Will Spain win Euro 2012?

Posted on | March 15, 2012 | No Comments

There are only a few months until the start of the  European Championship. The tournament will be hosted by Poland and Ukraine.

As it was expected Spain are the major favorites to win the Championship according to Euro 2012 betting. Spain are playing the best football and the results prove this. Barcelona are the best club in the World and Spain are the best national in the World at the moment. They are playing a possession game, a nice to watch game. As may coaches declared they are a team hard to beat but easy to prepare because everybody knows what to expect from them.

The only manager who won a trophy, when played against Barcelona or Spain, is Jose Mourinho who won the Champions League with Inter in 2010 and the Spain Cup with Real Madrid.

There are also some bad news if we can call them this way. David Villa, the top goalscorer from qualifications is injured with a fractured tibia and his presence at the final tournament is in doubt. Even if he will made the squad for the final tournament he may not be in the best shape and this could cost Spain. Fernando Torres is going trough a bad period as well.

But Spain are a team with a lot of world-class players and I’m sure they will cope with all the problems. What’s also nice to see is that Spain are mixing experienced players with young talents. There are a lot of players coming from behind and this is a must for continuity.

The European champions were assigned to group C along with Italy, Republic of Ireland and Croatia. Probably the first game against Italy will establish the winner of the group.

Spain played against Italy also at Euro 2008 in the quarter-finals. The game ended 0-0 and after penalties Spain were the team who advanced to the semi-finals.  The whole Euro 2012 program is already available.

Germany and Netherlands are among the favorites as well. Both teams are in Group B along with Portugal and Denmark.
