Euro 2021 betting:how much influence is the site factor
6/10/2021 7:15:15 AM
This time the European Cup was held in 11 cities without precedent. If you look at the flight distances between Group A and Group E, you will know that the "geographical advantage" has a huge impact. Europe is actually much larger than you think. The local customs, temperature and humidity are different. There is also a huge disparity, not to mention the differences in the individual qualities of the 11 courses. Before studying the index for this European Cup, we should first study the geography, that is, the geographical factors of each group. This article will help you crack the passwords of the 11 host cities to see who takes advantage and who suffers a big loss.
1. Fly the farthest
Switzerland is bitter, Poland is more bitter
The teams that have a home advantage in this European Cup will save a lot of troubles. The ones that have a home advantage are Italy, Denmark, Russia, the Netherlands, England, Scotland, Spain, Germany and Hungary. Among them, Italy, Denmark, the Netherlands, England, Spain and Germany do not need to transfer at all and are the teams with the most geographical advantage. Although St. Petersburg has hosted two group matches, Russia still cannot enjoy three "full home" treatments. The key match between them and Denmark will be held in Copenhagen. For the game between Scotland and England, Scotland must also go to Wembley to play. Fortunately, the straight-line distance between Glasgow and London is only 532 kilometers.
Let's take a look at the distance between the two host cities of each group:
Group A Rome & Baku
The straight-line distance is about 3107km
Estimated flight time: 7 hours
Group B Copenhagen & Saint Petersburg
Straight line distance: about 1143km
Estimated flight time: 2.5 hours
Group C Amsterdam & Bucharest
Straight line distance: about 1785km
Estimated flight time: 3 hours
Group D London & Glasgow
Straight line distance: about 532km
Estimated flight time: 1 hour and 15 minutes
Group E Saint Petersburg & Seville
Straight line distance: about 3574km
Estimated flight time: 7.5 hours
Group F Munich & Budapest
Straight line distance: about 562km
Estimated flight time: 1 hour and 15 minutes
Based on the above statistics, it is not difficult to find that Group A and Group E will be the two groups with the longest flight distance. Among them, the Swiss team in Group A is particularly hard. Their match arrangement is Baku-Rome-Baku. The former will rest for 5 days and the latter will rest for 4 days. Fortunately, the two places are adjacent to the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Caspian Sea. The air humidity in June is about 50%, and the temperature difference is only 3-5 degrees Celsius. It is not difficult to adapt. The key is serious flight fatigue. Switzerland is not the hardest team this time. The Polish team in Group E is the expeditionary force. If it weren't for Dublin and Bilbao who could not promise the audience to enter the stadium, the Group E team would not have to run like this. UEFA eventually changed the venues of Group E to Seville and St. Petersburg. The straight-line distance between the two places is about 3574 kilometers, which is the longest distance among the six groups this time. Poland is the only team in this group that needs to return twice, specifically St. Petersburg-Sevilla-St. Petersburg. The former will rest for 5 days and the latter will rest for 4 days. After the Swedish team ended the first round of the game against Spain, they had to go to St. Petersburg immediately, with only three days of rest in the middle. This is a severe test for Sweden, whose main lineup is older. In addition, the temperature, air humidity, local customs, and even the food and beverage tastes of Seville are very different from those of St. Petersburg, which puts high demands on the adaptability of Poland, Sweden and Slovakia.
2. Transition master
Group C and Group E are the most prone to "unacceptable"
The summer of the 2002 World Cup in Korea and Japan made European teams generally uncomfortable. Although nearly 20 years have passed, everyone must be impressed. The last European Cup was held in France. My feeling is that the difference in climate, dry humidity, and diet between northern cities and southern cities such as Marseille is relatively large. The 11 cities of this European Cup are located in various coordinates in the north, west, southeast and middle of Europe. For a team that plays more games, it tests the ability to adapt to different places. The problem of "unacceptable" will definitely have a certain impact on the team's state.
From the perspective of the number of transitions, in addition to the two “sufferers” of Switzerland and Poland mentioned above, there are also several teams that are also in relatively difficult schedules. Let’s take a look specifically-
Belgium: St. Petersburg-Copenhagen-St. Petersburg, the former will rest for 5 days and the latter will rest for 4 days.
Austria: Bucharest-Amsterdam-Bucharest, both trips will rest for 4 days.
Scotland: Glasgow-London-Glasgow, the former will rest for 5 days, the latter will rest for 4 days
Portugal: Budapest-Munich-Budapest, the two itineraries are both rested for 4 days.
After statistics, it is not difficult to find that in addition to Switzerland and Poland, the above four teams are also relatively "tossing back and forth." Take Group D Scotland as an example. Although Glasgow is very close to London, Edinburgh Airport is still more than 50 kilometers away from Hampton Park. Therefore, the plane + bus will consume some energy, but it is not difficult to adapt to the British climate. . The differences in climatic conditions are relatively large in Amsterdam and Bucharest in Group C. The temperature and humidity of the latter are significantly higher. Needless to say, for Group E, the straight-line distance between St. Petersburg and Seville is about 3574 kilometers, which has exceeded the distance between Harbin and Shenzhen. The difference in climate can be imagined. According to the latest weather forecast, Seville’s daily The highest temperature is basically above 33 degrees Celsius, which is the hottest place in the 11 venues of the European Cup, followed by Baku in Azerbaijan. Speaking of Baku, everyone must remember that the placement of the 2019 Europa League final here made Arsenal and Chelsea fans complain. London and Baku are far apart. At the time, according to the official quote, it cost 1,000 pounds to go from London to Baku. Even if you choose to transfer, the cost is at least more than 800 pounds. Two diehard Chelsea fans, Jack Ralph and Kevin Cobb, spent 5 days and 6 nights, including a 24-hour train journey in the five segments, before arriving in Baku from the London Expedition. In addition, because of the political dispute between Azerbaijan and Armenia for more than 20 years, Arsenal's Armenian star Mkhitaryan finally gave up his trip to Baku. This is also a rare case in recent years where players abandon the competition due to the location of the game.
