The Euro 2016 Of Crime Drama continues today with a return to Group B, to catch up with Scotland’s Shetland and Germany’s Cenk Batu. Shetland kicked off its campaign with an impressive victory over Hinterland in its opening game. Now it’s back in the spotlight for the Scottish representative, with a match-up it should, on paper, win relatively easily.
Yesterday’s game saw another good one in the group of death, Group A. The Fall, smarting from its opening day defeat to Spiral, scored its first points of the tournament in a hard-earned win against the Norwegian team, Mammon.
The Fall 73%
That leaves Group A looking like this:
Spiral (P2 W2 L0 POINTS 6 WM +33%)
Trapped (P2 W1 L1 POINTS 3 WM +98%)
The Fall (P2 W1 L1 POINTS 3 WM +46%)
Mammon (P2 W0 L2 POINTS 0)
We’re now back to Group B, where The Bridge and Hinterland also reside. Let’s look at the teams:
REPRESENTING SCOTLAND: SHETLAND
Form guide: Ann Cleeves’ Shetland stories received a strong adaptation (if not scheduling from the BBC) and its star striker is Jimmy Perez, who leads a tight-knit team around him. Some members of the press have questioned whether Perez is too nice to do it on the big stage, but we’re backing Perez to be one of the stars of the tournament if he can find his killer instinct.
REPRESENTING GERMANY: CENK BATU
Form guide: Cenk Batu might just surprise a few people in this tournament. With Turkish/German blood coursing through his veigns, undercover expert Batu is a tough centre forward, used to going it alone. But the lack of depth in the squad will probably do for this show in the early rounds, despite its huge support at home.
So who’s it going to be today? VOTE NOW!
