The home side made a good showing at the last UEFA EURO, clinching two quartet victories against Ukraine, the Netherlands and Macedonia. In the 1/8 finals, the Red and Whites drew heavily with the eventual winners Italians (regulation time ended 0-0), but goals from Chiesa and Pessin in extratime saw the Azzurras progress to the quarter-finals. The Austrians did not qualify for the World Cup too well, finishing only fourth with 16 points. However, the team were already qualifying for the knockout rounds, thanks to a group win in the Nations League.
The Red and White still failed to qualify for Qatar in March. In the play-offs, they lost away to Wales 2-1 in the first round and were left with nothing. Franco Foda’s side then sensationally thrashed the Croatians in the first leg of the Nations League last Thursday, 0-3 (1,Russ.).
The visitors are the real sensation of last year’s Euros. The Scandinavians caused a stir at the tournament, reaching the semi-finals of the competition before conceding a decisive goal to England. In the World Cup autumn qualifying group, Denmark skated over all their opponents, scoring 27 out of a possible 30 points. They scored 30 goals (more than any other national team), conceding only 3. And this despite the loss of their leader, midfielder Christian Eriksen.
Now he is back and ready to delight the fans again with his filigree passes. Last Thursday’s 1-2 defeat of France in Paris in the first leg of the Nations League thanks to a goal from Andreas Cornelius (2.3).
They met most recently in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, with the Danes winning both times (0-4 and 1-0).
Austria v Denmark
Both teams surprised the entire football world last week when they beat the last two World Cup finalists on the road. Now the teams will have to find out who will take the intermediate top spot in the quartet. The Austrians have been playing effectively of late, not only scoring themselves, but also allowing numerous chances at their own goal. The visitors, on the other hand, are in great form and will try to build on their recent success. Christian Eriksen, who has been out of action for six months, is in charge of the attacking moves. It’s a safe bet on both goals.
