Another triple-header of Euro 2020 action awaits soccer fans on Sunday with teams in Group C and Group D starting their campaigns.

The day begins with England taking on Croatia at 9am ET in a repeat of the 2018 World Cup semi-final with the Three Lions playing their first of three group matches at Wembley, before Austria takes on tournament debutants North Macedonia at noon ET.

Under former Atlanta United coach Frank de Boer, the Netherlands then tackle Ukraine at 3pm ET and we have compiled a three-game parlay for the second full day of action at the tournament.

Parlay odds: +1529

Now let’s take a look at each leg of the Sunday Euro 2020 parlay and give the reasoning behind each selection:

England to beat Croatia (-150), 9am ET

There is cautious optimism around England going into its opening matchup at Euro 2020, a repeat of the 2018 World Cup semi-final against Croatia which the Croats won 2-1 in extra-time after a 1-1 tie.

Croatia triumphed in that game in Moscow but it has been on a steady decline since, losing five of six matches in the most recent edition of the Nations League.

Zlatko Dalic’s men also looked uninspiring in their recent trio of World Cup qualifiers, beating lowly Malta 3-0 but losing to Slovenia and edging past Cyprus 1-0.

They are an aging group of players and although England’s defense has issues which could be exposed later in the tournament, the Three Lions have enough offensive quality in Harry Kane, Phil Foden, Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford and Raheem Sterling, among others, to win this match.

Austria to win & both teams to score v North Macedonia (+360), 12pm ET

North Macedonia is making its first appearance at a major tournament in this summer’s European Championship but, unlike the underdogs of previous years, it can be expected to play with an emphasis on offense.

The nation, which has a population of just over two million people, made a great start to the recent World Cup qualifiers, thrashing Liechtenstein 5-0 before beating Germany 2-1 in Duisburg.

North Macedonia followed that with a 4-0 thrashing of Kazakhstan in a pre-tournament friendly and could be more dangerous than spectators expect.

The underdogs can get on the scoresheet against Austria, but the favourites are primed to impress with Real Madrid’s David Alaba and Leipzig’s Marcel Sabitzer, and the Austrians should just have too much and can come out on top.

Both teams to score in Netherlands vs. Ukraine (+112), 3pm ET

After failing to qualify for both Euro 2016 and the 2018 World Cup, the Netherlands is back at a major tournament and has been drawn in one of the easier groups along with Ukraine, Austria and North Macedonia.

The Dutch are expected to storm this group and finish on top but bettors should not rush to back them in their opener against a tricky Ukraine side.

Ukraine finished above Serbia and reigning European champions Portugal in its qualifying group for the tournament, winning six of eight matches. Although results have been inconsistent since, the Ukrainians remain an exciting side in terms of their offense.

Andriy Yarmolenko and Viktor Tsyhankov are players to watch while Memphis Depay is a dangerous player for the Netherlands, having scored 20 goals in the French top division last season. Expect goals and back both teams to score.
