Livescore | Match Prediction & Tips| Asian Handicap Odds|Line-ups& H2H Stats


Denmark and Belgium will kick off their respective 2020-21 UEFA Nations League campaigns with a clash in Group 2 of League A on Saturday night.Iceland and England also make up what is a very interesting group, and both Denmark and Belgium will be keen to get their tournaments off to a strong start this weekend.


Match preview

Denmark won two and drew two of their four group matches against Wales and the Republic of Ireland in the 2018-19 UEFA Nations League to ensure that they would be promoted to League A.The Red and Whites will face a much higher level of opposition this time around, and it remains to be seen how they perform in a group that also includes England and Iceland.Kasper Hjulmand's side will be present at next summer's European Championships, having claimed second position in Group D behind Switzerland, remaining unbeaten in their eight matches.Denmark are actually unbeaten in their last 15 matches in all competitions, meanwhile, but they have lost six of their previous 13 international encounters with Belgium.Belgium were incredibly unfortunate to miss out on a spot in the semi-finals of the 2018-19 UEFA Nations League as they actually won three of their four group matches against Switzerland and Iceland.A 5-2 loss to Switzerland in their final group game meant that they did not advance, though, and the European nation might feel that they have some unfinished business in this competition.Roberto Martinez's side, who will take on Iceland in their next game on September 8, breezed through their Euro 2020 qualification group, winning all 10 matches to collect 30 points.The Red Devils have actually won every match since losing to Switzerland back in November 2018, and there is no question that they are now one of the most talented international teams on the planet.
