Denmark vs Australia Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
First game in group C that is about to be played is France vs. Australia. This game is also good candidate to put our bets and earn some cash. These two teams played three times in last eleven years and Denmark collected two wins and one defeat. Last time they played six years ago and Denmark defeated Australia 2:0.
First round has passed and Denmark is in second place with three points. Their opponent was Peru and they were undefeated in seven matches before the start of World Cup. Peruvians countered Danish 4-3-3 with rock solid 4-2-3-1 and in first half we had an impression that Peru was slightly better. Luck was on Danish side when Peru missed the best possible chance to score when referee awarded penalty. As it usually happens one must be punished for such miss. In fifty-ninth minute, RB Leipzig’s striker Yussuf Poulsen scored what turned out to be winning goal 0:1. In last five games that Danes played, there were under 2.5 goals and we are certain that Denmark will pay special attention on defensive tasks because by some statistics they may need only one point in next two games to reach second phase. We expect to see firm defense and quick counter attacks by Danes, basically exactly what we’ve already seen against Peru.
A lot of people see Australia as wannabe football nation and as someone who should stick to rugby. Truth is little bit different. Since the beginning of new millennium Australia improved significantly. Before the match with France, Socceroos as they’ve been popularly called lost only two of their last ten matches. Australia opted for stable 4-2-3-1 system. After goalless first half of the match, ref decided that the time for goals has come. In fifty-eighth minute France earns penalty and result is 1:0. Only four minutes later Australia is given chance to equalize after penalty and they did 1:1. The scorer was Mile Jedinak. Australian player, Aziz Behich scores tremendous goal in eighty-first minute but unfortunately he scored own goal 2:1. After initial defeat, Australia must win both remaining games to secure place in knockout phase. First one is against Denmark and it will be tough because Danes kept their sheet clean in last five games.
