Denmark vs Australia Prediction & Betting tips
The Scandinavian defensive bastions of Denmark and Sweden were already praised in the run-up to the World Cup and they justified their laurels on the first World Cup match day. Both Sweden against South Korea and Denmark against Peru held the back zero, which was the basis for the respective 1-0 victory. For both nations, the chances are good to move into the round of the last sixteen of the World Cup in Russia. The Danes can clear everything on Thursday. A victory for Denmark against Australia would be necessary, but can Denmark really win? Bets should not necessarily be placed on top of a favorite’s win, as the results on Matchday 1 slightly distort the teams’ performance. Australia were in good form in the narrow 1-2 defeat by France and will be a match for the Danes. The start of this possibly pre-decisive match in Group C is at 13:00 pm.
Denmark is slightly overestimated in betting odds not only against Australia but also overall. Of course, the Northern Europeans have played a solid qualifier and also the test matches in the preparation were in order. Above all, the stable defense (five games in series without conceding) is hard for any opponent to crack. In the attack, the hopes rest on Christian Eriksen. To be honest, however, one has to admit that the opening victory against Peru was more than happy.
Not only did the South Americans give away the chance of a penalty in the opening half, but as the game went on, Peru was usually the superior team, failing either by its own final weakness or by the outstanding Danish keeper Kasper Schmeichel. That bookmakers now judge the team of Age Hareide so strong and choose for a victory of Denmark against Australia odds below the 2.00 mark, we consider excessive. The value is thus on the side of the underdog.
Australia was considered to be the big outsider in Group C before the finals. It did not change fundamentally after the 2-1 defeat by France, but the Oceania squad has the respect for one of the championship favorites Developed. The Socceroos were defensive against the Equipe Tricolore over a long distance and especially the tempo of an Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe or Ousmane Dembele did not come into their own.
Even then, Australia kept coming back for pinpricks and Mile Jedinak scored from 11 yards. If this performance against Denmark and Peru can be compensated, then Australia will not leave the World Cup without a point win and on Thursday is definitely at least a point gain in it.
