Euro Competition Football Betting

The European Championships (EURO's) are the footballing highlight of the summer every four years. Contested by the biggest nations on the European scene, the Euro's have become a major football betting event. Since Greece's shock win in 2004, the last two tournaments have gone the way of outright betting favorites Spain (2008, 2012), with the next tournament scheduled for 2016 in France.

Round Up of Euro 2012

The most recent European Championship was contested in 2012, hosted jointly by Poland and Ukraine. Following their success four years prior, Spain went into the tournament as the outright betting favorites. The Spanish squad that had not only dominated European football, but world football, stormed their way to the top of their group (C), beating the Republic Of Ireland and Croatia, whilst drawing with Italy along the way. Two Xabi Alonso goals against France (quarter-finals) saw the Spaniards progress to the semi-finals, where a win on penalties against Portugal set up a final showdown with fellow group C contenders Italy. Spain stormed to final success (4-0), landing some big ante-post bets in the process.

 

Euro Championships Betting

There’s a lot of talk about the forthcoming demise of tournaments such as the European Championships and the World Cup in favour of the Champions League and other top level club tournaments. Should this happen, it will be a sad loss to us all. Football is not just about clinical precision and genius. Its real roots lie in tribal conflict, and, as long as fans behave themselves and act with honour, long may we be able to enjoy our rivalries.
