Euro 2020 winner predictions: Favourites on top so far

We’re monitoring the Euro 2020 winner odds throughout the tournament and will be regularly updating our power rankings for the top teams.

The competition is being staged in 11 different cities across Europe, with the semi-finals and final to be held at Wembley, concluding on July 11.

Here are our Euro 2020 predictions regarding which nations can challenge for outright glory:

1 BELGIUM @ 11/2

The Red Devils powered to a 3-0 win over Russia in Saint Petersburg in their Group B opener, with a brace from Romelu Lukaku either side of Thomas Meunier’s opportunist strike giving them victory in a match they dominated throughout.

“The performance is very pleasing,” beamed Roberto Martinez. “It is never easy to start a tournament of this magnitude and we looked a team very concentrated for 90 minutes. We kept a clean sheet in a very good way and the win will allow us to grow into the tournament.”

Belgium only introduced Eden Hazard late on and still have Kevin De Bruyne and Axel Witsel to come back from injury, so things are looking good a side which finished third at the 2018 World Cup.

2 FRANCE @ 4/1

Les Bleus were runners-up in the last renewal of this competition and went on to go one better at the 2018 World Cup, with Didier Deschamps leading a disciplined outfit to success.

Established stars such as Antoine Griezmann, Paul Pogba and Raphael Varane are still under 30 and at their peak while prodigious youngster Kylian Mbappe looks capable of taking this tournament by storm.

Qualifying went relatively smoothly, with eight wins and a draw from 10 games, while Les Bleus have looked ominously impressive in 3-0 warm-up wins over Wales and Bulgaria.

The only concern is where they will sit in the draw after facing Portugal and Germany in a tough Group F campaign.

3 ENGLAND @ 11/2

The Three Lions put in a more convincing display than the scoreline suggests when beating main Group D rivals Croatia 1-0 thanks to Raheem Sterling’s 57th-minute effort.

Phil Foden had earlier hit the post while Jordan Pickford was rarely tested and Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips stamped his presence on the game with a commanding man-of-the match display.

“I was really pleased with the way we settled so quickly,” beamed Gareth Southgate. “With and without the ball, they were composed, carried out what we wanted to do in terms of pressing brilliantly.”

4 SPAIN @ 8/1

La Roja have faltered at three straight major tournaments since completing back-to-back wins in this competition in 2012, with a World Cup victory splitting those triumphs.

Spain looked back on track when going unbeaten through their qualifying pool, though, posting eight wins and away draws against Norway and Sweden.

November’s 6-0 Nations League rout of Germany in Seville showed just what the current squad are capable of and they should cruise through a safe-looking Group E.

Being without inspirational defender Sergio Ramos is a blow and a Covid-19 scare for stand-in skipper Sergio Busquets isn’t helpful, but Luis Enrique should have time to work around those issues.

5 PORTUGAL @ 8/1

The defending champions only finished second in their qualifying group behind Ukraine but do have a fine record in this tournament, having also been runners-up in 2004 and semi-finalists in 2012.

Any fears of Cristiano Ronaldo being over the hill at 36 have been eased by his Serie A-leading 29 goals in Italy’s top flight for Juventus last season.

Manchester United goal machine Bruno Fernandes, Manchester City playmaker Bernardo Silva, Liverpool recruit Diogo Jota and Atletico Madrid’s big-money buy Joao Felix add to the attacking options, although drawing France and Germany in Group F is obviously a concern.

6 ITALY @ 6/1

The Azzurri kicked off the tournament with an ultra-impressive 3-0 drubbing of Turkey, with match stats of 63 per cent possession and 24 attempts on goal highlighting their dominance.

Italy received a helping hand via Merih Demiral’s own goal early in the second half, Ciro Immobile then pounced on a poor parry by Ugurcan Cakir and influential playmaker Lorenzo Insigne wrapped up a one-sided triumph.

“It was a wonderful night,” beamed Roberto Mancini. “I’m delighted with the performance. We produced a very good display and we really didn’t afford them many opportunities at all.”

Failing to qualify for the World Cup was seen as a national disaster, so the Azzurri are clearly fired up to make amends with a first European Championship success since 1968 and could easily have climbed up more than one spot in our rankings.

7 GERMANY @ 9/1

Die Mannschaft blotted their copybook when finishing bottom of their World Cup group but will be determined to send Joachim Low out on a high note after 15 years in charge.

Seven wins from eight matches in qualifying was a solid effort, even if the Netherlands did avenge a 3-2 Amsterdam defeat with a 4-2 Hamburg success.

There have since been some worrying blips, notably a 6-0 thrashing by Spain in the Nations League and a shock 2-1 loss to North Macedonia in their World Cup pool on home turf.

However, history dictates that Germany must be respected in this event, having been crowned champions three times and reaching the semis on nine occasions, even if they are in a tough Group F with France and Portugal.

8 NETHERLANDS @ 14/1

Holland highlighted both their good and bad points when shading Ukraine 3-2 in an Amsterdam thriller thanks to a dramatic late header from Denzel Dumfries.

Georginio Wijnaldum and Wout Weghorst had earlier put this exciting Dutch outfit in charge but Andriy Yarmolenko and Roman Yaremchuk threatened to spoil the party at Johan Cruyff Arena.

Frank De Boer commented: “You know the opposition will get opportunities but you hope it will not be through your own fault. Let’s say that this will not happen again.”

9 CROATIA @ 50/1

The Blazers struggled to match England’s intensity at a sweltering Wembley when going down 1-0 but will still hope to advance from Group D ahead of Czech Republic and Scotland.

“In attack, we didn’t show much quality but we were playing against England, who are a terrific team,” said head coach Zlatko Dalic. “We were their equal most of the time. This is encouraging to me and it will be better in the forthcoming matches.”

Many punters will still see Croatia as a value option, judged on their Russia 2018 exploits when only losing out to France in the final, but their big guns do appear to have aged since then.

10 SWITZERLAND @ 66/1

The Swiss were the better team for most of their 1-1 draw with Wales, when Breel Embolo nodded in Xherdan Shaqiri’s corner only for Kieffer Moore’s precise glancing header on 74 minutes to level things up.

Head coach Vladimir Petkovic said: “We didn’t take advantage of the opportunities we had and we have to be better in the next two matches. If we create opportunities in those games, we have to be more clinical.”
