Denmark vs England

, KO: 17:00 Jun 20, 2024, Frankfurt Arena

ENGLAND will be aiming to build on their opening win as they battle Denmark in their second Group C fixture at Euro 2024. The Danes have the quality to make things difficult but the Three Lions have a fine record in this fixture and should claim the upper hand on Thursday.

Denmark head into Thursday’s clash seeking their first win in the tournament after being held to a 1-1 draw by Slovenia in their opening fixture. They made a fast start and struck early through Christian Eriksen but were pegged back in the second half.

The Danes were semi-finalists in the last edition and will be targeting a similar run this time around. Kasper Hjulmand’s men are unbeaten in their last five matches across all competitions but are without a clean sheet in the last three in that run.

England were victorious in their opening fixture as they triumphed 1-0 over Serbia thanks to Jude Bellingham's early effort. While it was a decent win to start, manager Gareth Southgate will feel there is still plenty of room to play better.

The Three Lions are considered one of the favourites to win this year’s competition and will be keen to make a statement. One of the positives from their opening fixture was their defensive display and they have now kept clean sheets in every single group stage fixture, stretching back to Euro 2020.

How the bookies view it: England huge favourites

England are overwhelmingly fancied by the bookies and are priced at 4/6 by Betfred to claim the win. A victory for Denmark is priced at 9/2 while a draw is set at odds of 11/4.

Head to head: England in front

England have a 15-4 advantage with five draws from 24 previous matches against Denmark. Both teams met in the semi-final of Euro 2020 with the Three Lions claiming a 2-1 victory after extra-time.

Last five H2H duels:

  • 07/07/2021 (EURO) – England 2-1 (a.e.t) Denmark
  • 14/10/2020 (UEFA Nations League) – England 0-1 Denmark
  • 08/09/2020 (UEFA Nations League) – Denmark 0-0 England
  • 05/03/2014 (International Friendly) – England 1-0 Denmark
  • 09/02/2011 (International Friendly) – Denmark 1-2 England

Players to watch: Watertight England defence

England set out to keep things tight at the back in the second half against Serbia and will be targeting something similar on Thursday. Marc Guehi and John Stones appear to have an understanding at centre-back and can lead the Three Lions to another clean sheet at evens with Betfred.

At the other end of the pitch, Jude Bellingham appears to have perfected the late arrivals into the box, which could be a weapon for England. The striker could be backed to find the net once again at 13/5 with Betfred.

Probable line-ups

Denmark are likely to ring in the changes, with Joakim Maehle set to be handed a start after coming off the bench last time out. Thomas Delaney could also be given a run-out in midfield following a second half appearance against Slovenia.

Conor Gallagher is likely to start in midfield in place of Trent Alexander-Arnold while the likes of Harry Kane and Jude Bellingham should retain their place in the team.

Denmark: Schmeichel, Anderson, Christensen, Vestergaard, Bah, Delaney, Hojbjerg, Maehle, Eriksen, Wind, Hojlund
England: Pickford, Walker, Stones, Guehi, Trippier, Rice, Gallagher, Saka, Bellingham, Foden, Kane

Anything else catch the eye?

Having won to nil in their opening fixture, England could be set for a similar outcome on Thursday at 7/5 by Betfred. Given the quality in their attack, the Three Lions could be backed to score in both halves at 9/5 with Betfred.

With England expected to have the upper hand on Thursday, they could be backed in the -1 handicap market at 15/8 with Betfred.
