Leagues Tipped:

SlipsTips takes on the  tricky task of trying to predict the outcome of Group F which houses three of the top six in the outright winner betting.

Three former European champions – France, Germany and Portugal – along with Hungary, all form part of this year's “Group of Death”.

After lifting the 2018 Fifa World Cup, France are 5/1 (PaddyPower) joint-favourites to win the Euros for what would be the third time in their history.

Didier Deschamps star-studded side are aiming to emulate their illustrious predecessors who famously scooped the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000 in succession.

Portugal, the reigning champions, have a significantly stronger squad than they did when they lifted the trophy for the first time in 2016.

The holders will be looking to repeat the feat at 10/1 with PaddyPower but a tough group won't allow them time to settle.

Germany, meanwhile, will be looking to rediscover their mojo after bowing out at the group stage of the World Cup in 2018.

Joachim Low's 15-year stint as Germany boss will come to an end after the tournament and recent results would suggest they're less likely than ever to challenge for the trophy

Hungary should give a good account of themselves but getting out of this group will be an almost impossible task for Marco Rossi's men, who are 1/3 with Bet 365 to prop up the section.

Who will win the group?

This is, by a distance, the most difficult group to call, with World Cup 2014 champions Germany, Euro 2016 holders Portugal and World Cup 2018 winners France fighting it out for top spot.

Germany will have the added aid of playing all three fixtures on home soil in Munich with fans and are therefore 6/4 favourites with William Hill to win the group.

However, Germany are not the force of old and I would be more inclined to side with tournament favourites France who are 17/10 (PaddyPower) to top Group F.

France have an attacking trident that is unmatched in the competition and their superior squad depth could prove to be the difference in their tilt at claiming top spot in a testing section.

Who will qualify?

All three heavyweights in this section will view their respective fixtures with Hungary as a must-win match and a trio of triumphs would mean that the group is likely to be decided on very fine margins.

There's a good chance that all three of the big hitters will book a last-16 berth but the best bet could be to back France and Portugal in the dual forecast market at a tasty 3-1 with Bet 365.

Both France and Portugal – who contested the Euro 2016 final – look stronger than they did five years ago, while the same can't be said for a German side who appear to be in a state of transition.

Players to watch?

Serge Gnabry will be looking to build on his impressive international record of 15 goals in 20 appearances for Germany.

The Bayern Munich man, who plays anywhere across the front line, was Die Mannschaft's leading marksmen during qualification and he's 3/1 with Unibet to repeat the trick this Summer.

All eyes will be firmly trained on Cristiano Ronaldo who will be appearing in his fifth straight European Championship and he could be worth taking on at even-money (1/1) with Betfred to finish the tournament as Portugal's top goalscorer.

The Portuguese superstar has scored a staggering 103 goals in 173 appearances for his country and he enters the competition just six strikes away from tying the all-time scoring record for a men's national team.
