While all 51 games will be a joy to watch across 10 host cities, a handful of fixtures will be eagerly awaited.

Join us as we go over six of the most eye-catching group-stage games to look out for in Germany.

Group A: Switzerland vs. Germany (ID: 19032615).

Scheduled for Sunday, June 23, at Deutsche Bank Park, this game of familiar faces is destined to put the Germans to the test, having qualified automatically as host nation.

Switzerland vs Germany Euro 2024

Switzerland, who won four games in the qualifying round (W4 D5 L1), are making their sixth European appearance in the last eight editions.

The Swiss are tipped to finish as second in Group A, having made the cut in our list of dark horses for Euro 2024.

Switzerland has scored six goals in the last five games while conceding only twice.

A four-game unbeaten run (LDWWD) in the current calendar year leaves the Red Crosses with victories over Ireland and, more recently, Estonia, 4-0.

While hoping to pick up valuable points in other fixtures, a victory over Germany could be the magic wand needed to gain certain entry into the knockout stage.

Host nation Germany, who are participating in a record 14th European Championship, will have Scotland, Hungary, and Switzerland standing in the way of a record 4th title.

While Friday’s opening game against Scotland at Allianz Arena is eagerly awaited, this Match Day 3 fixture against Switzerland promises to be an exciting watch.

Recent victories over France, Netherlands and Greece can serve as a litmus test of Die Mannschaft’s readiness.

The Germans scored six times in the last five games while conceding four times.

However, Germany (LWWDW) has been unable to defeat the Red Crosses in the last three attempts, with their last victory over Switzerland coming in 2008.

In Friday’s 2-1 comeback win against Greece, Germany lined up a four-man defense, a 4—2—3—1, leaving Kai Havertz in attack.

A similar lineup is expected for this fixture, provided Julian Nagelsmann does not see a need for change following games on Match Days 1 and 2.

What can you expect from Switzerland vs. Germany?

Keep an eye out for defense-splitting passes from Toni Kroos, while the skilful duo of Jamal Musiala and Leroy Sané will be a handful for the Swiss backline.

Nevertheless, a defensive lineup consisting of Manuel Akanji and Fabian Schär will do everything legal in the contest of ninety minutes to thwart Germany’s attacking threat.

Group B: Spain vs. Italy (ID: 19032619).

Three-time European champions Spain are gearing up for a feisty battle in what could be described as the ‘Group of Death’.

With a rich soccer history in continental football, La Roja are hoping to march to a fourth European title.

To do so, they will need to be better than Italy when both sides meet.

Scheduled for June 20 at Veltins-Arena, this Match Day 2 fixture promises to leave fans and neutrals alike at the edge of their seats.


While a tricky opening fixture against Croatia could jolt Spain, a defeat against Italy would be a huge blow to their continental campaign.

Three victories in the last five games (WLDWW) should leave Spain confident enough to head into Friday’s Euro. More so after scoring 16 times (3.2 G/G) while conceding six.

With ten goals in the last two games, Luis de la Fuente would be out of his mind to change the 4—3—3 seen in both games when taking on Italy.

Skipper Álvaro Morata is expected to be at the centre of the attacking trio.

Two-time winners and defending champions Italy will be looking to earn successive European titles in this outing.

The Azzurri picked up a 1-0 win over Bosnia and Herzegovina in a recent friendly game, leaving Spalletti rating his team between 70 and 80% in readiness ahead of Euro 2024.

It was Italy’s third win in five games (DWWDW), having scored only five goals while keeping four clean sheets.

Italy also conceded only one goal, a testimony of their defensive quality.

What can you expect from Spain vs. Italy?

You can expect a cagey game in this battle of heavyweights.

While Spain will have no problems putting the ball into the back of the net, the Italians are not very generous in giving away too many chances.

A Spanish midfield consisting of Pedri, Lamine Yamal, and Rodri should see La Roja do more of the attacking.

Spalletti is hoping to bring his side to 100%, having pointed out the final piece of the puzzle being their lack of physicality.

A defensive-minded Azzurri with the likes of Alessandro Bastoni and Federico Dimarco could keep Italy in the game until that moment of quality arrives.

Don’t expect too many goals in this explosive encounter, as Predicted by our Football API.

For this fixture between Spain and Italy, our Prediction API gives a 9.87% Correct Score Probability of 1-1 being the most likely outcome in 16 possible predicted scorelines.

In addition, a Fulltime Result Probability of 58.44% is predicted for a win for Spain, while the likelihood of a draw is 21.35%.

Group C: Denmark vs England (ID: 19032624)

While Denmark will have Slovenia to contend with on Match Day 1, MD 2’s clash against England will be a major source of worry for Kasper Hjulmand.

Scheduled for June 20 at Deutsche Bank Park, this fixture is one to watch out for among the many.

Denmark-vs-England-Euro 2024

A three-game winning run will leave the Danish Dynamite (LDWWW) feeling invincible, despite conceding four goals in the last five games.

The Group H winners from the qualifying round, who won seven times in the qualifying round (W7, D1, L2), also scored seven goals in the last five games, following a recent 3-1 win over Norway.

They take on the Three Lions, hoping to put the lights out on the English party.

Rated as favourites to go all the way to the final, England will be looking to cruise past the Danes when both sides lock horns.

The Three Lions have won only once in the last five games (DLDWL), losing more recently in a shock 1-0 defeat to Iceland.

Six goals in five games while conceding five times highlights a weakness in the English defense.

One that could be exploited despite hopes of ending a 58-year-trophy drought.

What can you expect from Denmark vs. England?

With European Golden Shoe winner Harry Kane (36 goals) poised to lead the line, we can expect England to find a goal easily.

Teamwork appears to be Denmark’s greatest strength on the pitch.

Nevertheless, an attacking lineup featuring Denmark’s top scorer from the qualifying round, Rasmus Højlund (7), should see the Danes create nail-biting moments, considering England’s defensive weakness.

Group D: Netherlands vs. France (ID: 19032631).

Scheduled for June 21 at the Red Bull Arena, this Match Day 2 fixture is guaranteed to leave heads in sweaty palms.


This decisive Group D fixture may be described as a rematch.

Both sides met in the qualifying round, where the Netherlands lost to France 2-1 on Match Day 7.

This time around, Oranje will be keen to be the ones celebrating.

The Flying Dutchmen have won four of their last five games while keeping clean sheets in all, except for a 2-1 loss to Germany (WWLWW).

The one-time European champions (1988) scored an impressive haul of 19 goals in the last five games.

They also conceded only twice, with a 4-0 win over Iceland being their final game before Euro 2024.

Meanwhile, France, who are favourites to go all the way, will head into Euro 2024 with a three-game unbeaten run (DLWWD).

Didier Deschamps deployed a 4—2—3—1 with Olivier Giroud in attack in the recent goalless draw against Canada.

However, a 4—3—3 when facing a much more demanding side like the Netherlands may be seen.

What can you expect from Netherlands vs. France?

With a water-tight defensive lineup consisting of Nathan Aké, Virgil van Dijk, and an attacking-minded Denzel Dumfries, don’t expect a walk in the park for France.

Meanwhile, an attacking lineup with Mbappe, who bagged a brace in the qualifying round encounter, will not go quiet for too long.

Watch out for the subplot between Serie A rivals Theo Hernández and Denzel Dumfries, who were literally at each other’s throats in a recent Milan derby.

This could be a game of two halves!

Group E: Ukraine vs. Belgium (ID: 19032639)

Despite qualifying via the play-offs after beating Bosnia and Herzegovina and Iceland, Ukraine’s clash against Belgium is one of the games to look out for.

This Match Day 3 fixture, scheduled for June 26 at the MHPArena, could be the ultimate decider on who qualifies for the knockout rounds.

Serhiy Rebrov will be hoping Ukraine can keep themselves in the running for a spot in the next round before this fixture.

Belgium, on the other hand, sailed smoothly through the qualifying round, winning six of their eight games (W6 D2 L0).

They head to Euro 2024 with a five-game unbeaten run (WDDWW), defeating Luxembourg 3-0 in a recent game.

The Red Devils scored 12 goals in those five games and kept four clean sheets while conceding only twice.

What can you expect from Ukraine vs. Belgium?

Don’t be fooled by their struggles in the qualifying round, Ukraine (WWDL?) could hit the ground running right after the opener.

La Liga’s top scorer, Artem Dovbyk, and well-known figures such as Mykhailo Mudryk and Oleksandr Zinchenko could make a difference for Ukraine despite expected limited opportunities.

However, in this game, where attacking quality could determine the outcome, a Lukaku-led Belgium should emerge at the top.

Romelu Lukaku set a new goal record for a single European Championship qualifying campaign with 14 goals.

On paper, a partnership with Kevin De Bruyne should see Belgium easily outscore Ukraine.

Yet again, for this fixture between Ukraine and Belgium, our Prediction API gives a 13.17% Correct Score Probability of 1-1 as the most likely outcome in 16 possible predicted scorelines.

The possibility of seeing more than five goals in a 3-3 scoreline shrinks to 0.63%.

Furthermore, a Fulltime Result Probability of 30.56% is predicted for a win for Ukraine, while the likelihood of a draw is 29.06%.

Group F: Türkiye vs. Portugal (ID: 19032643)

This Match Day 2 fixture also promises to leave fans with hearts racing.


Türkiye vs. Portugal, scheduled for June 22 at Signal Iduna Park, one of the 10 host venues, can be described as a clash of the titans in Group F.

Both sides met in the World Cup qualifying round, with Türkiye losing 3-1.

The Crescent-Stars are winless in five games (DLLDL), having lost to Poland 2-1 more recently.

Türkiye were battered by another Euro 2024 team, Austria, in March, losing 6-1.

Portugal (WLWL?) alternated between a win and a loss in their last four games.

However, Roberto Martínez’s side finished as Group J winners in the qualifying round with a 100% record (W10, D0, L0).

Portugal will be looking to bring the same form to the tournament proper.

What can you expect from Türkiye vs. Portugal?

Goal-scoring troubles could see Türkiye emerge as second-best in this encounter.

Vincenzo Montella’s side have scored only three goals in five games, conceding nine.

Hakan Çalhanoğlu will be looking to hit the target from range, as he often loves to do at Inter.

However, you can expect a side led by Cristiano Ronaldo, who was the second-highest goal scorer in the qualifying round (10 goals), to create more of the goal-scoring chances.
