Germany and Spain holds the record for the most European champions, each with three titles so far. Spain is the current champions. They won consecutively this competition, in 2008 , when they defeated Germany (1-0) and also in 2012 when they passed over Italy (4-0). Germany last Euro champion title it was in 1996. But they made almost all the time a good game reaching twice a semi-final and ending three times as runners-up, last time being in the 2008 edition.
Bookmakers see Germany as the main favorite to win this edition of Euro. They played very well at the World Cup 2014, winning for the 18 time this competition. Like i said before , they ended in 2008 in second place and reached a semifinal in the previous Euro 2012. France is seen as the second favorite to win the Euro 2016. They did it twice so far , once in 1984 and then in 2000. Also they played a semifinal in 1996. This is the second time when France is hosting a UEFA European Championship competition. In 1984 it was the first time and they won it. France will have the public on their side and probably they are counting on this advantage. Euro 2016 attracts many viewers and also many punters. It is a good betting market, the odds provided by bookies are very good and also will have some special promotions.
