After a victorious game in Rome, the England team heads back to London for the second semi-final of the Euro 2020. Where Gareth Southgate’s men will meet the Danish team which has inspired the whole nation with its superb performance. The England vs Denmark betting preview favors the hosts to win the game, but everything is possible in this tournament as we can already witness.
Denmark won 2-1 against the Czech Republic in the quarter-final and got to the semi-final for the first time since 1992. Then the team managed to win the whole tournament causing a huge surprise for all football fans. Now their victory against England would be an even bigger shock. Especially playing in Wembley in front of 60,000 local fans. Who are hoping for their favorites next win after their 4-0 victory over Ukraine. Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling and the rest of the team can make history if they reach the European Championship final for the first time in the country’s history. But surely Denmark will have a say on that and will fight for glory as well.
England vs Denmark betting preview highly favor the hosts
England have been very confident so far in this year’s European Championship even if they didn’t play that spectacularly. The team only scored four goals in four games before the quarter-final but did double it there. Harry Kane finally came to life and scored a brace against Ukraine, who never meant any real threat for the English goal. Not conceding any goal until the semi-final is a very impressive result from the Three Lions. Thanks to the superb performances of central-backs Harry Maguire and John Stones. With their lead the English defense seems unbreakable, while Jordan Pickford in the goal is also very reliable.
England have a huge pool of talented players all fighting for a place in the starting eleven. It will be interesting to see who will be chosen by Gareth Southgate this time. Will he stick with Phillips and Rice in the midfield, or will Grealish, Sancho or Henderson start? Anyway, online sportsbooks in the UK expect an English win with the odds of 1.72. Most experts don’t expect too many goals though in their England vs Denmark betting preview. Which makes sense due to the great English defense and the latest results of the two teams. Where first they drew 0-0 in Denmark in a Nations League match. Then the guests did defeat England 1-0 in Wembley last year.
Can Denmark surprise the world again?
Football fans in the Scandinavian country remember well the first and so far only success of their national team. As in Euro 1992, Denmark won the tournament after beating Germany in the final. Now their victory against England would also mean reaching the final for the second time in the country’s history. But it will be a very tough task to win against England who will be supported by 60,000 fans. In the group stage Denmark also had the advantage of playing in front of their own supporters, which surely helped them through in their most difficult times.
Since the dramatic collapse of Christian Eriksen, the team seems to play better and better in every game. Denmark beat Wales and the Czech Republic in the knockout stage easily. Now the team will try to continue its winning streak against England. Online gambling sites in the UK don’t think it’s very likely though. As they offer the odds of 5.25 for the Danish victory. But as Kasper Hjulmand’s team has already shown, they can beat England. They will need top performances from players like Kasper Dolberg who scored three goals so far. And probably from the Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, who can follow the steps of his legendary dad, Peter Schmeichel by reaching the final.
