In the last four meetings that these sides have met, Denmark have won three times against Armenia. The latter, however, were able to seize a four-goal clean sheet in the only victory they earned against their Danish rivals from the said streak.

 

Denmark

Denmark are among those sides who can flaunt a good Euro record, especially when the count would start in 1984 when the finished as a semi-finalist in the tournament proper. They have since qualified for all of the finals but one (2008) and were champions in 1992. In 2012, they side settled in the Group stage and placed 12th overall. Their most recent results have so far been pleasant. Since their World Cup qualification campaign in September 2013, the Danish Dynamite have only lost once, won five times, and forced a draw twice.

 

Armenia

Armenia have never qualified for the Euro final, but they have some beautiful m atches to brag about in the qualifications. In their debut year in 1996, the side bagged a promising victory 2-1 away against the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Their best campaign was in 2012, coming within one match of reaching the UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying play-offs. Bernard Challandes will need plenty of game plan revisions (and improvements) if he wants his side to advance through the 2016 finals for the very first time in their history. The ascent will be very difficult—especially with the likes of Portugal and Denmark in the same group—but not impossible nevertheless.

 

Online betting tip: Denmark will pull off an Armenia rout.
