Bet the Monday EURO2020 Knockout Round: Miller picks Croatia vs Spain, France vs Switzerland
Defending World Cup champion France goes in search of double with UEFA EURO 2020 RO16 contest
After watching Italy and Belgium struggle mightily over the weekend, and the Netherlands exit the tournament, France and Spain must think they have a good shot to win the UEFA EURO 2020 tournament.
France, especially, as the 2018 World Cup winner, must now be given a boost, after coasting through the group stage games. Les Bleus will have watched those other teams struggle, and Didier Deschamps, with a loaded squad that can rotate if needed, should put out the strongest team today against Switzerland and go for it.
Spain looked lackluster until the 5-0 destruction of Slovakia on Matchday 3, and now have jumped up the sportsbooks’ boards towards the top of the betting futures.
I would expect both teams to come through today relatively unscathed.
