Portugal v France Preview & Match Odds

Odds: Portugal: 18/5, The Draw: 11/5, France: Evens Filing France’s Euro 2016 semi-final win over Germany alongside the great smash and grab successes would probably rate as a little unfair on Didier Deschamps’ side. For example, Les Bleus’ mustered six attempts on target en route to toppling the world champions, who made the opposition keeper More...

Three stats make it safe to rule Real Madrid superstar out of Euros top scorer betting

Cristiano Ronaldo’s dragon-slaying exploits against Wales moved him to within one goal of Euro 2016 leading scorer Antoine Griezmann ahead of Portugal’s appearance in Sunday’s final. CR7 bagged the first in the Seleccao’s 2-0 semi-final win with a bullet header from close range, taking his tally to three for the tournament. As a result, Ronaldo’s More...

Portugal’s semi-final curse marks Wales down as Euro-winners in waiting

When the Manic Street Preachers released that shamelessly cheesy Euro 2016 ballad dedicated to their beloved national football team, few would have predicted Wales as semi-finalists.  But now the world really is in danger of being turned into an inferno by Chris Coleman’s Dragons, with a powerful trend suggesting the seasoned Welsh rockers may soon More...

Germany v France Preview & Match Odds

Germany: 39/20, The Draw: 2/1, France: 9/5 Shadowing Germany in the betting to win Euro 2016 is their semi-final opponent France but, intriguingly, it is the French who the bookies deem more likely to prevail when the duo collide in the last four. Didier Deschamps’ men are 37/20 second-favourites for Euros glory, while Die Mannschaft More...

Portugal v Wales Preview & Match Odds

Odds: Portugal: 5/4, The Draw: 21/10, Wales: 29/10   Euro 2016 is the first football tournament featuring Wales in the semi-final stage. A stunning, but thoroughly-deserved 3-1 victory over Belgium booked them a berth in the last four, where they’ll face Portugal. Just how the Seleccao have ventured so far remains a mystery – they’re More...

Not all the omens are good for a France Euro 2016 triumph

France are hot on Germany’s heels at just 37/20 to win Euro 2016 following the hosts’ 5-2 thumping of Iceland in the last quarter-final, with Joachim Low’s World Cup winners hanging onto favouritism at 9/5 ahead of the historic rivals’ semi-final clash in Paris. With three of the top five scorers in the tournament, including More...

Greek inspiration to help Wales turn tide of misfortune for debutant semi-finalists

Wales provided a Euro 2016 shock to rival Iceland’s eliminating of England in overcoming Belgium to reach the semi-finals. Their 3-1 win ensured them a place in history as the joint-best debutants at the tournament (they equaled Sweden’s performance at Euro ’92, though in truth, the effort of Chris Coleman’s men is far superior given More...

Match Odds: France 9/20, The Draw 7/2, Iceland 15/2 To advance to the next round: France 9/50, Iceland 15/4 There’s a relatively-modern Greek legend that has it that just because an underdog shocks the world in overturning enormous odds once, doesn’t mean they aren’t capable of doing so again and again. Similarly, the tale in More...

The plight of extra-time addicts points to miserable end in Real Madrid ace’s Euros dream

Portugal were the first nation to book a Euro 2016 semi-final spot, overcoming Poland in a penalty shootout after the teams couldn’t be separated in 120 minutes. Incredibly, despite being guaranteed a last four berth, the Seleccao have yet to win a match inside normal time and haven’t been ahead for more than 22 minutes More...

Euro 2016 player of tournament odds: Now is the time to back Portugal tyro

The time is now to back Portugal teenager Renato Sanches to be UEFA player of the tournament for Euro 2016 at 20/1. Granted his first start of the tournament in the Seleccao’s quarter-final victory over Poland by Fernando Santos, the 18-year-old showed exactly why Bayern Munich moved to snap him up from Benfica before the More...

Odds: Germany: 5/4, The Draw: 2/1, Italy: 3/1 Germany’s return to form in the final third against Slovakia sent out an ominous message to their Euro 2016 rivals, but will the obliteration of a tournament small fry in the last-16 instil the confidence to shake their almighty Azzurri hoodoo? Given their place in the pantheon More...

Man Utd man is wrong to suggest England need home-grown boss

Everyone has an opinion on who should be the next England manager, including the current captain Wayne Rooney. When asked about who he would want in the dugout, the 30-year-old said: “Of course, it’s better if he’s English, but he has to be the right man for the job.” However, when looking at the home-grown More...

Odds: Poland: 3/1, The Draw: 2/1, Portugal: 5/4 Portugal’s Euro 2016 campaign so far bear similarities to the numerous tales of rookie casino goers who, disregarding any advice, strategy or instruction manual, tugged levers and bashed buttons on slots machines and ended up winning a fortune – they’ve no idea how, but their visit was More...

Why former Man Utd boss would be perfect for England

Roy Hodgson’s immediate resignation after England lost 2-1 to Iceland at Euro 2016 means the FA have to make a big decision in regard to his replacement. The Three Lions didn’t flourish during the former West Brom man’s time in charge, never winning a tournament knockout game, so whoever comes in will have to oversee More...

Chelsea and Man Utd stalwarts should be among England post-Euro 2016 casualties

England are out of Euro 2016 after losing 2-1 to Iceland, a country only marginally more populated than Wakefield, in the round of 16. Roy Hodgson fell on his sword after the humiliation, with Gareth Southgate the 2/1 favourite to replace him, but the 68-year-old isn’t the only person who should face the consequences of More...

Real Madrid star on target to be Euro 2016 top scorer no matter where Wales end up

The exploits of past Euros top goalscorers suggest playing for one of 2016’s perceived underdogs is no barrier to Gareth Bale becoming the tournament’s leading marksman. Despite upsetting the odds to win Group B and then getting past Northern Ireland, Wales are 51/20 outsiders to get past Belgium into the semi-finals and 28/1 to lift More...

England’s Euro 2016 draw among toughest of all time, but surviving it promises tournament win

As far as pre-determined routes to international tournament finals go, the right side of the Euro 2016 draw is among the toughest ever. Five of the six pre-competition favourites must cross paths in a blockbuster-laden segment that’s sure to test the continent-conquering credentials of any potential victor. Defending champions Spain will play global overlords Germany More...

Raheem reprieve at the expense of Liverpool ace gives England best chance of dismantling Iceland defence

Roy Hodgson is set to make six changes to his England team for the second match in succession as the Three Lions bid to break down Iceland’s ‘Blue Wall’.

Odds: England: 11/20, The Draw: 11/4, Iceland: 29/4 Iceland’s last-gasp winning goal against Austria was celebrated with similar vigour amongst sections of England fans as it was the supporters of the nation who scored it.

Euro 2016 round of 16 – five picks from a double-chance betting paradise

The first knockout stage of Euro 2016 looks to be the equivalent of Homer Simpson’s entirely chocolate dream world for double-chance bettors. Aficionados of the aforementioned gamble need a very specific set of circumstances to throw up opportunities to indulge in their wager of choice. Unappetisingly-short favourites, priced up more on reputation than how they More...

Everton in, Liverpool out switch vital if England are to bulldozer ‘Blue Wall’

England manager Roy Hodgson should bring Ross Barkley in from the cold at Adam Lallana’s expense to make his side more dangerous against Iceland. Given the Three Lions’ toils in oceans of benign possession against Russia, Wales and Slovakia during the group stage, Spain or Germany would have been more preferable round-of-16 opposition foes than More...

Match Odds: Italy 31/10, The Draw 11/10, Spain 23/20 To reach the next round: Italy 6/4, Spain 1/2 No tie in the round of 16 illustrates the old rumination ‘what difference a day makes’ more than Italy v Spain.

Odds: Hungary: 11/2, The Draw: 27/10, Belgium: 65/100 One of Euro 2016’s surprise packages meets one of its more underwhelming outfits in this last-16 affair.

Odds: Germany: 11/25, The Draw: 333/100, Slovakia: 17/2 Progression to the last 16 was Slovakia’s aim for Euro 2016, but pointers as to how they’d advance beyond the first knockout phase were seemingly omitted from the pre-tournament brief. The reward for drawing their final Group B match against England, a result which effectively guaranteed them More...

Odds: Wales: Evens, The Draw: 21/10, Northern Ireland: 15/4 There’s a case to be made that, even though they lost one of their games, Wales have been the team of Euro 2016 so far.

Poland head Croatia as the best bet in Euro 2016’s top half

With the Euro 2016 knockout line-up complete, we now know that only one of Germany, Italy, Spain, France and England, five of the eight current winner betting favourites, will be able to make it to the final, due to all being grouped together in the bottom half of the tournament bracket.
