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

Group E of the Euro 2024 looks like being one of the weakest on paper with Belgium expected to take centre stage in a section featuring Slovakia, Romania and Ukraine.

However, that may only make it more intriguing as those three nations will all fancy their chances of at least chasing the Red Devils through in the knockout stages.

Belgium, now managed by Domenico Tedesco following Roberto Martínez’s exit, made the quarter-finals at Euro 2016 and 2020 and are 2/5 to top the section and are 16/1 to go all the way.

Group E betting tips and predictions

Group E Forecast - Belgium 1st, Ukraine 2nd - 9/4

Belgium look a class apart

Belgium have flattered to deceive down the years given the talent they have had at their disposal, but there is some fresh blood coming through their ranks.

Manchester City’s midfield maestro Kevin De Bruyne and Roma’s Romelu Lukaku remain integral parts of the team while they are backed up by a world-class goalkeeper in Madrid shot-stopper Thibaut Courtois.

The days of Eden Hazard may be no longer and defensively they still have room for veteran Jan Vertonghen, but that shouldn’t stop them winning this section.

With Arsenal ace Leandro Trossard, De Bruyne’s teammate Jeremy Doku, Everton’s Amadou Onana and Aston Villa’s Youri Tielemans providing plenty of Premier League quality, it is hard to knock their Group E prospects.

Belgium showed their capabilities when holding England to a 2-2 draw at Wembley in a friendly at the end of March and they remain unbeaten in 12 games since the appointment of Tedesco.

Many felt things had become stale under Martinez, whose chance to deliver major silverware had been and gone, whereas Tedesco is a young and hungry manager keen to impress after his failings at RB Leipzig.

Ukraine can play second fiddle

Although they had to come through the play-offs to seal their spot at Euro 2024, Ukraine can count themselves pretty unfortunate as they landed in a horror group featuring England and Italy.

Despite that, Ukraine did themselves proud, finishing level with Italy on 14 points from six games and only having a worse head-to-head record and goal difference than the Azzurri.

The Ukrainians' only two defeats came away at England (2-0) and Italy (2-1) but their home games were also played on neutral soil, in which they held those two heavyweight nations to draws.

That shows their capabilities and, having come past Bosnia and Iceland in the play-offs, they should fancy having the edge on Romania and Slovakia for second.

In Arsenal’s Oleksandr Zinchenko and Chelsea’s Mykhailo Mudryk, they have two potential match-winners and that could make all the difference.

Romania were strong in qualifying but this is their first appearance in the Euros since 2016 while Slovakia have plenty to improve upon after exiting in the group stage in 2020.

Group E route to the final

In the last-16 stage, the Group E winners will face a third-placed team from either Group A, B, C or D and the winner of Group D, which judging by the betting looks set to be either France or the Netherlands, or runner-up from Group F will be lurking in the quarter-final.

The runner-up from Group E will be in line to face the runner-up from Group D, which will be one of France, Netherlands, Poland or Austria in what looks one of the most competitive groups on paper.

If coming through that test, the Group E runners-up would be most likely to meet the winner Group F, with Portugal the most feared nation hailing from that section.
