Below, we have compiled all the top bookmakers’ latest odds for the leading contenders in the tournament. The odds for England and Belgium seem to be almost the same, with only slight differences. Keep in mind that these odds are valid when the article is published. In time some odds may change, and there is a year before the event starts so that the odds might get lower. If you are sure in your prediction, take your chances and place the wager now, but if you aren’t sure, you could wait a little more.
Portugal’s only loss since the start of 2020 was a 1-0 setback to France in a November Nations League match. It might be an even better team than the one that won Euro 2016, with young players like Bruno Fernandes, Diogo Jota and Ruben Dias joining the nucleus of that team. Fernandes was third in the Premier League with 18 goals for Manchester United, and Jota has 25 goals over the past three seasons in the Premier League. Bernardo Silva and 21-year-old Joao Felix are also dangerous attacking options, and Portugal’s defense has not allowed a goal in its past three matches.
Before Euro 2016 UEFA decided to expand the competition to 24 teams, split into six groups of four. Unfortunately that format does not a simple passage to the knockout rounds make, so in addition to the top two from each of the groups an additional four teams, who finished third in their group with the best record, will be added to bring up the numbers.
Half of the groups have completed their fixtures which means the equation for qualification is becoming clearer. Let’s dive into the groups and work out what’s what.
Out of all of the teams we have covered through these euro 2021 tips, France is undoubtedly the favourite. After all, when you consider the fact that France managed to win the previous World Cup, it is obvious that they are a team with talented players. To go hand in hand with the fact that the team is loaded with talented football players, they are also a team full of courage, and they are clearly able to perform on the big stage.
The Red Devils are the current No.1 team in the world, according to the FIFA rankings, and with the talent Roberto Martinez has in his squad, this could finally be the year Belgium end their trophy drought. In goal, Belgium have the Real Madrid shot-stopper Courtois, in midfield the key man is De Bruyne, while up-front Lukaku will be tasked with scoring the goals. There is some concern over Belgium’s aging defence, which includes just two players under the age of 25.
The oddsmakers deiced that the most probable winner of the Euro 2021 is England from the group D. It’s not surprising considering they reached the semi-finals stage during the 2018 World Cup. Another factor to consider is that if they play in Group D against a play-off winner, Czech Republik, and Croatia. They would most likely play more than half their group matches at Wembley Stadium, which gives them the home advantage over the other teams in the group.
The Germans have plenty of players who can cause problems for opposing defenders. Muller runs the show and is one of the most creative attackers in the world. He led the Bundesliga with 19 assists and scored 11 times for league champion Bayern Munich. Kroos, who had 10 assists for Real Madrid, holds down the middle along with Ilkay Gundogan. Kroos is a precise passer, especially on set pieces, and Gundogan led Premier League champion Manchester City with 13 goals. They have seven goals between them in 16 combined international games.
Germany is 10-5-3 all-time against Portugal, and outgoing manager Joachim Low is trying to find the right attackers from among Timo Werner and Kai Havertz, Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane. Gnabry has nine goals in 10 matches with the national team in 2021, while Werner and Havertz combined for 17 goals and 17 assists during Chelsea’s Champions League-winning season. Antonio Rudiger also had a key role on that Chelsea team, and he teams with veteran Mats Hummels to provide solid defense in front of world-class goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.
Up until recent times, we would not have considered it possible for England to be competing for major titles. However, given that they managed to make the semi-final of the last World Cup, it is impossible to write England off these days. As many of you may know, England is a very young team, but with youth comes courage and fearlessness, which is certainly what England has displayed in their recent international games.
Germany may have lost some of their legends that helped them to win the World Cup in 2012, but they are still a formidable team. The international squad has a terrific manager, and they have become renowned for playing some truly magnificent football. Interestingly, Germany has been drawn in a group that consists of themselves, France, and Portugal, which means that one of these favourites will be going home early.
However, behind them, all three teams will fancy their chances of qualifying and giving the bigger nations something to think about in the knockout phase. Wales national football team went to the semi-finals of Euro 2016, but such is the strength of this group, it would be no surprise to see them finish bottom and not make the knockout phase at all.
