Denmark vs Faroe Islands
Date: Wednesday, 7th October 2020
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue MCH Arena (Herning).
After a winless start to their UEFA Nations League campaign, Denmark have a chance to polish their boots against European minnows Faroe Islands in the friendly scheduled on Wednesday.
Grouped in a tough pool to be honest, the Danes fell to a 0-2 loss to Belgium before holding England to a goalless draw after 4 days. Their next group match is away at at Iceland on coming Sunday followed by the trip to England next Wednesday.
On the other hand, Faroe Islands will be content after bagging back-to-back wins in their group, though those came against opponents of similar quality – Malta and Andorra. Their next opponent in the competition is the highest ranked team in the group Latvia, the friendly against Denmark is perfect to prepare for the occasion.
It is not a surprise that bookies are pricing Denmark as overwhelming favorites at 1.18 odd, while Faroe Islands are priced at 18.00 to mount an upset and draw in the region of 7.00 odd.
Denmark vs Faroe Islands Head-to-head
As mentioned earlier their last meeting 10 years ago, on August 2020 in a friendly at Faroe Islands. The match saw a 2-0 scoreline at full-time in the favour of the Danes.
The other two meeting in our records was at the 1990/91 Euro qualifiers. Denmark won 4-1 at home and 4-0 away in the group fixtures.
Denmark vs Faroe Islands Prediction
I believe there is not a lot to write about this fixture and we are in agreement with the fact that this is a stroll in the park for Denmark.
Although, it is certain that Kasper Hjulmand will rest some key players for this match, we must expect a strong performance from the hosts. They will be keen to get back to winning ways before UEFA Nations League fixtures and want to avoid any kind of humiliation at their home soil.
This is why, I will take Over 2.5 goals price 1.60 odd as the safe pick, which I also believe is a value bet in my opinion since Faroe Islands are 91 places behind the Danes in FIFA ranking.
Brave punters chasing long odds may take a good look at the Asian Handicap -2.5 win for the hosts or European Handicap -2 priced at 2.20 and 2.40 odds respectively.
