Christian Eriksen in action for Tottenham

Denmark vs Tunisia prediction, betting tips & odds

Kick-off: 1300, 22/11/2022

Stadium: Education City Stadium

TV: ITV

Potential Qatar 2022 dark horses Denmark begin their World Cup challenge against Tunisia and the Red and Whites are rated a cut above.

As Euro 2020 semi-finalists, they will be strongly tipped to get their campaign off to a winning start against a well-organised but limited opponent.

The Eagles of Carthage don’t leak many goals, but we’re backing them to go down 2-0 at 6.5 in our first Denmark vs Tunisia prediction.

Denmark Odds

Denmark’s emotional run to the European Championship semis came despite star midfielder Christian Eriksen suffering a cardiac arrest in their opening group game.

The Danes rallied to power their way into the last four, where they led England before ultimately bowing out in extra-time.

Eriksen is back fit and Kasper Hjulmand’s side booked a trip to Qatar in style, winning their first nine qualifying games and keeping eight clean sheets in 10 outings.

It is the Scandinavian country’s sixth time at the finals and they have only failed to progress from the group stage once.

They look well placed to make it to the last 16 again and will have high hopes they can at least match their best result at a World Cup from France 98, when a team containing Peter Schmeichel and the Laudrup brothers reached the quarter-finals.

Now, Schmeichel’s son Kasper, Eriksen, captain Simon Kjaer and forward Yussuf Poulsen will all expect to play key roles in another long run at this tournament.

Expect a fast start by the Danes, so 2.05 for them to win the first half looks enticing, while the favourites to win to nil is available at 2.15 from the Denmark vs Tunisia odds.

Tunisia Odds

Tunisia are back for a sixth crack at a World Cup finals but have never reached the knockout stages and have won just two games.

After winning their first finals match back in 1978 against Mexico, the African side went 13 outings without a victory before beating Panama in Russia four years ago.

Since then, Tunisia had a run to the semi-finals of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations – their best performance since they won it in 2004 – and conceded just two goals in eight games as they came through their qualifying campaign for Qatar.

Jalel Kadri’s side edged Mali 1-0 on aggregate in their play-off thanks to a first-leg own goal from Moussa Sissako.

Friendly wins over Chile and Japan have raised hopes this could be the year they reach the knockout stages, but those chances will likely rely on not losing to Denmark.

Tunisia have some inside knowledge, with midfielder Anis Ben Slimane and forward Issam Jebali having played in the Danish league, while Manchester United youngster Hannibal Mejbri could look to break out at the tournament.

A win for the Eagles of Carthage is a tall task, but they can make life difficult for their opponents, with a second-half draw worth support at 2.55 in our Denmark vs Tunisia betting tips.
