Euro 2020 Player of the Tournament Odds & Prediction

Kevin De Bruyne

Manchester City's talisman Kevin De Bruyne is the favourite to win the Euro 2020 Player of the Tournament. The 2019/20 Premier League PFA player of the year is having another great year at the Etihad, contributing more goal involvements than anyone else in the league, bar Harry Kane and Bruno Fernandes, and the Belgian is now at the peak of his powers, aged 29.

Roberto Martinez's current Belgium team are known as the country's golden generation, and with the likes of Romelu Lukaku, De Bruyne and Eden Hazard all in their prime years, this may be their best opportunity to get their hands on silverware after finishing third at the 2018 World Cup.

De Bruyne and co. face a modest group of Russia, Denmark, and Finland in the group stages, which could see the playmaker get off to a perfect start and odds the Euro 2020 Player of the Tournament odds for De Bruyne are 8/1.

Kylian Mbappe

Kylian Mbappe is next up, and predictably so.

The Paris Saint-Germain attacker is having another incredible campaign with the French champions and started 2021 with arguably his most iconic performance yet, netting a hat-trick against Barcelona at the Nou Camp which now sees him as the favourite to win the Ballon d'Or.

The 22-year-old already has 39 goal contributions in 36 games for the Parisians, and if he continues that form going into the Euros, he could well win the Ballon d'Or. However, France do start their Euro campaign in the highly anticipated 'group of death,' which boasts both Germany and Portugal alongside the World Cup holders.

Nevertheless, Didier Deschamps' team more than possesses the quality to progress, and this places Mbappe

Antoine Griezmann

Maybe surprisingly, Barcelona forward Antoine Griezmann is third-placed on the list for the Player of the Tournament. The 30-year-old has struggled overall since moving from Atletico Madrid to the Nou Camp, but has hit form at the right time this campaign as Barcelona fight for La Liga.

However, Griezmann's form for the world champions has never been called into question. He has an outstanding record for his country, contributing 35 goals and 21 assists in 89 caps for Deschamps' team. The forward was also the Euro 2016 Player of the Tournament, and Golden Boot winner with six goals, making him the first Frenchman since Michel Platini in 1984 to be the tournament's top scorer.

Given his successful rich history in the competition, Griezmann is priced at 12/1 to win the Euro 2020 Player of the Tournament.

Harry Kane

England captain Harry Kane is another player that naturally makes the list, given his incredible form for club and country this season. The Tottenham centre-forward has found a new dimension to his game this campaign, contributing both goals and assists in a role that sees him top the goalscoring and assists charts in the Premier League.

The 2018 World Cup Golden Boot winner also plays for the current favourites for the Euros 2021 as Gareth Southgate's men are currently priced at 5/1 to win the tournament. Given England's evident quality, they have the ability to go all the way in the tournament, with the Three Lions facing a modest group to play of Croatia, Czech Republic, and Scotland, England's talisman could be excellent value at 14/1.

Bruno Fernandes

Bruno Fernandes has been a gem of a player since joining Old Trafford from Sporting Lisbon in January 2020 and is somewhere in between the exciting blend of youth and experience that Fernando Santos possesses going into their defence of the trophy this summer.

The Manchester United man is a goal contribution machine, with 38 goals and 24 assists in just 78 games for the club and if he carries that form into the Euros, the Portuguese could be a force to be reckoned with once again this summer

However, despite the 26-year-old's scintillating club form, he has struggled for goals on the international stage, with just two in 25 caps. Given Fernandes's quality, though, it would not be a surprise if he turned his form for his country around, and this sees him at 18/1 for Euro 2020 Player of the Tournament.

Cristiano Ronaldo

A name that has to be on this list is the footballing icon, Cristiano Ronaldo. Given Portugal's outstanding talent - a team that is arguably better than the one that won the 2016 edition of the tournament - it may come as a surprise that the five-time Ballon d'Or winner is priced at 20/1 to win the Player of the Tournament award.

However, as mentioned, Portugal come up against both Germany and France in the group stages, which could be why he is at 20/1. Nevertheless, if Fernando Santos can navigate Portugal through the 'group of death,' they possess all the tools to go all the way, and there is no better captain to help them defend their crown.

With the 36-year-old continuing to excel at a struggling Juventus this season, netting a league-high 27 goals in 30 games for the Old Lady, Ronaldo is still proving why he is, in the eyes of many, the greatest to ever do it.

Romelu Lukaku

The second Belgian to make the list is Inter Milan's Romelu Lukaku, who has been rejuvenated under Antonio Conte's tutelage at the San Siro over the past two seasons. The powerful 6'3 striker has been one of Serie A's best strikers since joining the league from Old Trafford in 2019 and Lukaku currently averages a goal contribution a game this season with 21 goals in 33 Serie A games, after 23 in 36 last time out.

Playing under his former Everton manager, Martinez, Lukaku will have quite the supply feeding him going into the Euros with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Youri Teilemans playing a supporting role.

Lukaku has all the constituents to have a successful Euro 2020 and given the Red Devils' reasonable group, the striker could get off to a fruitful start, which means he is currently priced at 20/1 for Player of the Tournament.

Joshua Kimmich

The first and only German to make the list is the 2020 Champions League-winning midfielder Joshua Kimmich who has transitioned from a right-back into one of the finest holding midfielders of his generation in recent years.

The 26-year-old is instrumental in Hansi Flick's Bayern Munich side, and often controls the tempo in any game that he plays in. A lot was made when Bayern let Thiago move to Anfield in the summer, but Kimmich has highlighted his presence as far superior to the Spaniard ever since.

A lot has been made in this list about the so-called 'group of death', but once again, another world star in Kimmich will have to steer his way through it if he is to stand a chance of winning the Player of the Tournament.

Despite the favourites for the accolade often being attackers, the Euros have seen midfielders similar to Kimmich pick up the award. Xavi Hernandez (2008) and Andres Iniesta (2012) have both been rewarded with the Player of the Tournament before, so could Kimmich follow in their footsteps? The Euro 2020 Player of the Tournament odds for him are priced at 20/1.
