ENGLAND(2.46) VS GERMANY(3.15)
A famous rivalry has returned as England gets to host Germany at the Wembley Stadium and the Odds are a bit in favour of England

Both teams showed flaws in the group stage, but are the two biggest teams, based on reputation, of the teams in that half of the draw. England is 5-1 to win the tournament while Germany is 6-1.
Raheem Sterling has scored two goals in the competition and will be looking to score another one while for Germany Kai Havertz also has two goals and Toni Kroos is also committing a high number (1.8) of fouls per match with Ilkay Gundogan having a 93% pass accuracy in the tournament

SWEDEN(2.48) VS UKRAINE(3.31)
Sweden won their group with seven points out of a possible nine and have been labeled a disciplined team due to the composure of their defense while Ukraine finished as one of the best third-place teams in their group.
This is Ukraine’s first match in the knockout stage of a European Championship as an independent nation.
Sweden has been impressive which is why the odds are slightly in their favour and because both teams have not scored a lot of goals so far, it looks like a low-scoring game.
Emil Fosberg has scored three goals for the Swedes averaging 2.7 shots per match while in defense Oleksandr Karavayev has been amazing for Ukraine with an impressive 2.1 interception per game and 1.8 tackles per match
