Northern Ireland complete their fixtures for Group H in qualification on Monday, as they play host to Denmark. The Danes are within touching distance of a place in next summer’s tournament, but they may need a victory on Monday to ensure their spot in Germany.
EURO 2024 Qualifier Preview
It has been a very underwhelming qualifying campaign for Northern Ireland this year, as their hopes of reaching EURO 2024 were effectively over at the end of the summer. However, they will be hoping to conclude Group H on a high note by landing victories in each of their remaining two matches before preparations get underway for World Cup qualification.
They come into this break after losing six of their eight previous matches, which includes defeats in four of the previous five. They halted their poor form for a brief moment last month with a victory over San Marino, but they were brought back down to earth following a 1-0 home loss against Slovenia.
Denmark were among the popular dark horse selections for the previous edition of the World Cup, but they flattered to deceive after failing to make it out of the group stage. They have bounced back to somewhere near their best form this year after winning six of their last eight international matches. But, they still need positive results from their remaining two matches in Group H.
Denmark come into this break in strong recent form, as they have landed victories in each of their last four. Victories in each of their remaining two matches could see them finish above Slovenia in the group standings. However, they will be without two influential stars this month, with both Christian Eriksen and Rasmus Hojlund out injured.
Northern Ireland vs Denmark Head to Head
Northern Ireland have won just two of the previous 12 matches between these sides. Over the same period, Denmark have landed five victories, while five draws have also been played out. The latest meeting between the nations came in June, with Denmark edging to a 1-0 success.
Northern Ireland vs Denmark Prediction
It has been a miserable qualifying campaign for Northern Ireland, meaning that it could be worthwhile to side with Denmark on Monday. It isn’t likely to be a high-scoring encounter, and we will be picking the Danes to land a 1-0 success on the road.
