Denmark return to Wembley Stadium for the first time in more than six years on Wednesday, but the odds rest in favor of hosts England, who haven’t lost to this opponent in London since 1983.
It was at the ‘old’ Wembley that the Danes managed to beat the Three Lions 1-0 during qualifying for Euro 1984, meaning a win in midweek would represent their maiden victory at the new ground.
England sit at the summit of UEFA Nations League Group A2 after coming from behind to beat Belgium 2-1 on Sunday, a result that left Gareth Southgate proud of his side’s “fantastic performance”:
The Three Lions are back in action as -142 favorites with William Hill this time around, a price that still reflects good value against a Danish team that’s struggled for goals during this contest thus far.
Kasper Hjulmand’s men dominated Iceland 3-0 on Sunday to claim their first win of the 2020-21 Nations League, but that result also provided their first goals scored in the third group outing. Denmark are +425 underdogs to book a second away win as many outings, per William Hill, a feat the country hasn’t managed since winning four successive FIFA World Cup qualifiers in 2017.
Prediction: England 1-0 Denmark
Matches between these two teams have been historically lower-scoring affairs in more modern times.
England and Denmark first met in October 1908 and have had 22 matchups in all, producing 63 goals (an average of 2.86 goals per game). However, 35 of those goals came in the first eight meetings alone; the last 14 encounters have produced only 28 goals (an average of only two per game).
Daniel Sturridge scored the only goal of the game when Denmark last visited Wembley in 2014, while the teams drew 0-0 when they met in Copenhagen last month:
