Spain v Germany
Kick-off time - 17:00
Best Bets - Spain v Germany
Fabian Ruiz (ESP) 1+ SOT
Rodri (ESP) Card
This looks like one of the best betting games so far with my favourite bet F.Ruiz shot on target at even money looking like a cracker with shots on target in every game so far (2 or more in 3 games as well).

Another bet that has won twice for me is Rodri card with 2 cards in 3 games so far and facing a dynamic German side who will draw plenty of fouls.

Portugal v France
Kick-off time - 20:00
Best Bets - Portugal v France
France to win
Eduardo Camavinga (FRA) Card
France have dominated most of their games and their non-penalty xG is better than the goals they have scored so far. With that said I wouldn't be surprised if they win this comfortably against a shaky Portuguese defence.

Rabiot is suspended so Camavinga is likely to come in. He was booked on his last start for France and faces a good Portugal midfield.

The Euros Friday Tips: Analysing and Picking Winners for July 5, 2024

Friday’s fixtures in the UEFA Euro 2024 quarter-finals feature key matchups including Spain vs. Germany and Portugal vs. France. Here’s a detailed analysis of these games, along with tips on how to pick winners for various bet types.

Match Analysis

We start with a thorough examination of each match, focusing on key factors:
1. Form and Performance: Evaluating recent form is essential. Spain has been one of the standout teams in the tournament, showcasing both offensive and defensive strengths. Germany, playing on home soil, has also been impressive, leveraging their strong squad and tactical discipline. Portugal has shown resilience and defensive solidity, while France has displayed their attacking prowess and tactical versatility.
2. Head-to-Head Records: Historical encounters provide valuable context. Spain and Germany have had numerous competitive fixtures, often resulting in close contests. Portugal and France have also faced each other frequently in major tournaments, with France generally having a slight edge in recent encounters.
3. Injuries and Suspensions: The availability of key players significantly impacts outcomes. All teams are likely to field their strongest squads, given the importance of the quarter-final stage. Any last-minute injuries or suspensions could influence betting decisions.
4. Tactics and Strategy: Understanding team strategies is crucial. Spain’s possession-based play and quick transitions contrast with Germany’s disciplined defense and efficient counterattacks. France’s fluid and versatile play will challenge Portugal’s solid defensive setup, which relies on quick counterattacks led by Cristiano Ronaldo.

Bet Types and Strategies

We provide tips for various bet types to cater to different betting preferences:
1. Match Result (1X2): Predicting the outcome is straightforward. Spain vs. Germany is likely to be closely contested, but Spain’s current form gives them a slight edge. France is favored to win against Portugal, leveraging their attacking power and tactical flexibility.
2. Both Teams to Score (BTTS): This bet requires both teams to score at least one goal. For Spain vs. Germany, BTTS is a strong consideration given both teams’ offensive capabilities. Portugal vs. France is less likely to see both teams scoring based on recent form.
3. Over/Under Goals: This involves betting on whether the total number of goals scored will be over or under a specified number. For Spain vs. Germany, over 2.5 goals is reasonable given their attacking prowess. Portugal vs. France might also lean towards under 2.5 goals, reflecting France’s defensive strength
4. Correct Score: Predicting the exact score is challenging but offers high rewards. A 2-1 win for Spain against Germany is a realistic prediction. France vs. Portugal could end in a 1-0 win for France.
5. Player-Specific Bets: Bets like “First Goal Scorer” or “Anytime Goal Scorer” rely on individual player analysis. For Spain, Álvaro Morata is a strong candidate for the first goal scorer. In the France vs. Portugal match, Kylian Mbappé is a likely pick for anytime goal scorer.
