Tips on How to make Euro 2021 Predictions
Betting markets allow you to make bets on match results, total goals, correct score, most yellow/red cards, player of the tournament, among other bets. You can also choose which team will top the group, which team will qualify for the round of 16, and which one will not. Before you go ahead to make any betting predictions, here are some important factors to consider:
- Current Form
The form of any team is a very important factor in determining how formidable the team is. However, it is not always a true indication. Many will argue that France had the best form in Euro 2016 yet they still lost to Portugal. The form of a team can help you make the right bets in the group stage and the round of 16. This year, we have players like Antoine Greizman, Kylian Mbappe, and Pogba in the France lineup. Then Raheem Sterling, Harry Kane in England’s line up and Kevin De Bruhyne, Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku taking the lead for Belgium. These teams are likely to lead their groups.
- The Importance of the Match
In the group stages, the importance of the match determines how much effort players would put into winning the game. If Spain has already qualified for the round of 16 after two games, they might decide to remove their most valuable players from subsequent games leading to draws and sometimes losses.
The Euro 2021 is taking place in different countries. The teams playing in their home country would be under more pressure to win even if they’re the underdogs.
Favourites to Win the Euro 2021
The Euro 2021 will see Europe’s best teams go against each other for the title. Based on various factors and considerations, here are some of the top teams we believe might carry the Euro 2021 trophy.
The last 4 Euro competitions haven’t been the best for France’s national team, but with their performance in the Euro 2016 competition, they might win the tournament. They boast of a more experienced squad consisting of top players from the most popular club leagues in Europe.
Ranked as the 5th national men’s football team according to FIFA, Portugal is the current reigning champion and is regarded as one of the top contenders for the title. Portugal would face Germany and France in the Group stages and battle it out with other major challengers. They might have a slim chance of retaining the championship but that might be all they really need.
Spain won both the 2008 and 2012 championships but was kicked out of the Euro 2016 competition in the round of 16. They also didn’t claim any titles in the 2018 World Cup or Nations League. However, they performed quite well in the qualifying stage, winning eight of their ten fixtures. They aren’t just the major contenders for the Euro 2021 but also the likely winners.
