League B of the 2018/19 UEFA Nations League features some very strong teams from around the European continent. One of the toughest groups of League B is Group 4 which features Denmark, Ireland and Wales.
The Danes reached the Round of 16 stage of the 2018 World Cup, while Ireland and Wales failed to qualify for the tournament. On the 13th October Ireland and Denmark will meet at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin for their second match of the group.
Ireland sit bottom and Denmark are top of the group but who are the favourites to win the match? Continue reading below for Ireland vs Denmark predictions.
Despite being the away team, the bookmakers clearly feel Denmark have what it takes to win this match. The Ireland vs Denmark betting odds with Bet365 have the Danes as the 13/10 favourites to return to Denmark with maximum points.
Denmark started the group with a good 2-0 home win over Wales. This was a match Denmark were expected to win and they did the job keeping a clean sheet in the process. This is a team who went out of the World Cup on penalties to the eventually runners-up, so they have more than enough about them to win this game.
Ireland have found life tough since they lost to Denmark in the World Cup playoffs. The heavy defeat in Dublin will be on their mind as they take the field but Ireland’s form has been poor. They lost their opening game of this group 4-1 in Wales and have won just one of their last seven games which was at home against United States.
Ireland are the outsiders to win this game at 12/5 with Bet365 and the draw is also on offer at 2/1.
