On Saturday night, France will resume FIFA World Cup 2022 Group D play against Denmark at Stadium 974, and a win would guarantee France a spot in the tournament’s knockout stage. While Les Bleus started off the defense of their title with a 4-1 thrashing of Australia this week, Kasper Hjulmand’s team was halted to a scoreless draw by Tunisia.  France vs Denmark Live Streaming, Prediction, Lineups & Preview Guide by Live Football TV.

France vs Denmark Preview

After Olivier Giroud’s record-tying brace against Australia on Tuesday, two former Arsenal strikers lead France’s all-time goalscoring records. Didier Deschamps’s team had struggled in the UEFA Nations League and surrendered to Craig Goodwin in the first nine minutes, but Giroud’s 50th and 51st goals for France, along with headers from Adrien Rabiot and Kylian Mbappe, turned the game around.

Giroud only needs one more goal to overtake Henry and score a record-breaking 52nd goal for his country, which may secure France’s participation in the last 16. With a win, the incumbent world champions will secure a position in the knockout rounds and maybe the top spot if Tunisia and Australia draw. France can now try to win six games in a row at a World Cup finals for the first time in their history, matching Spain’s 2010 golden generation.

Denmark’s opening against Tunisia was forgettable despite Christian Eriksen’s return from cardiac arrest at Euro 2020. Manchester United fans loved Eriksen’s midfield flare. Tunisia would have felt the most aggrieved if they hadn’t played out one of the few 0-0 draws in round one. One of the round-one matches was between the two teams. Hjulmand says Group D is “difficult” for his team. Despite being in third place in the group with fair play points separating them from second place, they still have a chance to finish in the top two regardless of what happens this weekend.

The Scandinavians have drawn their last four World Cup matches, but they might make history today. Denmark might become only the second team to draw five successive games on the greatest stage, but they have kept three clean sheets in their last four games, which is a promising sign. They defeated France 2-0 in their penultimate Nations League match before the World Cup. They had earlier defeated France 2-1 in June. In the 2002 World Cup group stage, they overcame France, the defending champions, 2-0.

France vs Denmark Team News

Left-back Lucas Hernandez tore his anterior cruciate ligament in the build-up to Goodwin’s goal for Australia on Tuesday, continuing France’s injury woes before, after, and during the World Cup. The Bayern Munich star will be replaced by sibling Theo Hernandez, who played well after replacing his ailing cousin.

Due to a hip injury, Kingsley Coman missed Friday’s training session, but Raphael Varane was fit to play against the Socceroos as Dayot Upamecano and Ibrahima Konate partnered at the back. A fully fit Varane will be considered for a spot, and the Liverpool man may be the unfortunate one to drop out.

Denmark’s Sevilla midfielder Thomas Delaney was injured at halftime against Tunisia and had to withdraw from the competition.

Hjulmand has no new concerns for Saturday’s game and could consider lowering Eriksen into a deeper role alongside Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg after Delaney’s injury, allowing Mikkel Damsgaard or Jesper Lindstrom to join the attack. After hitting the post from a yard out against Tunisia, Andreas Cornelius should only be considered as a substitute alongside Yussuf Poulsen.

France possible XI:
Lloris; Kounde, Varane, Upamecano, T. Hernandez; Tchouameni, Rabiot; Dembele, Griezmann, Mbappe; Giroud

Denmark possible XI:

France vs Denmark Prediction

France’s impressive opening-day win has given them confidence, despite their many injury problems. Denmark’s excellent wins against France in and out of the World Cup should give the Red and Whites hope, but a lackluster attacking display against Tunisia has not set them up well for a meeting with the holders, who we think will cruise to the last 16.
