Published on July 3rd, 2016 5:11 pm EST

The semi-finals of the Euro 2016 are now set, as Portugal will take on Wales, while Germany will battle France.

The final match-up was set earlier today after France destroyed Iceland 5-2, thereby ending Iceland's unlikely run in the tournament. This sets up a marquee match against Germany in the semi-finals.

According to the bookmakers, the Germany vs France match is very tough to call, as evidenced by these odds:

Germany, 9/5
Draw, 21/10
France, 7/4

The odds to qualify for the finals see France with the very slight edge:

To Qualify

Germany, 10/11
France, 4/5

In a neutral setting, Germany would likely be the favourites to win, though France will be playing in front of their home fans. In addition, Germany had to struggle to beat Italy in the quarter-finals, while France eased to a win against Iceland.


Here are the outright odds for the rest of the Euro 2016 tournament:

Germany, 7/4
France, 7/4
Portugal, 100/30
Wales, 8/1

The Sports King is happily receiving news about the upcoming EURO 2016 semi-final match between Germany and France

For many, Germany vs France is the true final of the tournament, though both Wales and Portugal will give the winner of Germany vs France all that they can handle.
