Holders France face their toughest game in Group D as they take on Denmark at the Al Janoub Stadium on November 26th.

France got off to the perfect start as they beat Australia 4-1. Although the score-line looks thoroughly convincing, Les Bleus had to come from behind and did survive several scares along the way. Nevertheless, they created numerous chances and had they been a little more clinical, they could have notched six or seven and significantly boosted their goal difference in the process. This will be a little tougher.

Denmark couldn’t find a way past Tunisia on Tuesday afternoon with Kasper Hjulmund bemoaning his side’s first half performance. Having failed to find a way past Tunisia, the Danes simply must take something from this fixture. Having already beaten France in 2022, they will be feeling relatively confident.

10Bet have priced up France as the 20/23 favourites for this second fascinating encounter. Despite these odds, Denmark will not make it easy for Les Bleus and they are 16/5 with Bwin to repeat their trick from the Nations League and beat Les Bleus.

France vs Denmark Betting Tips

France are the holders and they have proven their effectiveness in major tournaments on numerous occasions. They have three points on the board and they will be keen to finish top of this section and get the job done with a game to spare. They have previously found Denmark tough opposition, however, they should be able to edge this fixture by a very slender margin


Denmark struggled to create chances easily against a stubborn Tunisian defence, however, France looked a little more generous during their victory over Australia. It’s hard to imagine the Danes drawing consecutive blanks at this tournament and they should be able to register.


Although he has clearly benefitted from the misfortune of other players, Olivier Giroud is a seasoned and trustworthy operator and he began the 2022 World Cup with a well-taken brace. He has enjoyed a terrific season In Serie A and should be able to add another goal to his impressive tally for 2022.


France vs Denmark Analysis


Although injuries haven’t helped their cause, Didier Deschamps was still able to name a formidable XI against Australia on Tuesday. He named an attacking XI and is unlikely to alter that bold approach here.

Key Player/s: Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann.

Team news: Theo Hernandez lasted less than 20 minutes on Tuesday night and he will be checked ahead of this game. With plenty of back-up options, he will probably be rested for this contest.

Predicted Lineup: Hugo Lloris, Dayot Upamecano, Jules Kounde, Benjamin Pavard, Ibrahima Konate, Aurelian Tchouameni, Ousmane Dembele, Adrien Rabiot, Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe, Olivier Giroud.


Christian Eriksen was the key men for Denmark once again in their goalless draw, however, he wasn’t able to unlock Tunisia’s defence. He’ll be hoping that France’s back-line is a little more accommodating. 

Key Player/s: Simon Kjaer, Christian Eriksen

Team news: Thomas Delaney was forced off with an injury against Tunisia and he will be assessed ahead of this contest. Kasper Hjulmund’s side faced a bruising encounter and several players may be carrying knocks ahead of this second Group D encounter. 

Predicted Lineup: Kasper Schmeichel, Joakim Maehle, Joachim Anderson  Andreas Christiensen, Rasmus Kristensen, Jens Stryger Larsen, Christian Eriksen, Pierre Emile-Hobjerg, Rasmus Hojlund, Mikkel Damsgaard, Kasper Dolberg

France vs Denmark Prediction

France showcased their impressive firepower during their 4-1 victory over Australia and Didier Deschamps’ attack-minded formation paid dividends. The Holders have an abundance of firepower and should be able to find a way past the Danes.

Denmark struggled against Tunisia, but they cannot afford to drop any more points here. They have plenty of options going forward and it’ll probably be a case of simply finding the right combination in the final third.
