Women’s European Championship Outright Winners Odds

Grace Crispin

Spain Odds: 7/2

Spain has only ever entered three UEFA Women’s Championships (Euros), 1997, 2013 and 2017. La Roja’s best-ever finish at the Women’s Euros came in their first-ever tournament, where they lost 2 - 1 to eventual runner-ups in Italy. The other two appearances resulted in an exit at the Quarter-final stage, a 3 - 1 loss to Norway in 2013 and a 5 - 3 penalty loss to Austria in 2017.

However, in 2022, most of the Spanish national team is made up of the majorly successful Barcelona Women’s team, who went completely unbeaten in the Primera Division, winning all 30 games.

Figurehead of La Roja, Alexia Putellas won the Ballon d’Or Feminin for Barcelona and has 26 goals in 99 international appearances, and is looking likely to add the Women’s Euros to her and Spain’s trophy cabinet.

SPAIN @ 7/2

England Odds: 4/1

England will be looking to improve upon their Semi-final appearance in the 2017 Euros, especially with the prospect of playing a final in their home stadium as the host nation.

The Lionesses have gone far in previous tournaments, their best result in the Women’s Euros coming in the first-ever Euros in 1984. England made it all the way to the inaugural final where they lost 1 - 0 to Sweden, though The Lionesses did appear in the 2009 Euros Finals, but once again lost to Germany, a tough 6 - 2 loss.

England find themselves in a group with Austria, Norway and Northern Ireland, but The Lionesses should progress and are highly likely to go all the way to Wembley. A squad full to the brim with WSL talent, and a mixture of experienced players and youth, Sarina Wiegmann’s team is a shout to make a big splash this summer.

France Odds: 5/1

France have only competed in six of the 13 Women’s Euros, only progressing past the group stage three times. In their first Euros in 1997, France placed third in their group behind Spain and Sweden, The Blues had a single win, draw and loss in their only three games.

Most recently, France reached the Quarter-finals in the 2017 Euros in the Netherlands. However, they wouldn’t progress any further as The Blues lost 1 - 0 to England. Along with this, France were unable to get past the Quarter-finals in the 2019 World Cup that was hosted in France, losing 2 - 1 to eventual winners the United States.

The current squad mainly consists of players from Lyon and PSG (with a small addition of WSL and Primera Division talent), who finished first and second respectively in the Women’s French Division 1. With both of these teams reaching the Women’s Champions League Semi-finals and Lyon winning the entire competition - France are increasingly more likely to win their first international trophy.

FRANCE @ 5/1

Netherlands Odds: 6/1

The Netherlands both hosted and won the last Women’s Euros back in 2017 when they beat Denmark 4 - 2 in the Final. This win came in just their third ever Women’s Euros after debuting in 2009, where they also reached the semi-finals, where they fell to a 2 - 1 loss to England after extra time.

However, the Netherlands may be a bigger threat than expected when the results of defending champions of the Women’s Euros are considered. The lowest ever finish for a defending champion is a Quarter-final exit, that being Germany in 2017. But most defending champions have at least returned to the final (Sweden in 1987 and Norway in 1989) or have gone back-to-back Championships.

A strong Dutch team including the likes of Vivianne Miedema who has 92 goals in 109 appearances and Danielle van de Donk cannot be counted out and therefore have good odds to challenge at the 2022 Euros.

Germany Odds: 7/1

Germany is the most successful team in Women’s Euros history, winning eight of the 13 tournaments so far - along with two Women’s World Cup victories.

Germany won the first Women’s Euros they took part in where, as West Germany, they beat Norway 4 - 1 in the 1989 Final. They also became the first team to win back-to-back Women’s Euros when they also won the 1991 Women's Euros, beating Norway in the Final, this time 3 - 1 after extra time.

After a fourth-place finish in the 1993 Women’s Euros Germany returned to form, winning the next six tournaments (1995, 1997, 2001, 2005, 2009 and 2013), the most impressive win being the 6 -2 against England.

Though Germany aren’t as dominant as they once were in the Women’s Euros, they still have a good chance to win a ninth Euros title.

Sweden Odds: 7/1

Sweden look to win their second Women’s Euros title this summer after their first win coming in the inaugural Euros back in 1984.

Since their first win Sweden have had a fair share of Runners-up finishes and Quarter-final appearances. In fact, Sweden have finished second three times and third four times, most recently in 2013 which they hosted, but lost 1 - 0 in the Semi-final to eventual winners Germany.

Last time out in the Netherlands, Sweden reached the Quarter-finals, their earliest ever exit from the Women’s Euros, losing 2 - 0 to tournament winners, the Netherlands.

With veterans like Captain Caroline Seger, who has 32 goals in 229 appearances, and vice-captain Magdalena Eriksson who recently won both the WSL and Women’s FA Cup with Chelsea, Sweden cannot be counted out for a title charge this summer.
