Denmark vs France preview, betting tips and prediction
A draw will see Les Bleus top Group C
France to win and BTTS with Coral
France and Denmark clash in the final Group C game knowing a point will be enough for them to top it going into the knockout stages. Les Bleus are among the favourites for the World Cup, but have faced a lot of criticism for failing to show up and play their best football in the opening two games against Australia and Peru. Many people say Didier Deschamps is too cautious considering the talent he has at his disposal and there certainly is a suggestion that he has not found the right system to get the best from his team, based on their earlier performances. But they have six points, which is more than fellow favourites Spain, Germany, Brazil and Argentina, and have already booked their place in the next round, but they will be hoping to put in a performance to silence the critics on Tuesday. We think they will win but it could be tough.
Denmark will be kicking themselves for failing to get beat Australia having started so brightly and scored arguably the goal of the tournament through Christian Eriksen. A penalty given after consultation with VAR and scored by Mile Jedinak knocked the wind out of their sails and they failed to recover. Now they must beat France to confirm their progression to the last 16, or risk being usurped by Australia, who play already eliminated Peru. Yussuf Poulsen will Miss the game through having been booked for giving the penalty away in the last game, which is a huge blow for Denmark because he has been a huge positive for them in Russia so far.
Without Poulsen, the focal point for Denmark will be Nicolai Jorgensen, who set up Eriksen’s goal against Australia. He can be found at 13/5 to score anytime, while Eriksen himself is 10/3. Antoine Griezmann may be the favourite for France, but he still offers value at 19/10 and is worth backing.
