Denmark will be looking to make an immediate impact in the opening game of the UEFA Euro competition. They will be facing an easy-going Finnish who will be without their star-man, Teemu Pukki.
In a group of Russia, Denmark, Finland, and Belgium, the Danes will rival Belgians for the top spot in Group F.
Denmark 3-0 Finland
Denmark 0-1 Finland
The Danes previously won the Euro championship back in 1992. However, 2012 proved to be a very disappointing year for Denmark as they had to face an exit in the group stages.
In the latter stages, Denmark failed to qualify for Euros but succeeded in qualifying for the current tournament.
In all honesty, Denmark does possess a strong squad right now and there are big chances they will give Belgium a tough match, but we’re at their mercy to find out.
Finland is without a win in their past six games (4L 2D), and they face a challenging task ahead of the Euro competition.
No doubt, it will tough for them to secure a top spot in the European championship because their recent form hasn’t been kind to them.
Their form dipped in friendlies against Estonia and Sweden. However, if a team can generate upheaval, it is Finland. This is Finland.
We can just wait and see what’s going on.
The prospects of both teams starting will be like the following:
Denmark: Kasper Schmeichel; Wass, Christensen, Kjaer, Maehle; Hojbjerg, Delaney; Poulsen, Eriksen, Braithwaite; Wind
Finland: Hradecky; Arajuuri, Toivio, O’Shaughnessy; Raitala, Kamara, Sparv, Lod, Uronen; Pohjanpalo, Pukki
In all fairness, we predict a one-sided affair for Denmark. Here’s what our experts predict for the game today.
