Prediction and odds for the game: England (4/6) v Denmark (4/1)
We are backing under 2.5 goals scored at odds of 10/11
When: Wednesday, 14th October 2020, Kick-off 19:45
On Wednesday night, England and Denmark go head-to-head at Wembley in Group A2 of the Nations League.
The Three Lions are unbeaten in seven international matches, having recorded six victories in the process. Last time out, Gareth Southgate’s team recorded a 2-1 home win over Belgium, despite a poor first-half display.
The game was another high-scoring England match, as eight of their last ten international matches have produced under 2.5 goals. The Three Lions have also scored at least two goals in seven of their previous ten matches.
England are currently top of Group A2 of the Nations League, having taken seven points from a possible nine in the latest edition of the new competition. They are unbeaten in seven games in the competition, with their only defeat coming against the Netherlands in extra time in the semi-final of the last Nations League tournament.
The home team have been in formidable form on home soil of late, as they have won their last nine games at Wembley while scoring at least two goals in eight of the wins.
England may recall Tottenham striker and captain Harry Kane to the starting line-up, which means that Everton’s in-form Dominic Calvert-Lewin may start the game on the substitutes bench. Aston Villa star Jack Grealish may have to settle for a place on the bench too.
The Scandinavians have suffered defeat just once in their last 19 matches, as they are currently three games unbeaten. The visitors have built their decent recent run of form on a good defensive record, as they have kept clean sheets in their last three outings. They have also kept clean sheets in eight of their previous ten international games.
Kasper Hjulmand’s team are third-place in Group A2 of the Nations League, having picked up just four points from their three matches in the new competition. Similarly to their hosts, the visitors have been difficult to beat in the new competition, losing just once in their previous seven games. They are also unbeaten in three away games in the Nations League, having recorded two wins and a draw.
The visitors have been hard to beat on their travels, as they are unbeaten in eight games on the road. Denmark have also kept clean sheets in three of their last four away games.
Both teams have been difficult teams to beat of late and this could be a tight clash. The last clash between these two teams in Denmark ended in a goalless draw. England are slight favourites to win this clash, but the visitors will not be easy opponents for Gareth Southgate’s team. We are backing the home side to record a hard-fought victory in a low-scoring clash. Therefore, the other bet we are recommending is under 2.5 goals scored.
Verdict: We are backing under 2.5 goals scored at odds of 10/11 and/or the home win at odds of 4/6. (All odds are taken from Bet365)[geosnippet id=3620]
