It's been a good custom of this forum, to have football prediction threads for each big tournament. Look at how fun the previous threads were:World Cup 2018Euro 2016World Cup 2014
Euro 2020 will have 24 teams and has a difficult (from the first look) system for defining teams getting to knockout stages. But please read the description on Wiki
and you'll see that it's not that difficult, actually. You just have to guess which 4 teams from 3rd places will be better than the rest 4 teams from 3rd places.

Anyone interested can post their predictions regarding a champion, a vice-champion, as well as group winners. You can also post your predictions for all matches (as they go day by day) before each kick-off.
Everything is optional (you can make those predictions you want, for example, predict only group winners and overall winners).
1) guessing the right outcome = 1 point
2) guessing the right score = 2 points (so that 51 matches potentially can give 102 points)
3) guessing the champion (before the tournament starts) = 25 points
4) guessing the vice-champion (before the tournament starts) = 10 points
5) guessing the right team to qualify from the group (before the tournament starts) = 2 points (per team)
6) bonus for the right prediction regarding the 1 & 2 places (their final standings don't matter; before the tournament starts) = 10 points
For the matches after the group phase:
guessing the right outcome and the right score should be done only regarding normal time (so it can be only this way: team A wins in normal time; team B wins in normal time, a draw in normal time)

Also, if you're new and haven't participated in such threads before - welcome!
Before the very first kick-off everyone can give the prognosis regarding the champion, the vice-champion and teams to qualify from the groups. A one-off prediction.
You can post your prediction regarding the nearest games (before they start) and I will put it into an Excel table. Then, after the games will be over, we can count points for successful predictions.
