Group B qualification scenarios

Ahead of the final games of Group B, Denmark can still qualify automatically for the last 16 of Euro 2020.
Belgium are already through but will qualify as group winners if they avoid defeat against Finland, although the Fins can overtake Roberto Martinez's men if they secure the win in St Petersburg.
Russia will finish second with victory over Denmark, but the winless Danes could seal an unlikely runners-up berth if they beat Russia and Belgium defeat Finland.

Hope springs eternal for Danes

Even with zero points on the board, Denmark are still in with a shout of what would be a universally popular qualification for the last 16.
And the Danes showed enough in a battling performance against Belgium to convince fans old and new that a fairy-tale outcome could still be on the cards - scoring the second-quickest goal in European Championship history.
In front of a raucous Copenhagen crowd, we can see a similarly speedy start, and Denmark to lead at half time is 13/10.

Goalscorer bets

No one will be keener to find the net than Denmark striker Martin Braithwaite, who failed to score against Belgium despite a hatful of chances.

Despite his woes in front of goal, the Barcelona ace was a constant thorn in Belgium's side, and he's 5/1 to score first.

Other tasty bets include Aleksei Miranchuck to score the first goal of the game at 9/1 while Yussuf Poulsen to bag a brace is 14/1.

Finland vs Belgium

When: Monday June 21, 20:00 BST

Where: Saint Petersburg

Best bets

Eden Hazard to assist a goal at 2/1.

Kevin de Bruyne to score first at 11/2.

International head-to-head

Finland wins: 4

Draws: 3

Belgium wins: 0

Finland goals: 13

Belgium goals: 6

Hazard warning for Finland

It's fair to say that Eden Hazard has had better seasons, but he will feel a whole lot better after his assist on Thursday - his ninth in a major international tournament since the 2014 World Cup.

That is more than any other European player, and with Hazard set to play an even larger role against Finland, 2/1 on him adding to that impressive record is a tempting price.

Goalscorer bet

After missing almost three weeks through injury, Kevin de Bruyne returned to action in fine fashion against Denmark, setting up one and scoring another in a blistering second-half cameo.

And if that was the performance of a man easing himself back into the action, then Finland better watch out.

Inter Milan's Romelu Lukaku can continue his chase for the tournament's Golden Boot and is 3/1 to score a brace.
