What should have been a highly entertaining game could turn out to be a damp squib because Denmark only need a point to be certain of qualifying for the next round and France are already safely through.
Denmark have not been overly convincing so far. They were the second-best team when the beat Peru 1-0 and Australia were worth their point in the 1-1 draw played between the two.
France seem to be just going through the motions at the moment and doing the bare minimum to scrape through games.They struggled to beat Australia and Peru were the better side for much of their encounter with Les Bleus and we believe Denmark can frustrate them even more and claim a share of the spoils.

Denmark vs France World Cup Preview
Both Denmark and France have been less than convincing in their opening two group games and are likely to go through the motions in this third and final fixture as Denmark only need a point and France are already safely through.
How Denmark perform in this latest battle depends on Christian Eriksen. The Tottenham Hotspur midfielders has score 15 goals in his last 15 games and has also three assists during that time. France will need to stay tight on Eriksen and prevent him from having too much freedom otherwise he has the ability to tear them apart.
Age Gareide, the Danish coach, will be forced into at least one change because Yussuf Poulsen is suspended for this game after picking up two yellow cards. Poulsen scored the winner against Peru and is a key man when defending set pieces.
Gareide may also drop wideman Pione Sisto who has had an indifferent tournament so far and looks low on confidence.
France have assembled one their best squads in recent years, but you get the feeling they almost believe they can beat anyone in this tournament without giving 100 percent. The French have shown moments of brilliance yet they struggled to beat both Australia and Peru.
Coach Didier Dechamps has said he wants France to win Group C, something that will happen if France avoid defeat. With the knockout stages looming, however, Dechamps should be instructing his players to step their game up a gear or two and show the world what they are capable of.
One bright spark in the French team is Kylian Mbappe. Not only did he become France’s youngest player to score for France at a major tournament, aged 19 years, 183 days, he has had a hand in eight goals in his past nine games for France, scoring and assisting four. Should Mbappe score against Denmark he will become only the sixth teenager in history to score more than once at a World Cup finals.
With five of Denmark’s previous nine games ending in a draw, all six of their previous six games ending under 2.5 goals and the fact the Danes only need one point to reach the knockout stages, everything is pointing towards a share of the spoils in this fixture.
The draw is +165 with Bovada and looks the best bet to make, especially with France being out of sorts right now. Bovada also price the 0-0 and 1-1 draw at +450 showing that even the bookmakers believe this match will end in a stalemate, which is bad news for Australian fans as it means their World Cup campaign would come to an abrupt end.
