Denmark vs Finland betting tips: Match preview
The third match in this Euro 2020 tournament is our first big rivalry match of the competition. Finland are making the short trip to visit one of their fellow Nordic countries in Denmark.
“I’m very satisfied that we are going to play in Group B with Belgium, Denmark and Russia. And it’s very nice to start the tournament playing against Denmark, one of our naughty neighbours.”
– Markku Kanerva, Finland coach
This is Finland’s first appearance in the European Championships. In the Qualifiers, they were shock runners-up in Group J behind Italy after winning 6 of their 10 group matches. They finished above higher-ranked nations in Greece and Bosnia and Herzegovina, after the pair failed to take maximum points from Armenia and Liechtenstein anchoring the table.
Finland’s home form underpinned their good showing in the Qualifiers, winning 4 of their 5 home matches. A narrow 1-2 defeat at the hands of Italy was the only blemish on an otherwise perfect home record after scoring 9 goals without reply in the other 4 games.
Their away form will be a concern, having lost to all but Armenia and Liechtenstein. With Copenhagen and St Petersburg selected as the Group B cities, the Finns will hope the proximity to these cities act as a home advantage for them, particularly when they face Belgium in Russia for the final group game.
Denmark: Euro 2020 dark horses
The Danes are no strangers to this competition. While they missed out on the 2016 Championships, they have a strong record in this competition with this being their ninth appearance. They are also former winners, back in 1992.
Denmark are also the form team coming into the competition. Unlike Finland, who are without a win in their last 6 international matches, The Dannish are unbeaten in their last 5 and have won 9 of their last 11 matches.
The Danes also have the strong upper hand in this head-to-head, with 15 wins, 6 draws and just 1 defeat from the last 22 games against Finland. The only two competitive matches between them are included in this run of games; both of which were won 1—0 by Denmark. The Danes are undefeated in their last 18 home matches in this head-to-head; a run that includes 15 victories.
“We wanted to get Finland because we have played Wales in the Nations League and we’re a bit tired of playing against the British sides. We had Ireland in our group as well. It’s always exciting with new countries and also for the Finnish fans. It’ll be a short trip to Copenhagen, and I think it’ll be an exciting opening game.”
– Åge Hareide, Denmark coach
Denmark team news vs Finland
Kasper Schmeichel’s understudy, Frederik Rönnow, is the only injury doubt coming into Denmark’s opening game of the Euro 2020 tournament. Should the 28-year-old Schalke goalkeeper be unavailable if called upon, the Danes have Jonas Lössl to fall back on.
Andreas Christensen, Simon Kjær and Jannik Vestergaard have been battling to claim one of the two central defensive spots in the side in the warm-up games. Christensen looks almost certain to start after an excellent season at Chelsea. Kjær was preferred over Vestergaard for the World Cup Qualifiers in March and their captain seems likely to get the nod next to Christensen.
Martin Braithwaite, Kasper Dolberg, Yussuf Poulsen, Andreas Cornelius and Jonas Wind have all looked good for Denmark lately. Braithwaite, Poulsen, and Cornelius all got on the scoresheet in their warm-up games. Wind was chosen to lead the line in recent World Cup qualifiers against Israel and Austria and looks most likely to start here.
Danish Squad in Full
Goalkeepers: Kasper Schmeichel (Leicester City), Jonas Lössl (Midtjylland), Frederik Rønnow (Schalke 04)
Defenders: Joachim Andersen (Fulham), Jannik Vestergaard (Southampton), Simon Kjær © (Milan), Joakim Mæhle (Atalanta), Andreas Christensen (Chelsea), Mathias Jørgensen (Copenhagen), Jens Stryger Larsen (Udinese), Nicolai Boilesen (Copenhagen)
Midfielders: Robert Skov (1899 Hoffenheim), Thomas Delaney (Borussia Dortmund), Christian Eriksen (Internazionale), Christian Nørgaard (Brentford), Daniel Wass (Valencia), Pierre-Emile Højbjerg (Tottenham Hotspur), Mathias Jensen (Brentford), Anders Christiansen (Malmö FF)
Forwards: Martin Braithwaite (Barcelona), Andreas Skov Olsen (Bologna), Kasper Dolberg (Nice), Jonas Wind (Copenhagen), Mikkel Damsgaard (Sampdoria), Yussuf Poulsen (RB Leipzig), Andreas Cornelius (Parma)
Finland team news vs Denmark
Markku Kanerva experimented quite a bit with his team in the two warm-up games. He played two different systems with a 4231 against Estonia and a 532 against Sweden. He also named entirely different starting XIs in each match.
Lukáš Hrádecký and Jesse Joronen are waiting to see who will be selected as the #1 between the sticks this tournament. Joronen started the World Cup Qualifiers back in Match when Hrádecký was out with an injury. The pair also started 1 warm-up match apiece. Hrádecký is expected to be restored as Finland’s #1 here.
At the other end of the pitch, Teemu Pukki and Joel Pohjanpalo are both hoping to lead the line for Finland in this tournament. Pukki was favoured from the start of the recent Qualifiers and they likely need the Norwich City striker to breathe some life into an attack that failed to find the net in both warm-up matches.
Finnish Squad in Full
Goalkeepers: Lukáš Hrádecký (Bayer Leverkusen), Jesse Joronen (Brescia), Anssi Jaakkola (Bristol Rovers)
Defenders: Paulus Arajuuri (Pafos), Daniel O’Shaughnessy (HJK), Joona Toivio (Häcken), Leo Väisänen (Elfsborg), Niko Hämäläinen (Queens Park Rangers), Thomas Lam (PEC Zwolle), Nikolai Alho (MTK), Jere Uronen (Genk), Jukka Raitala (Minnesota United), Robert Ivanov (Warta Poznań)
Midfielders: Glen Kamara (Rangers), Robert Taylor (Brann), Robin Lod (Minnesota United), Fredrik Jensen (FC Augsburg), Rasmus Schüller (Djurgården), Pyry Soiri (Esbjerg), Tim Sparv © (AEL), Joni Kauko (Esbjerg), Onni Valakari (Pafos)
