Serbia vs England

Serbia-vs-England-Euro2024Serbia have a tough assignment as they take on Euro 2024 favourites in their Group C opener on Sunday evening. Despite being the outsiders in this one, the Serbs do possess some incredible firepower, with the likes of Aleksandr Mitrovic, Dusan Vlahovic and Luka Jovic among their squad. Although they did disappoint in the World Cup two years ago, a decent qualification campaign saw them finish second in Group G, and a good 3-0 win over Sweden in their final warm-up will have their confidence sky-high. Dragan Stojković’s men will fancy their chances of causing an upset.

England’s final warm-up raised a few eyebrows as the Three Lions fell to a surprising 1-0 defeat at the hands of Iceland. That should have given the whole squad a much-needed kick and a reminder that being favourites doesn’t guarantee victory. Gareth Southgate has had some time with his squad, and you can be sure that they’ll be ready for this one. Jude Bellingham is expected to start after a break following his Champions League triumph with Real Madrid. He could be the key to unlocking the Serbian defence, with Harry Kane keen to add to his England tally.

This won’t be as straightforward as the odds suggest. Serbia will be dangerous on the counter attack and will look for key moments to hurt England. If the Three Lions can bring their A-game, this should only go one way, but it will be competitive. We expect a tight game, but England can win this, with both teams finding the net. Harry Kane to score first is one of the more obvious single bets to side with, along with Mitrovic to be carded in the game.
