Finally, Euro 2020 is nearly here. National team managers are starting to announce their squads for this summer and the excitement is building. This year’s competition is like no other, with games being played all over Europe.
11 cities from 11 different UEFA countries will host this tournament. Wembley has been awarded both of the semi-finals as well as the final and group stage matches.
The first game will take place at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, with Italy taking on Turkey on June 11th. There are a total of 24 nations taking part in this year’s Euros for only the second time.
VAR is also making its European Championship debut and no doubt it won’t have the best performance!
Euro 2020 Betting Odds
England – 9/2
To a lot of people’s surprise England are the favorites this summer. They have never won the Euros, with their best finish being the semi-finals in 1996, when they were hosts again.
However, over the past few years, excitement has been growing around the England side, especially after the World Cup in 2018. England got to the semi-finals and felt like they should have got to the final. England has a very good squad but do have some injuries to key men in Maguire and Henderson, and will need them fit to give them the best chance.
With the group stages, semis, and final being at the national stadium, this would be a huge advantage, if they got there! England has a very good squad currently with some of the most exciting players in the world in Kane, Foden, Grealish, Sancho, and many more. England are good enough to win it, but can they end the 55-year wait?
France – 5/1
The current World Cup holders would probably be the favorites if the final wasn’t at Wembley. Unlike England, they have won the Euros before in 1984 and 2000. In 2016 they came runners up and with winning the World Cup in 2018, French football is in a very good place at the moment.
France have arguably the best international squad in the competition with players like Pogba, Mbappe, Kante, Varane, and Griezmann, all players who would get in any squad. Even though they are just behind the favorites, we personally think they are the ones to beat. In international tournaments, experience can be the difference between winning and losing and this side has a lot!
Belgium – 13/2
Currently ranked number one in the FIFA World Rankings is Belgium. They haven’t had much luck when it comes to the European Championships with their best finish being third in 1972. Recently though they have improved a lot and it’s shown getting to the quarters in 2016 and coming third in the 2018 World Cup.
However, a bit like England back in the early 2000’s theirs a feeling that Belgium may have just had their Golden Generation. They have an amazing attacking lineup in De Bruyne, Lukaku, Hazard, Mertens, Carrasco, and Tielemans. However, at the back is where they are weak. Vermaelen, Alderweireld, and Vertonghen are all aging now and arguably past their best. The attackers are going to need to be at their very best this summer!
Germany – 15/2
The competition’s most successful nation are priced slightly higher than we anticipated. Germany have won the Euro’s three times, the most recent of which was in 1996 at Wembley. They boast a very good record overall in the competition, having played in it 12 times and only not reaching the semi’s at least on three occasions.
They struggled at the World Cup in 2018 though, not getting out of the group sages to everyone’s surprise. Thomas Muller is back in the squad which is a huge boost He hadn’t been picked for a while but his form this season was too good not to. Germany have great depth in their squad which includes Werner, Sane, Gnabry, Havertz, Goretzka, Kroos and Gundgogan to name a few.
