The next prestigious tournament in International Football begins with the Euro 2016 Qualifying Campaign.
Euro 2016 Qualifying
Denmark AH:0,-0.25 to beat Albania @ 1.95 (Betfair) – 2.5 points
Denmark DC to beat Albania @ 2.00 (Betfair) – 2.5 points (#INPLAYMAGIC)
Denmark come into this fixture against Albania after a confident 2-1 win over Armenia. Don’t get fooled from the outset that Armenia will lose; they actually beat Portugal 1-0 in their last outing. But hey, Portugal has been completely disastrous and been a one man army for the last few years.
Let’s focus on Denmark now; they have really started developing quality players and are now ready to take themselves back among the top tier of teams in Europe. The creativity, playmaking and dictating the dempo all relies on one man Christian Eriksen, who has become the most important player in this team. With the ability to pick a pass like a threat through a needle, to take shots from outside the box as well as free kick abilities, make this lad world class without a doubt. But he wouldn’t be able to do this without a supporting cast around him with the likes of Krohn-Dehli, Schone, Bendtner, Agger, Kjaer, Poulsen, Schemeichel who are all now more experienced then they were during the World Cup 2014 campaign that sets them up well.
Albania on the other hand were extremely lucky to steal the 3 points against Portugal the last time around, who then did not have their star man Cristiano Ronaldo, who the team completely revolves around on. Cana & Xhaka are the most notable names from their team, with many other beginning their fledgling careers in the lower-mid strength European teams.
Denmark know that 2 wins from 2 will put them right at the top of their group ahead of Portugal and Serbia, who will be the major threat in this group.
Serbia to beat Armenia @ 1.80 (Betfair) – 2.5 points
Serbia come into this group as one of the high favorite teams to qualify for Euro 2016; and will begin their campaign against an Armenian squad who played a good match last time around Denmark.
Serbia have qualified to the group stage of the World Cup back in 2006 and 2010; but have not qualified for the Euros since the year 2000; and will be determined more than ever with the new format and more teams to qualify to make sure they are part of this event. Serbia have played well in their friendly the last time around against France where they drew 1-1. Their players are getting recognized more and more and play for some of the biggest clubs in the world these days. The likes of Kolarov, Ivanvoic, Nastasic, Tosic, Tadic, Matic, Markovic and Dordevic are playing for some of the big clubs in England, Italy and Russia and are looking to build on their experience to ensure they qualify for this tournament
Armenia have frequently relied on their best player Mkhitaryan; who will unfortunately not take part in this fixture due to injury. In the year 2014, they have won just 1 match by the score of 4-3 against UAE; which if you ask me UAE deserved to get a draw out of it, as Armenia were all over the place. Out of the 7 goals they have scored this year, 4 from from Mkhitaryan; but others also scored have been pretty much in losing causes.
Serbia look far too strong on paper and talent, and now it will be up to this talent to showcase to the World and the best of Europe that they are ready to take it to the next level by winning tonight.
