Free EURO 2020 Qualifying Picks Switzerland vs. Denmark
Switzerland play host to Denmark in EURO 2020 qualification on Tuesday. The Swiss have already won their opening match against Georgia (2-0) on Saturday, having already secured a playoff spot for the tournament after a successful Nations League campaign. Denmark, on the other, have been unbeaten in their last six games (W3 D3) and the Swiss won’t take them lightly at all. Although, the Danes escaped a defeat in their recent friendly match against Kosovo in the last minute. Both these sides reached the last 16 in Russia last summer, having said that – both these sides have not met in the past twenty years. Denmark won 2-1 at home to Switzerland when the two sides last met in 1999. Switzerland have never lost at home to Denmark.
Switzerland have only failed to qualify for one major tournament since the 2002 World Cup that shows how good they have been for such a long time. Switzerland’s home record has been impressive as well – losing just one of their last 12 fixtures. The loss came against Qatar in a friendly game in 2018, they faced Belgium in their next encounter, who were the no.1 side at that time and beat them by a scoreline of 5-2; Swiss forward Haris Seferovic scored a hattrick in that game. To get past Denmark’s defence, someone will have to step up to the occasion in place of star man Xherdan Shaqiri – who won’t be available to start the match. Fabian Schar is ruled out of the clash due to a head injury he sustained against Geogia. Ajeti is expected to start in place of striker Gavranovic, while rest of the line up may remain unchanged. Swiss haven’t had a draw in their last 8 outings and will be confident about overcoming the Danes in Basel on Tuesday.
Denmark’s coach Age Hareide had to use Christian Eriksen after going down 1-0 in the half time and the Spurs man wasted no time in getting his team back into the game. It was Pierre Hojbjerg who scored the equalizing goal to avoid an embarrassing defeat. Kasper Schmeichel, Kasper Dolberg, Andreas Christensen, Simon Kjaer, and Yussuf Poulsen are all called up to the most recent squad announced. Denmark has only kept two clean sheets in their last six qualifiers while traveling away since 2017. It’s a difficult task for Denmark while moving forward knowing Switzerland’s defense – which held on Belgium as well. Denmark would be happy with a point keeping in mind they have been an excellent defensive unit apart from their recent stumbles. Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel and Erikson would be important to the Danes chances.
