Spain v France betting tips

Spain take on France tonight in the quarter-finals of Euro 2012, and ahead of kick-off in Donetsk, 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...

1) Back Under 2.5 goals @ 8/13 with Ladbrokes

It could be a long night for Spain and France if, as expected, defences hold sway and it finishes as a low-scoring draw at the end of 90 minutes. Five of the six matches the teams have played so far have been ‘unders’ on the goals count.

2) Back France to qualify @ 9/4 with Blue Square

While Spain are the odds-on favourites to win tonight, this looks a decent value bet simply because the reigning champions have not looked as good at Euro 2012 (at least so far) as they did four years ago and just two years ago at the 2010 World Cup. If France can keep it tight and stay in the game until late on, they could nick a late goal or prevail in extra time or on penalties.

3) France to win on penalties @ 12/1 with Bet365

Apart from thrashing a beleaguered Republic of Ireland side, Spain have not looked like putting any team to the sword yet at Euro 2012. France are expected to push them all the way and are worth an interest to sneak through in a shootout.

4) No goalscorer @ 15/2 with Sky Bet

We're already backing Under 2.5 Goals, and goals are likely to be at a premium in this game. Spain, with Fernando Torres up front, do not give the impression they will be a free-scoring side when they come up against the better teams. This option of course covers 0-0 and the only goal(s) being an own goal.

5) Draw HT and FT @ 5/1 with Coral

This outcome came up in France and Spain’s opening Euro 2012 matches and was very close to occurring again when the holders played Croatia, only for Jesus Navas to score a late winner. There may not be much between the teams so the stalemate at the end of each half looks the way to go.
