Czech Republic and Denmark are facing off at Baku Olympic Stadium in the Quarterfinals of the Euro Cup 2021. Czech Republic has had a fantastic game against Netherlands in the Round of 16, and they will look for another good performance in this match. Denmark has found their way in the attacking end, and they have scored impressive 8 goals in their last 2 games.
Czechs are in solid form, and they have one of the best strikers of this tournament in their lineup, Patrik Schick who scored 4 goals so far. In that game against Netherlands, Czech Republic has had 48% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 73% of the correct passes. This was a tense game where neither team had the advantage, until the moment when Netherlands conceded a red card, and that was when everything shifted Czech Republic’s way. With 2 goals in the second half, Czech Republic has won this match 0-2, and they have knocked favored Netherlands out of this tournament. Czech is a great team, and they will not give up, but the problem I see for them is that they don’t get goals from anyone other than Schick, and that could be a big issue for them, but Whatever happens, Czechs can be extremely proud of themselves.
Denmark is an awoken beat right now, and with 8 scored goals in their last 2 games, Denmark has looked great. Dolberg, Poulsen, and Maehle are the leading goalscorers for Denmark with 2 goals each. Hojberg is the lead assistant with 3 assists so far. In their Round of 16 matchup against Wales, Denmark has had 53% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and 84% of the correct passes. With a nice goal from Dolberg in the first half, Denmark was even better in the second half with 3 more scored goals, and they have won this match 0-4. Not only Denmark looked well in the attacking end, but they were also solid and calm defensively, and keeping the clean sheet is a huge deal for them. Denmark has a fantastic chance of getting to the semifinals because they are on the easier side of the draw, and they certainly have the quality to do so. Denmark does have a few big names in their roster, but above all else, Denmark is a great and well-coached team that could make anyone sweat.
I have a feeling this could be a fun matchup, and as soon as we see the first goal, I think we will see a few more. Denmark knows who they need to mark, and I think they will do it, and for that reason, I’m taking Denmark in this matchup.
