We now have eight teams left at Euro 2016, with Germany v Italy the highlight clash of the last eight stage
England and Spain bowed out of Euro 2016 at the last sixteen stage, with eight teams left standing and that includes Wales and Iceland.
Wales face their toughest assignment to date on Friday evening, with the Reds facing a Belgium side who swept aside Hungary in their previous game although the Red Devils might not find it so easy against Chris Coleman’s side.
Gareth Bale has scored three goals thus far in the tournament, with the Real Madrid forward likely to trouble a Belgian defence that conceded twice against Italy, although Belgium do have some great attacking players of their own.
On Thursday, the first quarter final clash takes place between Poland and Portugal, with the Poles unconvincing when beating the Swiss on Saturday, while the Portuguese needed an extra-time winner to beat Croatia.
On Saturday night, we will see Germany clash with Italy and this promises to be something special. Die Mannschaft are chasing down a European Championship success to go with their world crown, while the Azzurri have already enjoyed two excellent victories at this tournament.
The Italians have beaten Belgium and Spain, with Antonio Conte getting the best from a modest group of players and they have to have a chance against the Germans.
Finally, England’s conquerors travel to Paris to face the French, with Les Bleus massive favourites to overcome Iceland although the so-called minnows can’t be taken lightly after a well-drilled victory against the Three Lions.
France are now the outright favourites to win Euro 2016, with Paddy Power offering 3/1 that Les Bleus claim a victory in this tournament although a win against Iceland would set up a tricky last four encounter against Germany or Italy.
Germany are 3/1 with BetVictor to win the tournament. They are world champions and retain several of the players that helped them triumph in Brazil.
Belgium are 4/1 chances with bet365, with the Red Devils in the top-half of the draw and they face Wales before a potential semi-final clash with Poland or Portugal.
