Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Denmark could line up in Saturday's Euro 2020 clash with Finland.

Denmark will be looking to make the perfect start to their Euro 2020 campaign when they take on Finland in their Group B opener on Saturday night.

There are plenty of familiar names in the Denmark squad, with the likes of Kasper Schmeichel, Christian Eriksen and Andreas Christensen all set to start their tournament opener this weekend.

Tottenham Hotspur's Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is expected to feature alongside Thomas Delaney in the middle of the park, with Eriksen operating just ahead of the midfield two.

Head coach Kasper Hjulmand has a number of decisions to make in the forward areas, but it seems likely that Martin Braithwaite and Yussuf Poulsen will be handed starting roles.

Arguably the only major talking point when it comes to team selection involves the centre-forward position, where there are a number of candidates to start.

Braithwaite could potentially go through the middle, while Kasper Dolberg, who has scored seven times at international level, is pushing for a start.

Jonas Wind is being tipped to get the nod, though, with the 22-year-old, who plays his club football for Copenhagen, scoring three times in seven outings for his national side.

Denmark's strength in the middle of their defence is also shown by the fact that Joachim Andersen and Jannik Vestergaard are both likely to be among the substitutes for the Group B clash.

Denmark possible starting lineup: Schmeichel; Wass, Christensen, Kjaer, Maehle; Hojbjerg, Delaney; Poulsen, Eriksen, Braithwaite; Wind
