Australia vs Denmark Prediction
Australia 0-2 Denmark
Finishing as the top seed in this group will be crucial. The second-place team will most likely face Argentina in the round of 16.
Denmark will look to secure all three points from this contest and increase their goal differential to topple France for the top spot in Group D.
This will be a low-scoring, slow-paced match with Denmark coming away with the victory.
Australia vs Denmark Betting Tips
These two sides played to a 1-1 draw during the 2018 World Cup and it was the only point Australia won at the tournament. They lost their matches against France and Peru, finishing last in the group four years ago.
Denmark technically did not lose a match during the run of play in 2018 as they drew two matches during the group stage and beat Peru. In the round of 16, the Danes lost to Croatia in a penalty shootout after the score was level at 1-1 at the end of extra time.
Denmark has also been in excellent form in competitions, finishing second in their group in the Nations League and advancing to the semifinals of the 2020 Euros before losing to England. The return of Christian Eriksen to the team will give their midfield a huge boost as he has been excellent for Manchester United this season.
The Danish defense is their identity as they have a disciplined backline and make it very tough for opposing teams to find quality goal-scoring opportunities. They only conceded two total goals in 2018 and haven’t given up more than two goals in a match since March this year against the Netherlands.
Andreas Christensen has been battling an injury which has kept him out of the Barcelona lineup for the past month, but reportedly will be ready to lead the Danish defense.
