Denmark vs Austria
Date: Tuesday, 16 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: MCH Arena (Herning).
Denmark look to have successfully overcome crisis with sponsors which caused first-team regulars skip September’s friendly with Slovakia. The Tin Soldiers lost the match 3-0, but they bounced back instantly beating Wales 2-0 at home at the start of their UEFA Nations League campaign.
Tottenham’s star man Christian Eriksen was the one who inspired the victory over Gareth Bale & company with a second-half brace. The stalwart midfielder was not with the team on Friday evening against Republic of Ireland. He skipped the match through injury and his absence affected the lack of creativity in the build-up play. We were thus not surprised to see Danes drawing 0-0 to Republic of Ireland in their second Nations League affair.
Nonetheless, Denmark are in good position as they top their respective group ahead of Wales and Republic of Ireland with four points won so far in the competition. Can they keep the good form going and pick up a result on Tuesday evening when Austria come to visit MCH Arena in Herning for a friendly?
Denmark vs Austria: Head-to-head
- This will only be the fourth head to head encounter between the two teams.
- Denmark came on top both home and away back in EURO 1992 Qualifications (2-1 and 3-0).
- Austria bagged their inaugural victory eight years ago in a friendly (2-1).
Denmark vs Austria: Prediction
Das Team got off to a slower start to their Nations League campaign falling 1-0 to Bosnia-Herzegovina last month. They, however, got it up and running on Friday evening beating Northern Ireland 1-0 at home thanks to a goal from West Ham united attacker Marko Arnautovic.
Austria were on a strong series of results before the mentioned loss to Bosnia-Herzegovina and they are a side generally considered to be very tough to break down. Knowing that Denmark rarely shipped goals of late, the Under 2.5 goals FT has to be the main betting option here. Braver punters can even shoot for the goalless draw at 7.50.
