  • Venue: Stadium 974, Qatar

Nations League rivals, France and Denmark, clash at Stadium 974 as the World Cup moves to its second matchday on Saturday. The Danes came up better after the two nations repeatedly clashed in the UEFA Nations League earlier this year, which France could rectify on the weekend. The reigning World Champions beat Australia 4-1 to grab all three points on the first matchday, and they remain top of the group after Denmark ended their first game in a stalemate with Tunisia. It will be France's overwhelming offence taking on one of the most resilient defences in Europe led by Kasper Schmeichel in goal. With Australia being the favourites against Tunisia in the other group game, Denmark could be exiting the World Cup if they lose all three points.

France vs Denmark Betting Tips: Under 2.5 goals

Denmark carries their Nations League form into the World Cup, where they managed to go unbeaten against France in both the games played, home and away. In fact, that takes the Danish side to three games without a defeat against the World Champions. Talking about the number of goals possible in this game, both sides have seen under 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 games, especially Denmark who pride themselves in their defensive achievements. We thus expect this game to be a very close shave between the two sides with France having the last laugh in a narrow 1-0 or 2-0 win. Irrespective, the game should end in under 2.5 goals whatsoever.

Lucas Hernandez will likely miss this game against Denmark with a knock he picked up against Australia. But that only presents an opportunity for his own brother, Theo Hernandez, to make his first start in the World Cup this year. Ballon d'Or winner Karim Benzema's absence due to injury means that Olivier Giroud is still France's main man upfront. Giroud has not only filled up Benzema's shoes but exceeded all levels as his brace against Australia takes him to 51 goals for France - the most number of goals by any Frenchman, surpassing Thierry Henry on the list. One player who has really impressed for club and country is Adrien Rabiot. The midfielder won five of his nine duels against Australia and had a 90% passing success rate on the night.

Players to watch: Adrien Rabiot, Olivier Giroud, Theo Hernandez

Denmark Team News

Denmark may have a fairly young squad, but they have a huge gap between the quality of the first eleven and their substitutes/reserves. This means that any injury could have a huge impact on their gameplay. Such an injury has taken place as Thomas Delaney has injured himself against Tunisia and will be doubtful against France. Mikkel Damsgaard will be filling his role in case he misses the game, but will be a decent downgrade over the Borussia Dortmund midfielder. Talking about the players to watch in Denmark, Christian Eriksen is a perennial contender. The Dane has been impressing at Manchester United since his arrival at Old Trafford earlier this season, and he can easily break the French backline with a single pass. Joachim Anderson will be under huge pressure as the right-sided centre-back will be tasked with marking Kylian Mbappe. Anderson's impressive performance against Tunisia makes him a good shout though, even if against Mbappe.

Players to watch: Christian Eriksen, Joachim Anderson, Mikkel Damsgaard
