Belgium is welcoming Denmark to Den Dreef Stadium in round 6 in the UEFA Nations League.
Belgium is on a 3-game winning streak, and they have scored 6 goals while conceding 2 goals during that stretch. With 12 points, 12 scored goals, and 4 conceded goals, Belgium is in 1st place in their Nations League group. Mertens and Lukaku have each scored 3 goals for Belgium so far in the Nations League, while Batshuayi added 2 goals. De Bruyne has 2 assists for Belgium. In their latest Nations League game, Belgium was hosting England, and they were decent with 45% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 1 big chance created, and 84% of the correct passes. Belgium has scored 2 goals in the first half, and they have won this game 4-0. It’s hard to stay consistent when your team is struggling with injuries and Covid quarantines, but Belgium is doing a good job. There was a period last month when Belgium was on a 2-game streak without a win, but they have adapted their game, and they got back on the winning track. Belgium needs 1 point from this game to secure the top spot, but it’s always nice to win the last game of the year.
Denmark has been impressive as of late, and they have won their last 5 games. With 10 points, 6 scored goals, and 3 conceded goals, Denmark is in second place, and they still have a chance to get to the top, but also to lose the second place. In their last Nations League game against Iceland at home, Denmark has had 57% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a solid 86% of the correct passes. After leading 1-0 at half time, Denmark had a few more chances in the second half, but they conceded a goal in the 85th minute. Luckily for Denmark, they were awarded another penalty in the 92nd minute, and they scored. Denmark has won this match 2-1. Christian Eriksen is the leading goalscorer for Denmark with 4 goals, while Skov added 1 more goal. Poulsen has added 1 assist. It’s not like the Nations League is a very important competition, but a lot is at stake for Denmark in this game because they can either end up in first place, drop to third place, or stay where they are now. I like Denmark, and I think they are playing good soccer, but they don’t have a lot of depth which is their biggest problem.
Denmark hasn’t lost any of their last 6 games, while Belgium hasn’t lost any of their last 24 home games. Belgium has beaten Denmark in the first round of the Nations League on the road, but Belgium has lost in their last home game to Denmark. Belgium can score a lot of goals, and Denmark’s defense is not the best, but neither is Belgium’s. I expect goals here.
