  • Portugal have scored in all of their 12 previous meetings - matches that have averaged 3.5 goals per game.


  • Denmark have won five successive competitive matches for the first time since Sep2008-Jun 2009. Victory would see them record six straight wins for first time since Jun-Nov 1999, and for a first time under Olsen.
  • The last team to beat Denmark in a competitive match were Portugal, who inflicted a 3-1 qualifying defeat in Lisbon in October 2010.
  • If selected, Nicklas Bendtner will win his 50th Danish cap. He has scored one goal in each of his four previous matches against Portugal and has never lost a match against them (three wins, one draw).


  • Portugal have lost their last three European Championship matches - their longest ever run of defeats in the tournament.
  • Paulo Bento's first match as Portugal head coach came in the 3-1 home victory over Denmark in October 2010.
