Australia vs Denmark
World Cup Soccer: Thursday, June 21, 2018 at 8:00 am (Samara Arena)
The Line: Denmark -143 / Australia +370 / Draw +300 -- Over/Under: 2.5 See the Latest Odds
Denmark and Australia will face each other with the hope of making it to the second round of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Neither side has hopes of winning the competition but they will both expect to do well and get out of this group.
Australia challenged France in the opening round of games in the World Cup but the Socceroos were lacking creativity and the close result was more due to France playing badly rather than Australia playing well. This side lacks goal scoring threat and the players are not at the level Australia have been able to send to the past few competitions. That being said, Denmark is a team that Australia should be able to compete against.

Denmark are filled with talented players with Christian Eriksen being their main player. The Danish superstar has been amazing for Tottenham all season and he showed against Peru that he can do it for his country also. Denmark will know that if they win this game, they will be through to the round of 16 of the competition. They will also know that a loss will mean that they have to get points against France so I am expecting a determined performance from the Danish players.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to predict that Denmark wins this game. Look at the odds, we are getting a good enough price to wager on the Danes to win and as a result, the outright market is the best option. I am also a fan of both teams not to score bet. I don’t see Australia having enough quality to score a goal against Denmark.
