About the Women’s European Championships

The first edition of the Women’s European Championship was in 1984 with Sweden beating England in the final. There were only four teams involved in the competition, with Denmark and Italy being the other two.

There were only four teams in attendance at each of the first six editions of the Women’s European Championships, so it took some time to grow. It moved to eight participants for the 1997 edition, which was won by Germany.

That was the start of a run of six straight titles in the Women’s Euros by Germany. In the 2009 edition, the draw was expanded to 12 teams, before going up to 16 teams for the 2017 edition.

Germany is the most successful nation in the history of the UEFA Women’s European Championships, with eight titles. The only other winners have been Sweden, Norway and most recently, the Netherlands.

2022 sees England as the host nation for the second time. 2005 was the previous time that the country hosted the tournament. England Women failed to get past the group stage on that big occasion.

England’s record at the Women’s European Championships

England Women have participated eight times before in the Euros. Only five other nations have made more appearances than that. England Women have gone close a couple of times, but the title has evaded them.

They lost the inaugural Final in 1984 and were runners-up in 2009 when they were heavily defeated by Germany. There have been two semi-final exits for England Women in the history of the tournament as well.

England Women Outright Winner Odds

Hosts England are the 9/2 second-favourites in Women’s Euro 2022 odds* (betting odds recorded at 00:15 GMT on July 5th, 2022 at Paddy Power).

Since Sarina Wiegman took over at the helm, England have remained undefeated. She took over the Lionesses in August 2020 on a four-year deal.

Wiegman was in charge of the successful Netherlands side at the 2017 edition.

She also guided the Netherlands to the 2019 World Cup Final. England Women are W12 D2 L0 since Wiegman took charge.

The Lionesses have been powering their way through the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup qualification, winning all eight matches played so far.

They have tallied 68 goals, including a 20-0 thrashing of Latvia. As part of their tournament warm-ups, England Women hammered reigning champions Netherlands 5-1.

What is the first match in Women’s Euro 2022 betting?

England v Austria is the opening match of the tournament on July 6th and it’s an interesting clash.

England Women met Austria in the World Cup qualifiers in November and were given some problems by their opponents.

They did get the win thanks to their record goalscorer Ellen White, who netted the only goal of the game.

So this is going to be a stern test for them, but England did create a host of corners in that match (12) and a few tweaks by Wiegman will probably have them primed.

Austria made it to the semi-finals on their Women’s European Championship debut in 2017. They have a bit of star power up front in Nicola Billa.

But England Women are the 1/6 odds-on favourites in the match outright* (betting odds recorded at 00:15 GMT on July 5th, 2022 at Paddy Power).

It will be important for the hosts to get off to a winning start, as they do also face a tough match against former champions Norway.

Norway has seen Ada Hegerberg return to the international fold after a self-imposed exile. On her first match back after five years away, she netted a hattrick in April.

Debutants Northern Ireland make up the group.

England Women 1/6, Draw 6/1, Austria Women 11/1

The Women’s Euro 2022 tournament is probably the most wide-open edition of the top competition that has been seen. There is a stack of quality around, making the contest for the Women’s Euro 2022 Top Goalscorer interesting.

England’s record goalscorer Ellen White is the 6/1 favourite to get the Golden Boot* (betting odds recorded at 00:15 GMT on July 5th, 2022 at Paddy Power). The Man City forward has 105 goals in 50 appearances for her country.

Given that England are one of the favourites in the tournament outright betting market, she should be among the goals. England also have Beth Mead as a 9/1 contender and she has been red-hot in 2022 under Wiegman.

Arsenal hot-shot Mead is likely to be one of the stars of the show. She goes to the Euros after a stunning season with Arsenal and can both score and create goals.

There is also Vivianne Miedema who can’t be ruled out. The record goalscorer for the Netherlands is 7/1 in Women’s Euro 2022 betting odds* (betting odds recorded at 00:15 GMT on July 5th, 2022 at Paddy Power).

Arguably one of the best players to ever grace the game, Miedema needs just eight more goals to get to the century mark for her country. Another interesting player in this category is France’s Marie-Antoinette Katoto. She has tallied 18 goals in just 22 international appearances.

Women’s Euro 2022 Group A

This is quite the competitive group, but it’s one that England Women will be expected to win. They will hope to have the job done with a game to spare, to rest a few players ahead of the knockout stage.

Norway have finished as runners-up four times since they won the title in 1987, so are a tricky threat. It is probably going to boil down to their clash with Austria to see who follows England through.

England Women 4/11, Norway Women 5/1, Austria Women 14/1, Northern Ireland Women 50/1

Women’s Euro 2022 Group B

Group B of the Women’s European Championship 2022 is the closest to a Group Of Death that we get at the tournament.

Spain Women are the tournament front-runners and have one of the top superstars of the game in Alexia Putellas. She’s a joy to watch and should have a big influence in helping Spain try and make their breakthrough at the Euros.

Germany Women are the most successful team in the history of the Women’s European Champions. They have a talented squad as always, and their clash with Spain on July 12th is one to put on the calendar.

But then there is also Denmark Women in there. They were the runners-up to the Netherlands in the 2017 Euro’s. Denmark are capable of causing an upset, or at the very least frustrating the likes of Germany and Spain.

Spain Women 8/11, Germany Women 6/4, Denmark Women 9/1, Finland Women 50/1

Women’s Euro 2022 Group C

Group C for Women’s Euro 2022 tips looks a bit more cut and dry. Reigning Champions Netherlands Women and Sweden look like the two likely to get through.

It’s hard to see Switzerland Women to Portugal Women having enough quality to sneak into one of the qualifying spots.

Netherlands Women 10/11, Sweden Women Evens, Switzerland Women 16/1, Portugal Women 40/1

Women’s Euro 2022 Group D

The winner of Group D looks to be a bit of a foregone conclusion. It should be France Women. There doesn’t appear to be a great deal of cohesion in the French camp, however. Their 2019 World Cup campaign under head coach Corrine Diacre was a shambles.

France Women do have a superb attack but have not taken Amandine Henry or Eugenie Le Sommer. Italy Women will probably follow the French throughout the knockout stage. Both Belgium Women and Iceland Women do appear to have a huge gap to make up for.

France Women 2/7, Italy Women 9/2, Belgium Women 10/1, Iceland Women 16/1

Who will win the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 Championship?

It’s a fantastic tournament ahead because the levels of quality are higher than ever this year. England Women are a clear threat from 9/2 in the outright winner market* (betting odds recorded at 00:15 GMT on July 5th, 2022 at Paddy Power).

They have home advantage, have one of the best managers in the game in Sarina Wiegman and have such strength in depth. The Lionesses may get very close to making their tournament breakthrough.

Sweden could easily be a threat in this tournament as well as they are on a huge undefeated streak of form. Not since losing the 2019 Olympic Games Final to Canada have Sweden Women been defeated.

Their record at the Women’s Euros is competition. In the last seven editions, they have finished as losing semi-finalist three times, and as runners-up twice.

Sweden Women are 7/1 in Women’s Euro 2022 betting* (betting odds recorded at 00:15 GMT on July 5th, 2022 at Paddy Power).

Spain Women are a classy side and drew with both Germany and England at the Arnold Clark Cup earlier this year. They are a tough side to break down and will rely heavily on Esther Gonzalez for goals.

While they don’t look as prolific in front of goal as some of the other front-runners, Spain are genuine outright contenders at 3/1* (betting odds recorded at 00:15 GMT on July 5th, 2022 at Paddy Power).
