Group E has been one of the most interesting groups in this year’s tournament. While Belgium seemed clear favorites on paper, Italy produced great football in their 2 games so far and already qualified top of the group with 6 points. Belgium, Ireland and Sweden are battling for second and third places in a couple of games which will surely be fascinating.

Belgium have disappointed in their first game of the group, losing 0-2 against Italy and not showing great football. Their second game was 0-0 at halftime and the Belgians took that as a wake-up sign, scoring three times during the second half and showing some great attacking football.
They need a draw in the last game against Sweden to make sure they qualify from second place, but they will surely go for a win which will get them 6 points.
Meanwhile, Sweden has a slim chance of qualifying from the group directly, relying on both an unlikely win against Belgium and a good showing by Italy against Ireland. What’s even worst is that their game was not very impressive so far, essentially relying on a brilliant moment by Zlatan Ibrahimović to bring a good result.
Zlatan unfortunately seems tired and wants to see the end of his last major tournament as soon as possible, even if it means a group stage exit for his team.
From a betting perspective, Belgium seem clear favorites. They are the better team and need the win, which means they will also be motivated. Sweden will try to put up a fight, meaning that Belgium & over 2,5 goals is a great bet, while bets like Belgium & Lukaku to score are also decent choices.
If you are unsure regarding the final result of the game, just go with over 2,5 goals – if there ever was a game which was a clear candidate for that bet, it’s this one.
Belgium and Over 2.5 Goals: 3.40 or 12/5
Total Goals: Over 2.5 – 2.35 or 27/20
The wait is over, the teams are known, the final is upon us – we return to the Stade de France, where we kicked off this footballing celebration exactly one month ago, on June 10th. One of the teams that featured in that game, France, made it all the way to the final. They practically returned to the place they started their adventure, in front of the same fans, but with two major differences: tonight, they are fighting for the title, and against different opposition: they no longer face Romania, but Ronaldo’s trophy-hungry Portugal. Betting Odds: Portugal 4.50 or 7/2 Draw 3.20 or 11/5 France 2.05 or 21/20 Portugal are the surprise presence in this year’s final. Not necessarily because…
What can be more exciting in the semi-finals of a great tournament like Euro 2016 than a clash between the host nation, France, and reigning world champions, Germany? The game is the absolute peak of footballing performance and will truly have everything – technique, great tactics, star players and hopefully goals. The general consensus states that the winner of this semi-final will go on and win the title, easily surpassing Portugal or Wales. Even if that is true, there still is a question to answer: who will progress from this game in Marseille? Betting Odds: Germany 3.00 or 2/1 Draw 3.00 or 2/1 France 2.80 or 9/5 We will look first at Germany, which are unbeaten so far in this…
After almost a month of games, Euro 2016 is drawing to a close. We just have two more semifinals before the major celebration that is the tournament’s final, but let’s not be too hasty. The two semifinals will surely produce great quality games, passionate encounters and will feature teams which will fight desperately for a place in the last game. The first semi-final will take place on the 7th of July at Lyon, and will feature Portugal versus the surprise of this year’s championship: Wales. Betting Odds: Portugal 2.20 or 6/5 Draw 3.10 or 21/10 Wales 4.00 or 3/1 Wales qualified for the first time for a major tournament this year. They were dubbed as the weakest team in group…
