Denmark and Finland will start with the first match of Group B of the European Championship at Parken Stadium on Saturday, June 12, 2021.
The home team will have an advantage given that the match is in Copenhagen, but also for the other 2 matches, which will again be in Denmark, so the red and white team will have the support of the fans in the stadium, which, although reduced, will still help of the Danish team. Coach Casper Hulmand has managed to build a strong team that recently drew with Germany in a friendly. Here the 3 points are very important for Denmark if it wants to move forward in the championship. The team is a favorite according to the bookmakers, and the home advantage further tilts the scales to win over Finland.
The guests from Italy in this match will do everything possible to take the victory or at least a point that will be important in the fight for the first two places. However, the Finnish team does not have the history of Denmark in major tournaments, as this is their first place in the European Championship since 1938 year. Finland could not succeed in their last international matches, but still the team should not be underestimated and a surprise is possible. In this match, in my opinion, the better team is that of Denmark, and the advantage of the host would affect the final result. My prediction is for the victory of the Danes in this match.
Probable lineup Denmark: Schmeichel; Wass, Christensen, Kjaer, Maehle; Hojbjerg, Delaney; Poulsen, Eriksen, Braithwaite; Wind
Probable lineup Finland: Hradecky; Arajuuri, Toivio, O’Shaughnessy; Raitala, Kamara, Sparv, Lod, Uronen; Ostrobothnia, Pukki
Prediction – both teams to score – 1.42 from 22bet
