Euro 2020 winner odds: England second favourites to win delayed finals
We have picked out five teams expected to challenge at this summer’s delayed Euro 2020 tournament which starts a year later than scheduled because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The tournament gets under way on Friday with 11 cities hosting 51 games which culminate in the final at Wembley Stadium on July 11.
England sailed through their group with seven wins from eight games and are 5/1 second favourites in the Euro 2020 winner odds to win their first trophy since the 1966 World Cup.
Gareth Southgate’s side reached the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup and cruised through an easy Euro 2020 qualifying campaign during which their only defeat came against the Czech Republic, one of the teams they will face in the group stage.
England are 2/5 favourites to finish top of Group A which also includes Croatia, who denied the Three Lions a place in the World Cup final with an extra-time victory in Russia three years ago, and Scotland.
Third in their Nations League group on the back of defeats by Denmark and Belgium, England won their first three World Cup qualifiers, including a 2-1 victory over main rivals Poland, so they are in pole position to make it to Qatar but can they produce it on the big stage?
World champions France are in the group of death with Germany and holders Portugal but are 4/1 favourites to win the tournament for a third time and a first since 2000.
Didier Deschamps’ side have an excellent record against Germany since 2015 (W3 D2 L0) and they took four points off Portugal in the group stage of the latest Nations League campaign.
They have quality running right the way through the team and as long as they can get past the group stage, they should be a formidable force in the knockout phase.
The world’s top-ranked team were one of two countries to stroll through qualifying with a 100% record and they will once again be up against Russia at the Euros, along with Finland and Denmark in what looks like an easy ride compared with France.

Belgiu are 13/2 in the Euro 2020 winner odds having finished third at the last World Cup, but with Kevin De Bruyne having undergone successful surgery to repair a ractured nose and eye socket and Eden Hazard still not ready to start a game, their odds have dipped slightly.
Joachim Low starts his final campaign as Germany head coach hoping to improve on a disastrous World Cup in which they finished bottom of their group.
In the autumn they were thumped 6-0 by Spain in the Nations League, lost at home to North Macedonia in a World Cup qualifier at the end of March and drew 1-1 with Denmark in a friendly.
That does not bode well but Germany are available at 8/1 in the Euro 2020 winner odds to lift the trophy for a fourth time.
The two-time winners raced through their group unbeaten with eight victories and two draws, taking four points off Sweden, the team they will meet once again at the Euro 2020 finals.
Luis Enrique’s men demolished Germany to qualify for the Nations League finals and they top their World Cup qualification group despite a 1-1 draw with Greece in their opener, so they will hope to improve on their disappointing performance in Russia where they were eliminated by the hosts at the round of 16 stage.
Spain are 8/1 in the Euro 2020 winners odds to add to their 2008 and 2012 successes despite a recent Covid outbreak in the camp in which Sergio Busquets and Diego Llorente tested positive.
