Group C – Samara Stadium – TV: ITV
France are favourites in Group C but behind Les Bleus, it looks wide open. Denmark are well fancied to follow their European counterparts into the round of 16 and they’ll be hoping that Christian Eriksen can weave his magic against the Socceroos. Australia are still adapting to life under Bert Van Marwijk and they will be hoping to spring a surprise at the Samara Arena.
Denmark vs Australia Predictions
This match looks tough to predict but Denmark should have the edge. They managed to pick up three points despite not being at their best and that is always a good sign. Sides who prevail at tournaments tend to find a way of picking up victories regardless of performance. Australia are unlikely to carry the same threat as Peru, although the Socceroos are also well-organised and tough to break down. This game could be decided by a single moment and it’s likely to be Denmark’s day. They are 4/5 with 888Sport.
Denmark vs Australia Preview
This second Group C game could be potentially decisive with both sides desperate to pick up three points. Australia can’t afford to suffer another defeat but they’ve got their toughest game out of the way. Bert Van Marwijk’s men look reasonably tough to break down and could cause Denmark a few issues.
Age Hareide’s side were fairly fortunate against Peru with Kasper Schmeichel putting in an inspired performance. The Danes still have to play 1998-winners France and they will hope to go into that game with six points under their belt.
Denmark vs Australia Correct Score Prediction
Despite their quality in the final third, Australia kept France off the score-sheet until midway through the second half. They are unlikely to have too many lapses in concentration and could keep the Danish attack quiet throughout this one. Denmark have some decent finishers in their side and Christian Eriksen is extremely capable from a set-piece situation. It’s likely to be a narrow victory for the Scandinavians. 1-0 Denmark is 43/10 with Royal Panda.
Under 2.5 Goals is the likely outcome of this clash. Neither side will give much away defensively and it could be a tight and tense 90 minutes. Both teams played out goalless first halves in their opening Group C clash and Under 2.5 Goals can be backed at 3/5 with Bet365.

Group C Standings

Bert Van Marwijk’s side have got their toughest match out of the way and have managed to keep their goal difference respectable.
