Euro 2012 Group B: Denmark vs. Portugal Tips, Predictions, & Picks

Euro 2012 Denmark vs. Portugal: Teamwork Key For Danes To Hold Portugal: Denmark and Portugal were both involved in 1-0 matches on the first match day in Group B on the UEFA Euro 2012 betting lines. One team is significantly happier than the other though, as the Danes know that they can potentially wrap up a surprising spot in the quarterfinals if they can get a point out of this second match. Don’t miss our Portugal vs. Denmark picks, as we answer the question as to who will win the Denmark vs. Portugal match.

The Portuguese know that they are going to need a heck of a lot of chances to win this match. They had their opportunities in the opening fixture against Germany, but they just weren’t able to get all that much on net. Of course, we know that Portugal knows that that was the toughest match that it had to endure, but this is the easiest match of the bunch in the Group of Death, and it is a fixture that absolutely has to be won in all likelihood to have a shot of getting into the quarterfinals.

The Danes though, played the most remarkable match of any team in our eyes in the first four days of this tournament. The squad got the goal that it badly needed on the counterattack from Michael Krohn-Dehli, who was able to get the job done for his nation. After that, there weren’t a heck of a lot of opportunities for Denmark, but the squad was able to do some damage on the counterattack and frustrate the heck out of the Netherlands and its tremendous attackers. Holland managed to get 20 shots off, but most didn’t end up hitting the target. In the end, Denmark probably would have been content with a point, but it managed all three, and now, it probably needs just two more points to ensure that it will get into the quarterfinals in shocking fashion out of Group B.

In net, both of these teams could have some problems. Stephan Andersen did a remarkable job against the Dutch, but we just don’t know if he is really ready to take over as the goalie to bring this team back to international prominence. Rui Patricio really didn’t have all that great of a match against Germany, though he wasn’t called into all that much work either. He only had to face four shots and two corners, but of that work, he did allow a goal to Mario Gomez.

The respect just doesn’t seem to be there for either of these teams. Sure, the Portuguese have names like Nani and Cristiano Ronaldo, and we know that they two are amongst the best in the world at their trade. However, both of these clubs are expected to finish behind the Germans and the Dutch in Group B. Denmark especially though, is ranked No. 10 in the world, and that tends to be forgotten. In other groups against other teams, it would have been a disappointment had the Danes not ultimately gotten three points from that opening fixture.

Denmark vs. Portugal Match Preview & Analysis: This is a dangerous match for the Portuguese. We think that they could come into this one thinking that they are going to take all three of these points in a heartbeat without many issues. In the end though, we think that Holland really underestimated the Danes, and Portugal might very well do the exact same thing. We love the intensity that Denmark used in this first match against the Dutch, and a similar effort would be crucial towards getting a point.
