Portugal Euro 2012 odds
Portugal have a decent record at recent major tournaments, reaching the final of Euro 2004, semi-finals of World Cup 2006, the last eight at Euro 2008 and the knock-out stages of World Cup 2010, where they narrowly lost to their rivals and eventual winners Spain.
Portugal are through to the semi-finals after beating Czech Republic 1-0. They will play old rivals Spain for a place in the Final.
Portugal were drawn in Euro 2012 Group B with Netherlands, Germany and Denmark. They got off to a losing start after they were defeated 1-0 by Germany but responded with a 3-2 victory against Denmark. They then went on to beat Holland 2-1 and book their place in the quarter-finals.
They do have a very good record in the European Championships and the odds for Portugal to win the 2012 European Championships are now just 11/2 with Paddy Power.
