Denmark will be eager to get off to the best possible start when they take on Finland in the tournament opener on Saturday evening. For the first place in Group F, the Danes will be looking to compete with Belgium, but Russia will also be looking to get to the knockout stage, so it will be an intriguing competition in this division. Here is our prediction on Denmark vs Finland Euro 2020 match.
Denmark lineup: Schmeichel; Wass, Christensen, Kjaer, Maehle; Hojbjerg, Delaney; Poulsen, Eriksen, Braithwaite; Wind
In the defense of Denmark, Andreas Christensen is anticipated to start with Simon Kjaer in the Denmark defense, ahead of Jannik Vestergaard.
For the position of attack leader, Jonas Wind, Kasper Dolberg, and Andreas Cornelius are vying.
Finland lineup: Hradecky; Arajuuri, Toivio, O’Shaughnessy; Raitala, Kamara, Sparv, Lod, Uronen; Pohjanpalo, Pukki
Teemu Pukki made his comeback off the bench in Finland’s final warm-up game after being sidelined for a few weeks with an ankle injury
The Norwich striker represents his team’s hopes in many respects, so even if he is totally fit, he is likely to start.
Markku Kanerva has plenty of options to join Pukki, with Joel Pohjanpalo and Marcus Forss pushing for a starting berth, despite the latter’s impressive performance from the bench last season for Brentford.
Denmark is the favorite to beat its Scandinavian rivals Finland on Saturday, having well prepared for. The Danish Dynamite is unbeaten in 2021 winning four of their five games while drawing with Germany.
On the other hand, Finland has lost three of its last six games. In November they defeated 2018 World Cup winners France, demonstrating that they are capable of rising to the occasion when facing the big boys.
Finland has the ability to make this a challenging match for Denmark, but we’re having trouble looking past the Danes on this occasion.
Hjulmand’s team has won nine of their past 11 international games, and they should be too strong for a Finland team coming off three consecutive losses.
Our Prediction: Denmark 2-0 Finland
