Czech Republic: Czech Republic coach Jaroslav Silhavy has his squad playing with confidence as the round of 16 continues, especially striker Patrik Schick. The Czech striker scored big goals for his side in his Euro campaign and scored his fourth of the tournament in his previous game against the Netherlands. Defender Jan Boril is available for selection again after serving a suspension, and Silhavy will likely welcome his return to the starting XI against Denmark.
Denmark: The Danes’ trajectory throughout their Euro campaign has been filled with strong emotions and great results, and the momentum and timing of the team’s form is set to continue as the quarter-finals begin. Manager Kasper Hjulmand united his squad as they caught fire after losing their first two group stage matches. Their big 4-0 win over Wales as Martin Braithwaite, Kasper Dolberg and Mikkel Damsgaard, could be a springboard for another big game for Denmark.
It should be a close and hotly contested game in this one, but Denmark are riding a wave of remarkable momentum in this tournament. A narrow victory for the Danes. Take: Czech Republic 1 Denmark 2
