England vs Denmark Prediction: Nations League Match on 14.10.2020
Preview and Prediction
The Three Lions finally toppled Belgium in the standings of group 2 UEFA Nations League last weekend. It is a crucial overturn after their first two unsatisfactory results and now they seem to be back on their winning ways. This midweek, Harry Kane and Co are looking for their third consecutive win in Wembley while welcoming Denmark, which also just snatched three points after their series of scoreless result.
Both teams’ previous games
England eventually managed to prove their quality after beating the number-one team in FIFA current rank, Belgium at home. At the first half, despite the visitor’s domination, they both eventually traded penalties. First was taken by Lukaku while Marcus Rashford blasted the second one. Their winning goal was scored by Mason Mount, whose long range shot effort was slightly deflected before going over the line. It was a perfect revenge after their respective loss in World Cup 2018.
Meanwhile, Denmark ended their series of winless run last weekend in Reykyavik. They dismantled Iceland 3-0. Simon Kjaer’s deflected header opened the score sheet. Then, Christian Eriksen doubled their lead before Robert Skov netted the last goal of the game through his long drive.
Gareth Southgate’s attempt to deploy 3-4-2-1 as he did against Wales in the friendly game previously seemed to be paid off against Belgium, although the former England U-21 and Middlesbrough boss is not satisfied yet. As the main frontman, Harry Kane might get the nod for the starting IX again instead of Calvert-Lewin, whereas Jack Grealish and Marcus Rashford will be the mobile attacking midfielders.
His counterpart, Kasper Hjulmand is likely to stick to his 4-3-3 formation. Kasper Dolberg, Yussuf Poulsen and Martin Braithwaite will still be selected for the front trio slot, while in the midfield, Eriksen is accompanied by Thomas Delaney who will be staying in the deep most of the time while Robert Skov can be more mobile with multiple role as the midfielder, winger and occasional full back.
Players to watch
Aston Villa captain, Jack Grealish may still have two caps without scoring one yet. However, he is bound to be the next key man in The Three Lions. Some other notable names to watch are Declan Rice, Eric Dier and Ben Chillwell.
The Inter Milan man, Christian Eriksen might be the most famous one in the squad along with the captain Kasper Schmeichel. However, it is Robert Skov who is going to play important role for the Danes. The versatile Hoffenheim man has registered four goals in only seven appearances.
England vs Denmark prediction
Christian Eriksen and Co’s form might not be consistent yet so far but they have the potentials to stun England if they are not careful, especially toward the talented Robert Skov. Southgate’s men will be relying on Kieran Trippier to close him down and Jack Grealish for penetrating the Scandinavian defence. Such could be helpful for them to secure another home win here.
The home advantage could be the main consideration for the punters to back England to win at 1.72. The draw result is at the value of 3.85, whereas Kasper Hjulmand’s men are projected to win at 4.90.
