Russia vs Denmark: Prediction and Betting Tips
A point may be enough for Russia
After losing to Belgium in their opening match 3-0, Russia bounced back by beating Finland 1-0 and keeping their hopes alive in qualifying for the second round. A draw will be enough for the Russians to finish second given that Belgium beats Finland. If Russia loses, they will enter complicated calculations and much will depend on other teams’ scores.
It was a tough opening game for coach Chechesov’s team as they were completely dominated by the world’s number one ranked team Belgium who had 62% of ball possession. It was supposed to be easier in the second match. Despite winning 1-0, the Russians didn’t impress and they need to be at their very best to at least get a point in Copenhagen.
Russia Key Points
- Russia had four shots on goal in two matches in Euro 2020
- In seven of Russia’s nine matches over 2.5 goals were scored
- BTTS happened in Russia’s five of the last ten matches
Denmark with a slight chance of qualifying
Denmark had a very dramatic start to Euro 2020. With Eriksen’s incident covering all of the Football world, the Danes suffered when they continued the match against Finland although they looked determined to win, a surprise goal by the Finns and a missed penalty by Hojbjerg meant that Denmark’s night wouldn’t get any better other than Eriksen’s wellbeing.
The Danes went ahead in their match against Belgium after just two minutes and had many more goal attempts than Belgium with 22 to six. But the Belgians were more effective and after De Bruyne and Eden Hazard were introduced to the game, Denmark couldn’t handle the pressure defensively and conceded the second after some neat play by the Belgians.
Denmark Key Points
- Denmark have failed to score in one of their last ten matches
- BTTS happened in 40% of Denmark’s last ten matches
- Denmark had clean sheets in five of their last ten matches
Russia vs Denmark Prediction
Looking at both teams’ performances so far in the Euro, it is very surprising to see Denmark without a point. It wasn’t fair for them to continue playing against Finland and they paid the price.
Russia looked helpless against Belgium and despite beating Finland in their second game, they weren’t impressive. But in the end, the three points are what counts. They need to be faultless defensively as Denmark will play with all its offensive power.
We think Denmark can win this match but goal average is key and it might be the only way to decide the qualifier for the second round. We predict we will see goals in this match and most probably over 2.5.
