England take on Italy tonight in the quarter-finals of Euro 2012, and ahead of kick-off in Kiev, here's a look at the Top 5 bets you should be considering if you're having a punt on what should be a thrilling clash...
The first half looks like being extremely cagey and we don't expect much in the way of first-half goals. The game may open up a bit in the second half and don't be surprised if England look to hold out for an hour or so before increasing the tempo.
In what looks on paper a very evenly-matched quarter-final, Italy can shade it thanks to their greater guile going forward. England have been robust but were completely outplayed by the Ukraine and now find themselves up against a much better side.
Both these teams look content to grab a goal and then sit on the lead, which has long been the Italian way. Cesare Prandelli’s team have the likes of Andrea Pirlo to unlock the England defence and that could give them the chance to impose a ‘catenaccio’ job.
Although Italy are fancied to sneak through in normal time, this looks a good option to cover your bet just in case it goes to an extra 30 minutes. Plus, of course, you could hit the jackpot if the only goal is an own goal.
5) Under 2 goals @ 5/4 with Bet365
Under 2.5 is just too short at around the 1/2 mark so go with there being only one goal or none. This brings in three scorelines, all of which look entirely plausible given how tight the match is expected to be.
