Republic of Ireland v Denmark

BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW

On Saturday night, the Republic of Ireland host Denmark in the Nations League B, as the visitors attempt to make it two wins out of two in Group 4 of the competition. 

The Republic of Ireland have been in poor form of late, winning just one of their last seven international games. To make matters worse Martin O’Neill’s team have lost four of their last six outings. 

Ireland kicked off their Nations League campaign with a 4-1 defeat in Wales. The home side followed that defeat up with a 1-1 draw against Poland in a friendly match. 

The home side’s recent games have been relatively low scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in eight of their last 11 games. 

Ireland have a mixed recent record on home soil, but a record of three wins from their last eight home games is not exactly a stellar one. 

Denmark heads into this game in inconsistent form. However, the Scandinavians are hard to beat, suffering just one defeat in five outings in 90 minutes. The visitors kicked off their Nations League campaign with a 2-0 win over Wales. 

The Danes recent games have been low scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in nine of their last ten international outings. 

The visitors have been hard to beat on their travels, suffering just one defeat in their last eight outings. However, they have also won just four of those eight away games. 

Team News

Stalwarts Seamus Coleman and Jon Walters are sidelined for Ireland. The likes of Greg Cunningham, Alan Judge, Ritchie Towell and Daryl Horgan were all cut from the provisional squad for this game. 

Denmark are without Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen due to injury, while the likes of Daniel Wass and Nicklas Bendtner have also been omitted from the squad. 

Match Prediction

Denmark recorded a comfortable 5-1 win over Ireland in a World Cup play-off last time these two teams met, but their star that night Christian Eriksen is out due to injury. This game could be a tight one, probably ending in a draw.
