Czech Republic vs Denmark (Saturday, 17:00)
Czech Republic and Denmark will battle it out for a Euro 2020 semi-final berth in Baku on Saturday evening.
The Czechs have defied expectations to reach the quarter-finals of this summer's showpiece, most notably pulling off a huge scalp in the round of 16 when they sent the Netherlands packing.
Denmark, on the other hand, seem to be gaining in strength with every game that they play and they might just be on the path to emulating their shock conquering of the continent 29 years ago.
The bookies odds would suggest that Kasper Hjulmand ‘s crew will seal their passage to the last four on Saturday evening, with a Denmark triumph trading at a general 11/10.
However, I suspect this quarter-final clash could be a bit tighter than the odds suggest so I'm going to swerve the match result market and instead head to Bet 365‘s Bet Builder.
If we combine over zero Denmark goals and over two match cards we will be presented with a backable 4/5 (Bet 365) play.
Denmark have responded admirably in the face of adversity after Christian Eriksen's collapse, with the Danes scoring four goals in back-to-back matches ahead of this last-eight bout at the Baku Olympic Stadium.
What's more, the Red-White's have made the net bulge in 14 of their last 15 matches while the Czech Republic have failed to shutout their opponents in seven of their last nine outings.
With that in mind, coupled with the serious momentum that Denmark are building, I'm more than happy to back the Danes to notch at least once during this dust-up.
In order to boost the Bet Builder price up to 4/5 (Bet 365), I'll complete the combination with over two match cards – something that has landed in each of Denmark's last three Euro 2020 assignments
Indeed, referee Bjorn Kuipers is a middle of the range card issuer but we're now entering the business end of the competition so both teams are bound to right up for this one as they battle it out for a semi-final berth.
It's also worth noting that the above-mentioned combination has clicked in each of Denmark's last three matches and that only adds to the appeal of supporting the same formula on Saturday.
- Over 0 Denmark Goals & Over 2 Match Cards– Bet Builder – 4/5 (Bet 365)
