Euros Semi-Final Double
France to qualify
Under 2.5 Goals (NED v ENG)
All my Euros bets are with bet365 so you will need an account to follow them.
Spain have visually been the best team at the tournament but are missing key players (Morata, Carvajal, Le Normand and Pedri) and face the best defence at the tournament. France have conceded just 1 goal and actually have an xG over there goals so far. Spain are favourites so it makes sense to take the value with France.

I have had under 2.5 goals in a lot of my doubles with it being a theme of knockout football at major tournaments. With every England game having less than 3 goals it seems a logical bet.
