Russia will be hoping to book their place in the knockout stages of the UEFA Euro 2020 when they take on Denmark in their final Group B clash on Monday.
With the final round of fixtures set to be played out in the group stages of the UEFA Euro 2020, there is still plenty at stake in Group B with the second place still up for grabs. And Russia, who are the current occupants of the position, will be hoping to advance to the knockout stages without any hiccups when they take on Denmark at the Parken Stadium on Monday night.
Russia started the tournament on a poor note, losing to Belgium in their opening fixture. However, Stanislav Cherchesov’s side secured a 1-0 win over Finland last time out thanks to Aleksei Miranchuk’s goal, which has put them in a strong position with regard to qualification for the knockouts. Should the Finns lose to Belgium in the other Group B fixture, Russia will pretty much be guaranteed a spot in the next round.
As for Denmark, the tournament has been shrouded by the unfortunate incident involving Christian Eriksen during their opening game against Finland. Kasper Hjulmand’s side may have lost both their games to the Finns (1-0) and Belgium (2-1) and be sitting at the bottom of the pile, but they deserve credit to have stepped out and given their all after everything that had happened.
Despite not having collected a single point yet, the Danes can still make it through to the knockouts should they defeat Russia and Finland lose heavily to Belgium or third in case the former pick up a win.
