Not long now until Euro - Qualifiers action on Monday when Northern Ireland will be taking on Denmark.
Full predictions, pre-match stats and user poll for Northern Ireland v Denmark are shown on this page (inc. the best betting odds).
Northern Ireland will be hoping for a better result following the 4-0 Euro - Qualifiers loss in their previous game against Finland.
Joel Pohjanpalo (42'), Daniel Håkans (48'), Teemu Pukki (74') and Robin Lod (88') scored for Finland.
It has not been often in recent times that Northern Ireland have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that Northern Ireland have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, shipping 11 goals in the process.
Denmark head into the meeting after a 2-1 Euro - Qualifiers win with the downing of Slovenia in their most recent game.
For Denmark, goals were scored by Joakim Mæhle (26') and Thomas Delaney (54'). Erik Janža (30') was the scorer for Slovenia.
A run of steadfast showings from the Denmark defence has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 4 from their last 6 outings combined. Over that same time, their own attack force has managed to score 13. Such a trend might not be carried forward into this next game, though.
Head to head
The previous league encounter between the two was Euro - Qualifiers match day 3 on 16/06/2023 when the final score was Denmark 1-0 Northern Ireland.
The match was refereed by Daniel Stefanski.
Team News: Northern Ireland
The Northern Ireland boss Michael O'Neill doesn’t have any fitness worries at all coming into this match thanks to a fully healthy group to pick from.
We think that Green and White Army will possibly go for a 4-5-1 formation for this game, beginning the first half with Conor Hazard, Eoin Toal, Patrick McNair, Daniel Ballard, Trai Hume, Ross McCausland, George Saville, Jordan Thompson, Isaac Price, Jamal Lewis and Dion Charles.
Team News: Denmark
Owing to a completely injury-free group to pick from, the Denmark boss Kasper Hjulmand does not have any fitness concerns at all before this game.
From our viewpoint, De Rød-Hvide will likely utilise a 5-3-2 system, settling for Kasper Schmeichel, Joachim Andersen, Andreas Christensen, Jannik Vestergaard, Joakim Maehle, Rasmus Kristensen, P. Hoejbjerg, Thomas Delaney, Mathias Jensen, Jonas Wind and Yussuf Poulsen.
We’re of the opinion that Northern Ireland have the capability to find the back of the net against this Denmark lineup, although one goal likely won’t be enough to prevent defeat.
Therefore, we’re predicting a very close game with a 1-2 winning score for Denmark when the full-time whistle blows. Hopefully this is a good one.
