Our prediction for this Euro 2020 match:
Czech Republic and Denmark square off against each other at Baku Olympic Stadium in the EURO 2020 quarter-finals. Czech Republic did well to shock ten-man Netherlands in the last 16, with Patrik Shick extending his brilliant goalscoring run. The Bayer Leverkusen attacker is going to prove a handful for the Danes, who impressed in a 4-0 triumph over Wales. Midfielder Vladimir Darida is rated doubtful for Saturday’s clash.
The Scandinavians, on the other hand, have been scoring goals for fun of late, with the team netting eight goals in total in the previous two games at the showpiece tournament. Even though Christian Eriksen remains on the sidelines with a heart problem, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Daniel Wass has been tested positive for coronavirus, while Yussuf Poulsen is a major doubt, and the Leipzig attacker will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
Highlighted Player (Patrik Schick):
Patrick Schick is a Czech Republic international who plays for Sampdoria as a striker. Schick was born in Prague on January 24, 1996 and he started his career at the youth team of his home-town club Sparta Prague. The 187-cm-tall attacker, played only four games for the capital club before moving to Bohemians 1905 on loan in 2015.
After ending his loan spell with the Klokani, Patrick Schick moved to Italy, signing a deal with Serie A side Sampdoria for a fee of €4 million. The Czech footballer has been playing for La Samp ever since and you should know that he scored 11 goals in 32 appearances for the club in the 2016/2017 Serie A campaign.
The talented striker, who is very good in the air, scored on his debut for Czech Republic in a 6-0 win over Malta in May 2016. Patrick Schick’s preferred foot is left and his contract with Sampdoria should expire on June 30, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Denmark):
The Denmark national team participated at the World Cup finals on four occasions and they recorded their best result at the 1998 tournament. The Danes made it to the quarter-finals of the 1998 World Cup in France, but Brazil proved to be a big catch for the Nordic side. De Rod-Hvide did remarkably well to win the 1992 European Championship, but they were more than fortunate to qualify for the Euro 1992 finals.
Denmark finished their qualifying campaign in second place in the group, but thanks to Yugoslavia’s exclusion from the competition, the team booked their place at the Euro 1992 finals. Denmark impressed at the tournament in Sweden, with the team outplaying Germany in the title game (2-0).
Brothers Michael and Bryan Laudrup and goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel are regarded as Denmark’s most notable players. It has to be noted that Morten Olsen was in charge of the Danish national team from 2000 to 2015. The Danes play their home games at Telia Parken and the capacity of the venue is 38,065 (all-seater).
