Republic of Ireland vs Denmark predictions and betting tips for the crucial World Cup Play-Offs on Tuesday 14th November at 7:45pm. Read today’s betting preview for the match below.
It was very much a case of job done for Martin O’Neill’s side in Copenhagen as they restricted the chances of the home side and came away with a valuable clean sheet. Sadly for ROI they didn’t manage to score that elusive away goal but they have given themselves a realistic chance of qualification. They defended diligently and will be aiming to do the same here although they’ve got to produce more in the final third if they’re going to book their place at the World Cup 2018. Denmark were left disappointed by the result but still have plenty of quality and are perfectly capable of winning in Dublin. We’re starting with our Republic of Ireland vs Denmark best betting tip for this evening.
We start our Republic of Ireland vs Denmark predictions with a qualifying selection. Surely, Ireland shouldn’t be outsiders to qualify after their performance in the Danish capital. They don’t produce much up front by they can be deadly from a set-piece and that shouldn’t be underestimated. It’s 50/50 and I’ll happily take the bigger price on Martin O’Neill’s side to grind their way to Russia 2018. Ireland to Qualify is much better price and is the first of our tips at 13/10 with Boylesports and that is the first of our Republic of Ireland vs Denmark predictions for Tuesday evening.
The first leg wasn’t one for the purists but that won’t bother Irish fans. O’Neill’s side are likely to keep it tight here as they can’t afford to concede an away goal. Denmark ran out of ideas towards the end of the game and this could easily be settled by a solitary strike. Under 1.5 Goals is the second of our Republic of Ireland vs Denmark betting tips and is priced at 7/5 with Sport Pesa.
The last of our Republic of Ireland vs Denmark betting tips comes from the correct score market. ROI don’t blow sides away and they will be able to go through with a single goal here. Denmark will be desperate for an away goal but they may come up short again. 1-0 to Republic of Ireland is the most likely outcome here is priced at 13/2 with Paddy Power and that is the last of our Republic of Ireland vs Denmark predictions.
The hosts welcome back captain David Meyler who has served his suspension and he may replace Callum O’Dowda. Many fans are pushing for Wes Hoolahan to start as he will provide some creativity. Shane Long could provide workhorse Daryl Murphy.
Denmark will need to find a way to break down ROI but they may stick to a similar XI here. Nicklas Bendtner will fancy his chances of starting.
The last time these sides met here was back in 2002 where Ireland ran out 3-0 winners during a friendly match. That’s their only victory in the last seven meetings between these teams. You have to go back to 1979 to find the last time they beat here competitively.
