Denmark vs Australia betting preview

Ahead of the tournament, Denmark will have targeted this as a game they should take all three points from, particularly with the knowledge that they are to face France on the final day of the group stages. Denmark enjoyed a successful European qualifying campaign after going unbeaten in each of their last nine games, including a 5-1 win over Ireland in their play-off.

Of course, Christian Eriksen will be their key man in this clash, being far the most reputable player in their squad and rightly so after an excellent season with Tottenham that has seen him progress to a new level. His battle for space and freedom in midfield will be one of the key aspects in this game and, should he get on the ball, could well swing the game in his side’s favour.

As for Australia, this game comes directly after this opening group game against France and, as such, we can only presume this will be a game they need a positive result from if they hope to give themselves a chance of progressing to the last 16. Realistically, Australia will know they are competing with Denmark and Peru for second place in the group, making this an imperative fixture for the Socceroos.

Bert van Marwijk’s side may lack the quality and firepower that some of the other sides in the group have, but have a great togetherness and experience of playing in a settled side at international level. They also have great resiliency, having lost just one of their games throughout qualifying.

Denmark vs Australia predictions

Australia have the greater experience at this level of international football, but Denmark have the greater quality. Those two qualities could cancel each other out here and the draw is priced at 13/5 with William Hill.

Given the importance of this game, it would not be surprising to see a cagey affair between the two sides. Under 2.5 match goals is priced at 17/10 with Betfair.
