We are heading to the Olimpiya Stadionu in Baku where the Czech Republic will face Denmark in one of the 1/4-final games from Euro 2020. That’s the moment to give you a preview of this match.
The Czech Republic are making an impressive performance at the European Championship so far. In the 1/8-finals they were underdogs against the Netherlands, but after a terrific display they managed to achieve a stunning 2-0 win over Oranje. Patrick Schick scored his 4th goal in the competition while Tomas Holes opened the score before him. The Czech team gained serious advantage after the Dutch defender Mathhijs de Ligt got sent off just 10 minutes after halftime.
Now the Czech team is dreaming of something similar to their Euro 2004 performance when they reached the 1/2-finals. Maybe you remember that in 1996 they played in the final as well. This team just knows how to perform at the European Championships.
Denmark are one of the most impressive teams at the Euro 2020 lately. In the 1/8-finals the Red Dynamite made a terrific display against Wales and scored four times for an amazing 4-0 win. This was a second consecutive game in which the Danish side scores four goals after their 4-1 win over Russia in the group stage.
The 23-years old striker Kasper Dolberg scored a brace against the Dragons while Joakim Mahle and Martin Braithwaite added goals for the win against Wales, too. Damsgaard, Jensen and Cornelius shined with assists for the win.
That’s our preview for the Euro 2020 1/4-finals game between the Czech Republic and Denmark. These two sides made some impressive performances during the 1/8-finals. Now they are really close to the Top 4 of the competition, but this step won’t be easy.
Czech Republic welcomes England at the Sinobo Stadium in Prague in a match from Group A of the European qualifications. We will offer you a quick look at this fixture, because it’s the two best teams in the group facing each other.
England are perfect in the group so far – four wins achieved from four matches played. Gareth Southgate’s team have scored 19 goals, conceding just 4. It’d be really surprising if England don’t win this group, although if the Czech team beats them, they will get even in terms of points.
In their previous game in the group England hosted Kosovo at the Wembley and it was a pure football spectacle in the English capital. The fans saw 8 goals, which led to a 5-3 win for the Three Lions. Maybe most of them expected an easy game for the English team, but Kosovo proved to be a capable side as well.
Borussia Dortmund’s young star Jadon Sancho scored a brace for the hosts, while Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane also put the ball in the net. Kosovo’s Mergim Vojvoda scored himself an own goal. Of course, Gareth Southgate is probably worried that his boys conceded three goals in London, but maybe they underrestimated their opponents a litle bit.
Czech Republic are second in this group with 9 points won so far. They are just three points behind the leader England, but they also have played a game more. So far the Czech side lost twice in this group – against England and against Kosovo.
In March the Czech team visited England at the Wembley and got crushed with a heavy 0-5 defeat. Now Jaroslav Silhavy’s team will try to avenge this defeat, but it’d be a hard task.
Although England are a clear favourite agianst Czech Republic, we believe that the hosts could offer a good fight to the Three Lions. Maybe we will see a surprise here?
