The bookmakers have Chris Coleman's charges as favourites to progress to the quarter-finals but new Betway players can back the Group B winners at a massive 6/1

Two of the surprise packages of Euro 2016 meet in the last 16 as all-British knockout tie takes place at the Parc des Princes.

Wales topped Group B ahead of big favourites England and Chris Coleman's men will be confident of progressing to the quarter-finals, as are the bookmakers who offer them at around Even money (2.0) to win the game against Northern Ireland in normal time.

While that price will attract plenty of attention given how impressive Wales have been thus far, anyone yet to sign up with Betway can take an enhanced price of 6/1 (7.0) about them securing safe passage to the next round.

Anyone who wishes to take up this price of 6/1 (7.0) can do so by registering with Betway, backing Wales at the usual price shown on site and if Coleman's side win, the returns will be topped up to the enhanced price. Anyone who backs this offer will get a free bet if they don't secure victory.

Gareth Bale will not only have designs on the later rounds of the competition but also the top scorer prize given his three goals thus far.

The Real Madrid man has been in sensational form for his country, netting in all three games and despite Northern Ireland's staunch defence, it could be Bale's exceptional quality that proves the difference in a tight game.

The defensive approach adopted by Michael O'Neill in the 1-0 loss to Poland was abandoned for the 2-0 win over Ukraine but the manner of Germany's single-goal victory in their final Group C game could well have been a much more significant winning margin were it not for a brilliant performance from Michael McGovern.

Any attacking intent could be ruthlessly exposed by a Wales side who boast plenty of pace on the counter attack and rounded off Group B with a dominant 3-0 victory over a Russia side, who were lucky to only lose by three goals given the balance of the match.

O'Neill's charges have performed well to get to this stage but Wales and their star quality in the likes of Bale and Aaron Ramsey could be a step too far for a side who have struggled to find their attacking groove against the better sides they've faced in France. Quotes of 6/1 (7.0) with Betway offer a much larger price than is usually available.
