Denmark odds: To win Euro 2020, how far will they go, top scorer and more
Denmark will be hoping to replicate their heroics of 1992 as they aim to end their silverware drought and defy the odds to lift the European Championship trophy.
The 1992 winners have had an inconsistent recent history in the competition having only qualified for one out of the previous three tournaments. Even when the Danes did qualify for Euro 2012 they could only manage one win in the group stage as they watched Germany and Portugal advance at their expense.
With Kasper Hjulmand at the helm, the Denmark team includes a blend of experience and youth with a host of current and former Premier League players making up the starting XI. It seems to be working well for Hjulmand, with his side only losing twice in their last 23 games – both coming against Belgium.
Demark left it until their final qualifier to confirm their spot in this summer’s tournament. Despite not losing any of their eight fixtures, Denmark had to settle for second as Switzerland pipped them to the top spot by one point.
The Danes will certainly take a great deal of confidence into the competition from their unbeaten run en route to the finals, however, a heavy reliance on Inter Milan’s Christian Eriksen in front of goal will cause some concern.
Denmark Euro 2020 odds
You can find Denmark at a huge 33/1 with Bet365 to win the tournament. Despite being serious outsiders, they have proven in 1992 they are not to be underestimated and capable of shocking the best of Europe’s national sides to prevail as champions.
In reality though, they will simply be looking to go as deep as possible and starting off on the right foot by winning the group at odds of 11/4. Belgium are the favourites, but cause a shock against the Red Devils and Hjulmand’s men will be expected to finish above both Russia and Finland.
Despite finishing as runners-up of their qualifying group, Denmark were placed into Pot 1 for the Euro 2020 draw. Joining them in Group B are their recent ‘bogey team’ and FIFA-ranked number one side in the world, Belgium, plus Finland and Russia.
Denmark kick off their Euro 2020 group stage against Finland in Copenhagen, before their games against Belgium and Russia.

If Denmark win Group B
If Denmark were to win Group B, this would be their route through to the final.
Last 16: The third-placed side Group A/D/E/F (likely contenders for which are Wales, Turkey, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Poland, Sweden, Portugal, France, Germany) in Seville on June 27.
Quarter-finals: The winner of Last-16 match 2, which is played between the winner of Group A (Italy favourites) and the Group C runners-up (likely Ukraine, Austria.)
Semi-finals: The semi-final will likely be played against the winner of Group F (Portugal, France, Germany favourites).
If Denmark qualify from Group B
If Denmark don’t win Group B, and merely qualify as they are 2/7 with Sky Bet, it could become a lot more complicated.
Last 16: The second-placed Group A side in Amsterdam, which could be any of Turkey, Italy, Wales, Switzerland on June 28th.
Quarter Finals: The winner of Last-16 match 3, which is played between the winner of Group C (which includes Netherlands, Ukraine, Austria, North Macedonia) and the third place in D, E or F, likely contenders for which are Czech Republic, Poland, France, Germany, Portugal.
Semi-finals: The winner of that Quarter Final will play the winner of Quarter Final Match 4 which could include the winner of Group D or Group E (expected to be England and Spain).
If Denmark finish third in their group and rank high enough among the third-placed teams, they would play the winner of Group F and then join the path they’d take if they won Group F (talk about over-complicating things!)
Denmark Golden Boot odds
Martin Braithwaite has netted just twice in 24 La Liga appearances for Barcelona this season which has meant the striker is not guaranteed to be a starter for Denmark. He is 100/1 with BetVictor to win the Golden Boot at the Euros this summer, with Harry Kane (6/1), Kylian Mbappe (8/1), Romelu Lukaku (9/1) and Cristiano Ronaldo (10/1) the favourites in this market.
