After a dramatic final set of group games in the European Championship, we now know all of the 16 teams that have qualified for the knockout phase Round of 16 ties, which start on Saturday 26th June. At one point, England could have been playing any of the four teams in Group F, but in the end, results determined it would be Germany that Gareth Southgate’s team would face.

Along with the game on Sunday which sees Belgium face Portugal, these are the two standout fixtures in the Round of 16 and will see one of the bigger nations in the tournament going home much earlier than they would have hoped.

Other fixtures confirmed last night see the Netherlands taking on the Czech Republic on Sunday, Croatia facing Spain on Monday along with France taking on Switzerland and after the England v Germany clash on Tuesday, Sweden will take on Ukraine in Glasgow to finish off the Round of 16 ties.

Following those games there is another two-day break with no games before the Quarterfinals are completed on Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd July. The semifinals take place on Tuesday 6th and Wednesday 7th July and the final on Sunday 11th July.

Below we have previewed all eight of the Round of 16 fixtures and we have given you our tips for what we think the result will be at the end of 90 minutes and also who will eventually qualify from the tie.

Euros Round of 16 Fixtures & Tips

Saturday 26th June

  • Wales v Denmark (5pm, Amsterdam)

Two teams that have battled their way through their group to fully earn a spot in the Knockout Phase. Wales picked up one more point than Denmark in the group phase, while the Danes left it to their last game against Russia before cementing their place in the Knockout Phase.

The Danes will still be without Christian Eriksen of course for this game, but in his absence Mikkel Damsgaard has proven to be a useful replacement. The Danes also have the edge in this fixture, winning six of the ten games between the teams, losing four and they did beat Wales home and away during the 2018 Nations League.

However, Wales do have a very attacking and talented trio of attackers in Bale, Ramsey and James and with Kieffer Moore a handful up front, I think this is a game that could well go down to the wire and may require extra time and penalties to decide the winner.

  • Full Time Result – Draw – 9/4
  • To Qualify – Wales (7/4) though it may take extra time or penalties to decide the winner.
  • Italy v Austria (8pm, London)

No team has impressed me as much in the tournament so far as Italy have. They are unbeaten in 30 games, and in their last ten, they have won all of them and not conceded a single goal. After three wins from three in the group stage, I think this Italy team is primed to go deep in this tournament.

That spells bad news for Austria fans who I think will not be looking forward to this game. The Austrian’s team is solid, if unspectacular and their best chance of success is geared towards keeping a clean sheet, something that I can’t see them doing against Italy at Wembley.

Truth be told, I think Italy will win this game very easily and progress into the quarterfinals without too much trouble at all.

  • Full Time Result – Italy to win (9/20)
  • To Qualify – Italy (2/9)

Sunday 27th June

  • Netherlands v Czech Republic (5pm, Budapest)

The Netherlands made light work of their progress from Group C, winning all three of their games, while the Czech’s took four points to eventually finish third in Group D. However, the Dutch have not got the best of records against the Czech’s playing them 11 times in total, winning just three of those, with three draws and five wins for the Czechs.

That includes two wins for them in the last two games they faced them back in 2014 and 2015, however it is fair to say that since then, this Dutch team has improved considerably, while the Czech team is probably a little less effective as it was back then, given their top players are now 5 or 6 years older.

This will be a tight game and I can see the Czech’s giving the Dutch a real test here, but I still feel the Netherlands will just have too much for them and will edge this one.

  • Full Time Result – Netherlands to win – 4/6
  • To Qualify – Netherlands – 1/3
  • Belgium v Portugal (8pm, Seville)

This should be a fantastic clash between the current holders of the trophy and the team ranked asEuro Predictor the best in the world by FIFA, Portugal finished third in Group F behind France and Germany to earn this shot at a Belgium side that won 100% of their games in Group B and qualified comfortably.

What was very impressive was that Belgium landed those wins with some key players not fully fit. However, the likes of Hazard and De Bruyne are now getting back to full fitness and that does cause plenty of concern for Portuguese fans and backers here.

Portugal have not lost to Belgium since 1989, winning three and drawing two of the five games since. The game in Seville will be more suited to Portugal too and while they will put up a stern fight here, I still feel that Belgium will do enough to go through.

  • Full Time Result – Belgium to win – 7/5
  • To Qualify – Belgium – 7/10

Monday 28th June

  • Croatia v Spain (5pm, Copenhagen )

Croatia finished second in Group D after beating Scotland 3-1 in their final game, while Spain finished second in Group E after thumping Slovakia 5-0 in their last game, after two somewhat disappointing draws against Sweden and Poland.

For me, both these teams are in a period of transition and in truth, it is a hard game to pick. I wasn’t unduly impressed with Spain in their opening two games, but they took advantage of some poor Slovakian defending to earn that confidence boosting big win.

Croatia will find Spain a much more difficult prospect than Scotland even in Copenhagen and although this will be close, I think the Spanish may just nick the win here.

  • Full Time Result – Spain to win – 4/6
  • To Qualify – Spain – 3/10
  • France v Switzerland (8pm, Bucharest)

Switzerland have had a habit of pulling off big results against some big teams in recent major tournaments but I don’t hold out much hope of them doing so here, even against a France side that as not quite clicked into gear in this tournament as yet.

That said, the two goals Karim Benzema scored against Portugal will give him a timely boost for this game and of course, Griezmann and Mbappe are world class talents, capable of scoring multiple goals against any team in the world.

The Swiss will try to keep things tight and perhaps sneak a goal on the counter attack and while they are capable of that, I don’t see them being able to keep France out and as such, I think the French move on from this game into the quarterfinals.

  • Full Time Result – France to win – (4/7)
  • To Qualify – France – (2/9)

Tuesday 29th June

  • England v Germany (5pm, London)

If there is one team that has caused England more misery in major tournaments than any other, it is Germany. Despite England playing at home, Germany won’t be fazed at all about going to Wembley to take on the Three Lions and there is an argument that it will suit their counter-attacking style more.

It’s fair to say that neither team has hit the heights of top performance in this tournament and the team that does in this game will likely end up as the winner. History and experience suggests that it will more likely be Germany that do that, than England.

Having said that, Gareth Southgate’s team have exorcised a few demons in the past few years and in the last ten matches between the two, England have won four to Germany’s five with the last game in Nov 2017, finishing as the draw. I think a similar result is likely on Tuesday, with extra time or even penalties needed to decide the winner.

  • Full Time Result – Draw – 21/10
  • To Qualify – Germany – 19/20
  • Sweden v Ukraine (8pm, Glasgow)

Sweden surprised many to top Group E ahead of Spain but they did so deservedly amassing seven points an debating Slovakia and Poland along the way. Ukraine only managed three points in Group C, that coming from a win over North Macedonia, and despite looking bright in attack, they do look suspect defensively.

In truth, the Swedes are kind of the opposite of that with their defensive strength being the bedrock of the team. For me, in this kind of game, it is that which is often the deciding factor when it comes to who will go through.

As such, I am backing Sweden to land a narrow victory here to progress.

  • Full Time Result – Sweden to win – 13/10
  • To Qualify – Sweden – 7/10
