Norway v Denmark Preview, Women’s 2013 European Championship, Thursday 25th July 2013

Norway are on fire with a convincing win against Spain on Monday night and with young striker Ada Hegerberg smashing in a superb strike which has filled the teenager full of confidence for when she faces Denmark come Thursday evening. With Norway not hitting too many goals into the net so far in the competition its come with great excitement to finally see them win with having scored more than one goal and with Norway’s tactic of waiting until Spain started to tire they soon stepped up the pressure which allowed Solveig Gulbrandsen to neatly curl her shot into the top corner, which she later admitted was a pure accident.

Denmark must be kicking themselves as they sit in dreamland after beating France on penalties on Monday evening, a result that I am sure the world were not expecting after having witnessed France’s dominance of the group stage. Again the praise must go to goalkeeper Stina Petersen who once again pulls out all the stops for even more penalty stops. Not only did she save twice against Sweden which could of been the deciding factor they have even got this far as the result ending with a valuable point. Then again with saves in the penalty shootout which put the Danes through into an unexpected Semi-Final.

Norway v Denmark Team News

Norway Team News:

Norway have gone from strength to strength so far in this competition with incredible wins against current holders Germany and the high tempo Spanish while securing a solid position in the Semi-Final with unexpected opponents Denmark. With teenager Ada Hegerberg growing in confidence it wont come as a surprise to see the youngster starting on Thursday as well as fellow goalscorer Gulbrandsen who claimed her goal into the top corner was a fluke yet was just happy to see it fly into the net.

Denmark Team News:

It wont be too much of a surprise to see current tournament hero Stina Petersen in the starting lineup and if this game does go to penalties the Danish team will be brimming with confidence knowing she is between the sticks and with team mate Johanna Rasmussen who scored early against the French that will again only aid in her confidence when they come to face Norway on Thursday night. Denmark worked hard against the French and it will be important for them to have the same commitment against one of the tournament favorites Norway in this exciting Semi-Final match.

Who Has The Advantage?

If we look at the head to head stats you can see Denmark have the advantage here but with Norway playing so well in their convincing wins against Germany and Spain you would have to favor them as Denmark do not look the team they had the potential to be.

Average Goals Per Game?

In the last 5 games between these two Scandinavian sides we have only seen a total of 6 goals scored in open time which gives us a poor average of 1.2 goals per game, but with Norway now finding their shooting boots we could possibly see more against Denmark’s not so solid defense.
