MOST of the attention and money will be on Saturday's games featuring Wales and then England but first up we have Switzerland v Albania in Group A.

The Swiss are second favourites behind France but have one just once in nine finals outings and have never won their Euro opener.

They do, however, have a good record against Albania with five wins and a draw in six previous meetings.

Albania are gracing finals for the first time and will be seen as whipping boys but like many underdogs will defend deeply and try to frustrate the life out of the Swiss who will have to be patient.

The Albanians conceded just five in qualifying and instead of taking the Swiss at odds on I'm risking under 1.5 goals at 6-4 with McBookie. Could be 1-0 the Swiss or even 0-0.

Albania are being given plenty of respect by many people and I can see them holding the Swiss to 0-0 at half-time before maybe being opened up in the second half.

The HT 0-0 pays 11-8 at William Hill while the Swiss are a best 10-11 with bet365 to win. Albania are 9-2 at Paddy Power with the draw 9-4 at BetVictor.

It's a tough one to call and if forced to pick a winner I'd go with the Swiss but unders seems the better way to go.

Haris Seferovic is 11-2 at Paddy Power to score first while Stoke's Xherdan Shaqiri is 7-1 at bet365.

Bets to Consider


Under 1.5 match goals

HT correct score 0-0

    With you on the half time correct score of 0-0, and maybe in the other 2 games today as well, all 3 games to be 0-0 at half time pays 12/1 I think that’s worth a couple of quid. Nobody is going to want to lose there opener and expect the games to be cagey. Was on your giroud ATS last night and also took him FGS so thanks for that.

      mike, teams don’t want to lose the opener but it’s not as costly with some third-placed teams going through.

    The 2/1 for Seferovic anytime seems generous

    I see the Swiss kept 5 clean sheets in qualifying,so a bet to nil might be worth considering
