Denmark Preview – Unbeaten Danes ready to compete?

Confidence should flow through this Danish side at present, not least because they are currently enjoying a fifteen game unbeaten sequence (W8 D7) stretching back almost two years, but because several of those called up by head coach Kasper Hjulmand arrive on the back of stellar domestic campaigns with their clubs. It all bodes rather well ahead of embarking on their first stint in League A of UEFA’s Nations League.

Ultimately the Danes are here on account of their previous efforts in the competition, when in 2018 they topped their group in League B to claim the one and only promotion berth at the expense of Republic of Ireland and Wales. That was under Age Hareide who, as recently as this summer, has been replaced by 48-year-old Hjulmand – a former Nordsjaelland coach with no prior experience of managing at international level.

Talk about a baptism of fire for the new man in charge. Belgium are widely regarded as one of the most well-rounded outfits around. So too, though, are the Danes, who, with the likes of Kasper Schmeichal, Christian Eriksen and Kasper Dolberg in their ranks, will be keen to preserve not only their current unbeaten run but also that which has seen them avoid defeat in their own country since October 2016 (18 games: W10 D8).


Kasper Dolberg To Score



Belgium Preview – Devilish Belgians are difficult to contain?

Roberto Martinez inspired his supremely talented Belgium team to a flawless Euro 2020 Qualifying campaign, winning all ten qualifiers by a combined aggregate of 40-3, which is truly remarkable even when taken into account that the quality of opposition (Russia and Scotland being the only two nations ranked inside the world’s top 50) wasn’t exactly the best. They didn’t have it all their own way in this competition, though.

Two years ago Belgium failed to make it out of their group, one that Switzerland triumphed in after edging out The Red Devils by virtue of the head-to-head rule – the Swiss’ stunning 5-2 victory in Lucerne in the final fixture ultimately costing the Belgians a spot in the semi-finals. To this day that remains their sole loss since the 2018 World Cup in Russia, a run of sixteen games (W14 D1 L1).

Victory on Saturday, meanwhile, would represent win number eleven in a row. With a majestic Kevin de Bruyne pulling the strings in midfield, Eden Hazard troubling full-backs and Romelu Lukaku bullying defenders, Belgium’s awe-inspiring attack has averaged four goals a game across their last ten matches. A team capable of putting four past Russia and Scotland, away from home, during Euro 2020 qualification.

Denmark Vs Belgium Betting Advice

The Danes are four games unbeaten versus Belgium, winning three. Considering the most recent of those dates back to 2000, however, reading anything into this is probably futile. Even so, Denmark command respect. A recent change of coach is dubious, though, as it means a team that went its last 15 matches without losing under the previous manager potentially having to adapt to a new set-up.


Denmark Vs Belgium – Key Facts

  • The Danes haven’t been beaten in Denmark since losing 1-0 to Montenegro in 2016, a run of eighteen games (W10 D8) without a defeat on home soil.
  • Ten consecutive victories for Belgium, all accumulated in their cakewalk of a qualifying campaign for Euro 2020 in which they scored 40 goals for the loss of only three.
  • Belgium would last record a victory over Denmark in May 1971, with the Danes unbeaten in four (W3 D1) ever since.


Preference, therefore, is for Belgium, who were irrepressible during their recent qualifying campaign for Euro 2020, claiming ten consecutive victories whilst averaging four goals a game. I’d be surprised if there wasn’t some sort of resistance from the hosts, though, who have goals in them as well – forward Kasper Dolberg has a bright future ahead of him and has scored in both Ligue 1 appearances for Nice this season – and seldom lose in their own backyard.
