European Under-21 Championship hosts Denmark kept their hopes of winning the competition on home soil alive by getting the better of Belarus in their second group game and they look set to book their place in the last four by seeing off Iceland in Aalborg.
However, the Danes are just 1/2 with Coral to claim maximum points from the contest so punters may have to speculate on the manner of the victory for Keld Bordinggaard’s charges, if they are to pocket a healthy profit.
Blue Square price the home side at 5/4 in the handicaps, where they give away a goal start to their opponents but given that Iceland have struggled in attack in the competition so far, the best bet could be Paddy Power’s 7/5 for Denmark to prevail ‘to nil’.
Switzerland have won both of their fixtures so far, beating the Danes and then Iceland, so it’s perhaps not surprising to them chalked up as odds-on favourites at 4/5 (Stan James) to make it three out of three as they tackle Belarus.
Having impressed so far, the Swiss have to be fancied but their opponents still have a hope of getting through and could prove tougher to beat than the odds suggest. A draw, at 13/5 with Coral, isn’t out of the question then and this could be a clash to watch rather than bet on.
