Denmark v Republic of Ireland– 19.45 GMT kickoff
Ireland have let victory and qualification for major tournaments slip through their fingers in recent years. It looked like it was happening again this time round, before their incredible win against Wales. They will be keen to impress tonight, especially with their manager looking for top team selections for the world Cup.
Denmark will be keen to stop Ireland in their tracks and Christian Eriksen continues to impress and can be a dominant force. With home advantage, they’ll be keen to try and put this to bed in the first leg and the visitors can expect a relentless all-out attack from kickoff.
Denmark know their limitations- Poland were definitely too strong for them in their group but they know what they’re capable of. They won a point more than Ireland managed in their own group. Denmark’s group was arguably the stronger.
This should be an epic battle, but tactically we expect Denmark to go for goal, with Ireland trying to limit the damage. The latter would like nothing more than to claim the tie on the return leg- on their home turf in front of their own fans.
Denmark v Republic of Ireland– summary
Home advantage will be a big one here and Denmark have shown consistent form to get to this stage. We expect them to prevail tonight in a match where it will be essential that they get a decent start.
