Euro 2012

Super Sunday sees Holland v Portugal and Germany v Denmark as odds shorten for German success

After a shock set of results last night, which saw both Greece and the Czech Republic qualify, Paddy Power have announced free bets and report that Germany’s odds have been cut to 5/2 for Euro 2012 success.

It was a solitary strike from Czech Republic midfielder Petr Jiracek which sent the Poles crashing out at the group stage, while Greece skipper Giorgos Karagounis fired Russia out of the tournament with a first half goal as these two results sent a shockwave through the tournament.

For Holland, nothing less than a clear win by two goals against Portugal and a win for Germany over Denmark will do.

Paddy Power have announced that they will offer free bets worth £250/€250 to spend on any Euro 2012 fixture today and will also refund losing bets should Robin Van Persie score at anytime during their game with Portugal! Exclusive to SqueakyBumTime.com, claim here.

The latest Holland v Portugal odds  suggest that a very tight game, with both sides priced up around the same at 15/8.

Bert van Marwijk really has no other option than go for goals, which means a probable starting birth for Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and will see the Dutch move back to their 4-2-3-1 formation, with Robin Van Persie moving out to the left flank.

Rafael van der Vaart could also come in for captain Mark Von Bommel which would see the Dutch with a formidable attacking unit.

Germany and Denmark go head to head on Sunday evening in a match that has the makings of being one of the best of the tournament so far.

Both sides can have hopes of making the quarter-finals but know a good performance is needed here.

Looking at Denmark to begin with, after starting Euro 2012 flying with a win over Holland, they were defeated 3-2 by Portugal last time out. They now know that a positive result is needed to reach the knockout stages.

Morten Olsen’s men were not tipped by many to progress from such a difficult group but have proved that they are a very good side capable of causing upsets.

They will now need to show that they can perform when the pressure is on and hope that other results go their way.

In terms of the betting for the match, Denmark are the underdogs to take all three points. You can back them at 11/2.

As for Germany, things could not have gone much better for them in the tournament so far. They were not at their best against Portugal but managed a 1-0 win and played extremely well last time out to defeat Holland 2-1.

Joachim Loew will be happy with the way his side is playing but will also be aware that a slip-up here could see them drop out of the competition should results go against them.

Mario Gomez looks to be the man that could really light up Euro 2012 as he has three goals to his name already. The 26-year-old took his goals superbly and looks to be in the form of his life.

With the likes of Mezut Ozil and Thomas Muller along with Gomez going forward, Germany are a force to be reckoned with.

Loew’s men are being offered at 8/11 to win this match and top the group.
