Denmark v Australia Betting Tips, Odds & Preview
Socceroos Can Keep Qualification Hopes Alive
21 June 2018, 10pm AEST
After a daunting first game against France, Australia will feel more confident about getting a positive result when they face Denmark in Samara. Denmark had to come through a playoff against the Republic of Ireland to book their place in the World Cup. The Danes were excellent across both legs of that playoff though so Bert van Marwijk must ensure his Australia players show all their defensive solidity. If they do, the Socceroos can frustrate Denmark and should manage a goal so a 1-1 draw is very possible.
Head to Head
The Socceroos first meeting against Denmark came in 2007. The Danes won that game 3-1 but Australia got revenge three years later thanks to a Josh Kennedy goal that nsecured a 1-0 win. Denmark won the most recent meeting 2-0 in 2012 but it’s worth noting that all those games were friendlies so it remains to be seen how they fare under the pressure of the World Cup.

Australia Projected Team
Ryan; Sainsbury, Milligan, Wright, Behich; Jedinak, Luongo; Mooy, Leckie, Rogic; Juric
Denmark Projected Team
Schmeichel; Kjær, Bjelland, Christensen Larsen; Delaney, Schone; Eriksen, Sisto, Poulsen; Jorgensen
Players to Watch
The underdoutbed star of this Denmark side is Christian Eriksen. The attacking midfielder arrived at Tottenham with great promise and has really flourished in recent seasons. His hat-trick against Ireland showed just how dangerous Eriksen can be so the likely Australia midfield partnership of Mile Jedinak and Massimo Luongo have their work cut out keeping him quiet.
