It was a terrific day of football yesterday which really blew up the so called Group of Death, leaving a final round of very intense matches.
Hungary started off almost upsetting the defending world champions France, Attila Fiola of Hungary put in a terrific goal to end the first half that had the local Puskas Arena as loud as anything we’ve heard so far. The fans are a big part of the game and you could definitely see the Hungarian team getting carried on taking in extra energy.
While France did manage an equalizer by Antoine Griezmann, they couldn’t manage to press on and coach Didier Deschamps said afterwards that the heat of around 35 degrees definitely was a factor for his squad.
To finish up round two play in the group, Germany took on Portugal in München and the match turned out to be the most entertaining and high scoring of the Euro 2020 so far.
Superstar Ronaldo plucked in the first goal, but both prior to and after that it was Germany who where mostly in charge of the events. Within a five minute span towards the end of the first half, Germany had managed chances netting two own goals.
Two goals within the 60th minute of the second half more or less closed up the match and France now sits with 4 points in group F while Germany and Portugal both have 3. Hungary even has a chance in the final round as well, but would both need a win themselves vs Germany as well as having France beat Portugal in order to make it on – Group of Death indeed.
Spain needing a win in the final round
Yesterday’s evening match was Spain – Poland, goals were netted by Alvaro Moratta and Robert Levandowski for a 1-1 tie. That result also managed to muddy up group E in a big way as well, with Spain now more than likely having to win in their final match-up vs Slovakia in order to move to the round of 16.
Should Slovakia win then they are of course on themselves, but a tie along with anything but a Polish win vs Sweden would also move Slovakia into the round of 16.
Overall the groups throughout the Euro 2020 are really tight and I can’t tell you how excited we are about next weeks matches here at BetFootball.
Golden Boot Round 2 Roundup
Three of our Golden Boot picks have really been racking up the goals and are looking pretty good to finish the Euros as the top scorer.
Ronaldo netted his third goal of the tournament when he brought Portugal ahead 0-1 vs Germany and it has him sitting alone at the top of the Euro 2020 leaderboard.
Romelu Lukaku has scored two so far and has the advantage of facing a relative weak defensive side in the last group match vs Finland – don’t be surprised if he puts in one or two tomorrow evening.
Ciro Immobile was our longshot and he hasn’t disappointed. Two goals so far and odds down from 33/1 to the now available 9/1. Lukaku is at 4/1 and Ronaldo at 15/4.
All of our recommended bookmakers are still offering odds on the Golden Boot and signing up is easy and hassle free, so there’s no reason not to pick up a terrific welcome offer for betting on the Euros.
Football Betting FAQ
Can I bet on the result of a match, even when the match has already begun?Yes, you can. The difference here is that you are live betting once betting on a match that has already started. Live betting is another form of betting, with odds changing as the match takes place.
I see a favorite in a match has higher odds thanks to a handicap -1. What does handicap mean?Betting on a team with a handicap makes up for more favorable odds. Handicap -1 means that the team you bet on starts the game with a goal behind, meaning they need to win the match with two goals difference.
I want to put my money on a team with really high odds. Is this a good idea?We are not here to advise you. But there is a reason the odds are high: because chances are small that that team will win the match. So, you might win more, but the chances of winning are smaller.
I want to combine the outcome with the exact score, is this possible?You can combine such bets at most bookies, sometimes even in a single bet.
