It was an emotional evening at Parken stadium in Copenhagen, one of our featured outsider picks Denmark took on Belgium in their first match since the scary situation where Christian Eriksen collapsed late in the first half vs Finland.
Some analysts were worried the Danish side would have trouble focusing, but those concerns were quickly put to rest and Denmark delivered probably the best defensive 45 minutes by any team so far in the Euros.
Yussouf Poulsen put in a terrific goal not long after the first whistle on a good sequence of high pressure where Emile-Hojbjerg picked off a weak pass and quickly delivered the ball in scoring position. Collective pressure is a strength of Denmark and it showed.
Belgium had one shot on goal in the first half and top goal scorer so far, Romeo Lukaku, didn’t manage even a single touch within the Danish penalty box.
In the 2nd half the Belgium side got much better after it, De Bruyne was substituted into the match along with Hazard and they made a significant difference, especially on the counters.
Two world class combinations, one with an assist from De Bruyne and one goal to put his team ahead 1-2 more or less left the stadium in awe.
Denmark did manage to gather themselves and creating three or four pretty good opportunities, including a header on the cross bar by Barcelona man Martin Braithwaite.
In the end it wasn’t to be for the Danish side and Belgium escaped with the 1-2 win.

Football Betting FAQ
Can I bet on the result of a match, even when the match has already begun?Yes, you can. The difference here is that you are live betting once betting on a match that has already started. Live betting is another form of betting, with odds changing as the match takes place.
I see a favorite in a match has higher odds thanks to a handicap -1. What does handicap mean?Betting on a team with a handicap makes up for more favorable odds. Handicap -1 means that the team you bet on starts the game with a goal behind, meaning they need to win the match with two goals difference.
I want to put my money on a team with really high odds. Is this a good idea?We are not here to advise you. But there is a reason the odds are high: because chances are small that that team will win the match. So, you might win more, but the chances of winning are smaller.
I want to combine the outcome with the exact score, is this possible?You can combine such bets at most bookies, sometimes even in a single bet.
