    Prior to the major event coming later in the summer (Rio Olympic games) bettors across the world got the chance to work some bets for the biggest football event of the year – the European Football championship which takes place in France as we speak.

    For the first time in history of the competition, 24 teams have entered the EURO and after the group stages have completed, we have entered the knockout rounds.

    Poland and Portugal are the first two teams that will enter the quarterfinals match, with the two sides playing on Thursday, June 30th. Poland qualified with much problems, beating Switzerland on penalties in a pretty tight match. Portugal however were extremely luck against Croatia, striking a 117 minute goal against Croatia to celebrate a victory.

    It is important to notice that Portugal did not win a single match in the 90′ minutes so far at the tournament, noting just how bizarre this new format is. They are clear favorites for the upcoming game and a potential win could set up a tie with Belgium or Wales.

    Despite not scoring in the opening game of the tournament, Atletico Madrid’s and France’s striker Antoine Griezmann is rated as the likely top scorer of the tournament, given a measly 3.7 odds in favor of him.
