Denmark has fallen to the fourth place and are eight points behind the leading Italy, but they have a game in hand. By winning at home against Armenia, they will reduce the gap separating them from second placed Bulgaria to just one point which would put them within striking distance.
Bet: Denmark -1,5 Goals
Odds: Betfair 1.90
The hosts need to do something about their offensive, as using a single striker is obviously not working for them. Denmark scored just one goal at home and this rendered the efforts of their otherwise solid defense virtually irrelevant. Cornelius found himself isolated upfront with Rommedahl playing as midfielder alongside Eriksen and Braithwaite. Even if coach Olsen decides to stick to this starting formation, he will need to ask his players to play more aggressively.
They have plenty of reasons to put any precautions aside and come out firing on all cylinders from the first minute. Their opponents are a mediocre team of Armenia who recently lost at home to Malta and failed to score a single goal. The visitors will once again play a defensive minded football with Movsisyan spearheading the attack, but he is hardly a threat for Denmark. Those who suspect that the recent defeat to Malta was only a fluke should think twice because earlier this year Armenia drew 1-1 away at Luxembourg one of the weakest teams in European football.
Any other outcome except for a convincing victory would be regarded as a disaster for Denmark, who is playing with his back to the wall. Punters enjoy odds of 1.90 with Betfair if they are willing to trust the hosts to cover the -1,5 spread, a risk that they should gladly take.
