      It is has been a terrible qualification campaign for the hosts and they are one of the few sides to have already been completely eliminated with a return of just 1 point from 6 matches so far. Denmark are assured of at least a play-off place but it is more likely to be that than automatic qualification if they fail to win here given their final game is away to Portugal and they are only currently a point clear of 3rd place Albania, who have a game in hand.

      In short Denmark needs to win this game but on Friday against Albania in Copenhagen they were desperately lacking in creativity without their usual creator-in-chief Christian Eriksen who is recovering from injury and isn’t part of their squad for these games.

      Nicolai Jørgensen and Nicolas Bendtner led the line but they failed to break through in a game that ended goalless and it is hardly an attacking unit that inspires you with confidence. There have been over 2.5 goals in just 2 of Denmark’s 6 matches so far in this group and you can certainly see this developing into a low scoring game with Armenia likely to try to stifle their attacking intent and try to catch them on the break.

      Although Armenia are on an awful run which has seen them lose 9 of their last 10 matches, they are rarely well beaten and 5 of their 6 defeats in this group have been by a single goal.

      Therefore this is likely to be tight with little in the way of goalmouth action and there is value in backing there to be 2 or fewer goals in the game at 7/10.

      In terms of a correct score than 0-0 or perhaps a 1-0 away win are the ones that stick out. These two sides met in World Cup qualifying last time around and this fixture was settled by just one goal, a penalty  from Daniel Agger to give the visitors the win.

      Armenia’s 4-0 win in Denmark earlier in that group is now looking more and more like a freak result but with the countries once again in the same group for World Cup 2018 qualifying, Armenia will be eager to put in a good showing in their penultimate competitive game before that gets under way next year.

      Therefore, much like Albania on Friday they could well frustrate Denmark, who are simply not the same side without Eriksen into a 0-0 draw which can be backed at 8/1.
