Fingernails up and down the country look set to take a hammering on Tuesday as England take on Germany in a huge Euro 2020 showdown.
England are 6/4 favourites in Grosvenor Sport’s Euro 2020 odds lists to see off the Germans, who are 39/20 to win in 90 minutes. It is 9/4 that the game goes into extra time.
Despite the fact that there were ten goals in Germany’s last two group games, a high-scoring affair looks unlikely given Gareth Southgate’s side haven’t conceded a goal for 450 minutes.
England head into the Wembley bonanza on a nine-game unbeaten run across all competitions but they have never won a European Championship knock-out fixture in 90 minutes and their inability to both create and finish chances has undoubtedly been an issue so far in this tournament.
So, unless Gareth Southgate adopts a more attacking approach, which seems most unlikely, goals punters could once again be left disappointed.
Harry Kane’s lack of goalscoring form is an obvious issue for England. Kane was favourite for the Golden Boot going into the tournament but he’s barely been at the races in England’s three games so far.
Thankfully, Raheem Sterling has stepped up to the plate, bagging match-winning goals against Croatia and Czech Republic.
Sterling’s pace and movement is once again going to be a big problem for a Germany back line that has looked all at sea at times in this tournament. With that in mind, the Manchester City star looks decent value at 3/1 with Grosvenor Sport to strike at any time. He’s a 7/1 to open the scoring.
Germany scraped into the knock-out stages of the tournament thanks to a late equaliser against Hungary but they have looked vulnerable to pace in wide defensive areas, which could open things up for Sterling.
However, in what looks sure to be a cagey encounter, the safest bet could be to back the draw.
Draw – 9/4
