World Cup Match Preview: France vs Denmark

Defending Champions France are all set to take on Denmark in their second World Cup group game looking to all but qualify for the knockout stage. The French national team, led by Didier Deschamps, overcame a deficit against Australia on Tuesday night to begin their championship defense with a resounding victory. Denmark was held to the first 0-0 draw of the World Cup for the second time in a row. France was on the losing end of the impasse in 2018, while Tunisia shared the rewards earlier in the week.

France team news

Craig Goodwin’s excellent opening goal was the result of the same move that cost France Lucas Hernandez due to a knee injury. The Bayern Munich defender was ruled out of the competition after an MRI revealed that he had torn his ACL. France only has 24 players available in the team due to Karim Benzema’s withdrawal and Deschamps’ refusal to identify a replacement.

Denmark team news

In Tunisia’s group opener, Thomas Delaney was a victim of their aggressive style, leaving with a knee injury just before halftime. It is unknown if the crucial midfielder will recuperate in time for the important match against France.

France vs Denmark World Cup score prediction

Denmark ought to be overwhelming favorites over a team they vanquished in Copenhagen and Paris based only on the results of this year’s Nations League. However, focusing only on their two most recent meetings would be misleadingly partial. “When we meet France at the World Cup, it will be a different contest,” Kasper Schmeichel remarked.

In the group game, the defending champions are the clear favorites, especially if they can match their sparkling swagger from the second half against Australia. Kasper Hjulmand, the manager of Denmark, is juggling more important choices than his preferred defensive alignment. Hjulmand acknowledged: “I’m talking for myself as a human being when I say I find the situation tough at this time” in the aftermath of the numerous scandals surrounding the tournament.
