Coral’s bet of the day
- Dimitri Payet started Euro 2016 in flying form
- The France playmaker has struck twice already
- France next face Iceland in tonight’s unlikely quarter-final meeting
- Iceland’s gallant run should come to an end
- Payet set to star once again for Les Bleus
Payet 6/4 to score past Iceland anytime
It’s the turn of the Euro 2016 hosts to feature once again in this summer’s exciting tournament as France take on surprise package Iceland in their quarter-final match-up tonight at the Stade de France.
With Didier Deschamps’ Les Bleus edging closer to supremacy on home soil they will seek a strong showing against the Nordic nation, and Coral’s latest bet of the day features their star man Dimitri Payet at a tasty 6/4 to strike anytime in 90 minutes.
The West Ham United ace has been sensational so far for the host nation and, alongside the likes of midfield maestro Paul Pogba and in-form Atletico Madrid marksman Antoine Griezmann, Payet will once again aim to fire his country to success this time around.
In-form plamaker Payet to sink Iceland
Iceland have been incredible on their path to the quarter-finals, in particular their 2-1 victory over England during the last 16, but they come up against a solid France outfit boasting a wealth of attacking talent here.
Payet is set to be the main man once more, having helped Deschamps’ side finish atop Group A on home turf before sending Martin O’Neill’s gallant Republic of Ireland home in the last 16.
The dynamic Hammers attacker netted late goals against both Romania and Albania in the group stage and will be confident of finding the target again to add to his campaign tally in Paris, as a semi-final appearance looms large.
France are unlikely to make the same mistake as England in overlooking Iceland’s abilities and will take the Nordic nation’s threat very seriously but, with an in-form Payet in their ranks, they have plenty of cause for optimism and confidence.
So make sure to back Payet to get his name on the scoresheet once again against Iceland in this quarter-final encounter, at a sublime 6/4 as Coral’s latest bet of the day!
