Euro 2004 outright odds – Belgium

Matchday Guide for you to use

Euro 2024 kicks off this Friday, setting the scene for an exhilarating summer of football. While many teams could lift the trophy, England and France are currently the favorites.

However, the betting odds may have underestimated the potential of a few other teams.

Belgium has consistently faced high expectations at major tournaments, often turning into undue pressure. The so-called “golden generation” has repeatedly fallen short, with a group-stage departure at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar being the most recent letdown.

Yet, expectations are modest for Belgium at Euro 2024. Not many are tipping Domenico Tedesco’s squad as potential champions, evident in the 16/1 odds.

Nonetheless, Belgium boasts significant talent including the exceptional Kevin De Bruyne. Alongside him, Romelu Lukaku, Jeremy Doku, and Leandro Trossard make up a formidable attacking trio.

There have been changes in the Belgian defense, an aging unit that needed rejuvenation, and the appointment of Tedesco appears to be a strategic improvement over former manager Roberto Martinez.

Belgium has remained undefeated in their last 15 games and the draw for the group stage in Germany seems favorable. Placed in a group with Slovakia, Romania, and Ukraine, Belgium is expected to top Group E.

Should they lead their group, they would face a third-place team in the last-16, potentially paving the way for a deep tournament run.

At 16/1 odds, Belgium represents a value bet, with their prospects appearing brighter than the odds might suggest.
