ARD live: EM round of 16 Wales – Denmark in Amsterdam, 0: 4
Denmark in the EM quarter-finals
In Amsterdam, the favorite is already certain: Denmark, European champion of hearts, won the Nations League twice against Wales in 2018. The Welsh people celebrate another success with the last sixteen in their second EM participation after moving into the EM semifinals in 2016. Coach Rob Page, who will probably return to a 4-2-3-1 basic order, should ensure that it is not over yet. The fans are also hoping for Gareth Bale and his husband at the side Aaron Ramsey – together they made the difference in the preliminary round. Great euphoria in Denmark after the last victory should now continue. Excitement and a close match are guaranteed!
7:54 pm: The game ends 4-0. Wales weak, easy game for Denmark! These now have to fly to Baku, where their quarter-finals on Saturday 3.7. takes place.
4:30 p.m. – The line-ups are there from the 6 p.m. game. Wales play in the red home shirts, Denmark in the white away shirts.

ZDF live: EM round of 16 Italy – Austria in London
The Austrians are going to London with broad chests, the opponent is Italy, which showed the best performance with three wins of all teams in the European Championship preliminary round. But that shouldn’t keep Alaba, Arnautovic & Co from the alpine state from dreaming. The first victory at a European Championship and now the entry into the European Championship round of 16! The German team boss Franco Foda wants to create the great historical against Italy. Italy, on the other hand, is reaching for the stars and dreaming of the big title. Because it’s been a long time since the Azzurri were allowed to celebrate. Coach Mancini now has the problem of who to field next to Locatelli in midfield. With Verratti and Barella there is only room for two in midfield.
