Golden Boot pursuit for Dutch deadly duo

With Euro 2020 squads now being announced, there was somewhat of a shock when Wolfsburg striker, Wout Weghorst received a call up to Frank de Boer’s Netherlands squad.

The 28-year-old had a great domestic season – notching 20 goals – but only has four caps to his name, thus far. Our sources say it may prove to be a shrewd move by de Boer.

A recent supercomputer study conducted by bookmakers Casumo, revealed that ‘Wonder Wout’ will go on to be the tournament’s top goalscorer. Not only that, but he will form a formidable partnership with Memphis Depay. The Lyon striker also scored 20 league goals this season.

Weghorst won the Euro 2020 Golden Boot in five separate simulations, while his teammate managed to secure it twice.

Looking to place a top scorer Euro 2020 bet? Well, the Golden Boot odds aren’t in either player’s favour, with England’s Harry Kane leading the way at a price of 8/1 – Depay can be found at 15/1 and Weghorst at 30/1.

But in a group containing Austria, North Macedonia and Ukraine, the deadly duo must fancy their chances!

Number crunchers at the bookmaker have used a unique statistical model to predict who will be the tournament’s top scorer. Their series of complex calculations take into account: squads, fixtures, xG, form and more.
