Euro 2024: Daily Tips - July 1st

The third day of Euro 2024 last-16 matches take place on Monday, with another two entertaining clashes to look forward to.

The opening encounter will see France face neighbours Belgium in Dusseldorf at 17:00 (BST), before Portugal take on Slovenia in Frankfurt at 20:00 (BST). We have got selected a treble to consider which, if successful, will return at around 20/1.

Tip 1: France v Belgium – Total France Goals: Over 1.5 @ 27/25

France might not have hit the heights yet that many expected, but they should have too much for Belgium, who themselves look out of sorts. The Red Devils eventually finished second in Group E and sneaked into the knockout stages, after all four teams in their section finished on four points. Domenico Tedesco’s men failed to score in two of their three group games and although they still have quality in their ranks, France look set to be too strong for Belgium. Didier Deschamps has admitted that France need to improve their attacking play, but the coach has plenty of options if he does decide to tweak things. Les Bleus have scored seven times in their last three meetings with Belgium, including a 3-2 comeback win in the 2021 Nations League, and could find their shooting boots in Dusseldorf.

Tip 2: [France v Belgium – To Score: Kylian Mbappe @ 33/20](/betting/football/european-championships

Kylian Mbappe’s injury in France’s opening game has certainly had an impact on the team, but he got his name on the scoresheet against Poland and that should kickstart his tournament. The Real Madrid-bound forward has an incredible record at international level, scoring 48 goals in 81 games for his country. Mbappe scored the second goal in that aforementioned Nation League success over Belgium and should have a field day against the Red Devils’ weak centre-back pairing of Jan Vertonghen and Wout Faes.

The 25-year-old also takes penalties for France, further enhancing his appeal in the anytime scorer market.

Tip 3: [Portugal v Slovenia – HT/FT: Draw / Portugal @ 29/10](/betting/football/european-championships

In their opening two group games, Portugal backed up the case that some made earlier in the month that they could be Euros champions once again. The 2016 winners beat both the Czech Republic and Turkey in Group F, scoring five goals in the process. A 2-0 defeat to Georgia may have some backers concerned, but they rested players in that loss should be good enough to see off the challenge of Slovenia. Matjaz Kek’s men did frustrate England in their final match of the group stage and conceded just two goals en-route to qualifying for the last 16. Slovenia are likely to sit back and hope to hit Portugal on the break, but their opponents have too much quality in their ranks and eventually break the deadlock in the second half. Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, Bernardo Silva and Rafael Leao are all likely to start Monday’s late game and if they can’t make the breakthrough, there are plenty of options in reserve. The likes of Liverpool’s Diogo Jota, Porto’s Francisco Conceicao and Barcelona’s Joao Felix can have an impact from the bench and help Portugal break through after a potentially difficult first half.
