The tournament kicks off on 14 June

The 17th edition of the UEFA Euro 2024 is poised to kick off on June 14th, with Germany proudly taking on the role of host nation. The stakes are high, as the winner of this prestigious tournament will later lock horns with the champion of Copa America 2024 in the 2025 CONMEBOL–UEFA Cup of Champions. Twenty-four formidable teams are set to battle it out for glory in UEFA Euro 2024.

Italy enters the competition as the defending champions, having clinched victory against England in the thrilling final of the previous edition.

This marks the third occasion that Germany has had the honor of hosting the tournament, but it’s the first time the country will stand alone as the sole host nation. Anticipation is at its peak as football enthusiasts eagerly await the kickoff of UEFA Euro 2024.

Recently, Opta’s supercomputer unveiled its predictions for the top eight teams with the highest likelihood of clinching the championship. Let’s delve into these projections:

8. Belgium 4.7%

The golden generation of Belgium completed their tenure without getting their hands on a major international trophy.

So, now a young Belgium team is getting ready to participate in the UEFA Euro 2024 without the presence of many of their star high-profile players. Opta’s supercomputer has found out that they have a 4.7% chance of winning the Euro 2024.

7. Italy 5%

Italy are the defending champions of the tournament. They went past a strong England team in the penalties in the final of the UEFA Euro 2020 in 2021. However, they did not have a consistent performance in the last few years as they could not qualify for the FIFA World Cup 2022.

They will be looking to come back hard and will try to repeat their championship-winning performance in this year’s tournament. Opta’s supercomputer has given Italy a 5% chance of winning the UEFA Euro 2024.

6. Netherlands 5.1%

Netherlands might turn out as one of the dark horses in the tournament under Ronald Koeman. Koeman has got a talented bunch of players after Louis van Gaal took the Dutch team to the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup 2022 where they ultimately lost to Argentina. Opta’s supercomputer has given the Netherlands a 5.1% chance of winning the UEFA Euro 2024.

5. Portugal 9.2%

Portugal have a talented bunch of players who are at the peak of their powers. Portugal will be headed by the absolute legendary Cristiano Ronaldo, who is still scoring for fun. Roberto Martinez will face his first real test as the coach of the Selecao side. Opta’s supercomputer has given Portugal a 9.2% chance of winning the UEFA Euro 2024.

4. Spain 9.6%

The golden generation of the Spanish national team is over with the FIFA World Cup 2022. Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba were the final two players of one of the most legendary sides in the history of the game. A young and next-generation Spanish team will be coached by Luis de la Fuente in the Euro 2024. Opta’s supercomputer has still given a 9.6% chance to Spain for winning this edition.

3. Germany 12.4%

The three-time champions have had some torrid time and bad results in the last few tournaments. Germany will be re-energized and want to prove a point on their home soil in the UEFA Euro 2024. However, Toni Kroos coming back from retirement will give them a lot of boost going into the tournament. Opta’s supercomputer has given a 12.4% chance to Germany to win this edition.

2. France 19.1%

France are one of the teams to defeat in the UEFA Euro 2024. They have a bunch of world-class players who are at the peak of their powers. The FIFA World Cup 2022 finalists will be coming to UEFA Euro 2024 with Kylian Mbappe leading their lines yet again. They are even stronger than what they were in the FIFA World Cup 2024. Opta’s supercomputer has given them a 19.1% chance of winning the tournament.

1. England 19.9%

England are the favourites of the UEFA Euro 2024. In the last few tournaments, fans and analysts have had a lot of expectations of England but they have not managed to fulfil it.

However, the hype is at its highest going into the UEFA Euro 2024. This is their best chance to bring the trophy back home. So, Opta’s Supercomputer has given them a 19.9% chance of winning the Euro 2024.
