Euro 2024 kicks off this evening with Germany vs Scotland being the opening match of the tournament. The hosts are one of the bookies favourites this year but they have stiff competition from the likes of England, France, Belgium, and Spain.

Spain head into the tournament under the management of Luis de la Fuente and a squad consisting of a blend of seasoned players and emerging talents. They’ve won the competition 3 times, tied with Germany for the most titles, and they’re certainly not a team to write off in this tournament.

Luis de la Fuente took over from Luis Enrique in 2022 and brought with him his experience from managing Spain’s under-19 and under-21 teams. After winning the Nations League in 2023, de la Fuente will look to guide his side to their first European Championship victory since 2012. They’re certainly a team capable of achieving that and Spain are one of many experts Euro 2024 tips to go all the way this year.

Qualifying For Euro 2024

Spain had an impressive qualifying campaign for Euro 2024, finishing at the top of their group with 21 points from a possible 24. They won seven out of their eight matches, with their only defeat coming at the hands of Scotland who they finished 4 points ahead of in Group A of qualifying.

Possible Golden Boot Winners

Spain have a wealth of attacking talent, which was evident during qualifying, where they averaged over 3 goals a game. They have several players who are capable of winning the Golden Boot at Euro 2024 and many of them are at somewhat surprising odds to do so.

Alvaro Morata

Team captain, Alvaro Morata, is expected to lead Spain’s attack at Euro 2024. The Atlético Madrid striker is 29/1 to win the Golden Boot this summer which seems like a big price. He’s scored 21 goals in 48 appearances for Atlético this season, along with 34 goals in 71 national appearances throughout his career, and one of the more likely players to get on the scoresheet in Spain’s matches throughout the Euros.

Lamine Yamal

At just 16 years old, Lamine Yamal could become the youngest player to feature in a European Championship. The Barcelona winger might not be the main target man for Spain, but he’s certainly proven he can perform at the highest level and will be keen to make a name for himself in his first senior major tournament.

Lamine Yamal is priced as high as 71/1 to claim the Golden Boot at Euro 2024.


Joselu is an outside option for the Euro 2024 Golden Boot winner at odds of 101/1. The on-loan Real Madrid striker has been in top form this season, scoring 17 goals in 49 appearances. He’s also bagged 5 goals in 11 games for Spain and should he get given the chance, could be worth backing each way as the top goalscorer.
