In fact, dark horses Italy are now favourites after beating Belgium in their quarter-final, say the numbers from Stats Perform.

Roberto Mancini’s side have looked in imperious form since day one of the tournament after beating Turkey 3-0.

Italy then thumped Switzerland 3-0 before beating Wales 1-0 to top their group with a maximum nine points.

They then won their last 16 and quarter-final ties 2-1 against Austria and Belgium respectively.

And thanks to their 100 per cent record, the supercomputer has given the Italians a 39.8 per cent chance of winning the tournament.

England come in second-favourites having won all but one match – the 0-0 group stage draw with Scotland – with a 29.4 per cent shot.

Spain rank third with a 22.4 per cent chance of going all the way, with Denmark the outsiders with a mere 8.4 per cent shot.



Despite being favourites to win Euro 2020, Italy are NOT the most-likely team to progress to the final, according to the supercomputer.

Thanks to their tougher-looking semi-final against 2008 and 2012 champions Spain, Italy have a 65.8 per cent chance of reaching Sunday’s showdown at Wembley.

England, meanwhile, have a 73.5 per cent shot of making the July 11 encounter, according to the stats.

Spain have a 34.2 per cent chance and Denmark just 26.5 per cent, says the number-crunching computer.

England take on Denmark on Wednesday night at Wembley, while Italy face Spain at the same stadium on Tuesday night.
