Tip Russia - Denmark
So far Denmark haven’t been able to benefit from playing at home after two rounds in Euro 2020 and when they wrap up their group games with a clash against Russia they’ll hope to give home fans something to cheer about. There’s a high likelihood Group B will see three teams finish with three points after the three matches. At the moment, Denmark are bottom of the pool without a point after losses to Finland and Belgium. Their placing in this group doesn’t reflect their performance on the pitch; they’ve been one of the best technical sides at the competition and their two losses have been down to hard luck. They went to this competition on a very strong run, and going to this game they have six wins in their last 10 matches. The 1-0 loss to Finland marked the only time they failed to score in the last 13 matches and they will be desperate to restore their winning run at home, having won five straight before the Euros. They had a good start against Belgium in their last game but a stronger Belgium side overpowered them in the second half to win 2-1 though Denmark pushed to the final whistle.
Russia registered a 1-0 win over Finland in their last game, throwing this group wide open and they will be gunning for another win here as they look to secure a place in the knockouts. That was a big recovery for the side that suffered a 3-0 loss in the opening game but of course Finland were a much weaker opponent than Belgium. That win was Russia’s second in the last five matches and also the second clean sheet. Even though Russia managed a win there, the general quality of the game was poor with both sides struggling to string passes and thus slowing the match. They go to this game requiring a draw to advance and they may try to sit back and hope to counter. This may not work against Denmark.
Key points Russia - Denmark
Russia have two wins in their last five matches.
Denmark have six wins in their last 10 matches.
Denmark have failed to score in one of the last 13 matches.
Russia haven’t scored more than a goal in their last five matches.
Conclusion Russia - Denmark
Denmark are expected to throw all at Russia, and this will be a tougher game as they put up a final assault in search of that second round position. The Danes will enjoy vocal support again and in Russia’s performance in the last two matches, they will struggle to cope here. Back Denmark to win.
