Reason For Denmark vs Switzerland Betting Tips
2nd meets 3rd in Group D when Denmark host Switzerland in a potentially pivotal Euro 2020 qualification tie in Copenhagen this weekend.
The Danes currently occupy the second automatic qualification spot behind group leaders Republic of Ireland, though Switzerland sit just one place and one point below them having played one game less.
Denmark’s qualification campaign has largely been a tale of frustration so far. The Danes are unbeaten in five matches, though three draws during that sequence means that their points haul of nine isn’t quite as high as it might have been.
Sharing the spoils with Group D rivals Switzerland and Ireland on match-days one and two weren’t disastrous outcomes by any stretch, though their 0-0 draw in Georgia last month had the look of a qualification scuppering result.
Manager Åge Hareide will be fully aware then, of the importance of Saturday’s game against Switzerland, and though Denmark take a lengthy 11-match unbeaten run into this weekend’s fixture, the Danes’ frustrating inability to turn draws into wins remains a huge worry.
In total, Denmark drew six of those 11 matches – a run that included a 3-3 draw with Switzerland in the team’s Group D fixture in March.
The Swiss also hold an undefeated record in Group D after four matches, winning two and drawing two of their opening quartet of qualification contests.
Having played one game less than Denmark, Switzerland will know that avoiding defeat in Copenhagen on Saturday would be set them up nicely for a second-place finish in Group D, and with that in mind, manager Vladimir Petković is likely to set up his team with a certain degree of caution.
This well-drilled Switzerland outfit were beaten in only three of their last 13 international away games, and we think they have the tactical discipline and personnel to avoid defeat again this weekend in Denmark.
Denmark have become something of an international draw specialist, finishing level in five of their most recent seven games overall since November last year, and we expect the Danes finish all square with Switzerland again this weekend in a battle between two of Group D’s unbeaten teams.
Switzerland’s ability to keep things tight on the road should hold them in good stead in Copenhagen – the Swiss conceded one or fewer goals in 10 of their last 13 away matches, and we think they can hold the Danes to a 1-1 draw on Saturday.
