Saturday 3 July
Baku Olympic Stadium – Euro 2020
Denmark will be aiming to the reach the European Championships semi finals for the first time since they won the competition back in 1992 as they take on the Czech Republic in the last eight. Kasper Hjulmand’s side finished second in Group B with the Czechs qualifying for the knockouts as a bonus third place finisher, and neither nation would have been considered among the favourites in the football betting online prior to the start of Euro 2020.
Five of the last six games between these two sides have ended in draws with one win for Denmark back in 2013 as part of their 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign.
Czech Republic boss Jaroslav Šilhavý is likely to name an unchanged starting line up from their last 16 win over the Netherlands.
Hjulmand will be aiming to keep his own changes to a minimum for this tie but Thomas Delaney faces a late fitness test ahead of the trip to Azerbaijan.
Czech Republic vs. Denmark Preview and Predictions
The Czech Republic pulled off the big shock of the last 16 round as they beat a 10-man Netherlands 2-0 in Budapest despite going into the game as outsiders. Šilhavý’s side showed resilience to get a huge result against the Dutch and collect their second win in the competition after beating Scotland in their tournament opener.
Denmark marched into the quarter finals via an impressive 4-0 win over Wales in Amsterdam after only picking up their first group game win in the final round of fixtures. Both sides will be buoyed by the chance to reach the last four for the first time in over 20 years but the Danes look to have a key edge and a win for Hjulmand and his team comes in at 2.10 inside the 90 minutes. The Czechs are priced at 3.85, while the draw is 3.25. To go through, the odds change to 2.40 for the Czechs and 1.55 for the Danes.
Kasper Dolberg netted twice in the win over Wales and the Nice forward will be a key figure for the Danish in this game, while Patrik Schick will be the main man for the Czechs after netting four goals in four games so far this summer.
Denmark to win 2-0 at 8.50
The two respective results for these two sides in the last 16 have given them a significant boost but the pressure will be a big factor in this tie. Denmark look to be a team hitting form at the perfect moment in the competition, in comparison, the Czechs benefitted from a positive situation against the Dutch in their first knockout game.
Both teams not to score 1.66
Denmark have shown just how ruthless they can be in their last two games with four goals scored against both Russia and Wales. However, they have also looked strong defensively in those games, with back to back clean sheets from open play and just three shots on target against in two games.
