Denmark continues their quest for success at the Euro 2020 by playing Belgium at Parken in Copenhagen, the venue of the drama in their first match. 12 matches are to be played in round 2 of the group stages at the Euro 2020 and this one takes place this coming Thursday. Denmark bring a ranking of number 10 in the FIFA world charts to the table, sitting fairly close to Belgium who come here with a ranking of number 1.
Before their first match at the tournament the troops of coach Kasper Hjulmand were expected to at least challenge for 1st place in their group. A plan which probably went down the drain when Christian Eriksen suffered his dreadful heart attack. God only knows how the Danish squad reacts to that drama against Finland.
Belgium headed into the Euro 2020 expected to play for the title as they had little trouble qualifying as winners of their group.
Denmark vs Belgium stats and analysis
Denmark have not too hot to handle in front of goals in their last Euro matches. Denmark scored 25 times in the last 10 internationals creating an average of 2.5 goals per game. They held on for a clean sheet in 4 of these matches, conceding 9 goals which is an average of 0.9 per game.
Belgium are brimming with confidence at the Euro 2020 with extraordinarily good stats from their last 10 Euro internationals. Belgium managed a massive 4 goals a game, scoring 44 times while allowing a scarcely noticeable 2 goals against them. That is an impressively low 0.2 per game, with a clean sheet in 8 of the matches.
The Danish team face a massive task of getting the players ready to continue the Euro 2020 after the drama surrounding Christian Eriksen. They did not play well against Finland, even before he went out, and question is whether facing a side like Belgium is simply too big a task.
You can not do much better than getting a Euro campaign going by hammering your first opponent 3-0, and Belgium will be red-hot going into their second match at the Euro 2020.
