Kosovo vs Denmark
Date: Thursday, 21 March 2019
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Stadiumi Fadil Vokrri (Prishtina).
Kosovo and Denmark will test each other before the kick off to European Championship Qualification campaign in their respective groups.
The friendly is scheduled for Thursday evening at Stadiumi Fadil Vokkri in Prishtina where the hosts will try and make an upset against a high-quality opposition to boost up the confidence ahead of maiden qualifier against Bulgaria next Tuesday.
Both Kosovo and Denmark enjoyed fine campaigns in the inaugural edition of the UEFA Nations League last year.
The hosts won four and drew two of six matches to top the Group 3 of League D with an impressive goal difference of 15-2 in the process. They thus surprised the likes of Azerbaijan who came runners-up in the group, while Faroe Islands and Malta took last two positions.

This will be the first ever head to head meeting between the two likes.
Kosovo vs Denmark: Prediction
Tin Soldiers were also quite impressive in the League B where they topped the group with Wales and Republic of Ireland. Denmark claimed two wins over Wales and played two draws to Republic of Ireland which was enough for the top-spot finish in the group.
The head coach Age Hareide was thrilled with his men’s superb defensive displays as Denmark only allowed one goal in these four matches. The Norwegian coach is expected to mix up his cards here, but he generally has most of main stars (including Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen) on disposal.
This is not the case with Bernard Challandes who will be without Lazio’s midfielder Valon Berisha. Kosovo’s main star and team’s vice captain is injured and will miss both this friendly and Tuesday’s qualifier against Bulgaria.
Denmark are heavy favourites because of the obvious difference in quality, but we do not expect a goal fest as Kosovo showed their defensive strength in both Nations League and the latest set of World Cup qualifiers. Under 2.5 goals FT is our main betting recommendation at the odds of 1.66.
