Favorites To Win The Euro 2020- Our Top 5 Picks
With the UEFA Euro 2020 and the international break in the hot mode, it’s not late to start looking for the next favorites to win in the world football. Qualifications for 2020 Euro Championships are heating up and will soar even more during the forthcoming international break. Belgium, England and Spain are seen capable of booking their position at the summer tournament in these upcoming fixtures. So will we witness a repeat of 2016 or will the giants from Europe regain their form in 2020? Let’s see who the favorites are to raise the European Championship this time. In no particular order, OddsMax (A Popular Football Odds Website) has our favorite 5 to win the Euro 2020 for you:
France has a troop of starlets with them but Mbappe showed his potential with 4 goals and great performance at 2018 World Cup. His skills for a goal, intelligence and speed might prove to be a serious threat to the competitors. So, Les Blues will be looking forward to prove that last year was no fluke for them and they actually have that strength. The defeat they faced at the Nations League to Netherlands has raised eyebrows but we are sure they will be in the top positions for sure.
There are only a few teams that can boast of a consistent record and one among them is Germany that has reached the final stages of the major tournaments. The team has made success to the semi final stage for 6 competitions before their group stage exit at 2018 World Cup and National League.
So the Germans are presently in the middle of a transitional period- having seen the stalwarts like Jerome Boateng, Thomas Muller and Mats Hummels going out of the international scene.
They had to settle at the third place at Russia 2018 after being defeated by France in semi finals. Their quest for the first major trophy still goes on this time. Though some of the members of the team’s older generation are now starting to age but you will see a lot of action coming from Kevin De Bruyne, Thibaut Courtois, Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku.
Yes, you read it right “ENGLAND”, they are the new hot now. Gareth Southgate has actually got the feel good factor back. After getting into the semi finals of the World Cup last summer, the team has reached UEFA Nations League finals and even stuck 5 apiece, which is surely their toughest opponents of Euro 2020. So after years of saying that “it’s coming”, we may hope that they would actually take it this time!
We have seen flattering performance from La Roja at 3 major tournaments since 2012, with a World Cup success splitting the triumphs. But now Spain looks back on track again with 6 wins, helping them to take control of the Group F. The troop of stylish, young players seems to be going great this time. Also, Captain Sergio Ramos is at the very crucial stage of his career and will try his best to steer them through the sad going of Luis Enrique.
So, these are our top 5 favorites for the Euro 2020. Let us know which other team you think will make it to the top this time.
