Group B Deciders

On Sunday, we have the final round of matches in the Group of Death. One or even two of the powers in European football will be heading home after their respective games.

The Netherlands have been poor in the tournament and they need to win by two clear goals against Portugal and hope the Germans beat the Danes to progress.

Holland are 8/5 to win the clash, the draw is 11/5 and Portugal are 7/4. The 7/4 on Portugal looks a steal, the Dutch will be making changes to their starting eleven. They have been poor at the back in both games and Portugal can take advantage of their weak defence.

The Dutch are likely to start without their anchorman Van Bommel, they will start with Van der Vaart and Huntelaar. Holland have only won one of their previous ten internationals against Portugal. If you fancy the Oranje to turn the corner, they are 8/11 draw no bet.

Portugal are even money draw no bet and the Dutch have failed to score in ten meetings against them. A goalfest is expected but a Portugal clean sheet is 14/5. Under 2.5 goals is 11/10 and Portugal are boosted by the return of defender Miguel Lopes following a cold.

Ronaldo is the star man for Portugal and he is 11/2 to open the scoring. He has yet to open his account in Euro 2012 and he can terrorise a poor Dutch defence. He will have too much pace for Heitinga.

The Dutch fans will be expecting a big performance from Robben. He has so much class and pace but he often fails to deliver on the big stage. He is 9/1 to open the scoring and he loves to shoot from distance. There have been rumours in the press though that he may be dropped following his petulant reaction to being substituted.

The other clash on Sunday is Denmark against Germany. The Danes are 5/1 to win the match, the draw is 23/10 and a Germany victory is 7/10.

The Danes can qualify if they achieve a better result than the Portuguese can manage against the Dutch. They are a good side and play well as a team. They beat the Dutch 1-0 in their opening fixture and the same scoreline against Germany is 11/1.

The Germans don't need to win but I doubt they will rest players. They only need a draw and if you fancy another shock, Denmark look big at 11/4 draw no bet. Demark or the draw is even money and I would look at backing under the goals (Under 2.5, 10/1). The Germans may win but they will not need goals and they will sit back if they grab an early lead.

Mario Gomez has scored all three of Germany's goals at Euro 2012 and he could cause the Danish problems. He is 7/2 to open scoring and 4/1 to score two or more!

Denmark have looked impressive at the back and the central defenders Simon Kjaer and Agger have plenty of experience. Denmark are 6/1 to win to nil and the clean sheet is 15/4.

Total match cards under 4 is 11/5 and it should be a clean and fair match. Neither side is dirty and the players will want to avoid bookings in case they are forced to miss a match later in the tournament.
