England advanced to the quarterfinals with relative ease in spite of playing against Germany in the previous round. They now take on Ukraine, which also exceeded expectations to reach the advanced rounds of Euro 2020. In the other quarterfinal, Denmark and the Czech Republic hope to continue their excellent streak and return to the semi finals for the first time in decades.
Denmark Hopes to Extend High-Scoring Streak
Denmark started the tournament poorly and was minutes away from elimination but returned to their winning ways. They’ve been unstoppable in the last matches and scored four times in the last two wins. This should boost their confidence ahead of the match against the Czech Republic, one of the other overachievers of the tournament. Punters who bet on their victory will be paid at 11/10 by bet365 Sports.
The Czech Republic is the revelation of the tournament, with an impressive track record in the group stage. The 2-0 victory over the Netherlands was a shock many for punters, who now get odds of 27/10 on another upset victory. The Czech Republic are underdogs in this fixture, but they have a healthy starting formation featuring the best players. The match has the potential of turning into a goalscoring festival.
England is Huge Favorite ahead of Ukraine Clash
Defeating Germany in the round of last 16 was not exactly a surprise if we look at the odds offered by bookmakers. England is now priced at only 2/5 to defeat Ukraine, the lowest are things got throughout the entire tournament. They are in fact the new favorites to lift the trophy, with odds of roughly 2/1 at 888 Sport and other top bookmakers.
Ukraine won a single match in regulation time at Euro 2020 and had to fight hard for every point at in the tournament. In the wake of their victory over Sweden, they were convinced once more that defense wins games. The Ukrainians are likely to stick to the same strategy and feel the defensive starting formation with only two strikers. If they manage to cause an upset, punters who bet on them will be paid at 8/1.
