Head-to-head info

Overall, Germany and Denmark have met 29 times in international football. The former has been the more dominant nation, winning 15 of those games. They’ve also settled for eight draws, while the Danish have five victories against Germany. However, most of their meetings have been friendlies. Their last competitive clash was at Euro 2012, with the Germans running out 2-1 winners.


Expectations were higher than usual for Germany ahead of Euro 2024 and they’ve lived up to them, which is something we typically can’t say about the country when it comes to past major tournaments. Julian Nagelsmann’s men finished at the top of Group A with seven points from three fixtures, comfortably beating Scotland and Hungary while grabbing a single point in a 1-1 draw with Switzerland on matchday three.

The goals are flowing for Germany, bagging eight already. They netted five times in the tournament opener against the Scots, which got them off on the right foot. Jamal Musiala and Niclas Fullkrug have led the way, both scoring twice apiece. Kai Havertz, Emre Can, Ilkay Gundogan, and Florian Wirtz have all done their part, too. Nagelsmann’s best starting XI is devastating when they actually perform.

The Germans have won the Euros three times overall but they’ve had minimal success in recent years. England knocked them out in the Round of 16 three years ago. On a more positive note, Germany was a semifinalist in 2012 and 2016. Denmark is a team they could undoubtedly beat, hence the -165 odds at BetVictor.


After making an improbable run to the semifinals at Euro 2020 following Christian Eriksen’s collapse, Denmark was definitely seen as a team to watch is this tournament. And although they’re going through from Group C as runners-up behind England, the Danes finished with a mere three points, failing to win a single game. 

In the process, Kasper Hjulmand’s group have scored just twice. Sure, they’ve stayed strong defensively, but the goals need to come. Morten Hjulmand’s potential goal of the tournament was surely a beauty, though. Denmark is unbeaten in seven games overall and has only tasted defeat on one occasion in their last 15 outings. That’s a reason for optimism.

While the Danes have rarely bested Germany, they can certainly put up a respectable fight. There’s a lot of quality in this side and it takes just one moment of brilliance to decide this contest. soccer betting sites have labeled them as a clear underdog on Saturday.
