18th November 2020 – 20:45, King Baudouin Stadium, Brussels
The direct clash between Belgium and Denmark on Wednesday evening will decide the winner of Group 2 of the UEFA Nations League. The hosts have a two-point advantage, meaning that the away side will need to chase a victory.
Match Preview & Team News
Belgium made a crucial step toward a place in the playoffs after beating England on Sunday. Two goals in the first 25 minutes of the game brought them three vital points and kicked the Three Lions out of the race for the top spot. Roberto Martinez’s side tied three wins in a row, and in each of those games, they scored twice. The hosts suffered just one defeat in the past two years, and besides that, they missed the chance to win only on one more occasion. Belgium was better in their previous clash back in September and celebrated a 2:0 victory. Kevin de Bruyne and the lads haven’t lost a game at the home pitch for the past four years, and if they manage to extend that run, the hosts will secure the place in playoffs.
Denmark had a slow start in the UEFA Nations League campaign, as they picked up just a point from the opening two rounds. However, Cristian Eriksen and the lads tied three wins in the competition, that propelled them to the 2nd spot. They are just two points behind their upcoming rivals, and only a victory can see them move to the top. Ebbe Sand’s side celebrated five times in a row and conceded only once during that streak. Although Denmark hasn’t been too efficient in the competition, their defense is the tightest in the group. Three points won at Wembley against England boosted their confidence, and the visitors hope for another good display.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Despite Denmark’s excellent recent form, the hosts are still considered as favorites in this clash. We believe Belgium won’t take anything for granted, and they will book another three points to seal the top spot.
Goals Market Prediction
Head to head clashes between these two sides have historically been pretty efficient. In each of them, football fans saw at least two goals, and we believe this clash could go over 2.5 margin.
