Nations League preview and odds


AAfter contrasting results on Thursday, Denmark and France meet on Sunday with very different goals from their last game in Nations League Group A1 in Copenhagen (kick-off at 19:45 CEST).

Denmark lost 2-1 in Croatia midweek, surrendering the top spot to their conquerors. A point behind, they now have to beat France and hope Austria will do them a favor by beating Croatia on Sunday.

France defeated Austria 2-0 to move bottom of the table and a win here would save them from relegation to the second tier of the competition.

France crashes parking party

Home and away defeats by Croatia, the latter midweek, have made this match against France at the Parken stadium a must for Denmark if they hope to reach the Nations League finals.

Kasper Hjulmand’s team won the return leg in Paris 2-1 in June, Andreas Cornelius scoring twice after Karim Benzema put France ahead. But the defeat in Zagreb has left them a point behind the Croatians, who are traveling to Vienna for their final group game against Austria.

Meanwhile, the world champion won the competition for the first time when he defeated Austria 2-0 in Paris on Thursday. Kylian Mbappe and Olivier Giroud scored as France put on a performance that suggests they could reach their peak when they defend their trophy in Qatar this autumn.

Danish defense sees stars

While there is still a chance of a place in the finals, Denmark are likely to push France to the limit on Sunday and if there is one area they can exploit it’s the Le Bleus defence.

Didier Deschamps has often chosen a back three to be able to fit Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann and one from Benzema or Giroud in his starting XI.

That could leave gaps for the Danes to exploit, but while they have the firepower to find the net, France’s outstanding forward line should outclass them.

Mbappe has the world at his feet

It’s been four years since Mbappe emulated Pelé by becoming just the second teenager to score in a World Cup final and the Paris Saint-Germain striker has continued to improve ever since.

Mbappe, now 23, has scored seven goals in as many Ligue 1 games and three in two Champions League games this season.

He also scored against Austria on Thursday and seems to be in an irresistible form that will worry Denmark and France’s World Cup opponents later in the year.

Tip: Kylian Mbappe hits @ SP with Betfred anytime
