There are 55 nations taking part in qualifying for the tournament next summer, with Kosovo participating for the very first time. The nations have been split into 10 groups – five contain five teams and five contain six teams. The seeding was based on the overall ranking of the 2018-19 Nations League. The four Nations League semi-finalists (England, Switzerland, Portugal and Netherlands) were guaranteed to be drawn in a group of five teams, allowing them to play their semi-finals in summer 2019.
The top two teams from each group qualify for Euro 2020.
Once the group stages have finished, there will be 20 teams qualified and four spaces remaining – these will be decided by the play-offs. These teams will not be the highest placed group losers as in previous years, but the 16 best performing teams from the Nations League, they will be divided into four paths, the winner of each path will get one of the remaining places at Euro 2020. Each path will have a two-legged semi-final and a one-legged final.
Group A: England, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Kosovo.
Group B: Portugal, Ukraine, Serbia, Lithuania, Luxembourg.
Group C: Netherlands, Germany, Northern Ireland, Estonia, Belarus.
Group D: Switzerland, Denmark, Republic of Ireland, Georgia, Gibraltar.
Group E: Croatia, Wales, Slovakia, Hungary, Azerbaijan.
Group F: Spain, Sweden, Norway, Romania, Faroe Islands, Malta.
Group G: Poland, Austria, Israel, Slovenia, Macedonia, Latvia.
Group H: France, Iceland, Turkey, Albania, Moldova, Andorra.
Group I: Belgium, Russia, Scotland, Cyprus, Kazakhstan, San Marino.
Group J: Italy, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Finland, Greece, Armenia, Liechtenstein.

At this time, France are favourites to win the 2020 European Championships in the latest betting odds. You will get 7/2 with bet365 for them to win. England’s odds to win Euro 2020 are 11/2 with 888Sport but the best odds you’d get with most other bookies is 9/2 so after their brilliant World Cup campaign, the bookies are expecting Gareth Southgate’s side to have another strong tournament. It remains to be seen if this England squad is good enough to win Euro 2020.
Spain are always there or thereabouts in major tournaments but will have been disappointed to crash out of the 2018 World Cup to hosts Russia. They lost on penalties there and the current odds for Spain to win Euro 2020 are 8/1 with Unibet.
One team who perhaps deserved better at the World Cup were Roberto Martinez’ Belgium side. They lost to Brazil in the semi-finals and at this early stage, they’d be our Euro 2020 betting prediction to win the tournament. We predicted for them to win the Nations League but were shocked by Switzerland to miss out on the semi-finals and there is a worry they don’t have the steel to get through high-pressure matches.
BELGIUM TO WIN EURO 2020 – 7/1 with Betfred.
