Denmark v Switzerland

BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW

On Saturday evening, Denmark and Switzerland go head-to-head in Copenhagen, as both teams look for a vital win in Group D of qualifying for Euro 2020.

There is very little between the two teams in the group so far. Denmark are currently second in the group on nine points, two behind group leaders the Republic of Ireland and one point clear of the visitors in the race for a top-two finish.

The home side are unbeaten in their opening five qualifiers. However, three of those games have finished in draws. In fact, the Danes have found qualifying wins hard to come by in recent campaigns, as they have won just two of their last ten qualifiers.

Denmark have a decent recent home record in qualifying, as they are unbeaten in five qualifiers on home soil while suffering just one defeat in 12 outings.

Just like the hosts, Switzerland are unbeaten in their games in Group D, but due to the Nations League they have only played four matches, recording two wins and two draws. Last time out, Vladimir Petkovic’s side recorded a 4-0 win over minnows Gibraltar. The result means that the Swiss have scored at least twice in three of their four games in the group.

Switzerland have an inconsistent recent away record in qualifying for the European Championships. However, they have won four of their last six qualifiers on their travels. Their recent away qualifiers have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in their last four outings.

TEAM NEWS

Denmark have no reported injuries. Bournemouth midfielder Philip Billing will be hoping to make his senior international debut after a solid start to life on the south coast.

For Switzerland, Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki missed out on the squad through injury, while Xherdan Shaqiri’s absence from the squad continues.

Match Prediction

This could be a vital game for both teams. I can see this being a tight and tense low-scoring draw.
