The game to open this championship round is Wales VS Denmark at 18:00 CET while the Italy VS Austria match is starting immediately after at 21:00 CET.
Let’s see what football fans can expect from these teams and which ones are given better odds of winning in sportsbooks in online casinos.
Wales VS Denmark
After a horrible start of Euro2020, Danmark managed to qualify for the Round of 16. They lost the first 2 games (0:1 to Finland and 2:1 to Belgium) but managed to score a win against Russia (4:1) in the end and secure a move to the knockout stage. This is the first time in the history of Euro2020 that a team has managed to enter the top 16 having lost the first 2 games.
Wales was the runner-up in Group A and although their last match against the Italians ended in a loss, they showed stable performance. Many hope the Dragon will repeat the success from 2016 when they as an underdog managed to reach the semi-finals. However, Denmark is seen as the probable winner of this match by the bookies with odds of 1.88 at the moment at Stake while the Dragons hold 4.90. Still, a draw wouldn’t be surprising at all or even the win by Wales. After all, no one can say that there weren’t more than a few surprises during this UEFA tournament.
Winner Prediction: Wales 2:1 Denmark
Italy VS Austria
The Azzurri are one of Euro2020 title favorites with 30 games in total without defeat. Austria on the other hand has been a bit of a surprise. However, they managed to secure a runner-up position in the group with 2 wins.
The game is played on the neutral turf in London but defeating Italy is probably not in the cards for Austria. Truthfully, based on what Azzurri have shown so far demands a more powerful opponent in order for them to end on the losing side. The online bookies are mirroring this opinion with 1.47 for the Italian national team and 7.55 for Austrians on Gamdom.
