Denmark face the Czech Republic in the UEFA Euro 2020 quarter-final this evening (Saturday) at Baku Olympic stadium in Azerbaijan.
Denmark’s Euro 2020 tournament started with Christian Eriksen’s tragic collapse and back-to-back defeats to Finland and Belgium.
However, an inspiring 4-0 victory over Russia saw them clinch second place in Group B out of nowhere.
The Czech Republic are not an opposition to be taken lightly, though, having beaten the Netherlands in the Round of 16.
One may argue that they got a bit lucky with the dismissal of Matthijs de Ligt, but a tireless all-round performance meant they were the clear victors in Hungary.
Jaroslav Silhavy’s men only progressed to the knockout stages as one of the four best third-placed teams in the competition.
But their performance in the last round suggests they are capable of advancing further than the quarter-finals.
Czech Vs Denmark Lineup
Czech Republic XI (4-2-3-1): Vaclík, Coufal, Čelůstka, Kalas, Bořil, Holeš, Souček, Masopust, Barák, Ševčík, Schick
Denmark XI (3-4-2-1): Schmeichel, Christensen, Kjær, Vestergaard, Larsen, Højbjerg, Delaney, Maehle, Braithwaite, Dolberg, Damsgaard
Kick-off is at 17:00 (GMT +1).
