Denmark vs Sweden: prediction, preview and team news
Denmark and Sweden, the two neighbouring countries, face each other at Brondby Stadion in a friendly international. The Danes did well to shock England on the road in their last Nations League match, and they must be high on confidence ahead of the visit of Sweden.
Denmark come into this game on the back of a 1-0 win over nine-man England last month in the UEFA Nations League.
Sweden, on the other hand, lost 3-0 to Portugal last month in the UEFA Nations League. Under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their previous two meetings in all competitions, and yet another low-scoring affair is on the cards.
Reason for Denmark vs Sweden predictions:
- Sweden have lost all four of their Nations League matches, scoring once.
- Denmark have kept nine clean sheets in their last 11 matches.
- Denmark have lost only one of their previous 20 games.
- Denmark score 8 goals in the last 5 games.
- Sweden score 3 goals in the last 5 games.
Denmark’s solid start to their current Nations League campaign has been built on a watertight rearguard and punters should not expect anything spectacular when they take on Scandinavian rivals Sweden at the Brondby Stadium.
The Danes are on a four-match unbeaten run and have kept clean sheets in all of those games.
In 107 previous encounters between the two countries, Sweden hold the advantage. They have won 47 games, lost 40 and drawn 20.
The two countries last faced each other in 2018 in an international friendly, with the game ending in a goalless draw.
Denmark have a highly-talented squad, with the likes of Eriksen, Kasper Dolberg and Yussuf Poulsen in attack and Thomas Delaney and Hojbjerg in midfield.
Sweden, on the other hand, have some talented young players as well. Denmark are playing at home, and have talented and quality in every position. They should be able to triumph over Sweden.
