Wales vs Denmark Prediction & Match Preview

Wales vs Denmark
UEFA Nations League
Date: Friday, 16 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium (Cardiff).

Wales and Denmark take on each other in an affair which will likely determine the group winner on Friday evening at Cardiff City Stadium. The Dragons do hold the very top of the standings after two wins and a loss in three games so far. However, the lone loss came just against Denmark in the second round, meaning a defeat here would drop them down to second place as the visitors are the one with a game in hand and four points from two group matches so far.

Ryan Giggs’ men pulled off a huge victory a month ago when they saw off local rivals Republic of Ireland 0-1 at Aviva Stadium. The win is big because of the fact the former Man Utd star was without his main stars Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey on the occasion. This duo will be back in squad for this highly-important home tie with the Danes and we could be in for a spectacular affair in Cardiff.

Wales vs Denmark: Head-to-head

Wales have a chance to make it all square at five wins apiece ahead of their landmark 10th encounter with Denmark.

It is interesting to note that only one of past seven head to head affairs saw goals scored at both ends.

The 1-0 scoreline happened in five of nine head to head contests between the two teams.

Denmark took a 2-0 victory thanks to a Christian Eriksen brace when teams played each other at the start of the campaign in mid-September in Copenhagen.

Wales vs Denmark: Prediction

The visitors will also come into this one in a very strong line-up featuring Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen and Dortmund’s Thomas Delaney at the center of the park. We have to mention their impressive defensive form as the team head into this after keeping three consecutive clean sheets. Given the match represents the direct battle for the top spot in the group, we expect a very tight and nervous affair with very few goal-scoring opportunities.

Only one of last 12 games Denmark played saw three or more goals scored. Knowing about Wales’ defensive-minded mentality, we just have to call the Under 2.5 goals FT bet a genuine banker at the odds of 1.53. Braver tipsters can try with Wales to win 1-0 at 6.50.
