class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>Having demolished Russia 4-1 only a few days ago, Goal is backing Hjulmand's men to reach the quarter-finals of Euro 2020 by beating the Dragons
The first Euro 2020 last-16 match takes place on Saturday evening when Wales and Denmark do battle at the Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam.
Both nations finished second in their respective group and will each fancy their chances of reaching the quarter-finals.
Wales vs Denmark Latest Odds
Wales went all the way to the semi-finals at Euro 2016 but are 4/1 (5.0) with Betfair Sportsbook to go some way to replicating that run by winning this match inside 90 minutes, or 21/10 (3.10) to qualify by any means.
Denmark last won a European Championship knockout game back in 1992 when they won the tournament but Betfair make them 17/20 (1.85) to be victorious here and 4/11 (1.36) to qualify.
The draw, which would lead to extra time and potentially penalties, is available at 9/4 (3.25).
Wales vs Denmark Team News
Ethan Ampadu saw red against Italy and is suspended for this last-16 match, which means Rob Page could revert to a back four or bring Chris Mepham back in after the Bournemouth man was an unused substitute against the Azzurri.
Christian Eriksen remains out for Denmark, who played the same starting XI in each of their last two Group B games.
Wales vs Denmark Preview
After losing their opening game of Euro 2020 to minnows Finland in a match which was overshadowed by star playmaker Eriksen suffering a cardiac arrest on the pitch, Denmark have shown remarkable mental fortitude to get to this point.
The 4-1 victory over Russia just a few days ago was one of the finest performances by any country in this tournament and that should give them plenty of confidence against a Wales team which has conceded 16 shots on target already – the fourth most in Euro 2020.
In contrast, Kasper Hjulmand’s men boast the most shots on target with 21 to their name, recording at least five in each Group A match, and facing only eight in those fixtures.
Wales vs Denmark Tips and Predictions
Playing admirably following the devastating events of only two weeks ago, the 17/20 (1.85) price from Betfair Sportsbook on Denmark extending their Euro 2020 campaign for at least a few more days offers strong value in Amsterdam.
