Wales vs Denmark Prediction
This summer’s Euro 2020 is now at the business end, with some teams already through to the last-16 of the competition. Two of those teams already qualified, Wales and Denmark face off on Saturday evening at the Amsterdam Arena.
The German team very hard qualified from the group and now will face England and we predict that Germany will be out of the tournament after round of 16.
These teams did not qualify from the group stage and are out of Euro 2021 – Turkey, Russia, Finland, North Macedonia, Scotland, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary.
England in the last 16 will face the Germany team, if they pass through the next opponent will be Sweden – Ukraine match winner.
Italy in the last 16 will face the Austria team, if they pass through the next opponent will be Belgium – Portugal match winner.
The Euro 2021 semi final will be held at Wembley Stadium in London July 6th & 7th.
At the moment Euro 2020 top scorer is Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo, he scored 5 goals.
The Euro 2021 final will be held in Wembley Stadium (London) on July 11th.
Wales finished second in Group A, picking up four points and finishing ahead of third-place Switzerland courtesy of goal difference. Their best performance was in their second group game in a 2-0 win over Turkey. The victory was decisive in booking the Dragons spot in the last-16.
Denmark Euro 2021 have recovered well from the shock of star midfielder Christian Eriksen suffering a cardiac arrest against Finland. Although they lost their first two group games, a 4-1 win over Russia sealed the Danes place in the last 16 of Euro2020. The determination to do well for their stricken teammate seemed to power them to victory.
Wales Denmark prediction is a hard one to call, as neither team is a European superpower, but both have quality players within their ranks that can win games. Unfortunately for Denmark, Eriksen was their talisman. In Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey, Wales have two true match winners.
We believe that despite Denmark’s highly emotional win over Russia, that Wales will record a victory in what could be a hard-fought encounter in the Netherlands capital.
Italy vs Austria Prediction
One of the most impressive teams of Euro 2020 so far has been Italy, who qualified for the last 16 of the competition by winning all three of their games in Group A. Roberto Mancini’s team will now face Austria at Wembley on Saturday night in the first knockout stage of the tournament.
Not only did Italy Euro 2021 finish top of their group, but the Azzurri were also in typically solid form in defense, as they kept clean sheets in all three of their group matches. That statistic may not be surprising though (read this – Understanding Euro 2021 stats), as Italy have now not conceded a goal in their last 11 international outings.
Austria Euro 2021 picked up six points from their two games in Group C, finishing as runners-up to the Netherlands. A 1-0 win over Ukraine in their last group game sealed their historic place in the knockout stages of the competition, as Das Team have never made it beyond the group stages of a European Championships. They arguably could not have asked for a tougher opponent than Italy at this stage of the competition.
Roberto Mancini’s team have shined not just at Euro 2020, but for the last few years under the former Manchester City head coach. While Austria have some quality players, our Italy Austria prediction that the Azzurri will record a victory in a relatively low-scoring encounter.
Netherlands vs Czech Republic Prediction
On Sunday evening, the Netherlands face the Czech Republic in the last-16 of Euro 2020, as both teams are looking to book their place in the last eight of the competition.
Netherlands have looked strong in the competition, winning all three of their games in Group C. Frank de Boer’s team have been prolific going forward so far during Euro 2020, scoring at least two goals in all three of their group games. PSG’s recruit Gino Wijnaldum has scored three times in as many appearances at the European Championships (read this – Euro 2021 Betting Tips)
The Czech Republic qualified for the knockout stages from a group also containing England and Croatia. After a 2-0 first game win over Scotland, they drew 1-1 with Croatia before a 1-0 defeat against England at Wembley.
Striker Patrick Schick has certainly found form in the group stages matching Wijnaldum’s goal tally of three goals in three outings.
The Czech’s have won just two of their last seven international matches. Their recent games have been low-scoring, as five of those seven matches have produced under 2.5 goals scored.
The Netherlands have flattered to deceive at so many tournaments and the Czech Republic are a solid defensive unit. We predict that the Oranje will progress to the last eight of the competition.
Netherlands Czech Republic Prediction: The Netherlands win and both teams to score
Belgium vs Portugal Prediction
In what could be the tie of the last 16 of Euro 2020, Belgium and Portugal go head-to-head in Seville on Sunday night.
Belgium cruised into the last 16 of Euro 2020 by winning all three of their group games while scoring at least two goals in each of the outings. Roberto Martinez’s team also conceded just once in Group B.
The Red Devils golden generation is still very much shining on the international stage. However, they have yet to win silverware for all the quality within their ranks. Euro 2020 may be their best chance of winning a major international competition.
Portugal Euro 2021 finished third in Group F behind France and Germany. The Selecao’s only win of the tournament came in a 3-0 opening game hammering of Hungary. A 2-2 draw against France in their final game ensured the European champions qualified for the last-16.
One player that has shined during Euro 2020 has been evergreen Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored five times in the three group games. The 36-year-old is now the record goal scorer at European Championships, having scored 14 times spanning five tournaments.
Both these teams have quality in abundance and will have went into Euro 2020 expecting to make it to the latter stages of the tournament. However, we predict that Belgium Euro 2021 will come out on top in what should be a highly entertaining encounter.
Belgium Portugal Prediction: Belgium to win and over 2.5 goals scored
Croatia vs Spain Prediction
On Monday evening, Croatia and Spain go face-to-face in Copenhagen in the last-16 of Euro 2020, as both teams look to book their place in the quarter-finals of the competition.
Croatia finished second in Group D, having picked up four points. Zlatko Dalic’s team failed to win either of their first two group games but qualified with a 3-1 win over Scotland in their final match. The victory ended a four-game winless run in all competitions for Croatia.
Their recent matches have been close affairs, with under 2.5 goals scored in four of their last five international games. This game could continue in a similar vein.
A relatively new-look Spain Euro 2021 looked lacklustre in their opening two games in Group E, before recording a 5-0 victory over Slovakia. The five points saw La Roja Furia finish second place in their group, with Sweden finishing top.
Luis Enrique’s team seem to have found a better balance in their last group game. They are favourites to progress, but can’t afford to revert to the lacklustre displays of their opening two group games in the competition.
Neither team has taken the tournament by storm so far. However, Spain did enough in their last group match to suggest they could be improving, so we are backing La Roja Furia to record a victory in a low-scoring encounter.
Croatia Spain Prediction: Spain to win and under 2.5 goals scored
France vs Switzerland Prediction
On Monday night, France and Switzerland clash in the last 16 of Euro 2020, with the world champions big favourites to make it through to Euro 21 quarter finals of the competition.
World champions France have maintained their status as one of the favourites to become European champions, despite winning just one of their three games Group F of Euro 2020. A 1-0 win over Germany was followed by draws with Hungary and Portugal. There is a sense that there is still much more to come from Didier Deschamps’ team in the competition.
Switzerland Euro 2021 endured mixed fortunes in Group A, finishing third in the group after picking up four points. After failing to win either of their first two group games, Vladimir Petkovic’s team booked their place in the last-16 by recording a 3-1 win over Turkey.
In truth, they look to have a major task on their hands to qualify for Euro 2021 quarter final and will have to up their game if they are to progress past the world champions.
France Euro 2021 have the talent to go up a gear or two and we predict that they will have too much quality for Switzerland in this clash. France’s recent matches have been relatively open, so there could be goals in this one.
France Switzerland Prediction: France to win and over 2.5 goals scored
England vs Germany Prediction
On Tuesday evening, two of the biggest rivals in European football go head-to-head at Wembley in the last-16 of Euro2020, as England host Germany.
England Euro 2021 booked their place in the last-16 by picking up seven points from their three group games. The Three Lions got through the opening stages of the competition by keeping three clean sheets. Gareth Southgate’s team has been functional rather than fancy in their games so far at Euro 2020.
Their strong defensive record has not just started during the current competition, as England have now kept clean sheets in seven of their last eight international matches.
Germany could not have endured a more mixed group campaign if they tried, as they picked up just four points from their three matches. Joachim Low’s team needed a late Leon Goretzka goal to salvage a 2-2 draw against Hungary.
Die Mannschaft are in a transitional stage and the current team is certainly not of the usual vintage of a Germany team at an international. However, Germany Euro 2021 have a habit of pulling off a result when they have to. Whether they can do that at Wembley only time will tell.
England have looked solid and hard to beat at Euro 2020, while Germany have been unpredictable. The Three Lions are unlikely to give Low’s team the same chances as their last two opponents. We predict that England will record a narrow win in a tight clash.
England Germany Prediction: England to win and under 2.5 goals scored
Sweden vs Ukraine Prediction
On Tuesday night, Sweden and Ukraine face off in the last 16 of Euro 2020, with both believing they can make it into the last eight of the competition.
Sweden Euro 2021 finished top of Group E ahead of Spain, picking up seven points from their three group games. Janne Andersson’s team kept clean sheets against Spain and Slovakia before finishing the group with a 3-2 win over Poland.
As always, the Blagult have been well organised in defence in the group stages. However, at the other end of the pitch, RB Leipzig winger Emil Forsberg has offered them an attacking threat, scoring three times in as many appearances in Group E.
Ukraine Euro 2021 were the only team to finish the group stages with just three points and qualify for the last-16, as Andrey Shevchenko’s team finished third in Group C behind the Netherlands and Austria. Their only victory in the group stage of the tournament came in a 2-1 win over group whipping boys North Macedonia.
Despite their relative struggles in the group stages, Ukraine will feel that the draw could have been harsher on them, as Sweden are certainly not one of Europe’s footballing superpowers.
Sweden are resolute defensively and offered a decent attacking threat on the break in the group stages in Forsberg and wunderkind Alexander Isak. We are backing Andersson’s team to record a narrow win in a low-scoring match.
Sweden Ukraine Prediction: Sweden to win and under 2.5 goals scored

France vs Spain Prediction
The world champions have not been at their best and have yet to really shine during Euro 2020. However, there is immense quality in their squad. Spain struggled in their opening two games but hammered Slovakia in their last outing.
Prediction: France to win and over 2.5 goals scored
Belgium vs Italy Prediction
This is a clash between the highest-ranked team in world football and one of the most impressive teams at Euro 2020. Both teams won all their group games and will be in confident mood having progressed this far.
Prediction: Belgium to win and over 2.5 goals
Netherlands vs Wales Prediction
Netherlands impressed by topping Group C, winning all their games. Some have them as dark horses to win the tournament. Wales have shown immense heart and spirit, while also showing quality through the likes of Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey. However, we believe that the Oranje will have too much quality for the Dragons.
Prediction: Netherlands to win and both teams to score
Sweden vs England Prediction
Euro quarter final 2021 would be a massive opportunity for England’s undoubtedly talented squad to make their mark on an international tournament. However, Sweden will not be an easy opponent. With this in mind, we predict a narrow win for Gareth Southgate’s team in Rome.
Prediction: England to win and under 2.5 goals scored
Euro 2020 Semi-final Prediction
Belgium vs France Prediction
This meeting would be massive for both teams and would maybe be the game of the tournament. Both have squads of highly talented players. We predict that France would shade the game and make a second successive appearance in a European Championship final.
Prediction: France to win and over 2.5 goals scored
England vs Netherlands Prediction
Both teams finished the group stage unbeaten and will be eying the trophy at the semi final Euro 2021 stage. England have looked defensively solid, while Netherlands have sparkle going forward. This will be a tight one, but we are favouring the Three Lions to record a win in a close clash.
Prediction: England to win and over 2.5 goals scored
England vs France Final prediction
France made it to the final of Euro 2016 on home soil only to suffer a 1-0 defeat in extra-time against Portugal. We predict that they will go one step better by recording a victory in a relatively tight game against Gareth Southgate’s team to become European champions.
Prediction: France to win and under 2.5 goals scored
