The national team's players and Football Association failed to reach an agreement regarding an ongoing commercial dispute ahead of Wednesday's friendly clash with Slovakia.
That meant John Jensen was put in temporary charge and a squad largely made up of part time and futsal players took the field, ending in a 3-0 defeat.
While the parties are back in talks ahead of the Wales clash, such build up is far from ideal preparation, especially as the issue is yet to be fully resolved.
Denmark's return to full strength has moved the prices back to where you'd expect but this isn't the most intimidating of international trips.
Hareide's side have played 11 games (excluding a non-FIFA friendly) as the home side in the last two years. They failed to win five of those including clashes with Chile, Republic of Ireland and Montenegro.
Wales meanwhile, have only lost one of their previous six away games (2-0 to France) and the visitors should prove a tough nut to crack this time around too.
Coming into this clash off the back of a 4-1 thrashing of Republic of Ireland on Thursday, Giggs' side look very capable of doing some damage against a team that have endured such a disrupted build up.
Gareth Bale became the first Welshman to score 30 international goals last time out and the Real Madrid forward is the focal point of what looks a very solid Wales unit.
45/17 (3.65) on an away win might be a step too far but backing the visitors to avoid defeat in their second Nations League clash at 4/5 (1.80) with 888Sport looks a great bet given the issues continuing to surround the Danish national side.
