Denmark welcome Russia to Copenhagen for their final game in Group E with Kaspar Hjulmand’s side knowing they need a win to keep alive their hopes of progressing to the knockout stages.

Two defeats from their opening two matches mean the hosts have no margin for error, although their opponents are in a strong position after winning their last match 1-0 against Finland.

Avoiding defeat on Monday should be enough for Russia to qualify for the last-16 and bet365 offer them at 9/2 (5.50) to claim a victory.

Denmark are clear favourites to record their first success of the competition, priced at 6/10 (1.60), while the draw – which would see them eliminated – is available at 3/1 (4.00).

The last time these two sides faced each other was in a friendly in 2012, which saw Russia record a 2-0 win.

Stansilav Cherchesov has no major injury concerns heading into the game and Russia also have no players suspended for their final group game.

Denmark are without Christian Eriksen after his collapse in the opening match of the group but otherwise have a full complement of players for this vital clash in Copenhagen on Monday evening. 

Russia vs Denmark Preview

Roared on by a noisy crowd at Parken Stadium on Thursday afternoon, Denmark gave the number one ranked side in the world a real fright before succumbing to two second half goals to lose 2-1 against Belgium.

That impressive showing will give them heart ahead of Monday’s showdown and Hjulmand will want his team to come flying out of the blocks as they did against Roberto Martinez’s side.

Russia conceded twice in the opening 35 minutes of their game with Belgium and if Denmark make another positive start, there could be some interest in backing them to take an early advantage in a game they know they must win. 

Russia vs Denmark Preview

The Danes have scored first half goals in six of their last nine matches in all competitions and a repeat on Monday is priced at 8/11 (1.73) bet365.

For a value bet, backing over 1.5 goals in the first half could also appeal at 7/4 (2.75).
