Wales Vs Denmark Prediction And Odds

Wales will continue their latest quest for glory when they clash with Denmark this evening in the last-16 at Euro 2020.

Five years after recording their best-ever finish at the European Championships, the Welsh will be out to silence their doubters yet again when they come up against a well-drilled Denmark side.

Qualifying alongside Switzerland and Italy, Robert Page's squad defied the odds to advance from Group A - with Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey and co all putting in stellar performances.

Despite losing 1-0 to the Italians in Rome last time out, the Dragons have a love affair with this tournament and will be no pushover - and the Danes will be wary of just that.

In truly shocking circumstances, Denmark had to overcome a traumatic start to the tournament as Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest during their opening game.

With the knockout stages now underway, our tipster Robert Mann takes a look at some of the best bets from Wales vs Denmark to get your teeth stuck into.

Wales are 4/1 to win, with Denmark priced at 4/5 to come away with the victory. A draw is priced at 23/10.

Prediction: 2-1 (14/1)

Half-Time/Full-Time: Draw/Wales (17/2)

Wales arrive in Amsterdam on the back of a gruelling contest against the Italians and face a Denmark side who have somewhat of a revived look about them.

Robert Page's side are likely to sit back and try to punish Denmark on the counter-attack, meaning the first 45 minutes will, almost certainly, be a cagey affair.

The Danes, meanwhile, will be more than aware of the threat that Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey can pose, while the speed of Dan James must also not be ignored.

Cymru know this tournament all too well - and with a passionate Welsh contingency behind them, we're backing the Dragons to win this game.

As a result, we reckon the two sides will go into half-time stalemate before Wales come out fighting, securing progression into the quarter-finals just like they did back in 2016.

First goalscorer: Kieffer Moore (8/1)

Kieffer Moore has nailed down a permanent place in this Wales squad - and it comes as no surprise, too.

The 28-year-old, who scored 20 goals in the Championship for Cardiff City last season, headed home to level against Switzerland in Wales' opener and ensured they achieved their first point in the group stages.

With that said, Moore will be eager to get on the scoresheet once again - and there is no reason why he cannot carry on being the key talisman for this Wales side this summer.

We reckon he will be pivotal in pushing the Welsh into the quarter-final - and we're backing him at juicy odds of 8/1 to score first in tonight's game.

Price Boost: Bale to have a shot on target (1/1)

Ever wondered what buying money might feel like? Well, this is it.

Gareth Bale to have a shot on target at attractive even-money odds with Sky Bet is, essentially, an easy way to pay for the pints this weekend.

Bale had 17 shots on target in six appearances for Wales at Euro 2016

To put it into context, Bale had 17 shots on target in six appearances for Wales at Euro 2016 - and his form so far during this year's Euros has been excellent.

Wales team news

Wales will be without the suspended Ethan Ampadu, but other than that, Robert Page has no known injury issues to contend with.

The Dragons named an unchanged side for their opening two games, with Kieffer Moore spearheading the attack.

Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey were standout players in their impressive 2-0 win over Turkey - and they will be looking to replicate that same performance against the Danes.

Denmark team news

Denmark will, of course, still be without Christian Eriksen as he continues to recover from the cardiac arrest suffered against Finland a couple of weeks ago.

The Danes are likely to line up with Daniel Wass and Joakim Maehle operating as wing-backs, with Martin Braithwaite playing just off Yusen Poulsen up top.

Midfield maestro Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg set up two goals from the middle of the park against Russia and has three assists for the tournament - no Denmark player has ever recorded more at a major tournament.
