Match Day 1 (Part Two)


After the only match on the opening day, Euro 2020 entered in full swing with three matches on the second day of competition.

Wales face a tough task against Switzerland, Denmark would be very favored to put the cleaners out of the standings, Finland and Belgium starting their quest for redemption against an unpredictable Russian team.

Good luck with your tips and remember to enter them in the sheet below to join in all the fun and express the opinion of the audience.

Here are the committee’s thoughts on all the procedures that took place during the night.

This is going to be a very tough tournament, and I think Switzerland is the best team here. But neither country will enjoy going to Baku throughout this confrontation, and although the Swiss have enjoyed better preparation, they are also attracting specialists in the group stage from the European Championship. Having shaken off their inferiority complex in recent European championships, Wales must look for at least one point.

Denmark will be well aware that they have fallen into one of the more difficult looking groups, and will want to kick off a match against the tournament’s newcomers in Finland. The Danes also have the perks of playing this game in their spirit court in Parken, and they should have plenty of firepower for the Finnish side to be happy to be there.

Perhaps it is the fact that the country has never settled on a common language, let alone a solid start 11, that makes Belgium the team most likely to ignite spontaneously in an amusing fireball of finger-pointing and counter-accusations.

However, the Red Devils are well aware that time is running out to win a major championship with their golden generation undoubtedly. They should move the willing but technically limited Russian side in picturesque Saint Petersburg.

Although most of the money is going the Swiss’s way, their world ranking of 13 is very close to the Welshman at 17. There will be less in this match than many people feel and Wales are on a good level in this tournament. All eyes will be on Gareth Bale, but it may be Liverpool’s Xherdan Shaqiri and Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka who will decide Switzerland’s fate and whether they can handle this difficult group.

Denmark should really be pretty strong for Finland in Copenhagen and Russia will be looking for an extra boost to play in St Petersburg against a heavyweight opponent. Belgium have a strong tendency to appear late in the tournament, but they will also be sweating over the health of star Kevin De Bruyne, after the facial injuries he suffered in the Champions League final. Winning this match will be vital to both their confidence and their chances and they will prevail in a match with high goals.

Switzerland, tied, Belgium

Who does not like fairy tales? Wales was fantastic in the 2016 edition of this tournament, and there are expectations that it will repeat even without Ryan Giggs at the helm. With some delicious strikers from England and European clubs, there are goals in this team.

However, the team is flawed and the defense may score well in goals against the column. Pair that with Team Switzerland which is a solid group of European players and this is a game that should be a formality for the Swiss. Fabian Char to score a scream from a distance, and Brielle Empolo to take advantage in the second just before the end.

Denmark vs Finland match will be an absolute breaking point for the game. The Danes are on fire. Victories against Bosnia and Austria and a draw with Germany should not be inhaled. With Finland showing absolutely no way against their near neighbors Estonia and Sweden, they will need to pull something out of the bag to get anything here.

But they will use Forss, new EPL striker Marcus Forss scoring in the first half of stoppage time completely against the course of play. Parity will be restored when Christian Eriksen bends a trademark free kick around the wall at the clock. Denmark would smash with this score, the match they counted on winning.

The Goals Festival will be in St. Petersburg. Belgium will surpass this with a goal of five. towering dead Pool Striker and dedicated video star Artem Dzyuba (look at it!) will take center stage early in this game, and Belgium will look shaky until Romelu Lukaku heads in before the break.

The second half would see unexpected errors from both sides, and Belgium equalized before conceding late, making for a rough end. A satisfactory but unconvincing start from the Belgians, but there is plenty to come from Russia’s surprise package.

Draw, Denmark, Belgium

In the battle of two small and populous nations, I imagine a tie on points in Baku in Azerbaijan, a place perhaps the most famous in Eurovision! Wells is flexible and well organized and of course has the super captain Gareth Bale. The Swiss have more depth throughout the park and have been in good shape, winning six of their last seven matches.

Although Finland has improved significantly over recent years, they are facing a Danish team that has scored an astonishing 31 goals with nine wins in their last 11 games. Inter Milan’s Christian Eriksen is a star midfielder with an astonishing goal-scoring record and thanks to his home-field advantage, his side should comfortably beat their Scandinavian neighbours.

Romelu Lukaku is likely to be one of the main contenders for the tournament’s Golden Boot, and his talented side will be confident of beating their opponent. Since more than a feat at the 2018 World Cup, Russia’s performance has been inconsistent, and despite the advantage at home, they will struggle to contain ‘Les Diables Rouges’.
