Get On Ronaldo At 5/1

Live on BBC1: Wed 19.45: Spain are Betfred’s evens favourites to beat Portugal in the Euro 2012 semi-final but an upset could be on the cards.

Perhaps not surprisingly, bookmakers are siding with world and European champions Spain ahead of their mouth watering Euro 2012 semi-final showdown against neighbours Portugal and the passing masters are evens at best with Betfred to get the better of their rivals in normal time.

It’s 12/5 courtesy of Boylesports to be all square after 90 minutes in Donetsk, where Coral post 11/2 against a 1-1 scoreline but the Portuguese, led by the inspirational Cristiano Ronaldo, have impressed so far and if their talismanic skipper is at the top of this game, they could cause an upset in the Donbass Arena.

William Hill quote Paulo Bento’s men at a chunky 7/2 to emerge victorious and although some punters might be cautious given how dominant Vicente del Bosque’s charges were against France in the quarter final but Les Bleus approached that clash a touch negatively and Croatia demonstrated in the group phase that Spain can be vulnerable if teams go at them. Portugal are likely to do just that and they’re 2/1 (Skybet) to ultimately qualify for the final.

It’s likely to be an open, entertaining affair so a total of three or more goals appears overpriced at 13/8 with BetVictor and with that in mind Stan James’ 18/1 for Bento’s troops to finish on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline looks huge.

Alternatively, Paddy Power rate Portugal at 5/1 to prevail by a one-goal margin and bet365 combine a victory for the Portuguese with a match tally of more than 2.5 goals at odds of 15/2.

Ronaldo is set to be the game’s key figure and at 6/1 (Ladbrokes) he’s the value pick in the first goal scorer market. The Real Madrid man meanwhile, is 2/1 courtesy of Paddy Power to get on the scoresheet at any time and BetVictor price him at an alluring 5/1 to be named man of the match.

Recommended Bets:
Cristiano Ronaldo to be named man of the match – 5/1 (BetVictor)
