Netherlands v Denmark Betting
Euro 2012 - Group B
Saturday June 9th - 5.00pm BST - BBC1
Metalist Stadium, Kharkiv UKR
Group B of Euro 2012 kicks off with Netherlands versus Denmark on Saturday 8th June at the Metalist Stadium in Kharkiv, Ukraine. The so called 'Group of Death' containing Germany and Portugal along with these two sides, it will be important for teams to get off to a winning start. Denmark confidentally qualified for the finals finishing ahead of Portugal in qualification, but they face one of the market leaders to win Euro 2012 in the shape of Bert Van Merwijk's Dutch side.
Holland won Group E in qualification by winning eighth and losing one of their nine games. A defeat away to Sweden when already qualified was the only blip of a very strong campaign and the Dutch look like being a real force in the Ukraine and Poland in 2012.
Denmark topped their qualification group, also just losing the once, away in Portugal. Always well organised, Morten Olsen's side will be competitive, but with the likes of the Dutch, Germans and Portuguese in the same group, it's no real surprise that they are the outsiders of the quartet to qualify for the quarter finals and that Holland are odds on favourites to win this match.
