Denmark vs Australia Preview

Denmark vs Australia

Competition – FIFA World Cup

Stadium РSamara Arena

Date: 21st June 2018

Kick-off time – 13:00 GMT

Denmark opened their World Cup campaign with a win over Peru last week, but in truth the result did not reflect the performance of the teams.

The Danes were made to suffer for much of the game and they looked less assured than they were in the qualification playoffs against Ireland.

They were able to win that game despite their opponents having 17 shots on goal and they will need to up their game if they want to win against this Australian team that gave France a run for their money.

Australia kickstarted their World Cup with a more difficult opponent and favourites to top the group, France.

Unlike the Danes, Australia performed well beyond expectations and were unlucky not to come out with a share of the points.

Many predicted that the star-studded French team would walk all over them, but the Australians dug deep and were organized in defence and being able to hold off the French team in the first half alone must be seen as a great achievement.

The Danes have won four in ten heading into this match, while the Australians have lost just two of their last ten.

These teams know each other well having played 3 times before now – the Danes have won twice and lost once.

Bookmakers make Denmark favourites to come out on top in this game.
