The UEFA Euro 2020 features an intriguing Group B encounter this weekend as Denmark lock horns with Finland at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen on Saturday. Denmark have impressive players in their ranks and hold a slight upper hand going into this game.
Finland face a stern challenge at Euro 2020 this year and will have to play out of their skins to get out of their group. The Scandinavian side slumped to a shocking 1-0 defeat at the hands of Estonia earlier this week and cannot afford a similar debacle in this match.
Denmark, on the other hand, have assembled a formidable squad for Euro 2020 and will look to pull off a few upsets this summer. The Danes eased past Bosnia and Herzegovina in their previous game and will be confident ahead of this fixture.
Denmark vs Finland Head-to-Head
Denmark have an impressive record against Finland and have won 38 matches out of a total of 59 games played between the two teams. Finland have managed only 11 victories against Denmark and will need to be at their best on Saturday.
The previous meeting between the two Scandinavian outfits took place in 2011 and ended in a 2-1 victory for Denmark. Daniel Wass was new to the Denmark national team at the time but will step in as a senior member of the side this weekend.
