The Danes reached the quarter by beating Wales 4-0 in the last 16, while the Czechs suffered a shock in the last 16 by beating the Netherlands.
Denmark and Czech Republic meet on Saturday afternoon in Baku in the quarter-finals of Euro 2020, with Kasper Hjulmand’s favorite favorites to advance to the last four.
The Czechs have scored in eight of their last 11 matches in all competitions and in Patrik Schick they boast one of the best scorers of the competition. The Bayer Leverkusen forward has beaten four times, with the Czechs goal scorer in three of their four matches.
Denmark, on the other hand, after rugby defeats in their opening group matches, started their recovery with a 4-1 victory over Russia in the knockout stages. After scoring eight goals in two matches, the only time they could not find the goal in Euro 2020 was in their traumatic opening match against Finland with Christian Eriksen’s fearsome collapse.

Olympic Stadium | Bakoe | Azerbaijan
Capacity: 68,700 | reduced to 50%
Games: Group Stage and Quarterfinal (Four Matches)
Year of construction: 2015
Bakoe’s Olympic Stadium was one of the venues for matches in Group A and would now host the quarter-finals between the Czech Republic and Denmark.
The Olympic Stadium was built for the European Games in 2015 and will hold fond memories for Chelsea fans as the scene of their 2019 Europa League final over Arsenal.
The 68,700-seat stadium is near Boyukshor Lake, which is the second largest lake in Azerbaijan.
The Czechs have no injuries on the way to the clash and welcome Jan Boril, the defender of Slavia Prague, who started all three group matches but missed the last 16 clash with the Netherlands through suspension.
The Danes will likely welcome Daniel Wass and Yussuf Poulsen who missed out on the win over Wales, while defender Simon Kjaer would also be available despite an injury scare in the round of 16.
- This is the third match between the Czech Republic and Denmark during the European Championship – the Czechs have won both previous matches, 2-0 in the EURO 2000 group stage and 3-0 in the 2004 quarterfinals.
- After just one of their first 44 strokes on EURO 2020 (2% conversion), Denmark have now scored eight of their last 31 in the competition (26%).
- Mikkel Damsgaard was directly involved in seven goals in his six appearances for Denmark in all competitions, scoring three and assisting four. Damsgaard created more chances in the last round (3) than any other Danish player in their 4-0 victory against Wales.
- Patrik Schick has scored 15 goals in 30 matches for the Czech Republic, which has so far scored four goals in four matches at EURO 2020. Only five players have scored 5+ goals in their first ever EURO tournament, most recently Antoine Griezmann in 2016 for France (six goals), while one of the other five was previously Schick’s compatriot Milan Baros at EURO 2004 (five).
