Euro 2020: Denmark to face Czech Republic in quarter-finals, Sports News


The UEFA Euro 2020 re-visits of the overlay with a bunch of critical quarter-finals coordinate with this weekend as Denmark face the Czech Republic at the Baku Olympic Stadium on Saturday. Both teams have been completely formidable this mid-year and have a great time to show this weekend.

The Czech Republic have fought reliably at a surprisingly high level over the past month and have overseen superb results against Croatia and Scotland. The Czechs shocked the Netherlands in the round of 16 and will be overjoyed to the brim with certainty ahead of this match.

Denmark, again, continued on a genuinely embarrassing excursion into their league stage and needed a splendid 4-1 triumph over Russia to come up with the low blows. The Danes were electrifying against Wales and could in fact be surprisingly strong contenders for Euro 2020.

There have already been 11 clashes between the two teams, with the Czech Republic winning three times, one more than Denmark. The Crown Jewels have been shared across six events between the different parties. Oddly enough, five of their last six clashes have ended in dead ends, with Denmark winning 3-0 away in a FIFA World Cup qualifier in March 2013.

Czech Republic vs. Denmark

Yussuf Poulsen and Daniel Wass missed the clash in Wales due to injury, while Simon Kjaer must be substituted in the next half, but the triplet should be accessible for the final challenge.

Martin Braithwaite, Kasper Dolberg and Mikkel Damsgaard dazzled in the last break and will all be sure to hold their places.

Probable starting XI (3-4-3): Schmeichel; Christensen, Kjaer, Vestergaard; Wass, Hojbjerg, Delaney, Maehle; Braithwaite, Dolberg, Damsgaard.

The Czech Republic has Jan Boril accessible after a suspension and he will likely come back to the left-back.

Jaroslav Silhavy has choices to make elsewhere; Vladimir Darida and Jakub Jankto were named to the seat against the Netherlands, but could supplant Antonin Barak and Petr Sevcik if the head coach decides not to keep a triumphant formula.

In terms of protection, Denmark has no motivation to rub shoulders with the three backs of Andreas Christensen, Jannik Vestergaard and Simon Kjaer. The TRIO offers an optimal balance of detail and leadership, giving goaltender Kasper Schmeichel top-notch inclusion in the middle of the sticks.

Probable starting XI (4-2-3-1): Vaclik; Coufal, Celustka, Kalas, Boril; Holes, Soucek; Masopust, Barak, Sevcik; Schick


Denmark are surely the first choice before this meeting due to their incredible form and free scores. The resurgence of players like Dolberg, Braithwaite and the predictable exposures of Maehle and Hojbjerg give them the advantage in defense, midfield and assault.

The Czech Republic are a strong team who are ready to move on to the next round. Although they may fight to find a solution to Denmark’s attack, especially if the resistance can stay clear of any stupid mistakes.
