Denmark and Kazakhstan will face off in Copenhagen on Saturday night (19:45) for what could prove to be a decisive fixture in their Euro 2024 qualifying group.
The top four teams in Group H are separated by just one point after six games played, and Denmark will be seeking revenge after losing the reverse fixture against Saturday’s opponents.
Denmark are 1/7 favourites to claim what could be a vital three points here, with the draw priced at 13/2 and Kazakhstan are 20/1 to emerge triumphant.
Kazakhstan beat Denmark 3-2 in the reverse fixture back in March, and a repeat of that scoreline is a whopping 125/1.
Manchester United marksman Rasmus Hojlund is 5/6 to score anytime, and 3/1 to score the first or last goal of the contest.
Andreas Skov Olsen has withdrawn from the Denmark squad due to injury, while Rasmus Hojlund appears to be back to full fitness for the hosts.
As for Kazakhstan, they have no fresh injury worries ahead of Saturday’s game, so manager Magomed Adiyev could stick with the same lineup that took to the field against Northern Ireland last month.
Denmark to win and both teams to score (yes) @ 9/4
Denmark are unbeaten in their last four Euros qualifiers, winning three, and they’ll be seeking revenge here after losing to Kazakhstan back in March.
The Danes conceded twice late on in that game but have shown more resolve since, however Kazakhstan have emerged as one of the surprise packages of this qualification campaign, winning four of their six matchups.
The visitors have netted in six of their last seven matches and will fancy their chances of getting on the scoresheet once more against a Denmark side that they beat not too long ago.
However, the Danes are strong at home, and should have enough quality to defeat Kazakhstan here.
Rasmus Hojlund to score anytime @ 5/6
The Manchester United striker has certainly caught the eye during this qualification campaign, scoring six goals across six appearances – including a brace in the reverse fixture against Kazakhstan.
He’s also off the mark for his new club after a big-money move from Atalanta in the summer, scoring three times in Manchester United’s two Champions League defeats so far.
I think 5/6 is a decent price for the 20-year-old to find the back of the net on Saturday, especially given the form he’s in for his country.
