Denmark vs Serbia Preview

  • Tournament: Euro 2024
  • Date: Tuesday, 25th June
  • Kick-off time: 8:00 PM GMT
  • Venue: Allianz Arena 

The remaining two matches in the Group C of Euro 2024 including Denmark vs Serbia are perhaps going to deliver two of the thrilling matches of the tournament. Both Serbia and Denmark are in contention to qualify for the quarter-finals as the other two teams of the group, England and Slovenia are. Gareth Southgate’s side top the table with four points, while Slovenia and Denmark sit with two draws. Serbia, despite sitting at the bottom, have a chance to book a Knockout spot in Germany. Scroll down below to know about Denmark vs Serbia preview, prediction, line-ups and team news.

Denmark started their Euro 2024 campaign on a strong note against Slovenia, riding a Christian Eriksen strike. But, that goal was canceled out with just 13 minutes remaining on the clock, and Slovenia snatched one point. Against England in the second match, the Danish brigade shared the spoils after playing out a 1-1 draw. Now, their road towards the quarter-finals of Euro 2024 is heavily guarded by Serbia, who are still winless in the tournament. Kasper Hjulmand’s team must prevail over the Serbians to win all three points if they wish to set foot on the next level. 

For Serbia, they can not welcome a draw or a loss anymore, as things stand. Anything less than a win against Denmark will knock them out of the European Championship. Despite losing 0-1, Dragan Stojkovic and Co. put in a dazzling display against the tournament favorites England in their opening game. Following that narrow defeat, they drew 1-1 against Slovenia. If the Eagles clinch a victory against Denmark and the England vs Slovenia match finds a winner, then the backbenchers of group C will go through to the next round. While everyone is going through the numbers and points, let’s have a look at the team news of this fixture.

Kasper Hjulmand might start Joakim Maehle against the Eagles. The Danish star came off the bench in the draw against the Three Lions and put in a stern show. Eriksen will be leading the attacking midfield while Manchester United forward Rasmus Hojlund will start on the left side. Denmark should go with the same playing XI that held Gareth Southgate’s boys to a 1-1 draw last week.

Stojkovic could bench Aleksandar Mitrovic or Dusan Vlahovic in this important match. Both of these players failed to live up to the expectations. If this happens, then Sergej-Milinkovic Savic could return to the playing squad. Apart from that, there should not change in the starting line-up.
