Match Preview

The Euro 2020 round of 16 will begin with a duel of two dark horse teams, Wales vs Denmark. This match will be held at the Johan Cruijff Arena (Amsterdam), Saturday (26/6/2021) night IST

Wales qualified for the last 16 after finishing second in Group A, while Denmark secured the runners-up position in Group B thanks to Team Dynamite's explosion in the final, winning 4-1 over Russia.

Appearing in the knockout phase, Wales certainly hopes to repeat their success in the previous edition, when they were able to penetrate the semifinals before being eliminated by Portugal who finally won in 2016.

The Dragon (Welsh Nickname), departed for Amsterdam with a record just twice in their previous 16 international matches (W10, D4).

In fact, this is the first meeting between the two nations in a major tournament and extra time may not be necessary given that none of the previous ten clashes have ended in a draw.

Seven of those ended by one goal difference (Wales: W4, L6).

Kasper Hjulmand's Denmark qualified for the knockout stages for the first time since 2004 thanks to an impressive 4-1 win over Russia on the final matchday of Group B.

The 1992 European Cup winners managed to make up for the loss of mainstay Christian Eriksen to become the only team in European Cup history to qualify from the group stage despite losing their first two matches.

Just so you know – excluding their '92 win – Denmark has won just one knockout stage match in European Cup history (W1, L6).

Denmark also seems to be in danger if this match goes to a penalty shootout. Especially because without Eriksen.

As the main penalty taker in his country, the Inter Milan midfielder's absence was felt when Tottenham's Pierre-Emile Højbjerg missed a penalty in the first group game against Finland.

Another important fact for you to know, Denmark needs one more goal to equal the number of goals they scored when they won Euro 1992 (6 goals), where they also failed to win both opening matches (D1, L1).
