Our prediction for this Nations League match:
There will be fireworks when Denmark and Belgium face each other at Telia Parken in the UEFA Nations League derby. Denmark start their preparations for the next year’s European Championship finals, but they will have a big fish to fry in Saturday’s football match. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Leipzig attacker Yussuf Poulsen, who scored two goals on the road to Euro 2020. The Red Devils, on the other hand, looked unstoppable in their qualifying group, with the team keeping their 100% record intact thanks to a thrilling 6-1 win over Cyprus.
The Belgians are eager to kick off their Nations League campaign in style, and seeing that Roberto Martinez can count on key players for the Telia Parken showdown, we are tempted to put our money on the visitors. As always, a man to watch in the away team will be Manchester City superstar Kevin de Bruyne.
Highlighted Player (Yussuf Poulsen):
Yussuf Poulsen is a Danish footballer who started his youth career at BK Skjold. At the age of 14 he joined Lyngby and he made his debut for the first team on 4 December, 2011. He came as a substitute in a match against Horsens after 84 minutes, substituting Mathias Tauber. However, he made no more than five league appearances for Lyngby in the 2011/2012 season.
Despite the fact that Lyngby dropped to Denmark 1st Division, Poulsen did not leave the club in the summer transfer window and it has to be noted that he made 30 appearances for the Vikings in the 2012/2013 campaign. On 4 July, 2013 he signed a deal with Leipzig and he has been playing for the German outfit ever since.
The 193-cm-tall attacker is capable of playing as both right and left winger. Poulsen’s father is Tanzanian, but he decided to represent the Danish national team. He made his debut for the senior team against Albania on 11 October, 2014. Poulsen scored his first ever goal for Denmark in a 2-0 win over Serbia on June 13, 2015.
