Articles Euro 2012 Betting Tip: Germany to lift the trophy

Spain will play without key men this summer and Germany are a real force ahead of Euro 2012 tournament. Ethan Rowe, tipster, explains why you shouldn't put your money elsewhere.

As the regular season across the continent come to an end, the attention turns to Euro 2012 who is now just few days away. At we have been analysing the form of main players across Europe to give you  useful insights into the Poland and Ukraine tournament.

Spain are currently favourite at 3.80 to defend the European Championship title. We don't think bookmakers have got it right this time and  we won't be betting on them. With a few exceptions, such as Juan Mata, Torres and Soldado, the bulk of Spain's squad consist of players from Barcelona and Real Madrid. Both teams have been played so many games  this season and key players have been involved in around 60 official games since last summer.

In addition to this, Del Bosque's have some serious selection problems that will make his life even more difficult: Spain's all-time goalscorer David Villa will not be there and Del Bosque will have to find some alternatives to what is a serious problem: Raul has been in fine form in Bundesliga scoring 19 goals in all competitions this season and Fernando Torres is recently getting close to his best Liverpool days. Roberto Soldado will probably be the man that will fill the gap: the striker has had a very positive season in Valencia scoring 24 times.

Meanwhile, second favourites Germany is at 4.30. They already did their job very well in South Africa and since than their key players have had very good experiences with major clubs in Europe. They will also be much fresher than the Spanish players as the Germans have only had on average 45 matches. It could be a small difference but coupled with the fact that Spain also have a long list of players unavailable may just tip the balance away from the reigning champions.
