Spain are through to the semi-final of Euro 2012 thanks to a 2-0 victory over France in Donetsk...
"Spain are into 2.6413/8 to win Euro 2012, just ahead of Germany at 3.02/1 and their semi-final opponents Portugal at 7.413/2."
It was arguably the dullest game of the tournament so far but Spain will care little in that regard as the defending European and world champions eased their way into the semi-final of Euro 2012.
Spain boss Vicente del Bosque surprisingly reverted to the 'no recognised striker' formation that started against Italy and it was clear from the outset that his side were happy to retain possession and bide their time in the game.
And the Spanish didn't have to wait too long for the breakthrough in Donetsk when on 19 minutes Jordi Alba got free down the left, beat his full-back, and stood up a teasing cross to the far post for the on-rushing Xabi Alonso to head into the far corner.
Alonso - making his 100th appearance for his country - was backed at 20.019/1 in the First Goalscorer market whilst the 1-0 Half Time Score was backed at just 4.57/2.
The second half started, and stayed for large parts, in lacklustre fashion with France seemingly unwilling to gamble and force Spain onto the back foot. A few Laurent Blanc substitutions made little difference to the game with Del Bosque's men cruising to victory thanks to a late Alonso penalty after Pedro was felled in the box.
The former Liverpool man was matched at 85.084/1 to score two goals or more whilst the 2-0 Correct Score was matched at 12.011/1.
Spain are into 2.6413/8 to win Euro 2012, just ahead of Germany at 3.02/1 and their semi-final opponents Portugal at 7.413/2. England (12.011/1) and Italy (13.012/1) meet each other tomorrow night in the remaining quarter-final encounter.
