EURO 2016 Free Bets

Spain’s final Euro 2012 warm up game ended with an expected win but the World and European champions failed to impress in the 1-0 victory in China on Sunday.
Manchester City’s David Silva rolled home the winner six minutes from time to give Spain its third win in a week but the performance wasn’t enough to make Titan Bet fall in line with the rest of the betting industry who make the defending champions favourite to retain the European title.
Titan Bet has Germany at 11/4 to win Euro 2012 with Spain second best at 3/1. The upcoming European sportsbook believes this summer’s tournament will see the end of Spain’s eight-year domination of international football and will refund losing outright bets on Euro 2012 if Spain win.
Vincent del Bosque was able to pick from Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao squad members who had been resting following the Copa del Rey final last week, selecting Xavi and Sergio Busquets in the starting line up. Striker Alvaro Negrado had another disappointing evening but wasn’t the only culprit in a lack lustre first half performance in which China produced the best opportunities.
Fernando Torres replaced Negrado at half time as del Bosque made four changes, introducing Victor Valdes, Iniesta and Jesus Navas to good effect at the interval. Iniesta provided the spark to a much improved second half performance as Spain began to create some openings, going close on four occasions before Silva finally made the break through. Iniesta was instrumental in most of Spain’s attacking play and conjured up a final piece of magic to open up the Chinese defence and leave Silva to stroke the ball into an unguarded net.
Spain begins the defence of its European title against Italy on Saturday. The holders beat Italy on penalties on its way to winning the 2008 tournament but has yet to beat its Latin rival over 90 minutes in any major tournament.
Punters betting against Spain to win Euro 2012 with Titan Bet will get their stakes refunded as a free bet if Spain win the tournament. Find out more at Titan Bet website.
