Denmark are a dogged and determined outfit on home turf, so Saturday’s Nations League clash with Belgium promises to be a tight tussle.
The Danes have gone 16 games without defeat in front of their own fans and can hopefully extend that sequence at an empty Parken in Copenhagen.
Punters can get 9/10 for the hosts not to lose and that is our opening Denmark vs Belgium prediction.
A Look At Denmark’s Betting Odds
Denmark finished top of Group B4 in this tournament two years ago, claiming a couple of wins over Wales and drawing twice with Republic of Ireland.
The Danes also went through their Euro 2020 qualifying pool unbeaten when finishing as runners-up behind Switzerland, securing three wins and a draw at home.
Kasper Hjulmand now comes in to replace respected head coach Age Hareide, having been earmarked as his successor last summer.
He inherits a squad that possibly lacks strength in depth, but has a useful first XI with a very strong spine.
Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel has two smart central defenders in front of him in AC Milan’s Simon Kjaer and Andreas Christensen of Chelsea.
Christian Eriksen, Thomas Delaney and Tottenham new boy Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg make up a well-balanced midfield.
Up front, Barcelona recruit Martin Braithwaite and RB Leipzig playmaker Yussuf Poulsen are among the options.
This is obviously a tough test, but we like 14/5 for a draw from the Denmark vs Belgium odds.
A Look At Belgium’s Betting Odds
Belgium just missed out on reaching the final four of this event last time, enjoying three wins but being pipped by Switzerland on goal difference after a bizarre 5-2 away loss.
There were no slip-ups in Euro 2020 qualifying, as the Red Devils rattled off 10 consecutive victories to finish clear of Russia and Scotland.
Roberto Martinez’s side oozes class going forward, with the likes of Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne creating chances for Romelu Lukaku and Dries Mertens.
There is just a concern that Belgium’s defence is on a downward curve following the retirement of Vincent Kompany, though.
Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld are both the wrong side of 30, along with holding midfielder Axel Witsel.
This is the kind of game and time of year where some of those veterans may just choose to look after themselves.
Let’s add 27/4 for a 1-1 stalemate to our Denmark vs Belgium betting tips.
Republic of Ireland 1-1 DENMARK – Braithwaite
BELGIUM 6-1 Cyprus – Benteke (2), De Bruyne (2), Carrasco, Christoforou (og)
Head-to-head: Denmark 2-2 Belgium, Belgium 1-3 Denmark, Denmark 3-1 Belgium, Belgium 3-0 Denmark
