Ireland News and Form
It all boils down to this for the Irish who are sat on a W3 D3 L1 record. Their lone defeat in the group happened on a trip to Switzerland. The Irish start in third place in the group, three points behind Denmark and two behind Switzerland. Because of the Irish getting a draw in Denmark earlier in the campaign, three points in this one would see Irish move above the Danes on the head to head tiebreaker of points earned in the game between the two nations.
Ireland have struggled for goals in this campaign. They have only scored six of them and in no match have they managed to net more than one goal. Thankfully for them, their defence has been solid, conceding just four goals and earning four clean sheets in their seven games. The one consolidation for the Irish is that if things don’t work out, they are guaranteed a place in the playoffs. There may be a little payback on the minds of the Irish, as they lost 5-1 at home to Denmark in the second leg of their World Cup 2018 play-off tie.
The Irish have lost just one of their last nine games (competitive and friendly) and they warmed up for this one with a 3-1 home friendly win over New Zealand on Thursday. Ireland are undefeated in their last 13 European Championship home qualifiers, winning eight. They were on a five-match winning sequence in such fixtures before playing out a 1-1 draw against Switzerland in their last home qualifier in this group. Still, it is one goal conceded only in their last six such home games. In last year’s Nations League meeting the two games between Denmark and Ireland ended 0-0.

Denmark News and Form
Denmark only need a point and that is going to make them hard to beat on the night at the Aviva Stadium. It has been a very composed campaign by Denmark who are unbeaten in their seven games played in Group D. That is the size of the task ahead of Ireland on the night. The Danes have tallied 22 goals in their seven games as well, conceding only five. Out on the road in the group, they draw in Switzerland and Georgia, winning in Gibraltar.
Their failure to beat the Swiss and the Georgians should give Ireland hope. Denmark’s Christian Eriksen is the top scorer in the group with a tally of five goals. The Danes are undefeated in their last fourteen games (competitive and friendly) and they are on a five-match run of not conceding a goal. Denmark however, have won only one of their last six European Championship away qualifiers.
