Euro 2012 Quarterfinals: Predicting the Results of Each Game

The group stage is concluded and the absence of some larger nations such as Netherlands and Russia make for an interesting quarter-final stage.

At this point, as before the start of the tournament, the teams most likely to capture the Henri Delaunay trophy are Spain and Germany.

This does not mean it's a formality, but with both nations on opposite sides of the draw, a Spain vs. Germany final is looking likely.

There are still six other nations in contention who will be looking to spring an upset and oblige the bookmakers' desire for an early exit of a heavily backed favourite.

The question at this stage, is what teams are capable of springing a surprise?

Czech Republic looked dead and buried after their opening game loss to Russia but bounced back well.

Greece may have peaked in the groups by qualifying, though 2004's European Championship win means they cannot be discounted.

Over the next four slides, we look to predict the results of all four games and attempt to formulate the semi-final line-ups.
