France vs Romania by Marinos
The game will be played in «Stade de France» a ground that the national team of France has an excellent background the past few years 6-1-0 (in total of 32 , 21 /8/3).
Being the hosts of this years competition France qualified automatically,therefore in the past 2 years they had plenty of time for friendly games to test their strength and find the best players possible.
Even though coach Deschamps left out of the final squad world class caliber players like Benzema,Ben Arfa,Gameiro etc. France has probably the most complete roster in this tournament (among with Belgium I.M.O.)and one of the best in the world .
In the past 10 games ,France (9-0-1) showed against some strong opponents(Germany/Holland/Portugal-only lost to England in Wembley Stadium ) that they are becoming a solid team and they can withstand in high level of football.
Coach Deschamps stated for this game : We are getting ready for this game fo the past 2 years,every game we played was a friendly one and the less pressure we have (France fans) the best it's gonna be for us .
Romania comes to this Euro after being undefeated in the group stage (5-5-0)and not onlu that.they had the best defense in all of the teams as they managed to concede just 2 goals with 8/10 clean sheets.
Now Romania after failing to qualify in the past 2 Euro cups they have to jump immediately in deep waters in their 1st game and to seek a positive result .
There is no hiding coach Iordanescu will have a defensive approach to this game,he stated for this game :We are taking part in the biggest competition of teams from Europe and we have to show that we are a capable team and try for a surprise.Our goal is to try to qualify to the knock out stages .
Only Steliano Filip is a doubt for tonight's game .
France is the clear favorite for this game and they are called to overcome the stress of the opening game and also a small tradition that is building up as in the past 3 Euros (2004, 2008, 2012),none of the hosting teams won the 1st game .
Romania will have to play a perfect game on this one to get something out of it and my bet will be on the logic that stress and a solid Romanian defense will not let the game to go out of hand .
In my mind i see a 2-0,3-0 result on this one and i was between the bet i picked and the 2 or 3 goals (@ 2.10) ,but again the great odds offered ,the stress of the 1st game and the defensive approach of Romania to this game made me pick this bet.
It is kind of risky but i think it's worth it.
