The Australia vs Denmark game in the FIFA Women’s World Cup is the topic of discussion in this article.
Matildas and Denmark Lock Horns on the 7th of August
The home side will be looking to get a good result over the European guests this Monday. The match is scheduled to be played at Stadium Australia, and we hope to see a packed venue for this can’t-miss FIFA Women’s World Cup brawl.
*Starting lineups are usually announced 1hr before the kick-off
Australia vs Denmark Expectations
- A key expectation we can safely have is for a maximum of two goals on the 7th of August when Matildas and Denmark collide.
- One side will earn a clean sheet, that is a given. All three of Denmark’s group-stage matches ended without goals galore.
- Despite defeating the Canucks 4-0, Matildas lost the possession and were overall the weaker side, which means the visitors from Europe will have a good chance to reach the penalty roulette.

Matildas have an impressive 53.0% win probability, but the home side shouldn’t be quick to underestimate Denmark.
Australia vs Denmark Lineups & Team News
Despite getting an impressive 4-0 victory over Canada last week, Australia didn’t impress. Cooney-Cross and her teammates barely scooped together a 39.0% possession. It’s a miracle that the team scored four times out of six shots on target. Australia have been quite inconsistent with their performances during this World Cup, so we believe Denmark has a fighting chance on Monday.
Predicted lineup – Arnold (GK), Catley, Kennedy, Hunt, Carpenter, Raso, Gorry, Cooney-Cross, Foord, van Egmond & Fowler
The Danish team looks ready to put a wrench in anyone’s plans, it seems. Denmark lost 1-0 to England, that’s true, but England are among the top candidates to win the World Cup this year. There’s nothing shameful in losing with a narrow 1-0 score. Denmark have a watertight defense consisting of a Sorensen – Sevecke combo that is a nightmare to get past. We’re sure that if Denmark manage to pipe Matildas on Monday, they’ll have the opportunity to get a lot further.
Predicted lineup – Christensen (GK), Veje, S. Sorensen, Sevecke, Thomsen, Holmgaard, Kuhl, Harder, Madsen, N. Sorensen & Vangsgaard
Player to Watch: Hayley Raso
If Denmark are to qualify for the next round of World Cup football, handling Hayley Raso should be a key priority in front of S. Sorensen and her colleagues at the back. Hayley had one hell of a game versus Canada last week. Matildas won 4-0, but it was a lovely Hayley Raso brace that stole the show at Melbourne Rectangular Stadium.
Hayley Raso got subbed off in the second half of the game, but we’re sure she’ll be among the starters on the 7th of August again.
