Euro 2012 – Group B
Sunday June 18th – 2:45 PM

Match Odds: Portugal 2.80 / Netherlands 2.50 / Draw 3.40
Moneyline: Portugal +180 / Netherlands +150 / Draw +240
Over/Under: 2.5 goals

If Germany beats Denmark in the other group match Holland could still progress, but they have to have a bigger goal differential than both Portugal and Denmark. Portugal can progress with a win and that would also eliminate Holland, who were the 2010 World Cup runner up.

Since the Dutch have to win and win big look for them to really push the envelope on offense facing a Portugal defense that has their issues.

Holland came into the Euro Championship having scored the most goals in the qualification stages, but so far in this competition they only have 1 goal in 2 matches.

Portugal looked like they would win easily in their last match after going up 2-0 facing Denmark, but the Danes came back and Portugal needed a late goal to escape with a win. The Portuguese have not played the cross well in this competition and that is a big concern for their defense. [ad-3678122]

Pepe is the central defender for Portugal and he will have to play well in this match. He not only has to play good defense, but since the Dutch will attack from the opening whistle he has to begin the counter attack when given chances.

Robin Van Persie scored the most goals in the England Premier League this season and has scored the lone goal in the Euro for Holland. He has to find his game in this match and be THE guy on offense. MF Wesley Sneijder has to also help out on offense and feed Van Persie the ball up front.

Cristiano Ronaldo missed some pretty easy chances against Denmark and the Real Madrid FW must pressure the Holland defense in this match. If the Dutch can shut him down they have a much better chance to win.

Netherlands’ Euro 2012 Matches

June 9th Denmark 1, Netherlands 0
June 13th Germany 2, Netherlands 1

Portugal’s Euro 2012 Matches

June 9th Germany 1, Portugal 0
June 13th Portugal 3, Denmark 2

Jason’s Pick: I think Holland is the better team and they have played in high-pressure matches before. I think Van Persie will come alive in this match and the Dutch will not be stopped, as they will win by a score of 3-1.
