Denmark v Republic Of Ireland, Friday, June 7th, 7:45pm

European Championship 2020 Qualifier

Form:

Denmark who are currently ranked 10th in the FIFA world rankings take on Rep Of Ireland who are 29th in the same world rankings.

This tells us that there is a bit of a gulf in class between the sides but having faced each other twice at the end of 2018 in the UEFA Nations League and both of those games ending in 0-0 draws, this is obviously not the case at all.

In saying that, Rep of Ireland never really looked like getting a win in either game but at the same time they’re opponents were not capable of breaking them down.

Denmark come into this Group D qualifier in third place in the group having played out a dramatic 3-3 draw away to Switzerland back in March of this year.

The Danes were 3-0 down in that game before scoring three times in the final six minutes to get an unlikely point.

Rep of Ireland are currently top of the group with two wins from their opening two group games.

That being said they were two narrow 1-0 wins over Gibraltar and Georgia and they now face a much sterner task against these opponents.

Head-To-Heads

The sides are meeting each other for the 18th time in this match, with Denmark on four wins, Rep of Ireland with five wins and eight draws.

Three of the last four meetings between these two sides have finished in 0-0 draws, with the other match finishing in a comprehensive 5-1 away win for Denmark at the Aviva Stadium back in November 2017.

The last two 0-0 meetings of these countries have seen a disappointing total of five shots on target over both games, with nine corners and six yellow cards.

The Match:

Denmark’s last eight consecutive home matches including friendlies have produced under 2.5 goals. This trend may well continue as they face a Rep of Ireland side who will most likely be set-up defensively by manager Mick McCarthy.

Republic of Ireland manager Mick McCarthy has stated in a recent interview that he would take hand and all if he was offered a share of the spoils against Denmark and Switzerland which indicates his intentions of making sure this will be a tight affair.

Denmark’s last eight consecutive home matches including friendlies have produced under 2.5 goals. This trend may well continue as they face a Rep of Ireland side who will most likely be set-up defensively by manager Mick McCarthy.

Verdict:

Total match goals to be under 2.5 goals on recent evidence is advised at 1/2

Rep Of Ireland in the Draw No Bet market at 18/5
