UEFA EURO 2020 Group A in focus: Italy at the top of the class, followed by Switzerland, Turkey, Wales
First Group A match is June 11.
When the UEFA European Championship finally kicks off a year later than expected Friday, it will be two Group A teams on the pitch in Rome getting us underway.
One of those teams has a real shot to come home with a EURO 2020 title: Italy.
The Italian side has seen their odds drop from +1100 to +800 to win the tournament in the last few weeks, based on some very good results in the friendlies and qualifiers.
The rest of the group could be an interesting battle to see who finishes second and moves into the knockout stages, and maybe who finishes third with a shot to advance as well.
