With Euro 2020 kicking off on 11th June 2021, football fans across the continent are already making their Euro 2020 winner predictions. A few teams seem to be the favourites for bettors and bookmakers alike, but England has the best odds across the board, making them the team to watch.
Who are the Favourites to Win Euro 2020
There are several favourites to win Euro 2020. Here’s our prediction.
Like Belgium, England is currently benefiting from a new golden generation. Unlike Belgium, however, that of the Three Lions has only just come along. Young stars like Jadon Sancho, Phil Foden and Jude Bellingham will not be at their peaks for years to come.
But the likes of Harry Kane, Jordan Henderson and Raheem Sterling are all in their prime. The nation’s hopes are bubbling to the surface once more, desperate to better their semi-final finishing at the 2018 World Cup. Could they secure the first trophy since the 1966 World Cup? The fact that it is effectively a home tournament for them will help.
Gareth Southgate’s side will rightly be a prominent feature in many people’s Euro 2020 winner predictions.
England were frustrated by the Auld Enemy as Scotland held them to a goalless draw. Gareth Southgate’s men were somewhat underwhelming and the Scots arguably had the better chances so with Harry Kane and company misfiring, changes are anticipated for the upcoming match with the Czech Republic. On the positive side, the clean sheet was England’s seventh in their last eight international matches so the emphasis for improvement is very much on the attacking side for Gareth Southgate and his team.
With over 10 bookmakers offering Italy at odds of 12/1, they are a good option to back ahead of the tournament. While they aren’t likely to be the first name that comes to mind in many punters’ Euro 2020 winner predictions, they are certainly a good horse to back as an outside challenger.
Roberto Mancini has the likes of Ciro Immobile, Giorgio Chiellini and Lorenzo Insigne to call up from his old guard. But youngsters, such as Moise Kean and Gianluigi Donnarumma, will certainly have a role to play too if these outsiders want to succeed.
Italy vs Turkey match summary
Italy’s impressive opening 3-0 win over Turkey may have put them on the radar of many fans and it has certainly seen their odds shorten somewhat. With their defence looking formidable having kept nine clean sheets in their last nine international matches, and their attack led by Ciro Immobile looking potent, they still represent good value to go all the way.
It wasn’t long ago that Spain were all-conquering champions. They won three tournaments in a row between 2008 and 2012, with two European Championships sandwiching a World Cup. They may not have quite the same level of talent in their squad in 2021 but they will not be far off if they perform to the standard we know they are capable of.
In terms of the Euro 2020 predictions the bookmakers think are viable, Spain is among the top five favourites. As far as Euro 2020 outright winner betting goes, this is a very healthy option.
Sergio Ramos and Sergio Busquets are the only true survivors from the golden-era Spanish team of 2008-2012. But there are new heroes in the form of Thiago, Dani Olmo and Ferran Torres.
Belgium’s golden generation is reaching its peak. They may never have such talent among their ranks ever again. They reached the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup but for a team blessed with such talent, that will not be enough.
Given that Belgium is likely to feature near the top of most commentators’ Euro 2020 winner predictions, those sound like decent odds to us.
Roberto Martinez will have to rely on the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard if the team is going to have the necessary firepower upfront to go all the way. Of course, there is also Kevin De Bruyne’s brilliance too.
Belgium v Russia Summary
Belgium produced an incredibly professional display in their opening match against Russia as they cruised to a 3-0 win. They came into EURO 2020 as the number one ranked team in the world and their performance against Russia underlined that status. With upcoming matches against Denmark and Finland to come and a favourable pathway through the tournament, confidence will be higher than ever in the camp for Roberto Martinez’s men.
Denmark v Belgium Summary
Belgium demonstrated their credentials once again with a second win to start the tournament but this time they had to come from behind to beat Denmark 2-1. Kevin De Bruyne was the star man coming off the bench at half-time following injury and he provided an assist for Thorgan Hazard before scoring the winner himself. With their final group game against Finland, Belgium may rotate but Roberto Martinez will want key men like De Bruyne and Eden Hazard to build their fitness and keep their winning ways.
Who are the Euro 2020 Underdogs?
All the teams below have the potential to go far at the Euro. Let’s see who the Euro 2020 outsiders are.
The Unexpected Euro 2020 Outsider: Netherlands 🇳🇱
After a couple of years in the wilderness, the Netherlands are now back in peoples’ Euro 2020 winner predictions, and quite rightly too. Virgil Van Dijk will be back fighting fit and a heavily relied-upon member of their defence alongside the incredibly talented Matthijs de Ligt.
In midfield, they have the talents of Frenkie de Jong, Donny van de Beek and Georginio Wijnaldum. Some have accused them of being a little light up front, and that could be their downfall. You can get them at 9/1 at multiple bookmakers.
The Unexpected Euro 2020 Outsider: Croatia 🇭🇷
Croatia did unbelievably well to reach the final of the 2018 World Cup. A reliable foundation built from Luka Modric, Ivan Rakitic, Ivan Perisic and Mario Mandzukic saw them become a cult favourite team. Now, they are all three years older and past their respective primes.
However, it would be foolish to write them off entirely from your Euro 2020 winner predictions. In terms of Euro 2020 winner odds, you can get Zlatko Dalic’s side at a nice 39/1. It is worth a quid or two, in our view. Euro 2020 winner betting is never going to be straightforward, but this team offers good value for money.
The Unexpected Euro 2020 Outsider: Poland 🇵🇱
Poland is an outsider when it comes to Euro 2020 winner predictions because of one superstar. Robert Lewandowski has been in the prime of his distinguished career over the past two years.
The striker has scored goal after goal after goal for Bayern Munich, who won the Champions League with him leading the line in 2019-20. He is Poland’s most-capped player and top-goalscorer with 63 goals in 116 appearances.
Poland reached the quarter-finals in 2016 and will be hoping to advance past this stage in the summer. Some bookmakers are offering odds of 100/1 on them.
The Unexpected Euro 2020 Outsider: Germany 🇩🇪
It seems strange to discuss Germany as a dark horse candidate, but here we are. After winning the World Cup, Joachim Low’s side entered a downward spiral which culminated in their group stage exit from the 2018 World Cup.
But after some soul searching, a revitalised Germany will surely turn up in the summer hungry for more success. If they are to go all the way, they will need the likes of Joshua Kimmich, Toni Kroos and Marc-Andre ter Stegen to give their absolute all.
Germany coach Joachim Löw was not overly disappointed despite losing their opening game at the hands of France. They dominated possession and there were so many positives about their play other than the fact they could not score. Löw will look to remedy that in the upcoming matches and they will be confident of bouncing back against Portugal and Hungary in the next two games.
