Coral’s bet of the day

  • England were undefeated in 10 Euro 2016 qualifying games
  • The Three Lions have won nine of their last 11
  • In the Home Nation’s past five fixtures, four have seen over 2.5 goals occur
  • Russia are without victory in three

England 11/4 to sink Russia and over 2.5 goals (max stake £20)

It’s time for Coral’s maiden Euro 2016 bet of the day, as England take on Russia in their first fixture from Group B, making this a very patriotic punt.

With special match odds of 11/4 (max stake £20) for the Three Lions to win and over 2.5 goals to be scored in the game up for grabs, customers won’t want to miss out on this wager.

Why not potentially profit from Roy Hodgson’s heroes-in-waiting and capitalise on the Home Nation’s fantastic form? Read on for all the reasons this is the weekend wager to back…

England v Turkey - International Friendly - Etihad Stadium

England excelling up front

There is real hope surrounding the Three Lions camp, as England soared to Euro qualifying success with a perfect 10 victories in as many matches, plus 31 goals scored and only three conceded.

With nine wins in their last 11 matches, including over the likes of tournament favourites Germany and France, Hodgson has a confident contingent on his hands – and one which will be revved up to score goals galore past rivals Russia.

In England’s previous five outings, four have seen over 2.5 strikes clocked-up across those clashes, while this riveting fixture between the English and the Russians also has previous for seeing swathes of goals scored.

England v Portugal - International Friendly - Wembley Stadium

England boast the winners record versus Russia, with six triumphs from 14 and four draws, while there have been 42 goals across those past encounters, which averages at a more than healthy three per game.

This Russian vintage are far from fierce with star man Alan Dzagoev out of the tournament injured, plus an ageing backline.

As Leonid Slutsky’s side have failed to win in three, and with an abundance of attacking talent in Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy, Wayne Rooney, Daniel Sturridge, Dele Alli, Marcus Rashford and Raheem Sterling in the ranks, the Three Lions are fantastic value. So, snap up an England victory and over 2.5 goals at an enticing 11/4 (max stake £20).
