Denmark can count themselves lucky to have 4 points after two rounds. They managed to beat Peru in the first round, although they weren’t the better team. They also struggled in the game against Australia, in which the Aussies had more goal attempts and slightly more possession. Still, no one can deny their quality. There are some really top-class players in this team, starting with their number 10 Christian Eriksen.

Tottenham midfielder is famous for his passing and creativity, so it wouldn’t be a big surprise if he managed to cause a lot of problems to the French in the next game. But, what’s really important for them in this game is not to lose. Denmark will have to focus more on defending, as losing this match would mean that Australia could overtake the second spot.

The good news for Denmark is that they’re very strong defensively. Apart from their goalkeeper, Kasper Schmeichel, they have very good center-backs, including their captain Simon Kjaer and Chelsea’s prospect Andreas Christensen. But, do these guys have what it takes to stop France attackers, who are considered cream of the crop of world’s football?


Surely, you may argue that France haven’t been too impressive so far, but they’ve achieved what they wanted. They have a 100% winning rate and have already booked a place in the Round of 16. Truth be told, most people did expect them to be more dominating in the games against Australia and Peru, but maybe they were just getting ready for the big games.

France are among the biggest favorites for winning the tournament, which isn’t a big surprise considering that their squad is full of top-level players. In fact, they seem to have at least one amazing player in each position.

Of course, their strongest point seems to be their attack, where they have Griezmann, Mbappe, Giroud, and Fekir. These guys look capable of beating any defense in the world, so it would be a kind of surprise if France failed to score a single goal against Denmark.

Considering their player pedigree, France seem like absolute favorites here. But, there’s one tiny thing about this match that conspiracy theorists will love – the winner of the Group C takes on the runner-up if the Group C, which may very well be Argentina. Actually, if Argentina beat Nigeria, they will probably grab the second spot on the table. So, perhaps the French won’t be too motivated to beat Denmark on Tuesday afternoon.

Possible Lineups


Schmeichel – Kjaer, Christensen, Dalsgaard, Larsen – Erisken, Schone, Delaney – Sisto, Poulsen, Jorgensen


Lloris – Umtiti, Varane, Sidibe, Mendy – Matuidi, Kante, Lemar – Griezmann, Mbappe, Giroud

Denmark vs. France Match Prediction

We still haven’t seen a single match without any goals at the World Cup 2018, so this one may be it. We probably won’t see too many goals as neither team needs to rush to get a win. Still, betting on Correct Score 0:0 might seem too risky, but putting your money on Under 2.5 Goals does seem like a good choice.
