The players returned to the pitch in Copenhagen less than two hours after Christian Eriksen’s cardiac arrest, eventually losing 1-0 to Finland to leave their tournament hopes hanging up a thread.
Belgium, the world’s top-ranked nation, can secure their spot in the knockout stage with another win, having brushed Russia aside in the first round. Both Kevin De Bruyne and Axel Witsel could return.

Denmark vs Belgium prediction
It is perfectly understandable to expect Denmark to struggle with focus given the events of the last few days.
I expect Belgium to have too much for their hosts, running out 2-0 winners.
