RUS vs DEN Dream11:As the Euro 2020 rolls on, it will be Russia that squares off to Denmark for their final Group B fixture. Russia kicked off their campaign through a 3-0 defeat to Belgium, but bounced back in style to beat Finland 1-0.
Talking about Denmark, they’ve had the most challenging tournament in contrast to the rest of the teams. The Danish side missing out Christian Eriksen due to a serious heart issue, combined with back to back defeats to Finland and Belgium has made their chances of advancing to the next round difficult. Considering the fact that Denmark have played some quality football in their last two games, they will feel hard done by to not book a spot in the Round of 16.
