Euro Betting Tips

Find our tips and predictions on the Euro 2020 Finals in June and July of 2020.


Euro 2020 - Finals Update

A meeting held on March 17 announced that the Euro 2020 championship would not be taking place this year. The finals will now be held in June and July of 2021. There are of course still the play-offs to be played. They were due to take place at the end of March 2020 but will now be played at the start of June, if possible.

Euro 2020

The qualifying groups have been completed and the draw for the Euro 2020 finals has been made. We still have four places to be confirmed and the qualifiers will be decided by the play-off matches that take place in March of this year.  The finals begin on 12 June with the final being played on 12 July.

Whereas in previous tournaments, the finals have been played in one nation, this year they are being held across Europe with the semi-finals and finals being played at Wembley Stadium in London, England. Throughout June and July, there will be matches played by the 24 qualifiers as the sixtieth anniversary of the first European Championships is celebrated. Games will be played in 12 host cities including Munich, Bilbao, Bucharest and Saint Petersburg.

Portugal will be defending the title that they won in 2016 when beating France in the final. Since then, they have also won the European Nations League and will be among the favourites to win the 2020 title, though they have been given a difficult draw in the group stages. There will be many contenders for this important event with countries such as Germany, France, England, Italy, Spain, Belgium and the Netherlands all making strong claims to become the 2020 European Champions.  Our team of experts will be previewing each and every game that takes place and will do their best to supply you with as many winners as possible.

Euro 2020 Finals - The Experts Advice

fonctionnement-euro-2020

The finals will see six groups of four battling it out for a place in the last sixteen. The top two teams from each group will qualify for the knock-out stages plus the top four third placed countries. The draw has produced some fascinating matches, that's definitely the case in Group F which sees defending champions Portugal alongside France and Germany plus one of the winners of the play-off groups.

Germany have also lost in three finals, while the Netherlands won their only appearance in a final but have been knocked out at the semi-final stage on four occasions. Both England and Hungary have lost two semi-finals but are yet to reach a final. Spain are the only nation to have ever retained the European Championship title and this tournament is often more open than the World Cup.

Goals Statistics for the European Championships

Furthering our look back at previous European Championship tournaments, it's a good idea to look at how many goals have been scored. With so many markets now available to place bets on, this is important to do. If you're not sure who is going to win a game, you can always place a bet on how many goals will be scored in a match. With that bet the focus is on the goals not the eventual winner. A look back at Euro 2016 shows that there were on average 2.11 goals per game.

In the group stages, there were a lot of tight matches played. Groups A and E for example, saw five out of six games played having under 2.5 goals scored in them. Every single game in Group C saw that statistic come up. When it came to the knock-out stages, both of the semi-finals and final had under 2.5 goals scored in them. There's a lot at stake in these games and if the teams are evenly matched, then a bet on under 2.5 goals can be a good one to make.

When it comes to both teams scoring (another market where you don't need to predict the overall result), the 2016 tournament saw that statistic come up in 39% of the games played. In the knock-out stages, eight of the 15 matches played saw just the one team get on the scoresheet.

31% of the matches in the last European Championship finals ended up in draws. This was 30% for the group stages and 33% for the knock-out rounds. With sides being closely matched, then there is always the possibility of a game ending all-square.

In the last two finals, most of the goals were scored in the first half. This was 55% in 2016, a slight drop from the 62% recorded in 2012. There were some dramatic games in 2016 that saw late goals decide games. Who could ever forget the France win over Albania? France won that game 2-0 but with goals scored in the 90th and 96th minutes. Only five games in that tournament saw all the goals in a game scored in the first half.

Tips from our Experts on How to make Euro 2020 Predictions

aide-prosnostics-euro-2020

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.

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 would struggle if Virgil van Dijk was mssing and what 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 Play-Offs

There are four places in the Euro 2020 finals that are yet to be decided. There are 16 teams that have qualified for the play-offs via either the Euro 2020 groups or the Nations League. They have been drawn into four paths and there will be semi-finals and then a final to determine the qualifiers. It's all a bit complicated regards what happens to the winners of Path A as will be explained shortly. Here are the four paths and the teams taking part.

  • Path A:  Bulgaria v Hungary and Iceland v Romania
  • Path B:  Bosnia and Herzegovina v Northern Ireland and Slovakia v Ireland
  • Path C:  Norway v Serbia and Scotland v Israel
  • Path D:  Georgia v Belarus and North Macedonia v Kosovo

The semi-finals take place on March 26 with the finals on the 31st. If Path A is won by Romania, they will go into Group C of the finals with the winners of Path D going into Group F. If Romania do not win Path A, then the winners will go into Group F and the victors in Path D go into Group C.

Euro 2020 Group by Group

Group A

prosnostic-euro-groupe-a

Italy take on Switzerland, Wales and Turkey as they make their comeback in international tournaments. The Italians missed the last World Cup and failed to make it out of their Nations League group. They had few problems qualifying for this tournament winning all ten of their qualifiers and finishing 12 points clear with just four goals conceded and 37 scored. The main question in this group should be who will finish second?

Switzerland reached the semi-finals of the Nations League but had a tough time in their Euro 2020 qualifying group. They eventually won their group by a point from Denmark and will use their experience of playing in tournament finals as they bid to make it through to the last sixteen. Turkey put in a great performance in the qualifying groups only losing one of their 10 matches. They eventually finished second, just two points behind group winners and world champions France. Wales had to win their last match to qualify from Group E and will want to try and repeat their Euro 2016 semi-final finish. This is a tough group though and perhaps chasing one of the best third place places might be their best chance of making it into the knock-out stages.

To win the group

Italy - 4/7

Group B

belgique-euro-20112019

Belgium finished third in the 2018 World Cup and are one of the favourites to win this tournament. They won their qualifying group by six points winning all ten of their games. Second in that group was Russia and the pair will be facing each other again in this group. Russia won all their group matches aside from the two defeats inflicted on them by the Belgians. They will put in a strong bid to finish second in this group but face opposition from Denmark and Finland. Denmark finished second behind Switzerland in their group, a point behind Switzerland, while Finland are in their first ever finals. They were second behind Italy in their group with Norwich City striker Teemu Pukki scoring 10 of their 16 goals. Keeping him fit is a major priority between now and June.

To win the group

Belgium - 4/5

Group C

prosnostic-euro-groupe-c

The Netherlands are back in a major finals after missing the last European Championships and World Cup. They did reach the final of the Nations League and then qualified for these finals finishing second in their group, just two points behind Germany. They will look to prove that they can again be a major contender for titles and should be able to win this group. Ukraine are likely to finish second after an impressive qualifying campaign that saw them win their group three points ahead of defending champions Portugal. The big question is can they repeat that form in the finals. Austria finished second behind Poland in their qualifying group but lost three games. The final spot will be filled by the winners of either Path A or Path D in the play-off matches. 

To win the group

The Netherlands - 1/2

Group D

angleterre-euro-20112019

England only lost one of their qualifying matches and scored 37 goals in doing so. They look to build on their 2018 World Cup semi-final and 2019/20 Nations League third place and face some familiar opponents in this group. Croatia beat England in that World Cup semi-final but since then have drawn and lost to them in the Nations League. The Czech Republic were in England's qualifying group for this tournament. They lost 5-0 to them at Wembley but then defeated them 2-1 at home, so can't be ruled out. The final place in this group goes to the winner of play-off Path C and that could see an England v Scotland clash with Israel, Norway and Serbia the other possible qualifiers.

To win the group

England - 2/5

Group E

prosnostic-euro-groupe-e

Spain disappointed in the 2018 World Cup and Nations League but will hope to be major challengers for Euro 2020. They won their qualifying group by five points, winning eight and drawing two of their ten fixtures. They should be able to win this group with the main opposition coming from Sweden and Poland. The Swedes finished behind Spain in the qualifiers and the only game they lost was away to Spain, drawing with them at home. Poland won their group by six points and will aim to do better than the 2018 World Cup when being knocked out in the group stages. The winner of play-off Path B completes the group and that could be Bosnia-Herzegovina or Slovakia, though Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland will say otherwise.

To win the group

Spain - 1/3

Group F

prosnostic-euro-groupe-f

If ever there was a group of death, then this is it. Defending champions Portugal have to take on reigning world champions France and resurgent Germany. The winners of either play-off Path A or D have the difficult task of taking on that trio. Portugal have added the Nations League to their trophy cabinet but could only finish second behind Ukraine in the Euro 2020 qualifiers. Germany have had a tough time but bounced back to finish above the Netherlands in their qualifying group. France had a battle to finish above Turkey in their group but the world champions will be hoping to add the European title to their list of honours.

To win the group

France - 11/8

The Top Contenders to win Euro 2020

Portugal Going for the Double

portugal-2019-euro-2020-qualificacoes

Portugal are out to make history and become the first country to retain the European title. They have every right to believe that they could come out on top again, having won the Nations League last year. They didn't have a good World Cup in 2018 but while they still have Cristiano Ronaldo, anything is possible for them. Aside from Ronaldo, only Andre Silva is in double figures as far as international goals go. The Portuguese squad has plenty of talent though with players such as Bernardo Silva, Diogo Jota, Jao Felix, Ruben Neves, Joao Concela, Ricardo Pereira. Rui Patricio and Jose Moutinho. Those players are all doing well in the English Premier League (mainly with Wolverhampton Wanderers) and that experience can only help them in their defence of this title.

Belgium Still Knocking on the Door

prosnostic-vainqueur-euro-belgique

Belgium were quarter finalists in the last European championships and third in the 2018 World Cup. They failed to get out of their group in the Nations League but will be a major threat at Euro 2020. They again face Russia but shouldn't be scared of them after two victories in their qualifying group. The Belgians have such as strong squad and when you have the Hazard brothers, Romelu Lukaku, Kevin de Bruyne, Toby Alderweireld and Nacer Chadli, there is always the possibility that they can finally win a major tournament.

Back Belgium at Bet365

France Aim to add European Title to World Crown

france-euro-20112019

The last country to be World and European champions at the same time was Spain. France would already be in that position if they'd not lost the Euro 2016 final to Portugal. They had a tough qualifying group and only late on got the better of Turkey, who they lost to away. They failed to get out of the group stage in the Nations League but still have an experienced squad, particularly when it comes to their forward line. Antioine Griezmann and Olivier Giraud have 69 international goals between them and 21-year-old Kylian Mbappe already has 13. The improved form of Anthony Martial is and they will hope that Paul Pogba will be fit for the finals after missing several games for Manchester United. A lot will depend on his state of mind, though he often plays at a higher level for his country than his club. France have a difficult group to say the least but should be able to get through to the knock-out stages and then anything could happen.

England's Year at Last?

prosnostic-vainqueur-euro-angleterre

Not since 1966 have England won a major tournament but they have a good chance this year. They are the bookies favourites but you could spend all night arguing over whether that should be the case. Can they beat France, Spain, the Netherlands or Belgium? 2018 saw them beat Spain in the Nations League and their young side is gaining more experience after reaching the semi-finals of that competition. They had a good Euro 2020 qualifying group but the loss away to the Czech Republic (who they meet in their group in the finals) and conceding three at home to Kosovo again puts doubts over their defensive abilities. Up front it's a different story with players such as Kane, Sterling and Rashford. Have they got enough experience to win a major final? Only time will tell but the semi-final and final are being played on home soil, another Wembley triumph is possible but favourites, really?

Other Contenders

alemanha-holanda-euro-20112019

This is an open tournament and the side that hits form at the right time could well become champions of Europe. Germany have had a rough time of it in the last couple of years with a disastrous defence of their World Cup and relegation in the Nations League. They have shown signs of coming back to their best though as they won their qualifying group ahead of the Netherlands. They should be in contention for this title.

The same can be said of the Netherlands and Italy, both of who have had some time in the wilderness but had good qualifying campaigns, particularly the latter who won all their qualifying fixtures. This looks like being an exciting tournament. Our team of experts can't wait for it all to begin and will be providing you with expert tips throughout the whole month.
