Croatia and Denmark to leave top spot up for grabs

With France surprisingly out of the running to finish top of Group 1 of the UEFA Nations 'A' League, Denmark are in pole position to claim it and qualify for the mini-tournament afterwards. They head to the Stadion Maksimir in Zagreb to face Croatia, full in the knowledge that a win will seal their place. They know though that very few sides go to the backyard of Vatreni and come away with a victory. Read our preview here:

Changing of the Gvard

Joško Gvardiol is a name that has been on the radars of many elite clubs in Europe for a few years now, despite only being 20 now. The left-sided defender has been a key part of both RB Leipzig's and Zlatko Dalić's plans for quite some time now, and it will be up to him and partner Domagoj Vida to snuff out Kasper Dolberg's runs in behind on Thursday night. Elsewhere, there are no major injury concerns, so a full-strength side with the erratically effective Andrej Kramarić leading the line should take to the field.

No Joakim around

Kasper Hjulmand will be missing several faces from his matchday squad, including Jonas Wind, Robert Skov, and Andreas Cornelius. He is set to deploy a 3-4-2-1 to try to counter the strength of the hosts' midfield, with Martin Braithwaite in particular taking up a relatively deep position when the opposition have the ball. Christian Eriksen will look to pick some passes from the base to turn the home side. The versatile Joakim Mæhle, who can play on either flank, is set to be deployed at left wing-back where he has a one in three goal record for the national side. The threat he possesses cannot be ignored.

Betting tip

bet365 have odds of 3.20 for a draw that will keep both sides dreaming of securing top spot.
