PORTUGAL - DENMARK ...........

Denmark failed to breakdown a dogged Hungarian defence at the weekend, but gave away little defensively and it is their turn to put up the shutters tonight, facing a home side that remain without Ronaldo and Quaresma. Portugal come here on the back of two easy wins over minnows Faroe Islands (5-0) and Malta (4-0), however, it is worthy of note that the goals took some time to come. Three came in the second half against Malta and the same number arrived in the last 4 minutes against the Faroes.

Now that they meet a much more talented outfit, we can take a chance on them being similarly tardy this evening. I expect the Danes to keep things very tight early, as they have done ever since the debacle in Copenhagen against Sweden. In eight competitive starts since that fateful night, only European champions Spain, have scored a first half goal against them. In what will be a half empty stadium, I will take the half time draw and also chance a little on the visitors holding out for the full 90 minutes.

4 points half time draw 2.25 +.... circa 2.375 Bet 365 /exchanges.

2 points full time draw 4.10 exchanges.

Back Later.
