The Euros are here! The first game of the tournament sees hosts France take on Romania in Group A, with Didier Deschamps and his men hopeful they can continue their record of winning competitions on home soil. They head into this as one of the favourites to lift the trophy and will be looking for a win against a side who seem to have found their shooting boots of late. Romania had an excellent defensive record in qualifying, only conceding twice in their 10 games, but goals were a little harder to come by. In their last two friendlies though they've scored eight goals, so they're playing into form just at the right time and shouldn't be taken lightly. Get 6/1 for France to be in the Euro 2016 final when you open a new Ladbrokes account.
Karim Benzema is one high profile omission from the French squad so Olivier Giroud should continue up front after netting three in his last two friendlies. Antoine Griezmann and West Ham's Dimitri Payet should also be in the France starting line-up against Romania in Paris.

Romania may not be highly thought of in terms of going far in this competition but they have some solid players, with captain Vlad Chiriches one example. They've broken into Fifa's top 20 ranked sides for the first time in a decade and this will be a tougher game for France than the odds of 3/10 for the French win suggest. I do think France will get off to a winning start, but with Romania's excellent defensive record I can't see many in this one. My first France vs Romania prediction is France to win and under 2.5 goals in the match, the best odds are with Stan James who are offering 7/4.
Back to Olivier Giroud. One of the most frustrating players ever to pull on an Arsenal shirt, booed by his own national side's fans, but still he's tough to rule out hitting the back of the net. He's scored seven in his last four games for club and country and I'm backing him to continue that run here. My second France vs Romania betting tip is for Giroud to score first, the best odds of 4/1 you'll find with Coral.

I'm going into the half-time/full-time market for my final tip and predicting that this will be a draw at half-time and a France win at full-time. I think Romania will keep it tight, and despite their goal-laden performances in their last two friendlies when they attack their defensive discipline goes awry, as seen in the 4-3 defeat to Ukraine, so I can't see them taking too many risks. Instead, I think they'll frustrate the hosts and be tough to break down but eventually France will do just that. My third France v Romania prediction for the Euro 2016 opening match is a draw half-time France win full-time, the best odds are with Bet Victor who are offering 29/10.
