France Euro 2021 Odds & Predictions 

France Euro 2020 Odds & Predictions The current World Cup holders are heavily favored in every sportsbook. With odds around 6.00 (5/1), they rank first with England. That comes after scoring some successful runs in the last few years. First, Les Bleus reached the final in Euro 2016, where they lost to Portugal. Two years later, they won the World Cup in Russia by defeating Croatia. Adding some world-class players in the mix, it is no strange that bettors love to wager on France.

So, how likely is it for the France Euro 2020 squad to emerge victorious again? A challenging part of the tournament will be the initial stage. Group F has also drawn Germany, Portugal and Hungary. France will play no matches at home (including France vs. Germany Euro 2020 game). One defeat by the Mannschaft or Portugal will pair Les Bleus with England in the knockout phase. Therefore, Deschamps’ players have every reason to push for first place. Read on for our best picks and predictions for the France group in Euro 2020 and more.

✔️Group F ⏩ France to finish 1st @2.37 (11/8) odds
✔️Top Goalscorer of Euro 2020⏩ Kylian Mbappe @8.00 (7/1) odds

France Euro 2020 Fixtures & Schedule 

France Euro 2020 Fixtures & Schedule The most challenging group of the tournament draws together France, Germany, Portugal and Hungary. Group F or ‘’Group of Death’’ has three teams fighting for the top spot with almost equal chances. Apart from France, Germany and Portugal are also favorites for reaching the latter stages of the competition. Les Bleus will play two matches in Budapest and one in Munich, while the Germans will play all games at home. That could prove crucial, but the quality in the France Euro 2020 team can balance it out. Germany and France are joint favorites for first place at 2.40 (7/5) odds, with Portugal at 4.50 (7/2) and Hungary at 41.00 (40/1).

Another essential factor to look into is the pairings in the first knockout phase. If France finishes first, it will face one of the third best-placed Groups A, B, or C teams. But it finishes second; the chances are that it will fight against England for a spot at the quarter-finals. A third-place finish does also not look preferable as it will pair France most likely with the Netherlands or Belgium. Check the fixtures of the France group in Euro 2020 in the table below.

France's Group Matches Date Venue
France vs. Germany 15th June 2021 / 21:00 CET Allianz Arena, Munich
Hungary vs. France 19th June 2021 / 15:00 CET Puskas Arena, Budapest
Portugal vs. France 23rd June 2021 / 21:00 CET Puskas Arena, Budapest

Can France win Group F 

Can France win Group F It most certainly can, according to bookies. While it is in the most competitive group of the tournament, France aims at winning the Euro. Hence, first place in Group F is feasible. The latest odds for Deschamps’ squad are the following.

To Win Group @2.40 (7/5)
To Qualify Group @1.12 (1/8)
To Place 2nd @2.88 (15/8)
Not to Qualify Group @7.50 (13/2)

red arrowBefore placing your bet, you must get familiar with the pairings in the knockout phase—we layout all matchups, respective of France’s position in Group F.

France's Group Place Last-16 Probable Opponents
1st 3rd place Group A (Italy, Turkey, Wales, Switzerland) / 3rd place Group B (Denmark, Finland, Belgium, Russia) / 3rd place Group C (Netherlands, Ukraine, Austria, North Macedonia)
2nd Winner Group D (England, Croatia, Scotland, Czech Republic)
3rd* Winner Group B (Denmark, Finland, Belgium, Russia) / Winner Group C (Netherlands, Ukraine, Austria, North Macedonia)

*If Group F gives one of the best 3rd-placed teams to advance to the Last-16.

The road to the latter stages of Euro 2020 could be a little complicated for the French. A first-place finish will mean the easiest opponent in the Round of 16 (at least on paper). But a second-place finish will pair Les Bles with the Group D winner, most likely England. That means that the two biggest favorites of winning the tournament will meet pretty early. And there could also be a third-place finish, provided that it will be among the four best-placed teams. In such a case, the France Euro 2020 team will play against Belgium or the Netherlands. Again a non-favorable outcome.

✔️Our prediction: France has one goal in mind, to win the Euro 2020. The easiest way to do it is by finishing first in Group F. The odds of such a selection are 2.40 (7/5).

What odds & bets bookies offer for France 

What odds & bets bookies offer for France Every sportsbook is convinced that in Euro 2020, France will dominate and that reflects in the odds. With world-class players in every position, that can turn out to be true. Moreover, in the last two major tournaments in the previous five years, Les Bleus indeed had great performances. And the same core of players will represent France in this competition, too.

The player-to-watch will be no other than Kylian Mbappe (42 caps, 16 goals). The PSG striker has been in phenomenal form this year, scoring 41 goals. The hat-trick against Barcelona in Camp Nou is the highlight of his season. He also led Les Parisiens to the semi-finals of the Champions League and the final in the previous season. Mbappe pays at 8.00 (7/1) odds for being the top goalscorer of the tournament.

N’Golo Kante (45 caps) is the mastermind in the French midfield. Coming from a very successful season with Chelsea, reaching the Champions League final, he wants to pick up where he left off. Against Real Madrid in the semi-finals, Kante dominated the game and was the undisputed MVP of both legs. If France wins the trophy, he could be the UEFA Best Player of the tournament. At 41.00 (40/1), it could be a high-value gem.

✔️Our prediction: Anything less than winning the tournament could be deemed a failure for the France Euro 2020 squad. Bettors and bookmakers think the same; hence they heavily favor France. Odds of 6.00 (5/1) might seem low, but you can place a combo bet of France winning the trophy and Mbappe being the top goalscorer. At a lucrative 21.00 (20/1), it could be worth a shot.

The Key Players & Tactics 

The Key Players & Tactics It is hard to find a weakness in the French team, and that applies to every line. Top players fill every position, and that begins with Hugo Lloris under the goalpost. Raphael Varane and Presnel Kimpembe preside in defense, while Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante coordinate the plays and connect the lines. Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann on the attack will give a hard time to anyone trying to stop them.

In the latest fixtures of 2022 World Cup Qualifiers, Deschamps switched from a 4-4-2 to a 4-2-3-1.  Les Bleus struggled in all three matches with a draw against Ukraine and two close victories against Kazakhstan and Bosnia. The manager rotated many players in and out, and in every game, he deployed a different lineup. However, it seems that he has made up his mind for the final lineup.

The Probable Lineup 

The Probable Lineup According to the latest reports, Deschamps will opt for a 4-4-2 formation in the France Euro 2020 squad. Lloris will be the goalkeeper, and Varane & Kimpembe will be the center-backs. Benjamin Pavard and Lucas Hernandez will cover the right and left of the defensive line. Paul Pogba, N’Golo Kante, Kingsley Coman, and Thomas Lemar will fill up the spots in the midfield. Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann are the staples in the forward line. France is also rich in solutions on the bench. Players like Adrien Rabiot, Olivier Giroud, Kurt Zouma and Karim Benzema could be starters in any other team.

The Manager 

The Manager Didier Deschamps has been at the helm of France since 2012. Aside from one of the longest-serving managers in the country’s history, he is one of the most successful ones, too. The 2018 World Cup win culminated a great run that also included the final in Euro 2016. Being a hugely decorated defensive midfielder,  he has won the Champions League with Marseille and Juventus. Moreover, as the captain of France, he led the team to victories in the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000. Deschamps is one of the three men who have won the World Cup as a player and manager. In 111 matches as head coach of Les Bleus, he has scored 73 victories, 20 draws and 18 losses. France Euro 2020 squad has enormous expectations this year, but Deschamps has proved that he can deliver.
