Group A Predictions – A Breeze For Germany?

Group A of Euro 2024 is very exciting as the centerpiece is the powerful German side. On their home pitch surrounded by more experienced teammates, winning is expected to be a piece of cake. Nonetheless, pressure will be high in Nagelsmann, as the young German national team has additional eyes on him, considering they are playing on home soil.

Plus, Germany collapsed early in the last two World Cups, especially two years ago in Qatar where they didn’t even leave the group stage. So, even if we predict Germany to top this group, it is still curious to see if they will underperform again.

However, the real drama comes from the fight for second place among Hungary, Switzerland, and Scotland.

With its national flag held high throughout the competition, Hungary could bring a surprise, with their hopes held on the team’s star, Szoboszlai from Liverpool.

On the other hand, Switzerland has a very good starting eleven that is defensively solid and subtle in attack. Their mixture of experience and youth will be put to a test and although they were embarrassed in last World Cup – exiting in the round of 16 to Portugal after losing 6-1 – never count the Swiss out, at least during the group stage.

Scotland can’t be written off as their playing style reflects the influence of experience and youth as they look to make a lasting impression in the tournament. The Scottish had a very good qualification stage, as they even beat Spain against all odds.

Group B Predictions – The Group of Death

Group B in UEFA 2024 is the pinnacle of a combination of skills and suspense. Italy, as the defending champions, are banking on their reputed defensive technique and tactical supremacy to consolidate their position as the champions again. Nonetheless, Italy has always been a question mark, considering that just after winning the Euros they missed on qualifying to the World Cup.

Meanwhile, Spain, who won the Euros in 2008 and 2012, mix their youthful energy blended with the experience of old players, making them the favorites to take the first place.

Team Croatia, FIFA World Cup finalist in 2018 and semifinalist in 2022, hope to win a national trophy finally. Two years ago, they caused an upset in Qatar as they eliminated tournament favorites Brazil and even though Modric is getting older you can still expect him to boss the midfield.

And then there’s Albania, with a belief that they are underdogs, intend to succeed by pushing themselves to the limit. However, this might be too much for an unexperienced team to make it past the group stage. Either way, Albania can be very proud of their result, making it to their second Euros ever, after being third in Euro 2016 group stage.

Group C Predictions – England Bringing It Home?

Group C’s narrative at Euro 2024 is close to a thriller, with England being tipped as the likely winner, having managed to balance their team with talented youths and seasoned players.

With Jude Bellingham being on an absolute roll in Real Madrid and other young stars like Declan Rice and Marcus Rashford, the English will expect to finally bring it home.

Denmark is a serious candidate for the runner-up position because it has a well-structured and disciplined defense, besides Manchester United’s Rasmus Holjund as a striker.

Regardless, one shouldn’t underestimate Serbia with its talented team who hope to be a considerable challenge to the Danish team. The Serbians had a very good qualifying stage and they have one very powerful duo upfront in Mitrovic and Vlahovic.

Interestingly, while Slovenia may not seem like the strongest contender considering its still relatively average standing compared to the rest of the group.

It still boasts a tenacious team which can alter the group’s dynamics and one of the best goalkeepers in the world, Jan Oblak from Atletico Madrid. Recently Slovenia unsettled Portugal in a friendly, proving they might be an underdog to consider in this tournament.

Group D Predictions – France Should Edge Here

France has the best squad of the tournament, with an array of stars, ready to overrun the competition with their quality.

World Cup winners in 2018 and runners up in 2022, the only glory that is missing to France is conquering the Euros. They were close in 2016, but Portugal’s upset in the final made them miss the trophy.

Nonetheless, with Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann and Marcus Thuram they will pose threats to any defenses, and it is no surprise they are the tournament favorites according to the bookies.

The Netherlands with a reputation for strong defense backed up by Virgil van Dijk, plus the creative playmaker Xavi Simmons, are also confident on getting past the group stage.

Additionally, the Polish team may not be the most recognized, but they still have players like Robert Lewandowski who can make surprises on the pitch. Unfortunately, Poland needed the playoff to qualify to this tournament and with a team considerably relying on old glories, they might be the ones finishing last in this group.

Austria is the other team in this group, and we are expecting them to pull through as one of the best third places. Especially because they have experienced manager Ralf Rangnick, who has put the Austrian team playing entertaining football.

Group E Predictions – Belgium To Impress

Belgium, after the disappointment from the 2022 World Cup performance will be the centerpiece of Group E in Euro 2024. In fact, they still have one of the best teams in the competition and their team has been renovated, with new young starlets expecting to shine, like Manchester City’s Jeremy Doku.

Meanwhile, there’s Slovakia, who have on defender Škriniar their best player. Nonetheless, they do not have a lot of firepower upfront and might struggle to score goals.

Then there’s Romania, underestimated but with some tenacious young stars, striving to keep up with more experienced teams thanks to their strategic vision.

Finally, Ukraine, a nation of warriors, who qualified to this tournament through the playoff. Still, never count off Ukraine, who have creative players like Mykailo Mudryk and one of the strikers in best form this season, Girona’s Artem Dovbyk. We expect Ukraine to qualify from this group, as runner up, with Belgium topping it.
