Qualification for the Euros 2020

Euro 2020Euro 2020

Usually, the host nation would get automatic qualification, but there was no automatic qualifying spot this time around since there were 12 countries that were chosen to host matches. As a result, 55 national teams had to play in the qualifiers to earn one of the 24 spots at the tournament. Since the host cities were selected by UEFA before the qualifiers started it meant that the national teams of the host cities could fail to make it past the UEFA Euro qualifiers and into the finals.

The draw for the qualifiers took place on the 2nd of December at the Convention Centre in Dublin to see what the ten qualifying tables would be. There were five groups with five teams and five groups with 6 teams, and every team played each other once at home and once away. The qualifying process kicked off in March 2019 and ended in November of the same year. The format was pretty much the same as it has been for a long while - the top two teams from each group qualified for the Euro UEFA 2020, meaning that there were still four spots up for grabs.

The teams that failed to qualify for the groups still had a chance to qualify as one of the playoffs teams. Each of the four leagues were given one of the final four tournament spots. Then, four teams from each of the leagues that had not qualified already for the Championship finals qualified for the play-offs of each league, with the four winners of the playoffs qualifying for the draw.

Qualified Teams for Euro 2020

Of the 24 teams that have qualified, 19 of them took part in the 2016 edition. Among these teams are Italy and Belgium who both had flawless qualifiers with 10 wins from their 10 matches, defending champions Portugal, World Champions France, and Germany who have qualified for a record 13th consecutive European Championship. Macedonia and Finland will be making their debut, having never before made it to a major competition.

Scotland, one of the co-hosts, qualified for their first major tournament since 1998, while the likes of Denmark and The Netherlands return after having missed out last time around. Wales, Slovakia, Austria, and Hungary made it to successive Euros for the first time, while Greece, who won the competition in 2004, are the only former champions that missed out on qualification.

Iceland, Northern Ireland, Albania, Romania, and the Republic of Ireland failed to make it after having qualified for the 2016 event. Of the 11 hosts, seven qualified directly for the competition, while Scotland and Hungary made it via the play-offs. Azerbaijan was eliminated in the group stage, while Romania was eliminated in the play-off semi-finals.

The Venus in Use

On the 19th of September 2014, UEFA announced the 13 venues that would be hosting the matches. However, Brussels was taken off of the list because of building delays with Eurostadium. The four matches that were scheduled to take place in Brussels were allocated to Wembley Stadium, London.

There was originally going to be four games chosen to be played at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin. However, unfortunately, there will be no Euro 2020 in Dublin as UEFA stripped Dublin because they failed to guarantee that 25% of the stadium capacity would be filled with spectators.

So, the Irish team is out of the question as they failed to qualify via the play-offs. Many who made playoff predictions felt that Ireland would make it to the play-off final at least, but they put in a really drab performance against Slovakia and lost in a penalty shootout, making many predictors look foolish.

Three of the four matches that were due to be played in Dublin will now be played at the Krestovsky Stadium in St. Petersburg, while the fourth match was given to Wembley Stadium in London.

Of the eleven selected stadiums, seven of the cities and six of the countries have never hosted a European Championship match before. None of Denmark, Hungary, Russia, Scotland, or Denmark has hosted this competition before. Of the eleven venues, only two have hosted a Euro Championship game before and these are the Stadio Olimpico and the Johan Cruyff Arena. The old Wembley hosted matches in this tournament before, but the new Wembley is not classed as the same stadium.

In December 2017, it was decided that the Stadio Olimpico would host the opening game and that Italy would play in the opening match if they managed to qualify for the tournament. They managed, of course, and now they will take on Turkey in the opening game.

In the table below, you can find out information about the eleven venues that have been selected to host matches at the Euro 2020 final.

Each of the eleven cities will host three group matches and a match in the last 16 or quarter-finals. This excludes Saint Petersburg, who will host six group matches, and London, who will host two last 16 matches. Below you can find the match allocation for all of the chosen stadiums:

  • Group stage, last 16, semi-finals, and final: London
  • Group stage and quarter-finals: Munich, Baku, Saint Petersburg, and Rome
  • Group stage and last 16: Bucharest, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Budapest, Seville, and Glasgow

The Draw for the Finals

The UEFA Euro football draw took place on the 30th of November 2019 in Bucharest, Romania. All of the 24 qualified teams were drawn into six groups with four teams in each group. At the time of the draw, the path to the final was not fully complete as we did not yet know the four play-off winners. Therefore, in the draw, they were known as play-off winners A, B, C and D. All the teams were seeded according to their European Qualifiers ranking, which was based on their qualifying campaign results.

Euro 2020 Groups

Without further ado, let us take a look a closer look at the six different groups.

Group A

Group A was drawn as follows:


Wales will enter the competition without Ryan Giggs as manager as he has been charged with assault. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges, but Robert Page will be their manager for this tournament. Gareth Bale is their main man, while the delay for the tournament has allowed Aaron Ramsey and Joe Allen to return to fitness. How far can they go in this tournament? Unfortunately for Welsh fans, probably not that far.

Italy did not qualify for the World Cup in 2018 and Roberto Mancini had a big task to get his country back at the top of international football, and he has done just that. The Italian team will head into this tournament with some renewed verve, a strong defence, and a fresh attack - they certainly should not be underestimated.

Turkey probably fancies themselves to be dark horses to win Euro 2020. They go into the competition with good form, which includes a 4-2 defeat of The Netherlands in their World Cup qualifying group. They score and concede plenty of goals, so are an entertaining team to watch. Hakan Calhanoglu is their star player, but you should keep an eye on Zeki Celik, who helped Lille beat PSG to the Ligue 1 title.

Switzerland will not be an easy game for anyone, that is for sure. They have quality, which they showed in their Nations League group that contained Germany, Spain, and Ukraine. Their only win was gifted to them, but three draws in four matches against Germany and Spain is pretty impressive. They have also had a pretty solid start to their World Cup Qualifying campaign, although their 1-0 win over Lithuania was a bit underwhelming.

Group B

Group B was drawn as follows:


Belgium, to put it quite frankly, simply have not cashed in on the golden generation that they have, despite the fact that they sit at the top of the FIFA World Rankings, and have done for a while now. They easily beat Russia away and at home in their qualifying campaign for this competition, so will be confident of beating them again. Likewise, the Red Devils played Denmark twice in the UEFA Nations League and beat them on both occasions. It is really hard seeing anyone other than Belgium top this group.

Denmark did pretty well to reach ten points in their Nations League group, getting a win and a draw against England. Their World Cup qualifying campaign has got off to a flyer, albeit against easier opposition. They have scored 14 goals, which included a 4-0 win over Austria away from home. They have a number of players who play for big clubs such as Chelsea, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Leicester City, and Borussia Dortmund, so will definitely not be pushovers. To add to this, they have a home advantage in all their group games.

Finland and Russia were both in Nations League B, with the former getting 12 points and the latter 8 points. Russia, in their defence, had the harder group, but this time they are going to have home advantage in two group matches, including their game against Finland.

Despite Russia's average Nations League campaign, they were undefeated at home, so it is not wrong to consider them favourites to beat Finland. However, Final did win two away games, albeit against the struggling Irish and Bulgarian teams. They also snuck a 1-1 draw away to Ukraine thanks to a last-minute penalty. The Finns will be extra motivated due to the fact that this is their first-ever major tournament. We think they will probably play out a draw, but since both will lose to Belgium and Denmark, they will eliminate each other.

Group C

This is how Group C was drawn:


Despite their current struggles and the fact that they will be missing Virgil van Dijk in defence, the Netherlands are favourites to top their group when it comes to UEFA Euro 2020 betting. Their squad, despite being the weakest they have had in a while, is still better than their rivals in Group C.

In their Nations League A Group, they lost only one game, which was to Italy. Their only other really poor result was the 0-0 away to Bosnia and Herzegovina. They will also have home advantage for all three group matches, but some fans might be a bit concerned as to how they capitulated 4-2 to Turkey.

Ukraine got six points in their Nations League group but was relegated to League B under unfortunate circumstances. They had to forfeit their away game against the Swiss because of an outbreak of Covid. They had a very good Euro 2020 qualifying campaign, winning the group without losing and beating Portugal along the way. However, they have been a bit out of form lately, failing to win any of their three World Cup qualifiers.

Austria beat Macedonia both home and away during Euro qualifying, but that was eighteen months ago and it is clear that the Balkan side is a lot better, which can be seen from their impressive 2-1 win over Germany. Despite Austria's recent struggles, which includes a 4-0 defeat to Denmark, Austria the Euro 2020 odds suggest that Austria are favourites to finish above Macedonia.

Many will probably see Macedonia's win over Germany as a lucky one. In the last nine months, their only convincing wins were against Latvia and Liechtenstein. They had marginal wins against Kosovo, Georgia, Armenia, Israel, and Estonia. As this is their first international tournament, their motivation will be very high, but we fear that this will not be enough to help them have a successful tournament.

Group D

This is how Group D was drawn:

Czech Republic311114

England's run to the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup was ended by Croatia, but the Three Lions got a bit of revenge when they beat Croatia at Wembley in the Nations League in the 2018/19 campaign. Since then, the Balkan side has decreased in quality, losing against Slovenia and just scraping a 1-0 win against Cyprus in World Cup qualifying.

You could argue that the England squad is the strongest by some distance in the group, and having a home advantage in all three group matches is why England are favourites when it comes to Euro 2020 betting odds for topping Group D.

England should see off Scotland at Wembley, but the Scottish can certainly compete with Croatia and the Czech Republic for second place, especially since they will be playing both at Hampden Park. Scotland beat the Czech Republic home and away in their last Nations League campaign, although the Czechs had to field a team of youngsters for one of the games due to a Covid outbreak. The Scots will be extra motivated to do well since this is their first major international tournament since 1998. Another thing that goes in Scotland's favour is the fact that they have never lost a competitive game to the Croatians.

All football fans remember Croatia's run to the 2018 World Cup final, but that generation has started to decline. It is tricky to compare the Croatian's and Czech's Nations League performances as they were not in the same division. Croatia just about stayed in League A thanks to an own goal, and only picked up the solitary win against Sweden. The Czechs won their League B group easily, although they lost to Scotland.

Despite Croatia's supposedly superior squad, we would say that they have the same quality as the Czechs. It does feel strange to disregard a team that made it to the last World Cup final, but things can change quickly in football.

Group E

This is how Group E was drawn:


Despite a poor start to their World Cup qualifying campaign where they dropped points to Greece and got a late winner against Georgia, Spain is still the huge favourite to go ahead and win the group. They won their Nations League group, and they certainly have the strongest squad in this group. To add to this, they will play all of their group matches at home, which is another advantage for them.

Poland got four more points than the Swedes in the Nation League, but we could argue that this is because the Poles had an easier group. Poland has one of the best players in the world in Robert Lewandowski, but that does not automatically lead to success. People had high hopes for Poland at the 2018 World Cup, but they flopped.

This was the opposite for Sweden, who made it to the last eight for the first time in 14 years, where they were defeated 2-0 by England. We know this is not that relevant to the Euros 2020, but the point we are making is that there is a fair case for both Poland and Sweden to be runners-up.

Slovakia will more than likely finish at the bottom of the group, although they did win their Nations League B group. However, their start to World Cup qualifying has been poor despite their 2-1 win against Russia. They drew against Malta and failed to beat Cyprus. Slovakia does have a few pretty good players, but we do not see this being enough to get them past the group.

Group F

This is how Group F was drawn:


Hungary won their group in Nations League B, but that is not of much significance in a group where the other three teams performed decently well in League A. However, they have a bit of an ace up their sleeves as they are the only team in the tournament who will be playing in front of a full home crowd. This means that over 67,000 spectators will be cheering them on at the Puskás Aréna. Hungary's home advantage might help them to a shock win against Portugal or France, but it is not very likely. It is more likely that Hungary exit the tournament at the group stage.

France has a really good away record, and have won their last eight away games. This includes wins against Croatia, Sweden, and Portugal. The French are one of the world's best teams, and they are pretty consistent at the moment. Portugal has one of their best teams of all time and should beat Hungary, and they would probably be slight favourites against Germany. While many expect France to top the group, Portugal is expected by many to finish second.

Germany lost at home to Macedonia, but this does not mean that they will lose to Hungary. The Germans had a decent home record before that defeat to the Balkan side. Their draws against the Swiss and Spain might seem a bit poor, but both sides are better than Hungary. There is a chance that Germany will finish third in this group, but they should still get enough points to go through.

Postponement of Tournament

You have probably noticed that this tournament is called "Euro 2020", despite the fact that it is happening in 2021. Well, this is because it was due to take place in the summer of 2020, but because of the pandemic issue, it was not feasible to do so. Therefore, the difficult decision was made by UEFA to postpone the tournament until this year in the interest of everyone’s safety.

Free Bet Offers

The next thing that we are going to take a look at in this guide is free bets. Nowadays, most bookies will offer potential new punters free bets to try and persuade them to open an account with them. Free bets are never created equally, so you need to do a bit of searching to ensure that you get the deal available when registering with a reviewed sportsbook. You obviously do not want the scenario where you sign up with a bookie to do some Euro 2020 betting and then quickly find out that there are better welcome bonuses out there that you could have accepted.

Below you can find some of what we feel are the best bonuses on offer at this moment in time. You can use the following bonuses on whatever bonuses you like, but if you register with one of these sports betting sites when the tournament is being played, we recommend you use the free money to place some bets on the football.

N.B. Before we move on, we would just like to stress that sports betting sites are changing their bonuses constantly, meaning that there could be the chance that the bonuses you have read about in the table above do not match those available on their site. We do apologise if this is the case, but we do not have the time to constantly check for updates. We will check every so often, and if we notice a bonus is different, we will make the necessary updates.

Also, do not forget that all bonuses come with a range of T&Cs, so take a few moments to familiarise yourself with all of them before you accept any type of bonus.

Euro 2020 Tips

When it comes to betting on the Euros 2020, you can jump right and start making wagers without doing any research if you like. However, if this is your sole football betting strategy, then you are just going to end up losing more cash than you end up winning. Okay, there is a chance that you get lucky and win every so often, but you will lose more bets than you win. Below we are going to provide you with some betting tips that you would do well to remember when betting on this tournament.

Check Current Form

When you are trying to pick who will win the finals, it is vital that you pay attention to the stats that relate to the teams participating in this event. It is wise to back a team that has been in good form instead of one that has been off the boil. Each team will play a number of friendlies played before the event starts, and while the results are not that important, it is wise to follow these matches, so you get a good idea as to which players are in form. This can stand you in good stead if you are betting on markets such as goalscorer or clean sheet.

The Venues Are Important

This European Championship event is different to all the others that have come before it because there is more than one host this time around. Therefore, looking at where the games are being played during the tournament is more vital this time around than ever before. Teams that do not really stand a chance of lifting the trophy could still be worth betting on if they are playing at home.

Squad Selections

Players across Europe have been doing their best to catch the eye of their national team's manager and earn a call-up to the Euros. There will be celebrations from some players and disappointment from others, and it is vital that you look at the players that were selected for their country. Are there notable absences due to long-term injury or a manager deciding that a certain player is a surplus to requirements?

For instance, Portugal's odds of defending the title that they won in 2016 would decrease drastically if Cristiano Ronaldo was to pick up an injury. Then there is the Netherlands, who will be missing the defensive qualities of Virgil van Dijk. Likewise, if England were without Harry Kane, their chances of going deep into the tournament would diminish.

You should take a look at the number of caps that a team has because an inexperienced team will likely not go on to win the competition, although it could be a good guide for World Cup in 2022.

The Importance of the Game

You would think that every game at such a tournament would be an important one, but this is not the case. We are obviously talking about the group stage here and the last game that each team plays. For example, if Italy has already qualified after their first two matches, they might rest some key players before their final 16 game.

On the other hand, a team that has already been eliminated from the competition come their final game, might use it as an opportunity to give some of the squad players a chance to play at a major tournament. If this happens, then it will reflect on the odds that the bookies are offering.


You have to take into consideration the rivalries that exist between the teams that will face each other at the Euro 2020 Championship. For example, Portugal will place France in a group game, which will be a repeat of the final in 2016, and the French will be out for some revenge.

Also, England will take on Scotland at Wembley, and everyone knows that there is little love lost between these two teams. Then there is also Finland against Denmark, and the two Scandinavian sides will be looking for bragging rights. Also, when you look at the groups you will see that there are some matches between teams that qualified from the same group, meaning they have some recent history. This includes the likes of England against the Czech Republic, Belgium and Russia, and Spain and Sweden.


Now that we have provided you with some very useful Euro 2020 tips, we are now going to take a look at some of the latest news.

Kevin de Bruyne is a Doubt for the Tournament

Kevin de Bruyne is arguably one of the best players in the world, but there is a chance that he will not feature at the Euros 2020 as he suffered a left eye socket fracture during Manchester City's 1-0 defeat to Chelsea in the Champions League Final on the 29th of May.

The Belgian talisman has been released from the hospital, but now faces an anxious wait to see how his injury heals before he can be declared fit to play at the Euros. Nose and orbital fractures take a few weeks to heal, so his participation at the competition is in the balance. It is possible that he could play if he wears a face mask.

Joachim Low Will Want to Go Out with a Bang

This will be Joachim Löw's last tournament in charge of Germany, and he will be looking to end his time with the national team on a high. Although it will not be easy since Germany has been drawn into a group that also contains France and Portugal. Löw has won the World Cup with Germany, but he has never won the European Championship, and he will be looking to change that this time around. At the end of the tournament, Hansi Flick will be the manager of the German national team.

The Czech Team Will Fly in For Group Matches

The Czech Republic team announced recently that they will not have a base in Edinburgh, Scotland, for the group stage of the European Championship to avoid the whole team having to go into quarantine if one player tests positive. The Czechs were drawn in Group D that also contains Scotland, England, and Croatia, and their first two games against Scotland and Croatia will be played at Hampden Park. They will spend the whole tournament based in Prague and will fly to all of their games.

Grealish is 100% Fit

There have been doubts surrounding the fitness of Jack Grealish, but Dean Smith, the Aston Villa manager has declared that the extremely talented midfielder is in top shape ahead of the tournament. Grealish, who represented Ireland at youth level, was having a great campaign with Villa before he was forced to missed 13 games with a shin injury. The Villa talisman recovered for the final two games of the season and was named in Gareth Southgate's provisional England squad, although he remains sceptical as to whether Grealish can play 90 minutes. Smith, on the other hand, has declared that he is 100% fit and will be ready to try and help England lift their first major trophy since 1966.
