Key Statistics After the Euro 2020 Final

europei-italia-azzurri

Let’s take a look at the key statistics from the 50 matches that have taken place at Euro 2020. Such information can be very useful when predicting the results in the rest of the tournament.

Firstly, the number of goals scored in 51 games is 142. The average number of goals per game in this tournament was 2.78. At Euro 2016, the 51 games played produced 108 goals at an average of 2.12 per game.

Now let’s look at the under/over markets. Over 90 minutes, there were 26 games with over 2.5 goals and 25 under 2.5. 14 games so far at Euro 2020 had over 3.5 goals scored in 90 minutes.

25 out of 51 games saw both teams score.  

Of the 140 goals scored, only 52 have come in the first half. The most popular time to scorewas the 46th to 60th minutes with 30 goals scored. Second was 76th to 90th (including injury time) with 29 goals scored. For the first half, 23 have been scored from the 31st minute to when the ref blows for half time. That means from the 31st to 60th minute of games, 53 goals have been scored, the same total was achieved for the 61st to 90th minutes. Only 29 goals were scored in the first half hour of games. 

Top scorers at Euro 2020 were Spain with 13 goals with Italy next on 12. Cristiano Ronaldo and Patrik Schick top the goalscorer charts with five goals.

Tips from our Experts on How to make Euro 2020 Predictions

Current Form

When you are deciding who will be the winners in the Euro 2020 finals, it is important to pay attention to the statistics that relate to the countries taking part in the tournament. It is important to back a side that is in form rather than one that has had several defeats of late. There will be a lot of friendlies played before the tournament begins. The results of these games aren't too important unless full strength line-ups are being fielded. It is important though to look at the performances of individual players to see who is in form and who isn't. All very important when you are considering goalscorer markets or teams likely to keep a clean sheet. Look at the results of competitive matches rather than friendlies, the latter will see lots of experimental line-ups and substitutions galore.

Venues

This is a different tournament to others with the large number of hosts. Looking at where the game is being played is even more important for the Euro 2020 finals. Teams that may not go onto win the tournament could still be worth backing if they are playing in their own country. Our teams of experts will guide you with plenty of statistics that will help you get winners.

Squad Selections

Players all around Europe are doing their best to catch the eye of their national managers and earn a place in the Euro 2020 squad. There will be disappointment of course and also celebrations as players make it into the squad. It is important to look at who is selected for each country. Are there any notable absences due to injury or a manager simply deciding not to pick a certain player? For example, Portugal's chances of successfully defending their title would be severely damaged if Cristiano Ronaldo was to miss the tournament. The Netherlands will be missing the defensive abilities of Virgil van Dijk. Imagine what would happen if England were without Harry Kane or Raheem Sterling?

Look at the number of caps that have been earned by the players selected. An inexperienced side isn't likely to win the tournament, though a good display would be a pointer towards the 2022 World Cup.

The importance of the match

You would expect that every match in this tournament is going to be important but that isn't the case. We're talking about the group stages here and in particular the last match each side plays. If Italy have already won the group or qualified after two games, they might decide to rest some players before their last sixteen match. A country that has already been eliminated after a couple of losses may opt to make changes and give some other players a chance to appear in the tournament, particularly inexperienced players who'd benefit from playing. If this is the case, then it will have a reflection on the odds that are offered by the bookmakers.

Rivalries

You also need to take into account the rivalries that exist between teams taking part in the Euro 2020 championship. Portugal face France in the group stages, a repeat of the 2016 final and France will be out for revenge. It's possible that England might have to play Scotland if the latter manage to win their play-off path. Now that would be a clash to look forward too with little love lost between the two sides. Then there's the match between Denmark and Finland. Also, looking at the group there are a few matches being played between sides who qualified from the same group so have recent history between them. This includes England and Czech Republic, Spain and Sweden and Belgium and Russia.

If you take these areas into consideration then this will help you make a correct prediction of how games will go. Our expert team of writers will help you every step of the way by highlighting important areas that could play a key part in the final result.

Euro 2020 Group by Group and Results Updates

Group A

prosnostic-euro-groupe-a

Italy began the tournament with a comprehensive 3-0 win over Turkey. The game was played in Rome and Italy certainly look to be contenders to win Euro 2020, not having lost a game since 2020. Turkey have a battle on their hands now to get into the knockout stages. 

Saturday saw Wales draw 1-1 with Switzerland. The Welsh side had to come from behind to get the valuable point. Switzerland thought they had regained the lead in the dying moments of the game. However, VAR ruled it offside and both teams had to settle for a point. 

The second matches were played on Wednesday 16 June. Wales beat Turkey 2-0 with a goal in each half and could even afford to have Gareth Bale miss a penalty. With four points from two games, Wales look certain to be in the knockout stages. Italy made certain of their place in the last 16 with a 3-0 victory over Switzerland. The win makes it ten straight victories for Italy, all with clean sheets.

Group A concluded on Sunday 20 June. Italy made eight changes as they'd already made it to the last sixteen but still beat Wales 1-0. That makes it 30 games unbeaten now and 11 in a row without a goal being conceded and just one in the last 15. Wales finished second in the group despite that loss, finishing ahead of Switzerland on goal difference. Switzerland beat Turkey 3-1 and with four points should be one of the best third placed sides. Poor Turkey go home having lost all three matches and conceding eight goals.

Final Table:  Italy 9 Wales 4 Switzerland 4 Turkey 0

Group B

belgique-euro-20112019

Belgium began the group with a convincing 3-0 win over Russia. The game was played in Russia, so an even more impressive result. Romelu Lukaku scored two of the goals so anyone with a bet on him to be top scorer is off to a good start. 

The other game in the group was between Denmark and Finland. It will forever be remembered for the cardiac arrest suffered by Christian Erikson. The game was suspended but thankfully Erikson is recovering well in hospital. The game carried on later in the evening after Erikson had spoken to his teammates from his hospital bed. Finland, playing in their first ever major finals won the match 1-0.  

Wednesday saw Russia boost their hopes of making it to the last sixteen with a 1-0 win over Finland Belgium went behind early on to Denmark on Thursday but ended up winning the game 2-1. . Belgium are through to the last sixteen and won the group after defeating Finland 2-0 in their final group match on Monday 21 June. It proved to be a happy ending for Denmark as they beat Russia 4-1 and finished second in the group with Finland in third and Russia bottom and eliminated.

Final Group Table - Belgium 9 Denmark 3 Finland 3 Russia 3

Group C

The Netherlands won their first match of this group on Sunday 13 June. They went 2-0 up on Ukraine but were pulled back to 2-2 before a late goal gave them a 3-2 win. They are only second in the group though after Austria had a 3-1 win over North Macedonia. Thursday 17 June saw Ukraine bounce back with a 2-1 win over North Macedonia, both goals coming in the first half. The evening saw the Netherlands get their second win with a 2-0 win over Austria. The Netherlands ended the group with a 3-0 win over North Macedonia. The other game saw Austria get a 1-0 win over Ukraine and that saw them finish second in the group.

Final Group Table:  The Netherlands 9 Austria 6 Ukraine 3 North Macedonia 0

Group D

angleterre-euro-20112019

England won their opening game in this group beating Croatia 1-0 on Sunday 13 June. A second half goal by Raheem Sterling gave them the win, though they will need to improve to challenge for the title. Croatia didn't look a great side at all and may struggle to finish in the top two. The second match in the group took place on Monday 14 June and saw the Czech Republic beat Scotland 2-0 with a goal in each half. 

The second set of games took place on Friday 18 June. In the 5pm KO, Croatia came from behind to grab a 1-1 draw with the Czech Republic. At 8pm, England put in a disappointing performance against Scotland drawing 0-0 and leaving the Czechs (their final opponents) still top of the group.

England won the group after beating the Czech Republic 1-0 on Tuesday 22 June. Raheem Sterling scored the winner in the first half but despite good performances from Saka, Sterling and Maguire, England still need to improve a great deal to be contenders. Runners-up in the group were Croatia who ended Scotland's hopes with a 3-1 win in Glasgow. The Czechs finished third but will go through to the last sixteen and probably have an easier draw than England.

Final Table:  England 7 Croatia 4 Czech Republic 4 Scotland 1

Group E

prosnostic-euro-groupe-e

Group  E began on Monday 14 June and there were two unexpected results. Firstly, Slovakia beat Poland 2-1 extending their unbeaten run to six matches.  They took the lead in the first half only for the Poles to get level a minute into the second half. Slovakia got the winning goal and it's only their second win in a European Championships finals. The other game saw group favourites Spain held to a goalless draw by Sweden. The Spaniards had 75% of the possession and had 17 goal chances but still couldn't score. Sweden went to the top of the group on Thursday 18 June with a 1-0 win over Slovakia. Saturday 19 June saw Spain in action but again they were unable to win and could only draw 1-1 with Poland.

Spain finally found their scoring boots when beating Slovakia 5-0 on Wednesday 23 June though two of their goals were scored by their opponents. It could have been six but Morata missed a first half penalty, the second they've missed so far. The win saw Spain finish in seconc place. The group winners were Sweden who scored a late goal to beat Poland (eliminated) 3-2. Slovakia finished third with three points but with a goal difference of minus five, they won't be in the knockout stages.

Final Group Table:  Sweden 7 Spain 5 Slovakia 3 Poland 2

Group F

prosnostic-euro-groupe-f

Last but not least we have what is known as 'The Group of Death.'  World champions France got their campaign off to a good start with a 1-0 win against Germany in Munich. Earlier in the day, it looked as if Hungary might get a draw with the defending champions Portugal. It was goalless going into the 84th minute. However, Portugal broke through and eventually won 3-0 with two of the goals coming from Cristiano Ronaldo.  Saturday 19 June was a dramatic day in this group. France had to come from behind to get a 1-1 draw with Hungary. They still ended the day top of the group though after Germany beat Portugal 4-2 after trailing in the first half. 

The final set of games had absolutely everything. France trailed and led Portugal but ended up drawing 2-2. Cristiano Ronaldo scored two penalties taking him to five goals for the tournament. The draw saw France win the group and Portugal finish third but make the last sixteen. Meanwhile in Munich, Germany had to twice come from behind to get a 2-2 draw with Hungary and finish second in the group. Just what might Hungary have achieved if in any other group?

Final Group Table: France 5 Germany 4 Portugal 4 Hungary 2
