As the second Euro 2024 semi-final approaches, all eyes are on the high-stakes clash between the Netherlands and England.

This pivotal match, set to take place at Signal-Iduna-Park in Dortmund, promises excitement and drama. Both teams have shown resilience and determination throughout the tournament, making this a must-watch encounter.

Team Form and Journey to the Semi-Finals

Netherlands' Road to the Semi-Finals

The Netherlands have had a mixed journey to the semi-finals. After emerging from Group D in third place, they faced a relatively easier draw in the knockout stages.

They defeated Romania 3-0 in the last 16 and overcame Turkey in a hard-fought quarter-final.

Key players like Cody Gakpo and Memphis Depay have been instrumental, contributing to over 60% of the team's goals.

England's Path to the Semi-Finals

England's path has been anything but smooth. After a shaky group stage, they needed extra time and penalties to edge past Switzerland in the quarter-finals.

Jude Bellingham's heroics and Bukayo Saka's critical equaliser in subsequent games have kept their hopes alive.

However, their performance has lacked consistency, raising questions about their ability to handle high-pressure situations.

Team News and Lineups

Netherlands Team News

Coach Ronald Koeman faces crucial decisions, particularly in attack. Wout Weghorst’s impact against Turkey might earn him a starting spot alongside Depay.

Defensive stalwart Virgil van Dijk will lead the backline, with Xavi Simons providing creativity in midfield.

Probable Starting XI: Verbruggen; Dumfries, De Vrij, Van Dijk, Ake; Schouten, Reijnders; Malen, Simons, Gakpo; Depay

England Team News

Gareth Southgate is expected to stick with a tried-and-tested lineup. Luke Shaw’s return provides options at left-back, though he might start on the bench.

Harry Kane, despite a recent scare, is fit and ready to lead the attack.

Probable Starting XI: Pickford; Walker, Stones, Guehi; Saka, Mainoo, Rice, Trippier; Bellingham, Foden; Kane

Prediction

Head-to-Head and Recent Form

Historically, England has struggled against the Netherlands, with only one win in their last nine encounters.

The Dutch team appears to be peaking at the right time, with their attacking talent beginning to click in the latter stages of the Euros.

Prediction

Given their form and attacking prowess, the Netherlands are slightly favoured to win.

However, England’s ability to comeback late on cannot be underestimated. A close match is expected, possibly requiring extra time.
