A traditional powerhouse of European football, Germany ranks highly among the favorites for winning Euro 2020 in bookmakers. Having lifted the trophy three times and three more as a runner-up, the Mannschaft is one of the most successful teams. In Joachim Löw’s swan song, Germany boasts an experienced team and wants to make up for the disappointment in World Cup 2018. With Neuer, Gundogan and Werner at the forefront, it is no strange that Germany accumulates a large number of wagers as the next winner.
Our Germany Euro 2020 article will review the team, the fixtures, and the likely tactics followed in detail. Up-to-date odds from top sportsbooks are also on the menu at Bookmakers.bet. These include prices for the ‘’Group of death’’ against France, Portugal and Hungary to outright ones for reaching the knockout phases and the final.
Germany Euro 2021 Odds & Predictions
The Mannschaft is the fourth most likely team to win the Euro 2020 on average. The odds fluctuate around 8.50 (15/2) behind England, France and Belgium. While Germany usually is the top-favorite in most competitions, a recent run of poor displays affected the prices. The 2018 World Cup was a disaster, with Germany finishing last in the group stage. In the UEFA Nations League in November 2020, Spain thrashed Germany with 6-0. These performances have also made Germany fall to an unusual 12th place in FIFA World Ranking.
So, can the Germany team in Euro 2020 turn things around? The skill and the experience are certainly there. Moreover, Allianz Arena in Munich will host all the home matches of Löw’s team, giving them a significant boost. The quarter-final will also take place at Bayern’s home turf, adding an extra incentive for reaching far in the competition. The federal government in the country has not yet disclosed if it will allow fans in the stadium. Still, playing at home is undoubtedly a benefit.

Germany Euro 2020 Fixtures & Schedule
Euro 2020 Germany Group F is also known as the ‘’Group of Death’’. The reason is that it contains World Cup holders France, defending European champions Portugal and Hungary. As said above, playing at home is an advantage. However, when playing against such strong opponents, it might fizzle out. Still, it is a joint favorite to win the Group with France at 2.38 (11/8), with Portugal at 3.60 (13/5) and Hungary at 23.00 (22/1).
Moreover, it is crucial to notice the pairings in the knockout phase. If Germany finishes second, it will most likely play against England, a formidable adversary. But if it finishes as one of the best four third-placed teams, it could play against the Netherlands. To cover all cases, if Germany ends first, it will face off against the third-best teams from Groups A, B, or C. In the following table, you will come across Euro 2020 Germany Group fixtures and the possible outlines in the Round of 16.
|Germany's Group Matches||Date||Venue|
|France vs. Germany||15th June 2021 / 21:00 CET||Allianz Arena, Munich|
|Portugal vs. Germany||19th June 2021 / 18:00 CET||Allianz Arena, Munich|
|Germany vs. Hungary||23rd June 2021 / 21:00 CET||Allianz Arena, Munich|
Can Germany win Group F

⏩ Το Win Group @2.38 (11/8) odds
⏩ To Qualify Group @1.06 (1/10) odds.
⏩ To Place 2nd @ 2.88 (15/8) odds.
⏩ Not to Qualify Group @10.00 (9/1) odds.
You can also find out all the possible pairings in the knockout phase, respective of the position Germany will finish at the Group.
|Germany'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.
We can point out that the first place will give the most unchallenging opponent (like Turkey, Russia or Austria), at least on paper. But then it gets tricky. If Germany ends up in second place, England is the heavy favorite to wait in the Round of 16. As the Three Lions are also favorites for winning Euro 2020, it is not a desirable pairing for the Mannschaft. A third-place finish provided that it will be among the best four of the six groups could pair Germany with the Netherlands. While it will be no walk in the park, it seems like a much more preferred choice than England.
✔️Our prediction: The highest betting value can be found in Germany finishing first in the Group at 2.38 (11/8). The reason being to avoid England in the Round of 16 and the potential risk of chasing one of the best four third-placed teams.
What odds & bets bookies offer for Germany
Every time it lifted a major trophy, the biggest weapon of Germany has been a well-balanced team. That means that it integrated good units into a decent lineup. Even if some players stood out in terms of quality, they put ego down to fulfill the team duties. So, this year, the question is ‘’Can Germany win Euro 2020’’? That can happen as long as some conditions are met.
First and foremost, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz have to leave behind struggling at Chelsea. Being two of the most expensive signings in the club’s history, they had a season of ups and downs. Still, they are vital elements of the lineup and Joachim Löw’s plan. Werner stands at a lucrative 21.00 (20/1) for being the top goalscorer of Euro 2020. It is worth noting that he has scored 15 goals in 38 international caps, a good performance.
İlkay Gündoğan has an excellent season with Manchester City as a commanding midfielder. If he plays at the same standard, Germany has a good chance of going to the end. Should that happen, Gündoğan has odds of 67.00 (66/1) for being the UEFA Best Player of the tournament. Moreover, Manuel Neuer acts like a guarantor of the goalpost. The definition of the ‘’sweeper-keeper’’ has to put on some good displays and stop the likes of Mbappe, Ronaldo and Kane.
✔️Our prediction: Germany has the skill and the experience to aim at reaching the final. Such an outcome pays at 8.5 (15/2), the same odds for lifting the trophy, with less risk.

On May 19, Joachim Löw confirmed his 26-man squad for the Euro 2020. No big surprises, aside from the fact that Thomas Muller and Mats Hummels are included, after all. There was some speculation if Löw will call up these players. Every other big name is included in the list. Feel free to check it out:
|GK||Manuel Neuer||35||99||0||Bayern Munich|
|GK||Kevin Trapp||30||5||0||Eintracht Frankfurt|

|MF||Leon Goretzka||26||32||13||Bayern Munich|
|MF||İlkay Gündoğan||30||45||10||Manchester City|

The Key Players & Tactics
The Mannschaft has the cream of the crop in terms of midfielders. İlkay Gündoğan, Kai Havertz, Leroy Sané, Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka comprise a fearful midfield line, ready to dominate. Gündoğan and Kimmich are the steam engines at Man City and Bayern Munich, coming from great seasons. Sané faced some rough times after moving to Munich but soon became a regular. Joachim Löw rotated between 4-3-3 and 3-5-2 in the World Cup Qualifiers. The latter was used in the shock defeat from North Macedonia on March 31, 2021. Manuel Neuer is the towering figure in defense, assisted by Antonio Rüdiger, Emre Can and Matthias Ginter. The attacking line is the biggest question and can make or break Germany’s chances of success. Timo Werner, Serge Gnabry and Amin Younes look great on paper but had mediocre seasons. Gnabry, in particular, has odds of 17.00 (16/1) for being the Top Goalscorer of the tournament. That could be a good opportunity considering the fact he has scored 15 goals in 20 international appearances.
The Probable Lineup
The most pressing issue for the Germany team in Euro 2020 is the forward line. Serge Gnabry seems to be the selected starter, with Sané and Havertz on the wings. However, there could be a replacement at the top with Werner. Gündoğan, Kimmich and Goretzka will fill up the midfield with Musiala and Neuhaus coming from the bench. The latter two had breakthrough seasons, with Bayern Munich and Mönchengladbach giving extra quality solutions to Löw. They both debuted to the Mannschaft this season, with immediate impact. Emre Can, Antonio Rüdiger Matthias Ginter and Lukas Klostermann are the likely defensive line with Manuel Neuer under the goalposts.
The longest-serving national team manager, Joachim Löw, has completed 15 years at the wheel of the German national football team. Reaching his apex by winning the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, he is undoubtedly one of the most successful coaches ever. Euro 2020 will be the last competition for him as Germany’s manager. Since March 9, 2021, he has already announced that he will step down after the tournament is over. Since his appointment in 2006, after two years as an assistant coach, he has 122 wins in 192 matches. With Löw at the helm, Germany has a string of successes. Semi-finals in the 2010 World Cup, Euro 2012, Euro 2016 and the Final in the Euro 2008. This year the manager from Schönau im Schwarzwald wants to leave at the top.
