The day after the qualifications of Spain (1-1, 3 tab to 1 against Switzerland) and Italy (2-1 against Belgium) for the semi-finals of the Euro, the Czech Republic and Denmark face off at the Olympic Stadium in Baku for the third quarter-final. Czech coach Jaroslav Silhavy can count on two important reinforcements, Jan Boril being back from suspension and captain Vladimír Darida being restored after his forfeit against the Netherlands. Antonin Barak, author of a very good match against the Dutch, nevertheless retains his starting position. The rest is classic with a 4-2-3-1 in which the double-pivot Tomas Soucek, Tomas Holes will still be to watch, as the top scorer of this formation Patrik Schick.
Offensive Kasper Hjulmand is also picking up players, with returns from Daniel Wass and Yussuf Poulsen. However, it does not change the team that blew up Wales in eighth (4-0). The revelation of this Euro in Denmark and UC Sampdoria player Mikkel Damsgaard keeps his place in the left lane despite a more discreet game in the previous round. Kasper Dolberg is preferred over Poulsen.
