The Russia vs Denmark favourite is close to call and many predictions for Denmark vs Russia are sitting on the fence. However, the recent record of Russia suggests they could have what it takes to come out on top. Russia finished 6 points below Belgium in their qualifying campaign but well clear of third place Scotland and the only defeats they suffered were against the number one ranked team in the world.
The players were a real team today. They fulfilled what they had to do and got the win. The formation I chose, I think, was right. To break down their defense, we needed to use the wings and we did. The plan worked. - Stanislav Cherchesov after the win over Finland, Reuters
Russia had failed to get out of the group in each of the previous two European Championship tournaments but did reach the semi-final in 2008. They were extremely disappointing in 2016 but showed plenty of improvement at the 2018 World Cup and Russia will be hoping to carry over from that competition to progress to the knockout stages in the 2020 European Championship.
The betting odds for Russia vs Denmark have the former as the team that is slightly less likely to win. However, we have to remember that they have three points more than Denmark and even a draw will give them a place in the Round of 16. Read on as we continue our Denmark vs Russia match preview with a closer look at the Danes. Also, don't forget about the second game in this group and follow the latest betting tips and predictions ahead of the Finland vs Belgium match available in the related article.
2. Denmark vs Russia Favourites
Denmark finished second in their European Championship qualifying group, 1 point behind group winners Switzerland and 3 points clear of third placed Republic of Ireland. It was not a great qualifying campaign by the Danes and they won only 4 of their 8 fixtures. However, they proved difficult to beat and Denmark were undefeated in the group, the only team to go the entire campaign in Group D without losing.
That suggests Denmark do not always have enough to always win matches but know what it takes to make life difficult for the opposition. This is the case in this year's tournament - although they have scored zero points so far, they have played very well. Therefore, they must be considered a Denmark vs Russia contender to at least gain a point from this match, especially that without a good result they will be eliminated from the tournament. The Russia vs Denmark odds are very tempting for the game to end level and for the latter to take maximum points.
When making a Russia vs Denmark prediction, it is important to look back at previous tournaments and the Danes do not have a good recent history of progressing in the competition. Only once in the last four times they have qualified for the European Championship have Denmark managed to reach the knockout stages of the competition.

3. Other Bets for Denmark vs Russia
12 of the 23 goals scored by Denmark in qualifying for this tournament came in two games against Gibraltar. Russia scored 23 of their 33 goals in qualifying in matches against San Marino, Cyprus, and Kazakhstan. That suggests the two teams have no problem scoring goals against the lower ranked nations but do not have as much success when playing teams of a similar standard.
Therefore, it would not come as a surprise to see this game end with under 2.5 goals and you can get nice odds for that to happen. It is worth noting this game will be played at the Parken Stadium, Copenhagen and that could hand the Danes an advantage. For those looking at the correct score market, a 1-0 Danish win is available at good odds at every bookie.
