Denmark vs Belgium
UEFA Nations League
Date: Saturday, 5 September 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Telia Parken.
Les Diables Rouges are another exciting team to follow and keep hopes on, for the foreseeable future. And it’s no wonder why – any team that could boast of having two of the best playmakers in the world – Kevin De Bruyne, and Eden Hazard, are easily an instant attraction and heavy favorites.
They simply had torn apart all their opposition in the recently-concluded Euro Qualifiers, where they recorded ten wins out of ten games, and scored a total of 40 goals in the process. Even more impressive is the fact that they had conceded a total of just three goals all throughout the tournament.
Moreover, they also were the third-placed team in the 2018 World Cup, and had narrowly missed out on making the final.
Meanwhile, all the Danish Dynamite could show in return for the firepower of their counterparts, is the presence of Christian Eriksen.
While he himself is a great player, the abundance of talent on the other roster would be simply too much to handle.
Furthermore, after a single game of madness in the previous edition of the competition cost Roberto Martinez’s men a place in the finals (a surprising loss against Switzerland), they are determined to make amends this time around.
As such, expect Belgium to have a huge upper hand this Saturday.
Denmark vs Belgium: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The previous five games in a row had goals from both teams.
- The former four fixtures on the trot had four or more goals.
- It’s been almost 50 years since the Dynamites have lost against this opponent.
- The latest encounter between the two had ended in a 2-2 draw.
Denmark vs Belgium: Prediction
Martinez’s men have been seemingly unstoppable lately. They have been scoring for fun, and they are determined to make something out of the huge talent pool they have got.
They are included in the same group as that of England, and the Three Lions are taking on Iceland this weekend, and will be expected to win. As such, Hazard and his boys have no other option but to secure the three points this Saturday.
Moreover, after being denied an entry into the finals due to their inferior goal difference, Martinez’s men will be eager to score in plenty as well. And for a team that scored 40 goals from their 10 fixtures in the Euro Qualifiers, finding the back of the net against the Dynamites would not be that big of a task.
Going on, they are on a ten-game winning run, and disregarding the freak loss against Switzerland in the inaugural edition of the Nations League, and the 1-0 loss against France in the World Cup semis, this team has not lost in the past four years.
On the other hand, their counterparts might be a little complacent, as they have not had the chance to take on any good team at all in the recent past.
Considering all these observations, expect a winning performance from Belgium this weekend.
