Czech Republic vs Denmark: Euros preview

The Danes have overcome near-tragedy, with Christian Eriksen’s on-pitch collapse, to sail into the last eight with back-to-back four-goal hauls.

Czech Republic saw off Netherlands 2-0 at the weekend and have momentum of their own. The winner of the tie will meet England or Ukraine in the semi-finals.

Czech Republic vs Denmark team news

Czech Republic have left-back Jan Boril back after suspension, but he is not guaranteed a starting spot as deputy Pavel Kaderabek performed so well against Netherlands.

The same can be said for captain Vladimir Darida and Jakub Jankto; on the bench on Sunday as Antonin Barak and Petr Sevcik impressed.

Denmark head coach Kasper Hjulmand has not been afraid to shake up his team, and it’s worked with his players full of momentum after an unthinkable start.

Yussuf Poulsen should come back in, joining Mikkel Damsgaard up front, while Daniel Wass is pushing for a start. Captain Simon Kjaer is expected to be fit after shaking off a thigh injury.

Czech Republic vs Denmark prediction

Two entertaining teams punching, arguably, above their weight but both worthy semi-finalists should they get there. This could, though, prove a cagey affair with few chances, meaning the onus will lie on the likes of Patrick Schick, Yussef Poulsen and Kasper Dolberg.

Czech Republic are a far sterner test for Denmark than both Russia and Wales. The Danes will have a tough time breaking them down. I’m backing the Czechs to edge this in normal time.
