Wales and Denmark are clashing at Johan Cruijff Arena in the Round of 16 in the Euro Cup 2021. This was a successful tournament for Wales so far, and they have qualified for the Round of 16 from the 2nd spot. Denmark has started this tournament badly, but with a win in the last round, Denmark has climbed the standings to 2nd place, and they have qualified to the next stage.

Wales is a solid team, as we can see from their performances in this tournament so far, and they have scored 3 goals while conceding 2 goals so far. In their last game against Italy, Wales has had only 31% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 1 corner kick, a red card, 2 big chances created, and 75% of the correct passes. Italy didn’t play their best soccer here because they have secured their spot before, but with a goal in the 39th minute, Wales has lost this match 1-0. Wales has had some good chances in this game, and they could have scored a goal, but after conceding a red card, Wales was focused on defense. Losing Ampadu is a huge blow for Wales because they will need every single player if they want to get to the quarterfinals. Ramsey, Moore, and Roberts have each scored 1 goal for Wales. Wales has proved they are not to be underestimated, but this will be a very hard game for them, and they will need to play their best soccer yet.

We all know what happened to Denmark at the start of this tournament, but for them to get through the group stage with only 1 win, and to advance from second place is absolutely amazing. In that decisive game against Russia in the last round, Denmark has had 64% of ball possession, 10 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and a solid 82% of the correct passes. Everything that didn’t go Denmark’s way in the first two games, came back to them in this match. Denmark was dominant, they were defending well, and they have won this match 1-4. Poulsen is the leading goalscorer for Denmark with 2 goals so far, while Damsgaard, Christiansen, and Maehle added 1 goal each. Hojbjerg has added 3 assists. The only player missing for Denmark is Eriksen. Denmark has shown all of its talents in that game against Russia, but as I’ve mentioned earlier, Wales is not to be underestimated. Denmark is now carried by their win against Russia, they are a solid team, and they will be extremely hard to beat.

Denmark has lost the home-field advantage, and that will certainly have some impact on this game, but with Wales losing Ampadu, I see Denmark winning this match. Sure, Wales has Bale and Ramsey, but Denmark is the deeper and better team in this matchup, and I see them winning this match.
