Betting: Portugal 8/1 to beat Poland

NetBet are offering all new online customers the chance to back Fernando Santos' men at a huge price to progress to the semi-finals of Euro 2016 with victory in Marseille

The quarter-finals of Euro 2016 get under way on Thursday as Portugal face Poland, and while Fernando Santos' side are the favourites to win the game at around 13/10 (2.30), NetBet are offering all new customers the chance to back them at a huge quote of 8/1 (9.0).

This offer is open to anyone opening an account through the links provided. To take advantage of this enhanced price, simply back Portugal to win at the usual price shown on site and if they do win in normal time then the returns will be topped up to the enhanced value of 8/1 (9.0).

If Santos' side don't win the game in 90 minutes, anyone who took up the offer will get a free bet credited to their new account.

In order to seal victory, Portugal will need to find a way past a Poland defence that has been pretty solid throughout the tournament, although Cristiano Ronaldo will be confident of doing so if he can replicate his performance against Hungary in Marseille.

Portugal's defeat of Croatia in the round of 16 should prove a timely fillip for a team who will now have designs on securing the continental crown in France. Those ambitions are made even more realistic given that they find themselves in the softer side of the draw, with the likes of Germany, Italy and the hosts set to be avoided until the final.

Poland have outperformed expectations themselves, but the lack of goals from star man Robert Lewandowski could well prove pivotal as Nawalka's men face the better sides in the competition.

This looks a fascinating tie and, while backing Portugal at around 13/10 (2.30) may not be the most appealing prospect to punters, the chance to take up quotes of 8/1 (9.0) should prove a much more attractive option for anyone yet to sign up with NetBet.
