Date: Tuesday, 14th November 2017
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Aviva Stadium (Dublin).
Ireland earned a huge result at Denmark on Saturday and they have the perfect chance to finish off the tie at their own turf on Tuesday night.
Denmark dominated the first leg at the Telia Parken but couldn’t find the decisive goal that could have put them in the driving seat before the trip to Dublin. The Danes had an excellent first half which saw them came close to scoring at numerous occasions. However, the threats wore-off in the second half. The combination of neat work from Irish goal-keeper Darren Randolph and poor finishing give Martin O’Neill and his team an excellent chance in the second leg when they restart the match level on 0-0.
Ireland are unbeaten in their last three qualification fixtures with 2 wins and a draws. They haven’t conceded a goal in the process.
The Boys in Green lost just one of their 11 qualifying matches this term with the wins and draws levelled at 5 each.
At home, Martin O’Neill’s men have a moderate record. They won 2, drew 2 and lost 1. However, those two wins came against extremely poor sides like Georgia and Moldova.
Denmark are unbeaten in their last 8 qualifying fixtures since losing back-to-back games to Poland and Montenegro in October. They won 5 and drew 3 in the period.
The away record is even better with wins in the last 3 and a draw in the four match unbeaten run.

Ireland vs Denmark: Predictions
This tie is evenly poised as the restart the proceedings at Dublin. The home advantage will be a huge boost to the Irish team, but with away goal-rule playing a vital role, Denmark are very much in the contest.
Ireland’s inability to produce solid performances against strong sides in one reason that make me thing Denmark are the side with a better chance to go to the World Cups. A 1-1 draw or any scored draw will be enough for the Danes. The visitors had scored 10 goals from their 5 away trips this term and there is every reason to think that they are going to qualify with a draw here.
Correct Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw at 6.00 odd.
