THE LOWDOWN

CZECH REPUBLIC

  • The Czech Republic caused arguably the biggest shock of the round of 16 after knocking out Netherlands, taking full advantage of the Dutch being reduced to ten-men during the second half to emerge 2-0 winners.
  • The contest saw in-form striker Patrick Schick net his fourth goal of the tournament after scoring the second of Czech Republic’s two goals, now leaving him just one behind current top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo.
  • Full-back Jan Boril returns from suspension for this quarter-final, but head coach Jaroslav Silhavy will surely be tempted to stick with his replacement Pavel Kaderabek after helping his side win and keep a clean sheet against Netherlands, whilst captain Vladimir Darida who missed the round of 16 victory is a doubt through injury, but has resumed training with the squad.

DENMARK

  • Denmark racked up four goals for the second successive EURO 2020 fixture after thrashing Wales 4-0 in Amsterdam to book their place in the quarter-finals with three of their goals once again coming in the second half.
  • Forward Kasper Dolberg put in an excellent performance for his side, scoring twice whilst the defence recorded their first clean sheet of the tournament so far in what was an excellent all-round performance.
  • After being substituted off against Wales, Denmark will be sweating on the fitness of captain Simon Kjaer, although head coach Kasper Hjulmand has stated his expectation that the central defender will be ready for this match.

THE KEY STATS

  • Czech Republic won each of their two previous EURO final tournament matches against Denmark without conceding a goal (W3-0 EURO 2004 QF, W2-0 EURO 2000 GS) – Czech Republic to win to nil
  • Five of the last six international matches between Czech Republic and Denmark have finished level – Match outcome to be decided by a penalty shoot-out
  • Czech Republic’s Patrik Schick has scored a total of five goals in his last five international matches – Patrik Schick to score anytime
  • Denmark have only failed to score in one of their last 15 international matches – Denmark to score
  • Denmark have scored the first goal in 12 of their last 15 international matches – Denmark to score the first goal

THE PREDICTION

Whilst it seems easy for many teams to run out of steam as they enter the knockout stage, Denmark appear simply to be getting better and better by every game. Such a thumping win over Wales was a huge statement, however Czech Republic will also head into this encounter full of confidence, having knocked out a Netherlands side that looked so formidable in the group stage. However, their win wasn’t without some luck as Netherlands spurned a number of glorious chances to take the lead before being reduced to ten-men. Denmark aren’t expected to prove so wasteful and will certainly prioritise keeping their discipline. Whilst this is likely to be a close contest, the momentum of the Danes looks very hard to stop right now and when taking into account their wonderful recent form, they should be backed to win this one.
