All you need to know about Euro 2020
When is Euro 2020?
It’s finally here! A year later than scheduled due to the coronavirus pandemic, Euro 2020 finally gets underway on Friday, June 11 2021. The final will take place at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, July 11 2021. We’ve provided a full Euro 2020 schedule for you below.
Where is Euro 2020?
The Euros are typically hosted by one country, but to mark the tournament’s 60th birthday, matches at Euro 2020 will take place in 11 cities across the continent. Dublin and Bilbao were originally on the list but were recently removed due to coronavirus rules in Ireland and Spain respectively. In a potential boost to England’s hopes of lifting the trophy, Wembley Stadium will now host the semi-finals and the final at Euro 2020.
Amsterdam (Netherlands) – Johan Cruyff Arena
Baku (Azerbaijan) – Olympic Stadium
Seville (Spain) – Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium
Bucharest (Romania) – Arena Nationala
Budapest (Hungary) – Puskas Arena
Copenhagen (Denmark) – Parken Stadium
Glasgow (Scotland) – Hampden Park
London (England) – Wembley Stadium
Munich (Germany) – Allianz Arena
Rome (Italy) – Stadio Olimpico
Saint Petersburg (Russia) – Krestovsky Stadium
Euro 2020 Groups
A: Italy, Switzerland, Turkey, Wales
B: Belgium, Russia, Denmark, Finland
C: Ukraine, Netherlands, Austria, North Macedonia
D: England, Croatia, Czech Republic, Scotland
E: Spain, Poland, Sweden, Slovakia
F: Germany, France, Portugal, Hungary
Who are the favourites to win Euro 2020?
France (5/1), who lost to Portugal in the final last time out, go into the tournament as slight favourites but England (11/2) are most certainly in the mix along with the likes of Belgium (6/1), Germany (9/1) and Spain (9/1). But don’t rule out an underdog coming to the fore ala Greece in 2004 or Denmark in 1992!
After making it to the last four at Euro 2016, Wales won’t be there just to make up the numbers. Meanwhile, Scotland, who join England in Group D, will also be hoping to do the home nations proud, having qualified for their first major tournament since 1998.
Whoever you’re backing, BetConnect will have you covered for all your Euro 2020 betting needs. So read on to find out how you can get involved.
What Euro 2020 betting markets are there?
BetConnect is where you will find the BEST bookmaker odds for every single match at Euro 2020. There is a wide range of markets available. Some need no explanation but others are a bit more complicated, so we’ve provided a brief outline of our Euro 2020 betting markets for you below.
Here you are backing either team to win the match or it ending in a draw. You should note that once we reach the knockout stage, this market will be settled on the result after ‘normal time’. So not including extra time or penalties.
The same as above, but as you might expect, this market will be settled at half-time. You are betting on either team to be winning at half-time, or maybe you think they will still be level, regardless of the full-time result.
This market involves placing a bet on what you think the outcome will be at both half-time AND full-time. For example, in a match between England and Scotland, you could back draw/England. This means you are hoping it will be a draw at half-time but England will go on to win the game in the second half. This market does not include extra time or penalties.
Asian Handicap betting is a bit more complicated. Teams are ‘handicapped’ according to their form, meaning the stronger team must win by more goals to give you a winning bet. Asian handicap betting will offer great value throughout Euro 2020, so why not check out our article.
Here you are betting on whether you think the total number of goals scored in a match will be higher (over) or lower (under) than the total specified in your bet. At BetConnect, you can bet on there to be over or under 1.5, 2.5, 3.5, or 4.5 goals in a match. But obviously, it is impossible to score half a goal. So if you back over 2.5 goals when England faces Scotland, you are hoping there will be three or more goals scored in the match. Likewise if you back under 2.5 goals, your bet will only be a winner if there are two goals or fewer in the match. Once again, this market does not include extra time or penalties.
Both Teams to Score
If you place a bet on both teams to score, you are hoping both teams find the back of the net before the final whistle is blown, excluding extra time and penalties. That is to say, England might be losing 5-0, but if they score in the 89th minute to make it 5-1, your bet still wins.
Draw No Bet
This market removes the option of a draw. For example, if England is playing France, you can back either team to win, and if the match is all square at the end of normal time, your stake will be returned.
Home/Away Team Clean Sheet
Here you are backing a team not to concede. England could beat Scotland 3-0 or draw 0-0, if they don’t let in a goal during normal time, your bet will be a winner.
First goalscorer betting is one of the most popular markets around for football betting. You are simply placing a bet on a specific player to score the very first goal of a match. If you back Harry Kane to score first against Scotland, but another player from either team scores first, then your bet loses. You can also place a ‘no goalscorer’ bet if you think the game will be goalless after normal time. It’s probably a good idea to check out the rules around the first goalscorer betting here.
Anytime Goalscorer Betting
Exactly the same as above but you are betting on the player to score at any point of a match in normal time. It doesn’t matter when the player scores or whether he scores the first or fifth goal of a match, only that the player you bet on scored.
