            Denmark vs Sweden: Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips

            Sweden make the trip to Parken to take on Denmark on Wednesday in an international friendly. Denmark will look to set themselves up well for the European Championships with a win, whereas Sweden aim to grab a win before a summer without tournament football.

            Date: 05/06/2024

            Kick off time: 18:00

            Location: Parken

            After a strong showing in the qualifying for the Euros, Denmark will look to build some momentum before heading into the tournament this summer. Sweden just missed out on a spot at the Euros and will look to disrupt Denmark’s preparations.

            Denmark finished top of Group H during qualifying ahead of the likes of Slovenia, Finland, Kazakhstan, Northern Ireland and San Marino. In ten games, Denmark picked up seven wins, one draw and two losses, leaving them on 22 points, ahead of Slovenia on head-to-head.

            At the Euros, Denmark will compete in Group C. Here they will take on Slovenia again, Serbia and England. Denmark have recently returned to form in the competition with a Semi-finals appearance at the 2020 Championships, with their best ever result in the competition being their win in the 1992 Championships in Sweden.

            Sweden were drawn into a tough qualifying group for the Euros. In Group F Sweden took on Belgium, Austria, Azerbaijan and Estonia. In eight games, Sweden managed three wins, one draw and four losses, leaving them on ten points, nine points from qualification.

            This is the first time since 2000 that Sweden haven’t qualified for the Euros, with their best ever finish at the European Championships being a third-place finish in the 1992 Championships of which they were hosts.

            Denmark vs Sweden is a historic fixture with the two sides meeting 107 times in their histories, the first meeting coming back in 1913. Not much separates the two sides with Sweden picking up 46 wins and Denmark picking up 41 wins, with the other 20 games ending in a draw.

            The last five games in this fixture have seen two wins for Denmark, one win for Sweden and two draws. This fixture also usually sees only one side on the scoresheet with three of the last five games seeing one side score.

            Recent Form

            In their last five games in all competitions, Denmark have three wins, one draw and one loss.

            The trip to San Marino saw Hojlund open the scoring for Denmark just minutes before the halftime whistle. Alessandro Golinucci drew San Marino level on the hour mark but a late goal from Yussuf Poulsen secured the 2 - 1 win for Denmark.

            Denmark registered another 2 - 1 win the next time out against Slovenia. Joakim Mæhle gave Denmark the lead in the 26th minute but Erik Janza equalised for Slovenia before halftime. However, early in the second half, Thomas Delaney found the back of the net to give Denmark the 2 - 1 win.

            However, the trip to Northern Ireland saw Denmark handed a shock loss. After a goalless first half, both Isaac Price and Dion Charles scored to give Northern Ireland the 2 - 0 win even with Denmark having 80% of the possession.

            The first of the March international friendlies saw Denmark host Switzerland. Both sides had just two shots on target and failed to convert either of them as they both settled for the 0 - 0 draw.

            The last time out for Denmark was against the Faroes Islands. An early goal from Hojbjerg in the eighth minute and a second half goal from Mohamed Daramy wrapped up a comfortable 2 - 0 win for Denmark.

            In their last five games in all competitions, Sweden have three wins and two losses.

            Sweden were behind early on against Azerbaijan as Emin Mahmudov and Renat Dadashov both scored before the ten minute mark. Bahlul Mustafazada was sent off for Azerbaijan just before the hour mark but another goal from Mahmudov gave Azerbaijan the 3 - 0 win with just 36% of the possession.

            The next time out saw Sweden bounce back against Estonia. Viktor Claesson and Emil Forsberg were both on the scoresheet for Sweden in a 2 - 0 win over Estonia.

            In an international friendly in January, Sweden took on Estonia again. Kevor Palumets put Estonia ahead before the 20 minute mark but Sebastian Nanasi equalised before halftime. Early in the second half Isaac Kiese Thelin found the back of the net to secure the 2 - 1 win for Sweden.

            The trip to Portugal saw Rafael Leao, Matheus Nunes and Bruno Fernandes all score before halftime. Bruma added another before the hour mark but just one minute later Gyokeres got Sweden on the scoresheet. Goncalo Ramos restored the four goal cushion as the late goal from Gustaf Nilsson was a consolation goal for Sweden in the 5 - 2 loss.

            The most recent outing for Sweden was against Albania in another friendly. Nilsson scored the only goal of the game in the 62nd minute to give Sweden the 1 - 0 win, with Albania having just one shot on target.
