Wales vs Denmark – Euro 2020 Betting Tips

The Johan Cruijff Arena, Amsterdam in the Netherlands is all set to host the first match of the knockouts in this year’s EURO. Wales and Denmark face each other on the 26th of June 2021 Saturday at 21:30 IST. Denmark showcased all their class in the last game while Wales fought it out against Italy. This match is sure to bring out high-octane action.

Wales Form and Team News

Wales in the last game lost against a rampaging Italy side by a goal to nil, they were able to hold Italy choking them for goals which could have been a lot more considering the attack the Italians fired. Wales came back with a statement in the second game against Turkey winning it 2-0 taking their points tally to 4 points which was enough for them to qualify into the knockouts. Wales in the first game against Switzerland had to find an equalizer in the final third of the match to get the one point. They are coming into this year’s EURO with a second-place finish in the qualification rounds. Wales are now in their second straight knockout stages in the EURO’s, they went on to lose to eventual winner Portugal in the last Euro in the semifinals. Wales can be a threatening outfit given they produce the type of football the Wales players play in club football.

Coach Robert Page will need to regroup the squad quickly after the Italian debacle last time and infill the confidence in the players in trying to replicate last Euro’s performance and better it off this time. Captain Bale produced a five-star performance in the second match and was a delight to the eye while Ramsey, Morell and Connor Roberts were able to find the back of the net by virtue of Bale’s assist on two occasions as well. Daniel James along with Danny Ward were also a treat to watch along with Mepham and Ben Davies in Defence. 

Denmark Form and Team News

Denmark are relieving the 1992 fairytale all over again after they qualified for the knockouts beating Russia. They won the last game by a thumping four to one goal margin and finished as the second-best team to only Belgium in the group. Denmark against the Belgians in the second game were leading for quite a while until the arrival of Kevin De Bruyne who completely turned around the complexion of the game and in turn, won it for them. Denmark showed remarkable spirit during the first game even during times of turmoil. They stayed as a team and showed the heart to come back after the unfortunate incident to still have an upper hand in the game even though losing it in the end. Denmark can take heart from the fact that they created enough chances to make inroads while a finish is all that would’ve helped, they corrected this in the later games and have now made it into the next round.

Kasper Hjulmand is the coach of the Denmark national football team and has been quite magnificent with his antics, the strategies and decisions he is making all reflecting on a good on-field performance from the team. The attack line needs to be clinical while finishing as they did in the last match. The midfield and defence are doing their job quite decently and just the ability to get the ball into the net is all that Denmark needs to win games. Christian Erikson is likely to miss out owing to the unfortunate incident in the first game.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Denmark have shown remarkable fighting spirit through all league games and that being the only reason they have qualified. They now have all the momentum going into this game and look favorites to topple Wales. The Danes have a better head to head record as well which gives them the edge going into this game. Wales can still cause damage if they come out as they did against the Turks. 

Tip 1: Denmark to Win

Denmark have shown what it takes to be a team in tough conditions, even when they did not win the first two group games, they had shown what they are capable of in several passages of play. They against the mighty Belgians went on to even score the opening goal and keep the lead for a long time until a lapse in defense at the end to let the game slip away, they are the only team to stage a fight against Belgium in the recent past which shows the capability of the Danes in big team games. They proved this right in the last game when they thrashed the Russians at home to romp into qualification. Wales on the other hand barring the Turkey game have been mostly patchy and seems to be dependant on Bale more which is not often a good sign, Denmark also has a good head to head record winning both of the last two head to head games as well. So it’s quite likely that Denmark might as well end up on the winning side. The odds for the same according to the Casumo Sportsbook is 1.83.

Tip 2: Denmark to score first and win

Denmark in the last ten matches across competitions like the Euro, the Nations League, the Intl Friendlies, and the World Cup qualifiers have managed to score first and eventually win the game in six games of the ten matches played. While playing as the away team like in this case, have three of the last four games where the above has been satisfied. While the two teams have met in head to head matches across competitions, in the last four games, Denmark have managed to score first and win in three matches of those. Incidentally, both of the last two matches between Denmark and Wales have also had Denmark scoring first and winning. So in all likelihood, the Danes are expected to score first in this game and also eventually go on to win as well going by the above records. The odds for Denmark to score first and win according to the Casumo Sportsbook is 1.91.


Denmark are in a way repeating their 1992 Euro heroics where they qualified in similar circumstances and went on to win the title while Wales would be hoping to repeat their 2016 antics this time. Both teams will fight it out to the highest potential which could make up for an intriguing watch. Summarising on a couple of bets from above:

  1. Denmark to win @1.83
  2. Denmark to score first and win @ 1.91
