Denmark vs Wales
UEFA Nations League
Date: Sunday 9th September 2018
Kick off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Ceres Park (Aarhus).
It’s been chaos for the Denmark national team in the last few weeks with the entire first squad ready to pull out of this game because of a dispute with the Danish FA over image rights. At one point Wales were getting ready to play a B side comprising of futsal players and even some amateurs. Now John Jensen has been drafted into coach the national side on a temporary basis and the players have reached an agreement for now with the FA, so Denmark’s A team will now face Wales.
Because of this Denmark who are at home have been installed as the favourites to win but have not had the proper preparation coming into this match. This includes losing a friendly this month to Slovakia 3-0. Indeed Denmark have not won their last 4 games.
Wales look upbeat and confident under Coach Ryan Giggs and this was underlined in their 4-1 demolition of Republic of Ireland on Thursday night in this competition. In Gareth Bale the side have one of the best players in the world and they will not be afraid to come to Denmark and try and get a result.
Wales have not lost a game for almost a year and have conceded just 1 goal in 2018 from the 3 matches that they have played which came in their last match.
Denmark vs Wales: Head to Head
The nations have played each other just once before which was in 2008 where the match ended 1-0 to Wales.
Denmark vs Wales: Prediction
Denmark have quality players and in a normal situation would rightly be favourites to win this game. But Wales will approach this game in a more professional manner and have a lot of confidence after scoring 4 goals on Thursday. Denmark are not in the right frame of mind to play this game and the players would rather not.
They will have their chances but Wales is clearly the better team and are a superb price to get the win. The value is here for the away side and that is the option we will be taking on.
