England will be aiming to make history this week as Gareth Southgate’s side bid for a place in their first ever European Championship final at Wembley. England take on Euro 92 winners Denmark in front of their home fans in London.

Past Meetings

The Danes edged out a 1-0 win in their 2020 UEFA Nations League clash with England in November, in their first victory over the Three Lions since 2005. Follow the Spin Sports blog to see who will reach the final as we delve deeper into online football betting.

Team News

Denmark boss Kasper Hjulmand has named an unchanged side for Denmark’s first two knockout games and he is likely to stick with the same team in London.

Southgate is likely to be without Bukayo Saka again after the Arsenal winger missed England’s quarter final win over Ukraine, but he could tweak his starting line-up to match Denmark’s tactical formation.

Denmark vs. England Preview and Predictions

Denmark have stepped up a gear as the Euro 2020 competition has moved into the knockout stages, with a final group game 4-1 victory over Russia sealing their last-16 place.

Hjulmand’s side easily saw off Wales with a 4-0 win in the last 16 before edging to a 2-1 victory over the Czech Republic in the last eight.

England’s consistent form has remained in place from the start of the competition, with four wins and a draw from five games so far.

Southgate’s side topped Group D with seven points and picked up a morale-boosting 2-0 win over arch rivals Germany, before breezing past Ukraine with a 4-0 quarter final victory.

Both sides have impressed so far in the tournament and there is a sense they may cancel each other out inside 90 minutes, with a draw inside normal time coming in at a price of 3.70.

There’s no doubt England are the favourites though, with the Three Lions priced at 1.71 for the win and the Danish Dynamite available at 5.25.

Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling both have three tournament goals so far at Euro 2020, with Danish star Kasper Dolberg also netted three so far at this summer’s competition.

Recommended Bets

0-0 draw after 90 minutes at 7.00

England’s defensive record has been perfect so far at Euro 2020, with five consecutive clean sheets including four games at Wembley. However, Denmark’s defensive record has improved in recent matches with an average of less than one goal per game in their last three outings in Copenhagen, Amsterdam and Baku.

Both teams not to score 1.58

Aside from their 4-0 win over Ukraine to reach the last four, England have been one of the lowest scorers in the competition with just two from their three group games, both from Sterling. That pattern continued against Germany with a late Sterling/Kane double preventing extra-time. Their excellent defensive record in the competition, allied to an ability to remain patient in key games, means both sides could be willing to let this game go all the way into the high stakes of extra-time and potentially a nerve-wracking penalty shootout.
