Top Scorers Of Euro 2024: Who The Odds Predict?

Top Scorers Of Euro 2024: Who The Odds Predict?

The stage for the Euro 2024 is set, a tournament featuring some of the best and most talented players in football. During the game, teams vie to win the trophy, as usual, but not only that. There’s also an award that goes to the top scorer of the tournament called the Golden Boot, given to individual players. 

As a result, punters involved in online sports betting don’t only place wagers on the winner of the event itself but also on players with higher chances of winning the top-scorer title. With the tournament sporting several talented footballers such as Lukaku, Schick, McTominay, etc, those players who have a shot at winning this title are not limited to only one. 

 

Romelu Lukaku (Belgium) 

Let’s begin with Romelu Lukaku, the Belgian player who showcased himself in the qualifiers for this tournament. Having scored 14 goals during the qualifying campaign, he broke the record for the most goals scored during single European Championship qualifiers run. As such, he takes the top spot on the list of contenders for the Golden boot.

Moreover, considering Lukaku is Belgium’s all-time top-scorer, the 31-year-old is sure to showcase himself in his sixth major tournament with the Red Devils. He is definitely someone to look out for. 

Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal)

What is a Euro top-scorer contender list if the ‘World Best’ is not on it? Cristiano Ronaldo, referred to as the GOAT by fans, is another talented player with a high potential to win this year’s Golden Boot, and it won’t be his first. 

Already holding the title from the last Euro tournament, the Portuguese footballer is expected to strive to defend his Euro 2020 Golden Boot title. Despite being eliminated in the round of 16, CR7 scored 5 goals and had 1 assists which proved enough to win the individual award.

Patrik Schick (Czechia)

Another player who made headlines in the Euro 2020 tournament is Patrik Schick, the Czech player. He had a standout performance after making an astonishing midfield scoring strike against Scotland. 

Also, scoring five goals in the last tourney, which was equal to Cristiano Ronaldo’s tally, Schick almost won the top-scorer title. However, because Ronaldo had an assist to support his goals, whereas Schick had none, Schick would have been the current holder of the Boot. 

 

This year Schick will actually face Portugal in the group stage so he will have a chance to go head-to-head with CR7. Besides Portugal, Czechia has quite an accessible group in Turkey and debutants Georgia, so expect Schick so score a few goals. Not only that, but Schick is now a Bundesliga champion after Bayer Leverkusen won the league so his confidence must be over the top.

Kylian Mbappe (France)

The fast-rising talent who took the world by storm, scoring back-to-back goals for his club, PSG, is ready to prove his worth for his country. Scoring an impressive 46 goals in only 77 appearances for Les Bleus, Kylian Mbappe may also have a shot at winning the top-scorer title. 

A quick flashback reminds punters of his prowess in the 2022 World Cup final, where he scored a hat-trick, revealing that he is talented at what he does. 

Harry Kane (England)

Harry Kane is a player actively looking for his first major trophy, which makes him a force to be reckoned with in the Euro 2024. His form in the pre-Euro friendlies revealed he is fully prepared to end England’s 58 years of trophy drought. Also, with a record of 44 goals in 45 games in his not-so-new team, Bayern Munich, Harry Kane may just be the one to hold the boot at the end of the tourney. 

Cody Gakpo (Netherlands)

Cody Gakpo holds the high hopes of Netherlands football fans, being the prolific footballer he is. This Liverpool forward already has nine goals in his international appearances, and there’s a chance that will increase in the 2024 tourney. If he displays an impressive performance, he just might win the Golden Boot award, ahead of even Cristiano Ronaldo. 

Robert Lewandowski (Poland)

Robert Lewandowski is proof that age is but a number, especially in a sport where age and injuries are not really on any player’s side. Having broken the hearts of Welsh fans in the qualifying play-offs, the 35-year-old secured Poland’s place in the tourney. 

Lewandowski has scored over 600 goals for both club and country in his career spanning 19 years. It is, therefore, possible that the Barcelona striker will add the Golden Boot trophy to his already crowded cabinet of trophies. 

Scott McTominay (Scotland)

Scotland qualified for their second successive European Championship, with Scott McTominay scoring seven goals in the campaign, finishing as his country’s top-scorer. If this Scottish player can repeat the same run in the tournament, he may be the next Golden Boot title holder. 

Final Words 

 

Barring injuries and other unforeseen circumstances, the above players have high odds of winning the Golden Boot title. Sure, it remains to see what the future has in store, but one thing is for sure: the tournament will be filled with goals.
