Finland are one of two nations making their European Championship debut at Euro 2020, but a curtain-raising clash against Denmark promises to prove troublesome on Saturday. Denmark are a dark horse to do well in the summer tournament after losing just two of their last 28 games, but topping Group B ahead of favorites Belgium looks like a hope too far.

Three points against Finland will be crucial in Copenhagen if the Danes are to finish first in their pool, with Markku Kanerva’s side largely viewed as the likely large underdogs of their group. Kanerva’s men are one of the lowest-ranked teams in attendance at Euro 2020 (54th), while Denmark have pushed themselves up to 10th at just the right moment. Just as semi-finalists Wales were a surprise package at Euro 2016—their first European Championship—Finland will hope to replicate that success with a deep run of their own this year:

A Nordic showdown with Denmark could prove the ideal stage to begin that quest, positioning the Finns against a nation they’ve met almost as much as any other (59 total encounters). The Eagle-owls have lost in 38 of those games and conceded 151 goals along the way, an average of just under three goals leaked per meeting. One factor working against Finland this summer is familiarity. Kanerva’s 26-man squad is made up of players from 17 different leagues, and time is limited moulding that corps into a cohesive unit ahead of Euro 2020.

Kasper Hjulmand’s Denmark squad hail from only seven divisions by contrast, boasting representation from world-class forces like Chelsea, Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig. Like their opening opponents, Denmark finished as runners-up in their qualifying group to reach Euro 2020, but they’ve since grown and gathered attention as one to watch this summer:

Names like Christian Eriksen, Simon Kjaer and Kasper Schmeichel give the team great options in midfield and defense, though it’s Denmark’s lack of a top-tier presence in attack that may prove their undoing. The Danes will also be fortunate enough to host Finland, Belgium and Russia in Copenhagen for each of their group games, with the road only getting more treacherous after they clear the first hurdle.
