Coronavirus put Euro 2020 back a year to 2021, but 24 sides will still play across 11 host cities – with Dublin and Bilbao dropped from the schedule in April and Seville added – in a festival of football.

The Euro 2020 group draw

Group B: Belgium, Russia, Denmark, Finland

Group C: Ukraine, Netherlands, Austria, North Macedonia

Group D: England, Croatia, Czech Republic, Scotland

Group E: Spain, Poland, Sweden, Slovakia

Group F: Germany, France, Portugal, Hungary

When and where is Euro 2020?

The 16th UEFA European Championship runs from June 11 to July 11, 2021, and to celebrate the tournament’s 60th birthday, 11 cities across the continent have been selected as hosts. The 12 cities and stadiums are:

  • Amsterdam (Netherlands) – Johan Cruyff Arena
  • Baku (Azerbaijan) – Olympic Stadium
  • Seville (Spain) – Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium
  • Bucharest (Romania) – Arena Nationala
  • Budapest (Hungary) – Puskas Arena
  • Copenhagen (Denmark) – Parken Stadium
  • Glasgow (Scotland) – Hampden Park
  • London (England) – Wembley Stadium
  • Munich (Germany) – Allianz Arena
  • Rome (Italy) – Stadio Olimpico
  • Saint Petersburg (Russia) – Krestovsky Stadium

Rome’s Stadio Olimpico will host the opening match on June 11, while England’s national stadium Wembley will stage both semi-finals and the final as well as a last-16 tie that was originally scheduled to be staged in Dublin.

As a result of the pan-European staging, no nation has been granted an automatic spot, with all 55 teams taking part in the qualification process.

The Euro 2020 group-stage schedule

Each stadium will host three group-stage matches, which are set to take place between June 11 and June 23.

The host cities have been paired off for the group stages:

  • Group A: Rome and Baku
  • Group B: Saint Petersburg and Copenhagen
  • Group C: Amsterdam and Bucharest
  • Group D: London and Glasgow
  • Group E: Seville and Saint Petersburg
  • Group F: Munich and Budapest

Every host nation that qualifies will play a minimum of two games at home in the group stages. Should both paired nations qualify (eg. if England and Scotland both qualify they will be put into Group D) then a draw will take place to determine which nation will host their direct group-stage encounter.

The winners and runners-up of each group will reach the knockout stages, as well as the four best third-placed teams.

The knockout schedule

Each city will host one last 16 or quarter-final match, before London takes centre stage for the semi-finals and final. There is no third-place play-off.

The knockouts will run from June 26 to July 11

Everton vs Salford City predictions

Everton vs Salford City predictions

The League Cup second round gets underway this week with Everton welcoming Salford City to Goodison Park on Wednesday night (8:15pm kick-off).

The Toffees reached the quarter-finals last season and will have aspirations of going even further this time around, with serial winner Carlo Ancelotti no doubt eyeing up silverware to truly leave his mark on Merseyside.

His side kicked off the new Premier League campaign in emphatic style, seeing off Tottenham 1-0 in the capital, with his three new midfield signings slotting in harmoniously to his new-look XI and giving Evertonians a real sense of optimism for the season ahead.

The Italian coach is accustomed to glittering European nights and pitting his wits against continental giants, so the prospect of Salford presents a different challenge for the elite tactician to say the least.

Part owned by Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Paul Scholes and David Beckham, the League Two club will be relishing the chance to take on Premier League opposition and will hope to cause an early-round upset.

Uefa Europa Conference League

As from this season the winners of the League Cup will not qualify for the Europa League — as in previous campaigns — but will enter the play-off phase for the Uefa Europa Conference League (UECL), the new European competition starting from 2021/22.

The third-tier continental tournament was announced in December 2018 and gets underway next season. However, this does not mean the number of teams qualifying for the Champions League or the Europa League will be affected. There will still be four English clubs in the Champions League and two in the Europa League.

If the League Cup winners qualify for European competition by their standing in the league, then the team who finished sixth in the Premier League (or seventh if the FA Cup is won by a top-six club) will enter the UECL play-offs.

The Europa Conference League will be played on a Thursday night alongside the Europa League and will consist of 32 teams in the group stages. The premise is to allow teams from smaller European leagues to compete in continental football alongside some of the bigger nations.

For Everton this may well present the perfect opportunity to prioritise a competition like the League Cup. The Toffees have not lifted silverware since their FA Cup win in 1995, so the prospect of a domestic cup run with the opportunity to mark a return to Europe could be a tantalising one for Ancelotti as he weighs up his priorities this term.

Everton & Salford City’s previous line-ups:

  • Everton (vs Tottenham): Pickford; Coleman, Mina, Keane, Digne; Allan, Doucoure, Gomes; Rodriguez, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin.
  • Salford City (vs Exeter City): Hladky; Threlkeld, Eastham, Clarke, Touray; Lowe, Gibson, Hunter; Armstrong, Andrade, Henderson.

Fabian Delph, Mason Holgate, Cenk Tosun and Jean-Philippe Gbamin all remain sidelined for Everton. Ancelotti may be tempted to play around with his side following the win over Spurs, with players like Jonjoe Kenny, Tom Davies and Moise Kean in line to make the starting XI.

Players to watch:

  • Everton: If Ancelotti does indeed tinker with his side, this could be the perfect opportunity for the Italian to get a closer look at academy graduate Jonjoe Kenny. The adventurous right-back shone during an audacious loan move to Schalke last season and will be desperate to fight his way into first-team plans at Goodison Park. Standing in his way, though, is club captain Seamus Coleman, but if Kenny can impress when handed the opportunity, he will be putting considerable pressure on his 31-year-old right-back counterpart.
  • Salford City: In a game of such magnitude for Salford, the club will need cool and composed heads to settle the nerves and handle the big occasion. In Darron Gibson, manager Graham Alexander has a player who not only packs a wealth of experience and top-flight ability, but also someone who knows the opposition very well. The former Manchester United midfielder plied his trade for Everton across a five year spell between 2012 and 2017. Admittedly times have changed quite drastically since the Irishman left Goodison Park, but a few of his old teammates have stuck around and could get a run out later this week. Gibson will be chomping at the bit to get stuck in and prove his worth at his old stomping ground.

Scoreline prediction: Everton 2-0 Salford City
