Wales v Denmark Match Preview & Trends

Can Wales repeat 2016 heroics against the resurgent Danes?

Amsterdam is the setting for this last 16 clash between Wales and Denmark. After impressing in the group stages with a hard-fought draw with Switzerland and an emphatic victory against Turkey before falling to eventual group winners Italy, confidence in the Welsh camp is high. Denmark have turned their tournament around and became the first team to ever qualify for the knockout phase after losing both of their opening two fixtures. By turning tragedy into triumph and demolishing Russia to book their place in the next phase, Denmark have quickly become the neutral’s favorites.

Robert Page will know that without the Welsh supporters in Holland, his side will have to battle the crowd as well as the Danes who will be in front of their fans in the Amsterdam Arena. In Gareth Bale they have a world-class player who captains the side with such pride and passion alongside proven match-winner Arran Ramsey of Juventus, a duo well respected around Europe and a pair that can hurt any side in the competition. 

The Danes have seemingly got over the shock of the Christian Eriksen incident out of their systems now and with the fact he is now in a stable condition, they will be looking to draw inspiration from the ordeal rather than be distracted by it. The way they played against the Russians made everyone take notice and realize that this Denmark side are here to play and are certainly not feeling sorry for themselves. With the winners of this tie set to face the victor of the Netherlands vs the Czech Republic match in the quarter-finals in Baku, it should be a fascinating contest between two quality footballing sides.

Wales covered 295.7km in the group stages and have maintained a passing accuracy of 78% and averaging 40% possession. The Welsh have made 70 passes into the attacking third with 33 of those in key areas. They have completed 11/34 crosses, which left them at 32%. In comparison, Denmark has covered 317.2km in the first three games, maintaining a passing accuracy of 84% and averaged 57% possession. The Danes made 139 passes into the attacking third with 80 of those in key areas. They completed 20/76 crosses, which left them at 26%.
