Having conceded a late equaliser to drop two points against Russia in their opener, Roy Hodgson’s men are 4/7 (1.57) favourites with bet365 to bounce back with an important win at the Stade Bollaert Delelis.
Meanwhile, the Dragons ran out 2-1 winners over Slovakia in their first group game and are available at 6/1 (7.00) to book their place in the knockout stages by coming out on top against their local rivals. There hasn't been a draw in any of the last nine meetings between these sides, but you can get odds of 3/1 (4.00) on them cancelling each other out on this occasion.
While the Three Lions will have been bitterly disappointed to take just a point from their opening game, it could not have gone any better for their next opponents. With three points already in the bag, Chris Coleman’s side will go into this clash under minimal pressure as they take on a team in pressing need of victory.
This situation should perfectly suit a team that has built its success on soaking up pressure before exploiting the irrepressible talents of star man Gareth Bale on the break – a tactic that once again paid dividends against Slovakia last Saturday.
Although an English attack that has only failed to score once in their last 13 matches should feel confident in following in Slovak footsteps by penetrating a defence that has kept just one clean sheet in six, recent defensive lapses suggest the goalmouth action won’t be restricted to one end.
All things considered, odds of 21/20 (2.05) are not to be missed on Hodgson’s nervy outfit ensuring goals at both ends for their sixth match in seven when they take on a confident Bale-inspired Wales side.
