This is one of the crucial matches in the World Cup Qualifying Group One schedule where Denmark will take on their brother, Sweden for a place in World Cup finals 2010. The Danes are leading Group One with 18 points and 3 more than their Scandinavian neighbor while Portugal and Hungary are on 13 points. A home win for Denmark could guarantee the red and white colors been represented in South Africa.
Coach Morten Olsen has selected a 22 men squad for his World Cup qualifying encounter against both Sweden and Hungary during the International week. Both matches will be played in Parken and Denmark have a big chance to get that one point they need to qualify for the World Cup. Olsen will be welcoming Liverpool’s defender, Daniel Aggar back to the Danish squad after recovering from his back injury. He will also have the luxury of having Nicklas Bendter and Jon Dahl Tomasson available to lead the Danish front lines.
Sweden needs to get over their disappointing 1-0 defeat last time they met Denmark in Rasunda. If they want to qualify for the World Cup then this match is a crucial one for the Swedes as they have both Hungary and Portugal breathing on the neck. Coach Lars Lagerback will need to set his tactics to attack and get at least a point against Denmark. Lagerback will be sweating to get Zlatan Ibrahimovic fit for the match so he can partner up with Johan Elmander upfront.
Denmark needs one point while Sweden needs four points to guarantee the two spot available for the World Cup in Group one. Not to point out the obvious conspiracy but a point for both teams would not harm their quest for the World Cup. Denmark might have less pressure on them so a safe bet on a draw is a good choice. Check out Betsson as they are offering 3.25 for a draw.
