Czech Republic entered Euro 2020 looking to make a name for themselves and trying to replicate the heroics of Euro 2004 when they reached the semi-finals, only losing to eventual winners Greece after extra-time. Placed in Group D alongside England, Croatia and Scotland, Czech Republic kicked off Euro 2020 with a 2-0 win over the latter and secured their place in the last-16 after a 1-1 draw with the 2018 World Cup runners-up. Czech Republic entered the final day of the group stage in first place but ended it third after a 1-0 defeat to England, though they still qualified as one of the best third-placed teams. But their big result came in the last-16 as they beat Netherlands rather comfortably, 2-0 having not been given a chance of advancing.
For Denmark, Euro 2020 has been an emotional ride, but they have used it to show that this team aren’t here to make up the numbers. After losing their first two games against Finland and Belgium, the former under tragic circumstances, nobody would have expected Denmark to still be in the competition come the quarter-finals. But a 4-1 win over Russia was enough for Denmark to finish second, becoming the first team to reach the knockouts having lost their opening two matches. Wales were the opponents in the last-16 and they were blown away, with Denmark winning 4-0, aided by a late Welsh collapse.

Czech Republic vs Denmark: Match Stats
Patrik Schick has been one of the men of Euro 2020 so far, both for Czech Republic and across the tournament as a whole, scoring four times in four matches. Schick opened the tournament with a brace against Scotland including the longest goal ever scored at a European Championship before netting again against Croatia. He also opened the scoring in Czech Republic’s 2-0 win over Netherlands to sent them to the quarter-finals.
One player to miss that last-16 win was Jan Boril, who had to sit out due to suspension for an accumulation of yellow cards. The full-back was booked in Czech Republic’s draw with Croatia and again in the defeat to England, and may feel he has a free hit with yellow cards wiped after the quarter-finals.
