Denmark vs France Preview

Denmark vs France

Competition – FIFA World Cup

Stadium РLuzhniki Stadium

Date: 26th June 2018

Kick-off time – 15:00 GMT

These two teams were understandably favourites when the group stage draw was made and they both enter this game with one eye on the top spot.

Denmark come into this match with four points and they need at least a draw to make it to the next round.

They opened their campaign with a lucky 1-0 win over an unfortunate Peru, before playing a 1-1 draw against Australia despite going a goal up very early in the game.

If they fail to secure at least a point here, a win for Australia could see them head home, so the stakes are high.

France has one of the most exciting teams at this World.

If you take a look at the quality of players who have been left at home you would understand how much expectation the nation has on this group.

Les Bleus started their campaign with a 2-1 win over Australia thanks to an unfortunate 80th minute own goal by the Australians.

They went on to beat Peru 1-0 in their very next game which is not the most convincing of results, but this World Cup has proven that teams do not want to concede so even that result is one to cherish.

France have six points heading into this match and they only need to avoid defeat to end as group leaders.

A loss would see them fall behind Denmark and perhaps get a tough draw in the next round.
