Iberian rivals Portugal and Spain clash in what should be a monumental first Euro 2012 semi-final on Wednesday night.
Euro 2012 betting odds still have Spain as one of the frontrunners for the tournament, but Vicente del Bosque’s men have not shown the scintillating form of recent years in Ukraine and Poland as yet. La Roja have not looked overly tested as yet either however, as a draw against Italy has been followed up by wins over Republic of Ireland, Croatia and France to make this stage. Xabi Alonso scored a brace against Les Bleus in the last game, whilst the world champions have decisions to make over which players to start. Titan Bet’s Euro 2012 betting tips lean towards a Spanish victory, as they are the favourites with odds of 1.40 to win.
Portugal have put an opening day defeat to Germany behind them to beat the likes of Denmark, Netherlands and Czech Republic to make this stage. Paulo Bento’s men have looked more dangerous of late due to the upsurge in form of main man and captain Cristiano Ronaldo, who has three competition goals. The likes of Joao Moutinho and Miguel Veloso will need to be at their best to counter the Spanish midfield, whilst CR7 will be given the responsibility of providing the thrust and penetration to get goals. Titan Bet have Portugal at odds of 2.80 to win in normal time.
This will be a passionate affair, with the Portuguese the most attacking side that Spain have faced to date. My Euro 2012 football betting tip is a 2-1 win to Portugal, with Titan Bet having odds of 2.20 for both teams to score.
