The Czech Republic face Denmark in a fascinating UEFA Euro 2020 quarter-final today in Azerbaijan. Having unexpectedly taken out a very decent Netherlands side, the Czechs will feel that anything is possible. So will Denmark, though, with the Danes now the people’s choice for champions – but who will make the semis? Czech Republic vs Denmark is free to watch on the ITV Hub at 5pm BST. Make sure you know how to watch a Czech Republic vs Denmark live stream, wherever you are in the world.
The team news is in and the Czechs stick with their 4-2-3-1 with Patrik Schick the lone striker. Adam Hložek, Michal Sadílek and Aleš Matějů are all out of the squad. Jan Bořil is back in the XI after suspension. The Danes name the same side that beat Wales in the last round.
Denmark are the favourites on paper. Kasper Hjulmand’s side are on a roll having put in some great performances, scoring four in their last two games, including a 4-1 rout of Russia and a 4-0 victory over Wales.
Danish goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel admits he’s worried… about the hot weather in Baku, that is:
“It’s going to be nice not standing there freezing! It’ll probably be the outfield players who’re going to feel the effect of it. But many of them have been playing a lot in hot countries, so it’s not going to be the first time for them.”
It would be foolish to underestimate the Czechs though. They’re full of confidence and head coach Jaroslav Šilhavý has done wonders, bringing the likes of Petr Ševčík, Pavel Kadeřábek and Antonín Barák into his starting XI. If Patrik Schick gets going, we could be in for an interesting fixture.
It’s a 5pm BST kick-off at the Baku Olympic Stadium today. Read on for more details on how to watch a Czech Republic vs Denmark live stream for free, wherever you are in the world.
