Euro 2020 Predictions: Outright Winner

 

The European Championships are now less than 24 hours away and as such, we’re now close enough to the start of the action to have a good look at the outright winner market.

We’re extremely reluctant to go against what is undoubtedly an extremely talented Three Lions squad in Euro 2020 but we can’t get past France who are joint-favourites at a general 5/1 alongside England to haul the trophy aloft next month.

Didier Deschamps steered his men to World Cup glory in Russia three years ago and he has selected a similar set of players for this summer’s tournament with the useful addition up top of Karim Benzema. Indeed with a great many proven winners in this side, Les Blues are clearly the team to beat as far as we’re concerned with the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe and Benzema making up a truly terrifying front line. Equally formidable are the midfield trio of N’Golo Kante, Adrien Rabiot and Paul Pogba, therefore with match-winners everywhere on the park and little in the way of clear weaknesses, it will take someone special to stop them in their tracks.

Joint-favourites England enjoy home advantage for many of their potential games and Gareth Southgate’s men will fancy their chances, however fitness concerns surrounding Jordan Henderson and Harry Maguire will likely have a bearing on how deep into the competition the Three Lions manage and the defence may well expose the side should they make it into the latter stages of the tournament.

Belgium are expected to get through the group stages with the minimum of effort but they, like England, have less bases covered than France. Lukaku should provide the Red Devils with goals but Eden Hazard’s woes will be of concern to coach Roberto Martinez and the likes of Tony Alderweireld, Jason Denayer and Jan Vertonghen don’t inspire much in the way of confidence.

Given that they have been on the receiving end of some thrashings over the past few years – most notably their 6-0 thumping by Spain and the humiliating 2-1 defeat to North Macedonia in the qualifiers – it is perhaps a surprise to see Germany priced as 9/1 fourth-favourites with some bookmakers, therefore we’d rather back the likes of Italy or Portugal as decent value outsiders.

Two more sides are priced at under 30/1, these being Spain and the Netherlands at best odds of 19/2 and 33/2 respectively. Spain coach Luis Enrique has a young but raw side in this tournament and as such we would be surprised were they to make it even to the semi-final stage, while we don’t rate Netherlands boss Frank de Boer too highly and we expect the Dutch to make it out of their group but not too much further.
