Denmark’s star players will take to the field for their Nations League opener after the Danish Football Association (DBU) announced a temporary truce.
Wales warmed up for the clash by producing an impressive display in a 4-1 win over Republic of Ireland at the Cardiff City Stadium.
We feel Ryan Giggs’ confident side can take advantage of the turmoil in the Danish ranks and 13/5 they emerge victorious is our first Denmark vs Wales prediction.
A Look At Denmark’s Betting Odds
Denmark fell to a 3-0 friendly defeat in Slovakia on Wednesday after being forced to select a starting XI of futsal and Danish lower league players.
They were left with a severely weakened team after a dispute between the DBU and its players over commercial image rights. Coach Age Hareide was also absent.
The likes of Christian Eriksen and Kasper Schmeichel, among others, are refusing to sign a new agreement with the national team but a short-term deal has been reached to prevent a similar situation unfolding against Wales.
DBU president Jesper Moller said in a statement: “It is good for the national team and for everyone in Danish football that we can play the important Nations League match with the right national team and again focus on the sport.”
A Look At Wales’ Betting Odds
Giggs had a homecoming to remember as Wales began their campaign in style with a demolition of the Irish.
Tom Lawrence, Gareth Bale – with his 30th goal for Wales – Aaron Ramsey and Connor Roberts were on target before Republic substitute Shaun Williams provided some cheer for the visitors.
The victory might not have erased the pain of Wales’ World Cup elimination last October when the Republic won 1-0 at the same venue.
But the manner of the performance, with talented youngsters Ethan Ampadu and David Brooks excelling on their first competitive starts and Bale at his brilliant best, gave a tantalising glimpse of the bright future that could lie ahead under Giggs.
The former Manchester United winger beamed: “I talked about expressing themselves and trusting each other, and that’s what I got. We could have scored more, but to get four in any game is special. Not many teams could have lived with us. I think we’d have given anyone a game.”
This could be an open contest and on that basis we are including over 2.5 goals in the game at 13/10 as the last of our Denmark vs Wales tips.
Slovakia 3-0 DENMARK –
WALES 4-1 Republic of Ireland – Lawrence, Bale, Ramsey, Roberts
Head-to-head: Denmark 0-1 Wales, Wales 0-2 Denmark, Denmark 1-2 Wales
