Parken Stadium - Copenhagen
Group stage - Group B
The match of a lifetime for both teams. It is enough for Russia not to lose to Denmark, while the Danes need only a victory over the Russians and a win for the Belgians over the Finns. Will Denmark be rewarded for their terrible execution, or will Russia will be defeated in Copenhagen?
Russia current form
The Russian national team squeezed out a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Finland. The victory was hard-fought, which did not convince fans and experts of the Russians' claim to make the playoffs. There is no position play, the execution of attacks is below the plinth (thanks to Ozdoyev and Zhemaletdinov for that), there is no tactical flexibility, and there is no dedication to the level of the 2018 World Cup. Therefore, it seems that another collapse is inevitable, especially when a tie is enough. It is enough to remember the 2002 World Cup when we lost to Belgium, or Euro 2012 when we beat the Greeks in a botched and thoughtless game. In both cases, a draw was enough. And our opponent is the home team, a charged, spirited team that is not afraid to play number one. Belgium will not lie.
Denmark current form
One of the most unlucky teams in the Euros. Eriksen, lost to the Finns (0-1), took 22 shots on goal, lost to the Belgians (1-2) offensively with 21 shots on goal. Plus the Danes dominated the first half, which could have gone into halftime with a bigger score than 1-0. A very unlucky and selfless team.
Experts betting tips
We believe that the Danes will outplay the Russians due to their spirit and better chemistry. The current squad of the Russian team is very raw and flabby. The Russians have no chance against Denmark as well as against Belgium in the first game. That's why we think that Russia will unquestionably lose. Bookmakers give odds of 1.74 for the Danes' victory with a one-goal handicap. But we are also sure that Russia will not get to the gate of the Danes and the scoreboard will show more than one goal for the Danes. So we recommend betting on a total of under 2.5 Denmark goals. Betting company bet365 gives odds of 1.28 for this bet. Parimatch gives odds of 1.952 for the both to score - no.
