Euro 2012 Predictions

Updated on May 3, 2012

Group Stage

Group A

  1. Russia
  2. Czech Republic
  3. Poland
  4. Greece

This is probably the hardest group to call, as all the teams are quite evenly matched. However I think Russia will come out on top of the group, with Czech Republic going through as runners up. Poland to come 3rd, Greece bottom.

Group B

  1. Germany
  2. Netherlands
  3. Portugal
  4. Denmark

This group has been very tough on Denmark as they've come up against 3 potential winners of the competition. So they will come bottom with 0 points. The other three teams are quite closely matched but I think Portugal are just the weaker team, and so will only come third in the group.

Between Netherlands and Germany it could go either way but I think Germany will edge it to win the group.

Group C

  1. Spain
  2. Italy
  3. Republic Of Ireland
  4. Croatia

For me I can only see one winner for this group, Spain. The second placed position could go to any of the other three depending on whether Italy play as bad as at the World Cup. However I think it will be Italy to go through behind Spain with Republic Of Ireland 3rd and Croatia bottom.

Group D

  1. France
  2. England
  3. Ukraine
  4. Sweden

I can see France winning this group as long as they play like they can unlike in the 2010 World Cup. England have a tendency to do badly in the group stages so I think they will continue that here, but will still get through ahead of Ukraine in 3rd and Sweden in 4th.

Quarter Finals

Quarter Final 1

Winner Group A vs Runner Up Group B

Russia vs Netherlands

Group A is the weakest group and Netherlands will be easily too good.

Netherlands to win.

Quarter Final 2

Winner Group B vs Runner Up Group A

Germany vs Czech Republic

Again, Germany will easily be too strong for Czech Republic.

Germany to win.

Quarter Final 3

Winner Group C vs Runner Up Group D

Spain vs England

Unfortunately Spain are the best team in the world and even though England beat them in November 2011, Spain will win this.

Spain to win.

Quarter Final 4

Winner Group D vs Runner Up Group C

France vs Italy

This should be the most exciting of the quarter finals. A rematch for the 2006 world cup final which Italy won, between 2 teams who both massively underperformed in South Africa. It will be tight, probably extra time and maybe penalties, but I think France will get through.

France to win.

Semi Finals

Semi Final 1

Winner Quarter Final 1 vs Winner Quarter Final 3

Netherlands vs Spain

A repeat of the 2010 World Cup Final which Spain won, I can see Spain being just too strong for Netherlands again.

Spain to win.

Semi Final 2

Winner Quarter Final 2 vs Winner Quarter Final 4

Germany vs France

Another intriguing match involving France. Both teams have players capable of winning any game on their day, but I just think Germany have more: Ozil, Podolski, Klose. Also, Germany are a consistent tournament team, they always get to at least the semi, so I think this time they will go all the way to the final.

Germany to win.


Spain vs Germany

So it will be a Spain, Germany final. The champions of the last two tournaments vs the young team that suddenly emerged at the 2010 World Cup as serious contenders.

I think this will be the game that ends Spain's dominace and sees Germany become the new European champions.

Germany to win.
