Cristiano Ronaldo to score at any time against Denmark – 6/5

Portugal were pitted against Denmark in their Euro 2012 qualifying group, and former Manchester United star Ronaldo scored in both Copenhagen and Porto against the Danes. The 27-year-old has 32 goals in 91 appearances for his national side, and he netted a staggering 46 La Liga goals last season. So, the Tipster’s opening bet for this edition is for Ronaldo to score at any time against Denmark at 6/5.

Portugal to beat Denmark – 5/6

Denmark produced the first big upset of Euro 2012 by beating a fancied Netherlands side in their opening Group B game last Saturday. However, Portugal must beat Morten Olsen’s side to keep their hopes of reaching the last eight alive, and our resident betting expert is backing Portugal to claim three points at 5/6.

Gómez to score at any time against Netherlands – 7/5

Gómez headed Germany’s winner against Portugal, putting to bed any memories of his lacklustre display in Bayern Munich’s Champions League final defeat by Chelsea. The 26-year-old scored 26 goals in 33 Bundesliga appearances last season, and will be Germany’s danger-man against the Dutch. Gómez to make it two goals in two games at Euro 2012 is definitely worth a punt at 7/5.

Over 2.5 goals in Germany v Netherlands – 19/20

Three of the Netherlands’ last five games have resulted in over 2.5 goals, while four of Germany’s last four ties have seen at least three goals. These two sides were the top scorers in qualifying, with the Dutch scoring 37 goals, and the Germans netting 34 times. So it’s obvious that the Tipster is backing over 2.5 goals here at 19/20.

The long shot: Gómez to score first and Germany to win – 7/1

This will be the 39th meeting between the two sides, with Germany leading the head-to-head record with 14 wins. Germany also have the edge in recent meetings – they are unbeaten in three games against Holland. Gómez’s winner against Portugal took his international tally to 23 goals in 53 appearances, and the Tipster’s ambitious long shot for this edition is for Gómez to score first and Germany to win at brilliant odds of 7/1.
