Match Preview

The second of two Euro 2024 last-16 ties on Saturday sees hosts Germany face Denmark at the Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund for the late kickoff. Julian Nagelsmann's team topped Group A, securing their spot in the knockout rounds, while Denmark secured second place in Group C.

Germany, looking to move past the disappointments of their last two World Cup group-stage exits, secured their knockout spot with two games to spare by scoring seven goals against Scotland and Hungary. Needing only to avoid defeat against Switzerland to ensure they topped Group A, Germany found themselves in danger of dropping to second place due to Dan Ndoye's opener. However, Niclas Fullkrug's injury-time equalizer confirmed their status as group winners, helping them avoid a last-16 clash with reigning champions Italy.

Despite finishing top of their group, Germany now face a challenging path, grouped with heavyweights Spain, France, Portugal, and Belgium. Should they defeat Denmark, they will face either Spain or Georgia in the quarter-finals. Germany enters this match unbeaten in seven games this year, winning five and drawing two.

Group C was characterized by low-scoring games, with England, Slovenia, Serbia, and Denmark combining for just seven goals, making it the lowest-scoring group in men's Euro history. Despite not winning any group matches, Denmark’s three draws were enough to secure second place.

Denmark managed only two goals in Group C, including a spectacular strike by Morten Hjulmand against England, and have now reached the knockout stages of back-to-back Euros for the first time. The Danes will need to improve quickly to challenge the hosts but share Germany's seven-match unbeaten streak in 2024, with just one loss in their last 15 matches.

Germany and Denmark last met competitively at the 2012 European Championships, where Germany won 2-1. Both subsequent friendly encounters ended in 1-1 draws.

Germany's Nagelsmann fielded the same starting XI for all three Group A matches but will have to make at least one change as Jonathan Tah is suspended for accumulation of yellow cards. Antonio Rudiger, suffering from a hamstring issue, might be replaced by Nico Schlotterbeck if unfit, while Robin Koch and Waldemar Anton are on standby. Fullkrug's recent form could push Nagelsmann to consider him as a starter, though Kai Havertz is expected to retain his place.

Denmark’s coach Kasper Hjulmand will also need to adjust his lineup due to Morten Hjulmand’s suspension. Christian Norgaard, Mathias Jensen, or Thomas Delaney, who recently recovered from illness, are potential replacements. In attack, Jonas Wind's recent performances have been underwhelming, and Andreas Skov Olsen, Kasper Dolberg, or Yussuf Poulsen might take his place.
