Mbappe Priced at 5/4 to be France's Top Scorer at Euro 2020

France's Chances at Euro 2020

France are currently priced as second-favourites to win Euro 2021 at 11/2 despite having a tricky group to navigate their way through.

Didier Deschamps’ side were drawn out against Germany, Portugal and Hungary in what has been labelled as the group of death by many, but, understandably the 2018 World Cup winners are expected to go through due to the incredible quality that their squad possesses.

This article features the odds for who will be France’s top scorers in the upcoming Euros, as Les Bleus look to go one better than what they did in Euro 2016, where they finished as runners up on home soil to Portugal.

Kylian Mbappe Odds: 5/4

Kylian Mbappe is the favourite to be France’s top scorer which is understandable considering the season that the Paris Saint-Germain striker is having.

The 22-year-old has scored a staggering 37 goals in 43 matches for his club this season and was even the second top scorer at the 2018 World Cup with four goals, two fewer than Harry Kane. Mbappe has shown a tendency to turn up in big matches for his country, having scored a brace against Argentina in the Round of 16, as well as the fourth goal in his nation’s 4-2 victory against Croatia in the final.

Antoine Griezmann Odds: 15/8

Barcelona striker Antoine Griezmann is the second favourite to be France’s top scorer, which is understandable considering his immense goalscoring form for France.

The 30-year-old has scored 35 goals in 89 appearances for the national team and has scored some clutch goals in big matches, such as a brace in the semi-finals of Euro 2016 where France dumped World Champions Germany out on their way to the final. Griezmann also scored the second goal in the World Cup final against Croatia, finishing as the joint-second top scorer in the competition alongside Kylian Mbappe.

Griezmann’s league goal tally of 12 goals in 33 matches for Barca this season is slightly skewed, as he has played just 13 games as a centre-forward, mainly due to Ronald Koeman figuring out the Frenchman’s best position, as the former Atletico Madrid man has also played as an attacking midfielder, right and left-wingers, as well as being utilised as a second striker alongside Lionel Messi.

Griezmann finished as the top scorer in Euro 2016 with six goals, the most scored by a single player since Michel Platini scored nine in 1984, which sees the Barca striker priced at 15/8 to be France’s top scorer once again this time out.

Olivier Giroud Odds: 11/2

Giroud is the next player on this list, as he features as third-favourite to be France’s top scorer at the European Championships.

The 34-year-old is actually Chelsea’s second top scorer this season with 11 goals in 28 appearances, just one behind the likes of Tammy Abraham and Timo Werner despite playing significantly fewer minutes than the latter two.

The Chelsea man finished as the second top scorer in the last European Championship, only behind his teammate Griezmann, having scored three goals and made two assists, the same record as Cristiano Ronaldo having played one less game than the Juventus striker.

Kingsley Coman Odds: 16/1

The fourth player on this list is Kingsley Coman of Bayern Munich. The 24-year-old has had a good season for the German champions, scoring four goals and making 10 assists despite being regularly rotated with the likes of Leroy Sane and Serge Gnabry, but, is likely to make the left-wing position his own at the upcoming Euros.

Coman has five goals in 29 caps for France, with his most recent goal coming against Sweden in the UEFA Nations League, where Dechamps’ side came out as 4-2 winners.

Wissam Ben Yedder Odds: 20/1

At the age of 30, this will be AS Monaco striker Wissam Ben Yedder’s first international tournament with the France national side, which will be well deserved following his impressive campaign in Ligue 1, which has seen him score 19 and assist eight goals in 35 matches.

Ben Yedder has made just 12 caps for France and has scored two goals and made two assists across these appearances, with his goals coming in two separate matches against Andorra, as well as making his two assists in a 7-1 win against Ukraine in July, despite only featuring for 17 minutes of the friendly match.

Paul Pogba Odds: 25/1

Manchester United player Paul Pogba is the final player on this of those that are in contention to be France’s top scorer at Euro 2021. The United midfielder has scored three goals and made five assists in 24 league matches for the Red Devils this campaign, but, he does often play as a deep-lying playmaker rather than the role of an advanced playmaker next to N’golo Kante in the France setup.

Pogba has scored 10 goals in 78 appearances for the national side, including in the World Cup final against Croatia, which was actually his last goal for France.
