Denmark and Belgium go head to head again as Parken Stadium in Copenhagen is set to stage their UEFA EURO 2020 Group B fixture on Thursday. The match starts at 09:30 pm (IST). The Danes went down 0-1 to debutants Finland in their season opener, which was overshadowed due to a medical emergency involving Christian Eriksen. Denmark’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg failed to beat Lukas Hradecky from 12 yards early on, while a second half goal from Finnish striker Joe Pohjanpalo ensured victory.
On the other hand, Belgium eased past Russia 3-0 in the other opening Group B tie. Romelu Lukaku struck twice (10, 88), before Thomas Meunier’s 34th minute brace gave them a resounding season opener win at the Gazprom Arena. Notably, Meunier became the first substitute to score in the first half of a EURO finals match.
In the last 15 head-to-head encounters between the two sides, the record is exactly even. Both have won six games, lost six and drawn three. However, the hosts will be fighting an uphill battle to claim one of the top two spots in Group B, against a surging Belgium.
