Denmark vs Belgium: Team Preview
Denmark’s UEFA Euro 2020 campaign got off to a disastrous start against Finland, with Christian Eriksen suffering a cardiac arrest in the first half. And, if it hadn’t been for the quick efforts of referee Anthony Taylor and the medical professionals on hand, things may have turned out even worse.
Eriksen has subsequently provided a good report on his status, while his teammates continued the play on the same day before losing 1-0 to Finland. Denmark’s task becomes even more difficult now, as top-ranked Belgium pays them a visit.
Belgium kicked off their Euro 2020 campaign with an easy 0-3 win over Russia in Saint Petersburg, a match in which they were barely challenged and further validated their status as one of the favorites to win the tournament.
Romelu Lukaku, the Red Devils’ all-time leading scorer, got off to a strong start in his pursuit for the tournament’s top scorer accolade and is expected to make a difference once again. Belgium would like to win this encounter and guarantee their spot in the knockout stages, with playmaker Kevin De Bruyne possibly returning to the side.
DEN VS BEL Head to Head
Denmark and Belgium have been on each other’s throats with each winning seven games out of the fifteen contested between them. Belgium had an upper hand when the two sides last met in 2020 beating Denmark by 4-2.
