We analyzed separately the ten qualifying groups for Euro 2020 based to each one national team ranking in Fifa. For example the average 54.60 resulting from Group A comes from ranking Bulgaria 48, England 5, Kosovo 130 and Montenegro 46.Thus, the smaller the average of each group means that it gathers better teams in the group to compete in the qualification for Euro 2020.

How can this analysis help you?

You can consult these indicators to understand, for example, the degree of difficulty required to qualification for fthe first two avorites in each group and compare with the given odds from bookmakers. Another example is that the smaller the average of each group the more difficult it will be theoretically to obtain clear qualification and perhaps more uncertain for the matches final outcome. You can still keep in mind these averages simply to get a better overview of the qualifiers regardless of whether or not you bet. Enjoy!

Comment: In Europe belongs currently the best national team of the world based to FIFA rankings (Belgium) and in the I Group belong the greatest average. We think that we have the champion of the lowest power group. How it could be different as we have in the same group Cyprus, Kazakhstan and San Marino? Also Russia and Scotland with not so good ranking. Hmm… Belgium is a mistake for this table…
