Denmark travel to Italy in a World Cup qualifying clash from Group B with the Wolfsburg player expecting a positive result for the visitors.

"I'm sure I'll do a good job on Tuesday and will stop Mario pretty well," Kjaer told reporters.

"We have faced many great strikers and Balotelli will not do anything different from the others.

"We all know what Balotelli can do. You could say he was one of the main strikers for the Azzurri in the European Championship, but they have so many good players that it would be wrong to focus on just Mario."

Previously, Italy toiled to a 3-1 win at Armenia while Group B rivals Denmark were only able to pick up a point from a 1-1 draw during Friday's World Cup qualifier against Bulgaria despite playing with an extra man for more than an hour in Sofia.

Italy currently sit atop Group B with seven points from three games - Denmark lie second from bottom with two points but they have only played two rounds of fixtures.
