Teams of France and Denmark are considered obvious favorites in their group. In the second round at the 974 stadium in Doha, they will decide who exactly will determine the playoffs World Cup in Qatar. Deschamps’ team, of course, has a much better chance of an early exit, but injuries to key players are already interfering.
Face-to-face meetings and recent matches
Surprisingly, in the last draw of the League of Nations, the Danes beat the French twice in a row: 2:0 and 2:1.

France failed the League of Nations, winning only one victory over Austria in 6 matches, losing twice to Denmark and Croatia. The Danes in LN have two defeats from the Croats
Team squads and leaders
The French national team will definitely not include Kante and Pogba, two people who are involved in the last French champion at the World Cup. Most of the main defenders are also injured, from Varane and Hernandez to Kimpembe. It is not known which of them will take part in the 2022 World Cup matches, but the French attack is divine - Mbappe, Dembele and Benzema with Giroud are still in build. Denmark has no problems with injuries - Eriksen returned to big football on the spot, Heiberg is the main player at Tottenham, young forwards Dolberg and Hoyland play great for the national team. Schmeichel is on goal, Kjer is on defense. In general, the Danes have a very balanced squad of strong players from great European clubs. They don’t have bright stars like Dembele, but they have Damsgaard, who flashed at Euro 2021.
Prediction for the match France - Denmark
The meeting promises to be very productive - both teams are set to attack, there are amazing performers in the lineups. The match of the second round of group D will be decisive in the fight for first place, France is the favorite, their attack is one of the best in the tournament, the organized Danes are unlikely to be able to withstand such pressure for 90 minutes. Although they may well snap back.
- TB (2.5) for 2.1;
- French victory for 1.9.
It is also logical to bet corners on TB in a match in a bookmaker, where there are bets on statistics, both teams actively use flanks and crosses.
