They had to go all the way through extra time and penalty kicks, but in the end, it was the Italian side who managed to say arrivederci in the first semi-final of the Euro 2020.
Enrico Chiesa scored a very good goal from side of the box to put Italy ahead in the 60th minute of the 2nd half, a score that lasted for 20 minutes until Alvaro Morata was involved in a great linkup play before tying it at 1-1.
Both extra time periods of 15 minutes each yielded no goals from either side, and then it was on to the penalty kicks where Morata once again took on an unfortunate role during the competition. His miss opened up the chance for Italy to take the win on the final kick and I midfielder Jorginho scored a safe one, with the Spanish goalkeeper on the complete opposite side of the goal.
The outcome put our Euro 2020 betting record at 11 wins and 6 lost bets for a profit of +450, we have a good pick for tonight as well, available at all of the best US sportsbooks in your state.

England v Denmark – Betting analysis
England is playing at home on the famous Wembley Stadium in London and should see massive support throughout the game. This will favor the English side just a bit, but Denmark has proven many times now how they respond against adversity.
Both teams are rated within the top 10 in the world per FIFA rankings, with England currently sitting at 4th and Denmark at 10th – so a fairly even matchup stat wise in terms of performance.
Both teams know how to score so far during the Euros while also being good defensively. England did start off the tournament rather slow on the offensive side, but has since picked it up greatly in the playoff rounds, especially behind the performance of striker Harry Kane.
England is also yet to have a goal scored against them, an impressive streak that the Danes will need to break tonight. And they will be good candidates to do so, being the only team to ever score 4 goals in consecutive games in a Euro championship.

Euro 2020 Betting
Can I bet on the result of a game if it's already started?Yes sure, you just have to use the live betting section of the sportsbook you are using. All of our recommended sportsbooks feature live betting sections.
If a favorite in a game has higher odds thanks to a handicap -1. What does handicap mean?Betting on a team with a handicap makes up for more favorable odds. Handicap -1 means that the team you bet on starts the game with a goal behind, meaning they need to win the match with two goals or more for your bet to be a winner. Should they win by exactly one, your bet is a push and the stake returned to your account.
I want to put my money on a team with really high odds. Is this a good idea?There is a reason the odds are high: because chances are small that that team will win the match. So, you might win more, but the chances of winning are smaller. If you think the high odds doesn't represent the actual chance of the outcome, then of course you have a good bet on your hands.
I want to combine the outcome with the exact score, is this possible?You can combine such bets at most sportsbooks, just use the Bet Builder function offered by most of our recommended sportsbooks.
