EURO 2024 Gameday Odds (June 23) – Germany Kicks Off Third Round Of Groups With Undefeated Push

Ilkay Guendogan of Germany celebrates with teammates Antonio Ruediger of Germany and Leroy Sane of Germany after scoring his team's second goal during the UEFA EURO 2024 group stage match between Germany and Hungary at Stuttgart Arena on June 19, 2024 in Stuttgart, Germany.

The final pass through the group stage of EURO 2024 begins on June 23 with a pair of matches from Group A. Both games will kickoff simultaneously, to prevent any funny business, a situation where teams know a certain result will suit them both – it wasn’t always thus, but an infamous match at the 1982 World Cup in Spain led to the establishment of this protocol.

All four teams in the group are still alive heading into the final match day – Poland, with the latest results in Group D, became the first side to be officially eliminated – though each faces a unique situation.

The Swiss and the Germans are poised to advance to the next stage of EURO 2024. At the top of the group Germany has six points from two wins, while Switzerland has four from a win and a draw. A draw in Frankfurt will be enough for both sides to move on, though the Swiss could leapfrog into first seeding with a victory.

Germany has been one of the stories of the tournament. There was a lot of uncertainty around die Mannschaft heading into the home competition, but that dominant opening-day win over Scotland was followed up by a 2-0 win over Hungary in their second. It wasn’t quite the all-out offensive display of five days earlier, but it was a professional victory, with Jamal Musiala opening the scoring after 22 minutes and Ilkay Gundogan sealing the result in the second half.

Julian Nagelsmann may be tempted to rest some of his starters, having trotted out the same starting eleven in both, but with top billing at risk, it’s hard to imagine anything too drastic. With five days between this match and the beginning of the Round of 16, there will be plenty of time to recover on the other side.

Switzerland will feel relatively comfortable heading in, wary of only a heavy defeat. Scotland could catch them on points, but would need to make up some serious ground in terms of goal difference to move into second place and their record against their neighbours of late is pretty good with a pair of draws back in 2020.

The Nati needed a banger from Xherdan Shaqiri to overcome an early goal from the Scottish in their 1-1 draw but will feel they have done enough to ensure themselves a spot in the next round. They have a knack for navigating these situations, progressing out of the group stage in the last five major tournaments.

Game Bets To Consider

  • Germany are significant favourites in this one, but a Same Game Parlay of 1st Half Result – Germany, Over/Under 1st Half Corners – Over 4.5, and Switzerland Total Cards Over/Under – Over 1.5 at +680 catches the eye. Germany have scored first in both their matches, needing just 10 minutes against Scotland and 22 against Hungary, the Germans have averaged four corner kicks per half, while the Swiss have averaged 3.5, and with four cards through two matches, Switzerland could easily see a few yellows in this one.
  • Leroy Sane has appeared off the bench for the Germans in both matches yet has amassed six shots, three of which were on target – a tally that would please plenty of starters. Should Nagelsmann rotate his side, Sane is in line to factor from the off and should that trend continue, there could be some value there. Setting the line for Shots on Goal from Sane at +2 pays out at +310.

Scotland vs. Hungary, 3:00 p.m. ET

Where the other game in the group will feature two sides all but assured of moving on, this one in Stuttgart will be different. Both Scotland and Hungary need to win, they will be desperate to win.

The Scottish responded well to that disappointing opening day defeat to the Germans, taking an early lead through a deflected effort from Scott McTominay against Switzerland to put themselves in with a chance of advancing to the second phase of a major tournament for the first time in their history. With just a single point, Scotland is currently outside the top four places in the ranking of third-placed teams, and the dent in their goal difference from Germany is an obstacle. A win here would go some way towards improving the case for the Tartan Army.

It has been a disappointing EURO for the Hungarians, who will have had some hopes for a better showing. A 2-0 loss to Germany in their second match evidenced signs of progress after getting stung early by Switzerland in their opener, but the Magyars may have left it too late to find the level. A win and three points would give them a chance, but they, like the Scottish, have the obstacle of a negative goal-differential to overcome.

Game Bet To Consider: This one could go either way. Neither side is favoured, and after two tough games against the top sides in the group, how Scotland and Hungary will react to a do-or-die situation will be fascinating. Depending on which side one fancies there is an interesting same game parlay to suit the needs. For those who are backing Scotland: Game Result – Scotland, Over/Under Corners – Over 9.5, and Total Cards (Over/Under) 1st Half – Over 1.5 comes in at +900. This one will be fierce, back-against-the-wall type stuff, so a few early bookings are very possible. Scotland has averaged just 2.5 corners in Germany and Hungary just 4.5, but given the stakes expect more attacking moments for both in this one. For Hungary, a Hungary – Over/Under Total Goals – Over 1.5, Hungary Over/Under Corners – Over 4.5, and Total Cards Over/Under – Over 4.5 pays out at +650. Be wary, that is a lot of bookings, but desperation could see this one get feisty.

The tail effect of recent results lingers. It will be curious to see how France’s 0-0 draw with the Netherlands – the French have yet to score a goal at EURO 2024 – will ripple.
