Denmark v Belgium Betting Odds Predictions - European Championship Matchday (2)

The game will be played this Thursday at 4:00pm GMT at the Parken Stadion.

Belgium travel to Copenhagen on Thursday evening to face Denmark in Group B after differing results for each team on matchday one. The Danes fell to a shock 1-0 loss against Finland, while Belgium were far too strong for Russia, eventually running out 3-0 winners in St Petersburg.

There has been little to split this pair through the years and Thursday’s match looks set to be yet another competitive affair.

Denmark Must Bounce Back

Denmark went into the match against Finland as strong favourites but a goal from Joel Pohjanpalo saw Finland take the points while the Danes also missed a penalty. That was the Danes’ first defeat since last September when they were defeated 4-2, by Belgium of all teams.

Important Stat

Saturday’s defeat by Finland was the first time that Denmark had failed to find the net in ten matches and they know they’ll need to get on the scoresheet against Belgium as they chase a vital three points.

Both teams have scored in four of the last five clashes between this pair and it’s 57.47% that they both score again on Thursday.

Belgium Show Why They Are One Of The Favourites

Belgium kicked off their Euro 2020 campaign with a ruthless 3-0 victory over Russia in St Petersburg, highlighting why they are one of the favourites to win the tournament. 

That win in St Petersburg was also the Belgians’ third clean sheet in their last four games and it’s a 30.95% chance that they keep another one on Thursday.

Important Stat

Romelu Lukaku once again got on the scoresheet, scoring twice to make it 20 goals in his last 15 appearances for his country.

Belgium have now scored the opening goal in their last five Euro finals matches and the likelihood of them finding the net first on Thursday is 58.47%.

Win Probability

Belgium arrive in Copenhagen as favourites as they hunt down another victory, and there’s a 46.30% chance that they will manage to notch up another win. Denmark are the underdogs at 28.17% but they have only lost three times in their last 29 matches so could be popular with fans to pull off a shock.

The draw is rated at 30.30% but there have only been three drawn games between these sides in their 15 previous clashes.

Denmark v Belgium Head-to-Heads.

This duo have faced off against each other 15 times through the years - the Danes have registered six wins, Belgium have also taken six, and there were three drawn games. The Belgians have held the upper hand recently though, winning both Nations League clashes last year, 2-0 and 4-2 respectively.

Having scored six goals against Denmark in their last two clashes the Belgians will again be hoping to be an attacking threat on Thursday and it’s 21.27% that they score three or more goals.

Performance Report

Denmark manager Kasper Hjulmand will once more look to 22-year-old Copenhagen striker Jonas Wind to spearhead the Danish attack. Wind ended the season by netting four goals in the last six games for his club.

Romelu Lukaku is one of the hottest international strikers around right now and the Belgian striker will be hoping to add to his tally against Denmark.
