Why France is a good play versus Denmark

Throw out the 2-0 loss to Denmark in France’s final Nations League match before the World Cup. France proved in their first game against the Aussies that they’re as strong as ever.

Not only did France score 4 goals, but they did so with Paul Pogba and Karim Benzema out due to injuries. Oliver Giroud got the start and he dropped 2. 

Kylian Mbappe, arguably the best player in the world right now, scored in the 68th minute. Adrien Rabiot got a goal. France is focused.

Why Denmark is a good play versus France

Denmark and their fans had to be disappointed after the best the Danes could do in their first World Cup match was force a 0-0 draw against Tunisia. 

The Danes were supposed to trounce Tunisia and set up a massive contest against France. The Tunisians, though, are better than many believe.

Tunisia had the perfect defense to counter Christian Eriksen’s brilliance. Not only that, but let’s be honest. Denmark had to have their minds on this match versus the French, which might explain why they were so lackadaisical in the draw against Tunisia.

Final Betting Analysis: Denmark vs. France

No doubt, France is one of the favorites to win the World Cup. However, the Danes did beat France in the last head-to-head. 

Not only that, but France could bounce after playing such a fantastic match versus Australia. Make no mistake, Tunisia shouldn’t stamp their ticket to the Round of 16.

But Tunisia is a much better team than the Aussies. So if Denmark was looking ahead, and Tunisia is underrated, the draw versus the Tunisians makes sense. 

Eriksen will be at his best in this match. Expect Denmark to play much better, good enough to force a draw. 

World Cup Pick: Draw
