Euro 2024: Denmark advances with lackluster draw against Serbia | Football News

Amidst a Euro 2024 tournament filled with stalemates and low-scoring games, Group C had stood out with its lack of goal-scoring action. However, the matchup between Denmark and Serbia at the Munich Football Arena on Tuesday continued this trend, ending in a dull draw.

Despite the lack of goals, both teams displayed moments of aggression and attempted to break the deadlock. Denmark started the game on the front foot, looking to capitalize on Serbia’s defensive approach. Christian Eriksen’s early shot on target was a highlight, earning him the player of the match award.

On the other hand, Serbia struggled to create clear-cut chances, with skipper Aleksandar Mitrovic having a disappointing performance up front. Despite introducing key players like Dusan Tadic and Luka Jovic in the second half, Serbia failed to find a breakthrough. Ultimately, neither team could muster enough attacking threat to secure a victory.

The draw meant that both Denmark and Slovenia, who also failed to win a match in the tournament, advanced to the round of 16 from Group C. This unique scenario sets Group C apart from the rest of the groups, as no other group will have two winless teams progressing to the knockout stage.

In post-match comments, Serbia coach Dragan Stojkovic highlighted the tight nature of the game, acknowledging Denmark’s strength as a side. Meanwhile, Denmark coach Kasper Hjulmand expressed satisfaction with his team’s progression to the next stage, emphasizing the need to improve their attacking play for upcoming matches.

Despite the lack of goals in this match, both teams will need to step up their offensive tactics as they face tougher competition in the knockout rounds of Euro 2024.
