Denmark vs France preview

A point or better for France would see them top the group ahead of Denmark., however a win for Denmark would see them top the group. Both teams would want to avoid second place as that would see them pair up with the very impressive Croatia in the last 16. Winning the group means they would probably come up against the unpredictable Nigerians, although it is not beyond the realms of possibility that it could be Argentina.
France have yet to set the tournament on fire despite possessing a really good team. Deschamps, famously called a,"water carrier" by Eric Cantona was a pragmatic footballer and he is a pragmatic manager. He has such attacking wealth at his disposal but he hasn't let the handbrake off yet. I would be really excited to watch this team if they were allowed to play with freedom and really express themselves. Denmark will be their usual hard-working and disciplined selves and hope that their playmaker Christian Eriksen will conjure up something special. Both teams need a point, I would be surprised if both teams don't get a point.

Final score prediction: 1-1

Odds:   Denmark   10/3   Draw   13/8   France   11/10

Best bet:  half-time/full-time   France/draw   16/1
