Russia vs Denmark Preview

Denmark aim for maximum points against Russia

Russia makes the trip to Denmark for their third and final group B clash at Euro 2020, after having the home advantage at the Saint Petersburg Stadium against Belgium and Finland.

This time around, Denmark find themselves in front of their home fans who were the 12th man in the impressive display against Belgium, narrowly succumbing to a 2-1 defeat in Copenhagen.

The Danish were the better team for large periods of the Belgium game and will look to take the positives from that performance into this crunch game.

Russia

Russian attacker Aleksey Miranchuk’s goal gave his nation three points against Finland and now stand a solid chance of qualifying if they can manage to get a win or draw away in Denmark.

With Belgium fully expected to run riot over Finland, it means Russia and Denmark have it all to play for, as claiming maximum points would surely seal the second position.

Imposing centre forward Artem Dzyuba has failed to make an impact thus far, while Aleksandr Golovin is expected to shoulder the creative force from the midfield with Valencia’s Denis Cheryshev racing against time to be fit for the high stake’s matchup.
Dynamo Moscow goalkeeper Anton Shunin was replaced by Krasnodar’s Matvey Safonov between the sticks, after Shunin let in three goals against Belgium in the opening match.

Experienced defender Yuri Zhirkov will miss out due to injury, leaving the inexperienced defence to shoulder the burden of keeping a clean sheet against a competitive Denmark outfit.

Denmark

The Danish Dynamite took Belgium by surprise with RB Leipzig’s Yussuf Poulsen scoring after 99 seconds, thanks to Tottenham midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg anticipating and intercepting the Red Devils’ unsuccessful attempt to play out from the back.

Denmark was then fearless and looked threatening on the counter attack as Belgium failed to adapt. Coach Kasper Hjulmand has now suffered back-to-back defeats for the first time as Denmark boss. He’ll be relying on 20-year-old midfielder Mikkel Damsgaard to step into Christian Eriksen’s role to assist Poulsen and Martin Braithwaite.

Meanwhile, Thomas Delaney and Hojbjerg will have their work cut out against the physical Russian midfield. Kasper Schmeichel will be aiming to keep his first clean sheet of the tournament against a misfiring Dzyuba.

Prediction: Away Win To Nil (Yes) 7/4
Denmark is the home team, but according to the group stage draw, the Danish are named second as the visitors. I strongly fancy Denmark to make the home advantage count and keep a clean sheet, while netting a few goals. If you are as confident as I am, select the Away Win To Nil (Yes) option at 7/4 odds. Clean Sheet Away Team (Yes) is also well worth a punt at 12/10.
