Denmark vs. France odds
- – A draw at full-time – 49/20

- – Denmark to score 1/2
Denmark host France on Sunday afternoon looking to extend their unbeaten run over the World Champions. Kaspar Hjulmand’s side won 2-1 in their last encounter with Les Bleus in the reverse fixture and held Didier Deschamps’ side to a goalless draw in the 2018 World Cup group stage.
With the 2022 World Cup fast approaching, this round of Nations League fixtures may not be the most important for either manager. However, as the final international break before the tournament kicks off in November, it provides a vital opportunity to prepare the squads ahead of time. As a result, Sunday’s match could well be decided by managerial approach. Is it better to build momentum or test out potential tactics?
Denmark undoubtedly have form on their side in the Nations League, especially compared to France’s surprisingly poor performance in the competition. That being said, the visitors’ squad is so full of world-class talent that it is unwise to write them off. Ahead of Sunday’s game, a draw would be a reasonable prediction for the final score.
The host’s success in recent years has been firmly built on a well-organised, highly competitive team. Against France’s myriad of attacking talent, Hjulmand may look to defend deep, sacrificing possession as he did in the last encounter. This is likely to result in a lower scoreline than at the Parc des Princes with a punt on under 2.5 goals potentially paying off.
Even so, viewers are not likely to be in for a boring encounter. With so much attacking talent on display, it is likely that France will break the deadlock. Denmark have also only failed to score in one of their last six games. Both teams to score therefore looks likely with our tip on Kylian Mbappe to score anytime for the visitors.
France’s leaky defence will be an area of confidence for the hosts. They have not kept a clean sheet in four of their last five games. As a result, a punt on Denmark to score could pay off.

Denmark team news
Kaspar Hjulmand is without centre forwards Jonas Wind and Andreas Cornelius whilst centre-back Robert Skov also misses out. Denmark are expected to field their strongest line-up on Sunday with ex-Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen partnering Spurs’ current anchor, Pierre-Emile Højbjerg. The United midfielder could also be used higher up the pitch allowing Mathias Jensen to shore up the centre of the park.
France team news
A host of injuries for Didier Deschamps means the manager will look to try out some youth options during the international fixtures. France may field a three-man midfield with exciting Real Madrid midfielders Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelien Tchouameni at the core. Jules Kounde will also hope to feature and could slot in either at centre-back or at right back where he has featured for Barcelona this season.
