Coach Morten Olsen did not reveal his line-up at a press conference but assured everyone that the match will be by no means a walkover.
"Bosnia-Herzegovina is certainly not a walkover," said Olsen. "It will be a real tough job.
"We shall break down their wall and make sure they don't break through on counter attacks.
Ç£It is very important that people keep in mind that this kind of match will require patience.
"Our players will work real hard to break down the wall, but it will be a tough match.
"We shall be careful not to get too many people ahead of the ball. We have to analyse what is best for the side and in the long run it is a matter of winning."
Everton midfield terrier Thomas Gravesen hopes to lead Denmark to another win that will keep them above Scandinavian rivals Norway and told Ekstra Bladet:
"It has been one of the most turbulent weeks in my football career. The perfect conclusion of an extraordinary time with the squad would be a Danish win over Bosnia.
"It doesn't matter to me how we win as long as we do win," added the combative star.
After scoring a wonder goal against Romania on Saturday, Gravesen says he does not expect to repeat his goal scoring feat against the Bosnians.
"I don't think so. I believe Claus Jensen will score a couple of goals and that Ebbe Sand will shut up the critics who have harassed him because he has not scored for Schalke since December.
"Ebbe showed in Romania that he is someone who works hard for the side and we cannot do without him.
"One of the things I enjoy most in an international is when we celebrate a goal together. That is something I hope to experience in Parken tonight."
With Christian Poulsen ruled out of the clash with an ankle injury, Charlton Athletic midfielder Claus Jensen is expected to fight for his place with Brondby's Morten Wieghorst but the former Bolton man was taking nothing for granted: "I hope there will be a place for me, but I don't expect anything.
"I don't think you can do that."
Wolfsburg defender Thomas Rytter is expected to be given a berth at right back ahead of Panathinaikos star Jan Michaelsen.
"I am more of a defensive type which Morten prefers for a tough match but it is hard to tell if it will be me or the more offensive Jan Michaelsen."
