What potential opponents for the Blues after the hens?
The France team inherited the most difficult group on paper (the F) with Germany, Portugal, the reigning European champion, and Hungary. The Blues will also have the disadvantage of playing two games in hostile terrain with a confrontation against the Germans in Munich in front of 14,000 people. They will also challenge Hungary in front of their home crowd in Budapest.
If France finishes first in their group, they will face the third in group A, B or C. If they finish second, they will challenge the first in group D (England, Croatia, Czech Republic, Scotland). If it finishes among the best third, it will be opposed to the first of group C (Austria, the Netherlands, North Macedonia or Ukraine) or of group D.
How to qualify in 8th?
As in 2016, Euro 2020 has 24 participants divided into six groups of four teams. The group stage will carry out a first “skimming” of eight nations. The top two from each group and the top four third will advance to the round of 16.
Italy-Turkey to start
The first match of the Euro will oppose Italy to Turkey, this Friday at the Olympic stadium in Rome (9 p.m.). The two teams are in a very homogeneous group A with Wales and Switzerland, which will meet on Saturday (3 p.m.).
Good morning all!
This is the big day! Euro 2020 begins this Friday with a year late, due to the coronavirus crisis which has prompted the organizers to postpone the competition. This will take place in a unique context with eleven host countries, drastic sanitary conditions and a welcome adapted according to the restrictions of each country.
