William Hill fears for Welsh success at Euro 2016

William Hill has confirmed that they are fearing for a fairy-tale Welsh success in the Euro 2016 final on Sunday. The bookmaker has made Germany and France joint 7/4 favourites to win the tournament, but they are hoping that big outsiders Wales fail to emulate the Leicester City story.

Wales are currently 8/1, but William Hill have racked up seven figure liabilities should they win the tournament. Chris Coleman’s side are in semi-final action against Portugal in Lyon on Wednesday, whilst joint favourites Germany and France face off in Marseille a day later.

Rupert Adams, Media Relations at William Hill, said: “Just about everyone who backed Leicester to win the Premier League seems to have lumped on Wales, and we could be about to see the second football fairy-tale of the year. That said it has been a tournament of surprises, and so far it has been one of our best ever tournaments.”

The first semi-final has been billed as a battle between Real Madrid ‘Galacticos’, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo. Bale is second in the top goalscorers list behind only Antoine Griezmann, and 6/1 to win the Golden Boot. Meanwhile, Ronaldo is priced at 7/1 despite only managing a brace against Hungary so far.
