Russia VS Denmark LIVE Football Match Score June 21/6/2021
Russia face Denmark tonight knowing victory will guarantee them a route out of Euro 2020’s Group B this evening. Stanislav Cherchesov’s side unsurprisingly fell short in their opening game, suffering a 3-0 defeat against Belgium. However, they responded with a 1-0 victory against Finland, inspired by Atalanta’s Aleksei Miranchuk.
Denmark’s campaign has been entirely overshadowed by Christain Eriksen’s shocking cardiac arrest during their opening game against Finland. The midfielder is now recovering at home after undergoing successful heart surgery in hospital, and Denmark’s subsequent 2-1 defeat by Belgium was marked by emotional tributes to their talisman. Denmark did not suffer any new injury concerns against Belgium, but Jonas Wind and Mathias Jensen are both pushing for a place in the starting XI.
Russia started their Group B campaign with a disappointing 3-0 defeat to Belgium on June 12, but a 1-0 success over Finland last time out has placed them in a strong position ahead of their final match in the section.
Aleksey Miranchuk’s effort on the stroke of the interval was enough to beat Finland on Wednesday evening, and the result has left the Russians in second spot in the group heading into the final matchday.
It is fairly straightforward for Stanislav Cherchesov’s side, as a win would ensure that they are through to the last-16 stage of the competition, although a draw would also be enough to qualify if Finland fail to overcome Belgium in the section’s other match on the same night.
Third position, of course, could also be enough to advance, but Russia will not want to take any chances and will therefore be determined to overcome Denmark in Copenhagen.
The National Team actually reached the semi-finals of Euro 2008 but failed to make it out of the groups in 2012 and 2016, meaning that a spot in the round of 16 would be a huge step forward for Cherchesov’s side.
