Euro 2016 tips - penalty payback

Thursday 7th July

GERMANY V FRANCE 

MY SELECTION = Red card during first half

Best odds = Stan James at 9/1

Only three red cards have been dished out so far during Euro 2016 and as such the odds for a sending off seem to be showing decent value. There is a lot riding on this match and with two top teams clashing I can see them both wanting to make a physical impression on each other straight from the off.

Silly challenges trying to shake up key target men may very well lead to some early yellow cards being shown and the likeliness of this will be greater due to the yellow card suspension system being reset.

There is also the matter of not many goals being scored in this tournament, meaning it is likely one goal could well settle things. With this in the back of everybody’s mind a professional foul outside the box may well be worth risking if a player is looking like getting through on goal.

All these possible factors make me believe that the likeliness of a red card in the first half is good value and worth taking at a 9/1 price.
