The last four of the tournament are now set, with the Three Lions and Les Bleus favourites to qualify from their respective ties and reach the final

After over three weeks of action, the semi-finals of the World Cup are set.

France and Belgium kick off proceedings on Tuesday night in St Petersburg, with dabblebet offering Les Bleus as slight 6/4 (2.50) favourites, whilst the Red Devils can be backed at 2/1 (3.0).

The draw is offered at 9/4 (3.25) and considering the supremely talented squads boasted by both teams, it is little surprise that there is not much to separate the 1X2 market.

Goals have been a feature of both teams in the knockout stages of this World Cup, with France scoring six and conceding three across their two games whilst Belgium have netted five and shipped three.

The bookmakers, however, have failed to split the ‘Both teams to score’ market, with both Yes and No priced at 17/20 (1.85), whilst over 2.5 goals can be backed at 11/10 (2.10).

Wednesday night sees England as 13/10 (2.30) favourites to beat Croatia, who are 23/10 (3.30) with dabblebet, whilst the draw is 11/5 (3.20).

The Three Lions saw off Sweden 2-0 in the quarter-finals to keep their first clean sheet of the tournament, whilst Croatia beat Russia on penalties in the same round – meaning they have gone the distance in both knockout games.

Zlatko Dalic’s men are 23/20 (2.15) to qualify by any means and reach their first ever World Cup final, with Gareth Southgate’s counterparts just 4/6 (1.66) in dabblebet’s early pricing.

Both teams to score, which has landed in six of the 10 games these sides have played, is 11/10 (2.10), with over 2.5 goals priced at 7/5 (2.40).
