Danes Out to Slay the Dragons in UEFA Nations League

Wales, under the guidance of legendary Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs, have had somewhat of a resurgence in recent months. They currently lead the group with two wins from their three matches played thus far and could secure top spot with a win, irrespective of what happens in the final group match between Denmark and the Republic of Ireland.

The Dragons have notched up three wins from seven matches since the of 2018 including a 6-0 demolition of China back in March – a game in which Gareth Bale scored a stunning hat-trick. The Real Madrid star has missed his sides last three matches due to injury, but their talismanic figure is expected to return to the starting line-up once again on Friday.

Wales recent results:

16/10/2018 – Ireland 0-1 Wales (UNL)
11/10/2018 – Wales 1-4 Spain
09/09/2018 – Denmark 2-0 Wales (UNL)
06/09/2018 – Wales 4-1 Ireland (UNL)

The Danish Dynamites will be rueing their missed chances from their last outing against Ireland when they could only come away with a goalless stalemate – a result which leaves them needing to beat Wales away from home if they to have any shot at playing their trade amongst Europe’s elite next season.

Age Hareide’s men head into Friday’s crucial encounter off the back of three consecutive clean sheets since a 3-0 friendly defeat against Slovakia and require shot-stopper Kasper Schmeichel to be on top of his game once again. The Leicester City number 1 will be eager to impress following their death of his club’s chairmen and owner just over a fortnight ago.
