The first evening match on November 26th will kick-off at 7pm local time, with France taking on UEFA rivals Denmark in what’s sure to be a keenly-contested Group D clash.

The game will take place at Ras Abu Aboud, while Denmark will start the game arguably in need of a win after they were held to a surprise goalless draw by a tenacious Tunisia side in their opening match.

As for France, they’ll start as favourites here, with Les Bleus having overpowered Australia 4-1 last time out and started their defence of the Jules Rimet Trophy with a win.

🏠 France World Cup Preview

France is currently ranked fourth by FIFA, with the most recent listings also earmarking them as the second-best side in Europe (behind Belgium).

Of course, the French are also the defending world champions, having lifted their second Jules Rimet trophy in Russia following a chaotic 4-2 final win over Croatia.

However, the recent form of Les Bleus prior to the 2022 World Cup will remain of huge concern to coach Didier Deschamps, with France going winless in their four UEFA Nations League matches in June. This run included two home defeats, the first of which came against Denmark (2-1) at the Stade de France. Interestingly, the Danes also condemned the French to a 2-0 in Copenhagen in September, as Les Bleus only narrowly avoided relegated to Nations League B.

However, France looked much more like themselves in their WC opener, with Kylian Mbappe and now joint-record scorer Oliver Giroud excelling and filling the void left by the injured Karim Benzema in attack.

🏆 France World Cup History

France have appeared in 16 of the 22 World Cup finals (including Qatar), winning an impressive 34 of their 66 finals’ matches and scoring 120 goals in the process.

However, their best performance prior to hosting the tournament in 1998 was two third-place finishes in 1958 and 1986, while the side also finished fourth in the 1982 iteration in Spain.

However, France ‘98 saw a Zinedine Zidane-inspired side claim Les Bleus’ first ever World Cup crown, as the side thumped Brazil 3-0 in a one-sided final. A less creative and more industrious French side also finished runners-up in 2006, with these two tournaments sandwiching a disappointing 2002 outing when France were eliminated at the group stage.

France also prevailed in Russia in 2018, claiming their second Jules Rimet trophy and highlighting the immense depth and quality that exists in their current squad (despite its numerous injuries).

✔️ France Qualification and Road to the World Cup 2022

While France were relatively uninspiring during World Cup qualifying, they still managed to top UEFA Group D by six points ahead of Finland.

To this end, they won five and drew three of their eight qualification matches, while winning three of the four games that they contested on the road.

Standout performances included a measured 2-0 win in Finland, while Les Bleus also thumped Kazakhstan 8-0 at the Parc des Princes in Paris.

⭐ France Players to Watch

France boasts one of the most star-studded squads at the Qatar World Cup, even with players like Benzema, Paul Pogba and the indefatigable N’Golo Kante absent through injury.

But which of these stars should you keep your eyes on during the tournament? Here’s the picks from the Betinireland team:

  • Adrien Rabiot: While the 27-year-old Juventus midfielder often plays second fiddle to both Pogba and Kante, he’s been afforded a potential starring role in their absence in Qatar. He took full advantage of this against Australia, heading in his third international goal to open the scoring before laying on a cute assist for Giroud’s first goal. Interestingly, Rabiot has scored all of his international goals since November 2021 (including one during WC qualifying), while he has earned a total of 30 caps to date. He has also won six league titles during his career, including five with PSG in France and one with Juventus.
  • William Saliba: Next up is a slightly left-field selection, with Arsenal centre back William Saliba having only won five caps since making his debut in March 2022. However, Saliba has finally forced his way into the Gunners’ first team after a couple of beneficial loan spells, providing an assured and cultured presence alongside his Brazilian teammate Gabriel. While it’s currently unclear how often he’ll start in Qatar, he has the momentum with him and could well force his way into the side before the tournament is out (particularly with the Gunners playing so well).
  • Kylian Mbappe: No list of this type would be complete without PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe, with the 23-year-old forward having starred during the Russia World Cup in 2018. Mbappe already has 29 goas in 60 international caps, drawing close to the absent Benzema’s total despite playing considerably fewer matches. The striker, who has also scored 221 club career goals in just 309 appearances since his debut, is recognised as a big-game player too, while he’s among the ante-post favourites to win the Golden Boot in Qatar. He’s already opened his account in the Middle East too, while superbly laying on Giroud’s second in the 4-1 win over the Aussies.

✈️ Denmark World Cup Preview

The talented Danes are currently ranked 10th in the world by FIFA, and considered to be the eighth best side in Europe. While this is short of their peak of 3rd in the world achieved in 1997, there’s no doubt that Danish football is in rude health ahead of the World Cup.

The Danes’ ranking peak followed their surprise victory at Euro ‘92, when the majority of Denmark’s squad were called back from their summer holidays and asked to replace Yugoslavia (who were forced to withdraw following the breakup of the country and subsequent outbreak of civil warfare).

This current Danish side has also excelled of late, reaching the semi-finals at Euro 2020 before being eliminated 2-1 against England after extra-time. They also won 11 of their subsequent 14 matches between September 1st 2021 and the start of the World Cup, including four UEFA Nations League victories that ultimately saw them finish second in League A behind nearest rivals Croatia.

While the Danes have also recorded two victories against France in 2022 alone, they laboured heavily during their 0-0 draw with Tunisia in Group D. So, they’ll need to up their game significantly if they’re to once again beat a French side that often lifts its own level for the biggest of occasions.

🏆 Denmark World Cup History

Qatar will see Denmark make just their sixth appearance at the World Cup finals, making them relative novices when compared to their Group D rivals France.

They also failed to qualify for the finals until 1986, when a star-studded side featuring striker Preben Elkjær and the outstanding Michael Laudrup was backed to go far in the competition. Despite progressing from the group stage and thumping Uruguay 6-1 with an irresistible display of attacking football, however, they exited in the round of 16 following a disastrous 5-1 defeat to Spain.

The Danes missed the next two finals in Italy and the USA, but France ‘98 saw a compact and disciplined side reach the quarter-finals. Both Michael and Brian Laudrup starred in their final campaign, and after reaching the second round, Denmark thumped Nigeria 4-1 in Saint-Denis. They also performed heroically in a topsy-turvy, 3-2 defeat to eventual finalists Brazil, narrowly failing to reach the semis for the first time.

Denmark have reached three of the subsequent five finals prior to Qatar, winning four of their 11 matches in total but never progressing beyond the round of 16. In 2018, they exited in the second round following a 3-2 penalty shootout defeat to Croatia, who also reached the final in Russia.

✔️ Denmark Qualification and Road to the World Cup 2022

Denmark were one of the first sides to qualify for the 2022 World Cup finals, as they dominated UEFA qualification Group F and won their first nine matches (out of 10 in total).

To this end, they finished four points clear of second-place Scotland and scored an impressive 30 goals in total. They also conceded a paltry three, keeping clean sheets in each of their first eight matches before conceding against the Faroe Islands.

Notable performances included an 8-0 thrashing of Moldova at home during the second game week, while the Danes’ 5-0 thumping of Israel in September 2021 also highlighted their impressive form.

⭐ Denmark Players to Watch

The chances are that you’ll be familiar with most of Denmark’s expected World Cup squad, with the majority of players spread across Europe’s top five leagues. But who are the country’s standout performers? Let’s find out!

  • Mikkel Damsgaard: Brentford recently snapped up the 22-year-old Danish forward Mikkel Damsgaard for a bargain fee of just €15 million from Serie A side Sampdoria. Make no mistake; the wide attacker shone at Euro 2020, becoming the youngest Danish player to score in the finals (against Russia at the age of 20 years and 353 days) and hitting a sublime free-kick in the semi-final loss to England. In total, Damsgaard has four goals in 19 international caps to date, while he’s also laid on countless chances for others during this time. He only appeared as a substitute against Tunisia, but he’ll hoping to start for the Danes against France.
  • Christian Eriksen: Despite suffering a nearly fatal cardiac arrest in Denmark’s Euro 2020 opener against Finland, Cristian Eriksen has completed a remarkable physical recovery. To this end, he’s now playing for Manchester United and will be looking to add further to his 118 international caps in Qatar. Eriksen’s international career has spanned four major tournaments (he was the youngest player at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa), while his impressive tally of 38 goals makes him his country’s joint-fifth highest goalscorer and a key attacking threat in the Middle East..
  • Joakim Mæhle: While Atalanta’s 25-year-old Danish wing-back Joakim Mæhle may ostensibly be a defensive player, he’s undoubtedly one of his country’s best attacking outlets. This is borne out by his exceptional record of nine goals in 29 international appearances, including two during the Euro 2020 finals (which also featured a superlative, outside-of-the boot assist against the Czech Republic in the quarters) and four in 2022 WC qualifying matches. He can also play on the left or right and is equally comfortable with both feet, while he performed solidly from the left-hand side (albeit unspectacularly) in the 0-0 draw with Tunisia..

🥇 France vs Denmark Prediction - Who Will Win?

Interestingly, these sides have met three times at the World Cup since 1998. Les Bleus prevailed 2-1 in the first meeting, with the Danes gaining revenge four years’ later with a 2-0 victory in Incheon. The sides drew 0-0 in the Russia World Cup in 2018.

Overall, France have won eight of the 15 matches they’ve contested against Denmark since their first meeting in 1973, while they were unbeaten against the Danes in 20 years prior to the 2-1 home UEFA Nations League loss this June. So, although they’ve lost their last two matches against the Danes (both in 2022), they don’t regularly experience defeat against their UEFA rivals.

Clearly, the bookies make Les Bleus clear favourites to add to their haul of victories in Qatar and build on the 4-1 win over Australia, but we’d argue that the current odds don’t quite reflect the Danes’ recent form and the evenly matched nature of both sides.

Ultimately, we’re also backing the French to win narrowly at Ras Abu Aboud, but the game is incredibly difficult to call and Denmark will be sure to push their opponents all the way!

🔍 Our France vs Denmark Betting Tips?

While we’re backing France to win, their current ante-post odds don’t offer much in the way of value. In fact, the backing the Danes to win is far more appealing with a small stake, with GunsBet Sports offering odds of 4.40 at present.

Another tempting wager is backing both sides to score, with France and Denmark boasting potent attacks and having plundered a combined total of 48 goals in 18 matches between them during qualifying. You can get on this at a price of 2.05 with William Hill and Ladbrokes, so we’d get on this while you can!

Because of this, we’d also back there to be over 2.5 goals scored in the game. This outcome is priced as high as 2.25 with William Hill, and it can deliver a tidy return even on a relatively small stake.
