Euros: Group A odds, tips, predictions, teams and fixtures

Hosts Germany, hoping to go all the way on home soil at this summer’s Euros, have been drawn alongside Hungary, Switzerland and Scotland in Group A.

While Julian Nagelsmann’s side are 2/5 to top the pool, the runners-up spot seems to be wide open with Scotland, Switzerland and Hungary all vying for second place.

Euro 2024 Group A betting tips and predictions

Hungary to qualify from Group A - 4/6

With only eight of the 24 teams eliminated at the group stage, there is a very real chance for the third-place team in Group A to make it to the last 16 and Hungary are heading to Germany in fine form.

Marco Rossi’s side are unbeaten since a September 2022 UEFA Nations League loss to Italy, and they have won nine of their 14 international games since.

This includes home and away victories over Serbia last year and a 1-0 win over Turkey during the last international break, while they pulled off home and away victories over England in the summer of 2022 and then beat Germany away from home just a few months later.

Top spot may be beyond the third-favourites in Group A, but they certainly look like they have the potential to make the knockout stages in Germany.

The Magyars have a strong spine in the prime of their careers for this European adventure, with Attila Szalai at the back, Liverpool star Dominik Szoboszlai captaining the team, and Freiburg’s Roland Sallai in attack.

Group A rivals Scotland head to the pre-tournament friendlies having drawn two and lost five of their last seven games and second-favourites Switzerland have only won two of their last nine, leaving Hungary as the best option to finish runner-up.

Euro 2024 Group A route to the final

The winner of Group A would line up in the second last-16 tie on Saturday 29th June against the runner-up of Group C, which consists of Slovenia, Denmark, Serbia, and England.

The winner of that tie would then head to Stuttgart, potentially pitting them against the winner of the tough Group B, with Spain and Italy being the leading candidates there. A semi-final in Munich against the Netherlands or Portugal could await the Group A winner should they navigate through the quarter-finals.

Unusually, the runner-up in Group A does not have to face a group winner in the last 16, instead lining up against the runner-up of Group B. Unfortunately for the second-placed side, Group B happens to contain European heavyweights Spain and Italy, along with Croatia and Albania, with the most likely outcome being a meeting between Italy and Switzerland.

Should the second-placed side get past the last-16 stage, they could find themselves pitted against the winner of Group D. The favourites for that mantle are England, meaning there is the possibility of an England v Scotland quarter-final.
