Spain v England SuperBoost

England have made it to back-to-back European Championship finals and Betfair are offering up a SuperBoost to mark the occasion.

English football fans all know about Chelsea's Marc Cucurella, who has committed six fouls at Euro 2024 so far, and managing at least one offence in each of his five appearances at the tournament.

England (84) are the most fouled team in Germany, and boast Jude Bellingham (14) and Harry Kane (11) as two of the top four most fouled players in the competition.

He will also be most likely directly up against Arsenal's Bukayo Saka, who has won 10 fouls at the tournament so far, at 1.7 per 90, and, for whom he has previous with.

In both Arsenal v Chelsea meetings in the Premier League last season, Cucurella committed two fouls directly on Bukayo Saka in each game, and was involved in 10 fouls across the two matches (fouls won + fouls conceded).

Lamine Yamal is the favourite to win both the player and young player of Euro 2024 awards on Betfair Sportsbook after his wonder goal helped Spain reach Sunday's final at the expense of France.

Yamal can win it all at Euro 2024

He is 15/82.88 to win Player of the Tournament but 19 punters backed him at 50/151.00 before a ball was kicked in Germany. One those placed a £15 stake and will £765 if the teenager takes the award.

He is 1/51.20 to win Young Player of the Tournament, after being 9/110.00 before the finals began, following his sensational display for Spain in last night's semi-final.

At 16 years and 362 days, his exquisite curling shot from outside the France box made him the youngest man to score in the tournament's history.

On Saturday, he will turn 17 before almost certaintly appearing for Spain in the final the following day.

He had already made history at club level this season by becoming Barcelona's youngest ever first team starter and scorer, as well the youngest ever scorer in La Liga.

Spain favourites to win final against England or Netherlands

Spain became the first team to win all six matches en route to a European Championships final when they came from behind to beat Les Bleus.

La Roja are 4/71.57 favourites in the Betfair Sportsbook Euro 2024 outright winner market and have been by some distance the best team at the tournament.

They were resolute in their win over France and have been the most attacking team in Germany, scoring 13 goals across their six matches.

England play the Netherlands tonight in the second semi-final but the odds for the final indicate that Spain won't mind which opponent they play.

Spain are 6/52.20 favourites to win a final if they're up against England and 10/111.91 if it's the Netherlands.

Neither the Three Lions nor the Oranje will be thinking about that yet though, as another big night of semi-finals Euros action awaits. Get our experts' best bets.
