France vs Albania live stream/TV listings: June 15, 2016 UEFA Euro match

June 13, 2016 By Michelle Bonsu
After a hard-fought and deserved win over Romania, Euro 2016 hosts France will hope to seal their spot in the next round as they take on debutants Albania at the Stade Vélodrome on Wednesday, June 15th. Here are some live TV listings & online streaming options for France vs. Albania.

16 years after their last Euro triumph, France are hoping to achieve what they did 32 years ago - to win it on home soil. As hosts of UEFA Euro 2016, Les Bleus have been pitted as favorites due to their home pitch advantage, but they will have many more games to go if they want to reach the final on July 10th. Meanwhile, their upcoming opponents Albania are chartering through unfamiliar waters as one of five debutants at this summer's tournament, and will be aspiring to spring an upset as the two sides clash at the Stade Vélodrome this Wednesday.

France

It wasn't easy, but Didier Deschamps's men have managed to start off their tournament on the right foot. In their opening match against Romania, they faced a team determined to fight tooth and nail - but not hunkering down and playing for a draw. They were given a scare in the second half when the Romanians pulled one back via penalty, but then a very late - and brilliant - goal from West Ham's Dimitri Payet was enough to seal the win and sent social media ablaze with exuberant Les Bleus supporters.

Dimitri Payet's impressive late strike, along with Olivier Giroud's second-half goal gave France all three points in their Euro 2016 opener last Friday

A win in their upcoming match will certainly seal a spot in the knockout rounds and give them some breathing room before taking on Switzerland in their final group stage game. However, although they had held the historical advantage in competitive meetings, they will definitely be coming into this match wary of the potential problems Albania could pose this Wednesday.

Both Blaise Matuidi and Paul Pogba were reportedly suffering from slight knocks, but apparently both key midfielders were able to resume normal training - something that will certainly alleviate the concerns of French supporters ahead of this must-win match.

Albania

As one of several debutants at this tournament, Albania are naturally viewed as the underdogs. That being said, not much has been expected of the Eagles, and many have written off their chances at even getting out of their group. However, Gianni De Biasi's side put in an impressive shift in their opener against Switzerland. Although they ended up losing 1-0, they put in an excellent fight especially considering that they had the play most of the match with a man down.

Lorik Cana's suspension will leave a big void in the center of defense for the debutants

In the first half, captain Lorik Cana was sent off after a moment of madness, leaving Albania to have to play over 60 minutes with ten men. Whilst a morale win will not put any points in the bank, Albania will still be fancying their chances at an upset - especially since in their last two meetings they have managed to give the Euro 2016 hosts quite a bit of trouble.
