Czech Republic vs Denmark Euro 2021 Predictions and Betting Tips

Czech Republic vs Denmark Euro 2021 Predictions and Betting Tips 

Czech Republic vs Denmark will be the third game in the quarter finals of Euro 2020. The Czech Republic vs Denmark match will take place on July 3 at 1800 hrs Central Eastern European Summer Time at the Olympic Stadium in Baku,Azerbaijan.

Czech Republic Form, potential line up and Tactics

Going into the Euros, the Czech weren’t exactly in great form. They played 5 games before the euros and won just 2 of those games, lost 2 and drew 1 game. They weren’t exactly prolific in front of the goal either, scoring only 1 goal per game in their last 4 games and conceding 7 goal in these games.

The Czech however put in a decent performance during the group stage.  They qualified for the knockout stage by finishing 3rd in Group D. They had the same number of points as Croatia (4) and finished the group stage with 1 win, 1 draw and 1. The Czech scored only 3 goals during these 3 games but conceded just 2.

The Czech aslo pulled off arguably one of the best upsets in this tournament when they defeated the Netherlands in order to qualify for the quarter finals.

The Czech set up in a 4-2-3-1 formation with the wide attackers cutting inside and the wide defenders providing the width in attack. 

The midfielders like to sit deep and help out in defence and provide long balls to the attacking players when the fullbacks push high up the pitch during an attack. Vladimír Coufal is excellent at providing crossess and passes from the right. He provided an amazing cross from the right which was headed in by their star striker in their first goal in their first game in Euro 2020 against Scotland.

Their first choice midfielder is 26 year old Tomáš Souček who is an all round midfielder who is talented in protecting the defence,competing for aerial balls, creating long passess and progressing the ball forward while Alex Kral is more of a defensive midfielder who likes to stay a bit further back but can also push into the opposition box if necessary.

Their captain Vladimír Darida starts ahead of these 2 midfielders and is the attacking midfielder who sets up attacks and is an amazing creative presence in attack. Darida links up well with their star striker, 25 year old Patrik Schick.

Schick can drop deep and link up play with other attackers and is amazing in the air. Schick scored all the 3 goals for the Czech Republic during their group stage matches.

Schick is flanked by 25 year old Jakub Jankto on the left and Lukáš Masopust on the right.

The Czech like to press the opposition with these 4 attacking players when they don’t have the ball while the wide defenders fall back to form a back 4 and are given an extra layer of protection by their midfielders Souček and Kral.

The Czech have some weaknesses that are important to note. They are vulnerable to quick runs behind their center backs from quick attackers especially from wide and they don’t exactly have the most talented center backs which leaves them quite vulnerable at the back.

Czech Republic Predicted line up

Apart from the re-introduction of Kral, we expect the Czech line up to remain unchanged.

Denmark Form, Predicted line up and Tactics

Denmark are the 10th best team in the world and the 7th best team in Europe according to FIFA. They are the 5th best ranked team of the 8 teams that have qualified for the quarterfinals in Euro 2020.

Before starting their Euro 2020 campaign Denmark were in excellent form. They were unbeaten in the 5 games they played in 2021 before their opening game in Euro 2021 against Finland and finished second in their group in the 2020-21 season of the Nations League. 

Check out our predictions for the Euro 2020 Final!

Denmark’s group consisted of Belgium which is ranked number 1 by FIFA and England which is ranked as the 3rd best team in Europe. Denmark finished above England which is an indication of just how good the Danes are.

Denmark’s Performance in Euro 2020

Denmark lost it’s opening game against Finland, a side which is ranked 54th and was the team with second lowest ranking in Europe in Euro 2020. 

But this loss was an unfortunate one for Denmark considering the major incident that occurred during this game. During their game against Finland, one of Denmark’s most talented players, Christian Eriksen collapsed on the field and nearly lost his life due to a cardiac arrest.

Denmark’s Captain, Simon Kjaer acted like a true leader when Eriksen collapsed. He  dashed from his position and pushed aside other players to immediately place Eriksen into the recovery position.

Kjaer realised what was going on and worked to stop the 29-year-old from swallowing his tongue and then took the life-saving decision to start giving CPR on Eriksen. As the EMTs arrived on the pitch he rounded up his team mates to form a wall around Eriksen to protect his privacy from the prying eyes of the media.

Denmark decided to continue this match in spite of the psychological shock they endured as a team and registered 22 attempts on goal compared to Finland’s one and only attempt.

Denmark would lose their second match against Belgium 1-2 but in spite of losing against the best ranked team in the world, the Danes put up a good fight registering 21 attempts compared to Belgium’s 6.

Denmark’s game against Russia was where Denmark started to truly shine though. They thrashed Russia 4-1 to qualify for the round of 16 as runners up of their group.

Denmark was arguably the most attacking team to qualify for the knockout stage as they had the highest number of attempts.

The Danes would replicate their form in their first knockout game against Wales, which they won 4-0 to book a place in the quarter finals against the Czech Republic.

Denmark has some pretty impressive stats that would make you want to watch them play:

Denmark is tied with Italy on the second highest scoring team after bagging 9 goals in 4 games.Denmark has the second highest number of shots per game.Denmark has made the second highest number of dribbles per game amongst all the teams that are currently in the quarterfinals and the third highest of all the teams in Euro 2020.

Denmark tactics

Denmark has been lining up in a 3-4-3 for their last 3 games. The Danes use this formation in a very interesting way. The 2 central midfielders tend to stay compact and not burst forward to join the attack. 

If Denmark decides to pile on the pressure and one of the midfielders notices a gap in the opposition box that can be exploited he will run into it. But once this midfielder vacates that space One of the two wide center backs will occupy that position to prevent counter attacks.

In the game against Wales Andreas Christensen could be seen doing exactly that when he would progress up the midfield.

Denmark’s center backs are excellent on the ball and unlike most teams, it can be argued that the center backs are the primary source for progressing the ball forward instead of the midfield.

If the opposition forwards press the center backs, then the midfield takes over this role.

This is an excellent advantage for Denmark because it allows them to progress the ball from multiple areas without any problem.

As you can see from the image below, Denmark can have 5 players in attack and 4 players in midfield when they are attacking. This daring tactic allows them to have a numerical advantage in midfield.

Czech Republic vs Denmark Euro 2021 Predictions

The Czech Republic vs Denmark could turn out to be one of the most interesting matches in Euro 2020 in our opinion and we will give you all the reasons why…

Both the teams apply tactics that can give an advantage to one team over the other. For instance if you remember correctly, the Czech love to press quite aggressively with their 4 attackers while the Danes like to progress the ball with their defenders.

This would mean that the Danes will have to be very careful while progressing the ball from the ball as they would have numerical disadvantage on their own half (Denmark will have 3 at the back vs the Czech’s 4 attackers)

But the Danes will have an advantage in midfield if the manage to progress the ball beyond their own half as they one or two of the center backs would move forward to join the midfield. This would help them to maintain dominance in midfield and prevent the Czech to build from the midfield when the Danes lose the ball.

When the Danes can push the Czech to their own half the Czech Republic would defend in a compact 4-5-1. 

This means that the Danes would have a numerical advantage against the Czech Republic’s defense however, this also means that if the Czech decide to be daring, they would have a numerical advantage in counter attacks because they would have 5 men there vs Denmark who will have 3.

These seemingly paradoxical styles of football could mean that we will see a very dynamic match with both teams playing a high tempo game where they have to quickly transition from defence to attack.

If we take into account the fact that the Danes have the second highest number of attempts on goal we can expect this game to have plenty of goals.

Based on the odds set by the bookmaker we can also reasonably expect this game to be a closely contested one.

Based on these facts we predict that Denmark will win but not by a huge margin in a game that will have a lot of goals.

We predict that Denmark will beat the Czech Republic 3-2.

Czech Republic vs Denmark Betting Tips

If you read our articles on football betting systems and football betting tips, you would realize Czech Republic vs Denmark is the perfect match to place a bet on in Euro 2020.

The reason for that is simple, the odds for both teams are above 2.0 and it will be a closely contested match.

This means that you can double your money by betting on Denmark and triple your money if you bet on Czech Republic.

That being said, we have a betting tip for you that could help you win some money no matter who wins…

Place one bet on Denmark to win and one bet(of equal amount) on Czech Republic  to win. In this case you only lose your money if there is a draw but that is unlikely to happen in such a crucial game.

So essentially what you do is you split your budget for the game. Let’s say you have a budget of €200 for this game. You place one bet of €100 on Denmark and another €100 on Czech Republic.

If Czech Republic wins your Profit percentage would be 92.5% because your profit would be €385-€200=€185 and 185 is 92.5% of your investment of €200.

If Denmark wins you would still end up with a 6% profit (€212-€200=€12 is 6% of 200).

Sure, this system means that your profit percentage would be lower if you just bet on one team (112 % profit if you just bet on Denmark and 285% if you just bet on Czech Republic) but this system ensures that you don’t lose any money.

Keep in mind that this is not a fool proof system. If the match ends in a draw you will lose but as we pointed out earlier, the likelihood of a draw is very low.

After nearly a month of fascinating Football this summer, we have finally reached the semi-finals of Euro 2020.

Italy vs Spain will be the first semi final match in Euro 2020. The Italy vs Spain match will take place on July 6 at 2100 hrs Central Eastern European Summer Time at the Wembley Stadium in London.

Italy’s Current Form

Italy waltzed through to the round of 16 as winners of group A, winning each of their 3 games and then followed it up with an excellent performance against Austria in the round of 16.

Italy seemed to face its first real challenge in the semi finals when they faced the best ranked team in the world, Belgium.

Belgium were in control of the game and defending with determination. Belgium were compact in defence with 5 men at the back which proved to be effective against most teams during Euro 2020. 

This is reflected in the statistics as well. Prior to facing Italy, Belgium had one of the best defensive records in the European Championship. They just conceded 1 goal in 4 games.

Belgium’s defense was effective in cancelling out one of the most attacking teams during Euro 2020, Portugal. Portugal attempted 23 shots against Belgium in the round of 16 knockout game which was arguably the highest number of attempts of any team during Euro 2020.

These facts stand as evidence of how strong Belgium’s defence was.

In our game preview for the Belgium vs Italy game we had mentioned just how talented Italy was in breaking even the tightest defences and they did exactly that in the 31st minute.

Verratti made an excellent pass to Barrella who was in the box, Barrella was being marked by 3 Belgian defenders as soon as he received the ball and then was tackled, and still managed to find his feet and instantly make a clinical shot into the far corner which caught Belgium’s goalkeeper, Courtois by surprise.

This goal demonstrates amazing athleticism and technical quality from Barrella and Italy as a team.

The second goal from Italy which was scored by Lorenzo Insigne was also a piece of technical brilliance. 

Check out our predictions for Italy vs England in the Euro 2020 final!
He dribbled from the center of the pitch and made an excellent shot past 3 Belgium defenders outside the box which was again placed excellently that beat Courtois again.

These facts clearly demonstrate Italy’s attacking prowess and their technical ability to score even against the best defenses in the world.

But apart from their amazing attacking prowess Italy also showed determination in defence.

After Belgium conceded in the 31st minute Belgium attacked Italy ruthlessly.

Belgium made 10 attempts on goal which is higher than the 8.3 attempts per game they attempted. In fact this is the second highest number of attempts they made during Euro 2020. This number is even higher than the attempts Belgium made against Portugal.

Although Belgium made several amazing attempts, and eventually scored through a penalty. In the second half Belgium were extremely ruthless in attack. Belgium were also especially quick in transitioning from defence to attack.

But the Italian defence stayed strong and the game ended 2-1.

With this win over Belgium, Italy are now undefeated in 32 games! The last time Italy lost the game was close to 3 years ago in September 2018!

With these facts in mind it seems very likely that Spain might have a hard time winning against such a talented team.

Italy Tactics

In the picture above from whoscored.com, you can see Italy positioning  in attack against Belgium. This is very much different from the way they positioned themselves usually when they are in attack when Italy tends to push much higher up the pitch, just like in the picture below:

Did you notice the difference in between the two pictures? As you can see,Italy? For starters  Jorginho (number 8) is sitting further back, in fact all the players are from their usual attacking position (which is picture 2).

The whole team is quite compact in attack. This is a good indication of discipline in Italy’s build up because if there is too much space between the players that space can be exploited by the opposition team.

Being compact in attack is hard to do because individual players can become a bit too excited while pressing without the ball or passing and running forward with the ball.

Another key difference we can see is that the right full back and the other center back have ffallen further back with the main center back and Number 6 and Number 18 (Verratti and Barrella) are closer to the wide forwards (Numbers 10 and 14) respectively.

This suggests that the 2 midfielders played close to the 2 forwards which created a lot of opportunities and passes for them. The other full back, Spinnazzola also was cautious and was not positioned too further forward demonstrating his discipline with regards to his defensive duties.

We can also see that most of Italy came from the left. In fact, 50% of their attacks came from the left compared to 23% from the center and 27% from the right.

From these observations we can conclude that Italy are a tactically disciplined and technically gifted team.

Italy Predicted line up for Italy vs Spain

Spinnazzola was a key player for Italy considering he was essential in assisting the attacks as a left full back. 

He was injured during the game and medical examinations after the game revealed that he ruptured his Achilles tendon. This is a serious injury and ends Spinnazzola’s journey in Euro 2020. 

We at slotfreespin hope Spinnazzola recovers from this unfortunate injury.

We don’t expect any changes to the line up but we are not sure about the right forward spot because both Chiesa and Berrardi are equally talented so don’t be surprised if one starts over the other.

Spain Form

Before starting their Euro 2020 campaign Spain was experiencing a great run of form. Spain qualified for this season’s nations league finals. They scored 13 goals and conceded just 3 goals on their triumphant march to the finals.

During the nations league, only Belgium scored more goals than Spain and only Italy conceded fewer goals than Spain.

Spain has also lost only 1 of the 13 games they played prior to the Euro 2020. However, during this time they also struggled to decisively win their games because they won 6 of those games and drew 6 of them.

These problems were also evident during Spain’s group stage games. Spain’s first two matches ended up in a draw. Goals were also hard to come by with one of the games ending 0-0. But Spain turned it around with their amazing performance against Slovakia with the game ending 5-0!

The knockout game against Croatia seemed to be going well for Spain.After conceding a goal in the 20th minute Spain equalized in the 38th minute . They would go on to put on a strong performance in the second half and were leading thanks to a goal in the 57th and then another one from Ferran Torres in the 77th minute.

After leading 3-1 at this point, qualification to the quarterfinals seemed guaranteed but Spain conceded two goals in quick succession. In the last 10 minutes of the game.

The game would go on to extra time and Spain would score two goals to win the game 5-3.

This game showcased an important weakness in the Spanish side, the propensity to concede goals from counter-attacks. 

Spain’s coach recognized this problem and instructed his side to play more cautiously in the quarter final game against Switzerland which ended in yet another draw. The game was eventually decided through a penalty shootout.

Spain tactics

If there is one word to describe Spain’s tactics that word would be “fluid”. Spain is packed with talent across the field and it is difficult for teams to predict the way this team will pay. We will try our best to summarize Spain’s tactics during the European Championship.

Spain usually sets up in a 4-3-3 formationEither both or of the forwards like to stay wideEither both the full backs will join the attack from wide or one of them falls back to form a back 3.Spain like to play to play a possession based style of football with more emphasis on directnessThe forward is more of a “false 9”.The players are very adaptable in regards to with they have to do on the pitch

The Spaniards like to press but with bigger teams, they often leave out space that the opposition tends to exploit well which we saw in their games against Croatia and Switzerland.
Keep these facts in mind as we head towards the predictions for the Italy vs Spain game in the semi final of Euro 2020…

Bookmakers are offering the following odds for the Italy vs Spain game in Euro 2020:

Italy vs Spain Euro 2020 Predictions

We can clearly see from the bookmaker odds that Italy are the favorites to win this semi final game between Italy vs Spain. If you checked out the review we did on Italy’s current form and performance and compare that to Spain’s we can clearly see why that is.

We believe that Spain will yet again try to be aggressive while pressing Italy because they must have noticed that if they remain compact without pressing Italy can shoot from long and score just like Italy did with Insigne’s goal against Belgium.

But as we pointed out earlier, Spain are prone to counter attacks when they go on the offensive and press aggressively. Italy on the other hand are more than capable of scoring on counter-attacks.

If Spain do decide to sit back then Italy will surely break them down because they broke down the strongest defensive teams in the world in their game against Belgium. We also talked about how they broke the Belgian defence.

Because of Spinnazzola’s injury we expect Spain to attack from the right in order to make the most of his absence.

But in spite of this fact, we believe that Italy will win 2-1.

Italy vs Spain Betting Tips

From these odds we can clearly see that Italy are favorites to win this quarterfinal game.

If you read our articles on football betting systems and football betting tips, you would realize Italy vs Spain is the perfect match to place a bet on in Euro 2020.

The reason for that is simple, the odds for both teams are above 2.0 and it will be a closely contested match.

This means that you can more than double your money by betting on Italy and triple your money if you bet on Spain or a draw.

That being said, we have a betting tip for you that could help you win some money no matter who wins…

Place one bet on Italy to win and one bet(of equal amount) on Spain  to win. In this case you only lose your money if there is a draw but that is unlikely to happen in such a crucial game.

So essentially what you do is you split your budget for the game. Let’s say you have a budget of €200 for this game. You place one bet of €100 on Italy and another €100 on Spain.

If Spain wins your Profit percentage would be 55% because your Profit would be €310-€200=€110 and 110 is 55% of your investment of 200.

If Italy wins you would still end up with a 23.5% profit (€255-€200=€47 is 23.5% of 200).

Sure, this system means that your profit percentage would be lower if you just bet on one team (210 % profit if you just bet on Spain and 147% if you just bet on Italy) but this system reduces the chances that you will lose your money.

Keep in mind that this is not a fool proof system. If the match ends in a draw you will lose but as we pointed out earlier, the likelihood of a draw is very low.

England vs Denmark Euro 2021 Predictions and Betting Tips

England vs Denmark Euro 2021 Predictions and Betting Tips 

We have finally reached the semi-finals of Euro 2020 after nearly a month of fascinating Football this summer.

England vs Denmark will be the first semi final match in Euro 2020. The England vs Denmark match will take place on July 6 at 2100 hrs Central Eastern European Summer Time at the Wembley Stadium in London.

England Form

TeamGoals ScoredGoals ConcededShots per gameItaly11220.2Spain12519.8Denmark11517.2England807.4

From the numbers it might look like of all the teams that qualified England are probably the
weakest team. But that would be an incorrect assumption. We will explain this by breaking down

England’s form can be broken down in three categories:

England’s form before Euro 2020England’s form during the group stage in Euro 2020England’s form during the knockout stage in Euro 2020

England’s form before Euro 2020

Before their opening game against Croatia in the group stage in Euro 2020, England were undefeated in the 5 games they played and just conceded once during those games.

Goals were hard to come by for England with England scoring only an average of only 1.5 goals per game.

England’s form During the Group Stage in Euro 2020

England won group D, a group that consisted of World Cup finalists, Croatia. England won 2 games and drew 1. They scored only 2 goals during the group stage. This means that England now are the side to top their group with the fewest goals scored during the European Championships.

At 7.3 shots per game England also had the third fewest shots as well during the group stage in Euro 2021.

However, these low numbers in attack were in direct contrast to England’s performance in defence. England ranked 6th in terms of the fewest shots allowed to their opponents at 8.7 shots per game.

England also did not concede a single goal during the group stage, a distinction they shared with fellow semi-finalists, Italy.

This is the first time England has qualified for the knockout stage in a major tournament without conceding a single goal since the 1986 World Cup. 

England’s form during the knockout stage in Euro 2020

England faced Germany in the round of 16. A lot of doubts were being raised by fans and football pundits alike in regards to whether or not England will play the same “boring” style of football.

England surprised everyone by  putting in a solid performance against Germany and scoring 2 goals. They replicated and even improved upon their performance against Germany in their quarter finals game against Ukraine where England scored 4 goals.

Of the 48 that have been played so far in Euro, there were only 5 games where a team scored 4 or more goals. England vs Ukraine was one of them suggesting that England is more than capable of scoring plenty of goals and winning in style.

England are now unbeaten in 11 games and they have not conceded a single goal in the last 7 games which is a pretty impressive feat. We can reasonably conclude that going into the England vs Denmark game in the semi finals,England are in good form.

England Tactics

England has used 4-2-3-1 consistently in recent times. That’s exactly how they lined up during the group stage. However, They switched to 3-4-3 during the quarterfinal game against Germany and then switched back to a 4-2-3-1 again.

It’s hard to predict which formation they would use in the England vs Denmark game. We are going to guess England will line up in a 4-2-3-1 and discuss the tactics they will use against Denmark.

But don’t worry there aren’t significant differences between the two formations.

In defence, the 3 attacking midfielders will back into midfield and England’s formation will look like a 4-5-1. Harry kane will stand shoulder to shoulder against the opposition defenders looking for deflections, hold the ball and create through balls for his team mates for a counter attack.

When it comes to attack, England prefer to build up patiently from the back. England prefer to attack from the left. Luke Shaw bombs forward and is a threat from out wide.Sterling tucks into the box, Mount moves a bit to the right and into the box while the right winger also moves into the box but remains a bit wide.

This leaves room for the more “defensive” fullback to move forward if England want to switch the play to the other side of the field. Rice and Kalvin Phillips stay a bit further back and provide defensive solidity against counter attacks.

England Predicted Line up For England vs Denmark

Jadon Sancho put in a decent performance against Ukraine but we expect Foden to take his place since he seems to be the preferred option in that position.

4-2-3-1

Denmark Form

Denmark’s form can be broken down in three categories:

Pre Euro 2020First 2 games during the group stageThe final group stage game and the knockout stage in Euro 2020

Pre Euro 2020 form

Denmark are the 10th best team in the world and the 7th best team in Europe according to FIFA. They are the 5th best ranked team of the 8 teams that have qualified for the quarterfinals in Euro 2020.

Before starting their Euro 2020 campaign Denmark were in excellent form. They were unbeaten in the 5 games they played in 2021 before their opening game in Euro 2021 against Finland and finished second in their group in the 2020-21 season of the Nations League. 

The first 2 group stage games 

Denmark lost it’s opening game in the European championship against Finland, a game that continued after a life threatening incident in which one of their best players, Christian Eriksen collapsed on the field due to a cardiac arrest.

Thanks to the actions of his teammates and medical staff, Eriksen survived and is doing well. He urged his team mates to continue the game which Denmark lost 1-0 in spite of making 23 shots.

Denmark’s next game was against the best ranked team in the world, Belgium. Denmark would lose this game 2-1 but they yet again performed quite well registering 21 shots compared to Belgium’s 6.

The final group stage game and the knockout stage in Euro 2020

Denmark faced Russia in their final group stage game. Denmark scored 4 goals and won the game 4-1. This result allowed them to qualify for the knockout stage as runners up of group B.

Check out our predictions for the Euro 2020 Final!

Going into the knockout stages, Denmark registered the second highest number of shots at and an average of 19.7 shots per game on average. Denmark also won the 4 highest number of aerial duels per game and conceded the third fewest number of shots from their opponents at 4.3 shots per game

Denmark would go on to replicate this form and beat Wales 4-0 in the round of 16 and the Czech Republic in the quarter finals to reach their first semi finals in a major tournament since Euro 1992, which was their maiden European championship.

Denmark is in an impressive form as you can see from the numbers above. They are tied with Italy on the second spot for the teams with the most number of goals, they are third in the tournament so far in terms of average number of shots per game and they also have pretty decent defensive record.

Denmark Tactics

Denmark has been lining up in a 3-4-3 for their last 3 games. Denmark tends to apply this formation in a very interesting way. The 2 central midfielders tend to stay compact and avoid the urge to burst forward and to join the attack. 

If one of the midfielders finds space in the option box that could be a good goal scoring opportunity, one of the midfielders will run into that space. When this midfielder vacates that space One of the two wide center backs will occupy that position to prevent counter attacks.

But In the game against Wales Andreas Christensen, who is the center back, could be seen doing exactly that when he would progress up the midfield.

Denmark’s center backs are excellent on the ball and unlike most teams, it can be argued that the center backs are the primary source for progressing the ball forward instead of the midfield.

If the opposition forwards press the center backs, then the midfield takes over this role.

This is an excellent advantage for Denmark because it allows them to progress the ball from multiple areas without any problem.

As you can see from the image below, Denmark can have 5 players in attack and 4 players in midfield when they are attacking. This daring tactic allows them to have a numerical advantage in midfield.

Denmark Predicted Line up For England vs Denmark

3-4-3

England vs Denmark Predictions

This is a tough game to predict because on paper both the teams can win against each other. But England have better quality of players on the bench and in their squad overall. This will certainly give them an edge against Denmark.

As you will see, the bookmakers heavily favor England to win this semi final match. We tend to agree with the bookmakers on this game.

A draw is also highly likely when we consider the fact that that when these two sides previously met in the Nations League in September 2020, the game ended in a 0-0 draw.

But the stakes are higher this time around since it is a semi-final of a major competition. Both sides will go in for the goal that kills the game.

We believe that due to England’s increasing goal scoring abilities during the knockout stage in Euro 2020 combined with their amazing records in maintaining clean sheets this game will end up 2-0 in England’s favor.

Euro 2020 Final: Italy vs England Predictions,Odds & Betting Tips 

After nearly a month of some action packed football we have finally reached the final of Euro 2020! Euro 2020 was full of twists and turns and goals and of course, some amazing performances both at an individual and team level.

In this article we will be giving you our predictions for the Euro 2020 final game between Italy and England and try to answer the question “who will win Euro 2020?”. We will also be sharing some betting tips for the Italy vs England game that could help you get a bang for your buck.

But before we get there let’s take a look at the numbers and how Italy and England reached the final…

Bookmaker odds for Euro 2020 Winners Before the tournament

We have mentioned the odds and probability of the top 8 teams that bookmakers expected to win just before Euro 2021 kicked off. These odds were calculated on June 7 2021, just 4 days before Euro 2020 kicked off.

TeamOddsProbability of winning Euro 2020FIFA rankRank in EuropeFrance5.6517.10%22England6.216.10%43Belgium7.513.30%11Germany911.10%128Portugal9.3110.74%54Italy9.510.50%76Spain9.7510.30%65Netherlands13.87.26%1611

As we can see from the data above, France were clear favorites to lift the European Championship in 2021 and were closely followed by England .

Italy on the other hand were not even in the top 5 teams in terms of probability of winning Euro 2020.

Biggest Upsets During Euro 2020

Just like many major tournaments,. Euro 2020 saw some major upsets.How did Italy beat the odds to reach the final of Euro 2020? Why did France not reach the final? We will answer all those questions below:

The first major upset could have occurred on June 23 when Germany faced Hungary. Hungary was leading 2-1 in the 68th minute. This would have resulted in Germany not qualifying for the knockout stage in a major tournament since the 1984 World Cup. But a goal from Goretzka saved Germany from this fate and they qualified for the knockout stage where they faced England.
The first major upset in Euro 2020 happened on june 27 in the round of 16 when Switzerland who had 1.45% probability to win Euro 2020 defeated the tournament favorites France.
The second major upset happened the next day when the Netherlands were defeated by Czech Republic. The Czech Republic had a 0.76% chance of winning Euro 2020 compared to the Netherlands who had a 7.26% chance and performed exceptionally well during the group stage.

Who will be the Top Scorer in Euro 2020 Odds and Predictions

PlayerGoalsOddsProbabilityCristiano Ronaldo52.4740%Patrik Schick52.4740%Harry Kane44.223.80%Raheem Sterling3214.80%Ciro Immobile21001%

From the odds table for the top scorer in Euro 2020 we can see that Ronaldo and Patrick Schick seem to be the favorites to win the golden boot in Euro 2020.

Harry Kane comes in next after scoring 4 goals in his last 4 games. He has a 23.8% probability of being the top scorer and we take into consideration the fact that he is also adept at making assists, he has good odds at being the top scorer in Euro 2020.

It could be hard for Raheem Sterling to be but it’s not impossible. He hasn’t scored a goal in the last 2 games but if he manages to score 1 he could end up being the top scorer in Euro 2021. With odds of 21, this could help you potentially win $210 from a $10 bet.

Ciro immobile has a very slim chance of being the top scorer in Euro 2020 with bookmakers giving him a 1% probability. No player has scored a hatrick in the history of the European Championship so it seems unlikely that he might score a hatrick and Harry Kane doesn’t score as well.

But this might be a good bet for a small amount of say $5, which you expect to lose and are placing a bet for fun considering the 100x payout.

Now onto our predictions for the Euro 2020 Final between Italy and England.

Italy vs England Euro 2020 Final Predictions

The Italy vs England game in the finals of Euro 2020 will be a very hard game to predict since both of these teams are evenly matched.

In order to make our predictions we will be relying on the odds set by bookmakers, the form of each team in the tournament and statistics. We won’t be relying on the head to head past results between Italy and England because those games have been played over years.

So let’s get started with comparing the form of Italy and England

England and Italy Comparison of Performance during Euro 2020

England is a team that has been progressively getting better during the course of Euro 2021 while Italy has remained consistent in its performance.

During the group stage, England qualified with 2 wins and a draw and scored just 2 goals but conceded 0 goals. Italy on the other hand scored 7 goals, and conceded 0 goals.

TeamGoals scoredGoals concededShots per gamePossessionItaly702059%England207.354%

Concerns were being raised by England’s “cautious” playing style and some pundits expected England to lose against Germany in the knockout stage. However, England surprised the pundits and won 2-0 against Germany while playing some good entertaining football.

This was a historic win for England and the first time they defeated Germany in the knockout stage of a major tournament in 55 years.

Italy beat Austria in extra time, a team that was renowned for its ability to defend.

In the quarterfinals England faced a relatively easy opponent in Ukraine and yet again played some fantastic football scoring 4 goals and won the game 4-0.

Italy faced a formidable opponent in Belgium who are ranked as the number one team by FIFA. Italy were leading 2-0 in the second half before conceding a penalty which Lukaky converted.

Italy held on as Belgium attacked ruthlessly in the second half while also creating some good scoring opportunities on the counter against the best team in the world.

In the semi finals England dominated Denmark and registered the most shots in any game they played so far with 59% possession and 20 shots while Denmark only managed only 6.

Italy faced another difficult opponent in Spain. Spain were also favorites to win Euro 2020 at the start of the tournament. Italy struck first and then defended well but Spain ultimately equalized with 10 minutes to go and the game went into extra time and was decided on penalties.

We can see that England faced one of the favorites (Germany) on their triumphant march to the final of Euro 2021. Italy on the other hand had to beat 2 other favorites, Belgium and Spain in order to earn their place in the final.

Overall Form of Italy and England

England are unbeaten in 12 games while Italy is unbeaten in 33 games. Both teams have a good defensive record with England’s 7 game streak of clean sheets broken by Denmark while Italy’s clean sheet record was broken in the round of 16.

Italy vs England stats

TeamGoals scoredGoals concededShots per gamePossessionItaly1231852%England1019.553%

After the knockout stage, England has picked up a lot of goals and their shots per game have increased. Both teams look evenly matched in terms of the team stats

Now we will compare the stats of key players starting with the midfield

Italy beat England in terms of creating through balls with a combined average of 1.8 through balls between Jorginho(11th highest through ball rate in Euro 2020),Insigne,Immobile and Barrella.

Only Luke shaw (18th) features in terms of creating long balls in the top 20 players who created through balls

Italy are also superior in terms of key passes stats

Barrella has created the third highest key passes per game, followed by Insigne who is seventh and Spinnazzola who is 15th

England only has Mason Mount on that list of top 20 players in Euro 2020 with the highest key passes per game and he is ranked 16th

The Italians also dominate in stats for shots per game with 3 players featuring in the top 20 while England have no players on that list

If you look at the stats for interceptions and tackles per game you will notice Italy yet again outperforms England.

Italy vs England Euro 2020 Final Odds

The odds are constantly changing for this game. As of july 8 2021,bookmakers are offering the following odds for the Italy vs England game in the Euro 2020 final:

England 2.65Draw 3.00Italy 2.95

From these odds we can clearly see that bookmakers believe that the game odds are very close between the two games which means that Bookmakers believe the game could go either way.

However, based on the lower odds and payout for England, we can see that bookmakers favor England to win.

Who will win in the final of Euro 2020 between Italy and England

We at slotfreespin disagree with the bookmakers odds and favor Italy to win Euro 2020. We disagree with the bookmakers because there is a chance that bookmakers are offering lower payouts for England because English fans around the world might be more exciting and backing their team compared to Italians.

Keep in mind that the gambling profits are larger in the UK compared to Italy. The UK market is worth $3.8 billion while the Italian market is worth $1.7 billion. 

We believe Italy will win by very fine margins but England will manage to score. We predict Italy will win 2-1 in the Euro 2020 final.

Italy will in our opinion because statistically they have technically better players with higher interceptions,tackles per game, key passes per game and through balls per game compared to England’s players.

In our opinion, b-bets is one of the best bookmakers for betting on the Euro 2020 final game between Italy and England. b-Bets currently has a cashback offer that gives you €1 back for every €5 you make on a bet on the Euro 2020.

Italy vs England Euro 2020 Final Betting Tips

If you read our articles on football betting systems and football betting tips, you would realize Italy vs England is the perfect match to place a bet on in Euro 2020.

The reason for that is simple, the odds for both teams are above 2.0 and it will be a closely contested match.

We have a betting tip for you that could help you win some money no matter who wins…

Place one bet on Italy to win and one bet(of equal amount) on Spain  to win. In this case you only lose your money if there is a draw but that is unlikely to happen in such a crucial game.

So essentially what you do is you split your budget for the game. Let’s say you have a budget of €200 for this game. You place one bet of €100 on Italy and another €100 on Spain.

If Italy wins your Profit percentage would be 47.5% because your Profit would be €310-€200=€95 and 110 is 47.5% of your investment of 200.

If England wins you would still end up with a 32.5% profit (€265-€200=€65 is 32.5% of 200).

Sure, this system means that your profit percentage would be lower if you just bet on one team (195 % profit if you just bet on Italy and 165% if you just bet on England) but this system reduces the chances that you will lose your money.

Keep in mind that this is not a fool proof system. If the match ends in a draw.

Common questions about bitcoin casinos and crypto casinos

Before we give you our complete list of bitcoin casinos and crypto casinos, we will answer some questions that players who are looking for casinos that accept crypto have…

What are bitcoin casinos and crypto currency casinos?

Bitcoin casinos and crypto currency casinos are casinos where you can play your favorite casino games or even bet on your favorite sports with bitcoin and other crypto currencies. There are a limited number of different crypto currencies that each casino accepts but bitcoin seems to be the most popular crypto currency that is accepted in these casinos.

Are bitcoin casinos and crypto currency casinos legal and legit?

This question is a bit tricky to answer because there are plenty of casinos that are unlicensed and therefore unregulated. Depending on the country they are operating from, these casinos may be illegal.

We don’t recommend you to play on unlicensed casinos whether or not they accept crypto currencies. We recommend you not to play in unlicensed casinos because if you have a problem with withdrawals, you would have no way to resolve the issue and the casino will walk away with your money.

This is why we always recommend players to play in licensed casinos. Licensed casinos have to follow the regulations of their gaming authority to ensure that you, the player, is not screwed over by the casino.

Some countries prohibit their residents from gambling online with bitcoin. It is very important for you to check your country’s legislation to make sure that you are not breaking the law by gambling in online bitcoin and crypto casinos because even if the casino itself is legal, you are at risk of breaking the law in your country.

What are the best Cryptocurrencies for online crypto casinos?

The most popular and accepted cryptocurrency in most bitcoin and cryptocurrency casinos is bitcoin. Apart from bitcoin many casinos accept other crypto currencies like Ethereum, Litecoin etc.

Casinobtc is yet another bitcoin casino based in Cyprus that is owned and operated by Cryptos Nations. We could not find out any information about this company online. This casino also holds no recognizable license from a government. On their website it states that they hold a “masters license by Cryptos Nations”. 

We could not find out any information about such a license on google and are highly suspicious of the legitimacy of this website since they claim they hold a “masters license” by themselves.

We urge our readers to make their own decision but personally we are wary of playing in a casino that is not licensed by a government. 

Casinobtc  Bonus

Casinobtc is currently offering a 400% up to €1000 welcome bonus.

Rocketpot accept many crypto currencies apart from Bitcoin like bitcoin cash,doge coin,ethereum,litecoin and Neo. You can also buy cryptocurrency that you can use on Rocketpot through a portal that they have built in their website.

Unfortunately, the minimum deposit amount from claiming the welcome bonus at Rocketpot is 1 Btc, which is very high in our opinion.

Cryptocurrency Casino # 8 22Bet Casino

22Bet Casino is owned and operated by TechSolutions (CY) Group Limited, a company located in Cyprus.

The website seems to be primarily designed for fans of sports betting but it has an impressive collection of casino games. 22Bet is licensed by, you guessed it, the Curacao Gaming Board. 22Bet is a hybrid casino that accepts both fiat currencies like USD,Euro and Japanese Yen as well many crypto currencies.

Of all the crypto currency casinos we have listed, 22Bet accepts the most number of crypto currencies so far. 

We counted close to 30 crypto currencies that they currently accept which is pretty impressive.

Unfortunately, many countries are restricted from playing in 22Bet and the casino. 22Bet’s welcome bonus is also pretty low in our opinion compared to other bitcoin casinos on the list.

At the time of writing, 22Bet has a 100% upto €300 welcome bonus.

Cryptocurrency Casino # 9 Anonymous Casino

Anonymous Casino has an impressive welcome bonus of 150% up to 1.5BTC 15 ETH and 150 LTC. It also doesn’t mention any restricted countries. However, we personally wouldn’t recommend this casino as it is not a licensed casino.

Anonymous Casino also doesn’t feature many providers and popular games as well as a sportsbook. 

The website also doesn’t have live support and can only be reached via email.

Cryptocurrency Casino # 10 KingBit Casino

KingBit Casino is the last casino on our list of the top 10 bitcoin and cryptocurrency casinos. There isn’t much information about who operates the casino on the website and the casino doesn’t have many games.

KingBit does have a very generous bonus offer of 110% up to 1 BTC, no country restrictions,24/7 live customer support. The casino also accepts a plethora of cryptocurrencies apart from bitcoin like ripple,dash,litecoin and ethereum. 

We spoke to the customer support and screenshotted their response below. The casino is not licensed. In their terms and conditions it reads that it is the player’s responsibility to know about the laws in their country in order to avoid any problems.

We recommend you to read about the laws and regulations in your country regarding gambling with bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. Ultimately it’s your choice to play in an unlicensed casino but we prefer to play in a licensed casino.
