Sports are entertaining and people love watching or listening to sports broadcasts. Some prefer their favorite sports streamed, because they can rewatch the matches should they feel like it. Regardless of the way the media is broadcast, sports are entertaining, for athletes, fans and even bookmakers.
Whenever a large event in sports is supposed to take place, everybody involved in the sport gets a tad bit more excited. For example, the 2020 Euros will be a very competitive and interesting event. For starters, it will be the first of its kind to be held in 12 different countries, due to the 60th anniversary of the Euros. Bookmakers are already making predictions for it and punters are looking up promotional codes and bonuses, like betbonus.co.ug.
Speaking of predictions, like every tournament, the 2020 Euros have their favorites, to win it all, to make upsets, as well as teams which might not be in the limelight, but are expected to prove competitive. Here are the 2020 Euro favorites.
Being the world champions in 2018 gives them a large edge. Why? Because they kept most of their roster the same. A roster which played well 2 years ago should do well again. If they happen to win the 2020 Euros, though, they will get to hold the World Cup title and the Euros title, once more. They did it previously at the 1998 World Cup and the 2000 Euros. Germany and Spain have three Euros titles, each, with France lagging behind a single title. If they were to win, they would tie with Spain and Germany with 3 titles, each.
Belgium is looking like a solid competitor for the title. They have star players like Eden Hazard, De Bruyne and Lukaku. Their roster is looking really good and they might prove to be great competitors for the 2020 Euros title. Multiple bookmakers have ranked the Belgian national team high, some even first, better than France.
Spain had a terrible showing at the 2018 World Cup. Spain, however, won two consecutive Euros in a row, the 2008 and 2012 ones. They are the only country to have ever done so. That being said, they are somewhat in better form than they had been at the 2018 World Cup. They might get better results than at the previous major tournament.
The Netherlands failed to qualify for the previous two major tournaments, making it their appearance now something worth noticing. They do, however, have great players who will most likely do their best to prove that Netherlands has what it takes to play football at the highest level.
Ah, the big question. How will England fare at the 2020 Euros? England are actually considered favorites to win it all, up there with Belgium and France. Their players are on point and Gareth Southgate, has proven to be a good leader, guiding the team properly. With the finals being played at Wembley stadium, should England get there, it will be quite a moment in their history of football.
Football always has its surprises. Italy, Portugal, Poland, Croatia and Denmark are also in the eyes of the bookmakers, as serious contenders to the throne. Keep in mind, though, that nobody expected Greece to take the 2004 Euros, so we might be in for more surprises.
