The 2020 European Football Championship, postponed to the dates between 11th June and 11th July 2021 due to the Coronavirus outbreak, has began and the Euro 2020 / 2021 betting tips are available with both France leading the way to the title at 5.50. It is the 16th European Championship but different from many of the previous tournaments due to the hosts. The Euro 2020 / 2021 will be contested across 12 cities.
The Stadio Olimpico in Rome hosted the opening game and Wembley Stadium in London will be hosting both the semi-finals and final. It will be the second time Wembley has hosted the final of the European Championship but who will be contesting the showpiece occasion?
When the qualifying groups were drawn for the 2020 / 2021 European Championship there was little doubting England would qualify for the tournament. With Czech Republic, Kosovo, Bulgaria and Montenegro completing the group, it would have been a massive shock if England had not finished top never mind failing to qualify.
At the time of writing in the Euro 2020 / 2021 betting, France at 5.50, England and Belgium at 6.50 are the teams which lead the way to win the competition. This is interesting considering England have failed to reach the final of the European Championship once in the history of the tournament. They were eliminated at the round of 16 stage by Iceland in 2016, which was one of the biggest shocks in the history of the competition.

Given their somewhat average performances at the European championship, why do the Euro 2020 / 2021 betting odds have England as the favourites? The England football team looks good going forward but remain questionable in defence. France, the main competitor of England in the odds to win Euro 2020 / 2021, with its strong and determined team, will definitely try to exploit the weakness of their opponents.
Of course as a group, we want to win. What is the point of us going if we are not going there to try and win? (...) We want to win. If you win, you want to win again - it is a never-ending cycle. We haven't won yet; we've had a lot of praise. We have got to take those next steps. - Gareth Southgate, SkySports
Let's not forget that in addition to winning the 2018 World Cup, France also reached the final of the 2016 European Championship. France have won the European championship twice in their history with their most recent success coming in 2000. They have reached the quarter final or better in 5 of the last 6 European Championship tournaments and it would be no surprise if they were to make it two finals in succession.

England eventually finished 4th in the 2018 World Cup as they lost the 3rd and 4th playoff match against Belgium. England also lost to Belgium during the group stages of the tournament and, taking into account also their great beginning of the group stage with the 3-0 victory against Russia, there is no wonder the Euro 2020 / 2021 betting tips today have the Red Devils as one of the favourites to win Euro 2021 at 6.50 with Bet365.
There's been a great deal of pressure placed on the current group of Belgium players as it is believed they are the best the country has ever produced. However, Belgium are still to win either a European Championship or World Cup. Having reached the semi-final of the 2018 World Cup, Belgium lost out in a tight match against France who went on to win the competition. They reached the quarter final of the 2016 European Championship before being eliminated by Wales, which was a disappointing result.
However, there can be no doubting the quality of their qualifying campaign for the 2020 / 2021 European Championship and Belgium won all 10 of their group matches. It was a hugely impressive qualifying performance, superior to that of England and based on that, it is difficult to look beyond Belgium in our Euro 2020 / 2021 predictions as potential winners of the tournament.
Aside from perhaps Brazil and Argentina, the top nations in world football all come from the European continent and that's what makes the European championship such a tremendous and closely fought event.
Completing the top four in the Euro 2020 / 2021 betting tips today are Italy. Starting Euro 2020 by winning the opening match with Turkey 3-0, this strong team certainly deserves to be considered as a potential winner or at least one of the best teams in the tournament.

Given they are the defending champions, it may come as a surprise to see Portugal out at 9.00 in the Euro 2020 / 2021 betting odds with Bet365 to win the tournament.

Man of the match
The Portuguese finished 2nd to Ukraine in their qualifying group following a slow start but lost only one of their 10 matches. Portugal may have performed below expectations at the 2018 World Cup but they responded by winning the 2018/19 Nations League, becoming the first nation to lift the trophy.
