Socceroos to battle to a draw

Denmark v Australia- World Cup 2018

Denmark v Australia Betting Preview – World Cup 2018 21st June – 1.00 p.m
(Full time: 1:1 – goals: Eriksen 7′- Jedinak (P) 38′)

Denmark had a tougher game against Peru in their opener than they ever thought that they were going to get. But they got across the finish line in the end with three points, with the South Americans missing a penalty along the way. The Danes are going to be in for another tough scrap here as they face up to the Socceroos. Our Denmark v Australia predictions are suggesting this is going to be a tight game after Australia so nearly produced what would have been a deserved an excellent point against France.

Denmark News and Form

Denmark delivered exactly what was expected of them in their opening match which was a 1-0 win over Peru. They look a pretty solid side and they got their three points but what was likely to let them down at this tournament was the lack of scoring output. The goal that they got against Peru was just their fourth in their last six games now and so a good place to start for your Denmark v Australia predictions is under 2.5 goals at 8/15 odds at bet365* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:39 p.m.). You don’t really see the Danes breaking out and producing a top quality attacking performance and run up a big score. In the bet365 correct score market a Denmark 5/1 option is at 5/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:39 p.m.) and that looks a good value option on this game.

Their star player Christian Eriksen is a 21/10 anytime goalscorer option* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:39 p.m.). Denmark have been rock solid at the back and that is now a clean sheet in each of their last five games. That’s impressive stuff although they did ride their luck against Peru with Keeper Kasper Schmeichel producing some key saves while Peru missed a spot kick as well. But the Danes kept their good defensive record intact and Denmark to win to nil is at 7/4 odds or you can snap a price up of 10/11 on them to get just get a clean sheet in the game* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:39 p.m.). They have that cushion of three points and they could be happy enough with a point in this one and they don’t have to open up and get all crazy. If they could make it six points from six though, that would see them lay down a serious challenge to win the group when they meet France in the final round of group stage matches.

Australia News and Form

Australia can feel themselves really hard done by in not having collected a point against France. They looked well on course to get one until a VAR decision did correctly call that a speculative shot from Paul Pogba had crossed the line at the end. But the Socceroos competed very well in the match and that was a game which they were expected to be brushed aside in. So while the result will have hurt they can take huge positives from it but one thing which is going to end up working against them is that the game against France will have taken a lot out of them. They won’t have the fitness levels or depth in their squad like Denmark have. Australia have won two of their last three games, beating the Czech Republic and Hungary in their final warm-up matches, and have to collect three points in this one if they are going to keep any faint hopes of qualification alive until the final round of group stage matches. For our Denmark v Australia betting tips we can see them coming up short, but there is some appeal in backing Australia to keep things tight and a Denmark to win by a one-goal margin at bet365 is at 12/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:39 p.m.).

The two nations have met three times before and Denmark are 2-1 up from that brief head to head. They haven’t met competitively though so this will be a first. Their most recent meeting was in a 2010 friendly which Denmark won 2-0.

Denmark v Australia Predictions

Australia may have enough about them to go and dig out a draw in this one to keep their qualification hopes for the next round alive. They were so unlucky not to earn one against France they should be fired up for this. With Denmark not a massive threat in front of goal, our prediction for Denmark v Australia is the draw in the match outright.
