The current European Championship will be the fourth in which our team has managed to get to the final part. In the period from 1996 to 2012, the Russian team only once, in 2000, failed to qualify. But 2008 was marked by a bronze medal, which our players honestly earned in this prestigious championship. It was in 2008 that the significant meeting of Russia-Holland took place, which ended with the sensational defeat of the “orange” team, which was one of the favorites of the Euro.
In particular, the ratio of bets made to win the Russian national football team for Euro 2012 is 21. Bets on the Portuguese national team are accepted with exactly the same coefficient. These two teams lead a group of national teams, which in the bookmaker environment was given the name "dark horses". The rest of the teams in this category include teams of the Czech Republic, Croatia, as well as the hosts of the Championship - teams of Ukraine and Poland. The odds for these teams are 51. And this is another reason for pride for the Russian fans: the figures show that, according to experts, our team has more chances to win than the host countries.
And the organization accepting the bets consider the victory at the current European Football Championship of such countries as Greece (the victory of which will return to the devoted fan 61 times the amount of his bet), Sweden (the coefficient is also 61), Ireland (81) and Denmark, which in 1992 won the Euro, but now does not demonstrate outstanding achievements in the football arena (coefficient 101).
By the way, Dick Advocaat, who is training our national team, made an honest, but too pessimistic and perhaps not too tactful remark about the role of his players in the upcoming Championship, calling it an outsider. He took Spain, Holland and Germany to the favorites, the success of which is predicted by bookmakers. Well, the coach, of course, knows better, but we will still be more painful!
But there is another good news for Russian fans - the opinion of experts regarding today's match, which will take place between the players of the teams of Russia and the Czech Republic. If you bet on the Czech Republic, if his bet plays, he expects a reward of 3.2 from his bet. But those who put on Russia, if they win their team, will increase the rate only 2.25 times.This difference between the coefficients indicates a significant advantage, which, according to bookmakers, has a team of the Sixth part of the land. If you are infected with the confidence of betting specialists, registration at the bookmaker office is suitable for you, because even a minimum rate that does not affect your budget can multiply the tension and increase the number of emotions you will watch the match with.
As for all upcoming games in Group A, the predictions of the bookmakers are again on the side of the team from Russia. Although the coach does not believe in the championship of our team, experts predict it, at least, out of their group. The rate for this event is 2.4.Bets on Poland’s victory in the group stage are 3.25, Czech fans will get a fivefold reward if successful, and bookmakers leave Greece the least chance (a factor of 5.5). As you can see, experts do not believe in the Polish national team, despite the fact that the Poles will hold all the meetings at home. This is, without doubt, a great sign for our fans.
The future fate of the national team of the second mistress of the championship - Ukraine - seems to be gloomy for companies taking bets on sports. A daredevil who bet on Ukraine, in case of winning a successful passing by the team of the group stage, will increase his bet by as much as 5.65 times. At the same time, the rate coefficient for England is much more modest - only 2.75. At the same time, in the first match of Ukraine (against Sweden), the bookmakers predict the victory of the “yellow-blue” (2.4 vs. 3.1). We wish the Ukrainian fans loyalty, and their team - good luck. It remains for us to rejoice that Russia got frankly less serious rivals.
Summarizing all the above, it can be noted that, despite the skepticism of the coach and bookmakers, we can expect bright matches with the participation of our team.We wish her good luck! And what exactly no one doubts in the least is the fact that we are waiting for incredible meetings in the heat between the strongest European teams.
