Nations League: Denmark vs Belgium


The Belgian team will open the campaign to conquer the UEFA Nations League after the opening misses a ticket to the semi-finals unfortunately. They shared Group B Group A with Iceland and England, but opened the door by going to Copenhagen as a Danish guest extremely uncomfortable. Do not forget that the Nordic representatives are having a 15-match unbeaten streak recently






Denmark are resilient and determined at home, so Saturday's Nations League clash with Belgium promises to be a stressful one. Denmark have gone through 16 unbeaten games against their own fans and hope to extend that streak at the empty Parken Stadium in Copenhagen. Denmark topped Group B4 in this tournament two years ago, having won Wales and drew twice with the Republic of Ireland. Denmark also went through their Euro 2020 qualifiers unbeaten by finishing second in group behind Switzerland, winning 3 wins and 1 draw at home. Kasper Hjulmand will now replace the venerable Age Hareide head coach, who was selected as his successor last summer. He inherits a squad that may lack strength in depth, But there is a very good starting line-up with Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel and two smart midfielders ahead of him, Simon Kjaer of AC Milan and Andreas Christensen of Chelsea. Christian Eriksen, Thomas Delaney and Tottenham rookie Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg form a well-balanced midfield. Up front, Barcelona's Martin Braithwaite and RB Leipzig playmaker Yussuf Poulsen are among the notable factors not to mention Nice's Kasper Dolberg.

Belgium just missed reaching the final round of the event last time, having 3 wins but was led by Switzerland in goal difference after a strange 5-2 away defeat in the last match. There was no slippage in the Euro 2020 qualifiers, as the Reds won 10 consecutive victories to stand above Russia and Scotland. Roberto Martinez's team is booming in attack with Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne creating opportunities for Romelu Lukaku and Dries Mertens to constantly open fire. However, there is concern that the Belgian defense is going down after Vincent Kompany retires with Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld both to make mistakes.
