Get fantastic odds on Euro 2016 at 10Bet
Join now This year it’s going to be all about one football tournament. Euro 2016, which will take place in France between June 10 and July 10, will be the biggest event since Germany’s World Cup-winning campaign in Brazil. For the first time in football history the European Championship will feature 24 teams, thus expanding from the 16 teams Euro 2012 welcomed. Will England finally live up to expectations? Can hosts France win their third Euro cup? Will reigning Euro champions Spain defend their trophy? Or will Germany build on their World Cup triumph and conquer Europe as well? These are just some of the questions that will hit the headlines on the eve of the Euro 2016 finals. And there’s only one way to make the upcoming tournament even more exciting – by taking advantage of 10Bet’s fantastic odds on Euro 2016!
The more, the better
The expansion of the Euro 2016 format means that this year’s tournament will host a total of 51 games, compared with the 31 games each of the previous five events used to feature. To put it another way – this summer there will be more Euro games to enjoy and bet on than ever before. The participating teams will be split into six groups of 4 with the top two sides from each group progressing to the knockout stage. In the round of 16 they will be accompanied by the four best third-ranked teams. Without doubt, Holland will be the biggest name missing in France. The Dutch, who were crowned European champions in 1988, failed to advance out of their Euro 2016 qualifying group. However, punters will have the opportunity to back four debutants – Iceland (the smallest nation ever to qualify for a European championship), Gareth Bale-inspired Wales, Northern Ireland and Albania. At 10Bet you will find hundreds of Euro 2016 football markets.
Euro 2016 Favourites
It comes as no surprise that the European heavyweights Germany, France, Spain, England, Italy and Portugal are considered title favourites. Yet there can only be one champion… Who will reign over football Europe?
Join now Germany will play Ukraine, Poland and Northern Ireland in the group stage. Current world champions are many bookies’ favourites to win a record-breaking fourth Euro title, yet their unconvincing display in the qualifiers raised a few eyebrows. Nevertheless, ‘die Mannschaft’ may draw inspiration from France and Spain whose teams claimed Euro glory following their 1998 and 2010 World Cup triumphs, respectively. First of all, the Germans have to come up with a decent plan to stop Poland striker Robert Lewandowski who equalled the record for goals in European qualifiers by scoring 13 times. Will Germany’s shot at glory succeed?
France won their first Euro cup in 1984 when they hosted the tournament. Fourteen years later they welcomed the World Cup to their country and once again emerged victorious from a competition on their home soil. If history repeats itself, then France’s rivals have something to worry about. Before meeting the other football powerhouses in the knockout rounds the Euro 2016 hosts will play Albania, Romania and Switzerland in the group stage. Will France make their mark?
Reigning Euro champions are determined to get back on winning path after their disastrous World Cup run in Brazil. Furthermore, Spain have won two successive Euro titles and now eye a unique treble. Their quest for glory begins against the Czech Republic and they will also face Croatia and Turkey in the group stage. At Euro 2012 Spain didn’t lose a single game, so the big question is: can they repeat the exercise once again?
Join now England will face Russia, Wales and Slovakia in the group stage. The Three Lions were the only team which maintained a perfect record in the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign with 10 wins out of 10. Even though an immaculate run in the qualifiers is no guarantee of title success, it’s certainly a major boost for England’s hopes of a decent performance in France. Roy Hodgson’s boys want to at least emulate their predecessors’ Euro 1996 run. Back then the English team reached the semi-final stage on home soil. Can Rooney and Co. go one step further this time?
The Azzurri will be in the group stage company of Belgium, Republic of Ireland and Sweden. In 2012 the Italians went all the way to the final knocking Germany out of the competition in the semis. Although Italy were then denied the title by unbeatable Spain, they showed the football world they are still a force to be reckoned with. Now Italy have the chance to add a second European title to their trophy cabinet but will they have the last laugh on July 10?
Join now In the absence of his greatest nemesis Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to reveal his full potential and deliver some spectacular performances at Euro 2016. As Ronaldo and his Portugal team-mates will come up against Austria, Hungary and Iceland in the group stage their road to the round of 16 seems clear. Twelve years ago Portugal reached the Euro final but went on to lose the title to underdogs Greece. Now Seleção are ready to take revenge with Ronaldo tipped for the goalscoring crown. Will Cristiano and Co. step into the spotlight?
The Red Devils have been somewhat of a rising force in European football in the past 10 years. The emergence of world class stars such as Eden Hazard, Vincent Kompany and Romelu Lukaku in recent times have made Belgium a national team to be reckoned with. In their last major tournament at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Marc Wilmots’ men made it all the way to the competition’s last eight where they were knocked out by Argentina in a narrow 1-0 defeat in Brasilia. In a Euro 2016 qualifying pool that contained the likes of Wales, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Israel, Belgium managed to top their group finishing two points clear of 2nd placed Wales and losing just one game in the process. With tricky opponents Italy, Sweden and Ireland drawn in their Euro Championships group in June, the 11/1 shots still have some work to do should they wish to progress to the knockout stages of the tournament.
25/1 outsiders Croatia have every chance of progressing far in this summer’s European Championships with players such as Real Madrid’s Luka Modric and Juventus’ Mario Mandžukić at the helm. The Blazers were placed second in their Euro 2016 qualifying group that contained the likes of Italy and Norway and this summer they will need to take on title holders Spain as well as Turkey and the Czech Republic in the preliminary stages of the competition. At the 2014 World Cup Ante Čačić's suffered a disappointing exit in the group stages after losing to hosts Brazil in their opening game followed by defeat to Mexico and a win against Cameroon. With that in mind, Croatia along with a number of nations who fared poorly at the World Cup will have more than a point to prove going into this year’s European Championships in France.
