Denmark v France Predictions & Betting Odds – World Cup 2018

Europeans to play out stalemate

Denmark v France- World Cup 2018

Denmark v France Betting Preview – World Cup 2018 26th June – 3.00 p.m

France were always expected to win this group and they are in line to do that. They will complete the task if they can avoid defeat in this fixture. They take on second-placed Denmark in their final group stage match and in order for the Danes to get through in top spot they would have to produce a win. A draw would see them move through to the round of 16 alongside France. Where Denmark v France predictions get interesting is that Denmark could be under pressure from Australia if they lose this game.

Denmark News and Form

The Danes have collected four points from their two games but they have been made to work very hard for their spoils. Following a 1-0 victory over Peru, they could only then manage a 1-1 draw with Australia. But they are a good position here and only needed a draw to confirm their place in the next round. Given how good they are defensively they are probably going to set their stall out to get that. Whichever way we look at this we cannot see it being a high-scoring game. Therefore for our Denmark v France predictions we are looking at under 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 4/9 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 22nd, 2018 at 11:38 p.m.). The Danes are very hard side to beat as they are unbeaten in their last 10 games, but they have picked up five draws in their last seven.

The penalty that Denmark conceded against Australia in their last game is the only goal they have conceded in their last seven games. None of their last eight fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals, and six of those actually finished under 1.5 goals. That’s how solid a side Denmark are and it all just points to this being a cagey low key affair. Denmark have produced three goals in their last six fixtures and for our Denmark v France prediction we are going with a 1-1 draw at 9/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 22nd, 2018 at 11:38 p.m.). If they want to get through to the next round in style by winning the group they are going to have to produce three points in this one. At the end of the day, they may be happy just to avoid defeat.

France News and Form

France had a lot of expectation on their shoulders going into this tournament, being one of the front-runners to win the event outright. They have looked unconvincing so far and not as if they have everything together to make a title run. They are in a strong position to win the group though having banked one goal margin victories over both Australia and Peru, but they have had to hang on at times in their fixtures. They have qualification already secured and so they could just take this easy and play to the draw to save themselves for the knockout stage. With that having been said Denmark are such good defensive side that France may well struggle to create anyway.

France are now undefeated in their last six games, picking up a victory in five of those. They still don’t look very convincing side at the back despite all the talent that they have there. The French have only taken two clean sheets in their last eight fixtures. They should have a decent chance of getting one in this one against Denmark side who are not the most prolific side, but the French will have to watch themselves at set pieces. We see this one playing out to a draw the longer the game goes on, as both are likely to settle for that. 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 could be a great fixture but the circumstance may take the edge off.

Denmark v France Head to Head

France collected a 2-1 victory against Denmark in their most recent meeting which was a 2015 friendly. France are on a three-match winning streak against Denmark. In that sequence they have conceded just the one goal against them. However, it was Denmark who won the last World Cup clash that they had which was at the 2002 edition. In the overall head-to-head France are 8-5 ahead with the one drawn fixture.

Denmark v France Predictions

A draw would suit both of these perfectly given the situation and we can’t ignore the value in backing that outcome in the match outright. Denmark are well-organised and France haven’t really looked like a world-beating side at all yet so we are sticking with the draw in this European duel.
