Denmark Vs Scotland Prediction, Odds And Team News

After losing their Euro 2020 semi-final clash against England, Denmark return to international duty when they take on Scotland on Wednesday night.

A return to competitive action in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers will see the Danes go head-to-head with the Scots as both sides look to book their place in Qatar next year.

Scotland have a positive record in head-to-head duels with Denmark and have won their last two matches against them, however, only a handful of current players were in the line-up for their most recent victory.

And with the Scots winless in their last three matches, the Danes can pile on the misery on their closest rivals in qualification. 


Ahead of the game, our tipster Robert Mann takes a look at some of the best bets from Denmark vs Scotland to get your teeth stuck into.

Denmark vs Scotland betting tips & predictions

Denmark are 4/9 to win, with Scotland priced at 13/2 to come away with the victory. A draw is priced at 3/1.

Prediction: 4-0 (18/1)

Half-Time/Full-Time: Denmark/Denmark (11/10)

Scotland are trailing Denmark by six points in Group F and need to cut down the gap if they are to reach the World Cup in Qatar next year.

However, it will be a tough task for the Scots with the game being played in Copenhagen and, for that reason, we’re backing Kasper Hjulmand’s men to lead from the first to last whistle. 

Three points will be a must for Scotland who are trailing Denmark by six points in Group F

Under/Over Goals: Over 3.5 (5/2)

During the European Championships, Denmark made little work of Wales, Russia and the Czech Republic - and it’s been the same case in the World Cup qualifiers. 

Interestingly, with 21 goals shared between them in six outings, this clash can become a goal-scoring extravaganza. 

Win to Nil: Denmark (11/10)

Denmark certainly have the ability to create enough chances to score more than one against Scotland, who could well find it tough getting on the scoresheet.

The Danes are the team in form and should, as a result, take all three points on offer against the Scots who are winless in their last three outings.

Denmark team news

Philip Billing was in line make his first international appearance for Denmark since October 2020, but the 25-year-old has had to pull out of the set-up due to illness.

Meanwhile, forward Martin Braithwaite is unlikely to feature as he picked up a knee injury during Barcelona's last match against Getafe, so Yussuf Poulsen will be handed a start up top instead.
