Portugal vs Denmark by Garc1
At this point Portugal leads the group with 15 points and still has one game less than Denmark so at least they need to draw to secure the direct qualification. With 5 straight wins,only one loss at home against the surprising Albania, scored 8 goals and conceded 4. Not impressive in my opinion, because Portugal misses a world class striker. Probably it will play Eder from Swansea but in 8 games no goals yet for him, so the problems in the front remain pretty much the same.
On the other hand, Denmark comes in the 2nd place with 12 points ,with one more game played than Portugal . It has exactly the same record has the hosts in terms of goals 8/4.
Denmark compromised the qualification with the last 2 unexpected draws against Albania and Armenia and now has to win and try to recover the lost points and the European hopes.But it wont be easy…However…Denmark still didn’t lose any game outside their turf,so it’s a tough team to beat…
With Portugal only needing a draw, and Denmark haven’t lost any game away, makes me think that this game will have low intensity. Portugal is slightly favourite for this one, but I cannot say for sure that it will win because the problems up front are still the same, the goals are mainly scored by the wingers or center defenders or back defenders.
So my choice goes for under 2,5 goals because a draw its not a bad result for both,Albania will play against servia and that is always a thought match,and in case of A draw or defeat of the Albanians the Danish have clear path to play-offs.
