Who will be the Top Goalscorer at Euro 2012?

The problem with most of the favourites in the top goalscorer market is that they all play in Group B. Group B is the toughest group at Euro 2012 and all of the teams play very strong defence. Mario Gomez (Germany) is the favourite to win the honours, but during group stage the Germans have tough games against Netherlands, Portugal and Denmark.

Gomez is a natural goalscorer and will score for Germany at Euro 2012, but I don’t think he scores the most in the tourney. This year Gomez netted 12 goals in the Champions League and another 26 goals in the German Bundesliga. Van Persie is paying 10/1 and he’s going to score for the Netherlands, but his production may be limited due to Huntelaar.

During qualifying for Euro 2012 Huntelaar led Holland with 12 goals and he’s going to cut into Van Persie’s goals. Huntelaar is one of the favourites to win the top goalscorer honours as well. The problem with the two Dutch strikers are that they’ll most likely share goals and they also play in Group B against very tough defensive teams during group stage.

Ronaldo needs to have a huge performance this month at Euro 2012 if he wants to help Portugal play in the QF’s. Ronaldo was able to score 46 goals in La Liga (2nd Best) and he also scored 10 times during the Champions League in Europe. Ronaldo plays in Group B though and scoring goals will be limited against the likes of Germany and Netherlands.

Two picks that I want you to consider are Karim Benzema and Robert Lewandowski. Benzema plays on France and he should be able to score during the group stage against some of the weaker defensive teams in Group D. Lewandowski is Polish and he’s the main threat on Poland to score. Lewandowski netted 22 goals this season and will look to add to that tally at Euro 2012. Avoid betting on Wayne Rooney at Euro 2012 as well due to his 2-game suspension that he needs to serve.
