Serbia – England betting tip, prediction & odds Euro 16.04.2024

Serbia England betting tip & the best odds for the match in Group C

The long wait for the European Championship is over: Here is my England Serbia betting tip! On Sunday evening, two hot contenders for the round of 16 will face each other in Group C.

For the Three Lions, the mission “It’s coming home” starts again. The islanders want to finally bring the trophy home for the first time after losing the European Championship final three years ago.

They will be supported by frenetic fans who have already won over the Ruhr region. However, this also applies to the Orlovi supporters.

They have qualified for a European Championship for the first time as an independent country. Their motivation to score directly in a difficult group is correspondingly high.

In my Serbia-England prediction, however, I take the view of bookmaker Oddset and expect a close game in which the Three Lions will ultimately prevail

The first games in a major tournament are of course always a special affair. Nobody wants to make the first mistake, losing is virtually forbidden.

If we take a closer look at the Serbia-England predictions, we can see that the betting providers for the 2024 European Championship are expecting the British to win. But it won’t be a walk in the park.

For example, the odds are well over 2.00 if the reigning European runners-up win without conceding a goal

The Serbia – England prediction of the bookmakers

The fact that the bookies are offering such attractive odds for a clean sheet is also due to the role that the Serbs might play. With Dusan Vlahovic, they have no stranger in the center of the attack.

The odds that he will score are set at around 3.80 by the bookmaker Happybet. He scored three times in the course of qualifying for this tournament.

But if that’s too risky for you, you can just as easily bet on a game with goals on both sides. You can get odds of around 2.00 on this at the relevant sites

Serbia – England odds: Where can you get the highest Serbia odds?

For a surprise in this opening match for both nations, however, a lot has to come together from the Orlovi’s point of view, all the cogs have to mesh perfectly.

The odds for a win for the south-east Europeans are around 7.00. However, it cannot be assumed that the Three Lions will remain without a goal.

So if you want to bet on a coup in the Serbia England betting tip, you could also bet on a Serbian victory with goals on both sides.

The bookmaker Bwin has match combination odds of around 12.0 for this scenario.

Analysis: Serbia vs England

Offensively, however, the Serbs should by no means be underestimated. In their qualifying Group G, they are the only team to have scored at least once in all eight games.

If we include the qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup, they have scored in 22 games in a row, with the exception of the play-offs.

With an attacking line around Vlahovic and Aleksandar Mitrovic, who is still not to be underestimated, coach Dragan Stojkovic is sending a hard-hitting squad into the tournament

I admit, I’m clutching at every available straw from a Serbian perspective. Because individually, the English are clearly superior.

They may even have the best squad at this EURO alongside France. In Harry Kane, they have a hot contender for the goalscoring crown at Euro 2024.

He scored eight times during the qualifying campaign and set up a further two goals. What’s more, no other European player has been as successful at major tournaments as the Bayern professional. Since the 2018 World Cup, he has scored 12 times in three competitions

So you can see: the offense is the showpiece on both sides, simply because that’s where the best people play. But what do both teams have to offer defensively?

The Orlovi in particular will rely on physicality with their five-man back line. Milenkovic pulls the strings in the center of defense and Milinkovic-Savic also played excellently in midfield against Sweden.

The Three Lions still have some question marks over the 1-0 defeat to Iceland. In any case, they have only kept a clean sheet once in their last five games

Odds analysis

But tournaments are not governed by the same rules. It’s about dealing with the pressure and successfully representing the nation in a noisy stadium.

And the Three Lions have often cut a fine figure at European Championships in particular – but without ever going all the way.

If we exclude defeats in penalty shoot-outs, the motherland of soccer has only lost one of its last 18 European Championship games (10S, 7U).

These statistics could always serve as a kind of basis for your Serbia England betting tip. At Betway Sportwetten you will find odds of around 2.00 if the British do not lose and over 2.5 goals are scored in the match.

However, due to the explosive nature of the game, it should not be assumed that it will be too one-sided. This is also suggested by the half-time bets, which I consider to be quite serious.

If the score is tied after the break and Southgate’s team wins the second half, the odds are around 4.10.

Serbia vs England odds: Will the Eagles fail to see a goal?

In terms of experience, the Orlovi have nothing to hide. A large part of the squad has already been represented at the last two World Cups.

But for them and the nation as a whole, this is their first ever participation in a European Championship final round. And European Championships are known to be a bit more intense…

However, it is surprising that the bookmakers are promising odds of over 1.70 in some cases if the Serbs score at least one goal against England

History speaks for England

This is the eleventh time the Three Lions have reached the European Championship finals. No team has played as many matches in this competition or won a single title (38).

But once again there is hope that the generation around Harry Kane, Jude Bellingham & Co. will finally end the drought.

For the Three Lions, it would of course be a very special treat if they were to be crowned champions for the first time in the land of their great arch-rivals…

The preparation for this tournament was very good, as is so often the case. Since qualifying for Euro 2012, the Three Lions have always finished first in their group. This time too.

They won six of their eight games and drew twice. This is important in that the English finished six points ahead of European champions Italy

As far as the history between Serbia and England is concerned, the British are clearly ahead. They have not lost in their last six matches.

Southgate’s team will certainly be encouraged by the fact that they have won all four of their most recent encounters.

However, the last time the two teams faced each other was back in 2003. At that time, Serbia was not yet independent, which is why this is de facto the first meeting between these two nations

My Serbia England tip:

Great tournaments make great players. The games themselves are not always a case for the history books.

We can certainly look forward to a hard-fought game with some racy duels. The fans surrounding this game will also play a significant role in creating the right atmosphere.

However, turbulence in the stands should of course not affect the players on the pitch. The English in particular have a lot to lose and will therefore act in a controlled manner, but by no means without a drive towards goal.

My Serbia England betting tip is therefore: The Three Lions win and less than 4.5 goals are scored
