Ireland vs Denmark Prediction
A 2-0 defeat in their most recent matchup against Switzerland, on the road, has put Ireland’s chances of progressing in jeopardy. The hosts are now without a taste of success in their last three games in a row and have garnered no more than three points from a possible nine.
Nevertheless, the home side are still leading the ladder with twelve points to their name. However, with a game in hand for both Denmark and Switzerland, the hosts certainly have their work cut out for them.
On the other hand, Denmark are unbeaten in their last four games, the most recent of which was a 1-0 win over Switzerland at home. The visitors have also looked sharp in the outings, and have so far avoided a defeat in their last three.
However, two of those three trips on the road, witnessed the guests salvage no more than a point. It is also worth mentioning that the visiting contingent managed no more than a draw in their most last visit to Irish soil as well.
Meanwhile, Ireland have picked up the win in two of their previous three games here. Taking into account that their h2h history has also been rich with both teams sharing the spoils, the safest punt in this one would have to be a double chance backing the hosts.
Furthermore, Ireland’s backline have been hard to breach on home soil. The squad have conceded just once so far, and have kept a clean sheet twice in the process as well. With their previous three overall h2h clashes also featuring fewer than 2.5 goals on the final scorecards, expect goals to be scarce this Monday.
