Denmark v Belgium Match Preview & Trends

Danes look to put their tournament back on track after Eriksen tragedy

Denmark endured the strangest and most unfortunate circumstances in their group opener against Finland. Restarting the game after the illness suffered by talisman Cristian Eriksen no doubt affected the Danish team who were understandably lackluster after the delay with their thoughts elsewhere. There is no way to predict whether having their teammate in hospital will inspire or distract the Danes for the rest of the tournament but what is certain is that they will not have it easy.

Belgium cruised to victory in St. Petersburg, defeating Russia 3-0 without star midfielder Kevin De Bruyne and limited to only a substitute appearance from captain Eden Hazard. Eriksen’s Inter Milan colleague Romelu Lukaku took center stage with two goals and the Danish defense will have their hands full with the ex-Manchester United striker in this fixture. 

Kasper Kjulmand has the unenviable task of trying to pick someone to replace Eriksen in the starting line-up from a distraught squad who will be looking to their manager to lift spirits and take their minds off the ordeal they are going through. Luckily he has experienced players like Kasper Schmeichel and captain Simon Kjaer who were both instrumental in assisting during Eriksen’s collapse. 

Roberto Martinez will be instructing his side, who are ranked number one in the world and are regarded as one of the favorites for the tournament to control what they can control and focus on themselves. If they play to their potential, the star-studded squad could book a place in the next round with one game to spare and the opportunity to utilize their supremely deep in quality squad.

Key trends
