The Danes have not met their high expectations so far in the World Cup. After reaching the semifinals of EURO 2020, Kasper Hjulmand’s side has only earned a point after 180 minutes of play.

Denmark (0-1-1) opened their journey with a 0-0 draw with Tunisia and followed it up with a 2-1 loss to France in Matchday two. Kylian Mbappe broke the team’s hearts when he scored the winner at the 86-minute mark. 

Australia (1-1-0) fell 4-1 to France in its first game but bounced back with a 1-0 win over Tunisia. The Socceroos were heavy underdogs and if they can grab a positive result against Denmark, they’ll reach the Round of 16 for the second time in history (2006).

Players to watch in the Australia vs. Denmark matchup

Australia

Mitchell Duke: The 31-year-old striker will try to score in back-to-back games for Australia. Despite only having 23 appearances for the Socceroos, Duke has found the back of the net nine times. His scoring record is much more impressive for his country than his club, Fagiano Okayama (10 goals in 44 games).

Denmark

Christian Eriksen: If there was ever a time Denmark needed their captain to step up — it’s now. Since Eriksen began representing his nation 12 years ago, he has produced many clutch moments. The 30-year-old has scored 39 goals in 119 caps for his country and has produced 147 assists and 107 goals at the club level in 533 matches.

ESTNN’s soccer analysts will provide two Australia vs. Denmark betting tips in the following section. 

Australia vs. Denmark prediction: Denmark to win @ -195 (DraftKings)

Prior to losing to France, the Danes had beaten won five of their previous eight games. Two of the wins were over Les Bleus.

Denmark was outshot (21-10) by France but did hold more possession (52%-48%) and completed more passes (528-491). It’ll be a much easier matchup against Australia (FIFA’s 38th-ranked team). 

Hjulmand’s team must win in order to advance to the knockout stages and will come out desperate for a win. During qualifying, the Danes tallied 27 total points in their group, which was tied for first among all ten groups with Germany. 

In ten matches, the Northern European country went 9-1. Its goal differential was 27, scoring 30 goals and conceding just three.

On the other side of the world, the Aussies were mediocre in qualification finishing behind Saudi Arabia and Japan. The Oceanic continent scored only 15 goals and allowed nine. Graham Arnold’s squad almost missed their flight to Qatar after barely inching past the United Arab Emirates (2-1) and Peru via a penalty shootout (0-0, 5-4).

Due to the difference in quality between the two sides, as well as Denmark’s desperation, our pick at ESTNN is to take Denmark to win straight-up. DraftKings is offering -195 odds for the bet on its sportsbook.

Australia vs. Denmark odds: Both teams to score (no) @ -130 (Caesars)

In four of Denmark’s last six contests, one of the teams has failed to score. In Australia’s past five matches,  at least one of the countries has also failed to get off the mark on four occasions.

During qualifiers, the Socceroos were unable to find the net against Saudi Arabia, (twice) Japan and Peru. FIFA’s 10th-ranked team, Denmark, has kept 13 clean sheets in its last 26 games in all competitions since the start of World Cup qualification on March 15, 2021.

The Danes have a quality defence that features captain Simon Kjaer (A.C. Milan) and Andreas Christensen (Barcelona). Kasper Schmeichel (Nice) is also considered one of the most experienced goalkeepers in the world.

In 19 of the 32 World Cup matches, at least one team has failed to score. At ESTNN, we believe it’s wise to bet either Australia or Denmark will fail to score at -130 odds at Caesars Sportsbook.

Group D preview and other World Cup matches

Tunisia will face France needing a win to have a chance at qualifying for the next round. This is a tough task for a team that has failed to score a single goal in its first two matches.  Australia can actually win Group D if it beats Denmark by enough goals and France loses (highly unlikely) while not scoring much.
