England emerges as favorite to win UEFA Euro 2024 in Sportradar AI simulations

A series of AI-driven data simulations conducted by sports technology company Sportradar, pointed to England as the team most likely to win the upcoming UEFA Euro 2024 football tournament.

In a recent dispatch, Sportradar indicated that its AI technology ran 10,000 comprehensive simulations for each of the 51 matches in the upcoming Euro 2024 tournament, set to start on July 14th.

In these simulations, England emerged as the winner in 2,400 instances, revealing a 24 percent probability of winning the championship. This puts Gareth Southgate’s team ahead of other top contenders like France and Germany.

“Our AI-powered analysis has given us a detailed forecast of how the Euro 2024 tournament could unfold,” said Carsten Koerl, Sportradar’s Global CEO. “While anything can happen on the pitch, the data suggests England has a significant chance of clinching the trophy this year.”

Sportradar’s simulations leveraged betting insights from its global network of 900 sportsbook operators, inputting tens of thousands of data points into its AI algorithm. This facilitated an in-depth analysis of historical trends and enabled the anticipation of future scenarios within the tournament’s regulations.

In addition to England’s favorable outlook, Sportradar’s AI simulations also identified France’s Kylian Mbappe as the player most likely to win the Golden Boot. Out of 10,000 simulations, the Frenchman came out as the top goal scorer on 1,519 instances, slightly ahead of England’s Harry Kane who was selected 1,477 times.

Other English players who stood out in the AI projections include Jude Bellingham and Phil Foden, who were identified as top performers in 453 and 288 simulations, respectively.

The UEFA Euro 2024 tournament will be held in Germany, marking the first time the country has hosted the event since the 1988 edition. The tournament will feature 24 teams competing across 10 host cities, with the final taking place at the Olympiastadion in Berlin on July 14th.
