Rep of Ireland v Croatia: Correct Score Tip

9th Jun 2012 | Euro 2012

Dunne: Needs to be colossal in defence.
1pt Ireland to win 1-0 15/2 with Betfred Place Bet

Having tipped Ireland to claim a priceless victory, a follow-up scoreline wager looks like a no-brainer. With 11 clean sheets in 14 unbeaten matches, it’s not hard to see what Trapattoni has brought to the set-up.

To say Ireland now play with a counter-attacking, Italian mentality would be a monumental understatement. They simply rely on the handful of flair players in the team - Robbie Keane, Damien Duff and Aiden McGeady - to provide the odd moment of inspiration.

Expect it to be 0-0 for a long time or, if the Irish get their noses in front, to cling on for dear life with every man behind the ball. The good news is, that in the latter scenario, Croatia may not have the guile to break them down.

Ireland to win 1-0 at best odds of 15/2 (Betfred) looks like a bargain when, frankly, most of the higher scorelines can virtually be ruled out in this Group C clash.

It will surely be low-scoring so if we think an upset is on the cards then there's value in backing 1-0 to the Azzurri at decent odds.

Germany v Italy Tip

A combination of Italian fatigue and German game-changers could be pivotal in the second half.

Germany v Italy Tip

Form and preparations both point to the same outcome in the second semi-final.

Spain v Portugal Tip

Without a proper striker, Spain's title defence may end here. The Portuguese most certainly have a man who isn't afraid to shoot.
