England play Russia in the opening Euro 2016 fixture for both teams and our Euro 2016 betting tipster has picked out a couple of early bets for the match.
With the domestic season now over its time to swiftly divert our attention to the European Championships and England v Russia. Luckily for the England fans, the first game against Russia will be on Saturday 11th June 8pm kick off on ITV1 which is the second day of the competition.
England will be looking to get off to the perfect start in Group B and this is arguably going to be the most difficult group game against a strong Russia side who are underrated by many. With so much talk of this England squad being the start of a new and exciting era with plenty of fresh faces, it’s intriguing to see how this team will react to the pressure that has ruined many previous England sides.
Many England fans will be expecting the side to get off to a good start and take an early three points from Russia. It won’t be easy but it’s definitely achievable as many supporters follow England to this tournament with higher expectations than the last few competitions. I also think England are capable of getting off to the perfect start but I am not expecting the most exciting game. Putting friendlies aside, Russia like to keep a solid defence and work from the back and I expect them to show this again as they will be aware of the goals in the England side. However, I still think England will be able to pinch a low scoring win for my predictions on the match.
My first Euro 2016 prediction for England vs Russia is going to be England to win and under 2.5 goals. Although England need to tighten up the defence to make his happen, I’m sure Roy will address this and work on it from now till then. The best odds for this are currently 13/5 with Stan James.

Following this, I will back the bet up with an England vs Russia correct score prediction – 1-0 to England would be worth a punt at much higher value than 13/5. I think a Jamie Vardy or Harry Kane goal could be all the difference for England in the opening fixture and I’m sure the players will be well aware that getting the three points is the number one priority in the opener to settle the nerves and put the side in a great position to progress to the next round. The best odds for England to win 1-0 are currently 11/2 with Bet Victor.
