With the final group games in Groups E and F being played last night, we now know the 16 teams that have qualified for the Round of 16 in the European soccer championships in full and furthermore, we now know who will be playing each other in this first round of knockout games.

The results last night confirmed that Sweden and Spain from Group E along with France and Germany from Group F would qualify in 1st and 2nd place respectively, while the results also meant that Portugal in Group F and Ukraine from Group C would take the final two best third place teams spots.

That was bad news for Slovakia and Finland who were the two third-placed teams to miss out on reaching the knockout phase as they join Turkey, Russia, North Macedonia, Scotland, Poland and Hungary in being eliminated from the tournament.

Euros Round of 16 Fixtures & Tips

Saturday 26th June

  • Wales v Denmark (5pm, Amsterdam)

Both these teams have done very well to reach this stage. Wales were not fancied much in Group A but finished second to Italy to come through, while Denmark snatched a big win over Russia in their final game to finish second in Group B.

The Danes have beaten the Welsh in the last two encounters between the teams, which took place in 2018. However, without their main creative force in Christian Eriksen, I think the Welsh will fancy their chances of gaining a degree of revenge here.

Wales have some superb attacking players and as we saw at the last European Championships, they are capable of beating anybody on their day. I think this game will require extra time and maybe even penalties to get the winner but I have a sneaking feeling it could be Wales going through.

Correct Score (90 Mins) – Wales 1-1 Denmark – 6/1

  • Italy v Austria (8pm, London)

Italy were extremely impressive in their group, winning all three games and they have now gone 30 games unbeaten and not conceded a single goal in their last ten games, winning them all. Tge task facing Austria therefore looks to be a huge one.

Roberto Mancini’s team play decidedly un-Italian football, pressing high and playing at a very high tempo, but it has worked well over the last few games and I have no reason to think that they will do anything other than continue that excellent form at Wembley on Saturday.

Austria do have some talented individuals, but even so, I cannot see them having anywhere near enough firepower or the defensive ability to keep this Italian team out and as such, I think this could be a torrid night for the Austrians and an easy win for Italy.

Correct Score (90 mins) – Italy 3-0 Austria – 10/1

Sunday 27th June

  • Netherlands v Czech Republic (5pm, Budapest)

The Dutch had the advantage of playing all their group games in Amsterdam and they took full advantage of that by winning all three games comfortably. They now face a Czech Republic side who finished third in Group D behind England and Croatia.

The Czech’s have a good record against the Dutch, winning five and drawing three of eleven games between the two teams over the years. They have also won both the last two encounters between the teams so the Dutch will be more than wary of the threat posed by their opponents today.

I think the game being in Budapest is also an advantage for the Czech’s but even so, I think the Dutch side have just enough quality in attack and midfield in order to get the job done here.

Correct Score (90 Mins) – Netherlands 2-1 Czech Republic (8/1)

  • Belgium v Portugal (8pm, Seville)

What a game this could prove to be between the top ranked team in world football and the current European Championship holders. Belgium came through their group stage with maximum points even though they had a number of key players not fully fit, an ominous sign for a Portugal side who finished third in Group F.

After winning their opening game, Portugal then lost to Germany and battled to a draw against France but they will know that this game requires them to be as clinical as they were in their opener against Hungary, especially with Belgium looking so dangerous in the games that they have played so far.

Belgium looked excellent even with Hazard and De Bruyne only partly fit, as they get stronger and fitter, I think their chances of going deep in this tournament improve and I think they will get the better of the Portuguese in this game.

Correct Score (90 Mins) – Belgium 3-1 Portugal (20/1)

Monday 28th June

  • Croatia v Spain (5pm, Copenhagen )

This is one of the trickier games to predict in the Round of 16 I feel as both teams are in a period of transition. There’s no doubt Croatia are not as strong as they were a few years ago, while the same can be said of Spain, who only clinched qualification in their third game despite playing all three matches in the Group Stage in Seville.

That said, I think the Spanish team has more energy and is further along the process of reinventing itself than Croatia is. There is still a huge reliance on the ‘old guard’ for Croatia and I think the younger, faster Spanish team will give them huge problems.

Croatia tend to dominate by keeping the ball but Spain won’t let them do that here and as such, I think that means Spain, even with their awful record at penalties, will land the win in normal time.

Correct Score (90 mins) Spain 2-1 Croatia (17/2)

  • France v Switzerland (8pm, Bucharest)

France topped Group F, but it should be noted that they have not won a game since that tight opening win against Germany. They face a Switzerland side who finished third in Group A behind Italy and Wales but who have typically been very tough to beat over the years.

After scoring twice in the 2-2 draw with Portugal Karim Benzema will be thrilled to score his first French goals in seven years but with Mbappe yet to find the net and Griezmann having just one goal, that much-vaunted French attack isn’t firing on all cylinders yet.

The Swiss rely a lot on Xherdan Shaqiri and he has delivered already in this tournament with two goals against Turkey, but I think France are a very different prospect and I would be surprised if the Swiss can get anything from this game at all. For me, this should be a comfortable France win.

Correct Score (90 Mins) – France 2-0 Switzerland (6/1)

Tuesday 29th June

  • England v Germany (5pm, London)

A chance for revenge against one of their most fierce rivals, or yet another defeat at the hands of an old enemy? Tuesday night will likely define England’s championships under Gareth Southgate and for England fans there are probably no tougher opponents to face than Germany.

The Germans were superb in beating Portugal but struggled against France and Hungary, only clinching qualification thanks to a late equaliser in that final game. England topped Group D, but in truth their lack of firepower, with just two goals in three games, is a real cause for concern.

It is going to be interesting to see how the Germans approach this, will they try to dominate possession, or let England have the ball and hit on the counter? This should be an absolutely classic game and I think we may need extra time and even the dreaded penalties to decide the winner.

Correct Score (90 Mins – England 1-1 Germany (11/2)

  • Sweden v Ukraine (8pm, Glasgow)

The final game of the Round of 16 should be an interesting one. Ukraine finished 3rd in Group C despite playing some decent football, especially against the Dutch but defensively they looked somewhat fragile.

Sweden were unbeaten and topped Group E with two wins and a draw and unlike the Ukraine, their defence has generally been excellent, apart from Robert Lewandowski’s two goals against them in the 3-2 win over Poland.

This is another tight game but I think that the Swedes just have the edge in terms of their team spirit and their ability to defend. I can see the Swedes stealing a tight one here.

Correct Score (90 Mins) – Sweden 1-0 Ukraine (13/2)
