YB WRITES: Euro 2016 - Quarter Finals

Down to the last 8 now in Euro 2016. Definitely some shockers in the last 8 and possibly more to come...

Tonight sees Poland vs Portugal. While Portugal are easy favourites, if you've been watching so far, you'll see they've been far from convincing. Poland on the other hand, have played well and tried hard and I definitely think they have a good chance at beating Portugal unless Portugal significantly up their game. I predict Poland 2-1 Portugal.

 vs

Tomorrow is Wales vs Belgium. Again, it's easy to see Belgium as favourites. Belgium got off to a rocky start, but have really started to bring their game together and their last match was really something to watch. However, equally, Wales have played their hearts out and are playing great too. I think Wales have a good chance of winning despite being the underdogs. I predict Wales 2-1 Belgium.

 vs

Saturday sees Germany take on Italy. This is a tough one to call. Both teams are playing really well and both teams play in a similar style to each other, so I think this is going to be a tough contest! I'm torn, Italy have been my underdog favourites, but I want Germany to win as I've got a bet on them to win the tournament 😜 I think it's highly likely it'll go to extra time or even penalties, but my 90 mins prediction is Germany 1-2 Italy.

 vs

Finally, Sunday sees France playing Iceland. Iceland being the serious outsiders for the tournament, yet way exceeding what was expected of them to end up in the quarter finals. Clearly, France are favourites. Their game has been a bit hit and miss except for their last game. Iceland have consistently played well against the odds. I certainly can't discount Iceland winning. I'm going to predict France 1-2 Iceland.
