Denmark prepares to begin Euro 2020 play in Group B as they will host Belgium on Thursday at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen. Kasper Hjulmand’s side began their campaign with a 1-0 loss to Finland, which was overshadowed by Christian Eriksen’s ordeal, while Belgium cruised to a 3-0 victory against Russia. Here is everything you need to know about Denmark vs Belgium prediction and lineup.
Denmark lineup: Schmeichel; Wass, Kjaer, Christensen, Maehle; Delaney, Hojbjerg, Jensen; Poulsen, Dolberg, Braithwaite
Denmark will miss Christian Eriksen who suffered a cardiac arrest in the last match against Finland on Saturday.
The Danish federation will have to check on the well-being of their players after the upsetting events during the weekend.
Belgium lineup: Courtois; Alderweireld, Boyata, Vermaelen; Meunier, Tielemans, Dendoncker, T.Hazard; Mertens, Lukaku, Carrasco
In the match against Russia, Jan Vertonghen injured his ankle and will need to be evaluated but to avoid any dangers, Thomas Vermaelen can substitute.
Timothy Castagne sustained a double fracture in his eye socket against Russia and likely to miss the remaining of Euro 2020.
Thomas Meunier came on as a substitute for Castagne and scored, so it’s reasonable to say he’ll start here.
Kevin De Bruyne is expected to return to the matchday squad, but he may not start.
Eden Hazard is still working on his match fitness, but he could start here after coming off the bench against Russia.
Axel Witsel got recovered soon than expected and is anticipated to start against Denmark as a substitute.
Denmark’s football player Christian Eriksen required life-saving care as he fainted on the pitch against Finland on Saturday. Belgium cruised to a 3-0 victory over Russia. Nothing less was expected from a pre-tournament favorite facing a dreadful Russia team.
On Thursday, no matter what the score will be in the top left-hand corner, Denmark fans will definitely be proud of their players, and Hjulmand will do his utmost to rally his disgruntled troops ahead of such a difficult match.
Football will unite as one when Belgium visits Copenhagen, Martinez’s men must just concentrate on the task at hand when the referee’s whistle blows, and we do not anticipate Denmark to surprise the Red Devils.
Our Prediction: Denmark 0-2 Belgium
