Wales vs Denmark: Dragons can roar to top of group

Wales vs Denmark: Dragons can roar to top of group

Kick-off: 1945, 16/11/2018

Stadium: Cardiff City Stadium

TV: Sky Sports

Wales can earn promotion in the Nations League if beating Denmark in Cardiff and are rated a value bet to achieve that feat.

The Dragons went down 2-0 when these teams met in Aarhus a couple of months ago but home and away wins over Republic of Ireland have kept them in the hunt for top spot.

Ryan Giggs is in charge of a progressive outfit and 8/5 for them to avenge that loss in Scandinavia is our opening Wales vs Denmark betting tips.

A Look At Wales’ Betting Odds

Harry Wilson’s fine free-kick proved enough to give Wales a 1-0 success in Dublin last time out, while Tom Lawrence and James Chester went close to extending the advantage.

Wilson is one of several youngsters to have caught the eye since Giggs took charge, with Bournemouth’s David Brooks and Ethan Ampadu of Chelsea other hot prospects.

Gareth Bale is back fit and firing for Real Madrid after missing the trip to Ireland, while Burnley forward Sam Vokes is also in decent form.

With Stoke defender Ashley Williams and Crystal Palace keeper Wayne Hennessey holding things together at the back, this is a well-balanced team right now.

Playing at Cardiff City Stadium should guarantee a great atmosphere and we like 5/1 for Vokes to break the deadlock from the Wales vs Denmark odds.

A Look At Denmark’s Betting Odds

Denmark also have a strong spine to their side, starting with Leicester shot-stopper Kasper Schmeichel between the sticks.

Sevilla’s Simon Kjaer is supported by Andreas Christensen of Chelsea in defence, while Borussia Dortmund’s Thomas Delaney and Christian Eriksen of Tottenham are high-class midfielders.

RB Leipzig’s Yussuf Poulsen and Martin Braithwaite of Middlesbrough are a threat up front, so Wales will have to earn this win.

Eriksen’s double did the damage in the September encounter, although the second strike did come from a dubious penalty decision.

The Danes have looked less comfortable on the road recently, losing 3-0 in a friendly in Slovakia and drawing 0-0 with Ireland in Dublin.

That makes them worth taking on here and 10/1 for a 2-1 home victory is added to our Wales vs Denmark betting tips.
