Euro 2020 Total Matches To Go To Extra Time

Extra Time Matches Under/Over

At Euro 2016, five matches went to extra time, including the final between France and Portugal where Eder stunned the host nation with a thunderbolt in the 109th minute of the game to crown his side as the European Champions.

However, Euro 2016’s tally was a relatively high amount due to the likes of Portugal themselves only managing to win one match in the whole tournament in normal time, having beaten Croatia via extra time in the round of 16, as well as out nerving Poland in a penalty shootout in the quarter-finals, in what was Poland’s second penalty shootout of the tournament, having dumped out Switzerland 5-4 in the previous round, with Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka being the only man to fail from the spot.

When compared to Euro 2012, there were just two matches that went to extra time, which were both in 0-0 stalemates, firstly between England and eventual finalists Italy in the quarter-finals, as well as in a feisty match in the semi-finals where Spain beat Portugal 4-2 on penalties as Bruno Alves’ missed spot-kick allowed Cesc Fabregas the opportunity to knock Portugal out, of which he duly obliged, leaving Cristiano Ronaldo red-faced, as he had chosen himself to be his side’s fifth taker of the shootout.

What must be noted though, is that the Euros have expanded since Euro 2012, as there is now a round of 16, following a rule change which allows the four best third-placed teams to have a chance to get into the knockout stages, of which Portugal profited from last time despite finishing third in Group F, having drawn all three of their group stage matches to Austria, Iceland and Hungary.

The odds for under 4.5 matches to go to extra time are 8/13, compared to the priced of 6/5 for more than 4.5 games to go to extra time.

Extra Time Matches Exact

When considering the fact that there are 15 knockout matches after the group stages in the Euros, the fact that a third of these went to extra time last time out is quite impressive, although as stated above, three of these matches involved Portugal, whilst two involved Poland, including their penalty shootout loss to the eventual winners, with Germany’s penalty shootout victory against Italy being the other match to go past normal time.

Four matches to go to extra time is the most likely outcome according to the bookies’, hence why it is priced at 3/1 to happen, as it would be a surprise to see a single team like Portugal rack up three extra time appearances again.

0 matches – 50/1
