At the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen, Denmark will host Belgium on Thursday evening as they prepare to begin Euro 2020 play in Group B. Belgium cruised to a 3-0 victory against Russia, on the other hand, Kasper Hjulmand’s side began their campaign with a 1-0 loss to Finland, which was overshadowed by footballer Christian Eriksen’s ordeal. Here is our expert guess on Denmark vs Belgium prediction and lineup for Euro 2020 Group B match.
Denmark lineup: Schmeichel; Wass, Kjaer, Christensen, Maehle; Delaney, Hojbjerg, Jensen; Poulsen, Dolberg, Braithwaite
Christian Eriksen ruled out from this match after having a heart arrest against Finland on Saturday.
Danish federation will check on health updates of their players after the upsetting events during the weekend.
Belgium lineup: Courtois; Alderweireld, Boyata, Vermaelen; Meunier, Tielemans, Dendoncker, T.Hazard; Mertens, Lukaku, Carrasco
Jan Vertonghen needs to be evaluated as he injured his ankle against Russia. To avoid any dangers, Thomas Vermaelen may be rotated in.
Timothy Castagne has been ruled out of Euro 2020 after sustaining a double fracture in his eye socket against Russia.
Kevin De Bruyne is expected to return to the matchday squad, but he may not start.
Eden Hazard came off the bench in the match against Russia and can start here too but he is still working on his match fitness.
Axel Witsel is expected to start against Denmark as a substitute after he made a faster recovery.
Denmark is upset with the health of Christian Eriksen after he collapsed in the middle of the match against Finland on Saturday and required life-saving care. Belgium cruised to a 3-0 victory over Russia. Given the close ties that several of Belgium’s players have with Eriksen, this will be a difficult game for them.
Denmark fans will definitely be proud of their players no matter what the score is in the top left-hand corner on Thursday. Ahead of a difficult match, Hjulmand will do his utmost to rally his disgruntled troops.
When Belgium visits Copenhagen, football will unite as one, but Martinez’s men must just concentrate on the task at hand when the referee’s whistle blows, and we do not anticipate Denmark to surprise the Red Devils.
Our Prediction: Denmark 0-2 Belgium
