Euro 2020 semis odds suggest it’s coming home for England

Share

England and Italy are the bookmakers’ favourites to win their semi-finals and meet in the showpiece at Wembley.

The Three Lions will take on Denmark in the tournament’s semi-final at Wembley on Wednesday night.

Gareth Southgate’s men offer little value to win the match at 4/6. The Danes, on the other hand, have been priced as the clear underdogs at 4/1.

One bet which could interest England fans is to back Luke Shaw to produce an assist at 31/10. The Manchester United full-back has three assists to his name at Euro 2020 – two of them coming against Ukraine in the quarter-final.

With Jordan Pickford yet to concede at the tournament, one bet which certainly looks tempting is England to win to nil at 6/4.

For Denmark, this will be their first semi-final appearance at a major event since Euro 1992. The Danes went on to lift the trophy that year after getting the better of Germany in the final.

It’s worth mentioning that during their way to lifting the trophy, Denmark won their semi-final against Netherlands via a penalty shootout.

The Scandinavian outfit are currently priced at 10/1 to do the same against England at Wembley.

Revenge on the cards for Italy?

Italy are slight favourites in the betting ahead of Tuesday’s semi-final clash with Spain.

Roberto Mancini’s team are priced at around 6/4 to triumph at Wembley and book their spot in the Euro 2020 final.

The Italians certainly haven’t forgotten their 4-0 defeat to the Spaniards in the final of the 2012 tournament.

The likes of Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini were both on the pitch during that capitulation in Kiev.

However, this Italian side is a completely different animal compared to the one nine years ago. Having gone 32 games unbeaten, this is a side overflowing with confidence.

Spain, on the other hand, have improved in the goal scoring department, but obvious defensive vulnerabilities could leave them exposed at Wembley.

With that in mind, Italy to win and both teams to score could be the way to go at around 17/4. If, however, you prefer to back Spain, it’s worth checking the winner and match portion market.

The Spaniards are priced at 10/1 to win the match in extra-time – something they’ve already done in the knockout stages of this tournament, winning 5-3 against Croatia.
