Czech Republic vs Denmark: Line-ups

Czech Republic


Danes’ Form to Continue


The Czechs have previous in this competition, finishing as runners-up in 1996 and also reaching the semi-finals in 2004, but they were eliminated in the group stage of Euro 2016.


Czech Republic, who would take on England or Ukraine in the semi-finals next week if they were to emerge victorious on Saturday, have only lost two of their previous 25 matches with Denmark, although five of the last six fixtures between the two national teams have finished all square.


Denmark lost their second group fixture to Belgium, which left them in a very difficult spot, but a 4-1 success over Russia four days later was enough to finish second in the section on goal difference, with Finland and Russia both exiting the competition despite also claiming three points from three matches.


Hjulmand’s team were in sensational form in the round of 16, though, recording a 4-0 win over Wales in Amsterdam, with Kasper Dolberg scoring twice in what was a superb performance from a team that will certainly believe they are capable of making the final.


The Red and Whites won the European Championship in 1992, but they have not been at this stage of the competition since 2004, having been eliminated in the group stages in 2012 and actually failing to qualify for the finals in both 2008 and 2016.

DPP Verdict

Denmark sneaked their way through the group stages of the competition, but they were seriously impressive against Wales in the round of 16. Czech Republic deserve huge credit for their display against the Netherlands, but the Danes will probably emerge victorious by the narrowest of margins to reach the final four.
