World Cup in Qatar has prepared for us an interesting match between Denmark and Tunisia in the first round. The first matches are always difficult to evaluate, but we can rely on the extreme results of both teams. World Cup 2022 Teams will start full of energy and motivation. After all, they did not just qualify for the World Cup with great fortitude. Therefore, from this match we expect, obviously, a stable and restrained game of the Danish national team and strong-willed football from the Tunisian team.
What did the teams go through on the way to the World Cup
Denmark qualified for the Fifa World Cup quite simply, but it will be more interesting to consider their results in the League of Nations. There, the team was defeated only by the Croats, but, in contrast, twice beat both the French team (2-1; 2-0) and Austria (2-1; 2-0). Apparently the Croats were able to find an approach to the explosive but disciplined playing style of the Danes. But Deschamps’ wards and the Austrians, on the contrary, succumbed to pressure and could not overcome the Scarlet Guard.
Tunisia is not as strong a team as Denmark. Obviously, they don’t have much experience of playing with really strong European teams. Qatar is ready to give them this experience, but is the national team ready? From the last matches before the World Cup, they have victories over Japan (0-3), over the Comoros team (0-1) and a major defeat from the Brazilians (5-1). What kind of match results can be expected from Tunisia and whether they will compete for the playoffs is a big question.
Leaders of the national teams and their weight in the confrontation
The Danish team has an excellent selection. Incredibly diverse selection of players: both experienced and young and promising. Separately, I would like to note several fundamentally important players in each of the lines. The first matches at the World Cup in Qatar should show whether it really is. Kasper Schmeichel is an excellent goalkeeper and leader of the national team, Simon Kjær is the backbone of the Danish defense, Christian Eriksen is the team manager and Yussuf Poulsen is an excellent finisher. Each of them must contribute to the exit of his team in the playoffs.
In Tunisia, I would like to mention two players: Ali Maalul and Wahbi Khazri. These are two incredibly experienced veterans of the national team. They have a lot of matches behind them and it is they who can become the factor that will bring their national team closer to the exit from the group.
Probable outcomes for the match
In this group D event, I would like to highlight the following outcomes: both will score, since Tunisia is such a team that will score one in any case. Denmark will have no choice but to compare. You can also take Tunisia’s individual total for goals - 0.5 B. From the boring one, you can easily catch the victory of Denmark with a good coefficient.
|Both teams to score - yes||2.34|
|Total naked Tunisia - 0.5 B||2|
