France vs Denmark Preview
Denmark are currently in third place in Group D and made an uninspiring start to their World Cup campaign. The Danes were held to a disappointing 0-0 draw by Tunisia in their opening game and face an uphill battle this weekend.
France, on the other hand, are at the top of their group and will be intent on securing their place in the knock-outs with a victory on Saturday. Les Bleus thrashed Australia by a comfortable 4-1 scoreline in their previous game and will look to achieve a similar result in this fixture.

France vs Denmark Prediction
France outclassed the Socceroos in their opening game and remain one of the favorites to win the World Cup. Kylian Mbappe and Olivier Giroud have been in impressive form so far and will be intent on adding to their goal tallies in this fixture.
Denmark have troubled France in the past but will find their opponents on a high going into this game. France are the better team at the moment and hold a slight upper hand this weekend. We expect the French to secure a narrow victory.
Prediction: France 2-1 Denmark
