France and Denmark met in Stade de France to begin their Nations League campaign last June. Andreas Cornelius scored a brace in that match to beat France 1-2.
In the next few games, France shared the spoils with Croatia and Austria before suffering a 0-1 defeat to Croatia.
Though Deschamps’ men won against Austria last Thursday, their hopes for the Nations League next round are gone.
On the other hand, Denmark is fresh off a 2-1 defeat against Croatia. The result saw themselves a point behind Croatia in Group A1 heading into this match.
However, Christian Eriksen and co. Still have hopes to qualify for the next round. They need at least a point against France and hope Croatia loses against Austria.
More importantly, it’s going to be the last match for both France and Denmark before they fly to Qatar for the World Cup 2022. The coaches will look into the strategic game before facing the World Cup.
Team News and Lineup
Jesper Lindstrom missed out on the last match due to illness. He would feature from the bench in this match.
Christian Eriksen scored a stunner in their 2-1 defeat against Croatia in the last match. He would start this one as well.
Probable Lineup (3-4-2-1): Schmeichel; Andersen, A Christensen, Kjaer; Kristensen, Hojbjerg, Delaney, Maehle; Damsgaard, Eriksen; Dolberg
With the World Cup 2022 on the horizon, Didier Deschamps must be crying with his injury list.
Les Bleus’ regulars Hugo Lloris, Karim Benzema, N’Golo Kante, Adrien Rabiot, Kingsley Coman, and Paul Pogba are currently sidelined.
Moreover, Mike Maignan and Jules Kounde were both substituted against Austria after picking up problems.
Probable Lineup (3-4-1-2): Areola; Saliba, Varane, Upamecano; Clauss, Camavinga, Tchouameni, Mendy; Griezmann; Mbappe, Giroud
Denmark vs France Prediction:
It will be the last match for France and Denmark before they fly to Qatar for the World Cup 2022. The coaches will look into the strategic game before facing the World Cup.
However, Le Bleus are ravaged by injuries. We may see a vastly different XI in the World Cup from the one tonight. Kylian Mbappe and co. will be keen to win this one and bring momentum to Qatar.
On the other hand, Denmark has been unpredictable. They beat France but lost against Croatia twice. They will try to win this one at home and bring momentum to the World Cup.
Denmark 1-1 France.
