History of EURO - 2016 Quarter Finals

In EURO 2016 we saw several outsiders making it all the way to the quarter-finals. Poland, Wales and Iceland all went up against big nations that were seen as favourites to win the whole tournament. These were the quarter-final results in 2016:

  • Poland - Portugal 1-1 (3-5 Penalties)
  • Wales - Belgium 3-1
  • Germany - Italy 1-1 (6-5 Penalties)
  • France - Iceland 5-2

Poland made life tough for Portugal and the match went all the way to penalty kicks. Small margins decided the match, and Portugal marched on to win all of EURO 2016 as we now know. The biggest surprise of EURO 2016, and one of the big ones in recent memory, is the triumph of Wales making it to the semifinal through a victory over Belgium, who were seen as one of a few main contenders to lift the EURO trophy. Germany won a tough battle against Italy, and France demolished the crowd favorite, Iceland, to secure the other semifinal spots in 2016.

EURO 2016 Quarter-Final Highlight

The most memorable moment of the EURO quarterfinals, and maybe even the whole tournament, was when Wales managed to defeat the giant Belgium. What we witnessed was a real David vs Goliath story play at Stade Pierre-Mauroy on the 16th of July 2016. It took only 13 minutes before Belgium scored the first goal of the match, and most experts and fans expected the favorites to reach an easy semifinal.

Wales instead managed to shock everyone, and not least the Belgian players. First through an equalizer in the 30th minute through Ashley Williams, and when 2-1 fell in the 55th by Hal Robson-Kanu the Belgian superstars looked stunned. Frozen by the result on the scoreboard, Belgium did not manage to come back, and instead, Wales punctured the match through 3-1 scored by Sam Vokes. The incredible upset was as such complete, and Wales went on to face Portugal in the semifinal.

Interesting betting statistics in EURO Quarter Finals

European Championships and the World Cup always manages to produce thrilling and memorable moments in the later stages, and the quarter-finals are certainly part of that. Over the years we have seen several big surprises and amazing matches. It’s time for us to have a look at some interesting stats and facts from EURO quarters that can help us make better betting decisions. Let’s begin with looking at goal averages and Over/Under 2.5 goals scored in the three latest EURO tournaments played.

Goal Average at EURO 2008 Quarter-Finals: 1.75

Goal Average at EURO 2012 Quarter-Finals: 2.25

Goal Average at EURO 2016 Quarter-Finals: 3.75

Over/Under 2.5 Goals at EURO 2008 Quarter-Finals: 1 Over, 3 Under

Over/Under 2.5 Goals at EURO 2012 Quarter-Finals: 1 Over, 3 Under

Over/Under 2.5 Goals at EURO 2016 Quarter-Finals: 2 Over, 2 Under

The trend is clear - most matches go under the 2.5 goal line when we reach the quarter-finals. This is most commonly seen in the bookmakers’ odds, as teams will play safer and prioritize their own end more as we reach these crucial stages. The 2016 EURO numbers get boosted a lot due to France having a crushing 5-2 win against Iceland, and in general, we can without a doubt see that low scoring is the name of the game in EURO quarter-finals.

Do the favorites always win in EURO quarter-finals?

We already gave one clear example of an underdog making it through the quarter-final, with Wales beating Belgium in EURO 2016. Let’s have a look at the last three tournaments to get a bigger picture though.

EURO 2008

  • Winners: Germany, Turkey, Russia, Spain
  • Losers: Portugal, Croatia, Netherlands, Italy

In 2008 we saw two clear surprises when Turkey beat Croatia and Russia eliminated the Netherlands. The two other matches were arguably close to begin with. Going with a bet on the underdogs this year would have been a profitable selection, as the odds for Turkey and Russia were in the range of 3-5 times the money or so.

EURO 2012

  • Winners: Portugal, Spain, Germany, Italy
  • Losers: Czech Republic, France, Greece, England

2012 was quite different from the previous iteration, as all favourites did their job and won their quarter-finals. Italy - England and Spain - France were quite close matches, to begin with, but the other two matches had a clear favourite who won their match.

EURO 2016

  • Winners: Portugal, Wales,Germany, France
  • Losers: Poland, Belgium, Italy, Iceland

Again, Wales was the big surprise in EURO 2016, but other than that the results were in line with what was expected. It’s hard to conclude with this sample of matches of course, but we can see a clear picture of the favourites holding up quite well, but with the occasional massive surprise. Both 2008 and 2016 had high odds underdogs pulling through, and it’s quite likely we will see at least one surprise team replicate that in EURO 2020 - who could that be though? That’s the million-dollar question.
