Scott Thornton brings you his Euro 2024 props preview as we take a look at the four quarter-finals.

On Friday night, Germany are in action against Spain. Julian Nagelsmann will be hoping that home advantage is enough for his team to triumph over a rampant Spanish outfit. Later that evening, we have a repeat of the Euro 2016 final as Portugal face France. England kick off proceedings on Saturday when they take on Switzerland. The last game of the round sees the Netherlands go toe-to-toe with Turkey.

Acca odds: 11.89

Spain vs Germany: Youthful Spain Force Tackles

Europe, Euro 2024, Friday, 5th July, 17:00 (UK)

Spain have been the most impressive side at Euro 2024 thus far. They came from a goal behind to hammer Georgia 4-1 in the last round. They are the only team to boast a 100% record having won all three of their group matches. Luis De La Fuente’s men have only conceded one goal and they will need to be solid here.

Germany are the hosts but they have handled the pressure well. Their midfield is capable of controlling the game and their dynamic frontline can cause headaches for even the most stubborn defence. Die Mannschaft will need to be at their best to keep their Euro dream alive.

The Spaniards are the second-most-tackled team in the tournament and that should come as no surprise with the direct dribbling provided by the likes of Lamine Yamal  and Nico Williams on the flanks. Their opponents have made an average of 20.75 tackles per game.

Julian Nagelsmann’s side’s tackle numbers are more modest with an average of 13 but they won’t enjoy the same level of control against Spain. These two teams locked horns at the last World Cup and Germany made 29 tackles in that game.

Portugal vs France: Misfiring Forwards Means Goal Kicks

Europe, Euro 2024, Friday, 5th July, 20:00 (UK)

Portugal needed a penalty shootout to get past Slovenia in the last round. Cristiano Ronaldo was reduced to tears after failing to convert a spot kick in extra time but it was all smiles at the final whistle. Diogo Costa’s heroics spared the Portuguese and it could be another busy evening for the keeper here.

It’s safe to say that France haven’t been at their best in this tournament. Nevertheless, they are alive and kicking. An own goal from Jan Vertonghen in the 85th minute of their last game against Belgium proved to be decisive. It was their first win since the opening game of the tournament against Austria.

Roberto Martinez’s side press high up the pitch, dominate possession and are keen to put courses in the box.  This has helped them force the most goal kicks at Euro 2024 with their opponents averaging 12 per game. Their matches overall have seen 17 goal kicks on average. Three of their four games have seen 15 goal kicks or more. 

France ranking second in terms of goal kicks against with their opponents averaging 11.75 goal kicks. Three of their four matches at this tournament have seen at least 15 goal kicks with an average of 16.75 per game.

England vs Switzerland: Three Lions’ Throw Trend

Europe, Euro 2024, Friday, 5th July, 17:00 (UK)

There has been plenty of backlash for the way that the tournament favourites have played so far but they still have a chance to end their 58-year wait for a major trophy. The Three Lions were on the cusp of elimination against Slovakia in the last round but Jude Bellingham’s overhead kick brought them level in the final minute. They went on to win it in extra time thanks to a header from Harry Kane

Switzerland were excellent as they knocked out Italy in the round of 16. The reigning champions could only muster up one shot before they fell two goals behind. The Swiss will be hoping to beat the other Euro 2021 finalists here. 

England’s patient approach with the ball under Gareth Southgate has meant their games have seen very few throws. Their matches at this tournament have seen an average of 28.5 and this bet has won in all four of their matches so far. Their qualifying matches saw 29.25 throws on average. 

There were plenty of throws in Switzerland’s opening two games against Hungary and Scotland but the numbers dropped in their more recent matches against Germany and Italy. Those clashes with highly-rated nations saw 30 and 32 throws. There were 29 throws the last time they went head-to-head with England.

  • Selection: Under 32.5 Throws In The Match (TRACKED BET)
  • Best Odds: 1.90
  • Bookmaker: bet365
  • Stake: 8/10

Netherlands vs Turkey: No Time For Turkish Delight

Europe, Euro 2024, Friday, 5th July, 20:00 (UK)

The Netherlands looked shaky in the group stages and that continued in the opening phases of their round of 16 clash with Romania. However, they looked menacing after the initial wobble and went on to win the game 3-0. Ronald Koeman’s side have every chance of going all the way despite not being amongst the favourites prior to the start of the tournament.

Turkey needed grit and determination to edge past Austria in the last round. They took a two-goal lead but a 66th minute goal from Michael Gregoritsch ensured a nervy finish. Mert Gunok made what will surely go down as the save of the tournament in the final minute of the game when he saved a head from Christoph Baumgartner.

The Dutch racked up a total of 23 shots as they coasted past Romania. They are averaging 16.89 shots per game across the 18 matches of Koeman’s second stint in charge of the national team but can exceed that mark here. They had 21 shots against Poland and were priced around the same price on the 1×2 market for that game.

The Turks conceded 21 shots in their last match. They were in the same group as the Netherlands in World Cup qualifying back in 2021. Those two matches ended with the Dutch having 20 and 29 shots. A lot has changed since then but the stats show that Turkey concedes a lot of attempts against this level of opponent. 

  • Selection:  Over 17.5 Shots For Netherlands (TRACKED BET)
  • Best Odds: 1.90
  • Bookmaker: bet365
  • Stake: 8/10
