Euro 2016 Matches Tuesday 21 June
Germany vs Northern Ireland (5pm)
Match Betting: Germany 3/10, Draw 53/10, Northern Ireland 15/1
Germany did manage to beat Northern Ireland 4-0 last time they met, but that was way back in 1999, and this is a much better Northern Ireland team now who have won 4 of their last 5 games, and the only goal they’ve conceded in those games was the solitary goal in their 1-0 defeat by Poland. Whilst victory over Germany may be beyond their wildest dreams, a point would give them an excellent chance of qualifying for the knockout stages – and it will be interesting to see if they can keep Germany out like Poland did. However, assuming the Germans do want to win the group, if they score early, forcing Northern Ireland to come and attack – this could easily end-up 2-0 or 3-0 – and the head is ruling the heart on this one.

Poland vs Ukraine (5pm)
Match Betting: Poland 21/20, Draw 5/2, Ukraine 10/3
Both teams entered the tournament in decent form, but it’s all gone wrong for the Ukraine who look dead and buried regardless of how they perform here. Meanwhile Poland, who have kept a clean sheet in 5 of their last 6 games, know that a draw will be enough to get them into the knockout stages. You have to fancy that Poland will play it tight, and it looks worth backing them to win 1-0 and also backing the game to finish 0-0.

Correct Score 0-0 @ 15/2 (Skybet)
Spain vs Croatia (8pm)
Match betting: Spain 21/20, Draw 11/5, Croatia 50/13
This is a game in which a draw for both teams sees them through to the knockout stages, and it would be no surprise if neither team committed as many players in attacking positions as normal. Add in the fact that Spain have now gone their last 6 competitive matches without conceding a goal, and Croatia looked like matching that until distracted by crowd problems against the Czech Republic – it’s easy to see this being 0-0.
Correct Score: 0-0 @ 13/2 (Skybet, Hills)
Czech Republic vs Turkey (8pm)
Match Betting: Czech Republic 6/4, Draw 45/17, Turkey 21/10
This match should be played in completely different fashion to the other match in Group D, as a win for either side could mean they sneak through as one of the best third-placed losers, with the Czech Republic having the best chance of the two of achieving that having already secured a point. It’ a tough one to call though as the two teams met in Qualifying, with the away side winning both legs. However, the Czech Repulic haven’t won any of their last four games and, as they may offer Turkey more space to manoeuvre than either Croatia or Spain, the Turks look a better value bet.
