Denmark v Sweden betting tips for the 2nd leg of this Nordic Clash as the men in yellow take a slender 2-1 lead to Copenhagen. We have the 3 best bets for the game
It was inevitable that Zlatan would have sort of say in the Scandinavian derby on Saturday night and it was his penalty in the second half which gave Sweden the advantage going into this second leg.
It was the first time in 5 meetings that the Swedes had come out on top and Denmark need at least a goal to stand any chance of making to France 2016.
They were 2-0 down and they managed to pull one back with 10 minutes left which showed there is plenty of fight in the side going into this huge match in Copenhagen.
It will be fascinating to see how this one pans out as a 1-0 win would send Denmark through, but it’s a hugely risky strategy against a Swedish side, who have plenty of talent, but were far from clinical on their own turf.
Sweden don’t have a great away record which sets this tie up nicely and the Danes can go into this encounter confident they can get the job done. Despite this record, Sweden are playing well and although they don’t have as many household names as in years gone by, they have won their last 3 games and there’s nothing more dangerous than a team on a roll.
Sweden haven’t kept a clean sheet against their neighbours in their last 6 attempts and it will be interesting to see how the games opens up if the home side do secure an early goal.
It didn’t look like we were going to get both teams scoring in Hungary v Norway on Sunday night, but the game became stretched and the urgency increased as Norway’s need for a goal did likewise.
I think we could see a similar story here, Sweden will be determined to take the sting out the game early on and stop Denmark from scoring too soon in the game, thus dampening and nullifying vociferous home support.
With so much at stake, coupled with the rivalry of the two sides, I think both sides will find the net In the 90 minutes.
The first of my Denmark v Sweden betting tips is Both Teams to Score? Yes. It can be backed at even money with Coral
Sweden have called in defensive reinforcements to try and protect their slender lead, but the Danes can be pretty potent and I don’t think it will be enough.
Their defence was always looking vulnerable following the loss Mikael Antonsson and once Nicolai Jorgenson had pulled one back, they always looked on the backfoot.
I think buoyed by the home crowd, Denmark can get through, whether that’s in normal time or with an additional 30.
The second of my Denmark v Sweden betting tips is for Denmark to qualify. It can be backed at 6/5 with Coral
Denmark need at least 1 goal, they should easily find it. Sweden will be defending for their lives and they may be vulnerable if they sit too deep. Denmark have scored against USA (3 times) and twice against Serbia and Montenegro. They should have enough goals in them to find their way past Sweden and they may notch a couple.
The third of my Denmark v Sweden betting tips is for Denmark to score 2 or more goals. It can backed at 5/4 at Skybet
