European Championships: Quarter Finals Tips

There are two cracking Euro 2024 quarter-finals on Friday evening, with four heavyweight nations set to slug it out.

Host nation Germany take on Spain in Stuttgart, while Portugal and France face off in Hamburg.

We have a selection in each of the two last-eight ties to make up a double, which pays 21/2.

Tip 1: Spain v Germany - Over 2.5 goals @ 21/20

Spain have arguably been the most impressive side at Euro 2024, with an eye-catching 3-0 victory over Croatia and impressive 4-1 last-16 success against Georgia.

La Roja also got the better of Italy 1-0 in the group stage, before beating Albania by the same scoreline in their final first phase contest.

There is no doubt that Nico Williams and Lamine Yamal have added an extra dimension to the Spanish attack, but Italy and Croatia looked like sides well below those of previous international tournaments and a clash against Germany looks the toughest Luis de la Fuente’s men will have faced in the tournament.

The host nation eased past Denmark at the last-16 stage, and while a couple of big decisions went the way of Julian Nagelsmann’s men, it’s hard to argue that they weren’t clearly the best side.

Nagelsmann will adopt the same high-tempo, aggressive and attacking approach in Stuttgart, Spain will carry a major threat to Germany’s back-line and backing over 2.5 goals look the play in what should be a high-class contest.

Tip 2: Portugal v France - France to score over 2.5 goals @ 24/5

France haven’t reached the heights that many expected at Euro 2024, but Portugal put in a lacklustre display when needing a penalty shootout to get past Slovenia in the last-16 and Les Bleus could turn on the style in Hamburg.

Portugal played a gruelling 120 minutes on Tuesday night and that could take its toll on the legs of aging performers Pepe and Cristano Ronaldo.

The duo have enjoyed fantastic careers, but their peak is in the pas, and with manager Roberto Martinez showing no signs of leaving either of the pair out of the starting line-up, it's a decision that could end up costing the Selecao.

The pace and skill of Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann and Marcus Thuram should be able to cause Portugal plenty of problems and if Didier Deschamps’ side can start to convert some of the many chances they have created, it could be bad news for Martinez’s men.

France had 19 shots against Denmark, the same number against Poland, 15 in their clash with the Netherlands and 14 when taking on Austria.

A repeat of those sort of numbers could lead to Les Bleus finding the net at least three times against a jaded Portugal.
