Who are the favourites to win Euro 2024?

Euro 2024 kicks off on Friday 14th June as hosts Germany entertain Scotland at the Allianz Arena in Munich.

The hosts have been inconsistent over the past few years but Julian Nagelsmann’s squad have at least found form in friendlies since the turn of the year. Albeit, those should be taken with a pinch of salt.

England are the bookmakers’ shock 7/2 favourites to go all the way for the first time this summer, despite bad form and a very questionable defence. The Three Lions had a very favourable schedule in reaching the final three years ago, which included beating Ukraine in the quarter-finals, and Denmark in extra-time of the semi-finals.

France arguably have the strongest squad heading into the finals and are the bookmakers’ second favourites. Didier Deschamps’ squad includes experience in the likes of Olivier Giroud, Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe, N’Golo Kante and Kingsley Coman, whilst also some of the world’s top stars in Mbappe, Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni and Dayot Upamecano.

Germany are the third favourites on home soil. They can never be written off heading into any tournament. 38-year-old Manuel Neuer remains between the sticks, protected by the likes of Antonio Rudiger, Joshua Kimmich and Jonathan Tah. Captained by Ilkay Gundogan, they have playmakers in Toni Kroos, Florian Wirtz and Leroy Sane. Although they have the experienced Thomas Muller, albeit without a single goal at the European Championships, they arguably don’t have a stand out striker.

Portugal have a star-studded squad and have been made 6/1 fourth favourites with the bookmakers, followed by Spain at 9/1.
