Denmark v England Betting Odds: Who to Back in the Euro 2020 Semi-Final
Three Lions Target Semi-Final Win on Home Soil
The Three Lions eased into the semi-finals with a comfortable 4-0 win over Ukraine on July 3.
Having scored his first goal of the tournament in the quarter-finals against Germany, Harry Kane wasted no time at all in grabbing his second by lashing the ball home from close range inside the opening five minutes.
Harry Maguire added a second for the Three Lions less than a minute into the second half. Four minutes later Kane doubled his tally by converting Luke Shaw’s perfect cross.
Substitute Jordan Henderson provided England’s fourth goal of the evening to cap off a stellar performance in Rome where they also secured a fifth consecutive clean sheet as they continued to show defensive solidarity.
The Danes have now held 1-0 leads at half-time in their last three outings and are slowly becoming recognised a team that looks to set the tone of a match quickly.
Thomas Delaney broke the deadlock on five minutes heading home Jens Stryger Larsen’s pinpoint corner. Denmark almost conceded shortly afterwards but Kasper Schmeichel proved unbeaten.
A smooth counterattack, and a delightful outside of the boot cross from Joakim Mæhle, provided the Danes with their second as Kasper Dolberg was on hand to tumble the ball over the line.
The Danes started the second half slowly with the Czechs flying out of the traps: Patrik Schick was reeled onto the end of Vladimir Coufal’s cross to hand the Czech Republic a lifeline.
A strong Danish rearguard ensured the Czechs were unable to force extra-time and sent the Scandinavian side into their third-ever semi-final.

Those looking to make a punt can back the Tottenham Hotspur man to score first with 3/1 at both bet365 and PaddyPower.
Will England Keep a Clean Sheet?
Having kept a clean sheet in each of their matches of the European Championships so far, England are showing a great amount of defensive solidarity.
The Three Lions are yet to concede at the Euros and last conceded in March 2021 in a 2-1 victory over Poland.
It is no surprise, therefore, that the bookies are offering slim betting odds on the Three Lions keeping a clean sheet in England v Denmark.
Having enjoyed a run of seven games without conceding, backing Jordan Pickford and his trusty defence to keep another clean sheet is available at 1/1 with bet365, PaddyPower and William Hill.
