Denmark vs England prediction, odds & betting tips – 20/06/2024

England got off to a winning start at Euro 2024 though the overall performance from Gareth Southgate's side was underwhelming to say the least but securing all three points was the main objective.

Denmark provide the opposition on Thursday evening and Kasper Hjulmand looked bright early on against Slovenia but dropped off in the second half and were punished as a result, with the game ending in a 1-1 draw.

The Danes will be looking to avoid defeat against England and the recent history between the two nations has produced plenty of tight and tense matches, so Thursday's class should follow suit.

Denmark preview: Should have beaten Slovenia

Denmark took the lead in the 17th minute against Slovenia when Christian Eriksen controlled the ball well in the box and smartly finished into the bottom corner.

Kasper Hjulmand's side should have scored again but instead, they allowed Slovenia back into the game and in the 77th minute, the underdogs equalised and the game ended in a draw.

What should have been three points on the board is now only two for Denmark heading into the England game, a game they now really can't afford to lose.

Predicted lineup: Schmeichel (GK), Vestergaard, Christensen, Andersen, Bah, Kristiansen, Eriksen, Højbjerg, Hjulmand, Wind & Højlund

England preview: Won despite a poor performance

Gareth Southgate's side secured all three points on matchday one against Serbia but the overall performance from his side flattered to deceive.

Jude Bellingham's 13th-minute opener proved to be enough for the favourites to win the game but after the goal, England seemed to sit back on their lead and invited Serbian pressure which could have been costly had it not been for a Jordan Pickford save and captain Harry Kane heading away a goal-bound effort in the second half.

If England put in another lacklustre effort against Denmark then there is every chance of Thursday's clash ending in a draw but that wouldn't be the worst result for Southgate's men who would have four points on the board and a game against Slovenia left to play.

Predicted lineup: Pickford (GK), Walker, Trippier, Stones, Guéhi, Alexander-Arnold, Rice, Bellingham, Kane, Foden & Saka

Player to watch – Jude Bellingham

Jude Bellingham scored his fourth England goal on his 30th appearance, and what an important goal it turned out to be.

The Real Madrid star's 13th-minute close-range header eventually won the game against Serbia and got England off to a perfect start.

Bellingham has been in great form in front of goal all season long and the way he arrived in the penalty area to score against Serbia suggests that he might score a few goals for England in Germany this summer.

Scored the winner against Serbia

In what we are expecting to be another tight and tense game between Denmark and England, we're backing Bellingham to do the business once again.
