Elsewhere, Lina Kjaersfeldt will face Belgium's Lianne Tan in the women's singles finals, while mixed doubles pair Niclas Nohr and Sara Thygesen will contest the final after overcoming top seeds Ireland.

Emil Holst has also made it all the way in the men's singles where he will battle Spain's Pablo Abian, and second-ranked Mathias Boe will partner Carsten Mogensen in the men's doubles later this afternoon.

Denmark have six medals to their name so far at the inaugural Games in Baku.
