Denmark have failed to hit top gear at times through this Euro 2024 qualifying campaign and with a host of injuries, the Scandinavians could struggle when they face Slovenia at Telia Parken on Friday night.
The Danes were made to work hard for a 2-1 win in San Marino last time out but it was a result to make it four wins on the bounce for Kasper Hjulmand’s side.
Now unbeaten in their last six, Denmark will be looking to claim three points on Friday night but they face a Slovenia side that have been the surprise page in Group H and lead the way after eight games.
A tight tussle is expected in Copenhagen and it’s one that Slovenia are capable of walking away from with something to show for their efforts.
Denmark boss Hjulmand has some tough decisions to make in selection with the likes of Elias Jelert, Simon Kjaer, Christian Eriksen and Rasmus Hojlund all missing for Friday’s game.
There is no such trouble for Slovenia manager Matjaz Kek, who has no fresh injury concerns and is likely to go with much of the same side that won 1-0 in Northern Ireland last time out.
Denmark are the favourites in the match result market at 4/7, with Slovenia 11/2 for the away win. A draw on the night is available at 11/4.
The last meeting between these sides in Ljubljana ended 1-1 and the same scoreline to occur in Copenhagen is available at 13/2.
Draw Or Slovenia - Double Chance @ 11/8
Slovenia have been excellent in this qualifying campaign and their defensive resilience has been a key factor.
Conceding just six goals in eight games, Slovenia find themselves top of the group, while they have lost just one of their last 14 games in all competitions.
Slovenia will head to Copenhagen looking to take advantage of a Denmark side that will miss the Manchester United duo of Eriksen and Hojlund.
Considering their form and Denmark’s injuries, Slovenia are well priced at 11/8 in the double chance market here.
Benjamin Sesko anytime goalscorer @ 7/2
Top goalscorer for Slovenia through the qualification campaign so far with four, Benjamin Sesko is worth keeping an eye on in the anytime goalscorer market.
Sesko has also impressed with RB Leipzig this season, scoring three goals in his first nine Bundesliga appearances.
The 20-year-old looks to have a bright future ahead of him and will be looking to bag his 10th goal for his country on Friday night.
Sesko is available at 7/2 to score anytime in his 24th international appearance for his country.
