Denmark could only manage a dismal goal-less draw with the Republic of Ireland in the first leg of this two-legged play-off on Saturday and this resulted in a chorus of boos from the home support, however for the Irish it was a decent enough result and Martin O’Neill’s men are very much in the driving seat despite enjoying just 34% of possession in Copenhagen. This is nevertheless a somewhat worrying statistic ahead of the return leg in Dublin with the Irish making just two shots on target during the duration of the match. They managed to contain the Danes but failed to make much of an impression and an improvement is very much in order for the return leg on Tuesday evening.

We shouldn’t really expect a massive change of tactics from Martin O’Neill, however the vocal home support will certainly do much to swing things in Ireland’s favour one would imagine. The Irish supporters are hardly known for their lack of passion and this should help to intimidate the visitors. The hosts impressed in their qualifying campaign with just one defeat on home soil and they will be confident of edging their way past a Denmark side which have been a mixed bag on the road with a failure to find the net in Romania and a 3-2 defeat in Poland. The Danes could only manage a share of the spoils with Romania in their last qualifier and we envisage the visitors missing out on their third successive major competition by losing what looks set to be a pretty close affair in Dublin this week.

The Danish squad isn’t used to performing in high-pressure situations and should the home side frustrate them for lengthy periods then panic will start to set in. The Irish have been solid under pressure and this should prove to be the difference between the two sides in this crunch match. Despite this, the bookmakers make the hosts outsiders at 21/10 to win tonight and we’ll certainly be grabbing ourselves some of that.
