France vs Denmark Prediction, Odds & Betting Tips 26/11/2022

*All odds are correct at the time of writing but are also subject to change, so double-check them. 

After four years, Denmark and France will again play each other at World Cup. This time the two teams will meet on Saturday, November 26th, in the second round of Group D. With that in mind, we have prepared a preview of the game for you, along with some free betting tips.

France vs Denmark World Cup 2022 Prediction

France got off to the winning start most expected against Australia, while Denmark could only manage a draw against an impressive Tunisia side. The Danes have a decent recent record against France and will be desperate to avoid defeat after failing to take all 3pts from their opening game.

 

Draw 

Denmark are unbeaten in their last three games against France, picking up two wins and a draw, so you can see why we've backed the Scandinavians to pick up a point from this game, despite their weak performance in first round.

France ran riot against Australia but Denmark are a much better side and will test that French defence more whilst making it harder for the likes of Giroud and Mbappe to score. France would probably be happy with a draw in this game, while a point is the absolute minimum the Danish will accept.

Under 2.5 Goals

Five of the last seven head-to-heads between these two clubs have produced under 2.5 goals, and we're fully expecting another tight, tense and low-scoring affair on matchday 2.

Five of France's and four of Denmark's last six outings in all competitions have also witnessed fewer than three goals scored, adding further weight to our prediction for under 2.5 goals to be scored in this game.

While France dominated Australia in their opener at Qatar World Cup, Denmark had a timid and rather unimpressive performance against Morocco in a scoreless draw. Still, these are two good teams and Denmark didn't lose to France in their last three meetings. So, let's see what the average odds for this match are:

  • France odds: 17/20 (1.85)
  • Draw odds: 29/11 (3.64)
  • Denmark odds: 4/1 (5.00)

As we expected, France is the favourite in this match with a win probability of 54.1%. On the other hand, Denmark has a win probability of just 20%, even though they did emerge victorious against France in their last two meetings. Lastly, the average odds on a draw imply a probability of 27.5% for this betting market.

Meanwhile, the average odd on goals markets suggest that the bookies don't expect to see many goals with the odds on under 2.5 total goals being 5/7 (1.71), which is a probability of 58.3%. Contrary to that, the average odds on over 2.5 total goals are 13/10 (2.30), which implies a 43.5% probability.

For those who are interested in higher odds, correct score is the right betting market and the most likely correct scores for this game, according to average odds, are 1-0 and 2-0 to France, but also a 1-1 draw.

Previous Meetings

These two teams are very familiar with each other since they met three times in the last four years. One of those games was also at a World Cup, in Russia in 2018 and game ended without any goals being scored. After that, the two teams were also in the same group in UEFA Nations league, where Denmark managed to beat France in both of their duels.

Who Will Prevail Between the Top Dogs of Group D? 

France 

France might have slipped behind against Australia but they dominated the rest of the of the game and easily secured all 3pts in the end. That 4-1 win produced 2-goals for Giroud who moved ahead of Henry in the goalscoring charts for his county, an amazing feat for a striker that isn't considered to be one of France's best forwards. Denmark will provide a tougher test for Deschamps' men and the French have to avoid overconfidence in this game as the Danes are well-equipped to hurt them.

France Predicted Lineup:

Lloris – Kounde, Varane, Upamecano, T. Hernandez – Tchouameni, Rabiot – Dembele, Griezmann, Mbappe – Giroud

Denmark 

Denmark and Tunisia put on quite the show despite the game ending goalless on matchday 1. Both teams had chances to score and clearly went out there searching for a win, but a point was the fair result on the balance of play. However, the Danes were expected to win that game and if they were to lose against France they would be in danger of being knocked out of the World Cup much-earlier than expected.

Denmark Predicted Lineup:

Schmeichel – Andersen, Christensen, Kjaer – Kristensen, Hojbjerg, Eriksen, Maehle – Skov Olsen, Dolberg, Damsgaard
