Celje is the town for Group C teams. Let’s see the odds of my bookmaker for the team winning group.

Spain @ 1.20 arrives in Slovenia with a winning strike in the friendly games. It seems the Spanish team is the one who can win Group C and the title. Anyway, you know I prefer Lithuania as European Champions this year.

Slovienia @ 4.50 playes at home and this could help the team. Expecially if the start the championship with a win.

Croatia @ 9.50  is not so dangerous as my bookmaker thinks. I am not sure they can get a place in the 2nd round.

Poland @ 41.00 is not so bad as my bookmaker thinks.

Czech Republic @ 23.00 fights to avoid the 6th position.

Georgia @ 23.00 has the same target of Czech Republic.

So, theese are my verdicts: Spain wins the group, with Slovenia and Poland securing the other two places for the 2nd round. Croatia, Czech Republic and Georgia will see 2nd round games on TV.
