With the opening game of Euro 2016 taking place at the Stade de France, NetBet are offering 7/1 on Les Blues or 50/1 for those who believe Deschamps' side are set for a shock defeat

The pressure may be on the home side to deliver at Euro 2016 but France certainly seem to have more than enough firepower to see off the challenge of Romania in the tournament's opening game on Friday.

NetBet are offering new customers a choice of enhanced odds on the match, putting France up at 7/1 (8.0) and Romania at a massive 50/1 (51.0).

To take up either of these prices, sign up using the links provided, make a deposit using the bonus code BESTODDS and back your chosen team. If they win then the returns will be topped up to the enhanced price. What's more, there's a free bet awaiting anyone who doesn't win.

While Les Bleus haven't been involved in any competitive games for two years due to hosting the tournament, Deschamps has a wealth of talent to pick from despite the absence of Karim Benzema and Raphael Varane.

The French have usually been extremely effective when competing as the home nation in an international tournament and that should add more weight to their already considerable claims for this opening encounter.

The favourites are no bigger than 1/3 (1.33) at the time of writing to kick off their campaign with a victory in Group A and so the opportunity to back them at 7/1 (8.0) is sure to prove a popular option.

Romania are huge underdogs to shock the nation by recording an opening day victory in Paris but their defensive record of two goals conceded during qualification could give their backers hope that Anghel Iordanescu's side can frustrate France and hit them on the counter attack.

From a pure value standpoint, some may feel that the 50/1 (51.0) on Romania should be backed given their usual quotes of around 12/1 (13.0) given the huge increase in potential returns for new NetBet players.
