The 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers continue this weekend in group F with the Faroe Islands hosting Denmark on Saturday in the fifth round at the Torsovollur.

The Faroe Islands have picked up just one point so far in their qualification campaign, scoring just twice and conceding 12 goals. They are joint on points with last-place Moldova but sit a place above them in the table due to a better goal difference.

The Faroe Islands have picked up just one win in their last nine games and are currently on a run of three consecutive defeats in the qualifiers. They sit 11 points behind their visitors and need an unlikely win to keep their qualification hopes alive.

Denmark have performed outstandingly well in their qualification campaign so far. They have won all four of their games and are yet to concede any goals. They sit top of the table five points clear of second-placed Israel.

Denmark defeated Israel 2-0 in their first qualifier. They then defeated Moldova 8-0 in their next game before winning 4-0 against Austria. The Danes then picked up their fourth win on Wednesday with a 2-0 victory over Scotland.
