Euro 2016's 107 goals so far lowest at European Championship in 20 years

Euro 2016 has been the lowest scoring European Championship for 20 years.

The ongoing tournament in France, which culminates with Sunday night's final between the hosts and Portugal, has seen 107 goals from 50 games so far.

The expansion of the competition from 16 to 24 teams has seen the average goals per game drop to 2.14 ahead of its concluding clash.

At Euro 2000, the average for a 16-team, 31-match event peaked at 2.74 goals.

The knockout stages at Euro 2016 have approached that level with an average of 2.71 goals -- boosted by games like France's 5-2 win over Iceland in the quarterfinals.

However, the expanded group stage dragged down the average with just 69 goals in 36 games -- an average of 1.92.

The average goal tally at the past three tournaments was consistently between 2.45 and 2.48 per game.
