Euro 2024 match predictions 12/07/2024

Euro 2024 is well underway now with every nation having played at least once. We’ve seen wonder goals, shocking mistakes and some shocks along the way. Now though, qualification and elimination is very much on the radar. Things have just got very real.
Let’s run through our Euro 2024 predictions for all the upcoming games.

Euro 2024 group predictions

Here are our group summaries and predictions for the Euro 2024 group stage.

* nation qualified via playoffs.

Group A Predictions

Germany, Scotland, Hungary, Switzerland
The main story in Group A is, of course, the host nation of Germany. Their form had been tragic for a while, but, in the typical fashion of coming good at the right time, they look like they might just be starting to click whilst the home crowd can make or break a campaign; that’s something we’ve seen to be true at AFCON earlier in 2024.
Germany will expect to top this group. Beyond them, it’s a free-for-all event, meaning Scotland, Hungary, and Switzerland might all fancy their chances of making the next round.

Group B Predictions

Spain, Croatia, Italy, Albania
There are two football superpowers in this group, Spain and Italy, which are the nations that draw the eye. Neither has hit the heights in recent years, though, despite going deep in the Nations League and reaching these finals; Spain eased to the top spot in a pretty light group, whilst Italy had to settle for the second spot in qualifying.
Croatia will pose a big threat to causing upsets, too. Interestingly, Croatia actually joined Spain and Italy to make it a first, second and third-placed finish in the latest Nations League. Even if the others aren’t at their best, you’d expect Albania to be making a quick exit from Germany come June!

Predicted Standings

  • Spain
  • Italy
  • Croatia
  • Albania

Group C Predictions

Slovenia, Denmark, Serbia, England
Group C contains one of the favourites to lift the European Championship title in the shape of England, and it’s fair that the grouping has been rather kind to Gareth Southgate’s men. Denmark are likely to be the biggest threat to them in this Group, and whilst the Danes have a decent head-to-head record against England, it’s hard to imagine them toppling a Three Lions side with the likes of Harry Kane, Phil Foden and Jude Bellingham in the attacking ranks.
That will likely leave Slovenia and Serbia battling it out, hoping to secure one of the third-place qualifying spots.

Predicted Standings

  • England
  • Denmark
  • Slovenia
  • Serbia

Group D Predictions

Poland*, Netherlands, Austria, France
From one favourite in England, we now switch to Group D and another of the big picks to go all the way in Germany this summer as France enter the fray. The French will feel their group is tougher than that of Group C, with a Netherlands side boasting the likes of Virgil van Dijk joining them.
However, a side spearheaded by Kylian Mbappe, who is probably the best player in the world right now, won’t fear anyone. Poland earned their place in this group via the playoffs, and Austria will be highly unfancied.

Predicted Standings

  • France
  • Netherlands
  • Poland
  • Austria

Group E Predictions

Belgium, Slovakia, Romania, Ukraine*
Belgium will be the team to beat here despite their ‘Golden Generation’ no longer being a thing. The likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku and Jeremy Doku remain, though, so they’ll have their moments against anyone in world football.
Ukraine will have plenty of neutrals on their side, as they did in the last major tournament after making it to Germany via the playoffs, whilst Slovakia and Romania round out the group. Like Group A, the top spot feels obvious, with a three-way fight out underneath them for the extra one or two qualifying places.

Predicted Standings

  • Belgium
  • Ukraine
  • Slovakia
  • Romania

Group F Predictions

Turkey, Georgia*, Portugal, Czech Republic
Last but not least, we have Group F, and it’s a group from which we’re expecting one of the third-place qualifiers to come. Georgia had to navigate the playoffs to reach these championships, and its reward for that effort was to land in a highly competitive group.
Portugal, who were the only team to qualify with a 100% record, will be the pick to advance with a host of talent in their squad – probably including Cristiano Ronaldo for ‘one last dance’ at a major tournament – but Turkey are no mugs either. The Czech Republic stuttered to qualification in a pretty weak group, but they’ll fancy their chances against most sides if they can bring their A-game.

Predicted Standings

  • Portugal
  • Czech Republic
  • Turkey
  • Georgia

Top Goalscorer

Kylian Mbappe

Club football in Europe might be at the business end right now, but that doesn’t mean European Championship 2024 outright bets cannot be placed already, with most major bookies already offering markets.

Euro 2024 Winner

Right now, England are heading to Germany as favourites to lift the trophy. That’s perhaps an understandable view from the bookies when you consider their history at recent major tournaments and the quality Southgate has at his disposal.
Ironically, many England fans would cite Southgate as a handcuff on that talent, which might explain why the ‘been there and done it’ French aren’t far behind in the odds. They eliminated England in Qatar and reached the World Cup final.
Mbappe is obviously one to watch, too. The odds for Germany, Portugal, and Spain to come into contention for the crown then slightly lengthen before leaping to double-digit odds for Belgium and Italy, who still have plenty to prove to their current generation.
  • England 10/3
  • France 7/2
  • Germany 6/1
  • Spain 8/1
  • Portugal 8/1

What Are The Pundits Saying?

Jose Mourinho – A Tournament Of Sadness

Jose Mourinho backed one of three nations to win the European Championship prior to the tournament getting underway with England, France and his native Portugal his picks. Since the tournament has began, he’s spoken glowingly about some of the players taking to the pitch too with senior pros Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Cristiano Ronaldo filling “The Special One” with “sadness” as the trio look likely to feature at a major tournament for the final time.

Ian Wright – Saka The Key

Ian Wright has just bid an emotional farewell to BBC’s Match of the Day, but he will be a regular on our screens throughout the summer. As is often the case with the former Arsenal man, he’s perhaps guilty of letting his heart rule his head. Wright acknowledged France as favourites but then backed England to find a way, suggesting Euro 2024 could be their “last go at it” in terms of winning a tournament. Wright has stuck to that stance since the tournament got underway too with Bukayo Saka being lauded as “undroppable”.

Gary Neville – England Balance Is Off

Gary Neville has been to major tournaments as a pundit, player, and coach, and he believes England have what it takes to go all the way in Germany this year. He tips them to win, with Jude Bellingham and Phil Foden picked out as the key players. Despite the optimism, Neville does hold some concerns with the Three Lions after their opening match. Specifically, he’s questioned an imbalance in the midfield and has urged Southgate to drop Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Roy Keane – Favouring Germany

If Wrighty and Neville were bigging up England’s chances, Roy Keane’s dry humour would put their feet back on the ground. Keane has ridiculed the idea that England will ease into the latter stages, pointing out what could turn into a tough run to the final, stating, “Jesus Christ, they haven’t won anything.” Keane is putting his money on Germany. Scotland, meanwhile, Keane believes, will crash out in the group stages and he was more than happy to stick the boot into the Scots after their opening match labelling the two nations as “chalk and cheese”.

Jamie Carragher – What Constitutes a Failure?

For a long time, Jamie Carragher had been rather non-committal on who he thought would win Euro 2024 but has previously suggested that England should be making the final as a minimum requirement, suggesting anything less will be a “failure”. Should his latest predictions, which he made with the Telegraph, come true, then failure is inevitable, as he tips England to crash out at the semi-final stage. Carra predicts a Germany vs France final, with France eventually winning. Carragher’s view on England not winning the tournament hasn’t changed either with the former Liverpool man dubious of their defensive depth and also holds concerns over Harry Kane’s role in the team.

Joe Cole – A Positive View of Potential Penalties

Three Lions supporters shouldn’t get too triggered by Keane’s negative take. Joe Cole is another ex-England international backing the Three Lions to go all the way this summer. Cole believes England is just the luck of the “Gods” away from clinching a major trophy, whilst the former Chelsea man also cited his confidence in England’s squad to win a penalty shootout should there be one in Germany.

Don Hutchison – France Are The Team To Beat

Former Scotland midfielder Don Hutchison has also had his say on the upcoming tournament. Speaking on the Gab & Jules podcast operated by ESPN, Hutchison labelled France his favourites, with England second. He also threw Belgium in the mix, stating they have to come good “at some point.” Maybe though we shouldn’t read too much into Hutchison’s takes though; the former Everton player also backed Scotland, a nation he represented 26 times, to pose a threat to Germany on the opening night of Euro 2024. They lost 5-1.

Jurgen Klinsmann – Who Has A Big Shot?

It might surprise a few people, but former Germany international and USA manager Jurgen Klinsmann is backing Gareth Southgate’s men having a “big shot” owing to their “maturity” and “high quality whilst he’s also claimed he “sees a lot of himself in Harry Kane”. It wasn’t all positives from the former Spurs forward, though; he couldn’t resist having a dig at England, suggesting it was “about time” they delivered on the big stage.

Frank Leboeuf – Shared Favourites

Whilst working on ESPN FC, France’s World Cup-winning centre-back Frank Leboeuf laughed off talk of England being better than his homeland, questioning how many times England has been dubbed favourites for a major tournament since 1966. However, he quickly moved on from that light-hearted exchange to pool the Three Lions and France as the most likely victors in Germany. There was a word of caution, though, as he warned that losing “one top player” to injury could scupper both nations’ hopes.

Who is hosting Euro 2024?

The 2024 European Championships will be played in Germany. Germany has appeared in each of the last 13 European Championships, winning the competition on three previous occasions, and this is their second time hosting the competition.

Euro 2024: Markets & Odds

euro 2024

Outright Winner

The most popular market for Euro 2024 from now until the tournament begins is the outright ‘to win’ market. There, you pick the winner of the championship. Note that you will have to place the bet before the event starts, and that’s when you will get the best odds. As each contestant is disqualified, your odds will get lower.

Top 4 to Finish

Reaching the semi-finals of this prestigious tournament is an excellent achievement. You need to wager on whether a team will reach that stage. The odds provided are similar to the outright winner odds, but since there are four places to fill, you have a bigger chance of guessing.

To Qualify Past Group Stage

The European Championship begins with a group stage. You have to wager whether a team will qualify past the group stage or not. Popular teams and recent winners, such as England, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Belgium, and Portugal, are favoured in this category.

Top Goalscorer

The goalscorer markets are famous in all football competitions, which will be the case for Euros 2024, too. This market can be difficult to predict with so much time left before the event starts, but as we get closer to the end of the qualifying process, we have more of an idea of which teams will make the trip to Germany and the players that have been scoring the most goals during the qualifiers.

Euro 2024: Special Markets

If you want to do something different, you can try betting on some of the unique markets related to the event. There are many different possible markets, and the most popular ones are the following.

Player of the Tournament

One of the most anticipated betting markets and prizes in Euro 2024 will be the ‘Player of the Tournament’ award. Mbappe is the standout for this honour, but the likes of Harry Kane and Jude Bellingham of England could also feature. Players such as Barcelona’s youngster Lamine Yamal might fancy a breakout tournament, too.

Most yellow/red cards

This market is for betting on which players you think will be shown a yellow or red card during the match. Often, players in defence or midfield pick up yellow cards for a late tackle or persistent fouling, and you should check their disciplinary record before placing any bets. The other instant where yellow and red cards might be more common is in a game between two rivals, such as England vs. Germany.

Which Group Will Produce the Most Goals?

At first, the teams are put into groups that play against each other. This type of bet refers to which of the groups would score the most goals, and it’s settled at the end of the group stage. Coral was one of the bookies that offered this market during the last European Championship, and we expect that many would follow next year as well.

What are the most popular betting markets?

Match Result

The most common market for wagering on, in any event, is the match result. If you place a bet on this type of market, you choose between three outcomes:

  • Home Win
  • Draw
  • Away Win

If the teams are unevenly matched, the odds may not be favourable in this market, but if you decide to include this bet in an Acca, then your potential profits can go up.

Total Goals

The total goals market is also called the over/under market. There can be several markets in this category, such as Over/Under 2.5, which means that you wager on the fact that the total goals scored in this match by both teams would be at least three (over 2.5 goals) or fewer than three (under 2.5 goals).

Correct Score

This is another famous market for football events where you predict the match’s final score. This outcome is tough to predict but often offers the best odds, so there is a risk to the reward.

Other Popular Markets

Since there are hundreds of markets available for football matches, we can’t list all of them, but we will mention some other markets you could bet on during the Euro 2021.

  • Double Chance
  • Anytime Goalscorer
  • Winning Margin
  • Both teams to Score
  • Half/Full time
  • Draw No Bet
  • Handicap
