SlipsTips shares a player-based Bet Builder double ahead of England's encounter with Denmark in Euro 2024 on Thursday evening.

Denmark vs England (Thursday, 17:00)

England will be aiming to make it two wins from two in Euro 2024 Group C when they face Denmark at Deutsche Bank Park on Thursday evening.

The Three Lions kicked-off their latest quest for glory with a narrow 1-0 win over Serbia on Sunday, with Jude Bellingham's first half header proving decisive.

Meanwhile, Denmark – who were knocked out of Euro 2020 by England – were held to a 1-1 draw by Slovenia in their opening match of the tournament.

Gareth Southgate’s side are odds-on 4/6 favourites with Betfred to pocket another three points in Frankfurt on Thursday evening.

However, in terms of a Bet Builder for this clash, I’m going plump for a player-based double by backing both Declan Rice and Pierre-Emile Højbjerg each to commit a foul at 10/11 on Betfred.

Declan Rice has been one of England’s mainstays in the engine room in recent years, and his all-action displays tend to lead to him finding himself in the thick of the action.

The Arsenal midfielder was averaging 0.9 fouls per-game during the most recent Premier League season, not to mention he racked up seven yellow cards across all competitions.

Having given away a free-kick in England’s opening match of the tournament, I’m backing Rice to get on the wrong side of the referee once more against the Red and Whites.

Joining Rice in the midfield battleground will be Denmark’s Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, another player who is prone to landing himself in trouble with match officials.

The Danish midfield destroyer has averaged 1.1 fouls per 90 across his career to date, and he will surely have his work cut out here given the plethora of attacking weapons in England’s armoury.

Højbjerg committed a foul in Denmark's Group C curtain-raiser with Slovenia and he looks an obvious candidate to be reprimanded against star-studded England.

Therefore, backing the above-mentioned duo each to commit a foul on Thursday night should give us a good run for our money at 10/11 on Betfred.

Recommended Bet

  • Declan Rice Commit 1+ Foul
  • Pierre-Emile Højbjerg to Commit 1+ Foul
  • Bet Builder – 10/11 (Betfred)
