Starting at the top, Mario Gomez and Cristiano Ronaldo lead the list of remaining players on the top scorer list with 3 each and it’s the German that commands 15/8 favouratism via Betfred. With Gomez being the focal point of a fairly rampant German attack, he is the obvious choice as they are widely expected to beat Italy and make the final. Staying with the Germans, Miroslav Klose is 33/1 with Boylesports but with just one goal and limited chances to start, their is only one realistic bet in Joachim Low’s camp.
Ronaldo, 9/4 at Coral, has been in great form in the competition and again is a focal point for his team’s attack. However with the Portuguese coming up against Spain and plans afoot to man mark Ronaldo out of the game, he may struggle to find chances.
Sticking with Spain, Fernando Torres, Cesc Fabregas and Xabi Alonso all have two goals and they are not an easy team to predict where the goals will come from. Torres is William Hill’s 7/1 chance to top score in the Euros but with his only threatening performance against Ireland, and Spain’s decision to not play strikers, it has to be wiser to follow the 20/1 (with Coral) about Cesc Fabregas. Stan James go 5/2 for Fabregas to top score for Spain which looks tempting.
Finally, at Italy, four players sit on one goal and Mario Balotelli is easily the biggest goal threat. Skybet have 66/1 on him to top the goalscorer charts while Andrea Pirlo is a whopping 150/1 at Paddy Power. In terms of the Italian squad, Blue Square’s 5/2 about Balotelli to be his nation’s top scorer is worth an interest, especially if he snatches one against the Germans.
