The second knockout stage game will take place between Greece and Germany from Poland. All Euro 2012 odds can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
The Germans come into the knockout stage as maybe the favorite to win the entire tournament. They went 3-0 in their group play and have gotten better as each match has progressed. Some think that they have not even reached their peak yet as a team which is scary for the rest of the teams left in the tournament. The main question regarding this team coming into the tournament was their defense, which has been stellar in all three games. The Germans will be well aware that although the Greeks are heavy underdogs they will come out and play hard, and they will have to match their intensity right out of the gate.
Greece is coming off a very dramatic 1-0 victory over Russia to advance out of the group stage. In that game however they lost their best player which will certainly be a big loss heading into this game. It will be interesting to see from a strategical standpoint how the Greek coaching staff plans to attack the mighty Germans. We know that Greece will come out and play extremely hard which is been a linchpin to their success so far this tournament. If Greece has any chance of upset Germany they will need to play hard like usual and also have a little bit of luck go their way.
We like the Under for total goals scored in this match because we expect Greece to come out and play extremely conservative to try and stay in the match. While we are fairly confident that Germany will win we like the Under for total goals scored better at best online sportsbooks.
