How Many Teams Will Compete in Euro 2024?

Twenty-four teams will take part in Euro 2024 in Germany. It will be an exciting tournament with 51 matches for sports betting fans on platforms like Betway to predict. UEFA did a magnificent job spreading the matches out to ensure as many fans as possible could watch the games. 

The 24 national teams will be divided into six groups, each with four teams. Each team will face off with the other three teams in its group once, in a round-robin format. After that, the top two teams from each group will move on to the round of 16. The four best third-placed teams will also proceed to the round of 16. 

The 16 teams will play a single elimination round, after which eight teams will qualify for the quarter-finals and four for the semis before the top two teams face off in the grand final. 

EURO 2024 Predictions

Who’ll Win the Golden Boot? 

Football pundits and fans across Europe agree that the battle for the Euro 2024 Golden Boot will be between France’s Kylian Mbappe and England’s Harry Kane. According to the fans and pundits, the two top-rated goal scorers can score more because their teams are among the bookies’ favorites to win the tournament. This means they will play more games and have more opportunities to score goals. 

However, Cristiano Ronaldo fans still believe the player has what it takes to win the Golden Boot. This will be one of the most interesting parts of the tournament for fans and betting fans on Betway to predict. 

Will England Win Euro 2024? 

Gareth Southgate will lead a star-studded squad into the Euro 2024 tournament. England’s squad depth and recent form make them the team most fans feel will win the tournament. Jude Bellingham, Harry Kane, and Phil Foden are the stars expected to propel England to victory. 

However, they will have to overcome France, a perennial football powerhouse. The French also have Kylian Mbappé, one of the best attackers in world football, in their squad. On the other hand, the Germans want to use their home advantage to win the tournament. 

A resurgent Spain is also another team to watch. Finally, the Portuguese are regarded as the tournament’s dark horses. They have an outside chance to win the cup thanks to their star players, Cristiano Ronaldo and Bernardo Silva, who can produce crucial moments of individual brilliance. 

Final Thoughts

The Euro 2024 will undoubtedly be an exciting tournament to watch. With top talents representing their countries, everyone must be on top of their games to win this tournament. Who do you think will have the last laugh?
