WORLD CUP- DENMARK vs SCOTLAND: Match Prediction, Preview & Kickoff Time

Denmark was one of the most outstanding nations at Euro 2020, despite losing in the semi-finals to England, and they will want to continue their strong form when they play Scotland in a 2022 World Cup qualification match. The Danes have been on fire in the World Cup qualifiers thus far, winning all three of their games in Group F to put them four points ahead of second-placed Scotland.

They have only kept one clean sheet in their last five games, all of which have ended with over 2.5 goals. They've conceded two goals in two of their previous five games, but have scored two or more in three of them. Denmark is unbeaten in 12 World Cup qualification matches, winning nine of them, and has yet to surrender in this group.

The last time these two countries met was in a friendly match in 2016, which Scotland won 1-0, following a 2-1 victory in 2011. This time, they'll want to do it in a competitive encounter, and a win here would help them a lot. The Scots are without two crucial players, John McGinn and Scott McTominay, due to illness and injury, respectively. They didn't fare well at the Euros.

Scotland enters this game with a three-game losing streak, two clean sheets in five games, and two of the five games have produced more than 2.5 goals.

They have only won two of their last ten games and have failed to score in four of them. They have only one win in seven games away from home, with only two clean sheets. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in four of Scotland's previous five World Cup qualification matches played away from home.

SUMMARY:

Denmark are the clear favourites in this match, and they will benefit from home advantage as well. They have a great scoring streak going, and their main player, Martin Brathwaite, has two goals in three league games. A strong option here would be in the goals market, and based on their previous scoring statistics, over 2.5 goals appears to be a good choice. The game will go down tomorrow at 7:45 PM Nigerian time.
