Denmark will look to bounce back from a shock defeat at the hands of Switzerland when they face Belarus tomorrow.
The Danes were fancied to beat the Swiss but went down 1-0 in their opening match of the European U21 Championship.
However, despite that loss, Keld Bordinggaard’s men go into the tie as favourites yet again, with bwin offering football betting enthusiasts odds of 7/10 on the home win.
Those expecting Denmark to be nervous following the result of their last tie could be tempted to back the stalemate, which is currently priced at 12/5.
However, despite cruising to a 2-0 win over Iceland last time out, Belarus offer decent returns for the win at odds of 17/5.
Bordinggaard will be attempting to coax a better performance out of his side this time round after his team turned in a lacklustre display against the Swiss.
With a host of players dotted around the continent when on domestic duty, the manager will be hoping the various styles of play picked up by his team can gel together at the Aarhus Stadion.
While home advantage did not work in the Danes’ favour in their opening match, Bordingaard will insist that the likes of Ajax duo Nicolai Boilesen and Christian Eriksen, Villarreal’s Nicki Billie Nielsen and Mikkel Andersen of Juventus increase their work-rate for the visit of Georgi Kondratiev’s Belarusians.
However, while Denmark are sweating over the form of their key players, Belarus boast some front men playing at the peak of their game.
Both Maksim Skavysh and Vladimir Yurchenko have three goals to their international resumes after scoring in the 2-0 win over Iceland.
Skavysh especially showed the impact he can have on the game after scoring the winner within ten minutes of coming off the bench.
That said, the fact remains that Denmark are clear favourites to snatch a win, which could tempt a number of punters to look at the handicap betting to improve the odds.
By gifting a 2-0 lead to Belarus from the off, fans will see the odds of a home win move to 5/1, while the draw becomes a 4/1 shot. By using the free £25 bet bwin is offering new customers on the latter of these two, punters could see a return of £125.
There are also odds available on a number of goal bets, with U21 betting fans able to back the away side to score two goals again at 17/4.
With the game likely to be a tight affair, any win should come via a narrow margin, which could see a lot of the sensible money placed on a 1-0 victory.
Backing the home side to win by this scoreline is priced at 25/4, while an identical away victory offers odds of 21/2.
