Czech Republic – Denmark

Czech Republic – Denmark

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.

Portugal – Germany

Portugal against Germany is the big derby of the second round of Euro 2020’s group stage. These two European giants will face each other on Saturday at the Allianz Arena in Munich. Let’s preview it in these paragraphs that are about to follow.

Portugal started their Euro 2020 campaign with a bang when they rocked a 3-0 win against Hungary in their opening game. Their performance left the fans a bit worried, though – Selecao scored their three goals in the last seven minutes of the match. We saw some flaws in Portugal’s game, mainly in terms of creativity and creating danger. The head coach Fernando Santos has some work to do now.

What Portugal will need against the Mannschaft is more efficiency from their most creative players – Bruno Fernandes and Bernardo Silva. These two playmakers must organise Selecao’s game, but they were poor against the Magyars.

Germany are not in a position to hold back because they lost their opening game against France. The veteran center-back Mats Hummels had the bad luck to score himself an own goal in the first half. We can’t say that Germany played badly, but they didn’t do enough to penetrate the French defense.

Joachim Low could make some changes in order to refresh his team for the next game. Germany started without a pure striker against France, so now Timo Werner could enter the scene. At the same time the speed demon Leroy Sane could be used to cause some havoc in the opponent’s defense. Leon Goretzka could return in team as well, but only if he’s fit to play.

That’s our preview for the Euro 2020 fixture between Portugal and Germany in the Bavarian capital. These two sides are in a very different position in this group, so let’s see how they are going to do. One thing is for sure – Germany can’t allow themselves to lose a second consecutive match.
