Group B is one of the closest ones and that makes our Denmark vs Finland betting tips really interesting. During the draw for the 2020 European Championship we already knew three of four teams who would be playing in Group B before a single ball was pulled out of the pot. Those teams were Denmark, Belgium and Russia. That left one spot remaining in the group and only 2 teams could have filled the remaining place. It was between Wales and Finland, with the latter being drawn in the group.
With the group complete, the fixtures were formulated and the opening game In Group B of the 2020 European Championship is between Denmark and Finland. As one of the host cities, Denmark will play all their matches in Copenhagen at the Parken Stadium. The odds for this match have Denmark at 1.50 to win.
This should give the Danes a nice advantage throughout the group stages, especially as they also play Russia at home despite Saint Petersburg also being a host city. However, it will all count for nothing if they do not get off to a good start against a potentially tricky opponent. Will Denmark begin the tournament will a win or can Finland cause an upset?

Denmark failed to qualify for the 2016 European Championship and will therefore be making up for lost time in this tournament. They did manage to qualify for the 2018 World Cup finals and progressed to the Round of 16 before being eliminated by the eventual runners-up, Croatia via a penalty shootout.
I'm very satisfied that we are going to play in Group B with Belgium, Denmark and Russia. And it’s very nice to start the tournament against Denmark, one of the naughty neighbours. - Markku Kanevra after the groups were drawn, UEFA official website
