England v Slovakia Betting: Drama expected until the final whistle

With both teams having fallen victim to late goals in the competition so far, Al Hain-Cole is backing plenty of action to unfold as the match draws to a close in Saint-Etienne

After their dramatic late win over Wales, England will be looking to seal first place in Group B when they take on Slovakia in Saint-Etienne on Monday.
 
Daniel Sturridge’s 90th-minute goal put Roy Hodgson’s men in pole position on four points after two games and they are available at 4/5 (1.80) with Betway to advance to the knockout stages as group winners by coming out on top at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard. The online firm are offering new customers the chance to take up a price of 5/1 (6.0) about the favourites topping the group with a second straight victory in France.

To take up this price simply sign up with the online firm, back England at the usual price shown on site and if they win then the returns will be topped up to 5/1 (6.0). If they fail to secure victory then anyone who took up the offer will get their stake back as a free bet.


 
Meanwhile, Slovakia bounced backed from an opening defeat to Wales by beating Russia 2-1 last time out, and are on offer at 9/2 (5.50) to leapfrog their opponents with another victory here.
 
Only one of the Slovaks’ six matches at major tournaments has resulted in a draw, but you can get odds of 12/5 (3.40) on them claiming a potentially crucial point in this one.
 
Having been on the receiving end of a late equaliser in their opening draw against Russia, the Three Lions will have taken particular satisfaction from scoring right at the death to ensure victory in their very next game.

In fact, late drama has been a feature of not just England matches at Euro 2016, with Dimitri Payet’s last-minute winner against Romania in the curtain raiser having set the tone for a tournament where fans don't want to leave the stadium early. Overall, 14 of the first 23 games in France have produced goals after the 80th minute, with these two sides responsible for four of those fixtures between them.
 

This trend should certainly not have come as a surprise to Hodgson of all people, with his side having seen a goal scored in the last 10 minutes of nine of their previous 14 matches, and five of the last six alone.
 
With all signs pointing to more late action, odds of 5/4 (2.25) seem too good to pass up on a goal being scored after the 76th minute in another tightly-contested match.

Anyone wanting to take up the 5/1 (6.0) on offer about England winning the game can do so here.
