Why Tunisia is a good play versus Denmark
Brazil blasted Tunisia 5-1 in their last match on Sep. 27. But leading up to that game, the Tunisians had played great soccer.
Tunisia beat Chile, a great team that was unlucky not to qualify for the World Cup, 2-0. Then in their next match versus WC qualifying Japan, Tunisia rolled to a 3-0 win. The Tunisians took a breather versus both Comoros Islands and Brazil. The underdog should be back to playing their usual brand of tough defensive soccer on Tuesday.

- W – 0-1 vs. Comoros Islands
- W – 0-3 vs. Japan

Why Denmark is a good play versus Tunisia
At EURO 2020, Christian Eriksen suffered a heart attack that kept him from playing in the tournament. Denmark rallied all the way to the EURO 2020 semifinals, falling to England 2-1.
The Danes played great against top competition without Eriksen. Christian is back and he’s ready. Eriksen will ensure Denmark gets a leg up on rival France in Group D with a huge victory against Tunisia.

Final Betting Analysis: Denmark vs Tunisia
Tunisia does have a good defense. But on Tuesday, the Tunisians must play one of the better teams at the World Cup.
The 2022 World Cup Denmark squad has played well together for years. Eriksen is their unquestioned leader while players Martin Braithwaite and Andreas Christensen have built fantastic UEFA resumes.
Denmark rocked France in their last Nations League match. The Danes are good enough to upset France and win Group D. The key will be how well Denmark plays together, which is a good thing because the Danes are one of the most cohesive teams in the world.
Denmark may not win their group. But they should have no trouble moving to the knockout stage, which means the Danes beat Tunisia by at least a goal on Tuesday.
