Denmark and Serbia will go head-to-head on Tuesday with both teams looking to achieve their first victory at the tournament in their final group-stage game. The race for qualification is wide open in Group C, and we’re all set for an exciting match as the two sides go all out for the three points.

Denmark’s high-pressing and possession-oriented system hasn’t produced the results they may have hoped for so far, despite an impressive point against England. A draw in their opening match against Slovenia will have been a disappointment, but they’ve undoubtedly shown signs of being capable of qualifying for the next round. 

Kasper Hjulmand’s side have won possession in the final third 5.5 times per game while also keeping the ball 59.4 per cent of the time. Their high-tempo setup particularly caused problems for England, with Morten Hjulmand’s long-range strike securing them a point. 

Christian Eriksen has not only been a standout performer for the Danes but also in the tournament overall. Only Mert Müldür (8.27) and Fabían Ruiz (8.64) have averaged a higher match rating at Euro 2024. 

With his 11 chances created – more than any other player in the competition – Eriksen’s creativity will be crucial if Denmark aim to reach the latter stages of the tournament. 

Serbia might feel slightly unfortunate to only be on one point at Euro 2024. Their performance against England after going behind showed plenty of fight, but Southgate’s resolute defence made it difficult for them to find a result.

Dragan Stojković’s side had plenty of momentum throughout the second half, but their lack of creativity has cost them. Serbia have created just three big chances in the competition – only Scotland have managed less (2). With just one goal to their name, they will need to step up their attacking threat against the Danes.

Serbia have plenty of attacking prowess in their side, but we’re yet to see some of their star names produce in front of goal. Aleksandar Mitrović and Dušan Vlahović have been regular scorers for their respective club sides in recent years, but both players have failed to get their names on the scoresheet at the tournament.

Strahinja Pavlović’s dominance at the back has ensured Serbia have been difficult to beat at Euro 2024. With four clearances and 2.5 successful tackles per 90 minutes, Stojkovic will be hoping for his experienced defender to continue his fine form in their final group-stage game.
