Our prediction for this Nations League match:
Belgium will be looking to cement top position in Group 2 when they take on Denmark at King Baudouin Stadium in their last group game. The Red Devils recorded a routine 2-0 win over England at the weekend, with the team extending their winning run in all competitions to three matches. Even though Real Madrid ace Eden Hazard remains on the sidelines due to the positive test for coronavirus, home win should be considered.
The good news for the hosts is that Romelu Lukaku has overcome his injury. The Danes, on the other hand, managed to keep their playoffs hopes alive thanks to Christian Eriksen’s late goal from the penalty spot in the game against Iceland. A win over Belgium will see Denmark clinch top position in Group 2, but given the Red Devils’ display in the win over England, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed.
Highlighted Player (Eden Hazard):
After impressing during his six-year spell with Lille (2007-2012), Eden Hazard signed for Chelsea in June, 2012. The Belgian midfielder helped the Blues win the Premier League trophy in the 2014/2015 campaign and it has to be noted that he was named the Premier League Player of the Year back then.
Eden Hazard made it to the 2014 FIFA World Cup quarter-finals with Belgium, but Argentina proved to be a big catch for the Red Devils in the last eight of the showpiece tournament in Brazil. Hazard scored one goal for Belgium at the Euro 2016 finals, while providing four assists for his teammates and no doubt he was the key player for Marc Wilmots’ team at the tournament in France.
Eden was born on 7 January, 1991 in La Louviere, Belgium and it is well known that his brother Thorgan Hazard is a professional football player as well. Eden Hazard is married to Natacha Van Honacker, who gave birth to their three children.
Highlighted Team (Denmark):
The Denmark national team participated at the World Cup finals on four occasions and they recorded their best result at the 1998 tournament. The Danes made it to the quarter-finals of the 1998 World Cup in France, but Brazil proved to be a big catch for the Nordic side. De Rod-Hvide did remarkably well to win the 1992 European Championship, but they were more than fortunate to qualify for the Euro 1992 finals.
Denmark finished their qualifying campaign in second place in the group, but thanks to Yugoslavia’s exclusion from the competition, the team booked their place at the Euro 1992 finals. Denmark impressed at the tournament in Sweden, with the team outplaying Germany in the title game (2-0).
Brothers Michael and Bryan Laudrup and goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel are regarded as Denmark’s most notable players. It has to be noted that Morten Olsen was in charge of the Danish national team from 2000 to 2015. The Danes play their home games at Telia Parken and the capacity of the venue is 38,065 (all-seater).
