It is a straight shootout between England and Ukraine for Euro 2012 quarter-final qualification, as the winners will be guaranteed a place in the last eight.
England have got the results that they have played for so far, with a defensive set-up against France resulting in a 1-1 draw, and a more expansive game-plan against Ukraine giving them a 3-2 victory. Roy Hodgson’s men can qualify with a draw, but will look to win to potentially top the group. The Three Lions are boosted by the return of Wayne Rooney, and Hodgson will have a decision to make in terms of who to play up front with the Manchester United man, as both Danny Welbeck and Andy Carroll netted in the last game. Titan Bet offer the best Euro 2012 betting odds of 2.10 for an English victory.
Ukraine will have home support at their backs and as such will look to beat England and make it through to the next round. The hosts will think back to their last meeting with the British side, when they beat England 1-0 in Dnipro back in 2009. Oleg Blokhin’s men beat Sweden 2-1 in their opener before being outplayed by France and losing 2-0. Former Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko netted twice against the Swedes and will have a point to prove when he faces the English side and some of his former club team-mates. Titan Bet give odds of 3.55 for a Ukrainian win.
England are favourites but must not sit back too deep despite only needing a draw to make the next round. My Euro 2012 betting tip is a 0-0 draw, which Titan Bet have at odds of 10.00.
