England vs Russia – UEFA Euro 2016 – Betting Preview

Posted on by Sreya

England open their UEFA Euro 2016 campaign against Russia at Stade Velodrome, 11th June, Saturday. Drawn in Group B alongside Slovakia and Wales, England are expected to make a deep run into this summer’s competition, with anything less than a quarter-final appearance sure to be classified as a disappointment.

England qualified with a hundred percent record, winning all ten matches. Roy Hodgson’s side – with youth and vivacity bubbling through them have turned heads and solidified their claims to be an elite squad by registering wins against Germany and Portugal in recent international friendlies.

Russia, on the other hand, are going through a transitional phase and are looking to find their feet in the conundrum of international football after a few disappointing years at major tournament finals.

Team News

England has a completely healthy squad but Denis Glushakov (muscle strain) and Torbinski (illness) are doubtful for the Russian side.

England Possible Starting Lineup: Joe Hart, Kyle Walker, Chris Smalling, Gary Cahill, Danny Rose, Eric Dier, Dele Alli, Raheem Sterling, Wayne Rooney, Adam Lallana, Harry Kane.

Russia Possible Starting Lineup: Igor Akinfeev, Igor Smolnikov, Sergei Ignashevich, Vasili Berezutsky, Georgy Schennikov, Oleg Shatov, Roman Neustadter, Aleksandr Golovin, Aleksandr Kokorin, Artem Dzeyuba, Fedor Smolov.

Thoughts From Both Camps

“We’ve got qualities, there is no doubt about that – the fact we are so inexperienced in age and number of caps can’t possibly be seen as an advantage, but the lack of experience we have in the team is counteracted in some way by the youth, energy and enthusiasm of a group of players keen to do well.”

– Roy Hodgson, England Manager.

“I know there is a lot of responsibility with the whole country watching and I would like us to play good football tomorrow and for them to get the result they want.”

– Leonld Slutski, Russia Manager.

Contributor’s Pick

According to Head-2-Head statistics, the last two meeting between these two nations have resulted in a win apiece.

England have not lost over 90 or 120 minutes in 22 EURO fixtures (including qualifiers), going back to a 3-2 defeat by Croatia in November 2007 – since then their record is seventeen wins and five draws, although they were beaten on penalties by Italy in the UEFA EURO 2012 quarter-finals.

The odds for an England win are at 1.96, a draw 3.30 and a Russia win 4.88. The Three Lions are likely to win by a 2-0 scoreline.
