Denmark vs Scotland team news
John McGinn will miss the trip after testing positive for Covid-19, while Stuart Armstrong and Scott McTominay have both withdrawn from the squad due to injury.
Philip Billing is unavailable for the hosts due to illness, with Jannik Vestergaard, Rasmus Falk and Andreas Cornelius all pulling out with injuries.
Denmark vs Scotland preview
Although their long-awaited appearance at Euro 2020 was certainly not without its positives, the Tartan Army were knocked out at the group stage thanks largely to a failure to turn chances into goals.
Having hit the net just once in three group games at the Euros, they are unlikely to pose too much of a threat to a home side that have only conceded eight goals in their last 20 fixtures in their own backyard.
Indeed, McGinn’s absence is particularly damaging as he has scored three of his side’s seven goals in qualification so far and usually provides a key threat from midfield.
With Kasper Hjulmand’s team on a high after their impressive showing at Euro 2020, they will be extremely confident of extending their 100 per cent record in this World Cup qualification campaign when they take on a blunt Scotland side.
Denmark vs Scotland predictions
In fact, odds of 6/5 (2.20) seem generous on Denmark winning to nil for the eighth time in 13 fixtures on home turf on current form.
All odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
