For a nations to be able to apply to compete in the EUROs, they need to be a member of UEFA. There were total of 55 member states that have applied for the EURO 2020. 20 of the nations reached the tournament by playing through the European Qualifiers.
The qualifying matches ran from March to November 2019 and the format was as follows: the 55 nations were divided into 10 groups of 5 or 6 teams each. The winners of these groups were moved to the next stage of the EURO 2020.
Unlike the previous EUROs competitions, there weren’t any automatic qualifiers for the tournament, even if they were one of the host countries. In fact, host countries still had to earn their spot in the tournament by playing qualifying matches.
The final 4 nations were decided through the European Qualifiers Play-Offs. 16 nations, who were the best teams in the UEFA Nation’s League but didn’t qualify for the EURO 2020, played against each other for a chance at playing in the EUROs.
The 24 nations that qualified will be split into 6 groups of 4 teams each. The teams will play against each other, and the best 2 of each group will be part of the 16 nations that move to the next phase of the EURO 2020.
This is the knockout stage consisting of group of 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals, and finals rounds. The team that emerges on top will be the winner of the EURO 2020! Speaking of which, we’ll be going over which nations managed to qualify in the following section.
The groups are the nations that will be competing with each other in the group stages of the tournament. They were selected on the basis of the results in the qualifying playoffs. There are 6 groups and each is made up of 4 teams. The groups are as follows:
There will be 12 different cities hosting the games. One of the perks of being a host nation is that if they do manage to qualify for that final round of 24 teams, they will automatically be put into the groups that correspond to their stadium.
This means that these nations are guaranteed to play all three of their group-stage games at home, giving them the home advantage. All the information regarding the 12 host cities has been compiled in the following table:
|Azerbaijan||Baku||Baku Olympic Stadium|
|Germany||Munich||Football Arena Munich|
|Russia||Saint Petersburg||St Petersburg Stadium|
|The Netherlands||Amsterdam||Johan Cruijff Arena|
|Spain||Bilbao||San Mames Stadium|
Odds are the numbers that show up next to our wagers on the EURO 2020. These numbers are important because indicate the probability of an event happening. Moreover, they also show you how much money you stand to win if the bet is successful.
High odds will give you a good payout but indicate that it’s less likely to happen. Low odds for a team mean they’re likely to win, but you won’t win so much from placing that bet. Because of this, it’s important that you understand what odds mean.
Finally, odds can be found in a number of different formats, which are: fractional, decimal, and American. The only differences between these formats are how they represent the odds and where in the world they’re most popular.
The most common format that you’ll encounter when betting in the UK is the fractional format. This is the format of choice for British and Irish bookmakers. They’re indicated using fractions, as in the following examples: 1/4, 6/7, 9/11, etc.
This is another format that you can make use of on our sportsbook. Decimal odds are mostly popular in Europe, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. This format uses decimal numbers to indicate the odds, such as the following: 2.65, 7.75, 10.00, etc.
