Ukraine and England face off on Saturday, July 3 at 3 p.m. ET in the Euro 2020 quarterfinals. The match will air on ABC and take place in Rome. England is a -590 favorite to advance at DraftKings Sportsbook, while Ukraine is a +400 underdog.

Ukraine is turning out to be one of the Cinderella stories of this year’s tournament, defying all odds and squeaking into the Round of 16 by finishing third place in Group C. They logged one win in the group stage, a 2-1 victory over North Macedonia, but lost to both the Netherlands and Austria. They then shocked the world in the Round of 16 when Artem Dovbyk scored the game winner in the first minute of stoppage time after 120 minutes of play, sending Sweden home just when they thought they were heading to a penalty shootout.

England finished first in Group D, defeating Croatia and the Czech Republic while logging a scoreless draw against Scotland. They stunned Germany with a 2-0 win in the Round of 16 thanks to late goals from Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane to advance to the semi finals.

Ukraine vs. England

Ukraine: +800 (to advance +400)

England: -240 (to advance -590)
Total goals: 2.5 (Over +100, Under -122)

Regular time ML pick: Tie +340
Team to advance pick: England -590
Best bet: Raheem Sterling to score +195

While they may be the favorites to win the entire competition after France’s early exit, England’s attack isn’t performing quite as well as anyone expected, as they’ve only scored four goals throughout the tournament — three of them put in by Manchester City star Raheem Sterling. They have all the pieces needed to take down virtually any team as long as they’re firing on all cylinders. Names like Marcus Rashford, Jack Grealish, Harry Kane, and Mason Mount highlight their attacking corps, but Kane so far is the only other player to score aside from Sterling. With England heavily favored to end Ukraine’s impressive run with a win, all signs point to Raheem Sterling having a hand in the final score in the Three Lions’ favor.
