Denmark v France World Cup 2018, 26th June – 3.00 p.m
This will decide who finishes top of Group C and going into the game it is Denmark who has to produce a win if they want to top the group, while a draw for France would be good enough to see Les Bleus through. If Denmark were to lose, they would be under some pressure if Australia beat Peru in their final group stage game. So looking at betting tips for Denmark v France there is a bit of pressure riding on both of these.

Denmark v France Betting Tips
So after scraping out a 1-0 win over Peru and then a 1-1 draw with Australia, Denmark have played their way into qualification potential in Group C at the 2018 World Cup. A point in this one guarantees that they will move ahead and you imagine that they will be targeting that from the off. It is just hard to see any game involving Denmark being a high-scoring affair and under 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 4/9 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 22nd, 2018 at 11:38 p.m.). The Danes are in good form, at least from the perspective of not losing, as they are undefeated in their last 10 games. They have produced five draws in their last seven (W2).
Each of their last eight games have produced no more than two goals per game, and six of those have all finished under 1.5 goals. So again you are looking at a tight fixture here and Denmark are not a particularly potent side going forward. The Danes have scored just three goals in their last six games and in the bet365 correct score market the 1-1 draw is the shortest-priced option at 9/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 22nd, 2018 at 11:38 p.m.) and which actually looks value for our Denmark v France betting tips. A win is the only thing that gets Denmark top spot in this group, but will they really push on and risk losing? If they lose then Australia could overtake them if they beat Peru.
A lot was expected of France at this tournament but they haven’t clicked as of yet. They opened with a bit of a nervy 2-1 win over Australia there with goals coming from a penalty and an own goal. They took a first-half lead against Peru and just couldn’t add to that tally against the South Americans but managed to hang on for a 1-0 victory. There were moments when they were really hanging on as well. You are looking at things and there has to be better to come from them at some point. With a comfortable position that they have and with qualification already secured, there is no real reason to go out and bust a gut in this game. Besides given how defensively strong Denmark are, France just may genuinely struggle to have a huge impact upfront anyway.
So even with not playing well France have extended their current unbeaten streak to 6 games, winning five of those. There are still huge question marks about their defence which hasn’t looked very impressive whatsoever and they have just two clean sheets in their last eight games. With Denmark probably not going to be too expansive in this game their biggest threat is going to be from conceding set pieces against their fellow Europeans. At the end of the day is a game where is only to see them both settling for a draw and both teams not to score is 8/13 odds with bet365* (Betting Odds were taken from June 22nd, 2018 at 11:38 p.m.). This has the potential to be a great clash, but it may fail to ignite given the circumstances.
Denmark v France Head to Head
The most recent meeting between these two was is a 2015 friendly which France won 2-1. The French are on a three-match winning streak against the Danes, conceding just the one goal in that sequence. Interestingly of the last meeting that they had at the World Cup which was in 2002, Denmark collected a 2-0 win. In the overall head-to-head France are 8-5 ahead with the one drawn fixture.
Who will win – Denmark v France Predictions
We have yet to be particularly impressed by France so far at the 2018 World Cup and this will be their toughest challenge. The Danes are fairly well organised and they have those touches of quality that keep them in matches. Because of all that back a draw since both of these would settle on the draw in the match outright.
