A win for Russia and they are through to the knockout stages of the tournament – it is that simple. Stanislav Cherchesov’s men boosted their hopes of making it into the final 16 of the competition with their narrow victory over Finland on Thursday afternoon thanks to the first-half goal from Aleksei Miranchuk which proved the difference on the day.
Denmark have had a rotten Euro 2020 so far. Apart from the obvious devastating scenes in Copenhagen against Finland, the Danes have been unable to get a point on the board. The defeat against Finland was followed up by a defeat against Belgium despite a stunning start from Kasper Hjulmand.
Russia were torn apart by Belgium in their opening game of the tournament which will give Denmark some confidence with their emphatic first-half display against the Red Devils in mind. However, Russia will certainly prefer to be in their position with their Euro 2020 destiny firmly in their own hands.
Hjulmand’s men may not be able to qualify as runners-up of Group B, but they are still well within a chance of making it out of the group as one of the best third-placed sides. With Christian Eriksen now out of hospital following his horrific incident, his teammates will be looking to put a smile back on the faces of the Danish supporters with a win in Copenhagen on Monday.

Russia vs Denmark: Match Stats
Denmark may have only netted on one occasion in this tournament, however, they came into the competition having scored 21 goals in their seven games leading up to the competition. The events in Copenhagen during their opening tournament certainly will have had an effect on the side but if they show a similar display seen against Belgium then they will prove a threat to Russia’s backline.
Three of Russia’s last four games ended with under 2.5 goals. The only exception was their emphatic 3-0 defeat against Belgium on the opening night of their Euro campaign. The Russian’s have failed to score more than one goal in each of their previous four games.
Russia vs Denmark: Corner Stats
Over the course of Denmark’s opening two games, Denmark have totalled 11 corners. Despite their stunning display against the Belgian’s on Thursday, Kasper Hjulmand’s men only had two corners over the course of the game. It was their defeat against Finland in Copenhagen that saw the Dane’s rack up nine corners as they ended up chasing the game following Joel Pohjanpalo’s 60th-minute goal.
Russia vs Denmark: Cards Stats
In Russia’s opening game against Belgium, they avoided picking up any yellow cards despite being on the end of a heavy defeat. However, in the narrow victory against Finland on Thursday, Cherchesov’s men were on the receiving end of three yellow cards having given away 12 fouls during the 90 minutes.
