Denmark – Croatia
Denmark will look for a third consecutive win in the Nations League when they host Croatia on Friday. Let’s preview this match in our best soccer bets today.
The Red Dynamite can sensationally win this group and nobody thinks it’s impossible anymore. The Scandinavians won their first two matches against France and Austria which puts them on first place at the moment. What’s even more impressive is that they have done it away from home.
Denmark are progressing very well since the manager Kasper Hjulmand started working with the team. They performed more than good at the Euro 2020 and reached the World Cup by winning their qualifying group. It seems that Hjulmand found a way to bring some confidence in his players.
Few days ago Denmark paid a visit to Austria and achieved a second win with the same result – 2-1. Pierre Emil Hojbjerg scored the first one for the visitors while Jens Stryger Larsen secured the win with a late goal in the 84th minute. He was assisted by Christian Eriksen who returned to the team after what happened at the Euro.
Croatia are desperate to win this game – they are 4th in the group with just one point won so far. It was won against France on Monday when these two teams made a 1-1 draw in Split. Until the 83th minute the Blazers were a goal behind, but Andrej Kramaric equalised from a penalty kick. He could be starting on Friday after being benched against the world champions.
That’s the best soccer bets today for the Nations League clash between Denmark and Croatia on Friday. The Red Dynamite started its campaign in the most impressive way. A third consecutive win for Denmark would move them close to winning this group. At the same time Croatia are desperate for points here.
