Euro 2012: Denmark v Germany

This is a preview of the Euro 2012 Group B game between Denmark & Germany.

Mario Gomez is looking to push on with more goals for Germany tonight.

  • Denmark and Germany both will know that a draw will be enough to see Germany home comfortably, without worrying too much about Holland and Portugal.
  • On the other hand, Denmark know that nothing but victory will secure them from a Euro 2012 spot, assuming results go their way.
  • Germany will be looking for the victory to stamp their authority as the only team to win all their group games till now, and they can seal that with a win tonight based on the current form that they are in.
  • Germany’s Mario Gomez has been in particularly dazzling form, scoring all the 3 goals for Germany so far, and will aim to continue on that run while keeping Klose out of the starting lineup.
  • Ozil, Podolski and Muller have been a great supporting cast creating assists and even having shots on target, but unable to find the back of the net.
  • Schweinsteiger might be rested looking at the coming fixtures and his recent injury concerns, which might bring Toni Kroos into the starting lineup.
  • Denmark have been playing well recently and after upsetting Holland and almost drawing with Portugal, they have been giving it a good go of things.
  • They will not be happy that Rommedahl and Zimling will be missing through injuries, which leaves them a bit short of creativity.
  • On the defensive end, Denmark has looked vulnerable, and that could lead to their downfall with a clinical Germany ahead of them today.
