Having won their fourth World Cup in 2014, Germany are looking to claim their fourth European Championships as they head to France this summer as one of the tournament favourites. Having failed to win the tournament since Euro 96 in England, Joachim Low’s squad this year blends a mix of experienced internationals and exciting young talent. Having faced off against Poland during their qualification for the tournament finals, Germany once again find themselves up against their neighbours in Group C. Along with Ukraine and Northern Ireland, it will be unthinkable if Ozil and Co do not reach the latter stages in France, where some of Europe’s elite will be waiting for them.
While Germany perhaps do not have many standout names in their side, their ruthless efficiency for which they are famous, once again makes them one of the leading contenders this year. The likes of Thomas Muller and Mario Gomez are likely to be the main goal scoring threat for the Germans, in a team which averaged 72% possession during their qualifying matches. Bookies.com offer the best bookmaker odds from across the web, with Germany offered best football bet odds of 4/1 to claim glory at Euro 2016. For those of you who are betting they can do it, it might be wise to place your bets now, as recent friendly defeats have improved the odds.
Elsewhere, the likes of usual suspects Spain, England and hosts France are almost certain to join Germany in the last 16 of the competition, in what could well be one of the most competitive in recent history. With no clear favourite for the tournament this year, why not make use of a free bet from bookies.com for a risk free football bet this summer. Or if you perhaps fancy a repeat of Euro 2004, which saw rank outsiders Greece lift the trophy in Portugal, Croatia and Poland look like your best options this year at 28/1 and 50/1 respectively with bookies.com.
The latter stages of the tournament are scheduled to take place from the 25th June, giving punters ample opportunity to pick their favourites having seen the opening fixtures.
