Here we have compiled the odds for each side left in Euro 2020 to reach the final of this summer’s competition ahead of Friday and Saturday’s quarter-finals, following a dramatic round of 16 that saw the likes of world champions France, the current holders Portugal and the Netherlands exit the competition.
Euro 2020: To Reach the Final Odds
Euro 2020: To get to the Final Odds
England Odds: 4/7
Inevitably, England have the best odds to make it to the final following their incredible 2-0 victory against Germany on Tuesday night, beating Die Mannschaft in the knockout stages of a major competition for the first time since 1966 thanks to goals from Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling.
Gareth Southgate’s have a favourable run to the final following Tuesday’s victory, as they will take on Ukraine at Rome on Saturday night in the quarter-finals, before playing the winner of the Czech Republic and Denmark game in the semi-finals, meaning that this is surely England’s best chance to reach the final of a major tournament since they won the World Cup in 1966.

ENGLAND TO REACH THE FINAL OF EURO 2020 @ 4/7
Spain Odds: 11/8
Spain come in as second most likely on the odds list, although their path looks a difficult one on paper. Last time out Spain beat Croatia 5-3 after extra time having blown a 3-1 lead in the last 5 minutes of the game, following goals by Mislav Orsic and Mario Pasalic, but, Luis Enrique’s side managed to recover in extra-time thanks to goals by Alvaro Morata and Mikel Oyarazabal.
The Spaniards will take on Switzerland in the quarter-finals who dumped out world champions France on penalties following a 3-3 draw after extra time and could be a tricky test for a Spain side that could only manage draws against Sweden and Poland in the group stages. If Spain are to progress to the semi-finals, then they will face one of Italy or Belgium of which on current form they are likely to be second-favourites to win that match.

Italy Odds: 2/1
Since the opening match of the tournament when Italy beat Turkey at the Stadio Olimpico all eyes have been on Roberto Mancini’s Italy, having cruised through the group stages, scoring seven goals in three games without conceding a goal, with those statistics looking as emphatic as they sound.
The Italians had a tough test against Austria last time out at Wembley but progressed through the round of 16 by a 2-1 scoreline, thanks to extra-time strikes of Juventus’ Federico Chiesa and Atalanta midfielder Matteo Pessina. Italy will now take on Belgium in the quarter-finals where they come in as slight favourites with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard both being substituted due to injury in the Red Devils victory against Portugal in the last round.
If Italy are to make it through to the semi-finals, then they will take on either Spain or Switzerland in the semi-finals which will be a tricky test on paper, but a manageable one for the Azzurri.

ITALY TO REACH THE FINAL OF EURO 2020 @ 2/1
Belgium Odds: 3/1
Belgium as mentioned above will take on Italy and go down the same path if they are to make it to the final. Roberto Martinez’s side edged out Portugal in the round of 16, as Borussia Dortmund forward Thorgan Hazard scored the only goal of the game in what was the Red Devils only shot on target, meaning that they will likely need to improve their attacking display in the quarter-finals if they are to go through.
Something that the Belgians will be sweating over is the fitness levels of De Bruyne and Eden Hazard coming into this game as Martinez has admitted that they won’t be at 100% fitness levels. If Belgium do make it past Italy then they will likely be favourites to beat their semi-final opponents in Spain or Switzerland due to putting in much more consistent performances than either of those sides.

Denmark Odds: 3/1
Denmark come in next at 3/1 having been the first team to lose both of their opening two European Championship group stage matches to get through the group, following unfortunate 1-0 and 2-1 losses against Finland and Belgium, despite accumulating 43 shots to their opponents seven.
Kasper Hjulmand’s side ultimately advanced due to their impressive 4-1 hammering of Russia in Copenhagen on matchday three and then re-wrote history again by thumping Wales 4-0 in the round of 16 at Amsterdam thanks to goals from Kasper Dolberg (2), Joakim Maehle and Martin Braithwaite, becoming the first team in Euros history to score four goals in back to back games.
The Danes have a good outside chance due to their form, as well as the fact that they take on the Czech Republic in the quarter-finals, but they will have to beat either England or Ukraine in the semi-finals, with the Three Lions being the most likely opponents, although they can take the encouragement of the fact that they took four points from Gareth Southgate’s men in the Nations League group stages last year.
Czech Republic Odds: 15/2
The Czech Republic have been one of the surprise packages of the tournament so far, having advanced from Group C with four points, one goal behind Croatia. Ever since Patrik Schick’s incredible brace against Scotland on matchday one, they have looked like they could be a tricky opponent, having drawn with the Croats and pushed England all the way in the Three Lions 1-0 victory at Wembley.
In the round of 16, the Czechs faced a tricky test in the Netherlands and capitalised on a rare mistake from Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt who received a red card for a deliberate handball just before the hour mark, of which Jaroslav Šilhavý’s side then went on to score goals through Tomas Holes on 68th minute and Schick with just 10 minutes to go, with the Bayer Leverkusen striker taking his goal tally to four in this year’s competition.
Switzerland Odds: 9/1
Next up is Switzerland who come in at 9/1 having also qualified via a third-place finish in Group A, having beaten Turkey 3-1 on matchday three, as well as earning a point against Wales in their opening match, losing the other game to Italy 3-0.
The Swiss provided us with a classic encounter in the round of 16, as they dumped world champions France out of the competition, having come back from 3-1 down with just nine minutes to go thanks to goals from Benfica’s Haris Seferovic and Dinamo Zagreb forward Mario Gavranović, before winning 5-4 on penalties thanks to Yann Sommer saving Kylian Mbappe’s penalty which was France’s fifth penalty.
Vladimir Petković’s side are one that will not be underestimated by their opponents following their famous win in the last round, but, they will have to pull off two more shock results if they are to make it to the final, against Spain in the quarter-finals, before taking on one of Belgium or Italy in the semi-finals.
Ukraine Odds: 11/1
The final team on this list is Ukraine, who are managed by former AC Milan legend and national icon Andriy Shevchenko. Ukraine made it through the group as the worst of the four best third-placed teams, thanks to their narrow 2-1 victory against North Macedonia on matchday two in Group C via strikes from Andriy Yarmolenko and Roman Yaremchuk, having lost their two other group matches 3-2 to the Netherlands and 1-0 to Austria.
To reach the quarter-finals, Ukraine beat Sweden 2-1 at Hampden Park in dramatic circumstances, following a stoppage-time winner in extra time from Artem Dovbyk of Dnipro. This setup a quarter-finals match against England in Rome, of which Shevchenko’s side are massive underdogs and will have to overcome the Three Lions before taking on one of Denmark or the Czech Republic in what would be another tough game for Ukraine if they are to beat all the odds and make it to the final.
