The Killing Times’ Euro 2016 Of Crime Drama: THE FINAL: The Bridge (Sweden) v The Killing (Denmark)

Standard

EURO2016We finally get to the final of the Euro 2016 Of Crime Drama today after three weeks of highly competitive tournament play and some stunningly close matches. After 42 fixtures comprising four teams of four, the quarter-finals and the semi-finals it’s time for the final match to decide who wins the coveted trophy and wouldn’t you know it, it features two Scandinavian teams.

The final semi-final saw this happen:

The Killing 53%
Happy Valley 47%

It was close, hard-fought, ding-dong affair, with Happy Valley taking an early lead only to be pegged back and, finally, overtaken by the Danish veteran.

That means it’s Sweden’s The Bridge taking on Denmark’s The Killing in today’s final. The Bridge overcame a tricky group – including Shetland and Hinterland – and then coasted through the quarters with victory over The Lens and then a much trickier semi-final

THE BRIDGEFORM GUIDE: The Bridge overcame a tricky group – including Shetland and Hinterland – and then coasted through the quarters with a crushing victory over The Lens and then a much trickier semi-final against France’s Spiral, another of the seeded teams. But it edged that one 2-1, and Saga Noren and co are in good shape to take on The Killing. Martin Rohde is still struggling with injury and is a doubt to make this final.

 

 

 

 

 

THE KILLINGFORM GUIDE: The Killing was drawn into arguably the easiest group of all and after coasting through that without breaking sweat, it took on surprise quarter-final qualifiers, Shetland. After overcoming the plucky Scots it played Happy Valley in the semis, which provided The Killing with its first proper test. Despite going behind early, Sarah Lund and co called upon all its veteran nous to come through. There has been much talk about The Killing’s distinctive kit throughout the tournament, and many thought that the team’s Fair Isle team jerseys would hinder it during the summer months. That just wasn’t the case.

 

 

 

So… it’s Sweden versus Denmark, The Bridge versus The Killing; it’s the final that everyone wanted to see. VOTE NOW!
