chopping block, Romania can finish runner-up and advance to the next stage. These variables weighed and measured make this match a very volatile play for any punter hoping to wager on either side. The edge would likely lay with Romania but with just above even odds, we have no interest in playing on a proxy favorite with a shaky track record in this EURO group stage so far. Conversely, we had the opportunity to take back Albania at 20/1 against France in their second fixture, now we will have to settle for just over 2:1. While Albania may have a strong chance at defeating Romania, the market says they are ten times more likely to do so in comparison to France. Either Albania was the respondent of several overlays or they are overvalued in this fixture themselves, either which way we will stay off.
