France v Albania Free Bets | Euro 2016

France May Need Time To See Off Albania.

Based on the pre-tournament France v Albania betting odds, this should be the most one-sided match of the group games so you can get your best return on Euro 2016 free bets.

 

For Albania, qualifying for the finals and appearing at this level is already as much as they could have realistically hoped for at the start of the qualification process.

It’s unlikely that Albania will be whipping boys here though, as coach Gianni de Biasi will have his team well-organised.  Their aim will be to get men behind the ball and to frustrate France for as long as possible and hope to make the most of whatever scraps they get to feed off on the counter-attack or from set-pieces.

In six previous games, France has won four, one was drawn and Albania has one victory to their name.  The latter two results are the most recent though, with France being drawn in the same ‘Euro 2016 qualifying group’ as Albania in order to get some match practice in ‘centralised friendlies’ ahead of the finals.  Albania drew 1-1 in Rennes, then won 1-0 on home turf in Elbasan.  It’s fair to say that France will probably be more up for this game though.

France should certainly dominate possession, but that won’t unduly concern Albania.  What could eventually prove to be a factor is both physical and mental tiredness from spending so much time having to defend and France could find a few gaps to exploit as the game develops.

As a result, this could be a game where most of the goal action takes place after the interval and it could be worth looking at the second-half as the highest scoring half with any France v Albania free bets, or perhaps France winning to nil.
