Christian Eriksen Tipped To Strike For Denmark Against Ireland In Dublin

The 2018 World Cup play-off between Republic of Ireland and Denmark is finely poised ahead of the second leg at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on Tuesday night, and we fancy a moment of magic could settle this tie after the pair drew 0-0 in Copenhagen in the first leg...

  • Republic of Ireland's five World Cup qualifiers in Dublin produced a grand total of six goals
  • Christian Eriksen has scored eight goals in his last nine appearances for Denmark

The Match Betting

The Irish approached the first leg in exactly the fashion you would imagine as they defended resolutely to frustrate the Danes on what was a poor pitch and Martin O'Neill is now one game away from guiding the country to the finals of a World Cup for the first time since 2002.

Ireland are 21/10 for the win (Paddy Power) at this stage but this is such a difficult game to call and their return of two wins from five home games (drew two, lost one) in Dublin during the group stages of qualifying hardly inspires confidence.

Those five home World Cup qualifiers produced a grand total of six goals so it is no surprise to see that under 2.5 goals is 4/9 odds-on this week (PaddyPower.com).

However, the better quality of the surface at the Aviva Stadium could suit Denmark, who are 1/2 to qualify for Russia, and they know that an away goal could be enough to take them through.
Match Odds:

Eriksen To Strike

Age Hareide's side recovered from a slow start to World Cup qualifying to finish second to Poland in their group and their away form was solid enough - won three, drew one, lost one.

They are marginal favourites in the match betting at 8/5 but it is the form of Christian Eriksen which catches our eye.

The Tottenham playmaker has scored eight goals in his last nine appearances for Denmark and he scored in six games in a row for his country prior to the first leg of this play-off. Eriksen is always a threat from set pieces, from distance and he takes penalties so a moment of magic from him could be enough to settle this match, with Bet Victor going 17/5 for him to score at anytime.
