Australia vs. Denmark Betting Preview

Australia

Australia are participating in their fifth successive World Cup. They reached the Round of 16 in Germany in 2006 but have been knocked out in the group stage in each of the following three.

If they get the win in their final group game on their World Cup schedule, the Aussies will be in the last 16 once again.

The Socceroos made a blistering start against France in their opening game of the 2022 World Cup, taking the lead against the world champions after just nine minutes.

France’s Form

However, the French showed their class after that, with:

  • Olivier Giroud (2)
  • Adrien Rabiot
  • Kylian Mbappe

Netting in a 4-1 France win. Australia dusted themselves and picked up a vital three points in their next game.

It was always going to be a tight and tense fixture against Tunisia, and the Group D matchup in Al Wakrah turned out that way.

Duke’s Goal

Mitchell Duke’s goal in the 23rd minute was enough to give the Aussies a narrow 1-0 win.

Australia’s task is simple; if Graham Arnold’s men beat Denmark, they will guarantee their position in the last 16 of the 2022 World Cup.

They have a poor record against European sides at the World Cup, losing eight of 11 and failing to keep a clean sheet. However, they drew with the Danes in the group stage of the 2018 tournament in Russia.

Can Australia defy the odds and secure a place in the next round? Our Australia vs Denmark score prediction and pick is below.

Denmark

Denmark were tipped by many to go far in Qatar, but Kasper Hjulmand’s men have left themselves with plenty of work to do in their final group game.

If France stop Tunisia from winning, victory for the Danes will see them through to the last 16.

Denmark’s Poor Form

Denmark have been poor up until now. They were odds-on to beat the Tunisians at Education City Stadium in game one, but they were held to a disappointing 0-0 draw in Al Rayyan.

To their credit, Denmark performed much better in their second group game of the competition, almost snatching a point away from France.

However, Kylian Mbappe was the hero, scoring both goals in a 2-1 win for the world champions in the Qatari capital.

Facing a Huge Game

Denmark head into this huge game having failed to win any of their last five World Cup matches, including the two games in Qatar.

Their last World Cup victory was against Peru on matchday one in Russia four years back.

The Danes have a good record of reaching the knockout stages of the World Cup, doing so in 1986, 1998, 2002, and 2018.

In fact, only once have they been eliminated in the group stage (2010). Hjulmand and his Danish boys will be desperate for all three points from this one.

Australia vs. Denmark Pick and Prediction

Australia are looking to book their place in the knockout stages of a World Cup for only a second time in six finals. However, they have struggled for wins on the grandest stage, picking up just three victories from 18 World Cup matches.

With Tunisia facing France, a point is likely to be enough for the Socceroos. They drew 1-1 with Denmark at the last World Cup.

France were also in the group in Russia, with Les Bleus taking first place, and Denmark following them into the last 16 as runners-up.

Who to Bet On?

Australia will no doubt be tough opponents for the Danes, but we can see Denmark edging a tight game at Al Janoub Stadium.

Our Australia vs Denmark score prediction is a 2-1 Danish win at +850. Also, take a punt on Denmark to win and both teams to score at +260.

Final Score Prediction: Australia 1-2 Denmark (+850)

Pick: Denmark to Win and Both Teams to Score (+260)
