Denmark Vs Belgium Prediction And Odds

A stricken Denmark will look to get their Euro 2020 campaign back on track as they welcome Belgium to the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen on Thursday evening.

Belgium stormed to victory in their opening game against Russia and a similar performance will, essentially, confirm their place in the last 16.

As for Denmark, their first match defeat to Finland was overshadowed by the awful events that saw Christian Eriksen suffer a cardiac arrest.

Belgium will kick the ball into touch in the tenth minute during this evening's game - allowing them to applaud Eriksen as he continues to recover in hospital.

In truly harrowing scenes, thousands within the ground were left silenced as teammates, relatives, friends and fans looked on in horror as the Inter Milan midfielder suddenly collapsed.

After a delay of almost two hours, the game restarted and Denmark, who were understandably flat, went on to lose 1-0 through Joel Pohjanpalo's strike.

Understandably, Finland's celebrations were muted, especially following the distressing scenes during the opening 45 minutes in Copenhagen.

Denmark will now look to pick themselves up and play their hearts out for Eriksen - but they face stern opposition, especially in Romelu Lukaku.

The 28-year-old, widely regarded as one of the best strikers in the world, has been one for many to tip as the player to win the Golden Boot after bagging a brace against Russia.

Half-Time/Full-Time: Belgium/Belgium (2/1)

Unfortunately for Denmark, this could very well be a 90-minute rout, with Belgium likely to go for the jugular from the first to last whistle.

Without even breaking a sweat, Belgium dominated Russia in a 3-0 triumph - and there's no reason as to why they can't replicate that same performance.

The Red Devils are the number one ranked side in the world, and are third favourites to win the European Championship - and it comes as no surprise, too.

Roberto Martinez boasts some of the most talented players on the planet - especially in Romelu Lukaku, a striker at the very top of his game at the moment.

Over 2.5 goals: Belgium and over 2.5 goals in match (5/2)

Goals should be on the agenda for Belgium again this evening - and we're backing them to win plus a shower of goals, too.

Since a 2-1 defeat by England in the Nations League back in October, the Red Devils have netted 27 goals in just ten games. Pretty impressive, right?

On that basis, Belgium to win and over 2.5 goals in the match sounds like a solid bet, doesn't it?

Not convinced? Check out their highlights against Russia - goals come easy to the Belgians.

To score a brace: Romelu Lukaku (8/1)

Romelu Lukaku found the back of the net twice against Russia - so who's to say that he can't do that again against the Danes?

Belgium's success in recent years has been spearheaded by the Inter Milan talisman.

Romelu Lukaku has scored 62 goals inside 94 games for Belgium

The 28-year-old enjoyed, arguably, his best-ever season at club level in 2020-21 by helping Inter end Juventus's dominance in the Serie A.

Scoring 30 goals in 44 games across all competitions for Inter, Lukaku's record at the international level is also outstanding - 62 goals from 94 caps.

Of course, Denmark will be without the recovering Christian Eriksen - but other than that, they have a fully-fit squad to choose from.

Brentford's Mathias Jensen could come into the heart of midfield, while Kasper Dolberg could play a part alongside Martin Braithwaite and Yussuf Poulsen in the front three.

Roberto Martinez will be delighted that Romelu Lukaku is fully fit to play, especially after his emphatic brace against Russia last time out.

Midfield maestro Kevin De Bruyne should return at some stage after recovering from fractures to his nose and left eye socket.

For defender Timothy Castagne, his campaign is over after a clash of heads in the victory over Russia.

Meanwhile, Jan Vertonghen is unlikely to make the starting line-up after taking a knock to an ankle.
