Euro 2016 Dark Horses

Posted by Jay Sanin on 6/13/2016 3:13:25 AM

Euro 2016 is underway and with it comes some chances to find real value on the field. The key is to avoid the typical powerhouse teams such as Germany and France, and dig a little deeper to find the dark horses of the tournament. These three teams more than fit the bill, and have the potential to give the traditional powers fits with the potential to make deep runs in the tough knockout stages.

1. Wales

Wales wasn't thought very highly of heading into the tournament thanks to a rather low FIFA rating, but they have looked strong in qualifying and have even earned a win in their first match of Euro 2016, defying the odds with a late winner against Slovakia. Gareth Bale is their be all and end all player, but he is skilled enough to make things work for the Welsh.

2. Poland

Thought of as another one man show, Poland have the ability to get out of their group and give themselves a chance to make a real impression in this tournament. If they are to do so, they'll need to do it on the back of Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski, who is right up there with Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo as the most dangerous attacker this tournament will see in 2016.

3. Croatia

Drawn into a brutal group in the 2014 World Cup, Croatia get back into a major tournament with their sights set on more than a group stage exit here in Euro 2016. With a number of experienced attacking threats like Luka Modric at their disposal, Croatia won't be an easy out in this competition, even against Europe's elite national teams.

As far as value is concerned, the loaded Belgian team could be worth taking a look at to win the tournament, as they are just as talented as the big nations, but without the history that skews their price to win it all.
