Euro 2024 Daily Accumulator: 29/06/2024

The knockout stages of Euro 2024 start on Saturday, with Switzerland facing Italy in the opening round-of-16 action. By Tuesday night, the quarter-finals line-up will have been completed.

Switzerland and Italy meet in Berlin, then tournament hosts Germany face Denmark in Dortmund in the final Saturday fixture.

We have selections for both matches to form a double, which pays almost 5/1.


A tight, tetchy encounter can be expected in Berlin when Switzerland and Italy meet at the Olympiastadion. Goals should be in short supply and at least one team can be expected to fail to notch in 90 minutes.

Italy have won the European Championship twice - and the World Cup four times - but that historical success should not cloud the judgement of the betting community. The current Italian crop lacks superstars and Switzerland seem well capable of competing with them in the first of the knockout fixtures.

The Swiss made the quarter-finals the last time they qualified for the Euros - in 2020 - and they have proven difficult to beat this time as well. They have gone through the group stage unbeaten and will feel they have nothing to fear from their last-16 opponents.

Switzerland were hugely impressive in thumping Hungary 3-1 in their opening fixture of this championship, then the Red Crosses fought back from a goal down to draw with Scotland, before leading Germany for most of their final group mission, only conceding a late equaliser.

Italy scored only three goals in the group stage - two of which came against a humble Albania - and the Azzurri may struggle to penetrate the Swiss. A dull, low-scoring affair seems likely.

One goal could easily be enough to win the game and it seems unlikely that both teams will get on the scoresheet in regulation play (90 minutes plus stoppages). Getting the opportunity to take a shade of odds-on about one or both teams ending the match with zero goals is extremely appealing.


The second last-16 match on Saturday should be more open and high-scoring. Germany have quickly found their feet in this competition and the hosts can be expected to make short work of Denmark at the BVB Stadion Dortmund.

Germany can be backed at 5/2 to score three or more goals, which seems a generous price given their obvious superiority over the Danes.

England flattered Denmark in their June 20 meeting in Frankfurt, massively underperforming. The Red and Whites drew all three of their group games, scoring just two goals in the process, and the German defence can expect a comfortable evening.

This looks one of the poorest Denmark sides in history - and it would be incredible if they were able to repel the tournament hosts in Dortmund. Germany made light work of Scotland and Hungary in their opening two group fixtures - and it should be a similar story against Denmark.

Expect Toni Kroos and Niclas Fullkrug to run riot as the Germans put on a show for their army of supporters.
