Forecasts for Denmark vs. Belgium in Euro 2020 Group B
Denmark had a humiliating start to their UEFA Euro 2020 campaign, as their opener against Finland was marred by a cardiac arrest suffered by Christian Eriksen in the first half. The game was temporarily halted, and Eriksen has since provided a positive update on his condition, while his teammates soldiered on to finish the match, only to be defeated 1-0 by Finland. The challenge for Kasper Hjulmand's side does not get any easier on Matchday 2, with top-ranked Belgium paying them a visit up next.
Belgium, on the other hand, started their Euro 2020 campaign with a 3-0 victory over Russia. Star striker Romelu Lukaku paid a fitting tribute to his Nerazzurri teammate Eriksen after breaking the deadlock against Russia in their opening match, and the forward would go on to steal the show with a brace in a 3-0 victory. Lukaku scored either side of Thomas Meunier's tap-in as Belgium cruised to victory at the Gazprom Arena.
Team news, injuries, and suspensions for Denmark vs. Belgium

Kevin De Bruyne, Belgium's talisman, is recovering well from facial fractures and could return to the squad. Timothy Castagne's Euro campaign, on the other hand, is over after a nasty clash of heads with Daler Kuzyaev on matchday 1. Eden Hazare is expected to start in attack for the visitors alongside Romelu Lukaku.
