Euro 2016 Fantasy Football tips: Who the bookmakers fancy for top goalscorer


Goals win you games in football and more importantly goals win you points in our Euro 2016 fantasy football game.

Europe’s best strikers will all head to France hoping to lead their country to glory.

For every tournament, bookmakers have odds on who will be the top scorer and we have decided to take a look at who they are tipping to find the net the most during Euro 2016.


THOMAS MULLER (GERMANY) The master poacher has spent his entire career at Bayern Munich and has won most of the top prizes in world football. See PA story SOCCER Euro 2016 Players to watch. Photo credit should read John Walton/PA Wire.

The Germany and Bayern Munich forward has an excellent scoring record in tournament football and with the Germans being one of the bookies favourites for the tournament, having Muller in your side could be a great managerial move.

He will likely take the penalties for Germany and his intelligent link-up play will likely get him a few assists. PaddyPower has him at 8/1.

Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo. BUT, Portugal haven’t got the greatest side and they will not be expected to be taking part in the latter stages on the competition, but if Ronaldo brings his Real Madrid form to France, he could break European Championship goalscoring records.

He will be on all of Portugal’s free-kicks and penalties and his record from the spot is impressive.

It is expected that Kane will be Roy Hodgson’s first choice striker and with games against Russia, Slovakia and Wales in the group, Kane could get off to a flier.

It has been a mixed season for Olivier Giroud.

He has only scored 13 goals in the Premier League and suffered a spell of going eight games without a goal.

Tournament football might bring the best out of Giroud and if he is in good form he will score goals.

Belgium are a lot of peoples tip for the Euro 2016 and Lukaku will be in a lot of fantasy football teams.

Lukaku found the net 25 times for Everton last season and he will be expected to continue his goalscoring form during the Euros.

Belgium are expected to go far in the tournament and it is highly likely that Lukaku will be their main striker.

Anthony Martial is only 20-years-old and having the pressure at such a young age could be tough for him in a home European Championships.

But at the same time the fearlessness of youth could help.
