WALES have continued their Euros love affair by blazing a trail to the last 16 but now must take on a Denmark side riding their own wave of emotion.

The Danes have previous when it comes to fairytales at this tournament, having lifted the trophy in 1992 after only being drafted in at the last minute as replacements for war-torn Yugoslavia.

But it would surpass anything in even Hans Christian Andersen's imagination if they went all the way at this summer's Euros for stricken skipper Christian Eriksen.

Watching their talisman suffer a heart attack on the pitch in their group opener against Finland left Kasper Hjulmand's squad devastated and it was no surprise they lost 1-0 when the game was shamefully restarted just a few hours later.

Another loss to Belgium looked to have ended Denmark's Euro hopes but a thrilling 4-1 win over Russia in the final game saw them claim second place in the group on goal difference.

They will now fancy their chances of getting past Wales to give Eriksen another boost in his recovery but Gareth Bale and Co will have other ideas.

I fancied the Welsh to make an early exit from a tough group but an epic 2-0 win over Turkey booked their place in the last 16 after grinding out a draw with the Swiss.

And although Rob Page's men lost 1-0 in Italy, they showed enough spirit to suggest they can make an impact once more in the knockout stages after a stunning surge to the semis at Euro 2016.

How the bookies view it

After their impressive win over Russia, the Danes are odds-on favourites for this one at a best 6/7 with VBet. Wales are as big as 19/4 with Unibet while the stalemate is 23/10 at 888Sport.

Head to head

There hasn't been much between these teams throughout history, with Denmark winning six of the 10 encounters and Wales coming out on top in the other four. But the Danes have held the edge in the most recent clashes, winning 2-0 at home in the 2018 Nations League then edging a 2-1 victory in Cardiff (below).

Players to watch

Danish wonderkid Mikkel Damsgaard has stepped up superbly in Eriksen's absence, providing the creative spark for his side. The Sampdoria forwards scored a stunning 25-yarder against Russia and is 10/3 with Paddy Power for anytime scorer. McBookie also price him at a tempting 4/1 for an assist.

Aaron Ramsey has been back to his best for Wales and his late runs from midfield have provided a huge threat. The Juventus star is 7/1 with Unibet for anytime scorer which looks overpriced.

Anything else catch the eye?

Denmark conceded in all of their group games while Wales have looked a threat so I fancy both teams to score at a best 27/20 with SportNation.

McBookie are offering 13/10 on Wales winning over 3.5 corners and that looks good value as the bet came up in two of their group games.

For a long-odds option, McBookie price Kieffer Moore at 10/1 to score a header and the Cardiff hitman could get some joy in the air if Gareth Bale can pick him out. Moore is also 5/1 at Bet365 to be carded and that stands a chance as he likes to put himself about.

    Denmark’s emotions over the eriksen incident poured out in the their last game.
    Can they carry that inspiration over into this game on neutral territory ?.

    I hope not as a Welshman 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿.
    Can’t call this to be honest, though if bale contributes with goals and not just general play we might edge it.

    Can see this going all the way, maybe to penalties then we could have 2 Leicester city keepers in opposition, schmeichel and Danny ward which would be unusual 😳

      Hasn’t started well for Wales. Hopefully they can turn it round in the second half

      Sadly they never looked like scoring. Disappointing end to their campaign. At least the big man caught someone with an elbow again to bring up my card bet
