Coming off a massive 1-1 draw against England, one of the tournament favorites, and a convincing win over Slovenia, Denmark continues to build on its hot winning streak that began after the World Cup.

Having lost only twice in over 15 matches, the Danes have become a team that no one wants to face. This is especially true considering their young striker, 22-year-old Rasmus Højlund (7 goals in 16 Denmark appearances), who looks poised for a big game against a Serbian defense that appears weaker than those they've faced in the last two matches. 

Meanwhile, Serbia seeks a change in fortune after a tough loss to England and a disappointing draw against Slovenia, a match they were expected to win comfortably. Facing a red-hot Danish team, Serbia will be desperate to erase the memory of their recent struggles, which have seen them win only twice in their last six matches.

Aleksandar Mitrović will be their focal point. His impressive record of 15 combined goals in Euro Cup qualifiers over the past four years and 28 goals for Al-Hilal this season demonstrates his continued hunger for goals.

Denmark Preview

Heading into their final group stage game in top form, Denmark will need their key players to continue performing at both ends of the pitch. Defensively, Joachim Andersen has been a revelation, leading the backline and shutting down threats like Jude Bellingham and Phil Foden in the draw against England. 

His leadership has been crucial. Superstar goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, boasting a 79% save percentage and conceding only 0.92 goals per game for RSC Anderlecht last year, remains at his peak. This solidity allows the defense, which includes Jannik Vestergaard, to play with less pressure.

On the offensive end, 21-year-old Rasmus Højlund, who notched 7 goals and an assist in the European Cup qualifiers, has continued his development into a big-game player. He bagged 5 goals in 6 Champions League matches for Manchester United and played a key role in their FA Cup victory. 

Højlund and Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, who contributed 2 goals and an assist in the qualifiers, have formed a formidable attacking duo that Denmark can rely on not just now, but for the future as well. Jonas Wind provides another attacking option. 

The 25-year-old has impressed with 11 goals and 7 assists for VfL Wolfsburg this year, adding to his 3 goals and 4 assists in 10 qualifying matches for Denmark. If these attackers can continue their top-quality form alongside the strong defense, Denmark could become a serious dark horse contender for the trophy.

Denmark Probable Starting XI: Kasper Schmeichel(Goalkeeper), Joachim Andersen, Jannik Vestergaard, Andreas Christensen, Joakim Maehle(Defenders), Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Christian Eriksen, Morten Hjulmand, Victor Kristiansen (Midfielders), Rasmus Hojlund, Jonas Wind(Forwards)

Serbia Preview

The Serbian squad faces a must-win match after a disappointing start to their European Cup campaign with a loss and a draw. They'll need a top-class effort from their leader, Aleksandar Mitrović (58 goals in 93 caps), who has yet to find the net in this competition despite scoring twice in the 2022 World Cup and 5 goals in the qualifiers. Alongside him, Sergej Milinković-Savić (11 goals and 10 assists for Al-Hilal) forms a potentially nightmarish duo for opposing defenses.

The impressive return of captain Dušan Tadić (10 goals and 14 assists for Fenerbahçe) is also a major boost. He'll be looking to get on the scoresheet and add to his 23 international goals. Tadic's leadership has been instrumental in the development of 27-year-old Saša Lukić, who provided two assists in the qualifying games. He also helped shape Luka Jović (6 goals for Inter Milan, including a crucial equalizer against Slovenia) into a top-notch finisher.

Dusan Vlahović, a young talent with 16 goals and 4 assists for Juventus this season, adds further firepower to the Serbian attack. Defensively, veteran Nikola Milenković (55 caps for Serbia) will lead the backline as they strive to deliver Serbia's first appearance in the Round of 16.

Serbia Probable Starting XI: Predrag Rajkovic (Goalkeeper); Strahinja Pavlovic, Nikola Milenkovic, Milos Veljkovic, Andrija Zivkovic (Defenders); Sasa Lukic, Ivan Ilic, Filip Mladenovic (Midfielders); Dusan Tadic, Aleksandar Mitrovic, Dusan Vlahovic (Forwards)

It's a do-or-die match for both teams. The winner will officially book their place in next Saturday's round of 16. Serbia has shown a strong defense, conceding only 2 goals in 2 games. However, Denmark's fast-paced attack, led by the speedy Rasmus Højlund, could pose problems for their skilled but potentially slower backline.

Adding to the challenge, veterans Christian Eriksen and Pierre-Emile Højbjerg have displayed exceptional passing skills throughout the tournament. These "assist machines" will likely continue feeding the ball to the dangerous new striker, Jonas Wind.  

Our prediction is Denmark to win the game
