The UEFA European Championship 2020 Quarter-Finals roll on, to be played from Friday, July 2 to Sunday, July 3. These clashes pit eight soccer teams with very different histories against each other. In one of them, Belgium will come against Italy at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany; while in another one, England travel to Rome to face surprise entry Ukraine at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.
Roberto Martinez’s side finished the Group Stage on top of Group B with nine points in three games. Italy, meanwhile, finished the Group Stage on top of Group A with nine points in three games. On the other hand, there is England who topped Group D, meeting with Group C's third-placed team Ukraine.
This matchday provides an opportunity for the bettor to play around with parlays, picks in the over/under, or goalscorers. Here are some betting predictions to consider when placing a bet on these Euro 2020 Quarter-Finals fixtures.
Belgium vs Italy betting picks (Friday, July 2)
Unfortunately for both countries, one of them is going to have to suffer their first loss and miss out on a place in the Semi-Finals in the final phases of the tournament. Belgium have celebrated four consecutive triumphs so far, against Russia 3-0, Denmark 2-1, and Finland 2-0 in their three Euro 2020 Group Stage games. Then, they knocked out the defending Euro champions Portugal with a simple 1-0 win. Meanwhile, Italy are also yet to record their first loss, having grabbed triumphs against Turkey and Switzerland, both with a result of 3-0 and one against Wales 1-0 in their three Euro 2020 Group Stage games. In the Round of 16, the Azzurri came out victorious against Austria in extra time.
The Red Devils are +220 underdogs, while the Azzurri are at +135 to win on Friday, and a tie grants a +200 payout. A tough battle is expected, but having everything in mind, betting that the matchup ends in Over 3.5 goals, for example, is paying out +370. If you want to bet on the clash, as it might be much more interesting than an outright bet. At $100, the bettor could earn $370. If you got to pick anyone to put the ball in the back of the net in this game look no further than Romelu Lukaku or Ciro Immobile, as the Belgian star is at +460 to be the first one to score, while the odds of the Lazio ace opening the score of the game are set at +500.
Ukraine vs England betting picks (Sunday, July 3)
Could it really be coming home this time? England failed to impress with their playing style and skills during the Group Stage despite coming out as the best side from Group D. The Three Lions netted only two goals, one in the win over Croatia, and the other one in the victory over the Czech Republic. They also disappointingly drew 0-0 with Scotland. However, when they got put to the test, the Three Lions certainly made sure to deliver. Thanks to the 2-0 triumph over the 2014 World Cup champions Germany, the English players have kept the dream of "bringing it home" alive.
Prior to holding out on hopes, they will have to overcome the tricky Ukraine squad who had only one win in the Group Stage in Group C. The Blue and Yellow managed to celebrate a lone victory over Macedonia 2-1, only to lose to the Netherlands 3-2, and Austria 1-0. They got through to the last 16 as the fourth third-placed team, shocking the motivated Sweden players 2-1 in the dying minutes of the extra time.
Understandably, it is Gareth Southgate's men who are the favorites, at -260, while the Ukrainian team are at a whopping +700 to qualify for the semis. Betting that the game ends in a 2-1 victory for England could be a sure bet, at +750. At $100, the bettor could earn $750. If you got to pick anyone to put the ball in the back of the net in this game look no further than Raheem Sterling. The Manchester City striker has netted three of England's four goals so far, so as a result, the odds of him opening the score of the game are set at +480.
Parlays for these two Euro 2020 Quarter-Finals matchups
A solid parlay bet could be the following: Belgium and England to score Over 3.5 goals combined, Romelu Lukaku to score the first goal of the game; England to beat Ukraine 2-1, and Raheem Sterling to score first in the matchup. At $100, the bettor could win up to $2,060.
