Denmark’s Golden Chance To Qualify For World Cup

Denmark’s Golden Chance To Qualify For World Cup

Match date: 07 September 2013

Venue: Ta’Qali


Denmark has the opportunity to move out of the bottom 2 and topple Armenia in Group B of FIFA’s qualifying round when they face Malta in Ta’Qali.


Martin Olsen and his men cannot afford to miss the possibility of improving their World Cup bid in the battle against Malta. The squad must show the same degree of intensity when they thrashed Czech Republic last March.

Despite being a minnow in the group, Denmark should not dismiss the fact that Malta will be playing in its own territory. Such set-up automatically earns them the home court advantage. Like Denmark, Malta also wants to capitalize on the said opportunity. This is its chance to secure its first victory in the qualifying stages of the prestigious tournament.


Should De Rød-Hvide win the match (which is a very big possibility), not only will it overtake Armenia, but also level with Czech Republic.


Compared to its opponent, Denmark fared better in the qualifying matches. Although it only has a single victory to boot, it has managed to force a draw in 3 of its past encounters. This is in stark contrast to Malta, which lost in 5 matches and won once. In terms of their winning stats, the Denmark and Malta stand on the same ground. However, when it comes to other aspects of the tournament, Denmark has the edge.


Yet, as mentioned, they cannot be too overconfident. They still need to embark on a journey and acclimatize long before the anticipated triumph comes to place.
