Euro 2020 qualifying predictions

Category: Competitions: UEFA European Football Championship
Euro 2020 will be UEFA’s 16th European Championship and will be first to take place in more than two host countries.

The tournament is scheduled to be held in 12 cities across 12 European countries from 12 June-12 July 2020.

Portugal will head into the tournament as the defending champions after upsetting hosts France two years ago.

The two semi-finals and final itself will take place at Wembley Stadium in London, England. The other 11 stadiums and cities participating in the tournament are as follows:

Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam, Netherlands Olympic Stadium in Baku, Azerbaijan San Mamés in Bilbao, Spain Arena Na?ional? in Bucharest, Romania Puskás Aréna in Budapest, Hungary Parken Stadium in Copenhagen, Denmark Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Republic of Ireland Hampden Park in Glasgow, Scotland Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Italy Krestovsky Stadium in Saint Petersburg, Russia

The draw took place earlier this month with the four winners of the top UEFA Nations League groups being automatically given top seeding. The other seedings were based on the FIFA World Rankings.

The qualifying groups are a good opportunity for betters to Dutch. This means backing at good odds and trading when they drop. To help punters work out their potential profit they should check out a dutching calculator.

Here are how the groups worked out:

Group A

Gareth Southgate’s England have been handed a favourable draw after winning their UEFA Nations League group versus Spain and Croatia.

To qualify for Euro 2020 the Three Lions will need to get past the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Montenegro and Kosovo. None of these nations reached the World Cup earlier this summer.

Group B

Defending champions Portugal must be licking their lips at the draw they have been handed. Fernando Santos’ side come up against Ukraine, Serbia, Lithuania and Luxembourg.

Group C

Drawn in the same UEFA Nations League group, Germany and Netherlands are set to meet twice more over the next two years as they were drawn in the same Euro 2020 qualifying group. Northern Ireland, Estonia and Belarus make up the group.

Group D

Group D is arguably a very open group with Switzerland as the top seeds as a result of winning their UEFA Nations League group. Denmark were drawn out of pot 2 whilst Republic of Ireland, Georgia and Gibraltar making up the rest of the group.

Group E

World Cup runners-up will fancy their chances of winning Group E as they have been drawn alongside Wales, Slovakia, Hungary and Azerbaijan. None of these opponents qualified for this past summer’s World Cup.

Group F

After a disappointing World Cup, Spain are setup nicely to qualify for Euro 2020 at ease. The three-times winners of this competition will be up against Sweden, Norway, Romania, the Faroe Islands and Malta in qualifying.

Group G

Another group without a big name nation is Group G. Poland were the number one seed here and are joined by Austria, Israel, Slovenia, Macedonia and Latvia.

Group H

The world champions have been given a group that the bookmakers are expecting them to breeze. France will face Iceland, Turkey, Albania, Moldova and Andorra. Didier Deschamps will be pleased with what his nation have been handed.

Group I

Euro 2020 may be Belgium’s Golden Generation’s last shot at winning a trophy. Qualifying shouldn’t be a problem for them as they’ve been drawn up against Russia, Scotland, Cyprus, Kazakhstan and Cyprus.
