EURO 2024 Semifinal Odds (July 10) – Netherlands vs. England Predictions

Bukayo Saka of England celebrates scoring his team's first goal with teammate Luke Shaw during the UEFA EURO 2024 quarter-final match between England and Switzerland at Düsseldorf Arena on July 06, 2024 in Dusseldorf, Germany.

With one finalist determined on Tuesday in a massive clash between Spain and France, the other will emerge from Wednesday’s semifinal between the Netherlands and England.

It is somewhat fitting that two of the more iconic fan bases will meet in Dortmund, where the famous yellow wall will take on a different hue for a day. Will it be orange or red/white that moves on to the EURO 2024 final on Sunday?

Given how smoothly, more-or-less, they have navigated the knockout rounds, it is hard to recall that the Netherlands nearly didn’t get out of the group. Ronald Koeman’s side finished third behind Austria and France in Group D.

The Oranje sailed through the Round of 16, handing Romania a 3-0 defeat. They fell behind in the first half of their quarterfinal against Turkey, but a pair of goals in the final 20 minutes – Stefan De Vrij in the 70th and a Mert Muldur own-goal in the 76th – saw them over that hurdle as well.

Matches featuring the Dutch have been some of the more free-flowing in Germany. Through five games, just three clean sheets, out of 10 possible, have been registered. The Netherlands themselves have scored nine goals—only Germany and Spain have scored more—and their five goals conceded are only one fewer than the other three semifinalists combined.

Wednesday will be their sixth EURO semifinal and the first since 2004. The Netherlands have been eliminated at this stage four times, the only exception being EURO 1988 when they won it all.

While the goals have flowed for the Dutch, they have been hard to come by for the English, averaging just one goal per match in Germany. Gareth Southgate’s side has if one believes the domestic media, limped to this stage. England topped their group by scoring just twice, drawing their final two matches, and then needed a late equalizer from Jude Bellingham to send their Round of 16 match against Slovakia to extra time, where Harry Kane scored what proved to be the game-winner in the first minute.

Switzerland, too, took the lead against England, with Breel Embolo cracking open that tight contest in the 75th minute, only for Bukayo Saka to equalize five minutes later. Extra time could not separate the sides, sending the match to spot kicks where Manuel Akanji’s miss ceded the advantage to the English, who were perfect to secure a second-straight semifinal appearance. England’s win over Denmark at this stage of EURO 2020 was their first, having lost in 1968 and 1996.

Although much maligned, England’s defence has been sound, conceding just three goals. This will be an interesting clash between two ideologies: beat the opponent by outscoring them versus not conceding.

Neither team has any suspensions to consider and is about as fit as one can expect to be at this point of the month-long competition. England have, however, played a full hour more, with the match going to extra time in both knockout rounds to date.

The two sides have met 22 times with the Netherlands winning seven and England six. The most recent was in 2019, the semifinal of the UEFA Nations League, when the Dutch emerged victorious by a 3-1 scoreline. England took the lead through Marcus Rashford, but the Netherlands equalized through Matthijs de Ligt and scored twice in extra time.

In the nine matches since 2000, the English have won just once – a friendly in 2018 – with four draws and three Dutch victories. This will be the fourth meeting at a major tournament, with each side winning once and drawing the other. The most recent was a group stage meeting at EURO 1996, where England won 4-1 at Wembley Stadium.

Game Bets To Consider

  • The line is suitably tight in this one, with England slight favourites. For a little extra kick, have a look at Game Result/Both Teams to Score: Netherlands/Yes comes in at +580 and England/Yes at +510. In the four knockout matches featuring these teams, there has only been one where neither team found the back of the net. All four of those matches have featured at least two goals, while three of them have seen three. Backing either side to win alongside the over is another tempting option.
  • Betano is also offering enhanced odds on Both Teams to Score in the second Half – Yes, at +285. Seven of the 11 goals between the two sides in the knockout rounds have been scored in the second half, so some late drama is to be expected in this one.
  • Enhanced odds of +440 are also available on Score Anytime – Jude Bellingham. Bellingham has scored twice in the tournament, and has been clutch for the English at EURO 2024. For the Dutch, it’s hard to look past Cody Gakpo. His three goals have him joint-top in the Golden Boot race, alongside three others – Georges Mikautadze (Georgia), Jamal Musiala (Germany), and Ivan Schranz (Slovakia) – all of whom have already been eliminated. Gakpo has the shortest odds to finish as Top Goalscorer at +150, with England’s Harry Kane (two goals, +600) and Bellingham (two goals, +1400) also set to feature on the day.
