Denmark – Malta tonight in Copenhagen

Malta plays Denmark tonight at Copenhagen’s Parken Stadium on the final day of  qualifiers  for FIFA  World Cup 2014.

After a disappointing 4-1 loss to the Czech Republic at Ta’ Qali last Friday, Malta faces an uphill task against the Danes. Despite their very slim chances of progress towards next summer’s finals in Brazil as group runners-up, Denmark will at least want to end on a high note.

Denmark are currently second in the group on equal point with Bulgaria who however have a vastly superior goal difference; so if Bulgaria beat the Czech Republic at home tonight even with a minimum scoreline, the Danes will have to hit at least eight past Malta to make up the difference and snatch the runner-up spot.

But even so, Denmark would have to rely on a combination of unlikely results in other groups to qualify for the play-offs as one of the eight best-placed runners-up.

Ghedin was quite blunt at yesterdays’s official press conference: he said it will be tough but his players can’t do much worse than they did against the Czechs. He paid tribute to Malta’s opponents tonight, saying Denmark deserved to beat group winners Italy last Friday, but he expects a better performance from his boys today.

Striker Andre Schembri returns to the squad from suspension but Malta will be missing Gareth Sciberras and Jonathan Caruana, both at home nursing injuries, and stopper Luke Dimech is a doubtful starter after seemingly ccmplaining of a muscle strain at yesterday’s open training session. Denmark too have two-goal hero against Italy Nicklas Bendtner out suspended along with two other players.
