Northern Ireland rank outsiders for European competition

Kick-off for the European Championships is almost upon us and Northern Ireland are among the rank outsiders for the competition - according to those in the know.

Paddy Power have Northern Ireland at 300/1 to outright win the competition - only Albania and Hungary are at longer odds on 400/1.

That's despite the Green and White Army going into the competition as the form team with 12 games unbeaten.

Hosts France are favourites with Spain, Germany and England expected to give them a run for their money.

The Republic meanwhile fall in at 100/1 and Wales are at 80s.

Northern Ireland are 25/1 to come out on top of Group C, while they are at 13/5 to qualify out of the group.

The bookmaker reckons its more likely they don't make it to the round of 16 with odds of 2/9 of them hitting the airport after the Germany game in Paris.

For each of the games:

Poland

  • Nothern Ireland are 5/1 to win
  • 12/5 for the draw
  • And 4/6 for Poland to  win
  • 66/1 if Northern Ireland come from behind to win.

Ukraine

  • 7/2 for Northern Ireland to win
  • 13/5  for the draw
  • And 3/4 for Ukraine to win
  • 70/1 for Northern Ireland to come from behind and win

Germany

  • 10/1 Northern Ireland to win
  • 5/1 for the draw
  • Germany 2/9 to win
  • 100/1 for Northern ireland to come from behind and win.

Germany are the favourites to top Group C at 13/5.

The Republic are 8/1 to win their so-called "group of death" with Belgium, Italy and Sweden. They are at 11/10 to qualify out of the group.

England are favourites to top their group alongside Wales, Slovakia and Russia with odds of 4/5. The three lions are 1/16 to qualify. Wales are 13/2 to win the group and 8/11 to qualify from it.

Top goalscorer

Kyle Lafferty is at 175/1 to top the scoring charts for the tournament.

And despite Will Grigg being on fire - he is 400/1 to end the tournament as top goalscorer.

Germany's Thomas Muller and Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo are both favourites at 7/1 to come out as top scorers.
