What do you need to know?

Highlights: Germany 4-0 Denmark

Though defeats for both of these nations on Matchday 1 were not entirely unexpected given the strength of their opponents, a point-less start does ramp up the pressure as they look to kick-start their campaigns here at Stadium MK.

Denmark have arguably the most to put right given the 2017 runners-up suffered a comprehensive 4-0 defeat against Germany with coach Lars Søndergaard lamenting the fact they failed to come through periods of pressure and play with the necessary courage.

Linda Sällström's first-minute strike for Finland in their 4-1 reverse against Spain highlighted a fearlessness in Anna Signeul's side but they will need to tighten up at the back, particularly in the air after conceding three times from headers in that opener.

Reporters' views

Sture Sandø, Denmark reporter

After a tough loss to Germany in the opener it's time for Denmark to get back on track. It's all or nothing against Finland and the Danes are well aware of that. They not only want a victory but they also want to show the kind of football that has brought them here.

Coach Søndergaard does not have young creative starlet Kathrine Møller Kühl at his disposal after she picked up two yellow cards on her EURO debut. The 19-year-old would have been picked to play in central midfield ahead of the experienced Sanne Troelsgaard, who must now show what she can do to help Denmark avoid failing to get out of the group for the first time since 2009.

Women's EURO 2022 team-mates: Denmark

Mikael Erävuori, Finland reporter

Both Finland and Denmark suffered defeats on Friday and that means this match is crucial for both. In reality, only winning counts if either are to maintain their hopes of reaching the knockout stage. Finland are not likely to make any major changes, tactically or in formation, sticking to their familiar 4-4-2. Coach Anna Signeul may opt to make a couple of changes to her starting XI to give her side other options going forwards other than counterattacks, which still remain the team's main threat.

Finland may have a slight 'home ground' advantage as this will be their second match at Stadium MK in Milton Keynes and they will also need the same kind of support as they had on Matchday 1.

View from the camps

Lars Søndergaard, Denmark coach: "I'm expecting a very well-organised [Finland] team in a 4-4-2 or perhaps 4-5-1 formation. They're a very disciplined team that play on the counterattack. Not that they're not trying to play with the ball, but their counterattacks make them especially dangerous."

Anna Signeul, Finland coach: "It is a very important match and Denmark are a very good team. Perhaps they didn't look great against Germany, but we know they are a good team. They have world-class players like Pernille Harder, that everyone knows about. We respect Denmark but we are also ready for tomorrow."
