Our prediction for this Euro 2024 match:
Denmark will look to build on back-to-back wins over San Marino and Finland when they take on Kazakhstan in Group H on Saturday afternoon. The Danes showcased their worth in a hard-fought 1-0 win over Finland and it is no wonder the bookies see them as favourites to beat the Kazakhs on home soil. Fit-again Rasmus Hojlund is pushing for a start as well as towering AC Milan defender Simon Kjaer.
The Kazakhs, on the other hand, have been performing above expectations in the Euro 2024 qualifiers, but they will have a mountain to climb against Denmark, who are a real force to be reckoned with at home. Both Maksim Samorodov are banned for the match, but there are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team ahead of the trip to Copenhagen. Earlier in the process Kazakhstan defeated Denmark 3-2, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
