Germany v Denmark, Lviv, Sunday, 7.45pm
Holland v Portugal, Kharkiv, Sunday, 7.45pm
PUNTERS will be probably still be in shock when the Group B deciders kick off tonight.
The climax to Group A was extraordinary with the Czech Republic and Greece knocking out co-hosts Poland and much-fancied Russia.
I didn't see one tip for either on the site yesterday and Russia's defeat and ultimately exit was a huge surprise.
As someone said yesterday Group A finished upside down and mathematically Group B bottom dogs Holland could stiill qualify.
I promises to be another night of thrills but I can't see Germany not making it through. They need a point against Denmark to seal top spot and a quarter-final against Greece.
The way they've played so far suggests the Germans will win well but it must be at the back of their minds that they could draw and make sure Holland were eliminated.
The Dutch must beat Portugal by at least two goals and hope Denmark lose to qualify on head to heads involving all three sides.
Can you imagine how Germany would feel if the Dutch went through and the sides then met in the Final. So it's a tough one and either way I can't see the Germans busting a gut. A 1-0 would suit them fine unless Holland are winning easily.
Germany are new tournament favourites at 5-2 (various) following the Group A finish. Spain, who face a likely last-eight clash against England, are 12-5 at Ladbrokes and Paddy Power. France come in at 15-2 with bet365 and England are now fourth favourites at a biggest 12-1 with Paddy Power.
At the end of the day you've got to fear the Dutch won't even beat Portugal going by their form so far. Much-maligned Bert van Marwijk hasn't started either Klaas Jan Huntelaar or Rafael van der Vaart and so far has paid the price. I'd imagine both will start, at the expense of Ibrahim Afellay and Mark van Bommel, as the Dutch go for goals.
However, it could be too late for van Marwijk and with Portugal, who have lost one of their last 10 against Holland, needing to avoid defeat or match Denmark's score to book their slot I'm on them to qualify at 4-9 (various).
Cristiano Ronaldo is first-scorer favourite at 11-2 with Skybet but left his shooting boots in Madrid – no goals in 10 attempts.
Is he due one? Definitely but then we said the same about Russia's Alexandr Kerzakhov and he's left the tournament without a goal.
So for first scorer have a swatch at Helder Postiga who netted a belter in the win against Denmark. He is 9-1 and at that price is also worth a look at 3-1 to score at anytime.
Portugal are 13-8 at Skybet as are the Dutch with the draw 12-5. And draw no bet Portugal is worth a go at 1-1 with William Hill.
Robin van Persie got off the mark in the defeat to the Germans and is 6-1 to bag the opener. If the Dutch go for it there should be goals and consider both to score at 4-7 (various).
Over 2.5 pays 8-11 and I fancy a scoring draw, possibly 2-2.
But if it's going wrong for Holland expect more mayhem and as they become frustrated I could see the Dutch seeing a red. A sending-off in the game pays a best 5-2 at Ladbrokes.
Germany can only fail to qualify with a heavy defeat and I'd imagine Joachim Low will make some changes to rest players in the run-up to the quarter-finals.
There could be a start for prolific striker Miroslav Klose but check teams news before having a bet. I'll be looking at Klose at 11-2 with bet365 and Paddy Power for first scorer but only if Golden Boot favourite Mario Gomez doesn't start.
Gomez, who has netted three goals against Portugal, and Holland, is 5-1 at BetVictor and worth taking if he's on from kick-off.
Germany are no bigger than 4-6 with Coral and Stan James and it could be risky depending on their mindset and how Holland are faring.
Denmark are a best 5-1 (various) with the draw, being tipped by many because it suits both, 13-5 at Skybet.
This might be one to leave alone before kick-off then get involved in-running as the two games develop.
Portugal draw no bet
