Among the 24 teams participating in group play for the 2024 UEFA Men’s European Championship, 16 nations will advance to the Euro 2024 bracket and the knockout rounds.

Which third-place teams are most likely to advance?

Among the teams projected to finish third, this is how sportsbooks are lining them up from most likely to least likely to qualify for the Euro 2024 bracket:

  • Croatia
  • Serbia
  • Hungary
  • Romania
  • Czech Republic
  • Austria

Which third-placed teams qualify for the Euro 2024 knockout rounds?

The four teams with the most points advance among the six third-place teams. Nations get three points for a win, one point for a draw, and zero points for a loss.

If two or more teams are tied in points, goal difference is the first tiebreaker, followed by goals scored. If there is still a tie, it goes to who has more wins, then lower disciplinary points based on yellow and red cards. If all of these tiebreakers are still not enough, overall European qualifier rankings settle it.

Which team will the third-placed qualifiers face in the round of 16?

The opponents are determined by which set of third-placed finishers goes through. This table sorts it out all possible combinations for you.

Bracket Based On Sports Betting Odds

If we were to follow each team’s consensus odds to qualify for the knockout stage from the best sports betting sites, here is how the Round of 16 would line up from the top of the bracket to the bottom. Each nation’s odds to win the tournament are noted in parentheses to potentially help you project who may have an easy or difficult path deep into the tournament.

  • Spain (+700) vs. Hungary (+8000)
  • Germany (+550) vs. Denmark (+3500)
  • Portugal (+800) vs. Serbia (+8000)
  • Netherlands (+1600) vs. Ukraine (+10000)
  • Belgium (+1600) vs. Croatia (+4000)
  • France (+340) vs. Turkey (+5000)
  • England (+300) vs. Romania (+20000)
  • Switzerland (+6500) vs. Italy (+1600)

Conclusions

If team quality holds and the favorites in each group finish on top after the group stage, it appears the bracket, coupled with the odds, shows Portugal’s pod may be the most attractive to try and pick a longshot, as it’s the only one without one of the top-two favorites or two teams with odds shorter than +1000 at Fanatics Sportsbook in the path to the semifinals.

Overall, how the bracket fell may also make it attractive to take a flyer on a team not named England or France, as the two biggest favorites to win this tournament cannot both reach the final if each wins its group. That means one team with a much bigger pre-tournament price would find itself playing for a UEFA European Championship.
