Nations League: Denmark – Belgium

03.09.2020

The Nations League, the official tournaments for national football selections in Europe, starts its second season this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. All European countries and UEFA-affiliated nations participate against each other in their first group stage games. Of course, it’s no wonder that we are looking forward the most to Saturday’s game between Denmark and Belgium.

As the European Championship had to be postponed to 2021, our Red Devils will likely take this chance to prove their incredible form with both hands! Expectations are high, Belgium’s form seems even higher. Can you match the Red Devils winning streak by placing a winning bet? Read on for insights and tips and prove us your new-found sports knowledge with a winning bet!

Denmark – Belgium (Parken Stadium, Copenhagen, Saturday, September 5, 8.45 p.m.)

Denmark and Belgium are meeting each other in their Group 2, where the other contenders are England and Iceland. Thanks to this new Nations League format, that effectively replaces friendly European national football games, there is more at stake, as the competition is more evenly weighted out.

Boasting a head-to-head record against Belgium that is surprisingly in its favour, Denmark is not a team to be trifled with. Its current selection includes players that have plenty of experience in Europe’s toughest competitions. Foremost, it has the incredible Christian Eriksen (Inter Milan) in its ranks.

Belgium, though, is still considered the better team overall, with a higher UEFA ranking to prove it. The Belgians were a favourite to win the European Championship, and after a well-deserved third place in the World Championship of 2018, this Golden Generation is dead set on a big prize.

With some of the world’s best players – De Bruyne, Hazard, Lukaku, Courtois – on his team, coach Martinez has all the potential to lead the Red Devils deep into the Nations league. The road to the final starts on Saturday. Will you support the Belgians with a smart bet, and win some money when they win?
