A hundred thousand computer simulations of every match,  study of the complete head-to-head history for each tie, and the latest in cutting-edge inferential statistics, have combined to give the following predictions (aye, some surprised me as well :)):

2-0

2-1

1-2

3-0

2-1

0-1

Euro 2020 Prediction League

11 June - 11 July 2021

Predict the score in all 51 games

 

Points

        3 points for Correct Score. 1 point for Correct Result.

 

Favourite Team

        Nominate one team as your favourite.  Any points accrued in games involving your favourite will be doubled.

 

Final Scores

        In all games (Group and Knockout) you will be predicting the score at 90 minutes + time added on. Extra time and penalties are irrelevant.

 

Predictions

        There will be 7 rounds of predictions; 3 Group matches, Round of 16, Quarters, Semis & Final.

        Deadlines between rounds may be short. Late entries will be allowed but any match that has started will be void.
        


To enter, post your favourite team.

 

The games will be played in 11 countries. 9 of these have teams competing in the championship. These countries will play most, if not all, of their group matches at a home ground.
In the fixture lists I will identify those occurrences with an asterisk beside the home team.

A lot of positivity in the media for Scotland. While i agree we have a better team than in previous years, i fear some are going overboard with their predictions. I am auld enough to remember all the hype in 78 and Ally's tartan army  etc. That didn't exactly go to plan. Hope i am wrong. If we get out the group stages for the first time ever that would be great imo. Anything better would be a bonus.

After my attempts at guessing the results of the opening game were so wrong (but at the same time absolutely correct as Italy scored 2 goals and Turkey scored 1) here's my guesses for match day 2.

 1-1

2-0

0-1

1-0

2-0

1-1

0-0

0-1

2-1

3-0

1-3

A bit harsh, scotty. You're off the mark along with many others. One correct score last night.

Best wishes to Christian Eriksen and his family. We all get very passionate about football, but there are more important things in life.

Yep, hope he makes full recovery.  Football just a game at the end of the day.

My policy of enlightened underdoggism got off to a bad start when Turkeys voted for Christmas and giftwrapped the points to Italy. 

Anyway here goes for Round 2. If Nessum Dorma means None Shall Sleep, what is the Italian for "None Shall Score"?

1-2

1-1

1-0

2-1

1-2

0-1

2-2

1-2

3-1

2-2

2-1

1-1

Going back to Nessum Dorma, why do Italians like singing about projecting windows in converted loft spaces?

not nice to see at all - had to leave the room -  fair play to my pick for coming back out but I wonder what pressure was put in them behind the scenes to fulfil the fixture

Underdog prediction came right this time, but I would never have wanted it to be in these circumstances.

Good to hear that Eriksen seems to be recovering well. Credit to his team mates for continuing, but I really hope that was their free choice.
