Denmark vs Finland Live: preview, team news and predictions
With this Euro 2020 match taking place in Copenhagen, Goal is backing the Danes to hold firm on their way to three points in their opening Group B match. Denmark and Finland will both be looking to start Euro 2020 with a win when they meet on Saturday evening at Parken Stadium in Copenhagen.
The pair will face a difficult task in topping Group B ahead of Belgium, but they will both fancy their chances of progressing to the knockout stages if they finish second or as one of the best third-place teams.
Team News: Denmark vs. Finland
Kasper Hjulmand should be able to name his strongest team for this one, with big names like Kasper Schmeichel, Simon Kjaer, Christian Eriksen, and Martin Braithwaite expected to start.
Teemu Pukki played 30 minutes in Finland's last friendly match, putting an end to speculation that he would miss this game due to an ankle injury, while captain Tim Sparv is expected to return after sitting out the defeat to Estonia.
Finland vs. Denmark Preview
Denmark enters Euro 2020 as one of the dark horses, and they will hope to justify that label with a strong run that begins on Saturday.
Hjulmand's men have been in good form in recent months, with victories over England and Sweden, as well as a creditable draw with Germany last week, and should have more than enough to defeat Finland.
Indeed, the Eagle-owls have lost their last three friendlies, including a home loss to Estonia on Friday, while draws against Ukraine and Bosnia-Herzegovina in March provide little hope.
