The World Cup Qualifying Group One will see a titanic battle between Denmark and Portugal in Parken Stadium, Copenhagen. This game could decide whether Portugal will make it to the World Cup finals in South Africa next year. They are currently third in the group and needing a good result in Copenhagen.

The Danish team is leading group one with 16 points after 7 games played. They are undefeated in their World Cup campaign and could go on and qualify first in the group if they beat Portugal this Saturday. Coach Morten Olsen has given a late call up to Søren Rieks, Esbjerg fB, after Martin Bernburg, Brøndby IF, pulled out with a knee injury. Chris Sørensen has also pulled out of the squad while goal keeper Jesper Christiansen damaged his elbow which will be replaced by Kim Christensen. Goal keeper Thomas Sørensen is suspended against Portugal and Olsen will have to select carefully who his first choice goal keeper will be for the crucial match.

Portugal will be bringing all the big names to Copenhagen. Coach Llido Vale has brought in Boswinga, Carvalho, Nani, Deco, Ronaldo and Gomes for the crucial match against the Danes in Denmark. Portugal is currently third in group one with 9 points after 6 games. They are 4 points from Hungary who is currently second in the group. If they want to qualify for the world cup then they need to start winning soon or otherwise they will have a good vacation next summer. The Portugal national team could deploy Sporting Lissabon top scorer Liedson in the front after Hugo Almeida received an injury.

Denmark are undefeated in Parken Stadium and Portugal have got most of their points away from home. The Danes beat Portugal 3-2 back in September 2008 so this time around the Portuguese will have to go to Denmark in search for 3 points. The Danes will have to be cautious or otherwise it could be an embarrassing defeat.  A draw could be the ideal score line of the night and Betsson is offering 3.20 for a draw.
