Euro 2020 Preview Information
The Euro 2020 tournament is being played in 12 cities across the continent. The semi-finals and final will be played at Wembley which is England’s national stadium. The tournament will feature 24 nations and 51 matches, after the original format of 16 teams and 31 matches was changed in 2016.
The decision to make the tournament a pan-continent event was made to ease the financial burden for each host country and celebrate 60 years of the tournament. The Euro tournament brings together European footballing nations and the finals will take place in the summer of 2021.
There will be 44 qualifiers for the finals who will play in six groups of four teams. The winner of the Euro 2020 Golden Boot should score about six goals and there are five leading goalscorers who appear at the top of the Euro 2020 top scorer odds.
The winner of the Golden Boot will probably play for a team that progresses to the semi-finals or further. Teams will only play three matches in the group stages which means players that are prominent in the Euro 2020 top scorer odds will qualify for the last 16. So one of our tips betting on top scorers would be to take a look at the players of the team that are considered favourites to win Euro 2021.

They were not at their best offensively and did not create as much as they would have liked but the two goals for Karim Benzema – his first for almost six years – provided a major boost. They move into the knockout stage in a confident move and ready to live up to their billing of tournament favourites.
