The European championships are now set to take place next year following postponement, as all the major sides have already guaranteed their participation. It appears very open at this stage, with a number of sides going in having produced impressive qualification campaigns. With sports all being cancelled, punters have been moving to use Energy Casino promo code, but will all be looking forward to the return of sports to our screens.
Here we cover the three leading sides in the betting markets to go on and land the title.
Amazingly enough, it is England who are now the general outright favourites to go on and win the European championships. This follows on from their impressive run to the semi-finals of the World Cup two years ago. England are around 9/2 for the title, and produced an impressive qualification campaign. This saw them top Group A, ahead of the likes of Kosovo and the Czech Republic. The latter have also been drawn in the same group against England in the finals. England finished having picked up 21 points from a possible 24, winning seven and lost once. They now go in looking to win the tournament for the first time and just their second major trophy, the first coming via the 1966 World Cup success.
France are also amongst the favourites and can be supported at around 6/1 in the betting markets. They enter in flying form, coming off the back of winning the 2018 World Cup in Russia. France are also one of the most successful sides in World football, with two World Cup wins and two victories at the European championships. They were also beaten finalists in this competition back in 2016, when losing to Portugal. France were another side to produce an impressive qualification campaign. They topped Group H, against the likes of Turkey and Iceland. However, they could only take a point from the two fixtures against Turkey, which was a surprise. France finished having picked up 25 points from a possible 30, winning eight, drawing one and losing one.
Belgium are then next in the markets and can be supported at around 11/2. Belgium remain amongst the top sides in the world at present and have a squad full of some of the world’s top players. They recently finished third at the 2018 World Cup in Russia and will now be looking to improve further and land the title last this year. Belgium will also be looking for their first major title, with their best finish coming as runners-up in the 1980 European championships. Alongside Italy, they finished their qualification campaign as the only two sides to take maximum points. They topped Group I, against the likes of Russia and Scotland. Belgium won all ten fixtures and now head in as one of the teams to beat.
