Worth mentioning: The most recent meeting between the two nations dates almost ten years ago to November 2011, when Denmark prevail 2:1 in a friendly game. That has been the only occasions when one of the teams have managed to score more than a goal in five H2H clashes registered in history so far. Finland are still searching for their first victory over the Red Dynamite, as up until now they’ve recorded one draw and four defeats. Understandably, only one of the encounters produced over 2,5 goals, while two witnessed goals at both ends.
