England Favourites In Euro 2020 Odds
A year on from its originally scheduled date, it seems that the European Championships will finally be contested the summer of 2021, with Portugal 14/1 shots in the Euro 2020 odds to retain the trophy they lifted in France in 2016, writes Nick Dorrington.
Gareth Southgate’s England figure as 11/2 co-favourites in the betting with Belgium and France.
Euro 2020 was postponed and rescheduled and if all goes to plan will now take place between 11th June and 11 July 2021. It remains to be seen if the original plan of hosting matches across 12 cities in 12 different countries will hold.
There are also some doubts over the likely condition of the participating players. They are certainly unlikely to arrive at the tournament at peak fitness on the back of a shortened pre-season and the condensed 2020-21 season schedule across the majority of European leagues.
That may well result in cautious and defensive football from teams afraid to open up and test the physical limits of their players, but could also serve to widen the pool of potential winners within the 24 qualified teams, which include debutants Finland and North Macedonia. The latter were beneficiaries of the UEFA Nations League path to qualification, as were Scotland, who will compete in their first major international tournament since 1998.
Belgium are early co-favourites in the Euro 2020 odds despite the fact they have never before lifted a major international trophy. They dominated their qualification group, winning all 10 of their matches. After reaching the Euro quarter-finals in 2016 and then the semi-final of the World Cup in 2018, can they go one better once again in 2021?
France are probably the most formidable obstacle in the way of any potential winner. They were losing finalists to Portugal last time out and followed that up with success at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. They may not always play the most thrilling football, but their current talent pool is arguably the strongest in the world. With the game’s outstanding striker in Kylian Mbappe, they are as good a bet as any to right the wrong of 2016 and lift the trophy.
France form part of a very tasty looking Group F, which also features holders Portugal and another of the assumed favourites in the betting, Germany. Luckily for those three, not only do the top two in each group progress to the last 16, but also the four best third-placed teams across the six groups. So while an early elimination is still possible, there is a little more margin for error.
Portugal have had a lot of young attacking talent arrive on the scene since their success in 2016. A successful defence of their trophy may depend on whether coach Fernando Santos can find an adequate equilibrium between making the most of that talent whilst maintaining the defensive solidity on which that previous triumph, the country’s first-ever major international trophy, was built.
England, Netherlands and Spain are also amongst the early favourites in the Euro 2020 betting. All of them could potentially go all the way if things fall right for them, but there are also some doubts surrounding them.
England are a potent force in transitional phases of play but there are some question marks elsewhere for which Southgate will have to find solutions. Spain, winners in 2012, haven’t been at all convincing recently in the midst of a somewhat awkward generational changeover. It remains to be seen whether Netherlands will retain their effective counter-attacking play style now that the less flexible Frank de Boer has replaced Ronald Koeman as head coach.
Italy have strung together a good run of results since Roberto Mancini took over in 2018, albeit largely against understrength opposition, and have some interesting younger players coming through. The extra year of maturation time is likely to make them a better team than they would have been had the tournament been played in 2020 as scheduled, but a run to the final four would represent a very good return for them.
Croatia and Denmark are probably rightly thought to be the most likely dark horses, although progression to the latter stages is a more achievable goal than outright success. Switzerland aren’t rated particularly highly by the popular UK bookmakers but might also be a side capable of reaching the quarter-finals.
Wales made it all the way through to the last four in 2016, topping their group ahead of England and then surprising Belgium en route to a semi-final defeat to Portugal. A repeat run seems fairly unlikely this time around, although it must also be noted that they had won just once in seven matches prior to the 2016 tournament only to turn the form book upside down once there. So they could defy their Euro 2020 odds.
Debutants Finland and North Macedonia would likely just be happy to make it out of their respective groups and that appears not to be an easy task for either of them.
