Stadium: Luzhniki Stadium
France and Denmark would both be content with a draw when they meet in the final round of World Cup group matches in Moscow.
A point will see Les Bleus progress as pool C winners, while the Danes will also advance in second if earning a share of the spoils at Luzhniki Stadium.
Bookmakers have taken note of that scenario and shortened the odds of a stalemate, but 3/2 for such an outcome is still our first Denmark vs France prediction.
A Look At Denmark’s Betting Odds
Denmark followed up a 1-0 triumph over Peru by drawing 1-1 with Australia to give themselves every chance of reaching the knockout rounds.
Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen has been the key man, setting up Yussuf Poulsen to score versus Los Incas and then firing in a stunner himself against the Socceroos.
Age Hareide felt his players tired in the second half of Thursday’s clash with Australia, so he may look to keep things tight this time.
He said: “We lost the ball too often, faced too many counter-attacks and had to do too much running.
“We used up a lot of strength. But that’s the World Cup – it’s very tough and that’s just the way it is.”
A Look At France’s Betting Odds
France showed glimpses of their true potential in beating Australia 2-1 and Peru 1-0, but have tended to sit back and adopt a safety-first approach once in front.
Kylian Mbappe bagged the crucial goal against Los Incas in a dominant period between the 30-minute mark and half-time.
However, Les Bleus then had to soak up plenty of pressure after the break, although Hugo Lloris was rarely troubled, except for a long-range strike that hit the post.
Didier Deschamps still declared: “We are in the knockout stages, so we are very satisfied.
“We played a better game in the first half – it was more fluid and flowing. However, we were solid after the break, which helped us get this result.
“The defending doesn’t just come from the defence – the attacking players helped the team be more compact.”
Neutral observers can’t wait for Deschamps to take the shackles off his talented team, but this looks a good opportunity to ease through and conserve some energy.
We’re adding 23/10 for the scores to be level at half-time and full-time to our Denmark vs France betting tips.
