What channel is Denmark v Finland Euro 2020 match on? Kick off time, live stream and latest team news
Denmark get their Euro 2020 campaign underway against Finland in Group B – here’s how to watch the game live on TV and online.
Denmark are dark horses to win Euro 2020 this summer after a stellar run of form in recent months that has seen them beat the likes of England and Austria, and push Belgium over 90 minutes.
Boss Kasper Hjulmand has put together an exciting squad full of young attacking talent and anchored by Premier League’s names Andreas Christiansen and Pierre-Emile Højbjerg.
With Belgium the clear favourites to win all three of their Euro 2020 fixtures in Group B, victory over Finland is a must if the Danes are to pinch that second automatic spot into the knockout stages, which is also being coveted by Russia.
These nations first met on the football field in 1970 and Finland boast just one win from 20 previous fixtures against the Danes. Finland are rated as one of the far outsiders to win the tournament this year and come into the tie having recently lost to Wales, Sweden and Switzerland.
Copenhagen’s Parken Stadium will host at least 11,200 spectators for this game, meaning there will likely be a partisan home crowd in the capital to welcome Hjulmand’s troops onto the field.

Denmark v Finland team news
Denmark: Hjulmand enjoys a very steady 4-3-3 system based on Højbjerg sitting in front of the defence and Thomas Delaney and Christian Eriksen moving forward to join the attack.
Jonas Wind should start up front, while the defence of Joakim Mæhle, Christensen, Simon Kjær and Daniel Wass – with Kasper Schmeichel in goal – effectively picks itself.
Finland: The Fins have had plenty of success playing three in defence lately and Juhani Ojala should sit in the centre, with Robert Ivanov on the right and potentially Daniel O'Shaughnessy on the left.
Star striker Teemu Pukki and midfielder Glen Kamara are the two big names in this squad. Don’t be surprised to see a 3-5-2 formation set out in Parken.

Our prediction: Denmark v Finland
Finland have stood up well against ‘bigger’ nations of late but without earning much in terms of results – and this could well be the same outcome here on Saturday.
For while the likes of Pukki can create magic out of thin air, Denmark should have the defensive solidity and midfield muscle to wrestle command of this game from the start.
Don’t be surprised if Eriksen runs the show and sets up Wind and Yussuf Poulsen for scoring chances. The Danes should be all set to claim three points.
