How to bet on the Euros
The battle to be crowned Europe’s leading soccer nation is always intense and fascinating. Several soccer superpowers are usually in contention to win this prestigious prize. Euro 2020 online betting was a wonderful way to get involved in a thrilling tournament, and come 2024 there is bound to be more of the same.
Italy conquered Europe for the first time since 1968 by beating England on penalties at Wembley Stadium. The two sides could not be separated after 120 minutes of play, but the Azzurri held their nerve to win 3-2 in the penalty shoot-out.
2020 Golden Boot winner
The veteran Ronaldo scored five goals and got an assist in just four matches, as the holders exited the tournament in the last 16. Patrik Schick of the Czech Republic also scored five times but his failure to assist meant the Portugal captain took the Golden Boot.
2020 Player of the Tournament
The first goalkeeper to win the award, Italy's shot-stopper was fantastic throughout the tournament, conceding just four times in seven matches. He guided the Azzurri through penalty shootout victories against Spain in the semi-final and England in the final.
2020 Young Player of the Tournament
The 18-year-old Spain midfielder was outstanding as his country did better than many expected and reached the semi-finals. Having only played one season of senior football with Barcelona, he looks set to enjoy an incredible career in the years to come.
The overall winner for the European Championship is always an interesting market to bet on.
Ahead of the tournament there are usually five or six main contenders in the running, but the tournament has a history of surprise winners coming from outside of the favourites.
Greece's victory in 2004 and Denmark in 1992 are the best examples of this, but even Italy at Euro 2020 and Portugal at Euro 2016 were far from big favourites before those tournaments began.
10 different nations have been crowned European champions across 16 different tournaments, so it's definitely worth considering outsider options at longer odds.
The race for the Golden Boot at the Euros is always hotly contested, with superstars and surprise packages winning alike over the years.
At Euro 2020, the legendary Cristiano Ronaldo edged out outsider Patrik Schick by virtue of having made an assist, as both forwards scored five goals each.
Previous golden boot winners have included household names like Antoine Griezmann, David Villa and Alan Shearer.
But the likes of Alan Dzagoev, Milan Baros and Tomas Brolin have also won the Golden Boot, which shows that it's often worth a bet on one of the less-favoured contenders.
In a competition as close as this, with so many contenders, the challenge to name the finalists is a stiff one. But it is a challenge many visitors to European Championship betting sites will relish.
With the draw made, it is possible to predict how the big guns might progress through the tournament.
At Euro 2020, England reached the final for the first time in their history, and may have been helped that six of their seven matches were held at their home stadium of Wembley.
In 2024, Germany will be the only country to enjoy home advantage so will fancy their chances of a first European Championship final since 2008.
But it may be best to wait until the final tournament draw to work out which two teams have the best route to the final before betting on this market.
6/14/2024 - 7/14/2024
Germany will stage the 2024 edition, and it will be the first time they have hosted the competition since 1988.
Three-times winners of the tournament, the country that has produced legends such as Gerd Muller, Jurgen Klinsmann and Bastian Schweinsteiger will be hoping to secure a first European crown since 1996 after a disappointing round-of-16 exit at Euro 2020.
