Denmark may find it tough to recover from their dramatic Euro 2020 opener, especially now taking on one of the tournament favourites in Belgium.
The Red Devils beat the Danes by two clear goals at home and away in the Nations League last year and began this competition in cracking form.
We’re happy to accept Evens for Roberto Martinez’s men to prevail again in Copenhagen for our first Denmark vs Belgium prediction.
A Look At Denmark’s Betting Odds
Denmark had been the better team against Finland before Christian Eriksen’s terrifying collapse, with Jonas Wind and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg testing keeper Lukas Hradecky.
However, it was asking an awful lot of them to come back out following a 90-minute delay and a 1-0 defeat was the ultimate outcome.
Joel Pohjanpalo put the Finns ahead in the 58th minute and Tottenham midfielder Hojbjerg later had a penalty saved.
An understandably emotional Kasper Hjulmand commented: “It was a really tough evening, one on which we’ve all been reminded what the most important things in life are.
“I could not be more proud of this team, who take good care of each other. There are players in there who are completely finished emotionally.
“We are trying to pick ourselves up now and get ourselves sorted as much as we can. We have professionals with us. We will talk about it, try to process it and move on together.”
Denmark had previously been on a good run this year, posting four wins and a 1-1 draw with Germany from their five outings.
A Look At Belgium’s Betting Odds
Despite being without Kevin De Bruyne and Axel Witsel and only introducing Eden Hazard late on, Belgium powered to a 3-0 win over Russia in Saint Petersburg.
A brace from Romelu Lukaku either side of Thomas Meunier’s opportunist strike gave the Red Devils victory in a match they dominated throughout.
“The performance is very pleasing,” beamed Martinez. “It is never easy to start a tournament of this magnitude and we looked a team very concentrated for 90 minutes.
“We kept a clean sheet in a very good way and the win will allow us to grow into the tournament.”
Some sloppy work at the back from Russia helped Belgium to get going but that was a convincing display no matter how much you dissect it.
Lukaku also hit a double when the Red Devils beat the Danes 4-2 in Leuven last November while Dries Mertens struck in a 2-0 triumph at this venue two months earlier.
Let’s finish off our Denmark vs Belgium betting tips by taking 9/1 for that pair to both be on the scoresheet here.
DENMARK 0-1 Finland
BELGIUM 3-0 Russia – Lukaku (2), Meunier
Head-to-head: Belgium 4-2 Denmark, Denmark 0-2 Belgium, Belgium 1-3 Denmark
