The Dutch can dominate the Danes

Tomorrow the Danes take on Holland at Soccer City. Holland are many people's outright favourites to win the tournament and after being shortened are priced at 9/1

Argentina arguably have the best attack at the  World Cup and even their bench looks quality, but after watching yesterday's match, you can see that they lack balance in the team.

Holland have a fantastic bunch of attacking players.

They have width in Robben, Van der Vaart and Sneijder and goalscorers in Huntelaar and Van Persie.

Unfortunately, Holland may not be able to call upon Robben because he injured his hamstring in the final minutes of the warm-up win against Hungary.

Denmark have far greater injury worries than Holland. A number of players are struggling for fitness - Tomasson, Kahlenberg, Bendtner, Kjaer and Sorrenson may all miss the match.

The Danes have a great first eleven but not much quality in-depth. They are a young squad but they have a few veteran stalwarts in Rommedahl, Gronkjaer and Tomasson.

I think a Holland win is a banker but they are a short price at 8/15. I fancy the Total Match Corners market Over 12 at 5/2. If Denmark do not put out their first eleven, Holland could take them apart.

Although Spain won Euro 2008, it was Holland who lit up the group stages. Holland play really wide and will play a lot of balls in the box to Van Persie.

The corner bet could be worth a flutter even if Robben does not start as they have more than adequate replacements.

The draw is 14/5 and the win for Denmark is 11/2.

The Total Goals market, has over 3 goals at 14/5, Holland recently beat Hungary 6-1 and they could score many goals against the Danes.

The Danes managed by Morten Olsen are a smart outfit but I have a feeling that with so many players not yet fully fit, they may not be fully focussed on the Dutch game.

They may cut their losses and look at winning their final two group games against more inferior opposition in Japan and Cameroon.

The Netherlands are 18/1 to win 4-0 and 50/1 to win 5-0, this could be a distinct possibility and although there have been few goals scored so far this tournament, the Dutch may lighten up the World Cup tomorrow.
