DENMARK TO WIN @2Final result: 24 - 23
Profit: 16.00 - 8 = 8
I understand if someone else has a different point of view for this game, because interpretation can differ depending on who's predicting it.
In my opinion, and despite rooting for Spain, I'm quite afraid that Denmark will win.
They will only need some more support from Landing (keeper) that they had on their previous game aginast Hungary (won 27-25) and this should be easy for them then.
We could talk about their players, who are very motivated since Denmark is giving them a lot of support, expecting a Gold for their nation. But we can also talk, and probably that is more important, on their way of dealing with pressure.
They were behind against Hungary, and it was pretty clear to everyone that a starting defeat against a team that was considered of the "bad" was not good at all. Denmark played the last minutes of that game perfectly and that is very important for this bet, because it is another hard game.
Spain will have a lot more troubles than they had against Serbia, which was an "easy" game.
Sterbik (keeper) is not here, he is injured and the coach, knowing that, decided not to bring Sierra (3rd keeper, not at OG), so Spain has no second keeper now (they may call Sierra at later stages, I don't know the exact rules on that).
Having only one keeper is a big concern, because if Hombrados (other keeper) doesn't have his day, and that's becoming normal lately, Spain will certainly lose. Sterbik is a great morale support for his friend Hombrados, so we should consider that too.
Additionally, Spain will face a very closed 6-0 defense, with Mikkel Hansen and his mates locking the 6m line. It is the worst scenario for spanish attackers, who preffer the short distance shot than trying to shoot over the defense.
They don't have much choice either, because Alberto Entrerrios is not here and Alberto Garcia got injured some weeks before the OG, so the back players aren't that good at it. Wingers will have good chances, but as I said, Landing is a great keeper and he will not be easy.
This will certainly be a great game, and I recommend you all to watch it, wether you bet on it or not. Denmark is my pick for the outcome.

Well Denmark won by 1 goal, scored with 3 seconds left... Obviously quite lucky, and things didn't go exactly as I expected, specially with the keepers. Hombrados had a great day today, while Landin started awful and second keeper, named Cleverly (quite funny, yea) stopped 12 balls. Landin came in again late in the second half, and did better. On the players, the canarian Sarmiento (5 goals) carried the spanish team during most of the game on attack, with the help of the wingers. Spain has too many attack/defense player swaps and that is hurting them. On Denmark... well, no wonder Eggert is second top scorer in Bundesliga (over 200 goals, half of them from penalties). He did 4/4 on penalties, but bad from his natural position with 1 goal in 3 or 4 tries. Mikkel Hansen decided the game, as expected, with 8 goals. Most of them on tough moments when Denmark didn't know what to do.
You right Crator.
I wouldn't mind. I wanted to get the draw for this game, but it's always a bet that I preffer to do on the live market. I nailed it today on France - Spain (women) at odds 8.5
Hope Spain win! hehe ;-)
