Spain 4/11 For Final Spot

Spain eased into the semi final of the Euros and William Hill make them the 6/4 favourites to win the tournament, ahead of Germany. Spain will now face Portugal in the semi final and Hills make them 4/11 to make the final (2/1 not to).

“Spain were aided in their progression by a lacklustre France side, but despite this it would take a brave man to back against them now – highlighted by the £1m plus liability we have on them,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Euros winner: 7/4 Germany; 7/4 Spain; 6/1 Portugal; 9/1 England; 11/1 Italy

Top goalscorer: 15/8 Mario Gomez; 2/1 Cristiano Ronaldo; 9/2 Fernando Torres; 20/1 Cesc Fabregas; 25/1 Wayne Rooney; 25/1 Xabi Alonso; 40/1 BAR

Spain/Portugal to qualify for the final: 4/11 Spain; 2/1 Portugal

1/8 For Balotelli To Receive Retrospective Ban

Mario Baolotelli could well face retrospective action after appearing to stamp on the head of Scott Parker. Bookmakers, William Hill, are offering odds of 1/8 that Balotelli receives a four match ban from the FA and 9/2 that he does not. With Balotelli already having one red card to his name, William Hill are odds on, at 4/7 that he does not receive another this season, although he is 9/4 to get one more red card and 7/2 to get two or more.

“Balotelli is a volatile character and is always likely to be in the headlines but we think that while it is likely that he will receive a ban this time around, it could be the shot in the arm that turns his season around,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Will Balotelli receive a ban relating to Scott Parker Incident on Sunday: 1/8 yes; 9/2 no

Balotelli Red cards this season (only includes red cards shown on pitch and not retrospective bans): 4/7 one; 9/4 two; 7/2 three or more

Wilshere Or Carroll 11/2 To Still Play In Denmark Despite Being Left Out

Jack Wilshere and Andy Carroll have been left out of Stuart Pearce’s England U21 squad. William Hill have shortened the odds of Spain winning the tournament slightly from 5/2 to 9/4. England are 4/1 and Czech Republic are 11/2. Hills offer 11/2 that either Andy Carroll or Jack Wilshere take part in the tournament in Denmark, either due to withdrawal or injury.

“Wilshere and Carroll have been left out of England’s squad after tough seasons and this has improved Spain’s chances of winning the U21 European Championships,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

William Hill Odds:

U21 European Championships Outright: 9/4 Spain; 4/1 England; 11/2 Czech Republic; 7/1 Denmark; 8/1 Switzerland; 9/1 Iceland; 10/1 Ukraine; 20/1 Belarus

Nasri And Wenger Could Face Spell On The Touchlines: But You Bet A Fine Will Suffice

Arsene Wenger and Samir Nasri have been charged by UEFA following their comments made after the Barcelona game on Tuesday. William Hill are offering 6/4 that Nasri is on the receiving end of a fine but no ban and Wenger is 5/4 to receive the same punishment. Hills are offering 2/1 that Samir Nasri gets a two match ban, while Wenger is 7/4 to be sent to the stands for Arsenal’s next two European fixtures.
