RUSSIA vs DENMARK Match Preview & Analysis

Russia have won one of their two matches at the Euros so far, falling initially to a strong Belgium side before bouncing back and beating Finland.

They sit second currently, but it is a potentially dangerous position to be in with bottom nation Denmark within touching distance themselves.

Russia have been one of the quieter teams at the tournament so far, scoring just once and moving into second place by their victory over debutants Finland. Win here and they guarantee themselves second place, lose and it all depends on other results.

Denmark starting off their tournament in tragic circumstances, following the collapse of midfielder Christian Eriksen, who has now left hospital following successful surgery. They were also beaten by Belgium, leaving them pointless at the bottom of Group B.

They must beat Russia by a two goal margin here to stand a chance of progression to the knockout stage.

Teams Preview

Russia Preview

World Ranking: 38

Best Historical Finish at the Euros: Champions, 1960

Predicted Finish This Year: Round of 16

Reasons to be cheerful:

     In prime position to qualify in second place

     Now have three wins from the last six games in all competitions

Reasons to be fearful:

     Only scored one goal so far

     Denmark will want to end emotional tournament on a high

In a group where Belgium were always likely to lead the way, Russia will be proud of how they have put themselves into a controlling situation over the remainder of Group B.

Just one win has seen them rise into second place, but with Finland entering this competition as debutants, and Denmark suffering a tragedy in the first game, Russia have managed to capitalise.

They will want to score more goals of course, with just the one so far. Indeed, they are a tough team to predict, showing few consistencies between the first match and the second.

If they can secure victory here, and second place in doing so, they’ll feel confident heading into a Round of 16 clash against Wales.

Star Man – Aleksey Miranchuk

Has Russia’s only goal so far and adds decent support to the big Artem Dzyuba up front.

Denmark Preview

World Ranking: 10

Best Historical Finish at the Euros: Winners, 1992

Predicted Finish This Year: Group Stage

Reasons to be cheerful:

     Still have a slim chance of qualification

     Good news about Christian Eriksen could give them a boost

Reasons to be fearful:

     Need to win by two clear goals to finish inside top two

     Have looked a little toothless in attack

The news that has been welcomed around the Danish camp this week is that Christian Eriksen has been released by the hospital treating him following a cardiac arrest in the opening game of their campaign.

Although he is unlikely to ever play football again, his improving health should be a boost to his Denmark teammates who went through a terrible time when it happened.

Nevertheless, Denmark are in a perilous position themselves, needing a significant win over Russia in order to finish in the top two.

It is a slim chance, but many around the footballing world would like to see Denmark remain at the tournament given the sympathy that has been passed on at the events of earlier in the competition.

Star Man – Yussuf Poulsen  

Opened the scoring against Belgium and, although Denmark were unable to hang on, it should give him confidence here.

RUSSIA vs DENMARK Winning Prediction

     Russia will keep things tight

     Denmark have to go for it from the start

     Home support will cheer Denmark on right until the end

The crowd in Copenhagen erupted when Denmark took the lead against Belgium the other day, and they will be hoping for more of the same here.

If they can get another early lead, then the support of the fans could inspire Denmark on to something great.

Russia will be disciplined and try not to lose the match. Any result is possible, but it could finish all square.

Russia 1-1 Denmark
