Euro 2016 continues on Friday, with Italy, Croatia and Spain all in action

The action comes thick and fast when it comes to the 2016 European Championships, with Italy playing their second Group E game on Friday following their impressive 2-0 win against Belgium.

The Azzurri meet a Sweden side who weren’t particularly convincing when drawing 1-1 with the Republic of Ireland, although Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be looking to cause mischief against a sturdy Italian defence.

Croatia are strong favourites to beat Czech Republic and confirm their place in the last sixteen of Euro 2016, with Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic likely to be pulling the strings in midfield, although the Czechs might be more ambitious than they were when losing 1-0 against Spain.

Then we have Spain taking on Turkey and we might see La Roja dominate possession before eventually finding the breakthrough against a Turkey side who know a point will be enough if they can then land a killer blow against the Czech Republic in the final game.

It should be an intriguing day, with BetVictor offering 17/1 that Italy, Croatia and Spain all win their games to nil.
