EURO 2024 Weekly Odds Lookahead: France vs. Poland, England vs. Slovenia, End of Group Stages

France's forward #10 Kylian Mbappe throws his protective face mask as he jokes during a training session within the UEFA Euro 2024 Football Championship at the Home Deluxe Arena Stadium in Paderborn, western Germany, on June 23, 2024.

Another week of EURO 2024 action is behind us, and we’re rapidly approaching the end of the group stages. That doesn’t mean there isn’t still action to get excited about – quite the contrary, in fact! With teams now knowing what they need to do to decide their fates, the next few days of games have more leverage attached to them than anything we’ve seen so far. Let’s dive into the week that was, and the week ahead!

Key Storylines This Week

  • It’s Sputtering Home – While they still remain within the Top 3 of the odds race, it’s been an underwhelming start to the tournament for England, who remain in their loud pursuit of their first major trophy in nearly six decades. A 1-0 loss against Serbia in Week 1 felt a little less dominant than desired, but hope of it just being a warmup moment turned into legitimate concern after a 1-1 draw on Thursday against Denmark. Harry Kane scored his first goal of the tournament at the 18-minute mark, but the Danes quickly responded and both outshot and out-possessed the Three Lions. A win or draw against Slovenia will lock them into the knockout stage, but will they still be seen as a threat?
  • Drama in Group B – Monday afternoon will start the week with a high-stakes matchup between two powerhouses desperate for results to avoid disappointment. Italy had a loss against Spain that wasn’t super shocking in its result but worrisome in its execution, and now it needs to get a point to ensure advancement to the knockouts. Croatia, on the other hand, needs a win after a loss to Spain and a draw against Albania. It was always known that one nation would likely bow out in early disappointment, but the “how” might mean as much as the result now.
  • The Masked Man – After breaking his nose in his debut match against Poland, Kylian Mbappe is poised to return to the French lineup with a fancy facial accessory on Tuesday against Poland. France will be happy to get their megastar striker back, as their strong performance without him against the Netherlands on Friday ultimately ran goalless.
  • Year of the Own Goal – Four players have scored multiple goals in the group stages thus far, but there’s been no higher-profile finisher in the tournament thus far than the own goal. We’ve seen six goals scored by teams on themselves in this tournament already, with Turkey’s Samet Akaydin being the latest victim, passing a ball into his own net against Portugal on Saturday.

Even with a draw against Switzerland on Sunday, it’s been another good week for the odds of hosts Germany, along with undefeated Spain and Portugal. England’s hopes have started to come into question, as mentioned above, and Italy will likely see movement after today’s game. Belgium is in an unfortunate spot, continuing to slide in a run full of close calls with VAR.
