Spain odds: To win Euro 2020, how far will they go, top scorer and more
Spain will be hoping they can bounce back at Euro 2020 this summer after their defeat in the Round of 16 at the 2018 World Cup to hosts Russia.
Now nine years on from their last major tournament win, Spain will be bidding to establish themselves at the top of international football once more as they look to recreate their heroics of 2012.
Since Spain won three major tournaments on the spin between 2008 and 2012, they’ve endured group-stage elimination at the 2014 World Cup and back-to-back Round of 32 exits at the subsequent major finals. La Furia Roja topped their qualifying group comfortably without losing a match, drawing just two of their 10 games.
Although the Spaniards may not enter the competition with the same confidence as of teams gone by, they are still up there with the favourites with the bookies. But just how well can they do?
Spain Euro 2020 odds
The three-time Euros winners are certainly in the frame, but it is England and France who are the current joint-favourites to lift the trophy in July.
Spain may not be the footballing powerhouse they were a decade ago, but their mix of youth and experience has gathered a level of excitement amongst fans. Luis Enrique has not managed his Spain side at a major finals yet, however, England fans will remember the time he led his side to a 2-1 win over the Three Lions at Wembley Stadium. The Spaniards will be wary of Sweden, who came second in their qualifying group, and a potentially dangerous Polish side spearheaded by Robert Lewandowski.
Spain’s potential path to Euro 2020 final
As winners of their qualifying group, Spain were placed into Pot 1 for the Euro 2020 draw and immediately put into Group E. Joining them are qualifying rivals Sweden, potential dark horses Poland and outsiders of the group Slovakia.
Spain kick off their Euro 2020 group stage against Sweden, before games against Poland and then Slovakia. They will play all their group fixtures in Seville.

If Spain win Group E
If Spain were to win Group E, this would be their route through to the final.
Last 16: Thethird-placed side Group A/B/C/D(likely contenders for which are Wales, Turkey, Switzerland, Russia, Denmark, Ukraine, Austria) in Glasgow on June 29.
Quarter-finals: The winner of Last-16 match 7, which is played between the winner of Group D (England favourites) and theGroup F runners-up (Hungary, Portugal, France or Germany).
Semi-finals:Likely the winner of Group C (The Netherlands expected) or the runners-up from Group A/B (likely contenders are Turkey, Wales, Switzerland, Denmark, Russia).
If Spain qualify from Group E
If Spain don’t win Group E, and merely qualify as they are 1/50 to do with Sky Bet, it could become a lot more complicated.
Last 16: The second-placed Group D side, which could be any of England, Croatia, Scotland or Czech Republic in Copenhagen on June 28th.
Quarter Finals: The winner of Last-16 match 6, which is played between the winner of Group F (which includes Portugal, Germany and France) and the third place in A, B or C, likely contenders for which are Wales, Turkey, Switzerland, Russia, Denmark, Ukraine and Austria.
Semi-finals: The winner of that Quarter Final will play the winner of Quarter Final Match 1, which would most likely include the winner of Group A or Group B (expected to be Italy and Belgium, respectively).
If Spain finish third in their group and do enough to rank among the top third-placed teams, they would play the winner of Group B and then join the path they’d take if they won Group B (talk about over-complicating things!)
Spain Golden Boot odds
Juventus striker Alvaro Morata is expected to be Spain’s first-choice striker going into the competition with the experienced talisman leading the line in Turin this season. The 28-year-old striker is 20/1 with BetVictor to become the first Spanish player to win the Golden Boot at the European Championship since Fernando Torres at Euro 2012, when the Spaniards last lifted a major trophy.
