Denmark vs Sweden tips and predictions: Back the Danes to keep Swedes quiet

Denmark will step up their preparations for Euro 2024 by hosting a familiar foe in Sweden at Parken on Wednesday night (1800 BST).

Denmark and Sweden have clashed over 100 times in international football and will do so once again in Copenhagen on Wednesday evening.

The two teams have faced each other no less than 107 times so far, with Sweden claiming 46 wins to Denmark’s 41, while 20 games ended as a draw. 

The last game between the two teams was a friendly game played in November 2020. The Danes won 2-0 in Brondby with goals from Jonas Wind and Alexander Bah.

The hosts are preparing for Euro 2024 and will no doubt look to repeat the performance from the previous European Championship when they reached the semi-finals.

Despite being clear favourites to top the group, the Danes were given a run for their money by Slovenia, who also finished on 22 points.


On the other hand, Sweden are in decline. They were a clear second-best to Belgium and Austria throughout qualification and even lost 3-0 to Azerbaijan.

They finished the group 10 points behind Belgium and nine points behind Austria. In their most recent friendlies, they squeezed past Estonia and Albania before being thumped by Portugal.

The Swedes will be desperate for a result against an old foe, but they’ll be without the services of Viktor Gyokeres. He scored 29 goals this campaign and has withdrawn due to injury.

Rasmus Hojlund, Christian Eriksen, Andreas Christensen, Kasper Schmeichel or Simon Kjaer headline a typically strong Danish side, but natives think the midfield looks soft.

That shouldn’t matter much against this Sweden side, who seem to lack the steel to exploit that.
