Who are the Favourites to Win Euro 2020

There are several favourites to win Euro 2020. Here’s our prediction.

France 🇫🇷

As 2018 World Cup champions, France are rightly the favourites to go all the way at the Euro too. Their level of talent is legendary, with several options in each position. It’s safe to say that most Euro 2020 winner predictions will have Les Bleus there or thereabouts.

In terms of Euro 2020 outright betting, Didier Deschamps’ side is available with odds as low as 5/1 from bookmakers such as Paddy Power, Betfair and Betting Exchange. Those are pretty good Euro 2020 outright winner odds.

When it comes to defence, the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba are incredibly strong players, and they know they can also rely on Raphael Varane and Presnel Kimpembe. The French team reached the final in 2016 and have been champions on two occasions, 1984 and 2000.

Belgium 🇧🇪

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.

In terms of Euro 2020 outright odds, you can get Belgium at a pretty remarkable odds of 11/2 with Betfair. 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.

England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

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. In terms of Euro 2020 outright odds, you can get England at 28/5 from Smarkets.

Spain 🇪🇸

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. They are available at a solid 9/1 from Unibet. 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.

Portugal 🇵🇹

Seven bookmakers are offering a 10/1 price on Portugal for Euro 2020 outright betting. We think they’ll feature pretty prominently in a lot of experts’ Euro 2020 winner predictions because their squad is bursting with talent.

Portugal was, of course, crowned Euro champion in 2016. It was the first major honour in its long history. Cristiano Ronaldo lifted the trophy at the Stade de France. History was made. They were definite underdogs that time, relying on the brilliance of Ronaldo and the stubbornness of figures like Pepe in defence.

This time, however, things are a little different. The likes of Bernado Silva and Joao Felix have become superstars in their own right, while the old guard is still going strong too. They are excellent dark horses and certainly have the potential to go all the way.

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: Italy 🇮🇹

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.

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. This outsider team is available at the best price of 8/1 from the likes of BetVictor, Ladbrokes and Coral.

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.
