Euro 2020 Betting Tips – Saturday 12th June
The second day of action in Euro 2020 dawns and we are at the start of series of days with at least three fixtures.
We have action from both Group A and B today with six teams in action including one of the big favourites to win the trophy getting their campaign underway with a tricky trip to take on a team that will be on home soil.
I am hoping last night’s tips landed me a profit, but if not, then I am confident this set will do the business for me.
- Group A – Wales V Switzerland (2pm, Baku, Azerbaijan)
- Group B – Denmark V Finland (5pm, Copenhagen, Denmark)
- Group B – Belgium V Russia (8pm, Saint Petersburg, Russia)

Euro 2020 Tips: Saturday 12th June
Wales produced one of the performances of the last European Championships to reach the semifinals, where they were beaten by Portugal, but that team was flying under Chris Coleman whereas now, under caretaker manager Robert Page, results have been more modest.
They face a Switzerland side that have been in exceptionally good for of late, winning all their last six, although it should be noted that many of those wins have not come against the better sides in the world, with wins over the USA and Finland the most notable.
However, the Swiss are a very experienced team and I think in terms of the strength of their squad, they probably edge it over Wales, even with Aaron Ramsey and Gareth Bale in that team. I think Switzerland have just that bit of extra quality in more areas of the team and that will define this game I feel.
It won’t be easy for the Swiss and I am predicting another cagey encounter here, but I am backing the Swiss to land the win, probably by a 1-0 or 2-0 scoreline.
I think if you could call any team in this tournament as being underestimate, Denmark would be that team. I can’t quite see them performing the heroics of their 1992 European Championship winning squad, but I think they are more than capable of making the knockout phase and giving any team in this competition a real fight.
The Finns are in their first ever major tournament finals and their results had been improving. However, in the last six games, they have started to come unstuck a little and their recent record against the Danes doesn’t bear thinking about for Finnish fans.
This Scandinavian clash won’t be short of passion, but in terms of quality, I think the Danes are by far the stronger team and allied to their greater experience and very solid teamwork, I think that they will end up on the right end of a solid win here.
I am not sure how many the Danes will score, they tend not to be too prolific in front of goal, but I’d expect a victory to nil here.
Belgium fans probably would have hand picked this group as they have a brilliant recent record against Russia and Denmark so travelling into Russia to take on one of the host nations should not be too daunting for the number 1 ranked team in the world.
That’s not to say everything is fine in the Belgian camp. Eden Hazard has struggled for fitness all season and Kevin De Bruyne’s Champions League final injury will be a worry and I would not be surprised to see the Manchester City man playing in these games with a mask on to protect his eye socket and nose.
Russia had a strong showing in the 2018 World Cup Finals, but their record against Belgium is awful and in truth, I think they have gone backwards as a team since 2018 and I think Belgium are going to give them a few too many issues to worry about.
I can see Russia scoring, most recent games between these teams have seen both find the net, but I would expect Belgium to land the victory anyway.
