Euro 2020 Quarter Finals: Switzerland vs Spain & Belgium vs Italy

It is now very much the business end of Euro 2020 and with the likes of the much-fancied France, Portugal and Netherlands having both been eliminated at the last 16 stage, it looks to be a very open competition. Switzerland overcame World Champions France on penalties, whilst Spain edged out World Cup runners-up Croatia in an 8-goal thriller. Belgium had too much for defending European and Nations League winners Portugal whilst Italy have been quietly going about their business under Roberto Mancini.

Switzerland vs Spain – Saint Petersburg

Match Winner Odds:

Switzerland – $4.25

Spain – $0.72

Draw – $2.76

Switzerland

It has been a tournament to remember for Switzerland who prevailed in a tough group to reach the last 8 of a major tournament for the first time in their history. An opening game draw with Wales was followed up with a thumping by Italy but their win over Turkey sealed 3rd place for them and they cashed in with a gritty but deserved penalty win over France and they will be playing with freedom here.

Spain

Similarly, Spain failed to impress in their opening two games – drawing with both Sweden and Poland to heap the pressure on Luis Enrique. But a 5-0 thumping of Slovakia was followed up with a remarkable 5-3 (AET) win over Croatia and they look to have plenty of momentum within the camp and are aiming to make it 3 European Championship wins out of 4 – having lifted the trophy in 2008 and 2012.

Odds and Predictions

Neither side have been able to stop scoring of late and although there is plenty on the line, a very open game is in prospect here.

Both teams to score – YES – 0.90

Ferran Torres has been in sublime form for Spain of late and the Manchester City winger will be looking to add to his tally of two goals for the tournament.

Ferran Torres to score anytime 1.78

Score Prediction:

Switzerland 1 – 3 Spain – 12.79

Result Prediction:

Switzerland have outperformed expectations at this tournament, but they had to dig deep to beat France and a confident Spain side could be a bridge too far for them here.

Spain to win the match – $0.72

Belgium vs Italy – Munich

Match Winner Odds:

Belgium – $2.42

Italy – $1.35

Draw – $2.21

Belgium

2018 World Cup bronze medallists Belgium are in the midst of a golden generation but need to turn that into silverware. They were way too good for all in front of them in the group stages and they found another gear to overcome Portugal last time out, but this could be a very stern test for Roberto Martinez’s men.

Italy

Few sides have displayed the fluency and attacking prowess that Italy have so far at Euro 2020 but their display against Austria was a timely reminder that anybody can beat anybody at this tournament. Roberto Mancini will have been pleased to see his side dig deep to win that one and they will need to be bang up for this against an impressive Belgian side.

Odds and Predictions

Neither of these two sides play on the back foot and goals look on the cards here.

Both teams to score – YES – 0.98

Romelu Lukaku is a perennial goal scorer at this level, and he will be looking to add to his tally of two for the tournament.

Romelu Lukaku to score anytime – 1.85

Score Prediction:

Belgium 2 – 1 Italy – $11.06

Result Prediction:

This looks set to be one of the biggest games of the competition so far, between two excellent sides. Italy have impressed throughout the competition, but this could be Belgium’s turn to go big at a major tournament and they could upset the odds and win this one.

Belgium to win the match – 2.42
