Denmark vs Ireland Match Prediction

By Dean Carr

Denmark host the Republic of Ireland at the Telia Parken on 11/11/17 as both teams look to qualify for next summer’s World Cup. Read on for a full match preview complete with betting tips and predictions.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Denmark are a solid outfit at home, only losing once in their last ten games in Copenhagen. As for Ireland, they are unbeaten in their last six European away games, last losing on the continent in October 2015 in a 2-1 loss to Poland. However, I’m expecting the home side to take a narrow advantage heading into the second leg in Dublin.

Denmark Preview

One thing this Denmark side can promise to provide is a stern challenge, having gone unbeaten in each of their last nine games with four wins and five draws. During that time they have faced the likes of Germany, Poland and Montenegro as they finished 2nd in Group E, with Poland running out group winners by five points. Denmark meanwhile finished with six wins, two draws and two defeats, as well as boasting the best defensive record in the group with just eight goals conceded in 10 matches. There is plenty of quality within this squad, most notably in Christian Eriksen who will be the key man for the Danes charged with the responsibility of being their main playmaker. It is he who the Irish will have to stop if they hope to get a positive result in Copenhagen on Saturday night, with the Spurs man in excellent form at this moment in time. Having failed to qualify for two of the last three World Cups and European Championships, this will be a huge opportunity for the Danes to end what has been an underwhelming spell for the national side in recent years. Currently 19th in the FIFA World Rankings, Denmark are favourites heading into this clash.

Denmark Team News

Striker Kasper Dolberg has been left out of the squad after struggling for form with Ajax.

Ireland Preview

Republic of Ireland ultimately reached this stage of the competition after coming through a do-or-die clash with Wales, earning a 1-0 win in Cardiff to snatch second place in Group D thanks to James McLean’s strike. Martin O’Neill’s side had no choice but to win if they wished to keep their World Cup dreams alive and in doing so maintained their recent run of producing results and performances when it matters most. In recent times alone, the Irish defeated Bosnia and Herzegovina over two legs to qualify for Euro 2016 and also overcame Italy in the group stages of that tournament to make it to the knockout stages. Ireland last reached the World Cup in 2002, having been robbed of a trip to South Africa in 2010 by France. Ireland have reached the knockout stages of all three of the World Cup finals they have competed in and will be a tough opponent for any team they face. Unbeaten in their last six away games in Europe, the task here will be simple - give themselves a chance of qualifying at the return leg in Dublin.

Ireland Team News

Captain Seamus Coleman, James McCarthy and Jonathan Walters all miss out for Ireland through injury.
