Wales vs Denmark UEFA EURO 2020 Betting Preview and Comprehensive Analysis

by Jack CohenJune 24, 2021

Wales vs Denmark kick-off is at 12:00 pm EST on Saturday, June 26 for the Euro 2020 Round of 16 in the Johan Cruijff Arena in the Netherlands. Denmark had a dramatic finish to their group stage and qualified for the second round via coming in second place with a few lucky results from their other competitors. Wales also qualified after finishing second in Group A to Italy with a win, a draw, and a loss.

Without Eriksen and in the wake of a traumatic game, Denmark are full of vigor. They won only one game in the group stage and lost two, but somehow managed to slip through. Could this be the storybook Euro campaign for them?

Wales’ Ways to Win

This Welsh team has been a pleasant surprise this tournament, but they are the underdogs coming into Wales vs Denmark ro16 clash. Like almost every team in this tournament, they struggled to click at the beginning and find any rhythm. It seemed like they were relying on Gareth Bale to make magic happen and pull goals out of thin air, but now they seem to be working the ball as a unit and pushing on with cohesion.

Wales vs Denmark Picks Bale and Ramsey Together

Aaron Ramsey has been phenomenal although his consistency in front of the net could use some work. Quite frankly, so could all of Wales. They need to finish a lot better. Schmeichel is a fantastic keeper, and they will have opportunities, but they need to have a little more composure.

Defensively, Denmark really isn’t much to worry about. The game against Russia felt more like a fluke than them hitting their stride, but it should definitely be considered.

Hojberg does a fantastic job controlling the tempo, so Aaron Ramsey should really be on his horse to make sure he is constantly putting pressure in the defensive midfield. Don’t let Denmark dictate the tempo. Wales was impressive against Italy in their ability to really match up pound for pound. They need to treat Denmark the way they treated Italy.

Denmark’s Ways to Win

Moving on with our Wales vs Denmark betting scheme, let’s focus on the Scandinavians! What Denmark needs to understand is that the range of skill on the Welsh team is considerable. They have very strong points and very weak points. Bale and Aaron Ramsey are deadly on the attack. Ben Davies is decent as well as Ampadu and Rodon, but Gunter leaves a bit to be desired. Denmark needs to pinpoint Wales’ weaknesses and attack them hard.

Be very wary of the counterattack and when Bale picks up his head. Bale has loved to drop deeper into midfield with this Welsh team and try to pick out passes. The Danish defense needs to be on high alert and not get caught sleeping when Bale has the ball around midfield.

Wales vs Denmark Predictions

This is a tough Danish team that is playing with a lot of conviction right now. They had a terrifying first match, but have fought back and shown tremendous amounts of grit and tenacity.

They will fight to the death to keep their tournament alive. Wales, on the other hand, haven’t been that dicey team that shows they want to win it all. I think they are the better side here, and they have more talent, but Denmark is going to show why the team who wants it more usually wins. It’s a tight one, but it’s Denmark’s.

Prediction: Denmark 2 – 1 Wales
