Euro 2020 Odds

After a year’s wait Euro 2020 is imminent! The best Euros bookmakers have created an outright betting market and it’s no surprise to find the strongest teams in Europe forming an orderly queue. The vast majority of operators have now installed England as joint favourites with France and the Three Lions certainly couldn’t have asked for a more favourable draw.

England have been put into Group D with Croatia, Czech Republic and Scotland, with Gareth Southgate’s team playing all three games at Wembley Stadium and they can also look forward to home advantage should they make it to the semi-final and final.

However, some will instead prefer the chances of world champions France at similar prices, with Les Bleus having demonstrated their credentials at the 2018 World Cup and manager Didier Deschamps still has the nucleus of that winning squad for next summer’s European Championship campaign.

Belgium are second or third favourites with most firms and the Red Devils have a squad packed with quality and the mouth-watering prospect of Eden Hazard and Kevin de Bruyne operating in tandem. Roberto Martinez’s side were able to beat Brazil at the 2018 World Cup before getting turned over by France at the semi-final stage.

The Netherlands, Spain and Germany are also trading at single figures and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see any of these teams lifting the trophy. The Dutch have enjoyed a massive resurgence under Ronald Koeman considering they didn’t qualify for the 2018 World Cup, while Spain and Germany represent the old guard in terms of teams who have recently claimed major tournament successes.

An Italian success might raise a few eyebrows although Roberto Mancini has successfully brought through a crop of younger Italian players to the international fore, with Portugal the current champions and sure to give a good account of themselves, while Croatia were the 2018 World Cup finalists and can’t be easily dismissed considering their big tournament pedigree.

Best Euro 2020 Betting Odds

WATCH: The Euros Verdict

Bookmakers.co.uk is travelling around the UK, chatting to fans at fanzones and outside stadiums, garnering reactions to the biggest EURO 2020 games. Check out the latest episode of The Euros Verdict:


The best bookmakers (many of whom offer ACCA insurance) are prepared to lay around 6/1 about an England victory and they are likely to see plenty of patriotic money come their way. Indeed, every bookie will hope the Three Lions go deep to further the betting interest in the tournament although most operators will report a loss if Gareth Southgate steers the team to a first major tournament victory since 1966.

The world champions currently sit at 9/2, while the biggest we’ve found about Belgium is 7/1. We’d recommend you take a slice of this before the Red Devils shorten as the knockout rounds approach.

The Netherlands are generally a 7/1 chance and the Dutch could have a favourable quarter of the draw, while Germany, Spain and Italy are all available at single figure quotes with the best bookmakers for the Euros. However, the Azzurri are as big as 14/1 with many bookies who seem determined to take on some of the leading lights.

Portugal stunned everyone at Euro 2016 although many bookies are comfortable enough to lay 20/1 about Cristiano Ronaldo & Co doing it all over again, while the bookies think that Croatia are realistically the only other team who can triumph at the Euros, with the Blazers a best price 28/1 if you shop around hard enough. As the Euros progress you’ll find up to date betting tips on bookmakers.co.uk so make sure to stick with us throughout the tournament!

What Happened With Qualifier Playoffs?

In five of the last six EUROs there were playoffs. However, the 2020 play-offs offered a totally different format. For the first time teams had to advance in more than one round. Unlike preceding tournaments, sides qualified through the UEFA Nations League rather than European Qualifiers.

A number of draws in November 2019 dictated the playoff fixtures. The qualifier play-off semi finals took place on 8 October 2020. The results were as follows:

Path A:

  • Bulgaria 1 - 3 Hungary
  • Iceland 2 - 1 Romania

Path B:

  • Bosnia and Herzegovina 1 - 1 Northern Ireland (3 - 4 pens)
  • Slovakia 0 - 0 Republic of Ireland (4 - 2 pens)

Path C:

  • Norway 1 - 2 Serbia
  • Scotland 0 - 0 Israel (5 - 3 pens)

Path D:

  • Georgia 1 - 0 Belarus
  • North Macedonia 2 - 1 Kosovo
The results of the playoff finals for each path were as follows:

Path A:

  • Hungary 2 - 1 Iceland

Path B:

  • Northern Ireland 1 - 2 Slovakia (extra time)

Path C:

  • Serbia 1 - 1 Scotland (4 - 5 pens)

Path D:

  • Georgia 0 - 1 Macedonia

Group A Analysis

Italy

With the emergence of teams like Netherlands, Belgium and England, the Italians have become something of a forgotten football nation although Roberto Mancini’s side were very impressive when qualifying for Euro 2020. The Azzurri claimed ten consecutive victories, scoring thirty-seven goals which is a ratio that we don’t associate with teams of yore.

An impressive showing next summer will mean Italy will no longer be flying under the radar, with the goals shared around during qualifying and it was Torino’s Andrea Belotti who led the way. However, Ciro Immobile and Lorenzo Insigne will also be challenging for attacking places, while Jorginho and Nicolo Barella are the danger men in midfield.

Wales

Like Chris Coleman in 2016, Ryan Giggs has steered Wales to the 2020 European Championships although it’s clearly a tall order to see the Reds reaching the semi-final stage as they did four years. Much depends on the form of Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey, although both have struggled for game time at their respective European clubs and there’s a shortage of quality elsewhere.

Wales will be in competition with Switzerland and Turkey to emerge from a tricky Group A, with Giggs’ side noticeably struggling on the road in qualifying and one can’t help but feel that the real achievement was actually getting to another major tournament so quickly after those heroics in France.

Turkey

Turkey did not qualify for a European Championship until 1996 and it was twelve years ago when they reached the semi-final stage of Euro 2008. However, the national team were fantastic when qualifying for this summer’s tournament and pushed France all the way in their section. They also finished well clear of Iceland in the final standings.

The Turks have strong defensive foundations thanks to Leicester’s Caglar Soyuncu who has thrived in the Premier League this season, while Cenk Tosun is everything for his national side that he hasn’t been for Everton. There is also the steely Kaan Ayhan in the defensive midfield position and we think they can make the knockout stage.

Switzerland

The Swiss have a fairly dire record when it comes to the European Championship and have only emerged from the group stage on one occasion. However, they finished top of their qualifying section for Euro 2020 and have been handed a favourable draw which could see them play a team like Denmark should they finish second.

That will be the target for Vladimir Petkovic’s side who were disappointing when losing to Sweden in the 2018 World Cup last sixteen stage, although there remains that issue of scoring enough goals and the best option is probably Haris Seferovic on that front. On the flip side, that defensive stubbornness should stand them in good stand in matches against the Turks and Welsh.

Group B Analysis

Belgium

Some will think that Belgium should be outright favourites to win Euro 2020 and they look likely to finish top of Group B which will earn them a facile last sixteen encounter against a third-placed team. Providing Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne are fighting fit, we should see the Red Devils have plenty of the ball and Romelu Lukaku boasts an enviable scoring record for his country.

Roberto Martinez is under pressure to deliver this time around although the 2018 World Cup illustrated that the Belgians are now knocking on the door and they are arguably now the most offensive team in the world in terms of goal creation. Team spirit is strong within the ranks and we have no hesitation in backing them to win the European Championship.

Denmark

The Danes have the advantage of playing all three Group B matches at Parken Stadium and the hostile Copenhagen crowd should help them to qualify for the last sixteen. However, this is a team who continue to rely on Christian Eriksen and it’s fair to say that the midfield playmaker hasn’t had the best of seasons on a domestic front.

However, the Scandinavian side are hard to beat and didn’t suffer a normal time defeat at the 2018 World Cup, while they battled to come through a qualifying group that also featured Switzerland and Republic of Ireland. We’re expecting them to potentially meet the former should they go through as runner-up and potentially come off worse.

Russia

The 2018 World Cup hosts qualified with ease for this tournament, although Scotland and Israel didn’t put up a great deal of resistance and there are still question marks over Russia when it comes to playing away from home. However, Stanislav Cherchesov deserves enormous credit for galvanising an ailing international team.

Denis Cheryshev has been a late bloomer at this level although the Valencia midfielder has an excellent goal record for his country, while captain Artem Dzyuba is a man mountain who will lead the line and this is a side that have the capability to go through either as runner-up or as one of the best third-placed teams.

Finland

Finland have reached the European Championships for the first time in their history and they owe plenty to sharp shooter Teemu Pukki. The Norwich City striker scored an incredible ten goals during qualifying which helped the Finns finish second behind Italy and comfortably clear of Greece and Bosnia.

However, the Huuhkajat did lose four of their ten matches and could feasibly be the whipping boys in a competitive section, with many members of the squad not operating at a particularly high level for their club. Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Lukáš Hrádecký will have to be at his best if Finland are going to emerge from Group B.

Group C Analysis

Holland

It’s all looking rosy for the Netherlands national team despite failing to actually qualify for the 2018 World Cup. Since then, the Dutch reached the Nations League final and they’re now among the favourites to win Euro 2020, with captain Virgil van Dijk narrowly being pipped by Lionel Messi when it came to the recent Ballon d’Or voting.

He’s joined by Liverpool team-mate Gini Wijnaldum, while Frenkie de Jong, Donny van de Beek and Matthijs de Ligt are among the hottest young talents in Europe, while Lyon’s Memphis Depay has has an excellent domestic season in Ligue 1 and we’re expecting this Holland team to be very competitive next summer.

Ukraine

It might surprise some readers to learn that this is the third consecutive European Championship which Ukraine have qualified for, although the previous two appearances were something of a damp squib, especially Euro 2016 where the Yellow and Blue lost all of their matches and failed to score any goals.

Things are certainly looking up under Andriy Shevchenko and the national team actually finished top of their qualifying section ahead of Portugal, with the Ukrainians winning six and drawing two of their games. While Sheva is trying to manage expectations, the squad possesses genuine quality and that’s especially the case with duo Roman Yaremchuk and Ruslan Malinovskyi.

Austria

Austria were tipped as dark horses ahead of Euro 2016 before flattering to deceive and we’re not expecting a great deal from Das Team four years down the line, with head coach Franco Foda having a modest squad of players from which to select. Indeed, their qualifying section looked relatively weak and they finished a long way behind winners Poland.

Captain Julian Baumgartlinger continues to be a steady presence in midfield and Marko Arnautovic is capable of fireworks in attack, although a 4-2 defeat in Israel provided cause for concern and this is a country who have never been beyond the group stage at a European Championship.

Group D Analysis

England

England have never been favourites to win a European Championship before, although a near-flawless qualifying campaign following hard on the heels of a World Cup semi-final appearance has seen the Three Lions rise to the top of the outright betting market. There’s also the fact that they have been handed the easiest possible group at Euro 2020.

Gareth Southgate has strength in depth when it comes to every position and the emergence of Tammy Abraham, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Mason Mount provide exciting options, although there’s still that nagging doubt that England aren’t quite up to the standard required to winning a major tournament, especially when you consider the calibre of some of the other teams.

Croatia

Like England, the Blazers will be happy with a Group D place considering that Czech Republic and any play-off qualifier look eminently beatable. Let’s not also forget that Croatia were lining up in the World Cup final two years ago and there’s still life in some of the old guard. That includes Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic who continue to be a formidable midfield engine room.

The team were fairly comfortable winners of their Euro 2020 qualifying group and look capable of featuring at the business end of yet another major tournament, with manager Zlatko Dalic continuing to manage a talented crop of players who look set for a final hurrah before disbanding ahead of the 2022 World Cup.

Czech Republic

The years haven’t been kind to the Czech Republic although they finished a comfortable second place in their Euro 2020 qualifying group behind England and will now face the same team at Wembley where they previously lost by a heavy 5-0 scoreline. That illustrates the size of the task facing Jaroslav Šilhavý’s side who don’t boast that much quality in the ranks.

There will be reliance on Leipzig’s Patrik Schick to score goals and the Czechs did manage to beat an off-colour England in Prague recently, although those defeats in Kosovo and Bulgaria suggest that this modest outfit will probably fall short when it comes to reaching the knockout stage.

Group E Analysis

Spain

Luis Enrique has resumed control of the Spanish national team and he’ll attempt to rouse La Roja from a slumber which has been affecting them since winning Euro 2012. Two years later came the infamous exit at the 2014 World Cup and they weren’t much more convincing when getting knocked out of Euro 2016 and the most recent World Cup.

Sergio Ramos, Raul Albiol and Sergio Busquets continue to be the old guard, while Alvaro Morata and Paco Alcacer are the men chiefly responsible for scoring goals for a Spain team who continue to be in transition. Their qualifying campaign wasn’t altogether convincing and we see only marginal improvement in Euro 2020.

Sweden

Janne Andersson is doing a wonderful job in charge of the Swedish national team and they truly punched above their weight to qualify for the 2018 World Cup before reaching the quarter final stage of the competition. The manager has been able to call upon the same crop of players this time around along with Mainz 05 striker Robin Quaison who scored some important goals in qualifying.

Sweden will be typically workmanlike during Euro 2020 and could well emerge from a difficult group, although their reward for landing third place will be a clash against one of the group winners. Sadly they don’t have many match winners in the squad despite Emil Forsberg always rising to the big occasion in the midfield department.

Poland

Poland truly announced themselves at a European Championship four years ago when reaching the quarter final stage before a penalty shootout defeat against eventual winners Portugal. Robert Lewandowski is a big reason for the emergence of the national side and the Bayern Munich striker will carry a lively goal threat in this tournament.

The Poles qualified with plenty to spare and the squad will have a stack of experience in key positions including Wojciech Szczęsny, Kamil Glik, Łukasz Piszczek, Kamil Grosicki, Grzegorz Krychowiak and Piotr Zieliński. After a disappointing 2018 World Cup campaign, we’re expecting an improvement this time around.

Group F Analysis

Portugal

Portugal are the reigning champions and this could be the last time we see Cristiano Ronaldo at a European Championship, although Fernando Santos’ side couldn’t have been handed a tougher group considering that Germany and France lie in wait. The only advantage is that the Selecao will meet a play-off winner in their opening game.

The Portuguese are far from a one-man team, with Bernardo Silva, Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho among the star performers in midfield, while Andre Silva offers a genuine goal threat in attack. We think that the opening game should help them reach the last sixteen although that could be where the adventure ends.

France

In addition to the European champions, we also have the world champions in Group F and Les Bleus are still packed with the players that helped them triumph in Russia two years previously. Didier Deschamps is likely to operate with a similar formation and that means Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe causing damage as part of an attacking trident.

Deschamps will hope to have Paul Pogba firing on all cylinders after a struggle domestically, although N’Golo Kante offers a perfect foil for a robust defence which will be expertly marshalled by Raphael Varane. We’re expecting this French team to go deep, although perhaps Belgium will be able to get their revenge in the last four.

Germany

Germany were humiliated at the 2018 World Cup despite being among the pre-tournament favourites although they’ve been given a leg up at Euro 2020 by having home advantage during the group stage, even if they will have to meet the European and World champions in successive matches.

Joachim Low has made some wholesale changes to Die Mannschaft which has seen several elder statesmen dumped out, with Timo Werner, Serge Gnabry and Joshua Kimmich now the players upon which the hopes of a nation rest. There is still the gargantuan Manuel Neuer between the sticks, although the Germans could be on a collision course with England at the last sixteen stage.

Top Goalscorer Betting Odds

Harry Kane was the Golden Boot winner at the 2018 World Cup and it’s no surprise that the England captain is among the market leaders to score the most goals at Euro 2020. The Three Lions have a relatively easy group that includes Czech Republic and Scotland, with the Tottenham forward potentially filling his boots as he did two years ago.

However, some will think the 11/2 quotes a touch on the long side and we prefer the 13/2 about market leader Romelo Lukaku who looks certain to lead the line for a high-scoring Belgium side. The Inter forward was breathing down Kane’s neck at the recent World Cup and is sure to get plenty of ammunition from the likes of Eden Hazard and Kevin de Bruyne.

Cristiano Ronaldo is a 14/1 shot although could run into problems during a difficult group stage, while the same applies to Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann who will come up against stubborn German and Portuguese defences. It’s worth noting that the tournament top scorer generally has a few on the board before the knockout stage.

Memphis Depay and Alvaro Morata are trading at a bigger price, with the former likely to operate in an advanced position for the Netherlands, while the Spanish striker could make hay in Group E considering Sweden, Poland and Slovakia lie in wait.

England supporters may want to bear in mind that Raheem Sterling bagged a hat-trick against the Czechs during qualifying and the Manchester City forward is a best price 20/1 to win this summer’s Golden Boot, while Italy’s Ciro Immobile is trading at similar odds and could be Roberto Mancini’s preferred option.

Host Cities and Stadiums

UEFA made the unusual step of having multiple host nations for Euro 2020, with twelve original selected cities and countries. Eight of the cities and seven of the countries have never hosted a European Championship before, with Wembley Stadium having the honour of staging both semi-finals and also the final. Unfortunately Dublin and Bilbao are no longer hosting Euros games due to crowd size limits.

Ticket Information

Supporters of the qualified teams for Euro 2020 could apply for tickets up until 18 December, with fans now waiting to find out whether their application has been successful. There were a number of different options available for each match, with a tiered system allowing people to decide what type of seats that they wanted to get in the stadium.

It’s still possible that there might be tickets available after the initial allocation, with supporters of the winning play-off teams looking to secure seats to watch their teams in action. However, there will be a high demand for matches involving the host nations and especially for the latter rounds of the competition.

The first ever European Championship took place in 1960, with France hosting a tournament which featured just four teams; France, Soviet Union, Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia. There were a sum total of four matches played and it was the Soviet Union who were crowned winners.

Only four teams participated in the next four European Championships, although the number swelled to eight in 1980 when Italy hosted the tournament and that was won by West Germany for the second time, while eight teams also contested Euro 84, Euro 88 and Euro 92 with England making their third appearance in the latter.



It would be England who would host the 1996 European Championships where sixteen teams participated for the first time, with the Three Lions having a memorable campaign which saw them reach the semi-final stage before losing to eventual winners Germany. Four years later, France followed up their historic 1998 World Cup win by triumphing at Euro 2000, with Les Bleus beating Italy in the final.

Portugal hosted Euro 2004 and we saw one of the biggest shocks in the tournament’s history, with rank outsiders Greece making it to the knockout stage before beating holders France. The Greeks made their way to the final and played the host nation for a second time, securing a 1-0 victory and sending the nation into a week-long celebration.

At Euro 2008 and Euro 2012, we saw a vintage Spanish team claim the honours on both occasions, with La Roja also winning the 2010 World Cup to make it an illustrious treble after so many near-misses leading up to that point. Spain beat Germany in the 2008 final before thrashing Italy in the final 4-0 four years later.

At Euro 2016, we saw twenty-four teams competing for the first time and hosts France made their way to the final. However, it was Portugal who were able to beat Les Bleus in extra-time despite Cristiano Ronaldo incurring an injury early in the game.
