Netherlands vs England best bet: Tie (+180)

England secured a dramatic passage to the semifinals of Euro 2024 after getting the better of Switzerland on penalties. That came after the Three Lions had gone 1-0 down to a Breel Embolo finish from close range. Bukayo Saka netted a late equalizer but on the whole England’s performance was not a dramatic improvement upon their first 4 games. They threatened little going forward for a team with the attacking quality at their disposal and Saka’s goal was their first shot on target in the 80th minute. It remains to be seen if Gareth Southgate will stick with a 3-man defense for this game with Marc Guehi set to return from suspension. Southgate’s men have only beaten Serbia in 90 minutes at the tournament and will need to improve once more against a Netherlands team that has impressed after a poor group-stage performance.

The Dutch were 3-0 winners over Romania in the Last 16 before coming from 1-0 down to defeat a spirited Turkish team in the quarterfinals. Cody Gakpo is leading the way in the tournament scoring charts with 3 goals and the Dutch have netted 9 times in 5 games, 4 more than England. They won the Euros in 1988 but this is their first time reaching the semifinals since 2004. 4 of the last 8 games between these 2 teams have ended as a tie but the Netherlands won the last meeting 3-1, a Nations League clash in 2019. Both of England’s knockout games in this competition have gone to extra time and it looks a solid pick to be the case once more against the Netherlands.
