Euro 2024 | BestofBets’ quarter-final punts

Euro 2024, Matchday 1. last 16, quarter-final, semi-final

As Euro 2024 edges every nearer toward the final, just eight teams are left standing as we reach the quarter-final stage in Germany.

With Friday’s opening double-header taking blockbuster heading, Saturday’s third and fourth ties could prove rather more cautious.

So, across the four games, where have BestofBets got our eye trained on this weekend?


Spain vs Germany – Andrich to be carded – 12/5 (SpreadEx)

The quarter-final line-up begins in potentially electric fashion, as hosts Germany welcome Spain to Stuttgart.

It is hard to read how this game might turn out, with both capable of lightning counter-attacks, but could cancel each other out.

Goals might be the tempting angle here, but with Anthony Taylor in charge, the Englishman in the middle will want to underline his authority.

Given the pace with which Spain can, have and will showcase here, all eyes are on the German midfield to stop those lines of attack.

Robert Andrich will be central to that, and with a Matchday 1 booking already under his belt, a reserved showing in his last three outings may come to an end here.

Indeed, set to man-mark Pedri and the flying Nico Williams, Andrich looks a good shout to go in the referee’s notebook in 90 mins.


Portugal vs France – Both teams to score – 2nd half – 7/2 (William Hill)

If Spain-Germany was the day’s taster, Portugal facing France in Hamburg could be quite the extra helping.

A clash billed as Mbappe vs Ronaldo, neither have set the tournament alight, but this will be their chance in the spotlight.

Arguably, Portugal have been the better in front of goal during the Group stages, but like France, laboured in the last 16.

However, the tools both managers, Didier Deschamps and Roberto Martinez, have at their disposal – particularly off the bench – can serve them and us as punters well.

Will there be an heir of caution at play here? Perhaps, and that might set up a storming second 45 minutes.

If we look at the potential candidates to come off the bench, Giroud, Kolo-Muani for France and Neto, Conceicao and Jota spell goals.

If they don’t flow before the break, that should change after half-time and we can see both teams on the scoresheet on resumption.


Netherlands vs Turkey – Gakpo to score in 90 mins – 2/1 (Unibet)

Looking to steer clear of what could be a cagey England-Switzerland meeting, Holland and Turkey close out the quarter-finals in Berlin.

The Dutch are well placed to reach the last four in Germany, 36 years on from their 1988 crowning, but face a Turkey side that out-pressed the impressive Austrians and clung on last time out.

Memphis Depay has ably led the line for Ronald Koeman, but again has struggled for goals.

Instead, Cody Gakpo has enjoyed himself this summer, and aside from a turgid goalless draw with France, the Liverpool man netted in the other three games.

Sitting tied for the Golden Boot, Gakpo can stretch away here, and a young Turkish side are unlikely to be sitting back.

Vincenzo Montella’s men will be no pushovers as they look to reach a Euro semi-final for the first time since 2008, but Gakpo has looked a menace all tournament.

We see both teams finding the net in what could be a very good watch, and Gakpo can send punters onto a tidy win at decent price.


The Euro 2024 quarter-finals begin on Friday.
