The Golden Boot is awarded to the top scorer at the European Championship, so here we take a look at the best Euro 2020 top scorer odds. Some of the continent’s top marksmen have been in action this summer, while some of the biggest names in world football have claimed this prize in years gone by.
Cristiano Ronaldo was joint-top scorer at Euro 2012, and he shares that status once again nine years on. The mercurial Portuguese forward contributed five goals up to the round of 16, when his country was knocked out by Belgium. Ronaldo’s tally took his total haul in European Championships to 14, a record for any player and five more than the next highest scorer, Michel Platini.
Ronaldo is 7/4 to win another share of the Golden Boot, with Czech Republic striker Patrik Schick also on five goals for the tournament. He too is 7/4 in the Euro 2020 top scorer odds, as he has no chance of adding to his tally after his country lost to Denmark in the quarter-finals.
The Danish Dynamite have exploded into life in this tournament, although their progression has been based on a superb team ethic rather than any individual stars. Kasper Dolberg has three goals to his name, but with England up next in the semi-finals and then either Italy or Spain in the final should the Danes get there, his price of 45/1 appears a real long shot in the Euro 2020 top scorer odds.

Harry Kane has found his scoring touch in the knockout rounds, netting three times in England’s two victories over Germany and Ukraine. The Three Lions captain is no stranger to hot streaks, and of the players still remaining in contention, he probably looks best placed to threaten Ronaldo and Schick at a price of 8/1 with William Hill.
Like Kane, Raheem Sterling is also on three goals so far at this tournament. Given the English forward’s excellent form, he also comes into play at 13/1 as part of the best Euro 2020 top scorer odds. Sterling scored England’s first three goals of this competition, and having grown up under the Wembley arch, is one of the favourites for the Player of the Tournament award.
Italy and Spain lock horns in the first semi-final on Tuesday. Neither team has a player who’s managed to score more than two goals so far. With a minimum of three goals needed to at least claim a share of the Golden Boot, the chances of either country producing a winner in the Euro 2020 top scorer odds appear minimal.
It’s not impossible though, for a player like Alvaro Morata or Ciro Immobile. Both Spain and Italy have been creating plenty of chances, but these two strikers, and particularly Morata, have spurned a number of opportunities.
However, if the Juventus man can sharpen up in front of goal, he is available with some bookmakers as long as 149/1 in the Euro 2020 top scorer odds. Immobile is best priced at 50/1, as he looks to reignite his tournament following a blistering start. Azzurri team mate Lorenzo Insigne is available at 99/1 in this market, after netting a spectacular effort in Italy’s quarter-final triumph over Belgium.
