European Championship 2012 Top Goalscorer - Balotelli Favourite for Golden Boot
To make good use of the Euro 2012 Free Bets that are available why not get involved in the exciting European Championship top goal scorer market. As you can see in the table below the ante-post odds are quite high as there are so many quality strikers heading to the tournament that are all capable of scoring goals.
There may be a number of lethal strikers going to Poland and Ukraine this summer but it is doubtful that any of those players will be able to beat the record set in Euro 1984 by Michel Platini of France, who managed to score an impressive 9 goals during the tournament. No player has since come close to that magic figure with the next best only managing 5 goals.
Balotelli with a brace against Germany in the Semi-Final has him on 3 goals and there could well be a tie with the likes of Ronaldo and Gomez amongst others also on 3 goals. Fernando Torres is in the mix, as are fellow Spaniards Cesc Fabregas and Xavi Alonso.
