Denmark and Finland are both aiming to start Euro 2020 with a win when they face off at Parken Stadium in Copenhagen on Saturday evening.
The pair face a tough ask to top Group B ahead of Belgium but will both fancy their chances of reaching the knockout stages by finishing second or as one of the best third-place teams.
Denmark vs Finland Latest Odds
Playing on home turf, Denmark are 4/9 (1.44) favourites with bet365 to open their campaign with three points against one of the rank outsiders in the competition.
Finland have lost four and drawn two of their last six games and it is no surprise to see them at 8/1 (9.0) to stun their Nordic rivals.
It was a draw when the sides last met in this stadium back in 2003 and another stalemate is available at 3/1 (4.0) with the online bookmaker.
Denmark vs Finland Team News
Kasper Hjulmand should be able to name his strongest team for this one, with the likes of Kasper Schmeichel, Simon Kjaer, Christian Eriksen and Martin Braithwaite amongst the big names expected to start.
Teemu Pukki played 30 minutes in Finland’s last friendly match, ending fears he may miss this game due to an ankle problem, whilst captain Tim Sparv should return after sitting out that defeat to Estonia.
Denmark vs Finland Preview
Denmark come into Euro 2020 as one of the dark horses and will have aspirations of justifying that tag with a strong run that begins on Saturday.
Hjulmand’s men have been in good form over the last nine months with victories over England and Sweden as well as a creditable draw with Germany last week, and should have more than enough to see off Finland.
Indeed, the Eagle-owls have lost their most recent three friendlies, including against Estonia at home on Friday, whilst draws against Ukraine and Bosnia-Herzegovina in March offer little encouragement.
Denmark vs Finland Tips and Predictions
Denmark have won four of their last five games without conceding, with only Germany managing to score, and another victory to nil is offered at Evens (2.0) by bet365.
