The opening game of Euro 2016 will be the hosts on Friday night when France play Romania at the Stade De France, the match is live on ITV 1 at 8pm. You can read or full France vs Romania betting preview which includes some facts about both teams, key players for both nations and their upcoming fixtures.


France v Romania First Goalscorer Prediction


France head into this game on the back of four consecutive wins which is the perfect preparation before hosting the Euros and being the favourites to win the tournament, I’m sure the players and the fans will be hyped for the opening game on Friday night.  Romania thrashed Georgia 5-1 in their final warm up game and shown that they can find the net. I’m sure this will give them a massive confidence boost before playing a nervy first game against the hosts.


A first goalscorer tip for any teams opening game is usually a tough one as you don’t know for sure what the manager is thinking about his starting 11. France have a couple of different candidates to play in the final third. I personally think Giroud is going to start for the French as he played a key part in both warm up games with three goals in the two games including an extremely well taken volley from the dream assist provided by Pogba.

Griezmann is odds favorite in the France v Romania first goalscorer market and definitely has to be considered as he has been labelled the one to watch for the French this summer. Arguably there are a few to watch including Payet, Pogba and Martial which makes it that bit more difficult to select a first goalscorer!


You also can’t disregard Romania scoring first. They’ve netted eight times in the last two games and have shown they can be a threat in the final third. I think that they could be a trickier task for the French than most may expect and France consistently leak goals at the back conceding eight times in the last five games. The Romanian first goalscorers start from Bogdan Stancu being the shortest at 16/1 so an outside shout at them odds may be worth a punt. Remember when Croatia shocked World Cup 2014 hosts Brazil with the first goal (albeit an own goal)?

However, I think with the opening game being in Paris in front of a revved up crowd, the French will dominate the game and give Romania very little to work with. I think that they will break the deadlock with Olivier Giroud beingmu France vs Romania first goalscorer tip for the hosts as he did last weekend against Scotland. The Arsenal man is in fine form for his country and playing in the central role, he is definitely worth a punt. Olivier Giroud to score first vs Romania is currently best priced with Coral at 4/1.
