The Women's Euro 2017 is here!
You thought you could not enjoy football this summer? Do not panic, the Women's Euro 2017 edition will be held from 16 July to 6 August in the Netherlands. This competition, which gained notoriety over the years, will bring together the best European teams of the female football scene. We will be able to find nations like Germany, Sweden and of course France.
For the first time in its history, the competition will see 16 teams (12 in previous editions) compete for the trophy. 46 countries took part in the qualifying stages which began in April 2015 to break down the 15 vacant places to play in this competition. It is therefore not surprising that we will meet the big nations such as Germany, Sweden, England and France. However, new teams will appear in the spotlight, notably Scotland, Portugal, Switzerland, Belgium and Austria, who will discover the atmosphere of this European competition.
The operation of this Euro 2017 is very simple, the 16 teams are divided into 4 pools of 4 at the end of which the two best formations of each group are qualified for the quarterfinals. Then come the semi-finals and then the final. An important point is that there will be no match for 3rd place since the teams defeated in the semi-finals will automatically be awarded a bronze medal.
The forces involved
Group A: Netherlands, Norway, Denmark, Belgium
The host country did not receive a lucky draw for this competition, including Norway and Denmark in their pool. With two teams that have managed to climb into the semi-finals of the last Euro, the Dutch will have a lot to do to shine before their public in this competition. This group promises exciting matches, including an exciting derby of the Benelux between the Netherlands and Belgium. Finalists in 2013, the Norwegians will aim for the top of this group and, at least, the semi-finals. A victory for Norway in this Euro is proposed at 16/1 on Bet365.
Group B: Germany, Sweden, Italy, Russia
Group B is not outdone either and seems to be the strongest group in this competition. Germany and Sweden will aim for the first two places. Italy and Russia still seem too weak to compete against the first and fourth European nation in the FIFA rankings. Germany, with eight successes in the European Cup (including five consecutive since 1997) is favourites in this group and is expected to win first place. The German rating is at 2/1.
Group C: France, Iceland, Austria, Switzerland
For its part, France, which is participating in their 6th Euro, has inherited a group within its reach even if it will have to get rid of Iceland, a tough opponent and full of sacrifice. Behind Austria and Switzerland will discover this competition for the first time and could benefit from the effect of surprise to try a nice shot. France should take the lead in this group without too many difficulties. A coronation of the team of France is proposed at 11/4 in Bet365.
Group D: England, Scotland, Spain, Portugal
Group D will also offer matches with strong rivalries, notably between England and Scotland but also with Spain and Portugal. If England think they are a step above the other teams, they will have to be careful of the other teams that will be keen to qualify for the finals. Spain still seem to be in pole position to clinch the second qualifying ticket for the playoffs.
