The French national team has never lost a competitive match to the Southeast Europeans. Nevertheless, experts who bet on soccer expect this one to a close contest, based on recent encounters. France and Romania have played each other officially on eight occasions; the former have won three of those matches, while the rest have ended in a draw (including four of the last five). The opening match of the Euro 2016 will be held on June 10th at Stade de France, Saint-Denis; t heir only previous game in that venue was a 1-1 draw in a World Cup qualifying game in September 2009. The two squads first met in a EURO 1996 finals game in Newcastle on June 10th, which France won 1-0 with the lone goal scored by Cristophe Dugarry – can soccer betting history repeat itself 20 years to the day? Well, other than the fact that Dugarry has been retired for over a decade.
