The Czech Republic had a shaky group-stage campaign. They registered a comfortable 2-0 win over Scotland before managing to get a 1-1 draw with Croatia and succumbing to a 0-1 loss to England in the final game of Group D. The Lokomotiva sneaked into the Round of 16 by finishing third in the group, which also was the second-best third-place finish behind Portugal across all groups. The Czechs might have caused the tournament’s biggest upset so far as they knocked the Netherlands out of the competition in the Round of 16 with a 2-0 victory. Jaroslav Silhavy has unleashed several surprise picks so far in the campaign with the likes of Patrick Shick, Pavel Kaderabak and Antonin Barak, among others.
Denmark have bounced back in style in the tournament after the unfortunate event of Christian Eriksen collapsing on the field and losing the first game, 0-1 to their Nordic neighbours, Finland. The Danes managed to show some sheen in their second group encounter, but the Belgians were too good for Kasper Hjulmund’s side, as they succumbed to a 2-1 defeat. Nevertheless, Denmark clinched an inspiring win in their final group-stage game over Russia with a 4-1 scoreline in front of home supporters in Copenhagen. The likes of Mikkel Damsgaard and Kasper Dolberg have been two of the many revelations of the Denmark squad as they blew away Wales, 4-0 in the Round of 16.
Denmark have been pegged as favourites to win against the Czech Republic, with 888sport offering 3/2 odds for a Danes victory which is somewhat unlikely given the form of the team. Meanwhile, bookies offer the Czechs an odds of 59/20 to win. The two sides are earmarked for a possible draw after regulation time, with 11/5 being the odds. Kasper Dolberg is predicted to open the scoring with a 6/1 odds.
Both the teams like to play with the ball and against the run of play. While the Czech Republic have displayed their intense high pressing against the Netherlands in the Round of 16, Denmark have some very quick runners in their team, which can cause problems for the East European side.
Both the teams have a full-strength squad at their disposals, making the tie a very competitive one. While it is tough to call for an all-out winner courtesy of the two teams being on a fantastic run of form, Denmark will have a slight edge over the Czechs simply due to the sparring presence of individual brilliance in their squad.
Damsgaard and Dolberg have got into the groove after a mediocre club football season, while the Czechs will look up to Schick to score. There are lots of betting offers on sale at 888sport for betting on Euro 2020.
The game will be televised live on BBCOne in the UK from 5 PM BST onwards. BBCOne will start covering the game an hour before kick-off. Fans can catch up on the live-action on BBC iPlayer. Some bookmakers also provide live coverage of the games if you place bets on the game.
