Denmark 1/2 to beat Finland in Saturday’s EURO’s showdown

Competition: European Championships

Market: Denmark win

Odds: 1/2 @ 888sport

Looking to get their European adventure off to a flying start on Saturday evening, Denmark will face off against Finland in Copenhagen.

Starting with the hosts, backed by home support when opening their European run this weekend, Denmark will be confident of putting on a show in Copenhagen. Picking up some perfect momentum last week and landing themselves a 2-0 win against Bosnia, The Reds were also fully deserving of their 1-1 draw against former world champions Germany in their opening friendly contest. Tipped as the leading pick with many to secure second-spot behind Belgium in Group B this summer, Kasper Hjulmand’ side also laid down a real marker during their World Cup qualifiers earlier in the year. Landing themselves a maximum of nine points and gaining plenty of plaudits, Denmark also signed off March’s fixtures with a thumping 4-0 win against Serbia. In fact, aside from a 4-2 defeat against Belgium last year, Saturday’s hosts are unbeaten in each of their other 10 contests.

As for the visitors, while Denmark might have managed to gain some perfect momentum heading into this summer’s European Championships, the same cannot be said for a struggling Finland. Only coming under real scrutiny for their performances in a trio of friendly contests last week, The Eagle-owls lost all three of those matchups, including a woeful 1-0 loss against Estonia on home soil. In the midst of what has been a torrid run of form and failing to make much of a mark in March’s World Cup qualifiers, Finland have failed to win any of their last six matchups across all formats, a run highlighted by a 3-1 defeat against Wales. Facing what is a tough ask when they travel to Copenhagen this weekend, we’re backing what should be a routine opener for Saturday’s hosts.
