Denmark have a superior squad to that of Finland. They are also playing all their group matches on home soil which gives the Danes a further advantage. 

  • Denmark have won 9 of their last 11 matches (all competitions).
  • Denmark have won by 2+ goals in 4 of their last 5 matches (all competitions).
  • Denmark have kept 9 clean sheets in their last 12 matches (all competitions).

Head to Head

Denmark have a 40-11 advantage against Finland with 11 draws in 62 matches.

They have met in only two competitive games, both coming in the 1988 European Championship qualifiers with Denmark winning 1-0 in both legs.

Denmark Form

Denmark are in fine form having won nine of their last 11 matches. They are very strong defensively after keeping nine clean sheets in their last 12 matches.

The Red and Whites had a positive UEFA Nations League campaign in 2020, finishing second in Group 2, League A. They won three of their six matches with one draw, losing twice to group winners Belgium.

Kasper Hjulmand’s side won all three of their World Cup qualifiers. They beat Israel 2-0, Moldova 8-0 and Austria 4-0 with Andreas Skov Olsen bagging a brace either side of goals to Joakim Maehle and Pierre-Emile Höjbjerg.

Denmark have played two friendlies to warm up for Euro 2020. They drew 1-1 against Germany before a 2-0 win against Bosnia-Herzegovina with Martin Braithwaite and Andreas Cornelius on target.

Denmark Squad & Team News

Goalkeepers: Kasper Schmeichel, Jonas Lössl, Frederik Rønnow
Defenders: Joachim Andersen, Jannik Vestergaard, Simon Kjaer (captain), Joakim Mæhle, Andreas Christensen, Mathias Jørgensen, Jens Stryger Larsen, Nicolai Boilesen
Midfielders: Robert Skov, Thomas Delaney, Christian Eriksen, Christian Nørgaard, Daniel Wass, Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, Mathias Jensen, Anders Christiansen
Forwards: Martin Braithwaite, Andreas Skov Olsen, Kasper Dolberg, Mikkel Damsgaard, Jonas Wind, Yussuf Poulsen, Andreas Cornelius

Centre back and captain Simon Kjaer has earned 107 caps. He is likely to partner Andreas Christensen in central defence.

Attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen is a key player after scoring 36 goals in 108 international appearances.

Hjulmand has a number of attacking options including Martin Braithwaite, Kasper Dolberg, Yussuf Poulsen and Jonas Wind.

Finland Form

Finland have been in poor form in 2021. They have failed to win in their last six matches, lost their last three and not scored in their last two games.

Markku Kanerva’s side drew both World Cup qualifiers in March. They drew 2-2 against Bosnia-Herzegovina with Teemu Pukki scoring both goals and 1-1 in Ukraine with Pukki equalising through an 89th minute penalty.

The Eagle-owls have lost all three friendlies since. Finland lost 3-2 against Switzerland with Joel Pohjanpalo bagging a brace, 2-0 against Sweden and 1-0 against Estonia.

Finland Squad & Team News

Goalkeepers: Heinz Lindner, Pavao Pervan, Alexander Schlager
Defenders: Aleksandar Dragović, David Alaba, Martin Hinteregger, Stefan Lainer, Andreas Ulmer, Christopher Trimmel, Stefan Posch, Gernot Trauner, Philipp Lienhart, Marco Friedl
Midfielders: Stefan Ilsanker, Valentino Lazaro, Alessandro Schöpf, Florian Grillitsch, Louis Schaub, Xaver Schlager, Christoph Baumgartner, Reinhold Ranftl, Yusuf Demir
Forwards: Marcel Sabitzer, Michael Gregoritsch, Karim Onisiwo, Adrian Grbić, Saša Kalajdžić, Ercan Kara

Finland’s squad is not strong, especially in defence. Midfield is led by Rangers’ Glen Kamara.

Teemu Pukki is a key player up front. The Norwich City striker has scored 30 goals in 91 internationals and needs two more to equal Finland’s all-time top scorer Jari Litmanen.


Denmark are in better form than Finland and have a far stronger squad. Playing at home in Copenhagen, this should be a routine victory for the Danes.
