Germany and Denmark will tune up for UEFA Euro 2020 with a friendly matchup at Tivoli Stadion in Innsbruck, Austria on Wednesday. The tournament was postponed last year because of the pandemic and will begin June 11, with Denmark facing Finland the following day and Germany looking at a showdown with France on June 15. The Danes have been on quite a run and have moved up to 10th in the FIFA world ranking, two spots ahead of the Germans. Denmark has won eight of its last nine, most recently a 4-0 rout of Austria, while Germany was stunned 2-1 by North Macedonia in its last outing.

Why you should back Germany
Manager Joachim Low will have his team fired up after the embarrassing loss to North Macedonia and a 6-0 drubbing by Spain in the Nations League in November. Germany outscored Romania and Iceland 4-0 in winning the two games in between. Low has plenty of veterans to lead the way, and midfielders Thomas Muller and Toni Kroos are still among the world's best playmakers. Muller led the German Bundesliga with 19 assists for champion Bayern Munich, while Kroos tied for third in La Liga with 10 for league runner-up Real Madrid.
The German squad also has young talent and many other stars from Bayern Munich. Joshua Kimmich had 10 assists, Serge Gnabry scored 10 goals and Leroy Sane set up nine and scored six for the league champion. Kai Havertz, who scored the goal that gave Chelsea the Champions League title, also will play a key role in the club's future. Longtime defenders Mats Hummels and Matthias Ginter are rock steady, and Chelsea star Antonio Rudiger comes off an impressive season but is likely to rest on Wednesday.
Why you should back Denmark
The Danes have looked like one of the best teams in the world for the past few years, going 16-8-2 in their last 26 games. They beat talented teams like England and Switzerland in that stretch, and both losses were to Belgium, the world's top-ranked team. They outscored Austria, Moldova and Israel 14-0 in three World Cup qualifying matches in March. In its last 10 matches, Denmark has outscored its opponents 28-5.
Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel and a relentless defense are tough to crack. Schmeichel had 11 clean sheets for Leicester City this season, and Andreas Christensen of Chelsea and captain Simon Kjaer of AC Milan form a strong partnership in front of him. Tottenham's Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Borussia Dortmund's Thomas Delaney make strong tackles in midfield, and Inter Milan's Christian Eriksen sets up the attack. Jonas Wind, who had 15 goals in 28 matches with FC Copenhagen, has become a dangerous scorer at age 22, and Barcelona's Martin Braithwaite and RB Leipzig's Yussuf Poulsen can cause problems up front.
