bet365 odds to win Euro 2020: 150/1 (Pre-tournament: 80/1)

The Austrians won plenty of games since the 2018 World Cup but in that time they have also been defeated by Latvia and Romania, as well as being destroyed 4-0 by Denmark in their own back garden.

Austria defeated North Macedonia and Ukraine to finish second in their group – a very respectable effort – but their path appears to be a blocked by an Italian wall in the Round of 16.

It would take a sublime effort by the Austrians to weave their way through to the quarter-finals.

Prediction: Round of 16

Belgium have high expectations going into Euro 2020 Getty Images

This feels like crunch time for Roberto Martinez and Belgium's golden generation, with plenty of big names approaching the autumn of their careers.

Vincent Kompany is gone and Thomas Vermaelen, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen will be following him soon. Eden Hazard has dropped off the radar on the club front but Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku have stepped up to deliver true quality when it matters at this tournament so far.

They face Portugal in the biggest game of the tournament so far and should have enough firepower to dispatch Cristiano Ronaldo's men but they may not have the organisation across the pitch to find a way beyond Italy in the quarters.

Prediction: Quarter-finals


bet365 odds to win Euro 2020: 66/1 (Pre-tournament: 33/1)

Croatia is the archetypal 'awkward' team to play in any tournament. They've got a crown jewel in the shape of Luka Modric, surrounded by better-than-average stars from top European leagues.

However, time is not on their side. Modric is 35, Mario Mandzukic is gone and this could be the last time the core of their 2018 World Cup final side plays together.

They under-performed in the group stage but clawed their way through, only to be rewarded with a clash against Spain who struck five past Slovakia in their last group game. It could be the end of the road for the Croats.

Prediction: Round of 16

Czech Republic

bet365 odds to win Euro 2020: 80/1 (Pre-tournament: 150/1)

We tipped Czech Republic to reach the quarter-finals as dark horses before the tournament started, and we're sticking with it.

West Ham duo Vladimir Coufal and Tomas Soucek add power and presence to a team bristling with established attacking stars.

Patrik Schick and Jakub Jankto are talented footballers, the former is a breakout star of the tournament, and they play a Netherlands side who did record nine points in the group stages, but have holes to be exposed at the back. There's bound to be a shock in the Ro16, we're tipping this to be it.

Prediction: Quarter-finals


bet365 odds to win Euro 2020: 18/1 (Pre-tournament: 25/1)

The Danes boast a solid squad, consisting of a string of players currently plying their trade at some of the biggest teams in Europe.

They arrived at the tournament in great form, having started their World Cup qualifying campaign with 14 goals in three matches, and re-composed themselves following the horrible Christian Eriksen incident to show their class against Russia.

Kasper Schmeichel, Andreas Christensen, Pierre Emile-Hojbjerg, and Kasper Dolberg form a solid spine and could turn Denmark into surprise dark horses for a deep run in the less competitive half of the draw.

Prediction: Semi-finals


bet365 odds to win Euro 2020: 13/2 (Pre-tournament: 6/1)

Gareth Southgate entered Euro 2020 with greater expectations on his shoulders than at the World Cup. He boasts an incredible stable of attacking talents and had to prove he could use them.

So far, we are yet to see that. England haven't conceded but they've only scored twice in three games against weaker opposition who were there for the taking.

If England can navigate a high stakes Round of 16 clash with Germany they could run all the way to the final, but we have to assess this one in the cold light of day and be very, very honest with ourselves: have you seen anything from England to suggest they will beat Germany?

Prediction: Round of 16


bet365 odds to win Euro 2020: 4/1 (Pre-tournament: 9/2)

The strength and depth of this France squad was already off the scale and then they added Karim Benzema back into the fold against the odds, after a lengthy absence from the national team.

Kylian Mbappe has simmered so far, Antoine Griezmann is always a threat for France and N'Golo Kante runs the midfield like three separate entities, while Paul Pogba has also impressed so far.

France's group stage journey wasn't a smooth one but they're through and they topped the group. They will step it up in the knockout rounds and crush all in their path. Their trickiest encounter is set to be a stunning semi-final clash with Italy. The winner of that one will lift the trophy.

Prediction: WINNERS

Germany have endured a turbulent period in the lead-up to Euro 2020 Getty Images

It's fair to say Germany didn't enter the tournament in fine shape, with iconic coach Jochim Low ready to exit the scene immediately after the tournament, to be replaced by Hansi Flick.

The Germans suffered in the 2018 World Cup and their trials didn't get any easier in the 'Group of Death' with Hungary very close to ending their tournament prematurely.

However, their saving grace proved to be third-place qualification and now they're in the knockouts, the Germans will be reinvigorated and play without fear against an England team they will feel they can beat. Germany are in the weaker half of the draw and remarkably could weave their way to the final against the odds.

The Italians hit their lowest ebb a couple of years ago after failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.

Since then, Roberto Mancini has worked wonders with a fresh squad that may not boast the big names of Italian teams gone by but has plenty of fresh attacking impetus – and has proven that so far in the group stage.

The nimble strikeforce is safe in the knowledge that the old stalwarts behind them still have life in the legs, and they will go far this summer. They are likely to meet France in the semi-finals in a pseudo final. The winner of that one will be crowned kings of Europe but it may be just one step too far for this blossoming Italian side.

Prediction: Semi-finals


bet365 odds to win Euro 2020: 9/1 (Pre-tournament: 14/1)

The Netherlands haven't played in a major tournament finals game since their third-place play-off clash at the 2014 World Cup. Their time in the wilderness is over, and they've made a strong start to Euro 2020.

Virgil van Dijk's absence has been a blow as they've shown cracks at the back but Memphis Depay and the attacking forces have seen their team through to the knockout rounds.

The Netherlands were dealt a relatively kind group, but will face pressure from Czech Republic in the Round of 16. It would be a shock result for the Czechs to triumph but we're tipping this one to upset the odds.

Prediction: Round of 16


bet365 odds to win Euro 2020: 10/1 (Pre-tournament: 8/1)

The biggest surprise about Portugal has been the relative anonymity of Bruno Fernandes and enormous impact of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Fernandes was tipped to be the main man for Portugal after a season of decline from Ronaldo at Juventus but quite the opposite has occurred.

You can never fully rule Portugal out with CR7 leading the line, but they are set to face a prickly Belgium team with two stars of the tournament in their ranks ready to punish the Portuguese.

Spain have failed to progress beyond the last 16 of a tournament since they won the Euros in 2012 – after winning the 2010 World Cup and 2008 Euros before that.

Luis Enrique's men were among the biggest disappointments in the opening two group games but switched on the style to demolish Slovakia 5-0 in their final outing.

Everything clicked for Spain in that one. It feels as though they have finally arrived at the tournament and should defeat Croatia but a tough quarter-final clash with France lies in wait.

Prediction: Quarter-finals


bet365 odds to win Euro 2020: 50/1 (Pre-tournament: 100/1)

Sweden were dealt a hammer blow when it was announced that Zlatan Ibrahimovic – who was due to return from international exile – would miss the tournament with a knee problem.

We'll never know how a tournament with Zlatan among the ranks would've gone but they couldn't have asked for more than to top Group E with seven points.

The lack of an outright superstar may have benefitted the Scandinavians who have played like a sacrificial, unselfish team unit. They have a massive chance to go beyond Ukraine in the Round of 16.

Prediction: Quarter-finals


bet365 odds to win Euro 2020: 100/1 (Pre-tournament: 66/1)

A classic international tournament finals wildcard team. Switzerland don't boast many big names, but they always arrive organised and ready to make life difficult for the group favourites.

They were underwhelming in their opening two games but defeated the woeful Turkey – one of just two teams to exit the tournament with zero points alongside North Macedonia – to progress.

They may be the weakest team left in the tournament and will almost certainly be put to the sword by France without any fuss.

Prediction: Round of 16


bet365 odds to win Euro 2020: 80/1 (Pre-tournament: 50/1)

Ukraine were undefeated in their Euro 2020 qualifiers group, which included reigning champions Portugal – who they defeated during the campaign.

Legendary striker Andriy Shevchenko now manages the team and has blended youthful talents with experienced wise heads into an attractive football team capable of upsetting the odds.

Ukraine were forced to rely on a third-place qualification spot after an unconvincing group stage showing but have a favourable draw against Sweden. That doesn't mean they'll advance any further though.

Prediction: Round of 16


bet365 odds to win Euro 2020: 80/1 (Pre-tournament: 150/1)

The Welsh entered the tournament with high hopes and low expectations. Their Euro 2016 adventure seemed highly unlikely to be replicated here – but it could be.

Wales have learned to shut teams down and produced two mature performance to pick up four points from Switzerland and Turkey.

Aaron Ramsey has match-winning potential while Gareth Bale has performed well as a deep-lying ball-player as opposed to the whippet-quick winger we used to enjoy. They have a shot at going far in the favourable half of the draw, but Denmark boast plenty of weapons.

Prediction: Round of 16
