Euro 2016 Semi Final Betting Tips PT 1

In what has proven to be an absolutely fascinating iteration of the Euro Football Tournament, we are now set for the final four to battle it out and the next series of matches will determine who is going to wind up facing off against each other in the final. Both semi-final fixtures look to be really interesting contests from a betting perspective and you have to assume that there is a lot on the line for all four clubs.


Probably the most surprising inclusion to the final four Euro 2016 nations is upstarts Wales, who have not been in a major tournament since the 1950s and have pulled off a steady stream of impressive victories over the last few weeks. Picking up where their larger neighbours England disappointed significantly, Wales have built up some excellent performances with plenty to be excited about in the next contest.

The Welsh side face off against Portugal and many have commented that the Portuguese have actually underperformed this entire time – rarely actually winning any matches in regulation time and ultimately being bailed out late into extra time or winning on penalties.

Cristiano Ronaldo and his teammates go into the contest with a very interesting price of about 5/4 with most major bookmakers – many would have expected them to be odds-on to defeat Wales – who are ranked around 70th in the world right now. However, their steady stream of iffy matches mean that a lot of the bookmakers feel as though it is bound to catch up with them eventually and there are a lot of punters out there who think that Wales have both the fight and the verve to get the job done and grab a result.

The big face off is obviously between Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale – both teammates at venerable Spanish club Real Madrid. The last match for Wales, however, proved that all of the other players are more than willing to step up and have their names counted when it truly matters the most.

The bookmakers have priced the Welsh side at a competitive listing of around 16/5 to win the match in regulation time – and there is every chance that they might do that having absolutely conquered Belgium – currently ranked second in the world – by a whopping 3-1 margin in their last outing. And that's even more impressive when you consider that the 3 goals came from when Wales were down 1-0 to the Belgians.
