Finland entertain Denmark on Sunday evening in a Euro 2024 qualifier. We take a look at where the betting value could lie in this contest.
Finland attacker Oliver Antman was the difference as his side defeated Kazakhstan on Thursday night, so the young winner will likely maintain his place in the forward line, alongside record goalscorer Teemu Pukki.
Denmark boss Kasper Hjulmand is likely to make several changes to the side that defeated San Marino. The likes of Yussuf Poulsen, Rasmus Hojlund, Martin Braithwaite and Andreas Christensen will be primed to be given the green light to start.
Veteran goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel looks set to earn his 95th international cap, while captain Simon Kjaer himself looks to make his 128th appearance.
Denmark to score in both halves at 9/5
When these two sides last met back in March, Denmark ran out as 3-1 winners. Hojlund was the hat-trick hero that day and he scored goals in both halves of the match, which could suggest the Danes can strike against Finland in both halves once again.
Denmark also scored goals in both halves in their 4-0 victory over San Marino last time out, with four different goalscorers on the scoresheet.
With a lot of attacking talent in their ranks, we feel that Denmark can land a blow on Finland in both halves on Sunday, especially if Hojlund can hit the same form as the reverse fixture earlier in the year.
Over 2.5 goals at EVS
There were four goals in that 3-1 victory for Denmark back in March, which could suggest we might be in for another flurry of goals on this occasion.
It is also worth noting that a minimum of three goals have been scored in three of Denmark’s Euro 2024 qualifiers so far. As for Finland, they have seen at least three goals in two of their matches.
With the attacking quality that both teams possess, it is likely that both teams can hurt each other when they meet on Sunday, and we could be in line for another high-scoring affair.
