Denmark vs Portugal Preview

The sixth day of the finals will contain the second round of matches in Group B.

The opening game will be between surprise package Denmark and 2004 runners up Portugal in Lviv, the Danish shocked the Netherlands in a backs to the wall one nil victory to make a fantastic start to the tournament. The Portuguese tried similar tactics against Germany, but to no avail as the Germans came away with a one nil victory.

Denmark will take a massive amount of confidence into this game knowing that a repeat performance and a win almost guarantees qualification to the quarters, Portugal on the other hand know that this is a match they cannot lose, if they become more expansive this game (which I suspect they might), they have every chance of winning this contest.

I'm struggling to call this game, I can see it being a draw to be honest with a goal each from both. I don't think Portugal will qualify for the quarter finals but after their opening match, the Danish have a real chance of reaching the next stage of this tournament.
