Posted on June 19, 2016 by  

Our good friends over at leading Betfair software producers, Racing Traders have kindly provided us with some excellent preview material ahead of this summer’s Euro 2016 tournament.

Euro 2016 – Head-to-Head Group Stage Stats – By Andy Newton

Football fans might be having their normal ‘end-of-season’ withdrawal symptoms with the main league and cup action over, but they don’t have to wait long before they can get back their ‘football fix’ as this summer we’ve got the small matter of Euro 2016 to keep punters ticking over.

Yes, we get rolling on the 10th of June as the hosts, France, kick things off with their opening Group game vs Romania – then it’s full steam ahead with three group games on most days right up until Wednesday 22nd June – girlfriends and wives are not going to like it!

So to help you along the way, and to keep you prepared for each game, here at RacingTraders we’ve taken a ‘quick-fire’ look at each group clash from a HEAD-TO-HEAD angle.

You’ll see below that there are some ‘standout stats’ when certain sides have met in the past and hopefully these will give you a few different betting angles to take into each game – plus we’ll also give you our RacingTraders best bet
