Wales out to exact revenge on Denmark in UEFA Nations League clash

Harry Wilson Wales vs Denmark UEFA Nations League soccer betting odds

Promotion to the top tier in the UEFA Nations League is at stake and Wales is in desperate need of three vital points when it hosts Denmark in Cardiff on Friday evening. A win for either side would guarantee top spot in the group and Wales must make home advantage count against a side with a disciplined and rigid defensive backline – this promises to be a closely fought affair.

SHARK BITES
  • Denmark won the corresponding fixture 2-0 back in September.
  • Wales has won two out of three previous meetings at home against Denmark.
  • Seven of the last nine meetings between these two teams have had less than 2.5 goals.

Wales must go for broke

Denmark can settle for a draw in this game, knowing that it will play a poor Ireland side next week. For Wales, in front of a passionate and vociferous crowd, this is very much do-or-die.

Rookie boss Ryan Giggs has made a promising if not spectacular start to his reign as Wales manager. There have been two victories over Ireland as well as defeats to Denmark (away) and Spain (home).

Denmark, meanwhile, has kept nine clean sheets in its last 12 games and may well set up for a goalless draw here. They have the organization to stifle their hosts and try to close the game out for the entirety of the 90 minutes.

Wales comes in as the slight favorite to grab victory. You can back the home side to take all three points at a price of +170, with Denmark only slightly higher, at +190, to do the same. A draw would appear to be the least likely outcome and is priced accordingly at +220.

Wales to make home advantage count

These two teams look evenly matched on paper, although admittedly Denmark is probably slightly stronger, technically speaking. But we are expecting Wales to make its home advantage count, and while it can at times be a thankless task trying to predict the exact scoreline of any given football match, on this occasion a 2-0 home win for the Welsh is priced competitively at +1100 and could well be worth backing.

Such a result would then allow you to back UNDER 2.5 goals in the game, as we have seen frequently in this particular fixture and which is priced here at just -188, and a “No” to both teams scoring, which is also at short odds of -150. Therefore, if you are looking to boost any potential earnings in this tie, it is an idea to consider combo betting, which allows you to select multiple outcomes at higher odds.

For example, a Wales win and a “No” to both teams scoring is at the much higher price of +300, while a home victory and UNDER 2.5 goals in the game is higher still at +375. You may also bet on the total number of goals in the game, with UNDER two at +162, two or three dropping down to +100 and OVER three goals in the game rising sharply to a price of +400.

Denmark to struggle against Cardiff crowd

While Denmark has been in decent nick of late, keeping three clean sheets in a row and winning two of those games, we are expecting this game to be one step too far for the visitors. You can therefore back Wales to win to nil (without Denmark scoring a goal) at a price of +300. Denmark is at the same price, coincidentally, to inflict the same misery on its hosts.

And when it comes to goals, Wales will look no further than their talisman Gareth Bale. The Real Madrid forward is at just +140 to score at any time throughout the 90 minutes, while you can back him to score either the first or last goal of the game at +375, or double that (+750) to score two goals or more.

This is very much Last Chance Saloon for Wales when it comes to a promotion push. We are expecting them to grab that chance with both hands.
