After comfortably brushing Russia aside on matchday one, Belgium will be aiming at quickly booking a place in the round of 16 with a victory over Denmark on Thursday.

Romelu Lukaku was in fine form, scoring two of three unanswered goals recorded by the Red Devils. Borussia Dortmund right-back Thomas Meunier scored the other.

On the other end, Denmark had an underwhelming start to the tournament, recording a 1-0 loss to Finland amid some controversy.

Romelu Lukaku to maintain red hot start

Romelu Lukaku took little time to get himself running in the competition and the Inter Milan striker is expected to get the job done against Denmark.

Belgium are loaded with talent in multiple areas which will no doubt cause huge problems for Denmark, problems they will likely fail to handle.

The Red and White will also likely be without Inter Milan midfielder Christian Eriksen which is a huge blow.

Belgium are favorites to win this one with their odds priced at 2.06 by Betway. Denmark, in comparison, have their odds pinned at 3.95. A draw has been priced at 3.11.
