Spain v Republic of Ireland Betting
Euro 2012 - Group C
Thursday June 14th - 7.45pm BST - ITV1
PGE Arena, Gdansk POL
It doesn't get any easier for Republic of Ireland on their return to a major finals as they come up against World and European champions Spain in their second match of Euro 2012. They will undoubtedly start as underdogs in the betting for the match and will be hoping to upset the odds against tournament favourites Spain on June 14th.
Spain had no problems in qualifying for Euro 2012 as they won every game of their qualifying campaign and the defending European Championship winners are firm favourites in the betting to win the tournament outright. In stark contrast, Republic of Ireland needed the play-offs to reach Euro 2012 and are one of the outsiders for the Championships on their first appearance at a major finals since 2002.
