We’re onto the fourth and final quarter-final today, which sees Denmark’s The Killing (which breezed through the group stages) take on Scotland’s Shetland. Shetland edged out Wales’ Hinterland for a place in the quarters, and now it has to step up its game even further to try and dislodge one of the favourites. Can it cause on upset?
So yesterday’s second quarter-final was a titanic struggle, which saw this happen…
Happy Valley 54%
That means we bid a fond farewell to Iceland’s Trapped and Happy Valley, by the skin of its teeth, progresses to the semi-final, where it will play one of these two:
REPRESENTING DENMARK: THE KILLING (SEEDED TEAM)
Form guide:The veteran in the tournament, The Killing nonetheless is still a dangerous team and is viewed as one of the favourites to win the trophy. Sarah Lund spearheads the show’s formidable challenge, and her obsessive attention to detail and relentless drive still marks her out as one of the best players in the world, let alone Europe. Look out for burly Theis Birk Larsen at the back, the enigmatic Troels Hartmann in midfield and Jan Meyer up front with Lund. It’s a shame Meyer can’t stay fit because together, these two ar a very strong partnership. A big contender nonetheless.
REPRESENTING SCOTLAND: SHETLAND
Form guide: Ann Cleeves’ Shetland stories received a strong adaptation (if not scheduling from the BBC) and its star striker is Jimmy Perez, who leads a tight-knit team around him. Some members of the press have questioned whether Perez is too nice to do it on the big stage, but we’re backing Perez to be one of the stars of the tournament if he can find his killer instinct.
So who will progress into the second semi-final? Denmark or Scotland? The Killing or Shetland?
