Group B: Finland v Russia

June 16

Having beaten their Nordic rivals Denmark in the first game, and looking in a strong position to qualify, Finland come into this one full of confidence. They’ll want a good result from this game, before the final group match against a strong Belgian side. Having kept a clean sheet in the first game and several in qualifying, Finland to keep a clean sheet (4.00) looks a strong possibility.

At the other end, Teemu Pukki will be looking to grab a goal in this game, having scored 10 during qualification. If he hits the net first, it’ll land 6.80.

Group A: Turkey v Wales

June 16

This game is a must-win for both sides, so expect a lot of action. Wales managed to grab a point with Switzerland, while Turkey are at rock bottom with a poor goal difference after their defeat to Italy.

The Turkish team can take confidence from their qualification campaign though. Remember they beat tournament favourites, France, so we know they have the capability to beat anyone on the day. Meanwhile, Wales will still be working the confidence they gained from a heroic Euro 2016.

Bottom line – both have to come out firing. Both teams to score is at 2.18 – will Bale be crowned the Welsh dragon with the first goal at 5.20?

Group A: Italy v Switzerland

June 16

Italy were arguably the most impressive in the first round of games, comfortably beating Turkey 3-0. Their position at the top of the table in Group A is secure after the Swiss only managed a draw in their first game with Wales. It’s 9.40 for the Italians to repeat the 3-0 scoreline again and guarantee their place in the final 16.

If Switzerland can travel to Italy and steal the 3 points (6.20), it will open up the group for a really exciting final round of games.

Day 5 – 15.06

June 15

The final day of Matchday 1, and we move into the ‘Group of Death’ – the most competitive group, where anything can happen. Today the holders, Portugal, are in action against Hungary, while two of the tournament’s favourites, France and Germany, go head to head.

Group F: Hungary v Portugal

June 15

Alt text

Ronaldo’s team come into this tournament looking to defend their title, and lift the trophy again. He’ll be keen to get on the scoresheet and keep pace with the likes of Lukaku for the Golden Boot. Hungary are big underdogs in this game but, as we saw with Finland, you can never rule against an upset. Will Hungary have an unlikely hero? Or, will Portugal win 3-0 as Italy did for an impressive result in their first game?

Group F: France v Germany

June 15

Some people are considering this a potential final fixture, so what will we learn from this encounter? It’s hard to separate the two in this game, France (2.65) and Germany (2.80), but the total goals scored will be one to consider. Germany scored 30 in qualifying, France scored 25, so are we looking at a high scoring encounter? Over 4.5 goals is at 6.80 and both teams to score in each half is at 17.00.

Tomorrow we move into Match Day 2, and another triple-header with plenty of action to get involved with. Some teams are coming into the next set of fixtures knowing they need to recover a poor start with a win, or qualification could be out their reach by the final game.

Day 4 – 14.06

June 14

We’re treated with another 3 games today, including the return of Scotland to tournament football for the first time in 23 years. Poland take on neighbours Slovakia, and 3 time champions Spain get started. There’s also action in the Copa after the Euro’s finishes, so another big day to get stuck in!

Group D: Scotland v Czech Republic

June 14

After years of qualification misery, the Scottish are back at a major tournament, and get the benefit of playing their first game on home soil. Both of these teams were low scoring in qualifying, so the form would suggest a low scoring encounter. With 12,000 fans cheering on Scotland, will we see a captain’s performance and goal from Andy Robertson (10.00)?

Group E: Poland v Slovakia

June 14

Encounters between these two are usually tighter than the market currently suggests, having met 8 times over the years with Slovakia getting 4 wins, and Poland 3 wins. Poland (1.82) currently sit as firm favourites to level up that record. Previous fixtures have been low scoring, so a moment of brilliance, or mistake, could see the game go either way.

Group E: Spain v Sweden

June 14

These teams met up in qualifying, with the Spanish taking a comfortable home win and a draw, so come into this fixture in Seville full of confidence. However, disruptions to preparations within the Spanish team could give the Swedish team more hope. This is also the first ever time that Spain come to a tournament without a single player from Real Madrid, and a squad of only 24 of the possible 26 players. Finally, who will step into the absent Ibrahimovic’s big shoes and grab a goal for Sweden? Another day of action awaits in the Copa America, with Argentina taking on Chile in the first game, followed by Paraguay vs Bolivia. Both Argentina and Paraguay are strong favourites in each game, but can the underdogs grab an early win the tournament and upset the form? Check out the Copa America, and build your selection for all 5 games today!

Day 3

June 13

Another day and 3 more games to get stuck in to. 3 Lions start the day’s action, the tournament newcomers make their debut, and the Netherlands get going in Amsterdam. When the whistle goes on today’s Euros, we’ve got 2 more Copa America games, giving us a massive day with 5 games to choose from.

Group D: England v Croatia

June 13

The 3 Lions roar into their first game at Wembley, with high hopes for the tournament. A youthful, talented attacking team, with the prolific Harry Kane up front, are expected to be high scoring. Whether they can keep a clean sheet at the back is a much bigger question. Last time these teams met up in tournament football, Croatia ran out 2-1 winners in the World Cup semi-final. A repeat of that scoreline would be at 16.00 and would put one of the tournament favourites under pressure.

Group C: Austria v North Macedonia

June 13

North Macedonia make their first appearance at a major tournament in their 28-year history. Can the new boys create some drama? They’re up against an Austrian team who weren’t afraid to shoot in qualifying (14.1 shots, and 1.9 goals per game). The Macedonian’s picked up a lot of bookings throughout their qualifying campaign, so if discipline lets them down, could it be a high scoring encounter?

Group C: Netherlands v Ukraine

June 13

The Netherlands start their tournament with a home fixture at the Amsterdam Arena. They’re expected to have a lot of possession, and many people see them comfortable winners over Ukraine. However, the loss of Virgil van Dijk means they look much more vulnerable at the back. Will it force the Dutch to play more conservatively, or can we expect an end-to-end game filled with goals?

Copa America kicks off tonight with Brazil v Venezuela and Columbia v Ecuador. The Brazilians (2.12) are hot favourites for the tournament, but Messi’s Argentina (3.65) should give them a run for their money. Tonight’s games see an exciting start to the tournament, and you can build your selections across the tournaments for even bigger value!

Day 2

June 12

It’s the second day of the tournament, and the first triple-header! We’ve got 3 huge games today – the return of 2016 semi-finalists, Wales, the Nordic rivals go head-to-head, and Belgium start their campaign. Today’s the perfect day to get those multiple selections together and win big!

Group A: Wales v Switzerland

June 12

Wales go into this one as outsiders. We’ve seen this before when they beat the Belgians on the way to the semi-finals in 2016, so surely they’ve got to be in with a good chance. Bale finished the season in good form. Can he get the Dragons firing from the first game?

Group B: Denmark v Finland

June 12

Nordic rivals meet up for this first game clash, and who can forget the Danish heroics back in 1992 when they lifted the trophy? No one expected them to get to the final, let alone beat the Germans. A classic underdog story. Can the Finnish team turn the tables and beat the heavily fancied Danish?

Group B: Belgium v Russia

June 12

World number 1’s Belgium are in action today, travelling to St Peterburg to take on the Russians. Usually you would predict this to be a comfortable win for Belgium, but with home advantage sitting with Russia, could there be an upset? Lukaku is hoping to get off to a flying start in the race for the Golden Boot, so we can expect an open attacking game with plenty of chances for both teams.

It’s going to get busy – we’ve got 9 games in 3 days – so plenty of chances to get involved and show your form. Copa America kicks off tomorrow too, with Brazil v Venezuela and Columbia v Ecuador. That’s 11 games to play. Time to get your selections ready!

Group A: Turkey vs Italy

June 11

It is expected that Italy should comfortably top Group A, where they will face Turkey, Wales and Switzerland. The first game between Turkey and Italy promises to be action packed, with the Italian’s high average of 3.7 goals per game in qualifying.

Will they both come out firing, trying to get 3 points from the first game, or will they be more cautious on gameday 1? Having won all the qualifiers, Italy should be looking to start on the front foot, and over 3.5 goals in the game could be on the cards (4.20).

Who’s going to be the Goal Hero?

June 11

The race for the Golden Boot is always a great one to get involved with, and there’s usually value to be found. Netting 5 goals should usually see a player in with a good chance of being top scorer, Harry Kane (6.20) and Romelu Lukaku (6.80) are leading the market and in great form.

There’s plenty of interest outside the top 2 in the betting, with many people thinking Ronaldo (12.00) or Mbappe (9.80) could top the goalscoring chart.

Player of the tournament

June 11

Griezmann was Player of the Tournament in France 2016, having lifted the Golden Boot that year. At 17.00, can he do the same again 5 years later, and be the first player ever to achieve that? Mbappe (8.00) leads the market, but influential midfielders often grab this award, so could Bruno Fernandes (23.00), Pogba (26.00) or Ngolo Kante (13.00) be a strong selection before a ball is kicked today?

Tournament winners

June 11

France are heavily tipped to go one place better than last time, where they narrowly lost out in the final to Ronaldo’s Portugal, making them market favourites at 5.40. England follow closely (6.20) but can they make it count in tournament football for once, or will penalties be their downfall?

There’s always the question of whether a 1992 Denmark-type performance can come from one of the outsiders and give a high-priced winner. 2016 semi-finalists Wales could be much better than their odds of 101.00 suggest, assuming they can navigate their way through Group A.

Plenty of early selections are looking outside the top 2 in the betting, including the exciting Netherlands’ team (15.00), world number one team Belgium (7.00) or Portugal (9.00) to lift the trophy again.

You can combine outrights across the Euros and Copa America, backing yourself to get your selections right across both tournaments and win big! Brazil (2.12) lead the way in the Copa America, but there’s plenty of other teams in contention, including Suarez’s Uruguay at 9.20. The top goalscorer market will be an interesting one to follow, with Messi (4.0) and Neymar (5.20) as the market favourites.
