France, many pundits’ pick to lift the trophy, are set to face their toughest test in FIFA World Cup 2022 Group D when they take on Denmark on 26th November.

The Danes reached the semi-finals of Euro 2020 just a couple of years after they progressed to the Round of 16 at World Cup 2018, where they lost on penalties to eventual finalists Croatia.

There have, of course, been a number of France vs Denmark meetings in recent years. They drew 0-0 at the World Cup in Russia, and as recently as June, it was the Danes who triumphed 2-1 in a UEFA Nations League clash.

But how will this Qatar World Cup 2022 encounter play out? You can check out the latest betting tips and odds at LV BET, the home of football wagering.

Reigning World Champs Hoping for More of the Same in Qatar

Such is the quality of French football that you could put together a high-quality team made up of players who aren’t selected for their final World Cup squad.

In a way, that puts more pressure on head coach Didier Deschamps to get things right, but for the most part, he and his team have delivered the goods. France won the World Cup in 2018 and the Nations League in 2020/21.

Pessimists, however, will point out their mediocre effort at Euro 2020, where they were dumped out in the last 16, and their woes in the latest edition of the Nations League. They have gone four games without victory.

At least they achieved 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification with relative ease, remaining unbeaten throughout that eight-game campaign – thanks largely to the goals of their elite-level front three:

Name Position Matches Goals
Antoine Griezmann Forward 8 6
Kylian Mbappe Forward 6 5
Karim Benzema Striker 5 3

The return of Benzema from a lengthy international hiatus only serves to make France stronger, and for all their below-par results since last summer, they remain one of the most likely contenders to lift the Jules Rimet trophy at the end of this year.

Great Danes to Bare Their Teeth in FIFA World Cup 2022 Group D?

Head coach Kasper Hjulmand really has pushed this Denmark team to new heights in recent years.

They were excellent at Euro 2020, which was a tournament played out against the backdrop of their midfield talisman, Christian Eriksen, suffering a horrific cardiac arrest on the pitch against Finland. Thankfully he’s fine and back playing again, and the Danes rallied to thrash Russia, and beat Wales and the Czech Republic before going down to a controversial penalty against England in the semi-finals.

The Danes have also won three of their four games in the current edition of the Nations League, and so they have taken giant strides under Hjulmand.

They breezed through their FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers too, winning nine of ten games played and beating highly-ranked teams like Austria home and away. The impressive Andreas Skov Olsen led the way:

Name Position Matches Goals
Andreas Skov Olsen Forward 10 5
Joakim Maehle Defender 9 5
Mikkel Damsgaard Forward 6 2

If Denmark takes their recent form to Qatar 2022, they will surely finish inside the top two places in FIFA World Cup 2022 Group D and then, who knows?

Betting Tips and Odds on France vs Denmark in FIFA World Cup 2022 Group D

This France vs Denmark clash is one of the finest picks of the Qatar 2022 dates in the early going of the tournament.

The French are the favourites to win according to LV BET, but the Danes have an excellent record against them in recent meetings and should arrive in Qatar high on confidence.

It seems almost a certainty that these two teams will finish first and second in Group D ahead of the outclassed Tunisia and Australia, and so maybe both will be circumspect here: victory over the group’s two weaker teams will book a spot in the Round of 16. As such, maybe we can expect a low-scoring encounter that may end in a draw.
