These are, right now, the four favorite teams to go to the semifinals of Euro 2020:
The first quarterfinal match will face Spain and Switzerland, on Friday, July 2 at 6:00 p.m.. A priori, the national team is clear favorite against the Helvetians, but in this European Championship we have already seen that that is useless. Spain passed it too bad to beat Croatia, who had tied a lost match (3-5). The same had done Switzerland vs. France, with the goal in extremis of Gavranovic (3-3 and 5-4 on penalties).
In addition, at the end of last year both teams met in the Nations League, with victory overSpanish joust in the first leg (1-0) and draw in Swiss lands (1-1). It will be a very close match, but the logical thing and my wish is that win the Spanish team. By the way, in the Swiss it is low Xhaka by penalty.
Prediction: Spain 2-0 Switzerland
The main course We will have it right after the quarter-finals of this Eurocup. Belgium and Italy are the only two teams to they have won all four of their matches so far. Both have received only 1 goal each, and they are showing very solid. They are also two very well trained teams and with personal stamp of each one of its technicians. The ideal would be a match with many goals, seeing the potential of both. Of course, in the red devils the doubts of Hazard and especially De Bruyne They are upmarket. What is clear is that none will give their arm to twist and the clash will be decided by small details. I trust a little more in Italy than in belgium
Pick: Italy 2-1 Belgium
The third quarter match will be between two teams with those that nobody, or almost nobody, counted for this round. Denmark overcame Eriksen’s blow already two defeats in the first two days and has 8 goals in the last two games, after paths defeats Russia (4-1) and Wales (4-0). For its part, the Czech Republic has shown itself to be a very solid bloc and a lot of offensive speed, which has barely conceded two goals and has surprised rivals such as Croatia (1-1) and especially the Netherlands in the second round (0-2), two of the favorites. I can expect anything from the game, with Damsgaard and Schick as the main attractions in each of the two teams. I will say that he wins Denmark on penalties.
Prediction: Czech Republic 1 (3) – 1 (5) Denmark *
The last will be also the most uneven, a priori, of the four quarter-final matches. England have not played brilliant football despite the level of their squad, but it has been very efficient. Especially in defense, where he has not conceded a goal in four games. It also has in Sterling to one of the men of the tournament, with 3 goals, and Harry Kane already made his debut against Germany (2-0). In front they will have a Ukraine that was seen out after of two days, but in the end it passed as one of the best third and yesterday gave the chime against Sweden in the last gasp of extra time (2-1). I said, in principle England should win without many surprises, but I can not assure anything with the Eurocup that we carry so far.
Prediction: England 3-0 Ukraine
