Final score: Denmark 0 – 0 France
You can bet on the next matches:
France entered the World Cup as the favourite to win Group C, but expects a fair bit of competition in its third game. Denmark will most likely be hunting second place.
Given what is at stake for Denmark, they won’t throw caution to the wind as a draw will be good enough to send them through. The French will play their normal brand of attacking football and should catch Denmark trying to be too defensive and that’s why Bet365 have France to record another 1-0 win at 6.00.
Both teams to score
With a by-no-means-comprehensive 1-0 win over Peru, France has sealed their place in the knockout stage. Denmark, however, are in a somewhat precarious position. After drawing 1-1 with Australia, Denmark sits just three points and two goals above Australia.
Australia will play the winless and goalless Peru in an attempt to claim three points, while Denmark will need a single point against France to guarantee progression to the next round. For Denmark to draw with France, Betstar is offering odds of 2.50..
There have already been two 1-0 results in Group C so far and this is locked in to be a cagey encounter, with Denmark wary of committing men forward. France to keep another opponent out with no to both to teams score is 1.62 with Betfair.
France to win and both teams not to score
Denmark comes into the game knowing that a draw will suffice, but France will look to press the offensive and score a goal to ensure that Denmark doesn’t break the tie and go to the top of the table with three points. Denmark has proven to be strong in defence and able to absorb pressure while being dangerous on the break.
However, if France pushes for a goal, their talented forward should be able to find spaces, particularly up the wing. At 1-0 up, France could sit deep, close down Christian Eriksen, and shut out the Danes. Denmark would need to press to ensure progression, but France has strong midfielders and central defenders who could stave off Denmark’s up-the-middle approach to their attack. For France to win and both teams not to score, bet365 gives odds of 3.10.
Why Should I Bet On Denmark vs France?
Matchday three is upon us and Group C is shaping up as expected. France have already qualified for the round of 16 with a 1-0 win over Peru but Denmark still have a bit of work to do if they are to join their European counterparts. Having only managed a draw with Australia, Denmark will need a result from this game to ensure they don’t get overtaken, should the Socceroos beat Peru. France go in as favourites and, having won their first two games already, they should win again – William Hill are backing Les Bleus at 2.30 to get the job done.
Out of the four games that Denmark and France have played at the World Cup only one fixture has seen more than two goals recorded. Another low scoring affair is expected and Under 2.5 Goals is a good option with Centrebet at 1.36.
Denmark vs France Preview
Ideally, Denmark would have been aiming to capture three points against Australia but a draw has left them vulnerable to elimination still. France have no such worries and may choose to rest a few key players. Even if Didier Deschamps does decide to do that, his fringe players should have enough quality to beat Denmark still.
Kylian Mbappe to score anytime
Kylian Mbappe has been great to watch on the ball. The 19-year-old’s bravery, footwork, and strength have made him a major threat up the wing. He’ll be looking to exploit full-backs Henrik Dalsgaard and Jens Stryger Larsen, who were bested by Peru’s speedy and tricky wingers when they met in the first game.
Mbappe scored the game-deciding goal against Peru, having started on the right wing. Olivier Giroud started as the centre-forward, which helped to give Mbappe and Griezmann more room to operate in the early phases of the game when they wanted to attack. Giroud’s ability to draw centre-backs and outmuscle them in the air will engineer chances for Mbappe. For the young Frenchman to score anytime in the game, William Hill gives odds of 3.00.
Group C is tightly contested, with Denmark and Australia vying for the remaining spot in the round of 16. It is advantage Denmark but as long as the Socceroos have a chance, nothing is decided yet.
