Italy vs Denmark Preview:
Both teams need to prove that they can show a great football at the World Cup. Italy currently stands on the top of Group B.
Italy takes eighth place in the FIFA World Rankings. They have scored nineteen goals in last eleven matches and conceded twelve. Denmark goes the eighteenth in the ranking. Denmark have scored twelve goals in eleven matches and conceded fifteen. Italy were finalists at Euro 2012, losing 4-0 to Spain. Andrea Pirlo proved that he is one of the best midfields in the world.
Niklas Bendtner is Denmark’s best player. But he didn’t have game practice at Arsenal, and he isn’t a first team choice at Juventus.
Italy played very well against Germany in the semi-finals of Euro 2012. Italy had 59% of possession against Armenia last week and created a lot of goal occasions. A similar ball control and dominance is not only one thing what they need against Denmark.
Following their unimpressive win against Armenia, Italy welcomes Denmark.
Cesare Prandelli’s has to do something with defensive errors. So, Giorgio Chiellini and partners will have to please their manager. Also Prandelli has to replace Gianluigi Buffon by Napoli keeper Morgan De Sanctis. But there is more positive news concerning Mario Balotelli, who is ready to play.
Denmark will be looking to back their form and the last Euro’s character. As they had drawn their opening two games and lies second from bottom of Group B.
The coach Morten Olsen will be hoping that a win over the Euro finalists will put a good start of his team’s campaign.
