    Tuchel is a god, look how he turned around this team when he took over. There are definitely a few people on City that really derserved to win the UCL but you can't not say the same about Chelsea. The heart and passion is all there, without gettng too carried away, as soon as we improve our finishing we are going to be a very dangerous club for the next few years.

    that will be a shock...even as favourites....they usually choke under pressure...they have plenty of home games at group stage and...if they get to semis/finals...they finish 1st in their group they will get Germany,France or Portugal....they may want to finish 2nd lol

    France will be tough to beat...

    but I’m takin Portugal Belgium, Italy to win it all...I think 1 of them do it this year

    Hahaha I think they are all really balanced teams...if they get the right draw in knockout stages they can go far or win it all

    should be a good first game...turkey is solid...I’m going to say a tie...1-1...what’s your prediction?

    Italy typically start slow and then heat up...if they are going far

    I say Italy/Turkey finish 1/2 in this group

    @aleeex1972 who is your sleeper in this tournament? That isn’t 1 of the top favourites?

    I think Denmark/Austria have the teams to surprise and maybe goto quarterfinals

    3-1 for Italy that was my prediction all day long lol.

    Great game. Turkey got simply outclassed.
    Also Fun fact : is the first in Italy's history at EUROs when they scored 3 goals in a game.

    Hmm. I'll say Ukraine/Wales.

    Also hear me out on this one: Hungary will not finish last in the group with France, Portugal and Germany.

    that’s a big time take. That would be shocking...considering the talent on those teams

    Ukraine a good pick...let’s see Wales can do it again...last euros they went on quite the run

    Yup that's what are known for, but how they played today Jesus they looked more like Brazil in their prime then Italy lol

    I think they should not have any issues in winning all three games, maybe a draw in the last game if they already went through after two games.
