Football Betting Predictions – EURO 2016 Predictions Week 3
Russia Vs Wales
Igor Denisov is the only player missing for Leonid Slutskiy in the must win Group B game against Wales. Denis Glushakov, who scored against Slovakia coming off the bench in the second half could be handed a start ahead of Aleksandr Golovin.
Joe Ledley is a minor doubt after picking up a leg injury in the 2-1 defeat against England on Thursday evening. Chris Coleman has no other fitness concerns in the squad and is likely to stick with the same eleven that started in their second group game.
Russia are unbeaten in the four meetings against Wales with three wins and a draw. The two teams first met twice in 2004 Euro championship play-offs were Russia eliminated Wales after a 0-0 result in Moscow and a 1-0 win at Cardiff in the return leg.
They were grouped again in the 2010 World Cup qualifiers, Russia once again winning both fixtures 2-1 at home and 3-1 in the return leg to the benefit of major football betting prediction fans. Russia are on a three match winning streak against Wales.
Russia’s Predicted Line-up (4-2-3-1)
Akinfeev – Smolnikov, Berezutski, Ignashevich, Schennikov – Golovin, Neustadter – Kokorin, Shatov, Smolov – Dzyuba
Wales Predicted Line-up (3-4-3)

Football Betting Predictions:
Back Russia to Win @ 2.70
Slovakia Vs England
Norbert Gyombér remains a minor doubt with injury and Jan Kozak has no fresh injury concerns or players suspended. He is expected to field an unchanged eleven that started in the team’s 2-1 win over Russia and made massive cash-ins for football betting prediction fans worldwide.
Roy Hodgson confirmed that he will be resting six players including Rooney, who started in the previous games for the final Group B clash against Slovakia. Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling were poor in the first two games and deservingly got the axe and will be replaced by Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge. Jordan Henderson and Jack Wilshere will earn their first start in the midfield at the expense of Dele Alli and Wayne Rooney with the formation being changed to 4-3-3.
Both Tottenham wing backs Kyle Walker and Danny Rose are rested and they will make way for Ryan Bertrand and Nathaniel Clyne.
Joe Hart is also under heavy criticism after the howler that led to Wales’ first goal, but he could still start in goal for England.
England and Slovakia had met only on three occasions and the Three Lions hold a 100% win record after winning in all of the three; a football betting prediction fact that should be considered.
The last meeting between the sides was in a friendly on March 2009 at the Wembley Stadium, England under Fabio Capello winning 4-0 on that occasion, with Rooney scoring two of those goals.
The other two meeting was in the Euro 2004 qualification fixture, England won both home and away leg by the same 2-1 scoreline.
Slovakia: Predicted Line-up (4-2-3-1)
Kozacik – Hubocan, Durica, Skrtel, Pekarik – Hrosovsky, Kucka – Weiss, Hamsik, Mak – Nemec.
England: Predicted Line-up (4-3-3)
Hart – Bertrand, Cahill, Smalling, Clyne – Dier, Wilshere, Henderson – Lallana, Sturridge, Vardy.
Football Betting Prediction:
Back England Straight Win @ 1.85
