EURO16: The Last Eight

With just eight teams left in Euro16, SPAGames predictions game is in its final throws. We take some time to see who can really take the title with just seven matches left to play.

 

Poland v Portugal

The current top three all have Poland as their Pot 4 team. If Poland defeat Portugal in the first quarter-final on Thursday, the top three would have at least a seven point lead over fourth place Rachel on 99 points.

Other than the top three, seven other people chose Poland, including Shaun in sixth and Thomas, who still has all four Pot Teams in play.

As far as Portugal goes, the only interested party here is Sarah. A Portuguese win would see Sarah ‘challenging’ for tenth.

 

Wales v Belgium

Wales are the only Pot 2 representatives still in the latter stages of EURO16. If they were to edge past an improving Belgium, Rachel would be right in the mix for a top three finish. Alex, currently second, would be nicely placed to challenge for top spot also.

Just one person chose Belgium as their Pot 1 team – Woy. Unfortunately, after a strong start, Woy is now languishing in 12th place.

 

Germany v Italy

Having never beaten Italy in a major international tournament, the sixteen people who selected Germany in Pot 1 have every right to be nervous ahead of Saturday’s match. If Germany were to fall at the quarter-final stage after Spain lost in Round Two, then only two players would have a Pot 1 team left!

Two of the top three have Germany (Mark & Alex) along with Rachel in fourth. Those in the top five who had Spain (Ant & Jason) will be hoping for an Italian victory.

Foolishly (perhaps) nobody chose Italy as their Pot 1 team.

 

France v Iceland

Iceland Celebrate
The tournaments surprise team, Iceland, celebrate with their fans.

Of all the Quarter-Finals, this one seems the most straightforward to predict. Hosts and many pundits favourites, France, against minnows (and England’s conquerors) Iceland.

Everybody chose France as their Pot 3 team (apart from Simon – but we don’t like to talk about that!), so nothing much is going to change regardless of the result on Sunday evening.

Just Jason selected Iceland in Pot 4. Currently sitting just off the top pace in fifth, he’ll be willing Iceland to upset the odds. But having already lost Switzerland and Spain, a prize paying finish looks unlikely for Jason.
