With Euro 2012 just around the corner all the talk is about which teams can go on all the way and win the tournament.
Group B looks to be the most competitive out of the four with plenty of talent of show. Germany, Holland, Portugal and Denmark are the teams that go head to head.
Looking at Germany to begin with, they are as ever one of the favourites to go all the way and win the competition. The Germans were superb in qualifying and did not drop a single point.
They were a brilliant young side back in the World Cup 2010 so two years on are sure to be even stronger. After finishing runners up in Euro 2008, Germany will be desperate to go one better this time out.
As for Holland, they are another favourite to go on and win the tournament. The Dutch were runners up in the 2010 World Cup and seem to be the nearly men of these competitions.
There is no doubt Holland have one of the best attacking teams around and it is surly only a matter of time until they get their hands on a trophy.
Moving on to Portugal, despite having the big name players and undoubted talent in their squad they are not being considered as one of the contenders to lift the trophy this summer.
This could play into their favour though as the pressure may be off somewhat. With Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal have one of the World’s best players at their disposal and if they are to be successful, they must build a team around him.
Finally, Denmark are by no means a side to be written off or taken lightly especially after a qualifying campaign which saw them finish above Portugal. With no one really talking about Denmark really setting the tournament alight, they could go quietly about their business and sneak into the top two of the group.
It is no surprise that Germany are the favourites to win the group. You can back them at 2.20 (6/5) with BoyleSports to qualify in first place.
Holland will certainly be confident of finishing on top and they are being offered at 3.00 (2/1) with Coral.
Portugal know that will need to upset the odds to win Group A. BlueSQ are offering odds of 5.50 (9/2) on this happening.
Denmark are the big outsiders to run out as group winners with odds as long as 21.00 (20/1) with VC Bet.
There is usually a surprise in major tournaments at the group stages and this year it could come from Group A with one of the favourites failing to qualify. A recommended bet is for Holland and Denmark to progress to the knockout stages which has odds of 21.00 (20/1) with SkyBet.
