Group E is another foursome that has a clear cut favorite in Spain, who have -303 odds on 888sport to win the group. They will have the Polish, the Slovakians, and the Swedish to contend within the group stage, though it’s doubtful any of that trio are actually capable of handing La Furia Roja a defeat.

Spain will emerge as the top team from Group E, with Poland and Sweden most likely to duke it out for that second slot to advance to the knockout stage. Alongside Group C—which should be easily dusted by the Dutch—we expect Group E to be the only other group not to send three nations to the Round of 16 in this summer’s Euro 2020 tournament

Spain

Spain cruised through a pretty easy qualifying group without a loss and Luis Enrique’s squad should be expected to find themselves in a similar position once group play comes to a close at the Euro 2020 this summer. Not only are they by far the best outfit in Group E, they also get to play all three of their games at home at San Mames in Bilbao.

They’ve got experience and talent pumping through every level of the team from keeper David De Gea and centre half Sergio Ramos at the back to Koke and Marco Asensio in the middle to Alvaro Morata at the top. Seeing Adama Traore get some run at the Euros would be a good bit of fun as well. You can count on Spain to advance to the quarter-finals thanks to a lucky draw in the Round of 16, but don’t expect them to make a surprise run past that stage.

Poland

Poland was in a pretty lax qualifying group, but they still impressed in winning it with just one loss and one draw. The White And Reds should be able to grab the second spot in this group behind Spain.

The Polish also represent one of the biggest underdog threats for the favorites thanks to attacker Robert Lewandowski, who is arguably the best striker in the world right now and can change any game at any moment. Poland could make a run, though it would be an arduous one, as they will likely get Croatia or England in the Round of 16.

Sweden

Sweden used to be in a similar position to Poland: trotting out an All-World striker in Zlatan Ibrahimovic that gave them a chance to win every match in which he played. No more. While they still have a strong core of experienced guys, most of them are past their prime at this point.

After coming second to Spain in their qualifying group, the Swedes were once again unable to escape La Furia Roja in the group stage here and will struggle to retain their runner up position this time around. Janne Andersson’s side also drew twice in the qualifying stage with Norway, who didn’t even make it into the tournament.

Slovakia

Slovakia is one of the select few who made it into the Euro 2020 via the play-offs route after finishing third in their qualifying group after two ugly losses to Croatia and a defeat and a draw against the Welsh.

The Slovakians persevered, however, and still found their way to this summer’s tournament—though it is likely to be a short appearance. They are in one of the weaker groups, but the Slovakians simply don’t have the quality to hold back a team like Spain or contain a player like Lewandowski.

Betting On Group E

Spain are the overwhelming favorites to win this group—and for good reason. If their -303 odds are too low to peak your interest, then you should be able to find better odds on Spain to reach the final eight (which is very likely) closer to the start date of the tournament.

Thanks to Lewandowski, Poland should be a shoo-in for the second spot and depending on the striker’s form, he could even lead them to a deep run with multiple knockout stage wins. Stranger things have happened. Another bet that we like is Lewandowski to lead Group E in goals and/or to finish as the overall tournament’s top scorer.
