Today’s football betting tips dip into more midweek international action, which of course is going to be the theme for a while.

There is another international friendly fixture to size up for today’s football betting.

We will also be making picks for the semifinals of the Euro Under 21 Championships.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Ukraine v Northern Ireland

Football betting tips today start with an international friendly as it looks as if it could be the most competitive of all the games on the night.

The last time that Ukraine played Northern Ireland they suffered a 2-0 loss.

That was at Euro 2016 and that leaves Northern Ireland undefeated three in against Ukraine (W1 D2).

Of the five previous meetings between the two nations, only one of the fixtures has gone above the 2.5 goal line.

Ukraine are winless in their last six games, drawing each to their last four played by a 1-1 scoreline.

During that six-match sequence, they have scored against both Germany and France in fixtures.

Northern Ireland claimed a victory over Malta in an international friendly in their most recent fixtures.

That’s a W1 D2 L3 record from them in their last six. This just has the look of being a very quiet night for goalmouth action.

Draw at 13/5

Football Betting Picks Today: Spain U21 v Portugal U21

Football betting for today has arrived in the semi-finals of the Euro U21 Championships.

Both Spain and Portugal needed extra time to come through their quarter-final ties.

Spain dug out a 2-1 victory in the end against Croatia to book their spot in the final four, Javier Puado netting both of their goals.

In the group stage, Spain posted a W2 D1 record, not conceding in any of those three fixtures.

This is not an easy fixture though for them as they face Portugal who have been going well in front of goal.

Portugal took a 5-3 victory over Italy in their quarter-final tie. That went to extra time as Italy clawed themselves level at 3-3 in the 89th minute of regulation time.

That is at least three goals that Portugal have scored in their last three fixtures in the tournament.

It’s 10 goals in total they have scored in that run of games and with three clean sheets in four at the tournament, they could give Spain a run for their money.

Football Betting Tips for Today: [heading]

Today’s football betting tips stay in the semi-finals of the European U21 Championships.

The Netherlands earned a 2-1 victory over France in the quarter-finals.

They got the job done there in 90 minutes and that could be a big advantage for them moving forward.

The Dutch got the winner three minutes into stoppage time and with their semi-final opponents Germany having gone through extra time and penalties in their quarter-final match, can the Dutch take advantage?

Netherlands earned a W1 D2 record in the group stage, the same return as Germany. But the Dutch took top spot on goal difference.

Bet at Bet365

Germany and Netherlands settled for a 1-1 draw in their group stage meeting in this tournament.

That leaves the head to head even at one win each and a draw from the last three U21 meetings.

Germany had some high stress in the quarter-finals, needing a penalty shoot-out to get past Germany after a 2-2 draw.

The Danes always looked if they could get at Germany. We think the Dutch can as well.

Netherlands to win at 17/10
