Group A :
Host Venues: Rome, Italy, and Baku, Azerbaijan
Turkey and Italy from Group A will begin the championship from Group A in Rome. One of the favorite teams from Group A is Italy to perform in the 16th Round taking advantage of the home ground.
Turkey on the other hand will have two games in Azerbaijan. One can’t ignore Wales from Group A which showcased stellar performance by Aaron Ramsey and Gareth Bale four years ago by reaching the semi-finals. Switzerland the fourth team from the group also stands out for its compact defense with losing only a single game n a qualifying match.
Host Venues: Copenhagen, Denmark, and Saint Petersburg, Russia
Belgium, the top-ranking team of FIFA are the favorites to progress in the first place. The team is currently placed with strong players like Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne, and Romelu Lukaku.
Russia is also one of the top contenders from Group B which had surprised many in the 2018 World Cup raising hopes for the next summer championship.
With strong support from attendance and an unbeaten qualifying round, Denmark is pretty much confident thereby grabbing the second spot in the group behind Switzerland. Finland is too ready to amaze and surprise the opponent which they had showed earlier by taking over France in the November International break.
Group C :
• North Macedonia
Host Venues: Amsterdam, Netherlands, and Bucharest, Romania
With the appointment of Frank de Boer’s after Ronald Koeman took the Barcelona job, Netherlands has once again turned the attention after losing the game in the qualifying round for the last world cup.
Group C has one team, Ukraine that has enhanced the defending European Championship and Nations League champions Portugal in the qualifying round, finishing the group unbeaten. The team has also knocked down Spain with their thrifty defense.
With the likes of key player David Alaba, Austria is keen to get out of the Group stage for the first time in history. North Macedonia is also standing high with their qualification for the first time in the major tournament finals.
Group D :
• Czech Republic
Host Venues: London, England, and Glasgow, Scotland
England is the favorite of Group D, for having talented young players. Croatia also impressed everyone in the last championship by ending their world cup dream at the semi-final stage against strong contender Russia.
Scotland will be looking to smash their group opponents which are appearing in their first major tournament since 1998. After recording the worst defeat in the history against strong opponent England in a qualifying match just 20 months ago, the Czech Republic is all set to grab the opportunity in the upcoming Euro 2020 championship.
Group E :
Host Venues: Bilbao, Spain, and Dublin, Republic of Ireland
Spain has so far registered only one win in their last four matches, however, the squad is working hard with preparations and are focused on the upcoming championship.
The second spot from the group teams is likely to be filled by either Sweden or Poland. Poland missed by only five points in the qualifying round, whereas the Swedes almost conquered the 2008 and 2012 championships in Solna against Spain.
Group F :
Host Venues: Munich, Germany and Budapest, Hungary
Of all the groups introduced so far, Group F holds top-performing teams France, Germany, and Portugal which have won every major tournament since 2014. All eyes are on the former world champions France, which posses some of the world’s best players Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann, and Paul Pogba. Joao Felix, Diogo Jota, and Cristiano Ronaldo are once again ready to pull their team Portugal into the top at the Euro 2020 championship.
Hungary tried hard to eliminate the group team Portugal in the 2016 group stage, but this time it looks tedious task for them to outperform their key player Cristiano Ronaldo.
