Euro 2016 – Knockout Stage Stats

Posted on June 25, 2016 by  

Our good friends over at leading Betfair software producers, Racing Traders have kindly provided us with some excellent preview material for the knockout stage of Euro 2016

Euro2016 Knockout Stage Head-to-Head Stats – By Andy Newton

So that’s the Group Stages over – if we’re all honest the tournament is yet to really hit top gear with some very cagey opening fixtures. However, you can’t blame certain sides as the pressure to get out of the group stages and not to do anything silly is huge.

Therefore, as we enter the knockout phase of Euro2016 there is a good chance the matches will be better with teams in losing positions taking more risks – you might as well lose 4-0 and have a go, rather than lose 1-0 and not take a few chances along the way. Suspensions, injuries and sides getting the full use out of their squads will also come into play with these next matches coming thick-and-fast now.

So to help you along the way through the tournament, and to keep you prepared for each game, here at RacingTraders we’ve taken a ‘quick-fire’ look at each ‘Knockout Stage’ game from a HEAD-TO-HEAD angle. (Note, we’ll be adding in the Qtr-finals, Semi-finals and Final to this piece).

You’ll see below that there are some ‘standout stats’ when certain sides have met in the past and hopefully these will give you a few different betting angles to take into each game – plus we’ll also give you our RacingTraders best bet.
