The Best Statistic and Top Records for Euro 2020 (2021)

Euro 2020 (2021) finally gets underway on June 11th with over fifty matches taking place during a hectic four week period. It is one of the most anticipated sporting events on the calendar and the tournament is set to be watched by millions of football fans across the world.

Betting on the European Championships remains extremely popular and thousands of punters are already looking towards the ante-post markets as they aim to uncover some value in the pre-tournament betting. As well as looking at the current squad lists and recent form, punters can also use the Euro 2021 top stats and records to supplement their pre-tournament research.

Player Statistics

Appearances

The timeless Cristiano Ronaldo has already racked up 21 appearances at the Euros, and the Madeiran is likely to play a significant role once again this summer. Portugal were victorious at Euro 2016 with the Juventus man netting three times, and if Fernando Santos’ side can progress to the knock-out stages once again, Ronaldo is likely to reach the quarter of a century mark when it comes to appearances.

Despite the absence of Pedro Neto, Portugal still have a decent chance of reaching the latter stages this summer, although they’ve been drawn in a tough-looking group and some punters may prefer back France and Germany to progress at the expense of the Euro 2016 winners.

Age

Realistically, this is likely to be CR7’s last appearance at the tournament, and he will be keen to end on a high. He is third favourite in the top goal-scorer ante-post odds, and could be a decent option for punters who believe he still has what it takes to perform at the highest level.

Hungarian goalkeeper Gabor Kiraly remains the oldest player to have competed at the tournament (aged 40 years and 86 days), a record that Ronaldo is unlikely to break.

There will be plenty of future superstars competing at Euro 2021, however, they are unlikely to surpass Jetro Willems’ record. He remains the youngest player to compete at the tournament (aged 18 years and 72 days) having taken the mantle from Belgium’s Enzo Scifo back in 2012.

Marcus Rashford is England’s youngest appearance maker (18 years and 229 years) and the Manchester United striker is likely to be feature prominently this summer. He’s around 40/1 to finish as the tournament’s top goal-scorer this time around.

Team Statistics

When betting on the outright market at Euro 2021, punters may want to look for teams who have ample experience at this tournament. Germany have made the most appearances at the European Championships, and unsurprisingly, Joachim Low’s side have the most victories in the history of the tournament (26). They’ve also scored and conceded the most goals in the history of the Euros, and they are likely to deliver plenty more entertainment this time around.

Denmark have the joint-most defeats (14), however, the Danes are generally viewed as dark horses for this year’s events and they did manage to defy the odds back in 1992.

Although Italy are reasonably well fancied for success this summer, the Azzurri have racked up the most draws at this event (16) and with the defensively astute Roberto Mancini currently in charge, punters may be tempted to wager on their opening group game with Turkey to end all-square.

Penalty Statistics

Holding your nerve is vitally important at the European Championships and there are likely to be plenty more decisive moments taking place this summer. Penalty shootouts are commonplace at International tournaments and punters who are willing to put their faith in either Spain or the Czech Republic could be duly rewarded. The pair hold the record for the most success from 12 yards (3 victories in shootouts), with England, Italy and the Netherlands suffering the most heartache (3 defeats). Fans of these three sides will be desperately hoping that they can get the job complete inside 90 minutes. Penalty shootout markets are widely available throughout the tournament, and although management/players regularly change, it’s hard to make a case for either of this trio from twelve yards.
