When Albania were drawn out from Pot 4 for France’s ‘group of life’ at the draw in December, I’m sure Romania and Switzerland were thinking it would between them as to who would get second place behind the hosts. Today they meet in what could be a pivotal game in terms of making sure they make the final 16 by securing the runner up spot. Romania were unlucky to lose to the French in the opener, they deserved a point in my opinion. Switzerland won 1-0 against Albania and though they played against 10 men most of the game their opponents had some decent chances to equalise but to be fair to the Swiss, if it wasn’t for the opposition goalkeeper they could have won by a cricket score. Romania will feel a victory would give them a superb opportunity to come second in the group, especially as Switzerland have a tough final fixture against the French hosts, who will surely be looking to keep up a 100% record as they would expect to beat Albania today. Romania may opt to keep it tight as they are defensively sound, whilst Switzerland might have to go for it, though a point may secure one of the best third place places – interesting very interesting. My score predictions for today’s games as below
Russia 2 Slovakia 2
Romania 1 Switzerland 1
France 3 Albania 0
