A victory for Denmark would see them progress to the Round of 16 if Peru fail to beat France in the game later on the same day. Australia would no longer be able to progress from the Group if they do not win against Denmark and France take at least a point against Peru.
The Danes were not firing on all cylinders in their game against Peru but they do have better players at their disposal than Australia can call upon, something mentoned by coach Age Hareide in a press conference.
Australia, however, are used to being underdogs and can draw plenty of positives from their defeat to France. If they catch Denmark having another bad day at the office, Australia are definitely worth a point.

Denmark vs Australia World Cup Preview
Danish fans will be hoping that their national team puts in a much better performance when they take on Australia in a game that could all but guarantee their first appearance in the knockout stages of the World Cup since 2002.
Denmark have the heroics of goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel to thanks for coming away from the Peru match with all three points; the Leicester City stopper was in superb form. It is a shame the same cannot be said for Christian Eriksen as he struggled to get a hold of the game and Denmark struggled without their talismanic player playing to the best of his ability.
Eriksen did create a little bit of magic and provided the assist when Yussuf Poulson scored; Poulson made amends for giving away an earlier penalty that Peru fired over the crossbar. It was only Poulson’s fourth international goal in 27 appearances, but it could be one of the most important of his career.
Even without Eriksen being at his best, Denmark had 10 shots on goal and three of those were on target. There would have been five shots needing saving had Peruvian defenders not blocked two goalbound strikes.
Australia were unlucky not to come away with a point against France, a team that is one of the favorites to win the entire tournament. There were large parts of the game where France did not look like they knew how to break down the resolute Australian defense and you have to put that down to a solid Aussie performance.
France started brightly in that game and Australia looked a little overawed by the situation, yet when France went ahead courtesy of a penalty awarded by the VAR team, Australia were spurred into life instead of allowing their heads to drop.
The Aussies fell victim of VAR again when a video reply showed Paul Pogba’s shot, which deflected off Aziz Behich, had crossed the goal line. This resigned Australia to another World Cup defeat, but they showed enough promise in this game that Denmark will be wary of them.
Bovada price Denmark to win at -110 with an Australia victory judged to be +345. We prefer the draw at +345 mostly because both sides lack some serious firepower in the attacking third and the Australians showed they can defend well against three of the best forwards in the world when they took on France. We would not even be surprised by an Australia win, but only if you take the +0.5 spread. Doing so reduces the odds from +335 to -105.
Neutral fans will want Australia to win this to keep the group alive and interesting. A draw would keep Aussie hopes alive until they take on Peru in their final game of Group C and for that reason we’re opting for a 1-1 draw at +600.
