England travel to Denmark tonight in their second match in the Nations League, looking to build on their lucky win over Iceland.
We at Lap of the Odds HQ have just about got over the frustration of Harry Kane’s perfectly legitimate goal being disallowed for offside, having bet on the Spurs striker to open the scoring.
However, we were disappointed with the quality of England’s play after that opening burst. We know there are several reasonable excuses, but things won’t get easier as they face a real step up in class.
It’s true Denmark lost 2-0 at home on Saturday, but that was against Belgium and their first defeat in 27 competitive fixtures.
England are likely to make changes, especially given Phil Foden and Mason Greenwood have been sent home for stupidly breaching Covid-19 protocols. This will make it even harder for the team to develop an understanding.
Given all of this, we thinks Danish victory at close to 3/1 looks real value.
Recommendation: Denmark to win, 1 pt, at 14/5, Unibet
