The Russian national football team faced many difficulties on its way to the European championship. The country overcame most of them, but not all its problems have disappeared. Russia Euro 2020 special bets show that it can still skip the competition or lose the right to host matches.
Last year, Russia was banned from all international championships including the major one, the World Cup 2022. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) found the country guilty in the doping usage and forbade from using its flag and anthem at any sports events. These sanctions will last for 4 years, however, Russian sportsmen who can prove their innocence in the doping scandal can participate under a neutral flag.
All these events caused rumors that Russia would lose the right to compete in the European championship too. This information is false, however, the country is still under risk of losing some benefits. Russia Euro 2020 special bets will show what can affect the country badly.
Russians can lose their right to host Euro 2020
The WADA sanctions not only exclude Russia from participating in sports events, but also forbid the country to host them. Therefore, online sportsbooks in Russia predict that the country can still lose the right to host Euro 2020 matches. Currently, four games are scheduled to take place in one of its cities, St. Petersburg, including a quarterfinal and 3 matches in Group B. However, due to 11.00 odds at 1xBet Sportsbook, Belgium and Finland may play against each other and Russia at the other place.
Russia Euro 2020 special bets: to ban or not to ban?
The other popular question regarding Russia at Euro 2020 touches upon its participation. Most people are still stuck with a question: are Russians banned from the European championship too or not?
According to WADA, the UEFA European championship is not among major event organizations, which its limitations touch upon. Euro 2020 is a continental competition, which includes only one kind of sport. Therefore, the WADA sanctions don’t include banning Russia from this competition and the country still has more chances to host four matches than not. You can bet on it at 1xBet Sportsbook with 1.01 odds, if only a new doping scandal does not emerge.
