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 @ 13/2
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 @ 13/4
Les Bleus secured a crucial 1-0 success versus Germany in Munich in the so-called group of death after Lucas Hernandez’s cross was turned into his own net by Mats Hummels.
Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema both had breakaway goals chalked off for offside as the World Cup winners threatened on the counter-attack, with Paul Pogba impressing in midfield alongside the ever-industrious N’Golo Kante.
“We played a great game against very good opponents,” Didier Deschamps told M6. “I knew my players would be ready and we were up for the fight. It was a strong match with quality and talent.”
3 ENGLAND @ 13/2
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 ITALY @ 11/2
The Azzurri kicked off the tournament with an ultra-impressive 3-0 drubbing of Turkey and then brushed aside Switzerland by the same scoreline, again playing with incredible energy and enthusiasm.
Ciro Immobile and Lorenzo Insigne look full of confidence up front and Italy are now on a 10-match winning run, with 31 goals scored in those games and none conceded!
Roberto Mancini said: “I’ve been fortunate in that I have had some very good players who like playing the game, they enjoy being out there and like taking risks.”
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 continue to climb up our rankings.
5 SPAIN @ 8/1
La Roja let favourite backers down when drawing with Sweden but had 85 per cent possession, 17 attempts on goal and some outstanding chances to break the deadlock during a 0-0 stalemate, so we’re not ready to downgrade them too much.
Head coach Luis Enrique said: “We were by far the better team. The opposition tried to hang back, we completely controlled the game and tried to create as many chances as possible. We had sufficient chances to win the game.”
Alvaro Morata was the main culprit for missing opportunities but Gerard Moreno looked lively when coming off the bench and could be the answer up front.
6 PORTUGAL @ 7/1
The defending champions took a long time to wear down Hungary in Budapest and there was more than a hint of good fortune about their 84th-minute opener as well, with Raphael Guerreiro’s shot taking a wicked deflection.
However, Cristiano Ronaldo then clinically converted a penalty and added a sublime third in the closing stages, becoming the record scorer in European Championship history as his late double took him to 11 overall, now clear of Michel Platini on nine.
Diogo Jota and Bruno Fernandes looked lively and Fernando Santos said: “It’s difficult to get goals, it is not an easy task, but I think we played well, it was more than a fair win.”
7 GERMANY @ 10/1
Die Mannschaft have work to do in Group F after going down 1-0 to France in Munich, where Thomas Muller, Ilkay Gundogan and Serge Gnabry had half-chances to equalise but Les Bleus were worthy winners.
Joshua Kimmich commented: “We were not the worst team. We dominated the match and conceded a stupid goal to fall behind. I think a draw would have been deserved.”
We weren’t impressed by Germany, though, as the World Cup flops struggled to create clear-cut chances and often seemed short of pace – which was certainly evident at the back as Kylian Mbappe threatened to embarrass Hummels in particular.
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 WALES @ 80/1
Following a 1-1 draw with Switzerland, the Dragons overcame a hostile crowd to beat Turkey 2-0 in a very encouraging manner.
Aaron Ramsey and Connor Roberts scored at the end of each half and Wales created numerous other chances, including a Gareth Bale penalty miss.
“We’re in a fantastic position now,” beamed Bale, who provided a superb pass for Ramsey’s opener, and the surprise Euro 2016 semi-finalists look ready to upset the odds again.
