England are just one game away from another European Championship final but standing in their way in Dortmund are the Netherlands.

Gareth Southgate's side have reached the last four despite some disappointing performances in Germany, while the Dutch have also had to dig deep to make it this far.

Netherlands vs England (Wednesday, 8pm)

Bet 1: Jude Bellingham to score in the match - Yes

Jude Bellingham got England's tournament off to a flyer with an early goal against Serbia and the Real Madrid midfielder then saved the Three Lions with a spectacular late overhead kick to equalise against Slovakia in the last 16.

Bellingham, like a lot of his international colleagues, has been way short of his best overall in Germany but he has showcased his individual brilliance and eye for a goal in crucial moments.

The 21-year-old spent three years in the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund and returns to the city for the semi-final, where he will be desperate to make his mark again to help inspire England against the Dutch.

Bet 2: Memphis Depay to have over 1.5 shots in the match

Memphis Depay has been one of the Netherlands' most dangerous players in Germany with the forward racking up 18 goal attempts in the tournament so far.

The 30-year-old has only managed to score one goal, in the 3-2 group defeat to Austria, but he has regularly been trying his luck in and around the penalty area.

Depay had four shots against Poland in his country's first game, then two against France and three against Austria. In the knockout rounds, the former Manchester United, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid man has also been heavily involved in the final third, with four shots against both Romania and Turkey.

England will be well aware of the threat Depay poses but it would still not be a surprise to see him managing at least two shots on Wednesday.

Bet 3: Over 5.5 corners in the match for both teams combined

The final leg of the Bet Builder is for there to be at least six corners in the match as both sides look to carve out chances from attacking set-pieces.

England's corner count was rising steadily earlier in the tournament with the Three Lions going from winning just one against Serbia, to four versus Denmark and then six against Slovenia in the group stage.

They then were awarded nine corners in the last-16 tie against Slovakia before posting a disappointing total of just four on Saturday in the quarter-final against Switzerland.

The Netherlands won 13 corners in their 3-0 last-16 win over Romania but saw that figure drop to just three on Saturday when they came from behind to beat Turkey 2-1.

In what might well be a cagey semi-final, there may not be an abundance of corners in Dortmund but both England and the Dutch are more than capable of winning at least three each on the night.
