Betting on topscorer at a major tournament requires special analysis and is possibly one of the biggest bets you can take. Top players rarely transfer their club form to their respective national teams so we ended up having surprising topscorers at some of the European championships in the past. At the 2012 European championship, we had five topscorers of the tournament, with each of them scoring four goals. At the end Spain’s Fernando Torres took home the award with him, with El Nino spending the least amount of time on the pitch to score those goals.
At the upcoming European championship it seems that everything comes down to three players – Antoine Griezmann, Thomas Müller and Cristiano Ronaldo. 888sport website has decided to place an unique offer for the customer on this particular bet, allowing you to be on an amazing odds of 31/1 for either of those three players. The original odds was a solid 8/1 for Müller, 10/1 for Ronaldo and 9/1 for Griezmann.
Antoine Griezmann is set to be the main target man for France at the upcoming tournament, following the controversial absence from his Madrid rival Karim Benzema. Griezmann introduced himself back in 2014 World cup and has since constantly improved and he is expected to peak in the Euros. Griezmann has been clinical for Atletico Madrid this season, scoring 22 goals and appearing in every single game in the league. In the meantime he was not even remotely effective for the national team, netting just one goal in the preparation tournament and two since October 2015. Griezmann is now however his country’s key hope of reaching the finals of the tournament and his goals can play a pivotal role for this.
Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo also rates pretty high for being the golden shoe winner for EURO 2016. The speculation that he might (finally) claim the topscorer position rose after Ronaldo’s Portugal was drawn in a relatively “easy” group with Iceland, Hungary and Austria. Considering the fact that he is the main target man in Portugal and is practically the only Portuguese player that has game-solving skills, gives him huge advantage ahead of other players, notably Müller and Griezmann. Ronaldo was instrumental in Portugal’s qualification, scoring five goals in the process and he also contributed in the preparation tournament, making him a likely favorite for the topscorer spot.
Thomas Müller is easily one of the most influential players in recent German national team history, being one of the best players in their title-winning 2014 campaign in Brazil but also becoming the top scorer and one of the best players at the 2010 World cup. Müller is arguably the most versatile player in the German squad, enabling him to play as an attacking midfielder, a striker or a false nine. While his World cup tally looks very impressive (ten goals) he is yet to score a goal at the European championship. He is in fine form so far in the calendar year, scoring 20 goals in the league campaign and contributing with nine goals throughout the 2016 qualification process.
888sport’s opportunity is the one you cannot afford to miss and you might want to check the offer. A topscorer bet is also entertaining and often lasts throughout the whole tournament, leaving all cards open until the final whistle.
